Question about 1994 Nissan Pathfinder
The starter on my '94 Pathfinder suddenly developed a problem, in that, once it is hot the solenoid only clicks. wait until it cools, 1 hr +, & then starts. Changed to new rebuilt starter, new positive wire, checked ignition switch-slightly loose, replaced battery and now only clicks when key is turned to start position. Retighened everything. Any idea?
I'm having the same problem. The dealership keeps telling me it's the starter. I've replaced starter and still have the same problem. I have had all the wiring and new key swith put in and still have the same problem. I guess were in the same boat!!!

? - dismantle solenoid and replace copper contact plates and plunger ring (readily available as an inexpensive overhaul kit). Check out the manufacturer name of the starter motor (most probably DENSO) and have the replacement parts ready before continuing (Autozone?). Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery. Disconnect the wires and cables to the starter motor/ solenoid assembly. Remove the two motor mounting bolts and remove the motor from the car. Remove the bolts holding the end cover from the solenoid. Undo the mount bolts holding the 'L' shaped copper contact plates Take special note of the fitting order of washers etc. Remove the plunger. Reverse the order of the steps above but substituting the parts provided in the 'service kit'. By all means clean the interior but DO NOT lubricate, it only glues dirt to everything. Wire brush any electrical unions prior to reconnecting cables etc. Job should take about 20 minutes to remove, 20 minutes to renew and 20 minutes to reinstall
