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?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: CHRIS ZAPANTIS,

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.

everything was working just fine before the battery swap. This is just confusing to me. Have changed a few batteries before, not a very complex process! i just don't know where to go from here.
Nissan Mechanic: CHRIS ZAPANTIS,

Are the battery terminals on good?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: CHRIS ZAPANTIS,

do you have a test light?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
short of hammering them down to be extra sure, yes they are on tight. I did apply this corrosion resistant stuff that oriely's gave me, please don't tell me that could be the problem.
Nissan Mechanic: CHRIS ZAPANTIS,
 replied 1 year ago

remove it and see what happens.

Nissan Mechanic: CHRIS ZAPANTIS,

Ok you will need a test light and someone to crank the car

Nissan Mechanic: CHRIS ZAPANTIS,

If you dont have a test light you can grab something to hit the starter with while its being cranked

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
What do you mean by hitting the starter??
Nissan Mechanic: CHRIS ZAPANTIS,
 replied 1 year ago

Exactly what im saying. Hit it while some one cranks on the side not in back see if it turns over.

Like I said if you have a test light its an easy diagnosis if we have power and signal to starter.
