Once you have proved that the battery is in good condition, you should then check the starter solonoid to determine if it is working. It triggers the bendix spring in the starter shaft gear so that it in turn engages the flywheel and makes the engine turn over. You should hear a positive click ( you will need someone to engage the ignition key while you are listening under the hood). If the starter fails to engage even though you are certain the solonoid and Bendix spring are working, or if the starter engages but is "dragging", you could have a defective starter. More than likely, this is the case, and it is best to have it removed and replaced with a new or rebuilt starter from your parts resource. Again, before you give up, make sure your battery is not the culprit.
You know the starter is going bad when you have a dragging starter.
A car failing to start is an indicator that a starter is going bad. A bad starter can also cause a screeching sound when the key is turned.
One indication that the starter is going bad in your vehicle is if the vehicle won't start but the battery is full of life. When the starter is the reason, a very audible click will be heard.
It begins to sound bad: slow, crunchy, squeaky or some other bad noise.
Could possibly a solenoid on the starter going bad. Could possibly a solenoid on the starter going bad. Could possibly a solenoid on the starter going bad.

If you can jump start the engine your starter is good.
A bad starter might make a noise. The starter could also go bad with no noise or warning. However if the starter is making noise then there is a problem that could cause failure at any time
bad starter or starter solenoid.
Bad starter, or dead battery. :) Or you could have a bad wiring connection. Oh yes, and your starter switch (where you put your key) could be going bad.
Usually when hot? Could be a starter going bad
You know when the starter on your nissan maxima is going bad when your car doesnt start/ even when someone gives you a boost, all your fuses are fine, and none of them are NOT blown. You know its your starter and NOT alernator when you take another battery from a car thats been driven and their battery is ok and you put it into your car and the car will not start. If its the alternator, then the car would start in that case.
Yes, you can count on it.
Sounds like starter solenoid is going bad and needs replacing
Yep, starter is going bad.
if your starter is clicking when u turn it over- that's a good sign.
Because your starter is going bad. You will need a new starter soon!
If your starter is dead, you won't be going anywhere until it gets fixed,automatic or not.
Ignition switch going bad, corroded or loose battery cables, starter relay or starter going bad.
My suggestion is to make sure that you have a good connection between your starter and your battery. Is the starter even functioning? If not, it is probably a bad starter, a bad battery, a bad fusible link for the starter, a blown fuse, or just a bad connection.

The only 100% sure way to know is to remove the starter and had it bench tested at your local auto parts store.
If the starter is bad no. Check battery, starter and solenoid to be sure which is bad.
THE STARTER IS GOING BAD
