I have an 01 infiniti i30 sith starting problems. No start

Customer Question

I have an 01 infiniti i30 sith starting problems. No start no crack. We have replaced starter, altinator, battery, (-) battery terminal. I have a starter silenoid on the way. Ok so, we was able to start car by sticking a rod between 2 bolts on silenoid for awhile but it stopped, was able to jump start with another vehicle for awhile but that stopped working, now we can put rid in silenoid again. I'm so lost
JA: When you turn the key, do you get a single loud click, or a series of rapid ones?
Customer: Just one click each time we try
JA: Are you fixing your I30 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: My self and my husband. We have replaced the starter, altinator, battery, (-) bathery terminal
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: It's been a year since we replaced starter but I have a silenoid for starter on its way

Expert:  david craig replied 3 months ago.

ok then you need to do a continuity test of the wiring from the ignition switch connector to the inhibit relay plug

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Ok how do I do that

you have to gain access to the ignition switch connector first.

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Do you still need help with this issue?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Expert:  Jay replied 3 months ago.

Do you have a volt meter? Also will you be available later this evening around 7:30 pm EST? That is when I will be online for the night..

Let me know

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I won't have the vehicle tonight and I have a digital multimeter
Expert:  Jay replied 3 months ago.

Ok, The gray plug going to the starter, when the key is in the Crank Position, do you have battery voltage there?

Expert:  Jay replied 3 months ago.

I will try to work with you on this now if that is ok?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
11.99
Expert:  Jay replied 3 months ago.

That is good...

Do you get a signal click when you try to start it? The starter does not engage right?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
one click and no crank
Expert:  Jay replied 3 months ago.

I can tell you that if you put after market starters in the car, they bench test good cause there is no load on them. But as soon as you put it in the car, the starter may not be able to handle the load to fully operate and turn the engine over.

Since you getting voltage on the request signal wire, I am sure you have constant voltage at the 12 mm nut on the starter solenoid. I would get a starter from the dealer, that is most likely the issue.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Ok. Thank you
