if mechanical problem, your ring gear on the flywheel is probably jacked, not allowing the pinion gear on the starter to pop out and engage and spin it
if electrical problem, your starter relay is not doing its job sending signal to the starter solenoid. check the little single-wire spade plug that goes to the solenoid first.

Bite the bullet, goto nissan and get a starter. Barring that, get your cash back, and at least try a different brand. I would have gotten my money back the second time...

New gp... take this existing starter out and test it on a battery. How you do dat you ask? Get some electical wire..wrap around starter terminal and signal switch terminal. Place the starter on the neg post of battery on the ground (put a foot on it so that it doesn't move), then contact the other end of the wire to the positive side of the batt. see if the pinion gear pops out and starts spinning.. then enjoy the amount of heat that builds up in the wire..

Or you could just take it to pep boys or napa. They usually have the ability to test it.

Pep boys starters have a lifetime warranty. If one goes out, pull it out and bring it back to pep boys. Nissan starters are much better quality.
