Nissan Armada Starter issues?

Asked by Jun 19, 2015 at 02:09 PM about the 2004 Nissan Armada SE 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On occasion, I go to turn my Armada on and it all lights, radio, instruments, etc come on, but when I turn the key over, I just get a click, and nothing else.  Usually the second time it fires right up.  But the other night I must've turned the key 20 times before it started.  Is this the starter?  I have corroded battery terminals so I cleaned them and haven't had any more problems.  This happened a week ago.  This has been happening for over a year, but only once or twice a month.  The Armada has 260k miles on it.

SOUNDS LIKE A WEAK STARTER SOLENOID..A BACKYARD TEST IS TURN ON THE HEAD LIGHTS AND TRY TO START..IF LIGHTS GO DIM BATTERY FAILING UNDER A LOAD.. THEN SOLENOID THAN STARTED AMP DRAW.

Make sure wires going to starter solenoid are nice and tight and starter bolts also.

We are having the EXACT SAME issue with our 08 QX56. Did you ever get it resolved?
