Friendly advice: When you post in all upper case most of the guys will skip over you question, its hard to read and there are too many questions that need attention. Now that being said, with a good starter and battery that leaves solenoid and cables. Possibly the battery black neg-- ground on the frame, or chassis wherever it grounds is not making a connection, the dissimilar metals can lose contact after a while. Also, the safety interlock on brake pedal, it won't start if that is faulty, or same on clutch if manual. Maybe try running a jumper cable from battery Pos+ to starter with key on..but be safe about it in case it does start, don't want you run over by a lurching car--it happens.

Ok, you have the security covered...so I am thinking the safety interlocks.Those are not as easy to test, not sure how it works on Infinity, but many cars it's the brake light switch, or if automatic try starting in neutral instead of Park..throwing out ideas now. If manual have a look to see if there is a button type switch under clutch pedal and see if it's loose

If you click on 'related questions' right below this, there is one like yours, turned out to be bad ignition switch. That is especially likely if you have a heavy key-ring, with lots of keys and unnecessary items, flashlight....the weight swinging plays havoc on ignition switches

It may be a shot in the dark, but, make sure you have shifted all the way into park. Once a penny fell in front of the gear shift and my car was not going all the way into park, and would not start when I needed to use my car next....i was a little distraught until i looked down and noticed the penny wedged in there. Pulled it out, problem solved.

i really need help am new at this but i know my way a bit around cars

hey guys. I own a 2013 lancer ES. My remote key fob stopped working because the battery ran out. I replaced the battery and it doesn`t lock and unlock the doors anymore. The fob because its lights come on and a locksmith checked that and it`s definitely working. I checked the WEB and youtube for reprogramming but all the tutorials were for 05-12 models. I also did the manual instructions but nothing happened. The dealership told me they charge me 220 dollars for that. I only have one fob, it is the only i got from the previous owner. Would you plz help me? thanks
