1996 Maxima GLE? w/v6, all stock. Have an intermitten problem with the car not starting. when the ignition is turned on, everything seems the work and I can hear a relay below the dash clicking when I try to start, but the starter doesn't turn over. It has a new battery and the last time it wouldn't start, I took it to the dealer. They replaced the starter (with one I supplied from BapGeon) and everything seemed to be good. now (about 4-5 weeks later) I have started having the same problem. Works great most of the time, but occasionally won't crank. I went to the dealer to try to buy a new starter relay, but they told me it doesn't have one??? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Dont go to that shop...

Verify charge voltage.

Reman starter/alt fail all too often:( ... Check the cablings, verify that the starter solenoid gets juice as problem is on (needs some kind of tester). If voltage is present and main cables ok, starter solenoid and/or brushes fail. I guess it has some warranty?
