Long time lurker, first time poster here. I am really hoping someone can help shed some light on my current hair pulling won't start problem. Read on for details.
Car is a 2006 Infiniti M35. Over the past 3-4 month I have had an intermittent problem where the car won't start. It started as a problem where the car would not recognize the key fob and thus, when I would press that start button nothing would happen. This would happen every now and again, then go back to normal. The battery appeared to have a charge as all the peripherals seemed to be working as normal, car just wouldn't start. Took it to the dealer a few times, they had a difficult time locating the problem as the non-starting was intermittent. They did replace some of the wiring that connects to the battery. I've replaced the key fob batteries and the car battery. I was looking into the steering lock immobilizer control box as the problem, but I am not fully convinced this is causing the problem.
It seems that I have narrowed it down to the problem happening after it rains. Yesterday here in Baltimore it rained/snowed all day and night. When I went to start the car in the morning, nothing happened, same problem. Likely, later today it will start up again fine.
Does anyone have an idea as to what this problem could be? It is thoroughly frustrating that I can't figure out what is causing this issue. I am so fed up that I am thinking about just getting rid of the car. I obviously don't want to do this because I like the car and it is functioning perfectly besides this starting issue.
Thanks for any help and insight!
