probably. check your starter cable connection. Also, could be starter relay fuse, ignition switch. If you replaced the starter you could have the wires crossed.

My 96 Maxima did the same thing last month, and it turned out the be the starter. One way to tell is if you tap the starter and the engine turns over, you know you need a new starter.
