    If you can turn the engine by hand, chances are that your starter has failed

Providing the cable ends are clean and tight, either the battery is no good, or the starter is no good. I would try switching batteries first, (borrow one) and if it makes no difference, change the starter.

97 Nissan Altima won't Start. It only clicks once when you turn the key. It has a manual transmission and won't even push start. Any idea's?

One click and no start? Sounds like a starter issue. Make sure that your battery is fully charged before you do anything. If it is charged, make sure all of your battery cables are clean and tight all the way down to the starter. You can also have you battery and starter tested at almost any auto parts store. The transmission is a totally different issue.

1989 nissan pickup 4 cylinder when i turn the key to crank the engine i hear a click sound at the starter what could the click sound be?

could be battery . It needs a huge amount of charge to turn over the starter motor. It may work the headlights but be unable to turn the starter motor.
Suggest get battery tested at a battery seller to see if battery is really ok .
The click is most likely the solenoid on the starter motor clicking on.
You might be able to get someone to run jumper leads
Note +ve to + ve and negative to negative !
from their car while the engine is running and their car is not moving !
Wait 10 minutes
Then try to crank over your car engine .

I jump started a 4wd vehicle a month ago from my car and it took about 10 minutes to get enough charge in it to crank over the engine !

My 2005 Nissan Altima is making a rapid clicking sound when trying to start it & fails to start. Is it the starter or what?

Sounds like a dead/low battery. Give the car a boost to see if it starts. The life expectancy of an automotive battery is 5yrs. How old is yours? If newer, have the charging system tested if vehicle stgarts with a boost

Replace fuel pump 2008 nissan altima

iv never known a fuel pump to make lots of clicks when starting. sounds to me like the clicking could be the starter motor either faulty or not having enough power, or a power shortage causing relays to click. check your battery connections if all looks good either charge the battery or try jump leads linked to a good battery.

1996 nissan turns over but won't start

1. Check battery if charged, by starting, if you hear clicking sound, battery power not enough to start.
2. Check battery terminal and starter terminal nuts and tighten.
3. Check contact of battery and terminal lugs by cleaning it and removed impurities.
4. If starting cannot proceed to run the engine, check fuel and filter.

1996 Nissan Maxima Started car and pulled the

i would suggest you contact a dealer and tell them what happened they may tell you to bring it in and that may be a good idea when it comes to these computerized vehicles it's not always a good idea to disconnect the positive cable to check to see if the alternator is faulty it may have caused another problem doing so. The best way to check for a charge is with a machine that detects the charging system is operational
