Asked by May 27, 2016 at 01:20 PM about the 1988 Nissan 300ZX 2 Dr Turbo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Installed new starter, and battery. Starter isn't
engaging... Pulled one link fuse today and will
replace it later tonight (casing to wire was stiff,
crumbling and old). Not sure if the link fuse to the
starter but will change replace it anyway. From the
battery to the starter what issues could arise that
would cause my starter to not engaged when key
is turned? Also I drove this car one time and it
started right up.

Your ignition switch or the coil pack. Check em for spark and pull from a salvage yard for test/replacement parts if possible! Best of luck!

did you jump the hot side of the starter to see if it turns over?

Check out the starter relay, a bad one could be reason the starter is not engaging.
