Question about 2000 Nissan Xterra
Make sure the connection at the starter is good, ( the small wire). if connections are good even battery connections at battery then i would check out the neutral safty switch, next time it doesnt start try to put in neutral and see if it starts, if it does then switch is bad, i would start with these tests,

SOURCE: car will not start
Try running a wire from the little terminal of the starter motor to the Positive on the battery , Disconnect the little wire thats on there first.No need to turn the key on as we are bypassing this.This should cause the starter to turn.Make sure that if its a manual that its in Neutral.
If the starter motor turns then the problem is either the relay or the ignition switch.Or if its an automatic Transmission it could be the inhibitor switch .
Hope this helps

Remove the starter & inspect the contacts inside the starter solenoid housing. If they are burnt and/or worn, you will get this condition. Replace the contacts and the plunger, or replace the starter. I change contacts in my shop 3-4 times a week. Quite a common failure. The clicking noise is the plunger hitting one contact, but not the other, due to wear.

It could be so many things wrong with this car has the electronics are very complicated something has silly has a fuse may have blown fuel pump may have packed up the list just goes on. So you would be best taking your car in to a garage and asking them to diagnose your problem this could save you a lot of money rather than just replacing parts that dont need replacing.
