2001 Infiniti QX • 17,700 miles

Hello my name is Ke.I have a 2001 infinity qx4. It will not do anything when I try to start it. Not even sound like it wants to crank. Only the lights come on and it just make a click when I turn the key. It has never done this before. I went to the store yesterday just fine. When I came out it started but I noticed the
Dash lights were all on& I shut it off& started it again& it did the same thing but drove me home perfectly fine. I went outside again once I made it home& tried to crank it& it only made the clicking sound. Could you guys please please help me out that's my only source of transportation! Your help would be greatly appreciated! Have a blessed day. Also me email is kecarter@rocketmail. Com if you would like to email me.I am in desperate need of help with the vehicle!

What about the IAC, was it cleaned?
Did you check for trouble codes?

Is the IAC located on the throttle body as well? Im not sure where it's located. I'm new to trying to figure out about the vehicle b/c it so electronic& I'm just trying to learn my vehicle.& I appreciate all the help y'all are giving! I can't check for trouble codes b/c I can't get it started to get to auto zone or any where.

Did you use carb cleaner to clean?

I bought throttle body cleaner to clean it.

Try this to see if it helps. Repeat if necessary.

Idle Air Volume Learning Procedure

1. Turn ignition switch on. Wait at least one second. Turn ignition switch off. Wait at least ten seconds.

2. Start engine. Warm up to normal operating temperature. Turn ignition switch off. Wait at least ten seconds.

3. Start engine and let idle for at least thirty seconds.

4. Disconnect Throttle Position (TP) sensor harness connector (Brown), then reconnect it within five seconds. Wait twenty seconds.

5. Ensure idle speed is within specifications. If idle is not as specified, result will be incomplete.

6. Rev engine two or three times. Ensure idle speed and ignition timing are within specification.

Have rechecked the air hose between MAF and throttle body for vacuum leakages? Try cleaning the MAF as well.
