Default Car Stars Sometimes Then Doesn't Start Sometimes. Why?

its one thing after another guys!

first blown engine, then transmission not engaging now this:

Yesterday car started fine all day! last night i went to turn it on and nothing, a single click! All electrical components work battery, alternator and starter reads 14.5V. And I have 3 batteries in my car (always have for car audio). I said fuck it ill deal with it in the morning. This morning i went to the car and it started right up! Im in chicago so i thought it may just be the cold. But i drove it for 45 mins stoped at the grocery store got out came back and it didnt start. just a single click! all batteries starter and altanator read 15.2V. I started to get upset and kept turning the key repeatedly then all of a sudden it started. Later on same thing happened again! Most would say that the battery has a bad connection but what are the odds that all three batteries have bad connections? everything is tight and read good voltage. I have no clue whats up any help?

this is what i get:

Your Cam Shaft Sensors are on their way out bro. Replace them with Nissan parts only and fix it yourself. Shouldn't take more than 45 mins or so.

Sounds like a starter on the way out. You'll get the click when the solenoid engages but the brushes in the starter don't make contact.

Personally, from what your saying, I'd lean towards the starter also...
