It is underneath the car, just follow the pos lead from the battery, since you are going to bang on it, you might as well take a screwdriver and arc it across the starter terminals as someone turns the key, it will arc but it will start. Good Luck Tim

96 pathfinder tries to crank, but wont

If it will not crank, I would check for power at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch.
If it cranks but will not start, you will need to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem to proceed.

Replacing a starter

Replacing the starter on a 96 Avalon is incredibly simple. I did it in the parking lot of a store. Just bring your ratchet set and you will be good to go. I took out the old starter, had a friend bring me to autozone and I bought a new one. Its easy to locate, easy to remove and easy to install.

My 1996 dodge neon wont start. I was told it was the starter because it would start after we banged on it with a hammer. When I parked the car it wouldn't start unless i push start it or banged on the...

The starter relay or starter solenoid would be my guess, but I am wondering what the gears on the old starter looked like. If they were in really bad shape (deformation or chunks missing) you may need to replace the flywheel.

Does banging on the starter actually help it activate if it is stuck? I am unable to start my car and previously a friend was able to get it running by banging on the starter while I turned the ignition....

Banging on the starter can shock it enough to free a stuck starter solenoid, the smaller cilindrical part on the top. This might even get a few more starts out of the starter but I would recomend getting it started and bringing it to a shop, or replacing it. its only going to go out on you again and maybe in a worse spot then it is right now.

1994 Nissan Pathfinder won't start, even jumping it.

I had a similar problem w/ my 94 Pathfinder. The problem was a cheap security system that was offered in that year model and the wiring between the ignition and the starter was run through this system. The dealership was able to by pass the security system and this fixed the problem. For years other mechanics told me it was the starter but I knew it was something else.
