1999 Infinity G20: intermittent..start problem..engine wont turn over

Customer Question

My 1999 Infinity G20 has an intermittent failure to start problem. It gets power to lights, radio, etc. but engine won't turn over. Sometimes it starts. When it does start it runs fine. Any thoughts?

is there any clicking noise when it does not start..

the smaller battery should not be an issue....


the contacts in the starter and worn and not making contact all the time.....

usually you can operate the key several times and heat up the contacts and enguage the starter.......


i have installed several starters on g20s for this same issue....

hope this helps...
