Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello Im Chris and I will assist you. Did tis problem occur before the battery was put in too? is it the reason for battery change?
It sounds to me like you have a bad starter. I can help you diagnose that if you have a test light and someone to crank the car for you.
Are the battery terminals on good?
do you have a test light?
remove it and see what happens.
scrape your battery posts and terminals so they make good contact.
are you going to do it now?
thats not me i dont request that its the site
If it was me my name would be under it.
Ok you will need a test light and someone to crank the car
If you dont have a test light you can grab something to hit the starter with while its being cranked
Exactly what im saying. Hit it while some one cranks on the side not in back see if it turns over.
the starter clicks once. Thats why im not even thinking that.
Like I said if you have a test light its an easy diagnosis if we have power and signal to starter.
No question is ever dumb. Engine size?
Ok that one is a bad one its actually under your intake
so much for hitting it.
but we can check for power in other ways
Did you try to start it in neutral?
Im pulling up the diagram
1 click right?
not constant clicking?
ok. it has to be a bad connection or a bad starter. The click showes us your key is sending signal to the starter.
its the starter that is clicking
I dont think you would be gambling.
I think its the problem are you up to the task?
Let me look for something for you
For me its not a biggie takes about 1.5 hours.
but that is using mostly air tools.
Im sure you will be good. Ive actually pulled in cars to change oil and have had things like this happen. Good luck telling the customer.lol
The guy in the video is a drama queen.
Just be careful tightening intake back up its only plastic.
so you wil do it tomorrow?
very good. give me a time and ill be on for you
make it after 12 though because i will be at the airport
oh one more thing if you try to bench test your starer it may work because it has no resistance. Dont take that as it being good.
I will leave this open until your car is starting. I dont care how long lol.
when you write me here i get it on email and i can come on.
ide like to give you my number but that would be against policy here.
All you have to do is log on and go to your questions.
I hear ya!
Ok. What can i say?
LOL that was one of the first questions I asked!
actually im glad you dont have to pay to get it done im laughing with you not at you!!!!!!
you see the fear of the starter replacement technique worked lol
No problem. Either way I like to help people keep away from mechanics. You saved a bundle.
