When you say ETC symbol you mean the Electronic Throttle Control light? When you say "Dead" do you mean no dash lights what so ever or it just cranks but won't start or nothing at all from the key?Nitro was in perfect shape then.....🌩 during a thunderstorm a lightning ball hit my tree and my Nitro was parked right beside it. Now the ETC symbol is on and it's dead. Bro-In-Law took the battery out and charged it fully, put it back, NOTHING. Symbol is still on and the scanner won't work to give a code. Now this single Mom and Granny is stranded at home...blah! Any suggestions?
I would check Battery connections first, make sure they are clean and tight. Then if you can someone listen to hear where the clicking is coming from, description sounds like the starter solenoid is clicking but the the connection in the solenoid on the starter isn't making good contact and thus making the starter turn.Dead- just clicks when trying to start but all lights work
