Hi,

Original; He couldn’t explain why, but James felt guilty.

My attempt: Er konnte nicht erklären warum, aber James fühlte sich schuldig.

Thanks in advance for any comments.

Hallo,

m.E. passt das.
Man könnte es noch etwas deutlicher machen indem man sagt:
"Er konnte es sich selbst nicht erklären warum, aber James fühlte sich schuldig."
