Default Car Won't Start (Friends Car)

one of my friends is having a major issue with his car, neither does he or I have any clue at whats wrong. So i'm hoping i can get some helpful info from here to get back to him.

well problem is that his car (1995 infiniti J30) won't start. At first a shop said it was because of his factory alarm that wouldn't allow his car to start so he got that fixed and it started with a jump and would die as soon as he put it in drive. one of his buddies said it could be the alternator but i said maybe its ur battery. so we went and bought one and put it in and fine his car started np and he drove it work and back. well he calls me today and its the same issue as last time. he goes to turn the car on and it turns on but as soon as he hits the brake and goes to put it in drive it shuts off.

any1 have any ideas what could be wrong?

I am not an expert,
If the car dies when the brake pedal is engaged, that to me is an indication of the alarm doing it's job as if someone where trying to steal the car if it has a "Kill Feature".

Let's see what some of the experts have to say.

Default Re: car won't start (friends car)

when you say it shuts off ? means the battery goes DEAD ? or the motor shuts down ?

if its electric going down , he needs to check the alternator and the chargeback wire, also check the main fuses relays and see if they are getting hott.

but if your saying as soon as it goes into (D) gear ... it could be a bad TPS , MAF , clean out the throttle body.

any SES Code ?

Also , on the 300zx theres a wire in front by the grille, from experenice , the wire rots and if you shake it , the car shuts off , since the j30 carrys the VG motor, I assume the same harness is on there,

I would check the IAC,MAF , TPS first , I assume the car was running fine before all this happen , what was the last thing your friend did ? or didnt do ( tune up ? or neglected it ? )
