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.

Could either be the ignition switch, the starter solenoid or the starter itself. Ask a mechanic to wire start the vehicle, by bridging the contacts at the starter solenoid. If the car starts, then the ignition is the culprit. If the car doesnt start, then it could be either the starter solenoid, or the starter. In my experience, if it clicks once, then it cant be the ignition switch, and if it clicked more than once, it couldnt be the solenoid. So i would look at the solenoid as the probable culprit.

Won't start - Starter or ignition or what?


It could be the ignition going out. To test the ignition you would have to get a volt meter and find the hot wire to the ignition. When nothing happens when you turn the key, test the hot wire going out of the ignition that eventually goes to the starter. Your ignition is just like a light switch, just a little more complex. You will have to find the wire that connects the switch to the starter to see if the switch is working properly. If when you try to start the car see how many volts you are getting. It should be at 0 until you try to start the car. then it should jump up to either 12 or 24 volts depending on what your start used to start the vehicle. A lose wire from the battery can cause these same problems however. I would start with that and make sure you have good clean battery posts and connections. Then check to make sure they are tight. Then get into the ignition switch checks.
