Customer Question
Good morning, my son...

Good morning, my son was driving his 2003 i35 and it died on him and now it wont start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

New battery and it still will not start, i had the camshaft sensors replaced in july 2017

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your I35 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I replaced the fuel pump, fuel pump relay, crankshaft sensor

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

When i turn the key on there,s a whining/ grinding sound,.

if that is the case then you most likely have a bad battery you should try to jump start the car or replace the battery

it sound like a bad battery, but the battery has been replaced, also if i leave the battery attached to the terminals, the battery drains.
