Hello and Thank you for using JustAnswer.com
If the interior lights are flickering and your getting a fast clicking sound, double check your jumper cable connections. It sounds like a weak battery, and you may not have a good connection on the cables
Already checked connection. Also disconnected cables to reset any code issues. Had car hooked to my Tundra for 45 minutes. No clicking and the interior lights fast flash as if there is a code issue.
Brake lights also flash quickly
That all sounds like a weak battery
I know you have been trying to jump it.
All of that are signs of that.
Why would my battery not start it?
The connection is good.
Could have a bad cell
That may also keep it from being able to be jumped as well
When ever the lights flicker, and you get that fast clicking, it's the battery.
It's not even clicking while I'm revving my motor. Everything indicates bad battery except lights flashing.
The lights are flashing as if there is some code going off.
Do you have remote start in the car or something?
The head lights are not flashing are they? the parking lights are flashing?
Interior lights and brake lights No headlights.
That is a sign of some sort of after market alarm.
Are you the original owner?
It would make sense that the parking lights would be flashing and they are not.
She is the original owner.
No remote start nor after market alarm.
There is no other way for those lights to really be flashing.
Infiniti doesn't use codes in this manner?
the IPDM controls exterior lighting ( Brake lights ) and the BCM controls interior lighting. The only way I can see those lights flashing on and off is if there is some sort of after market alarm.
no, it won't flash the lights like your describing to tell you there is a code
How many miles on the car?
ok 42250 miles
Your bumper to bumper warranty may still be good.
If you would like to have the dealer check it for you.
Most after market alarms if disabled, if the battery goes dead can activate it, which is what I am thinking. It may have had something installed, and you never knew it
she says no alarm was ever added
There is no other way for the brake lights to flash. If they flicker when trying to start, then that is a battery issue. But if they are flashing on and off, the factory wiring and alarm system can not do that.
they were rapidly blinking when no one was even in the car that flickering has now stopped and the interior lights and head light came on bright but still no turn over
If you press the start button and not step on the brake does all the steering lock release and all the warning lights come on in the dash?
which fuse controls the starter and is it in the engine bay or interior
None of the dash warning lights come on if you press the start button to the ON position?
Try taking the whole remote and insert it in the fob slot to the left of the steering wheel by where your left knee would be, and then try
Also let me know if the steering wheel is locked and releasess
I am starting to think maybe the main fusible link popped. That is why your not getting any power to the dash that would indicate it to start.
did that did not release
how do we check that fuse
It's on the positive battery terminal. See image of it's location. You will need a flash light to check it, or pop the clear cover off to get a better look at it.
The link appears broken. Will it be connected like a regular fuse?
You're earning your $$$
That would explain it all. You need to replace that main fusible link.
