2006 FX-35 Cranks but No Start

Postby djpces » Thu May 19, 2011 1:30 pm

On 2 occassions my '06 FX-35 (w/keyless) cranked like it wasn't getting gas but would not start. All other keyless functions worked. After a while on the 1st time, it started. I brought it to the dealer and they checked it out throughly and said they couldn't find anything wrong. They said the diagnostic code indicated something like "failure to recognize key". They also indicated that this would disable the fuel pump. They couldn't explain why all the other keyless functions worked. Disabling the fuel pump made sense since the engine cranked fine but acted like it wasn't getting fuel. After about 5-10 minutes, something must have reset because it started fine. Last week, 1 yr later, I had the same problem but was out of town. Tried to get help from the dealer but they never returned my call. After about 10 minutes, the car started and has started fine ever since. I'm waiting for the dealer service rep to call and discuss as this problem should be diagnoseable. However, I'm trying this forum for help also. Is anyone familiar with the exact link between the fuel pump and the keyless feature? Does it automatically reset in ? minutes when activated? Could it be a computer logic problem? Can I try something different than waiting 10 minutes to get it started immediately?

Welcome to NICO! :wavey:

Please tell me because I've forgotten, does the 2006 Infiniti FX35 have a key fob holster near the driver's steering column? If so, try placing your key fob into the holster next time this issue occurs. It sounds to me like there is some communication error between your key fob and the vehicle's receiver and placing the fob into the holster should solve this issue by allowing your FX35 to communicate directly (instead of wirelessly) with the fob.

No holster. It has the ignition switch which will accommodate the sleeve key to use when the key fob battery is dead, etc.. But the I tried the sleeve key also with the same no start result. Even with the key fob in my pocket, the ignition switch engages, the dash lights up, the ratio comes on, the power windows/sunroof work, but, the engine won't start as it apparently is not getting fuel. It is still working fine now after it apparently rest, but, I'm concerned about the next time. This event has occurred twice in the last year.

I have the same year car and I've started having the same problem. I also would like to know why this is happening and what I can do to fix it. Until reading this, I was gonna replace the fuel pump. Now I don't know what to do. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a 2006 FX45 and have been having the same problems. It happens very sporadically. I can't seem to figure out any trands. The engine cranks, the dash is on (radio, windows, etc work fine), but no start. Seems like the fuel pump is shut off... Wait 10 minutes and it starts without any problems. I tried playing around with the keyfob. Entering exiting the vehicle. etc. but not really sure if its the 10 minute wait of anything i've done to make it start again. Anyone has figured this out yet?

This happened twice over my almost 7 years of ownership on my 06 FX35. Both of the times were due to weak battery. Replace the battery and see if it'll fix the problem :biggrin:
