2003 or 2004? Is the steering wheel locked?

Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
2004 yes its locked
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 3 months ago

Ok.. So if the steering wheel is locked, what you will need to do is use some force and turn the steering wheel slowly to the right while trying to turn the key. If the steering wheel does not release that way, then try turning it to the left...

Give that a shot and let me know how you make out

Okay that didnt work.

My husband said the key is letting us unlock the doors and roll down the windows but it still wont let us turn the car on
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 3 months ago

It may require some force to do this.. The way the steering lock system works is like a Dead Bolt for a Door. So you have to wiggle it back and forth or apply pressure and turn it as far as it can go slowly to get it to release..

Does the head lights turn on?

Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Only turns on when we press lock and unlock on the remote
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 3 months ago

I am wondering if the battery of the car is weak causing your issue.. Since this is partially a electronic ignition

Customer reply replied 3 months ago

Customer reply replied 3 months ago

Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 3 months ago

Well I would try to jump start the car first to see if it's really a battery
