Ok. Here's the deal. My NX has had problems starting. One day i went to start my baby and it started really funny. (You know the sound a starter makes when it barely has enough juice to start the car). Anywho later that night it wouldnt start at all. It wasn't the battery because when i turned the key to start it the interior light didnt dim. It just clicked. I parked it in the garage while i was out of town for a week and then the car started when i got back. I checked the connections and they appeared fine. Then later that night it rained and the car hasnt started since. Im thinking that there is a short in the starter and it needs to be replaced. Could it be anything else? I'm just going to buy a starter and have the dealer put that little bastard in, but i don't want to waste $ if it turns out thats not the problem.
Thanx

Check all the fuses. At least on my car I have a bad problem with the Eng Cont fuse next to the battery blowing. It was caused by me but I have heard of at least one other person having the same problem.

Thats not it. it was the first thing i checked. It's probably the solenoid.

Im having the same problem on my G20. One day it starts fine. an hour later, nothing. I have checked fuses, wires etc. but plan on ordering a new starter, which is kind of expensive.

Cost of seeing the vein in my forehead appear, priceless.
