SOURCE: I have a 2000 Nissan

The starter is bad the contacts in the solonoid are worn and you need a new starter but do not for any reason go for the cheapest one Nissan needs a specific cranking RPM and most cheap aftermarket starters cannot give what it needs.
Also have the battery Load tested and replace it at the same time if it fails or is even close to failing
if this information is helpful please give me a good rating, Thank You, Randy

SOURCE: truck sometimes starts and sometimes wont. i hear a clicking soun

Unbolt and clean your battery terminals if dirty or corroded, preferably replace the bolts (good auto parts stores stock them, and they take some effort to remove and replace them but it's necessary to properly clean the terminals anyway) charge, jump or replace battery ... connect battery terminals and don't over tighten ... start the truck, check charging system gauges confirm charging voltage over 12V 13.8V-14.5V and lights should be bright as normal ... if so, you may be fixed ... if not you have charging system issues, that will be the next post if needed.

Sounds like a fuel pump, I would have a shop check it out. Mine did the same thing when the fuel pump went out on my 01 Sierra. Good Luck

SOURCE: 2006 Ram 1500, turn key to start, door alarm,

If all electrical seems to be ok, but there is no engine turn over . I know exactly what it is. behind your fuse panel you will find a solinoid attached to the fender. Remove it and replace and your problem will be solved. Same thing happened to me. Thought it was the shifter or something, until I found the switch behind the fuse panel and replaced it. Problem fixed!!

May be ab bad starter solenoid, or corroded/loose connection at starter, or (ground). Could also be a bad ignition switch. Start from the load; the starter. Test for 12V at starter, OK. Connect short wire from starter and touch sylenoid connection..
