My car is a 1997 Infiniti I30 (base model, automatic) and initially I had intermittent starting problems (no click or turnover but dash lights would come on), so I replaced the ignition switch and everything worked in a couple of test starts. And here is where the real problem begins…my not-so brilliant self end up crossing over some of the soldered connections when I went to screw it into the "steering column’ and of course I had neglected to disconnect the battery.
So there was a quick spark and now the car wont start/turnover, no dash lights come on (except for speedometer backlight), no radio, no a/c, no clock, and no window power. The few things that actually do work are the interior lights, headlights, and power/remote locks.
I’ve checked all of the ‘obvious’ fuses and even swapped back the old ignition switch but to no avail. Any help or advice from the community will be greatly appreciated.
