Question about 2005 Infiniti QX56
MY QX56 TRIES TO START BUT WONT. I HAD THE FUEL PUMP,. CAM SHAFT SENSOR, AND PLUGS REPLACED AND IT STILL WONT START. I TRIED MY SPARE KEY TO SEE IF THE COMPUTER WAS READING MY KEYS; AND THATS NOT THE PROBLEM. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS?
There is two "boxes" right behind the battery on the pass. side fender well. take a small hammer or rubber mallot and "tap" the box farthest into the cowling. try starting the vehicle immediatly after. (be gentle as to not break the plastic box, but don't be affraid to give it a smack) lightly tap the CAN mounted directly on the fender behind these plastic boxes as well, if it starts replace CAN communication area network its a fancy name for another computer

Had the similar problem last night with our 2005 Infiniti QX56. After a day of normal driving and performance, the car would crank and crank like normal, but would not fire and seemed like maybe the fuel pump was out. My wife and I tried several things and then resorted to calling the Dave Baldwin from Best Deal Auto Sales of Auburn, Indiana and he had me go out and perform the following sequence that I chuckled at as we went through the steps:
1) shut all doors unlocked
2) lock the car with the key from the outside of the vehicle
3) lock the vehicle with the fob by pressing the lock button
4) unlock the vehicle with the fob by pressing the unlock button
5) get in and start the car
To my amazement, it worked!!!!! It is only just over a week old vehicle for us and even with the 8 years+ of college, the Infiniti and Dave are each much smarter than us ;-) See if it works for you!!! I am not certain of how or why it worked, but Dave said that their is a securtiy feature that disables the fuel pump and will not allow intruders to start the QX56. He said the most common way to have this happen is in the summer when it is typical for someone to lock their car with the windows down and then unlocks the vehicle by pressing the unlock button from through the window...Although this was not the case with us, maybe it will provide some insight. So far no other forums I have been on has provided this as a solution.

Open up the air intake hose and spray some 'starting fluid' in there while someone else is inside starting the starting. if the engine turns over while ur spraying then there's no gas getting to the engine. u might have water in the gas tank, i had the same problem.
