Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Sounds like the battery is dead or low have you checked that yet? tried to jump it?

Infiniti Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

That needs to be addressed then, that will cause a ton of problems we need to get a better battery in there

Charging again with a better charger. But steering wheel,brake pedal and gear shift lever not working
Infiniti Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

are you charging that on the car? if so that can cause issues as well, always charge batteries disconnected from the vehicle, I would run it up to the auto parts store and have them test it they will do this for free and charge it of its good

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!
