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!

could be starter or any number of wires best bet from my expirence is auto electician i had this fault on a customers car a year or so back and spent days on it then gave up and took it to my electrician who sorted it in no time for not a lot of cash
Is the fusible link at the positive battery cable not burnt and melted?To check positive battery from battery to starter,get a meter and test positive end at starter and ground other end,should get a reading of 12.6 or near to be good.
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
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
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.
ok disconect the old one complety from the battery FIRST then the starter motor, on your new positve put you conectors on then connect to the starter motor FIRST then to you battery make sure there all tight then your ready to go
