Customer Question

Last night when my wife tried starting the 2007 Nissan minivanvan
the passenger side air bag area made a clicking noise and the passenger side rear window also made an unusual sound. but the car finally started.
This morning the car wouldn't start at all but the same sounds are being made. I really don't think it's the battery.
Any thoughts?

Hi there,

Does the engine crank and not start?
Are you hearing these noises when you turn the key on?
Why don't you think it's the battery?

The engine does not crank at all.
Yes I'm only hearing the noise only when I turn the key on.
Lights in the van work and it happened so suddenly. Could it be battery???
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The battery went dead a few years ago and those sounds never happened.

It could be the battery.
Low voltage can work the lights and not the starter. I am not 100% sure it is the battery, but it is where I would start with it. And checking the connections on the battery. Many times when the battery is low odd electrical issues start to happen. I think I would start with checking the battery terminals and make sure they are clean and tight, i would then follow that up with a jump start. Maybe leave the donor car on it for about 15 minutes, then see if the engine will crank at least. This way we can eliminate the battery as one possible issue.

Please try this and let me know.

Okay I'll try that tonight when I get home.
Thanks!

You're very welcome, I just want to eliminate it as a possibility if we can :)
