No , it sounds like a dead or dieing battery. Check the voltage first, it should be 13.5 volts at any given time. If not, it will not crank the starter, if the voltage is good, 12.5 and up, then check the electrolytic fluid in the battery, one dead cell is all it takes. Get one of those floaty ball testers, about $2 and check it out. If it checks out, clean the terminals again and take the cables off the terminal itself and clean that too. then bolt it back up tight, Tap the terminal down on the post with a socket or pipe, then tighten it. You should get it by now. You can try tapping on the starter, but you just replaced it. You can check that connection though. Hope this helps.

Disconnect battery on 2003 nissan micra auto to clean and grease terminal, when reconnected car wont start all lights are on but wont turnover. Car was working perfect prior to disconnecting battery.


Just because lights are working does not mean you have a good enough connection to operate the starter motor. Try turning on headlamps, then try to crank it with someone looking at headlamps. If they dim badly or go out, recheck the battery terminal connections. Did you grease the areas that should make the connections? What grease did you use? Try cleaning connections with brake cleaner, sand or wire brush and reconnect without grease. If this works, grease the outside only to seal connections and prevent corrosion.

Why won t my car turnover


  • Okay, a clicking sound is the solenoid engaging the starter drive gear but the starting motor is not turning over. First possible is low battery. Second is bad or dirty connection, usually battery terminal. Good enough to energize solenoid but not enough amps to spin starter. Third is a bad starter motor, usually a brush corroded, worn or stuck.
  • Lift the hood and look at the battery terminals. if they are clean and tight, check the battery for charge. I usually hook a booster on and try cranking the engine over. ZIf it works, charge or replace the battery.
  • If it didn't crank, Take a jumper cable and connect the one end to the battery positive. Touch the other end to the starter motor terminal. Motor should turn over, if not, replace the starter.

I have a 2003 nissan sentra spec-v it was working fine, i parked it, went to crank it a lil while later an it wouldnt start. ivechecked all the basics, starter, fuses and nothing. its almost like the...


MIGHT BE A RELAY ! LOCATED UNDER HOOD, YOU SHOULD SEE RELAY BOX NEXT TO BATTERY. MAKE SURE BATTERY TERMINALS ARE CLEANED, PUT SOME VASOLINE ON TERMINALS, RECONNECT, TIGHTEN. CHECK ALL GROUND WIRES. ARELAY BOX MAY ALSO BE LOCATED NEXT TO POWER STEERING . COULD HAVE A FAULTY SOLONOID@ STARTER, IGNITION SWITCH COULD ALSO BE FAULTY, ITS NEVER EASY TO PINPOINT ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS, PROCESS OF ALIMINATION, CHECK ALL STARTING CIRCUIT SYSTEMS, IS YOUR SHIFT LEVER ALL THE WAY IN PARK ? DOES ENGINE CRANK ? OR DEAD, NO POWER ? ARE YOU GETTING SPARK ? HOW ABOUT FUEL ? DID YOU REPLACE BOTH THE AIR &FUEL FILTERS ? THE STARTER / SOLONOID IS WHAT CRANKS THE ENGINE, I THINK YOUR PROBLEM IS THERE ! REPLACE RELAY TO STARTING SYSTEM, ARE YOUR SPARK PLUG WIRES NEW ! THEY WILL SHORT OUT ANY SPARK IF OLD, DIRTY, I SUGGEST A TUNEUP, NEW FILTERS, AND REPLACE STARTER/SOLONOID !!!!!!

My 2005 nissan altima won't crank or turnover. It justs makes this clicking noise. Can you help me?


The click is most likely the starter solenoid you hear

Should be a familiar sound you've heard may times
on other cars

I would guess you know how old the battery is?

If it is original,it is 8 years old & dead,if so, replace it

If it is only 3 years old ,check the voltage with a meter

Next the solenoid could be working as you hear it,but
it's contacts are burnt,it can be replaced

You remove the starter & change the solenoid

Don't want to do that, buy the entire starter at auto parts,
not a dealer,cost too much to even be there for any reason.

My 97 Pathfinder won't turnover. It clicks, it gives one push but then does nothing. It starts when I jump it and after it's charged for a while, but when it's been sitting it's like t


could be poor connection from battery to battery cable terminal. take off both pos. & neg. battery terminals, clean & reinstall, making sure there is a tight connection. if the cables are loose (even just one) or if the battery cable seems degraded with corrosion, they should be replaced. could also do a load-test on the battery... it should stay strong under load, and shouldn't drop to below 11 volts under load. if it does you have a bad battery, even though it may seem good otherwise.

When trying to start it makes a a winding noise maybe like a relay switch. when you turn on the key on the driver side under hood you can hear a clicking/winding noise and the starter doesn't even turnover...


First check your battery, if it is OK, then it can be corroded terminals at the battery itself or where the heavy cables terminate; at the starter input terminal (+ cable) and where the negative is attached to either the block or chassis. Both ends of these cables should be cleaned now and then and either dielectric grease or even petroleum jelly can provide some protection against renewed corrosion. NOTE: ALWAYS disconnect the negative battery terminal first! If a tool slips and ends up between the + terminal and any grounded point, it may melt the tool. If the negative is first to be disconnected, it doesn't matter if you slip on this one.

Battery tests fine starter wont turnover


did you check for ignition signal at the starter? if not you should do this with a test light., also check the ground battery cable from battery to the engine block, be sure there is not corrosion on both battery cables and terminal...now if every thing looks normal take a hammer and bump the starter a couple of times if it cranks , then you need a new starter..hope this help

Will not crank


Cleaned battery terminals? Checked to make sure you have full 12v at the battery? Find the click noise and make sure if it's a relay, that power is getting through it to the starter, if not check the starter out.
