I have a 05 Nissan Titan SE which I'm having starting up

Customer Question

I have a 05 Nissan Titan SE which I'm having starting up issues. I have replace the following in the past month; starter, battery, battery terminal and have check the alternator which is good and also all fuses I have checked. MY truck will start up every morning but if a make a stop and try to start the truck up again nothing just a clicking sound but all my dash lights up. I wait about 5 to 10 min and try to start my truck it will start up like nothing was wrong. This is been happing all this week and don't know what can be wrong. Does anyone know what can be going wrong?
Thank you
Rafael

Hi, my name is ***** ***** is usually caused by a bad spot in the armature of the starter, you say the starter is new, was it a rebuilt or remanned starter?

New purchased it at AutoZone
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 8 months ago.

we have seen the starters at Autozone bad, right out of the box, they are remanned starters and its common, do you have a test light or volt meter? it is easy to check?

Its weird its not doing it now. I may have to drive a little longer but need to head to work. What are you wanting me to do if it does die?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
wont start
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 8 months ago.

there are 2 wires at the starter, one large one and one small wire, you need to check for power at the SMALL wire, while cranking, if it has power but the starter does not turn over, then it has to be a defective starter, and we see this alot from autozone,Tim

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I will do that and get back with you.
Thanks

Anytime my friend,Tim
