Default Car won't Start:(

Hi Guys. Just a random day a couple days ago my car decided not to start anymore. Tried the battery, looked good. Looked at the fuses, looked good from what I could see. The Headlights will turn out, taillights will turn on, some dash lights besides the gauges will turn on. The car will not crank or make any noise when trying to push start it. Ive checked and haven't been able to find legit reasons behind the car not starting. I will be contacting Nissan tomorrow to see what it could be. However, I would like to fix this situation without taking it to the dealership because of how expensive it may be. I do not have anymore warranty due to the high mileage. Also waiting to tow it anywhere because of the cost as well.

If anyone can help I would appreciate it greatly. If you do not have any positive comments I would appreciate it if you did not post. Just trying to fix this with as less money spent as possible. THANK YOU GUYS!!

Default Sorry for the thread revival

But I can confirm in my australian 2013 370Z that the issue comes from the clutch interlock switch that was shown on page 3 of this thread. Genuine replacement parts are coming from Japan which will take 4-6 weeks but it was only Aud30 or so. The mechanic has cleaned the two connecting rods thing in the switch and car starts up now without any hesitation.

Some final notes:
If you're experiencing the constant cycling between lock, ACC, On and off without anything else happening, this clutch interlock switch is probably dieing.
If you're having slow cranking, consider a new battery with a minimum of 582 CCA. I went with PowerSonic PNS70LMF batteries at my local Bridgestone Tire Centre and it fits fine in the battery compartment. MIND YOU, the car needs constant power even when swapping batteries, otherwise you'll have to factory reset the ECU at your local Nissan to get the windows to close up when you close your door.
Not much I can say about the steering lock mechanism except that you should have power steering function i.e. no steering lock when the car is on ON, otherwise get that checked.

Hope this helps!

How would you keep constant power? i was thinking one of those devices that have a 9v battery ,and it plugs into the acc socket inside the vehicle while the battery gets changed. Would something like that work?

I wouldn't worry about it. You can reset the windows in about 30 seconds from the driver's seat and the ECM will relearn the engine after a few miles. It will take a few drive cycles before the emissions system will report OK.

Default 370z wont start

so the same thing happen to my 2009 370z the yellow key symbol would come on and the car would make no noise at all so i found out it was the steering lock column switch and yes i checked the battery it was good. i checked the key fob that was good. and i checked the battery in the key fob and that was good as well so i tuck it to the dealer because i tried to do it my self but the bolts they put are special bolts they torque them down till the bolt pretty much snaps inside the steering lock column switch plus the dealer has to program the new switch hope this helps some one cuz no one ever said how they got it fixed or what was wrong with it good luck Zfam.

You may want to create a new thread for this concern since this is really an old thread.
