infiniti: After parking it I went back to the car appx..raining)

Customer Question
My infiniti seemed to be...
My infiniti seemed to be working well. After parking it I went back to the car appx. 2 hours later and powered it up to close windows (it was raining) and shut down the power. 2-3 hours after that I attempted to start the car and it had no power. The engine failed to turn over and would not start even with a "jump."

What are the possible problems?

2007 g35x with push button start
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 8 years ago
Most common I have seen with dead battery issues with push button start cars, is when the customer goes to turn the car off, they press the start button multiple times and quickly leave the car. Not knowing that they walked away and left the key on. So what I would do is have the battery charged and checked. If there is no voltage draw on the electrical system, you may have done this by mistake. So even if you tried to jump it, especially with push button start cars, if you don't have enough voltage, it will not engage the starter.

If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask. Thanks Jay!

Thanks for the obvious.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 8 years ago
That is what I have seen, and have encountered customers doing that.

If you want to check to see if there is a draw, you should have no more than .05 amps.If you have more than that, then you would pull fuses one by one till you pull one that drops the draw with in that range. Then that is the circuit that would need to be checked. There also have been some vent control valves that can cause a draw.

If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask. Thanks Jay!

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!
