The fix involves installing a relay to bypass the electrical switch that operates the trunk remotely, and there's this:
"Prior to beginning repair, ensure that the customer understands that after the repair, they will be unable to open the trunk with the door mounted trunk switch or remote key fob when the transmission selector is in 'Drive'."
Incidentally, 614043 is NHTSA's number; Infiniti calls it ITB 00-048a. And it applies only to I30s through 1999, not to 2000 and after.
#1812 of 1851 Trunk Will Not Open

The trunk on my 1999 I30 will not open. I hear the usual popping sound when I depress the interior button as well as when I try to use the key directly on the trunk. Unfortunately, the trunk does not budge. I have never had a problem like this before and, short of going to the dealer, I would like to know what I can do to fix it. ??? Thanks in advance.
#1813 of 1851 Those with faulty O2 sensors - there's help
Jan 07, 2008 (9:31 am)
Just wanted to let you know you that don't have to shell out $300 to fix this ubiquitous problem with i30s. I got 2 sensors from Ebay (brand new BeckArnleys - $20 each). And had my mechanic install it for me for $120. He had to hard wire them in since the less expensive ones you get on Ebay don't come with the factory connectors. It is advisable to change them in pairs because once one goes bad, it is just a matter of time before the other does too. So, something that would have cost me $600 to change, cost only $160. Good riddance SES light!
#1814 of 1851 Used 2004 I 35

I recently purchased an 2004 I35 . It didn't come with any owner's manual. The dealer told me that there are heated seats front & back. Is that true?? How does one turn on the rear seats? Are they on the same switch as the front seats?? I do like the car very much. I up graded from a I 30t 2000 !

The rear heated seats are on the same panel as the power window switches for the rear seats.
If you look on both rear doors, you will see the power window switch, and then right above that there will be a switch for the heated rear seats.
In retrospect, I should have bought the Heated Front and Rear Seats (aka the Cold Weather Package) when I bought my I35... Would have gotten the heated steering wheel too...
#1816 of 1851 2002 I35 Bose CD Player Skips when it's cold or damp
Jan 17, 2008 (10:23 am)
I just don't get it! When I first turn on the car in the morning, my cd's skip (no matter which of the 6 I play). When it's raining, same thing, until the car warms up and it starts to skip less and less until it doesn't skip anymore. I was thinking maybe there is some condensation on the disk and the laser can't read it well, but even when I put a cd in that I got from the house, it still skips. I am not sure if the temperature has a role in the skipping but it sure is coincidental!
A mechanic at Infiniti has admitted to there being a problem with the factory bose stereos, and that they start to skip to the point where they won't even play AT ALL....people are constantly bringing their cars in to get the stereo fixed. If there is such an issue with these systems, why aren't they recalled?
Is anyone else having problems with their Bose player skipping?
Is there any solution to this Bose disaster?
I am very disappointed in Bose. I can't believe they would actually put their name on something like this and not offer to fix it. As much money as they charge for their systems, it should only be expected that they should work properly.
Ok thanks for letting me vent!!

Re: I have a 2003 I35 and experience the same problem. Anyone has any suggestions or input or solutions.

I let the player play for a little while and it FINALLY stops skipping once it's warmed up, but the frustration of that process is ridiculous. Maybe contacting Bose would help?
#1819 of 1851 2000 I35t Issues
Feb 01, 2008 (7:38 am)
I have a 2000 I35t that is currently having a sensor replaced at a local garage. They've told me that I'll have to take it to an Infiniti dealer to have the computer reset after the replacement, though. Anyone know anything about this?
Also, my driver side headlight (Xenon) is out but the bulb is still good. Any electrical system issues?
I noticed someone said something about a defective sunroof. Mine won't do the express open and won't close/seat on it's own. When the battery is disconnected and reconnected and everything is reset, it works correctly for a while. Anyone else had this issue?
Thanks for the help!

Thanks for your input. Please let me know if you find a permanent solution. I used a CD cleaner to clean the lens. It played a full CD without any problem but it is back to square one now. Your suggestion of calling BOSE or talking to a infinit dealer should help. Are these covered under warranty?
