If the starter doesn't do anything. try a new starter relay in the power distribution center. it just might be the problem.

Have your battery tested to start the fact that the radio and lights work are not an indicator that the battery is good. if in fact battery is good and you hear a click and nothing else then make sure you got power at starter from ignition switch and power going to the actual starter motor while some one holds the key in the crank position. Do this safely. the starter should have power on the B+ terminalwhich comes directly from the battery. It also gets power when in the crank position to engage the solenoid in the Igniton terminal when engaged the power from B+ is tranfer to the the starter motor which in turn turns the engine if this isnt happening for you replace the starter

I have a 1991 nissan king cab and when i turn the key to on, all electronics in the cab work, fan lights radio ect, then i turn it to start and nothing happens, not a click not turning over nothing....


You could be correct, if the starter solenoid is bad and not making contact it will kill the entire electrical system and also not engage the starter motor. I would replace the solenoid. Please rate this answer, thanks.

Turn the key hear a click but nothing else. Still have dash lights etc. No engine cranking sound.


Sounds like a bad battery connection or bad battery. A battery can have enough power to light the instrument panel but not enough to engage starter motor. If the battery and connections proves to be good, then have the starter tested.

Check the leads to the starter motor again. There should be the negative battery lead, and two more wires. One has to be faulty. The battery is obviously OK.

If the wires are correct, undo the starter and slide it out, rock the car forward when it is in gear. This will move the flywheel. The flywheel might not be engaging with the starter teeth, hence nothing.

Vote for me if this helps, thanks.

Won't start getting nothing when i turn key


Recheck all your connections, battery. starter, look for fuseable link on small wire going to starter. Might want to chk.that wire with test light when key switch is in start position and see if it lights. If it does not light might be starter switch under dash on steering colume.
