Try running the codes on the ECM. I don't have any idea on your electrical issues, but my check engine light was caused by a clogged EGR, malfunctioning camshaft position sensor, and defective coil(s), which although it still ran OK would have eventually caused it to stall.

If you are not averse to used parts, I have gotten a bunch of cheap used parts from salvage lots listed on car-part.com. That is the only place I have gone to look for parts since 2000.
#663 of 691 Fuel Pickup Issues--Sensor Locations?
Jan 05, 2008 (2:48 pm)
I've got a 94 J30, under 100K miles. I ran some errands yesterday, and the car ran great. Parked it in the garage, now it won't start.
My neighbor came over and diagnosed the problem as some kind of fuel pickup issue. He tested all the fuses, and everything tested at 12V. Then, everything started getting complicated. After ripping all the panels out of the trunk, he uncovered the tank. Evidently, the fuel pump relay is working fine, because turning on the ignition causes gas to move. So cool.
He wants to start testing sensors, but we're not sure where to find them. The one he's specifically asking about is the camshaft sensor (I think), and then I'm sure he'll be asking about the locations of other ones. You guys have a better idea of what to look at, I think.
Anyway, where is the camshaft/crankshaft sensor located?
Oh, and Happy New Year!

First, Congrats! I own a pearl white 97 j30t and yes the windshield defroster vent is popping up and because of the location (windshield vs dash) you can't get over it to apply pressure and have yet to pop them back in. I feel your pain. I'm at 112K miles and have not changed the timing belt and that worries me alot. I have had only to problems with mine (other than the dash vents) and fixed one today. It was the rattle of the right rear 6x9 speaker. I removed it (by the way, the rear speakers have their own on-board amps) and glued the center cone dust cover back to the main cone with thick cyanoacrylate (super glue). And the Bose system is now back and sounds clean. The other is the remote and door switch trunk lock. It moves but doesn't travel far enough to unlatch any more. Still investigating this one. Well you may have these problems to so be surprised . Just enjoy driving again like I do but only when I drive my J . Oh yeah, I'm putting on the 2007 G35 OEM 17" five spokes alloys with GY eagle RSAs as soon as UPS shows up. Found them on eBay. So I'll also be screaming soon.

#667 of 691 J30 Power windows

I have a 1997 J30, which I purchased at 47K on it. For the most part, it has been a very good car; I plan to stay in the infinite line. However, I have had problems with the window motors. I have changed two motors since I purchased the car. I am in the process of changing the second motor on the passages side. The motor is from a used J30 that had about 30K on it. I replaced the motor and when I preformed the operational check of the new motor, the window did not want to go up. It was very slow as if was binding. I double-checked the alignment I disconnect the motor and operated it without the window attached and it worked fine. I even lub the window tracks. I do know what is going on and I have done this a time or two….

I bought a 1993 J30 in 2000 with about 12,000 miles on it. It had one owner with all work done by the dealer. I loved it and put 100,000 more miles on it. I totalled it a few weeks ago and am on another car search. I looked at J30s here in Houston and there were several listed with prices from $5000 to $1500. I see a lot of Infinis here which may affect the price being lower. In Seattle when I bought mine, Infinitis were unusual. Bottom line: J30 and mileage sound good, but price seems high.

In 2000, I bought a 1993 J30 with about 12K miles on it. I drove it for 100K miles and it needed minimum repairs. It should have gone to 200K miles without any question according to my dealer and I delighted to have me J30 to count on for a few more years. Unfortunately, I ran into a terrible rainstorm on a black night in Texas--I couldn't even see my hood. Semis were everywhere, and I drifted too far left trying to avoid being hit and ran off the road into the median and hit a guardrail. Well, the car was totalled, I was virtually unscathed thanks to the airbags and the well-made car. Soooo, almost everything I read about J30s is good and people love driving and riding in the car. Now I am looking again.

I was reading somewhere on this site, but not the forums, a number of posts by people who basically loved their J30s as I do/did, and several people mentioned problems with the sunroof and they seem to have just given up on it and kept enjoying their car. I had the same problem, and enjoyed it almost as much without a functioning sunroof.
