Infiniti Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. Sorry you have waited so long for a reply. Without hearing the car, I can not say for certain what is happening but based on your description, the whining sound is most likely the sound of the starter spinning but not engaging with the flex plate to turn the engine over. Have you been able to crank the engine at all after installing the new starter? Or did you hear a whining the first time you attempted to start the engine with the new starter?
Ok. can you tell if the whining is coming from the starter? possibly by having someone else turn the key while you listen? I would bet that your starter was a bad rebuild. It sounds like it is not engaging with the flex plate.
unless what your hearing is more of a grinding sound, in which case the starter is probably not fully engaging with flex plate. only partially.
Sounds good. let me know what you find. If the starter is whining then I would remove it and exchange it with another one. Remember, you can always follow up on here free of any charges after clicking accept.
