My car just died after stopping at the gas station. there is a clicking noise coming from both the car starter module box and the fuse box on the inside of the car. I do not have power door locks or windows but when you open the drivers back door it sets off a fast click in the fuse panel. the battery has power and so does the main disturbution box under the hood, but for some reason the rest of the car doesn't.

Hi eyansdaddy, Sounds like a bad connection on the battery , check the earth cable on the battery and the one that earths the engine to the bodywork (at the bottom of the engine) if there worn or frayed it can stop the engine from starting. all the best Scott
Sounds like a bad ignition module. The module does two functions. It runs the ignition coil and also delivers the signal to the ecm to run the injectors. Sounds like it isn't putting out a tach signal.
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.
the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.
Get a new battery. The battery seems to be too drained of power. It will still light the dash but does not have enough power to turn the starter.Of course, before buying the battery, have it tested. Probably has a dead cell.
On the air conditioner, it seems you may have the condenser drain hose pulled out of the dash hole that leads to the outside and the water that condenses goes into the car instead of to the street. Of course, it also could be that the plastic housing is cracked and the water leaks out through that.
