The start will have to be pulled out to the front. Once I found the secret combination for snaking the rack out, I thought I was home free, only to have an equally difficult job of snaking out the starter. Infiniti must have hired an engineer from Yugo. If clutch interlock switch does not have power on two terminals either the ignition switch is not sending power or the clutch interlock switch is bad. Once released, unplg the harness from the bulb and replace bulb.
Then I replaced the interlock relay. Granted I don't have a bumper or fender wells in the way. Then maneuver it out around the motor mount. But the factory service manual would have all the info you need to safely and correct … ly remove the intake without damaging any of the delicate fuel injection parts. Just squeeze the plug and wiggle it… What engine???????? There is a black plastic ring that you must turn to get the bulb to release.
The appropriate professional should be consulted regarding your specific condition. At least that's what my mechanic told me after I replaced my starter of course that also entails removing the rack, also on my back and side under the car on ramps, lol with a newly remanufactured unit and the new starter did the same thing. This is also under the oil filter, so you may want to degrease the starter before you start. Nissan schematics are kind of odd, the only power source for the starter solenoid I can see would be through the ignition switch, getting power from a fusible link at the battery, which is why I'm wondering if he has an interlock switch.

It's the same for Maxima and Pathfinder. I have had my Q45 for about 2 years and it has 109k miles. I think I could yoga the starter out by going down and straight back while rotating it, but i'm not certain. All in all, I dumped 12-18 hours into the project on my back and side on a concrete floor. Hope this will help good luck! If anyone messes with a 4000 lb machine capable of 100 mph, these are real possibilities.
Remanned unit was just cleaned , polished and repainted. That adds a little more to look at in the schematic. Pulled the relay down, off its mounting bracket. I've found a few references online for replacing the starter in older Pathfinders, and they supposedly required a lot of work like removing the half shaft, or unbolting the motor and jacking it up. I am new to Infinity and this forum.

I figure i'll do it at the same time as the lift kit install and this way my wife just thinks its one project Thanks! I ended up putting it all back together as best as I could and handing it off to that good mechanic, who found out right away it was only a relay. Sensor 1 is pre cat and sensor 2 is post cat converter. True and I read that you said 'getting power from a fusible link at the battery' so that might be the intermittent issue. One goes in from the front and one screws in from the back.
. Replacing a Radio Disconnect neg. Let us know if it works or not. Left enough wire sticking out of the wire harness so I can splice new wire onto it. I used long extensions and wobble sockets to get it out. This is one of the most ridiculously complex jobs on this car. Locate this relay unplug wire and plug it into your new relay.
But be really careful to not arc out the battery cables at the solenoid. It makes sure the clutch is depressed, and that the key is turned, before it will power the starter. An alternate way of doing this would be to take it straight out after remove the bolt holding the engine wire chasis and stabilizer bar. After 10 or more years in service, the Pathfinder suffers a common starting problem. If I get in over my head, I call a professional mechanic.
