Are your battery connections clean and tight? The clicking sound indicates the solenoid is not engaging the starter motor. It could be either a bad solenoid or starter motor.

The clicking sound is made by the relays. Most probable is the induction coil is damaged, thus not producing the spark for ignition. You can check it out by removing any one of the cables from the plug and hold it near any metal part of the engine block & have someone crank the engine. If no sparks fly out then the coil needs to be replaced.

However do check the fuses behind the dashboard on the drivers side first!

SOURCE: have power when I turn key just clicking, wont start

Your right the battery cables and where they go to are very likly to be the problem. The engine could had rusted not turning and may have to be (forced) with wrenck or prybar to get er turning. Try wacking on the starter ( wood handle of yousecond best hammer ) a real battery may not be in your car and it may have to be tested just cause it started the old beater or is new out of the discount house doesn't mean its good. Most all auto parts store can test your battery for free

It's your starter. Find location of your starter. By the flywheel. Then. Bang on it . Your car will start. You still need to replace the starter.

sounds to me like your battery is no good. replace battery. how ever after the replacement of batery you will need to go to nissan dealer and have the "steering angle sensor"reset, because your VDC light will be ON on the dash.

The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Will not turn over. good batery and bright headlights and all the electical works. place the key in ignition and it dings. when you turn over you do not hear the silinoid clicking. what do you think?


With someone holding the key to the start position try tapping the starter motor with a hammer LIGHTLY. Make sure the vehicle is in PARK!!! It sounds as tho the starter is gone.

92 cadillac deville that will not start.


It sounds like your batery is empty.
Or maybe your start rotor is a bit stuck.
if so give it a hit with a rubber hammer that can help loosen it.
