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.
