My 1999 Infiniti I30 is not cranking. I have power and lights but the engine doesnt crank. I put a rebuilt starter in March 2008 . It died last nigt and this morning I was able to turn it over and drive it home. When I got it home and tried to restart it was dead again. I tapped the starter but still nothing. Occasionally it will crank a little and then stop again. ANy suggestions?
Also check the starter solenoid, other issues could be the neutral safety switch for the transmission, bad battery leads or ignition switch. I also have had a similar problem caused by the transponder key loosing its code. Good Luck.

If this fuse only blows when you crank the engine then this would tell me the starter is shorting out and blowning the fuse. make sure to check it by replacing the fuse and turning the key on without cranking the engine and if the fuse doesnt blown then crank the engine and if the fuse blows then its the starter, replace the starter and this will take care of the problem.good day and hope this is helpful.
the starter cranks the engine, the switch in the trunk has a button that you depress to reset the fuel pump. if the fuel pump doesnt operate then the switch may tripped, the button is DOWN. So does the engine crank? does it not crank? cranks but wont run? if it cranks but wont run, then check the switch in the trunk. Power goes to that switch and then to the pump, so if that switch has power going through it, and the pump doesnt work, the pump is bad. when turning the key on you should hear the pump go on for 2 seconds.
There are only two problems with electrical circuits. Too much amperage or too little amperage.We have to determine what you have.
An excellent test is to put your test meter red lead on the positive battery post and the black lead on the negative battery post. Crank the engine and record the voltage. Then place the red meter lead on the starter's battery terminal and the black lead on the negative battery post. Again crank the engine and record the voltage. The two voltages should be with in one half volt of each other. If the voltage difference is greater that one half volt, there is a resistance in the circuit, somewhere. I would expect the voltage to drop a volt or two, max
If the voltage dosent drop, there is high resistance resulting in low amperage. If the voltage drops too low then there is low resistance resulting in high amperage.
High resistance=dirty terminals
Low resistance = shorted wire, slow turning cranking motor maybe caused by bad starter, bad battery or hard to turn engine. ( engine bad, alternator or power steering pump bad, a/c pump bad, etc)
Can use head light for test. Turn on lights and note the brightness. Crank engine. If while cranking, the lights stay bright= high resistance.
If lights go dim = low resistance.
verify that you have a fully charge battery and that you have the same amount of voltage at the battery as at the starter when the key is turned to the start position. If not repair fault at positive cable either at battery or at starter. If voltage checks good. Use a remote starter and turn key to the on position and try to crank over engine with remote starter. if engine cranks over. You have a defective starter solenoid and starter must be replaced.
This will almost always be the starter itself. If I had a dollar for all the bad starters I've seen on Infinitis I'd be rich. Even though they are far less expensive, rebuilt starters are definintely not the way to go. I've seen them last 1 or 2 days, or 1 or 2 years. The starter will do absolutely nothing when it is bad, you turn the key and no noise, no clicking, no nothing. Often times you can have someone tap on the starter with a bar or something as you try to turn it over. It is down low on the drivers side of the engine. If it starts, don't bank on it starting again. But that is one way you can diagnose it yourself. I just would not recommend an auto part store starter.
