Sounds like a poor battery connection or corroded wires where they join to the connectors. clean and/or replace.

Hi, what you hear is probably the starter relay which may have burned it's contacts. See if you can find it and swap it with a similar one. If the relay is good, the problem is the brown wire from the relay to the starter solenoid. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

My 2000 nissan alitma will not start. Battery is good but just clicks when I turn the key. I am 22 and don't have a clue about cars! Help


If the battery is good and the battery connections are conected correctly then the only thing it can be is the starter motor. the clicking noise is the selinoid jamming.

If the car is manual transmission remove the keys from the car put it in second gear and push it forward until you feel the car jump a little, this will turn the engine over without it running and will free up the jamming starter.

If it is an auto then locate the starter motor and hit it with a hammer a few times this again will free it up, although it may jam again in the future. if you are not sure where the starter motor is get someone to try start it while you look where the noise is coming from.

Hope this helps.

It may just be through lack of use or cold weather so do not replace it just yet.

My 2005 maxima wont start. when i turn the key there is a lot of clicking noises but no turn over. Is this a starter problem?

If it just clicks once when you turn the key it sounds like your battery. If it clicks multiple times when you turn the key, like a ratchiting sound, it is probably your starter.

Engine wont turn over their is a grinding sound when the key is turned on

starter or starter selinoid is the problem. Either the gear on the starter is worn or you might have a bad spot on the flywheel. Only other thing that it could be is the starter selinoid is not funtioning properly. Bottom line, you need a new starter or a new flywheel. But I would make sure that the 2 bolts that hold the starter in place are tight firstly.

The "clicking" is probably from the starter selinoid. If it's malfunctioning you'll get that clicking and nothing else. Follow cable back from starter to locate selinoid.

Even though the lights work the battery should be load tested to see if it can handle a heavy amp. draw like the starter.If you have a battery charger, but it on the battery and leave it for a few hours.Also check the battery connections to be sure they are clean. If it starts check to make sure the alternators is chargeing the battery.

1995 nissan pu wont start... everything turns on

check for power to the starter at the starter's connectors while you have someone turn the key. If there is power, change the starter. If not check your ignition switch, (manual trans)clutch pedal switch, and starter fuses/relays. Hopefully this helps
