#72 of 685 My 2000 I30
Oct 08, 2005 (8:10 pm)
I bought an I30T Wednesday before last. The seller (out of state) failed to tell me
the abs light was on and "just needs to be reset at the dealer" The brakes work fine and won't lock up so I guess he was telling the truth.
The sunroof does not open, I have ordered a switch to see if that is it. (i'm hoping it's not the motor)
The engine light came on 2 days after I bought it, code 430, bank 2 catalytic converter. Muffler shop said 600-900 bucks.
Finally, the climate control cools until 84, then when you turn it on 85 your roasting!
I love the car, it looks sweat, but my 95 maxima I've owned for 3 yrs was never
this much of a pain. If anyone can help me I'd be thankful. I spent almost all my
savings thinking I was buying a nice car and now I'm stuck until I can sell my 95'.
#73 of 685 99 I30 Brake Lights Out
Oct 19, 2005 (6:35 pm)
I recently purchased a used 1999 I30 w/over 140,000 miles. I was informed, a couple mornings ago, that I had no brake lights. I checked the bulbs and fuses and all were ok. All other lights seem to be working fine except the light in the back window, which is also out now. Looked into the cost of a brake lamp switch, less than $10. Is there anything else I should check or look at before replacing this switch? Is this a common problem? How do you check/replace the light in the back window? Any other suggestions?

Did you go to an infiniti dealership? It seems as though my car is having the same problem, but the dealer has not heard of this extended warranty.
#75 of 685 Mileage??
Oct 23, 2005 (3:08 pm)
I purchase a used 2000 I30 with 31000 miles on it.
All runs well except for 2 things.
1. I get a little road noise rumble which I attribute to the Goodyear Eagles which was on the car at time of purchase.
2. I get ~ 19 to 20 mpg. I would think I should get low 20 mpg at least.
I do 75% highway
Just wondering what other people are getting on their I30

I have scheduled appt w/dealer for next week, but want some feedback about similar problems so I won't get taken to the mat w/$2k bill! What is this about Nissan extending warranty on this problem? Thanks...a lot.

Sort of like a bb in a tin can shaking back or forth or that same noise you might hear when you use cheap gas. I have no idea what it is. For some reason when i take to mechanics they never hear get to hear the noise of if they do they tell me they dont know what it is and that why im here. One of them recommended i come this site and talk about it. I love the car so much but that noise makes want to sell i soooo bad. Someone help me please.

I just picked up my 2000 I30 (64k) from the Infiniti dealer today. Last week I lost power driving and the service engine light came on. The dealer said my spark plug engine coil went bad. He quoted me about $500 to change one and $1000 for all six. I went ahead and had all six changed. I asked about any extended warranty for this problem and the dealer said there were none.
bobbee53 - do you have any more info on that extended warranty...what's the dealership name?

I have the same problem in my 00 I30 (64k). I asked the dealer about it and he asked what type of gas I was using. I confessed to using non-premium since gas prices went sky high. He told me to switch back to the premium and that should solve it. I'll switch back and see what happens. The noise is loudest when climbing hills.

My 2000 I30 has a problem with the "service engine soon" lilight asell. After driving over 100 miles on a highway stretch,the light comes on. This has happened on the last couple of long road trips that I've taken. I read on line that if you disconnect the battery for 24 hrs. minimum, this resets the computer, and the light will go out. I tried it and it worked both times. The light hasn't come back on but probably will during the next long road trip. I've got apapproximately 40,000 miles on the car. So, it's probably a sensor. Do you know if this is covered under the wawarrantee Other than that problem, we have loved the car and would like to hold on to it another few years.
Good luck. Try the method of disconnecting the battery. It might save you a whole lot of money.
#81 of 685 1996 Infiniti I30 hesitates and engine dies
Nov 10, 2005 (5:58 am)
I have 119000 miles on my Infiniti I30. The problem I have is the car engine completely dies at lower speed or when I stop in traffic or light. When it dies, I get Check Engine light, Oil Lamp light, Battery light and Break light illuminates on dashboard. If I try to restart right away, the engine start and dies immediately. Usually I have to wait for around 30 seconds or so before I restart. This problem appears mostly in cold weather. Entire spring/summer was uneventful. Another problem I have noticed lately is while driving locally if I am slowing down behind a car and then slowly try to pick up again, it won't accelerate-the engine stays at around 300-400 rpm and when I press the gas paddle little harder it revs to around 2500 rpm and starts fine-there is a jerk. The dealer is not able to find the problem, but I have left it with him to troubleshoot anyway.
Any idea why this could be happening? Any similar experience in either Maximas or Infiniti and what you had to do to fix it?
