2005 G35 won't crank

Postby Headnsouth » Sun Sep 13, 2020 10:58 am

2005 G35 150K miles automatic
Car has been great always reliable until now. Try to start and all I get is a electrical click under the engine cover. No click from the starter. Tried jumper cables NG same thing. No codes. Just ran into the store and came back out and bam no crank. I'm thinking starter relay or the starter. Any body had this issue? What can I check?

Battery, Battery, Battery!

A dead cell will cause your problem.

Why don't you test or replace your battery?

Assuming your battery cables are good, tight, with no corrosion your next step with a good fully charged battery would be to follow the troubleshooting steps in the FSM.
Anything get wet? Possible defective IPDM or the starter itself?

Cables are good and tight no corrosion. Hot and dry here in Ga. Thanks for the leads and link I'll check them out.
