2006 Nissan Altima won’t start

why my 2006 nissan altima 3.5 liter wont start , installed new ground and hot connection on the battery. still not starting , Some times when turning the key I get one click not 2 . Maybe grounding point further down on the engine block .

Do you know if your battery is as good as it should be . Have you tried using a battery pack to jump start ? I am not a fan of vehicle to vehicle jumping and the roadside service near me only charges 25.00 to come out with a battery pack .

If the click you are hearing is coming from the starter solenoid then that would mean the contacts inside it are worn out. You can either replace the contacts or the starter.
