Could be your starter, battery or fuel sys. Most common are starter and / or battery. Regarding the battery, make sure your terminals are clean and the battery is securely fastened to them. If you turn the key and absolutely nothing happens then check your battery connections as stated above. If they look good but the battery is old (3-5 years), and still no start - replace battery.

If the starter is the issue, you will hear a distinct, slightly disconcerting sound coming from underneath passenger side area of the engine compartment. This is the sound of the starter trying to engage the engine - but without success. You can take it to any shop and have it replaced for $200-$500 out the door depending on what brand starter you have installed. PEP boys has them for $107.00 plus a $95/hr install fee (the jobs takes about 1 hour).

If your fuel system is the culprit (make sure you're not out of gas first) it is most likely a faulty fuel pump (common) or clogged fuel filter.

Where can i find the starter on a nissan frontier 2004

The starter on the Nissan Frontier is a motor that is connected to the battery that runs the ignition process of the truck. When you turn the key to start the truck, this will send an electrical signal to the starter motor that turns the flywheel. The flywheel in turns moves the crankshaft. When the starter goes bad or teeth on the starter gear get chipped this will prevent the truck from starting. Locating the starter is the first step in replacing it.
  • Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Locate the battery to the passenger side of the engine compartment.
  • Identify the positive terminal of the battery. This will be indicated by the (+) symbol above the terminal.
  • Trace the red cable that is attached to the positive terminal. The cable will run from the battery down to the side of the motor.
  • Locate the end of the red cable as it is attached to the starter. The starter will be attached to a bracket by the motor with the back of the starter connected to the bell housing of the transmission.
  • Remove the front passenger side tire for easier access to the starter. This will also give you plenty of room to remove the starter.
I hope this helps.

Good luck.

Make sure you have 12 volts from the positive side of the battery to the starter. Check the small wire on the starter solenoid and make sure you have 12 volts when cranking engine. If voltage is correct, the starter is bad

I have a 1998 Nissan Frontier. It will not start. I have check fuses and starter and battery. Have power but won't start. Cannot locate the Starter Relay Switch. Where exactly is it located?

Does the starter crank the engine over? Saying your truck won't start could mean that the starter spins be the engine won't fire. If the starter is not spinning is it at least clicking?
