The starter solenoid is staying engaged, change that and it should cure the problem. My 85 ford did the same thing, put a new solenoid on it,solved problem.

Why won't it start?

it appears that you have to check beginning at the Battery on to the Fuse Box, down to the Starter, and on to the Ignition

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.

Same problem. 1992 nissan kingcab with v-6. starter and battery good-had them tested. Wires clean. new ignition switch-needed it. turned over once, once only still clicks when key is turned. Help

By wires clean do you mean battery termanal wires?
This sounds way to much like the battery cable ends need to be cleaned. Not only the inside of the termanal ends but the posts as well as take the ends off the cables and clean the copper wires where they connect. Then follow the positive cable to the solinoid and check connections coming in and going out to the starter. Check where it connects to the starter and tighten if needed. If none of these does the trick will it start with a jump? If not will it start with a push if it is a standard shift? Let me know how it turns out, Good Luck, The Raz

Turn the key and get one click.battery is

Bad starter and/or starter wires leading from battery. Also could be a fuse and/or relay. Have your starter tested at a parts dealer.

I changed the positive cable from battery to starter now truck won't start won't even turn over. i think i put the new cable on the right post ???

There are three posts, a small one that the ignition wire goes on to, and 2 large ones, one that has a braided wire that goes into the starter and one that stands alone. The one that stands alone is the one you need to connect the battery cable to. Check the starter wire from the ignition and make sure the connection at the battery is good.

1991 Nissan 240SX starter will not turn!

If you've applied 12VDC to the solenoid and it does nothing, not even click, then the solenoid is toast!

1986 king cab

I've had similiar issues with a different vehicle. I had to purchase new plugs, rotor, and distributor/spark plug wires. I was running on three cylinders verses four. I did not notice until I was going up hills, where it required more power. If you have a tachometer, keep an eye on it. If it is running slower than it should that could be an indication that there is a problem with the wiring. (probably should be doing about 2500 rpm)

I had a Hyundai that did just the opposite. It would peg the tach to 3,000 rpm well before it was time to shift. Ended up being an ignition coil went bad, which takes the place of the distributer. I replaced the ignition coil and now the engine doesn't have to run as high.
