    As mentioned , make sure the battery is FULLY charged. If you're doing this yourself , first pull the starter and bench-test it. If the solenoid is able to be dis-assembled then, if needed you can check and clean or replace the contacts in it(if they are available-possibly from nissan or infiti.
