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

What year FX is this?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it is 2010
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

ok, so this is a FX35, not a FX37...

When you try to start it do you get a rapid clicking or a single click when you try to start it?

Does the battery have 6 small caps on the top of it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have not looked at the battery and the car is broken down away from here so I cant see it at the moment.

What model is this? Is this a Infiniti?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
This is a push button.There seems to be a problem with the intelligent key it will not move from the lock position so will not even turn over.the yellow key lights is illuminated.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Is the steering wheel locked?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

That is your issue. Your issue is the steering lock control unit. Watch this video and try these steps. I am sure you will find this will allow the car to start until you can replace the steering lock control unit.

Hi Jay, I have tried this and it did not work.My Infiniti does not have a plastic control box like the one in the video, It has a slim metal box.I tried tapping the box with a hammer, with the remote key in, foot on the brake etc and it still would not start.
many thanks,
David.

It is a metal box on the column. If tapping it does not allow it to operate, then it would need to go to the dealer to have it replaced to get you up and going.
