If you hear clicking, that eliminates safety circuitry. If you have great battery power, thpically there is an issue inside the starter. It takes a fair amount of amps to fire a starter and those contacts evnetually build up carbon and intermittantly fail.

You did not mention how old the starter is. If old, replace or rebuild and specifically test and examine the armature. When over cranked, they short and some positions no longer pass current correctly. Other times it will work.

Long story short, easiest to just replace it, you do not want to get stuck..

#1 Try starting the car in Neutral, if no start replace the Park and Neutral safty switch. #2 Check for a faulty starter solenoid. #3 Check for a faulty stsrter motor. #4 Check for a faulty ignition switch. #5 Check for faulty starter Relays.#6 Check the Transmission Range sensor it could be out of adjustment or defective. #7 On 1998 and later models, the power relay is in the power distribution box in the engine compartment. Refer to your owners manual for more information on relay location. Good Luck From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.

94 Altima, drivin along, just lost power, still had radio & lights, will turn over but will not start


Very good possibility that the Fuel Pump has gone out.
Find the Fuel Port on the Fuel Rail going to the Fuel Injectors. Remove the cap. Pack plenty of rags or paper towels around that area. Wear goggles to protect your eyes from Gas Spray! Using another wadded rag or paper towel partially covering this port and a small screw driver - depress the stem inside this port. Have a partner turn the Key over attempting to start the vehicle. A strong stream of gas should come out.
If no gas is coming out: check the Fuel Pump Relay/Fuses. Use a Voltmeter to check for voltage at these locations. The reading should be 11+ to 12 -volts.
If there is Voltage: Again with a partner behind the wheel, remove the gas cap. Place your ear up very close to the Gas Filler Tube (where you put gas in). Have your partner turn the key over to the On (not Start) Position which is the position just before Start. You should faintly hear the Fuel Pump humming. Have your partner turn the Key to the Start Position, again you should hear a very faint humming (over the car cranking).
If there is not indication of humming: Jack-Up and properly support the rear of the vehicle with jack stands. Once again with a partner behind the wheel: go under the vehicle and place your ear up close or on the gas tank. Have your partner turn the Key to the On Position. You should hear the humming.
If not, have your partner turn the Key to the Start Position. There should be humming.
If no humming there is a great chance your fuel pump has gone out.
Based on your year (1994) this is highly probable.
HOWEVER: If there is humming, change out your Fuel Filter and recheck for fuel at the fuel rail.

Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at Fix Ya.com!

no starter relay is always at the fuse relay box at the engine compartment. The relay that you hear is the relay for the accessories to turn off the power during starting position.

I have Manual Nissan Altima 1997. It does not crank.


If you can hear the starter solenoid click, when you turn the key to start, then check that the large positive wire going to the starter solenoid from the battery has a good contact at each end. If you don't hear the solenoid click, then check that the small wire going to the starter solenoid has a good contact and power.

I have nissan altima 1997. It does not at all crank. It starts when pushed. I changed the battery.


I'm guessing that you have a manual transmission since you said it starts when pushed. Your best bet would be to check your neutral safety switch which is directly behind your clutch pedal. make sure gear selector is in neutral you may try moving the wires around (sometimes they may lose their connection)while pushing the button in and attempting to start the vehicle. Also when you turn your key to crank your vehicle does your engine turn over and just doesn't start or does nothing at all happen. There are a few possible variables if your could describe everything that does or does not happen.
