1997 QX4 - no power

Asked by Jan 11, 2016 at 10:19 AM about the 1997 INFINITI QX4 4 Dr STD 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1997 Infiniti QX4. My wife tried to start it this morning and it was totally dead, no lights, no clicking, nothing. I put a battery charger on the battery and one of the fuse/modules under the cover in the engine compartment on the drivers side started clicking and the battery charger wasn't charging. The fuse/module is labeled "headlight/security". Is this just a blown fuse or is this symptomatic of a more serious issue?

The module I described is actually the Anti Theft Head Lamp relay. It continues to click when I attach the battery charger.

Got this sorted out. The battery was so drained that the relay wouldn't allow a charge due to the anti-theft. Disconnected the positive battery cable and recharged the battery. Hooked things back up and everything was fine..
