You may need to replace the ignition switch on the column, under the dash. There may be a bad contact in the switch.

IF you are saying that the starter motor is sluggish to turn over as if the batter is flat or low (6cylinder) then the problem is overheating of the starter. There is a shield that is available from ford to keep air flow around the starter. I found the answer to be a high performance starter (used for worked motors) as it is not affected by the heat.

When you say it won't start, do you mean it cranks but won't fire, or it just won't crank? If it just won't crank, you could be having an issue with the starter relay. The often become intermittent before failure. Many owners do not know there is a starter relay because it was added as a recall item i order to protect the iginition switch from burnout. The starter relay is located in the very front of the engine compartment, just to the left of the battery, on the back side of the radiator crossmember.

I have nissan sentra 1992gxe.i turn on the ignation but it doesn't start doesn't even crank.is it starter or fuse or something else.


It sounds like the starter. Take a rubber mallet or a small hammer and beat the starter a few times not really hard like it owes you money, but hit it good. If the car starts after this your starter is stuck and needs to be replaced. Now this might not work, the starter can be so bad that nothing like this will help. Take it off go to your local parts store and they can test it for you. There should not be a fuse anywhere on the starter wire. O yeah make sure the battery is good and charged up. A low battery will do this too.

1st check the main cable to the starter make sure it is clean and tight, disconnect battery first, after that there should be a small wire going to the starter jump that small connector to the main battery cable on the starter (IGNITION OFF) if it cranks you have a wiring or ignition switch problem if not Starter time just make sure you get a very good quality starter some cheap and even lifetime starters are so poorly made that even after you replace them you still have a problem only a bad noise coming from the new starter you just put in.

Intermittent starter problem, sometimes turns, sometimes not. changed battery, tested bad, starter worked twice, stopped turning. changed starter, still wont turn.


Many European cars have relays that trigger the starter,maybe yours is bad? New battery and new starter? Need to check battery connections to vehicle especially ground wire to engine block. Starter face and flywheel housing have to be clean for good ground connection.
When it won't start do you try key numerous times? Sometimes (rarely) bad keyswitch.
