Starter issue Sign In

2001 Infiniti qx4 v 6 3.5
So car would start only sometime s or just click. If I tapped starter it would usually work. It’s got 230000 miles. So I replaced starter and nothing not even clicking like it’s trying. So I turned key on and tried screwdriver bypass on screws on starter and the starter was spinning but no start

Sounds like you messed up the install somewhere, wires wrong, poor connection, missing wires, etc

Basics haven't changed in eons with that description. Is this a cloned one or rebuilt? Testing those before install I do all the time. Hope you kept old one even if a core charge wait till replacements prove they are the issue.
As Hammer said wires if no sound at all then just a "hmmmm" I think you mean? If so it isn't throwing the drive gear out or so far off somehow it's totally not right. Take it out and test off car with jumper cables and smaller alligator clip for trigger wire but watch out they want to jump across a floor or workbench :-)
