Question about 1987 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

87 Pathfinder won't start

We have put in a new starter and positive battery cable. The battery is new, all lights, power windows etc. work, but the only way to start the PF is to give it a roll and pop the clutch. What's the next thing to check? Help!

    Thanks for ALL the help...NOT. Even the supposed expert who was supposed to respond in "a day or 2" never responded. What a waste of time. Looks to me like a site that just wants you to PAY for the advice. Thanks for NOTHING. We got it taken care of.

    We had put in a new ignition switch when we first got the truck, cuz the guy we bought it from didn't have the keys. Great thought though! Turns out that it had to do with the starter interrupt on the alarm system. Food for thought if anyone else goes through this....

I have a 93 pathfinder SE 4X4 automatic transmission that had full power, new starter and battery. Sometimes it will start and sometimes not. By passed starter relay by adding push button start and it started 6-8 times then nothing. I finally figured out that it was the neutral safety or inhibitor switch on the 4 wheel drive shifter. Just an idea..good luck

AAA said battery was dead and starter was bad, it would only click once until the battery was completly dead. Put a new battery in and had interior lights, etc. Tried to turn it over, and only one click...


iwould check positive and negative power at battery end and at starter and engine block end
also check power at any distribution block (points) for corrosion or partially brocken connection
or loose at mounting points

Try the ignition switch. Or, if it has an alarm, it couold be the starter interrupt (that's what it was on ours). The starter interrupt malfunctioned, so we just disconnected the alarm system.

I had a 1994 pathfinder with the same problem. Direct wire the load pin on the starter solenoid to the positive terminal on the battery with a push-button switch between and mount it on the dash of the car. You will also need to disconnect the existing wire on the load pin of the solenoid and tape it up. This will allow you to engage the starter without the key using the push button, however, you will still need to crank the key to the start position while turning the motor over to give you fuel pressure.

Maybe a temporary solution for you but its worked on my pathfinder for more than 2 years.
