Question about 2004 Infiniti FX45
Is it my starter or ignition switch. just clicks and then eventually starts. sometimes hit brake pedal and shift to N. sometimes starts right up, sometimes 20 trys/clicks before turns starter and starts(immediately after the start actually engages).
Probably the solenoid on the starter. Is that what is clicking? Listen for it, if clicking at the starter, probably a bad starter solenoid. Some cars, not all, have a starter relay in the starting circuit. If clicking at a relay block and not from starter, check for a start relay.

Sounds like it went into theft mode when you unhooked the battery and tried to start it multiple times. Most cars have some sort of SKIM key which is a key with a computer chip in it that is programmed to a module in the car. If this programming is lost by a battery diosconnect it usually needs to be reprogrammmed by a dealer. The reason it won't start is because the theft mode probably has the fuel or spark disabled as a theft deterrent.

The throttle position sensor responds to the accelerator pedal movement. This sensor is a kind of potentiometer which transforms the throttle position into output voltage and emits the voltage signal to the ECM. In addition, the sensor detects the opening and closing speed of the throttle valve and feeds the voltage signal to the ECM. Idle position of the throttle valve is determined by the ECM receiving the signal from the throttle position sensor. This one controls engine operation such as fuel cut, etc. The throttle position sensor unit has a built-in “wide open and closed throttle position switch,” which is not used to control the engine. For the G35, the throttle position sensor is part of the throttle control actuator.

Assuming the battery has a full charge, the clicking is likely the solenoid on the starter trying to engage. If you are good at mechanics, remove the starter/solenoid unit and have it checked at either the dealership or one of the national auto parts stores that can test the starter/solenoid
Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks.
