My friends 1996 3.0 v6 Nissan Maxima 125000 miles with a standard trans will sometimes engage the starter and sometimes not.
We have cleaned the battery connections and put in a new one. We checked the wires on the starter relay. The ground connection coming from the clutch switch works every time, as does the power connection from the ignitioin switch. The large gauge positive wire going to the relay does not get power when it won't start. When it does power goes to the relay and to the other large gauge wire which connects to the starter solenoid.
Is there another relay that controls battery power to the large gauge wire connected to the starter relay or does he need a new ignition switch?
This really has me stumped. Thanx for any help you can give.
