Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
Was it a Rapid clicking noise the car made when you tried to start it?
Thank you. Rapid clicking is a sign of a weak battery. I would jump start the car and that should allow it to start up properly. Then I would have the battery checked. If it's the original battery since it's 4 almost 5 years old, you may want to look into replacing the battery.
The lights and electrical is most likely acting like that cause of low battery voltage. Do you have someone to help you jump start the car?
The car does not start correct?
Is this a clicking noise inside the cabin of the vehicle?
Ok.. Disconnect the negative battery cable for 15 mins. Then reconnect it. Then you will need to attempt to Jump start the car.
I understand you feel it's not a battery issue, but everything you are describing sounds like it. The starter is the biggest draw on the electrical system and I have seen the electrical system do some whacky things when the voltage gets low on the battery.
Do you thing you can do that for me and humor me and try this?
I will be online all night so give that a try and let me know how you make out.
Also when you do get the jumper cables on the car, leave the car running and hooked up to your car for around 10 to 15 mins before attempting to start your car. This way their charging system can build a charge up on yours.
Unless you have a battery charger you can hook up to your car to charge up the battery so you can try.
Let me know..
Did you disconnect the negative battery cable for 15 mins?
