Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, My name is*****'m happy to help you. During our conversation, I may be presenting you with different things to try, and ask you some Questions to get a better understand of the issue so I can answer your question properly. So stick with me to the end, and I am sure we should be able to get this issue resolved for you!
Do you have a Volt Meter or Test light to do some checks? Also does the car have a after market remote start or alarm that you know of?
Single Click or Rapid clicking?
Thank you. A single click is a sign of a bad Starter. You will need to replace your starter to resolve your issue.
What happens is there are brushes in the starter that through time and age wear down. So when you try to start the car, since the brushes are worn, they won't make contact with the armature properly so it just clicks. Some times if you tap the starter with a hammer while holding the key in the crank position ( meaning you need another person to help you ) the starter will engage cause the vibration will allow the brushes to make contact.
So that is what a single click means. You will need a starter.
If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.
