It should be underneath your car in between the firewall and the engine. Now you don't want to supply direct power to your starter because you'll end up frying it. However to just start the car once you've located the starter, get a long screwdriver with a plastic handle and connect the two wires with the screwdriver.

As for a long term fix, without investing the money to replace the necessary parts. You will need to attach a wire that can handle 12v to both wires on your starter separately. Then connect the other ends of both wires to a switch that can handle 12v, and mount that in your car somewhere. Then whenever you need to start your car just flip the switch on until the car starts then once it is started flip it back off.
I know this sounds like a lot but it is very doable with about $5 and a little bit of time.

I put a new ignition switch on my 96 sentra. I cant get it to unlock what am i doing wrong?


A new ignition switch will also need a new key to compliment it. Your old key will not work with the new switch that's probably why the steering won't unlock.

Where can i locate the starter


Hi,
Remove the air intake hose from the air cleaner assembly. Remove the clamp and then pull the hose straight off the assembly. Remove the wing nut securing the air cleaner by turning it counterclockwise by hand. Remove the air cleaner.


You will Locate the starter motor directly below the air cleaner assembly. Disconnect the wiring connection on the starter motor. The plug should pull straight out from the connection. Remove the nut securing the starter wire using 13-millimeter socket and ratchet and remove the wire.

What do i need to do to replace a starter in my 97 nissan sentra?


first unhook the battery, remove the air cleaner box and ducting to the throttle body, you will see the 2 bolts for the top. you will then need to go under the vehicle(make sure the vehicle is properly supported), and you will see the bracket between the engine block and the intake manifold, remove it.the starter wire does not get removed from the starter, it has a connector about 4-5 inches away. disconnect it there. disconnect the battery cable from the starter, remove the last bolt and it will come right out. all in all it takes about 30 minutes. most places will charge a "core charge" on a product like this. dont be suprised, however when you return the old starter you will get your money back. let me know if you need further assistance.

I have a 1988 Nissan Sentra. When I turn the key


Your problem is definately not a relay. It sounds as if the starter contact in your ignition switch is bad. The solution is to replace the ignition switch.
