It is a 1997 QX4, was starting and running fine and then it just wont start. Lights and everything works, no crank at all on the starter, no clicks or anything just nothing. Ignition relay??
JA: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?
Customer: Just shy of 200,000
JA: Are you fixing your QX4 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes, and this is as far as I have researched. Have looked at some other sites and it has pointed me to a bad relay
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Has had an engine light on and had it diagnosed as a fuel vapor sensor.

This can also be a security system fault. I attached a reset procedure for you to review and try. in most cases, this takes care of the problem unless there is a fault in the system to whereas the computer system needs to be addressed with a scan tool. After reading the preliminaries, then scroll down to your car/Toyota ie: lexus.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly
appreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and I
will still assist you after you have rated me too if another
question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron

Thank you, ***** ***** have also read that that could also be the problem. I don't know if this is part of the problem, but I found it odd that I cannot get the car out of park. Is that part of the possible security problem or a neutral safety switch problem or none of the above. As it is right now I don't know how it could be towed as I do have AAA.

Thanks for the call.

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!
