You are in the Infiniti Q45
What is this discussion about?
Infiniti Q45, Sedan
Jul 02, 2005 (12:40 pm)
I am trying to decide among a new Q45, LS 430, and Audi A8. I am mainly interested in comfort and lack of noise, rather than performance. Also, by way of background, I have a 1994 Q45 which I like a lot, but I have had terrible experiences with one bad dealer and, more to the point, with Infiniti/Nissan USA. Is the latter any better than it used to be? I would appreciate any thoughts on either issue. Thank you.

Even though you aren't interested in "performance" per se, you'll want to peruse our Luxury Performance Sedans discussion. Those are exactly the sort of vehicles that are under discussion there. Have a look while you wait for responses here.

I have a '94 Q45a with electronic suspension. I bourght it used. From get go it never ran right, as far as the suspensiion goes. Every now and then the suspension goes down whilst driving; the the traction and sliip light comes on, and it's bumpy. How involve is it to change over to regular suspension.

I had a similar problem with my '94 Q about 4 months ago. (It has only about 48,000 miles on it). I had it serviced and it turns out the belt around the alternator was loose. So when I'm slowing down, idling for too long, starting from a stopped position, or restarting my engine after turning it off for an errand, the low battery charge light turns on and my engine stalls. So at low RPM's the battery isn't being charged adequately. Check it out.
#821 of 975 tail lights won't come on on my 92 Q45
Jul 19, 2005 (8:13 pm)
my dash and tail lights on my 1992 Q45 won't come on. The stop lights work fine but the tail light doesn't. I've done all I could in solving this problem but to no success. I've changed the whole tail light assembly and even put in new bulbs...still no success. I've also checked the tail light fuse for power...it does have power. I don't know what else to check or do. Has anyone had this sort of problem before? someone please help...I'm losing my mind!
While we're at it, my digital climate control display works but displays at will. I even replaced it with another one and still does the same...common problem? HELP anyone? THANKS!

The manual says that once you have replaced the bulbs, the ignition switch and the tail/stop light should be turned "ON", and the brake pedal depressed for approximately 1 second. This will cancel the warning light. If the warning light is not canceld then it will display each time you turn the ignition on. I hope this helps.

thanks Elvis4! this doesn't address the problem i'm having. It's the tail lights that won't work not a warning signal. When I turn the headlights on the tail lights don't come on as it supposed to. I need help solving this problem.
Thanks for your time though!
#825 of 975 94 Q45 drive train question - newbie seeks advice
Jul 25, 2005 (11:17 pm)
2 1/2 weeks after a $3100 service (comprehensive 30 K service, and fixing some minor electrical malfunctions) on my 1994 Q 45 (170,000 miles) as I was stopped in traffic, I heard a sudden clunk, then the car would not move. Tow truck driver (and rescuing guardian angel) told me the U joint, which he said holds up the drive train, had come undone from the car. He said there should have been 12 bolts holding it up; instead there were only two, and one fell out. The bolt that fell out had no obvious wear or tear on it. I've had the Q regularly serviced at the same Infiniti dealer for about 4 years; prior work was all done at another dealer near my former home. Has anything like this happened to any one else here? I'm irritated that this happened, and understand it could have caused a wreck if I'd been on the freeway : -- am I overreacting? or appropriately concerned? What should I do to make sure the rest of the car is ok -- especially since the same dealership has done all the work on it for 4 years? Currently the car is awaiting bolts (which are backordered) at another dealership than the one I've gone to for 4 years. All advice appreciated. Thanks!
