Customer Question
Push button will not...

Push button will not ingage starter. All power functions come on, so it's not a battery problem. I tried inserting key fob into the slot, still no engine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

How can I check? Will it work with no battery if it's inserted in the key fob slot?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Infiniti?

2009 m35x

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your M35x yourself? What have you tried so far?

2009 m35x

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I'm sitting in a gas station parking lot. This just happened for the first time when I got back in my car.

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

Try putting the car into neutral and see if the engine turns over to start? Also pay attention to see if you hear a single click when trying to start the vehicle?

Didn't work in neutral. Yes there was one click
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 11 months ago

Thank you. A single click is a sign of a bad starter I am afraid. So that is why it's not engaging. You will need to replace the starter to resolve your issue.

When it comes to electrical parts, I always suggest getting them from the dealer. After Market Starter don't tend to last. The average is a year or less if you even get one that works out of the box. So I know the dealer is more expensive, but I would get the part there. That is just my recommendation on that.

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
