car wont start randomly
i have an 03 z with almost 70k miles. my problem started off almost 8 months ago and i was having battery draining issues. i had previously bought a new battery and it had a 3 year warranty. i took it back and got a replacement just before the 3 years was up. i had the generator, alternator, battery all tested and all were fine. but something continued to drain my battery if i didnt drive it for 3-5 days straight. as long as i'd go crank it up and drive it it seemed to be ok.
then this new problem started. i started having cranking issues. at first i wasnt sure what it was as the power and everything in the car would turn on but when i turn the key nothing happened. it was like trying to start the car with the clutch not pressed in. so i would shake the keys while turning it and pressing the clutch...it started cranking up again fine. so then i thought maybe it's the ignition switch going out. after doing that for a week i could no longer get the car to start by that method so then i thought maybe something with the clutch was jacked up as it seems to act like it's not knowing the clutch is engaged. anyways this is really annoying and to top it off i already took it to a nissan dealership, described the problem in detail, they kept it over the weekend, and charged me 100 bucks for tightening a loose battery cable.
1. does anyone know what this might be, or possibly be
2. anyone know any good mechanics in north dallas/lewisville area?
i think it's an electrical issue either with the ignition switch or possible clutch. if that's the case this could also possibly explain the draining of the battery as well? any thoughts?
