Customer Question
I have a 2003...

I have a 2003 frontier. The engine was running then shut down. Went to start it up and the starter would click like it was a dead battery. Tested battery had a bad cell. Replaced battery same issue so I replaced the starter. Still the same problem. The motor will turn bout a quarter turn then it will click as if the battery is dead. Tried jumping off same thing.Battery reads 12.4 volts

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?

Yes to both

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Frontier yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I have replaced the battery and the starter. Motor was running fine then it stalled. The truck is an automatic truck was in park.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
