Car Batteries
Nissan Altima

On a 1994 Nissan Altima if the battery is good and all of the electrical items work why when you turn the key to start would it just click?

a few electrical self-help tests you can run to isolate the starting problem are: turn on the headlight & then try to start the car. if the hedlights dim then you are getting a good strong connection to the starter. If the clicking sound occurs then its a weak battery. If no headlight dimming, then check all the connectors from the battery to the starter.

this happens to me all the time... this works everytime: -turn the key forward 1 click but dont try to turn it on -put the parking break on -put the car in the gear labeled "1" -put the car back into park -take the parking break off -start the car

never fails-maybe its just my car but i found that out when the 2nd day i bought it it didnt start...and i just messed around with it like that until i figured out how to fix the problem.

I had the same problem on my 1995 Altima. The starter was the problem. Had to be replaced.

battery is charged ,but still have to jump start it

(mAh) is the capacity. Click the link. click repair on the right, and follow the directions. Then click engine electrical, then ignition system.

Look for a loose or corroded positive battery cable at the battery post - or a loose/corroded battery terminal on the positive cable.

That's usually a low battery or a dirty battery terminal. Check the terminal first, see if it's corroded or loose. Next, understand that the battery is simply an electrical storage device. The battery can be bad or the alternator can fail and the battery will not have enough stored electrical energy. Before just replacing a battery, always check the charging system to make sure it's working properly before assuming that a battery has failed.

You click on the remote of the TV and the battery will appear in your screen then you click your backpack click use battery near the remote car .

You most likely have a dead battery, or if the battery is fully charged maybe the electrical portion of the ignition switch could be faulty.

My understanding is that you are hearing the starter "click" but it does not engage. If that is correct your answer is: Typically either 1. the battery isn't fully charged (either a problem with the charging system, something is running the battery down or the alternator isn't charging properly) 2. a poor electrical connection somewhere between the starter and the battery or 3. a problem with the starter or solenoid.

The battery does not have sufficient voltage to start the car when it's cold. Have the battery checked out. If it still goes click click after running the car for a while, have the alternator checked also. A bad battery will not hold a charge and a bad alternator will not recharge the battery, (That is the reason to have the battery checked first). Make sure the connections at the battery are clean and tight.

solenoids are what clicks, yes it will click if the battery is low.

Maybe you have a problem in your main wiring harness. No fun.. Could also be an electrical sensor.

A sing l e click is usually a failed starter. A repeated fast click is either a weak battery or a dirty battery cable.

Check battery and battery conections first

If you know the battery and connections at the battery are good then it is more than likely a defective starter.

when your battery is disconnected, or dies, it unsets the automatic roll up feature. You have to push the down button and hold it down for a few seconds when it goes down. You should hear a click and that will reengage the automatic feature. On some models you have to also manually roll it up and hold the up button, but I don't think on yours. wilhouse

I assume it is not starting? You turn the key and it goes click click click. You have a dead battery.

if it just goes click click click and not start then you will require a new battery or a charge if you left the lights on...

If by "fast click" you mean a series of rapid clicks, that is an indication of either a flat (low) battery or loose battery cable(s).

try the electrical coil

Typically, a Click-click-click noise when attempting to start a vehicle is the sure sign of either a dead battery or a loose battery connection. Try tightening the battery terminal connections. If this doesn't help, you may need a new battery. A jump start will avoid a towing expense.

A fast rapid click is an indiction of a weak battery. A single click is an indication of a failed starter.
