A leaflette which came with my new srarter said that "a week or defective battery will damage the starter motor" and the battery should be load tested befroe starting the car. Is this really important or can I try it first.

turn headlight on - either with another person or facing a wall.
try starting. If lights dim it is a bad battery ot connection to the battery.
If not it is in ur starter ckt - relay, starter motor, starter solinoid.
are, you have a problem with the solenoid contacts inside the solenoid
that is mounted on the starter assembly. It is a very common problem
with a lot of the starters used on some Nissan products. Here is a
very good site that explains the repair procedure, or you can just have
the starter assembly replaced.
Check the following:
1. Broken, loose or disconnected wiring in the starting circuit.
2. Starter motor pinion jammed in flywheel ring gear
3. Starter Solenoid faulty
4. Starter motor faulty
5. Ignition switch faulty
6. Defective Battery fusible link (140 amp)
7. Automatic transaxle not completely engaged in park or clutch pedal not completely depressed.
8. Broken or stripped timing chain
9. Ignition components damp or damaged.
10. Broken, loose or disconnected wires at hte ignition coils or faulty coils.
11. Defective MAF sensor.
12. Worn, faulty or incorrectly gapped spark plugs.
First thing is to remove the negative wire from the battery. Raise the front of car/truck and use jackstands to support it. Block the rear tires. Remove electrical wires from srarter solinoid and mark them so you will know how to put them back in the right spot. Then remove the starter mounting bolts and remove the starter for the car/truck. installation is the reverse of removal. Hope this will help you.
Try this keep your headlights on and crank starter. Do lights go out?Dash too? If your battery is fully charged it is most likely your srarter motor ,if clicking then selonoid. A starter is a motor with brushes that wear out just like any motor.Try to see if a jump start cranks the motor,if so then your battery doesn't have enough cranking amps to start.Also clean battery posts cables make sure all are tight including grounds.Good luck.
