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

What do you mean power turned off? Do you mean it just stalled out on you? Like the ignition was turned off?

I was driving on the highway cruise Control about 80 and the car start slowing down, hitting the gas did nothing. Then the VDC off, and, slip and ras lights came on and then it completely shut off and will not start it clicks.
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 5 months ago

When you say it clicks, are you getting rapid clicking? or a Single Click?

Rapid
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 5 months ago

That is normally a sign of a weak battery. Maybe the Alternator is not charging. Do you have a Battery charger or someone who can possibly jump start you to see if the car will start?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I don't have a charger, but I'm trying to see if I can flag someone down cause I thought of that too, to rule it out.
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 5 months ago

If the Car starts with a Jump Start, and stalls when you take the cables off, or shortly after, that is a Alternator issue.

NOW!!! LISTEN!!!

These older M's are very sensitive on how they are jump started. So let me explain so you don't damage any computers...

OK
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 5 months ago

When you jump start any car!!! You always connect the Positive Cable First!! Then the Negative Second!!

If you connect Negative first, and Positive Second you can cause a Voltage Surge which damages Control units..

Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 5 months ago

So I will say it again..Always connect the Positive Cable First!! Then the Negative Second!!
