I had a friend check the vtc solenoid on my 2005 G35. While in the process of checking to see if it "clicked" he dropped the little green connector and it make a little spark. Now the car won't start. Please help me to find out what I need to do to fix this. The p0011 code came up and that is why we were attempting to check the solenoid. Thanks

The cooling fan comes on when the key is switched to the on position. But the car will not start. When power is supplied to the connector the fan goes off.
Hello and Thank you for using JustAnswer.com
Well the first thing you need to do is get the car running.
I would start by checking the fusible link at the positive battery terminal and see if that is blown.
Here is it's location

Jay, the fusible link seems to be fine and we have checked the fuses. none seem to be blown. The car acts as though it wants to start. It just doesn't start up. When power is supplied directly from the battery to the green connector at the vtc solenoid the fan will go off but the car still does not crank.
oh, the fan is coming on when you turn the key on?
yes. but the car won't crank up.
If the fans are on, then car is in fail safe. This is normally due to a control unit failure. This will require more advanced diagnostics if the fans come on as soon as the key is turned on. I would start by checking fuses with a test light. Hopefully it's just a blown fuse.If you find it's a blown fuse and get the car started, let me know and I will continue to try to assist you.Other wise, control units would need to be checked and determined if bad and needs to be replaced. If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask. Thanks Jay!
Jay, the fuses all located by the battery have been light checked as well as those in the car. How do I go about checking the control units?
Check fuses in the IPDM also behind the battery.Other wise you need a Advanced Level Scanner to do CAN system checkes and Computer communication checks.Thanks Jay!
