My 1987 Nissan Pickup won't start. I had the started checked and it showed it was good. I brougt the battery to the shop and had it checked it was a little low but they charged it and it was good. I went ahead and replaced the starter anyway. The truck still won't start and radio and lights work fine. You can her the starter click when you turn the key, but thats all. I do not know what else I could do.

Check all the connections closely for corrosion and tightness.

Barring that, rap on the starter motor with a hammer. Now try cranking it. If it starts, the motor is defective. Pitch it and install a Nissan rebuilt one...better off, better quality.

Ya, I got that. However:

If the part didn't come in a Nissan box (remanufactured by Nissan), you may have a defective starter. Parts store starters vary in quality, some are crap out of the box. I have seen it time and time again.

Just because it's "new", doesn't mean it's GOOD.
