#219 of 599 Climate Control Problems
Jun 17, 2005 (11:11 am)
The other day is started my 2002 I35 and the cliamte control unit registered -169 degrees, the a/c was on full and none of the buttons worked to adjust it or turn it off. Has anybody had a similar problem?
My dealer has told me they need to replace the whole dashboard unit at a cost of over $800!!! I'm pretty ticked off cause the car is under the warranty in Time but only over few thousand in miles over and I am a loyal Nissan owner (over 7 cars). They tried to get me under the Goodwill Program but I was denied. I have my car "maintained" at the dealership every 5,000 miles and get replaced whatever they tell me needs replacing at the time. I DON'T sign on for the "Scheduled MaintenceProgram" casue I see no need to spend over $300 for them to fill my washer fluid, check my cruise control, check my tire pressure, check the parking brake etc.
Can anyone help me with the diagnoisis and any chance of raising the issue further at Infiniti to get results?

hmmmmm... Being a owner of a newer I35, I don't think I'd know much about this topic.
Try taking it to a different dealer to see if they think it has a different problem.
Can some of the more "senior" I35 owners help out here?
#221 of 599 Infiniti I35 Remote Keyless Entry Problem
Jul 02, 2005 (5:45 pm)
I own a 2002 I35 and somehow the Remote Keyless Entry mode switched to "Normal" - no horn chirp or hazards. I've gone through the steps to switch from "Normal" to "Hazard and Horn Chirp" and even though the system responds as if it executed a switch, it does not remain in the "Hazard and Horn Chirp" mode. Is there a reset? Any suggestions?

Have you checked the battery in your key fob?I would check the simple things first before looking for serious/expensive issues. Good luck.
#223 of 599 2002 I35 trip mode question
Aug 07, 2005 (9:06 pm)
Hi, I recently purchased a 2002 I35. I love my car so far with the exception that I do not have a owners manual. I was wondering about the trip features when I click on the mode button on the steering wheel. One is dte, mpg, mph and the last one is like a clock. I guess the dte is drive til empty, the other is how many miles per gallon, but I do not understand the mpg because it doesnt match how fast I am driving and I don't understand the "clock" read out either. Is that the number of hours the car has been driven? Any help any of you could give would be greatly appreciated!!

oops, I don't understand the MPH because it doesn't match the miles per hour that I am driving...sorry

The MPH is a mesure of the average speed you're driving since the last time you reset it.
If you don't have an owner's manual, an Infiniti dealer can order one for you or you can bid on eBay if there is one up for sale.
#226 of 599 The clock feature
Aug 08, 2005 (7:48 pm)
measures how long you have driven since the last time it was reset. To reset those numbers, just go to the one you want to reset, and hold the TRIP button.

The MPH (miles per hour) gives you the average speed (including time stopped and accelerating/decelerating) between resets (hold the mode button down to reset any of the items on the the computer). It won't "match" your speed because of the fluctuations during driving and the whole accelerating/decelerating aspect.
MPG (miles per gallon) works the same way, also averaging during stops, etc.
The clock is so you can time your trips, it shows the number of hours the car has been driven since it was reset. I set mine for road trips.
Distance to Empty is DTE and it will count down your miles to be driven until you have to push your way to a gas station. It actually stops at 25 miles and then just flashes at you no matter what you have the dash set to view. So if it is flashing, get gas. If the fuel "idiot light" comes on, lace up your sneakers.
#228 of 599 power seat wont work
Sep 06, 2005 (6:38 pm)
i have a 2000 I 30 which has been fairly trouble free till now.
recently the drivers power seat stopped moving backward and forward. the up and down controls still work.
i found on the internet that there is a technical service bulletin for this problem, that the power seat motor needs to be replaced. this is estimated to cost $700 +tax.
as the vehicle is out of warranty, i will have to pay.
my question is this: as this is a problem that they apparently know about that occurs in only 2 model years of f this vehicle, what are my chances of getting infiniti to pay for this repair.
