Sounds like the starter needs a freshen up.
Solenoid should be the problem and when you jump the lugs on the start you are bypassing the solenoid .The solenoid is the little cylinder attached to the starter motor.
Contacts will be stuffed.
Hope this helps.

Why are 1994 pathfinder brake light, door ajar, check engine, and alternator lit?


when the battery is flat or removed from the engine then the CPU program can become corrupted . IT is always a good idea to use a scanner tool to reprogram the CPU properly to eliminate any faults that first show up before changing anything to the systems as this changes can create more problems than they solve especially if it was only a program problem to start with.

When turning over starter just clicks. there is power to the battery. it can be push started.it will not jump at the celeniod


One single click when you turn the key is a pretty good indicator that the starter is bad. If you hear multiple rapid clicks than its usually the battery. Since the vehicle will push start and run it sounds like you will be replacing the starter.

This is Indicative of a STARTER FAILURE (TRY) Smacking the Starter with a Hammer SOUNDS CRUDE But IS VERY IFECTIVE at Times when the Starter is on its LAST LEG. Replace Starter

1994 Nissan Pathfinder won't start, even jumping it.


I had a similar problem w/ my 94 Pathfinder. The problem was a cheap security system that was offered in that year model and the wiring between the ignition and the starter was run through this system. The dealership was able to by pass the security system and this fixed the problem. For years other mechanics told me it was the starter but I knew it was something else.
