  1. I can’t upload the video of it cranking as it’s not the right file type. If anyone has any suggestions there that would be great🤣
  2. Regarding the immobilizer, that’s not the problem. I realized that if the immobilizer was the problem, the fuel pump would not be priming when the ignition is on. It is priming the way it should if it were running.
  3. Yeah. I’m going to look at and suggest a hard ECU reset.
  4. No, it’s a US model but we are currently in the US. I’m not sure on mileage but I’d guess 130-150k miles, which over here is quite good for a 2003. I’ll look at trying to do a hard reset for the ECU. I think he pulled the injectors last night, and all of the connectors had power when the ignition was on, but I told him to check the actual injectors themselves also. I have also told him it might just worth replacing all 6, as well as the coils and spark plugs. I will definitely research NATS failure also. And I’ll work on getting a video of it cranking! Stay posted for that
  5. It has not driven since my neighbor bought it, but the guy before him said he had driven it over to his girl’s house and it wouldn’t start back up when he tried to leave. The information my friend was given was a bit vague so he’s been retracing the previous owners steps with it. The car simply stopped running, and didn’t ever start back up again.
  6. UPDATE: we switched the ignition relay with the headlamp low relay from the engine fuse box, and nothing changed. We also checked the “ENG CONT INJ” 10A fuse and other fuses under the dash and they were good. You can hear the fuel pump priming every time the ignition is on, and the fuel rails are definitely getting fuel. Like I responded earlier this evening, we’re going to pull injectors next time. So, so far we have checked the intake/plenum, the spark plugs, coils, fuel rails/lines, the fuel pump (and replaced the old one to no avail), ignition relay, fuel pump relay, immobilizer (like someone here suggested, and watched the YT video linked with no success), and the “ENG CONT INJ” fuse. If it was your car, what would your next steps be?
  7. Current battery still holding 12.3V today after cranking the car a few times and sitting overnight.
  8. We are in the US. I’m British overseas, returning next year. Is the UpRev map still something doable over here? Also, there’s absolutely no immobilizer light on at all, not when the car is locked with doors closed or with the key in and ignition on. I’m assuming this is not what should be happening. Definitely going to try pulling injectors next time I’m there.
  9. I’ll tell him this. How would you go about fixing the immobiliser if that is the case? I’ll check the video out and relay information to him. It’s an automatic though so no clutch pedal.
  10. This is all the information he gave me. He’s my neighbor and just moved recently. No codes were pulled though. Should I suggest he look again?
  11. The fuel lines are getting fuel. He hasn’t pulled injectors out to my knowledge. Spark plugs are good. 3 coils were replaced and work fine. In terms of air, the aftermarket filter is fine and the throttle isn’t stuck. He said he wants to check timing next but is really procrastinating it obviously as it’s a bigger job. Assuming all 3 are indeed fine, what would be your next step? Thanks
  12. Yep, battery was replaced even though the old one tested fine.
  13. Hi. Posting this for a friend. My friend just bought a 350Z from a guy who said it just randomly stopped running. He has replaced the crankshaft position sensor and both cam position sensors but the issue persists. It ran fine with a slight misfire two days before it stopped, according to the guy who sold it. It cranks over but just will not start up. The fuel pump has been replaced by the previous guy and all the fuses are good. He’s at a loss as to what to check next or where to look. I have a new 370Z and can’t really help much as I do body stuff and am not an expert mechanic. Any suggestions will be helpful.
  14. Hey guys, bit late to the party here but I’m wanting to get off JUST the silver trim pieces, not the cluster if I can. Any advice? I know there’s 3 hooks but I cannot get the top to pop out no matter what I try and I don’t want to break it!
