Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you. I will need to ask you questions to get a better picture so I can better help you. Where do you hear the clicking come from ? The starter itself or the starter relay? turn the dome lamp on and try to start and when it just clicks does the light stay bright or go dim/
that could be a sticking starter relay. electrical problems are sometimes a trial and error thing if they are intermittent. In your case I would replace the relay first it's cheaper and easier to do. I'll see if I can find some info for you.

I know but still same issue when it clicks can you put you hand on the relay in pic #1 then you can swap one that's the same to test it far easier to do then going to the starter rt now. unless you have a starter draw tester
The relay is in the IPDM box which is in the engine compartment passenger side rear. Here's 2 pics of the IPDM and the relay. Hope this helps
Is there not a fuse block in the engine compartment one should have a relay marked on the cover.
do you have an owners manual?
/IF you haven't had it done yet check the ECM relay in the IPDM
this may help locate it.
well I.m stumped as you can see my info shows one ? I will have to opt out so another expert may help you better I wish you all the best and hope you solve your problem.
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
If you are getting a single click, that is due to a starter issue. It could be intermittent, but Single Clicks is a bad starter. So you are going to want to make arrangements to replace the starter to resolve your issue. The starter is located under the intake manifold and is around 3 hours labor to replace.
Do you have any more questions on this?
The relays never go. They are built into the IPDM. That is a control unit under the hood. 99.9% of the time, single click is the solenoid on the starter clicking, but the armature of the starter does not engage.
Rapid clicking is a weak battery. A single click is a starter.
I highly doubt the issue is the IPDM. But if it's not the starter, then it would be either the IPDM or a wiring issue. The way you would verify is measuring voltage out of the IPDM when the key is in the Crank Position.
Do you have a volt meter? How handy are you?
