Still driving my '04, and the driver door still locks itself. I quit taking the car to my local Infiniti dealer for any sort of service because they refused to address the lock problem unless they could replicate it -- and they weren't willing to open and close the door long enough see it happen.
Dealers apparently aren't sharing information about this issue among themselves, or with Infiniti, possibly because they don't think it's real. So everybody who has this problem is "the only one". It's a small problem, apparently affecting only a small percentage of owners, but it certainly affects my willingness to commit to another new car that they'd service.

Yes. Had to have the entire door lock mechanism replaced. Apparently there is a plastic gear that wore out in the lock. Can't just replace the gear. Have to replace entire mechanism. I had a buddy do it for $250. I'm sure it would be at least $500 at dealer.
Plastic gears seem to be the norm for Infiniti. My CD changer is also not working and was told it's the plastic gear in the changer. Between $300-600 to repair.

The new Infiniti G35 has an auto lock feature that engages when the car is starting to go forward.This is a good feature.
Can previous year(2008) models be programmed to do the same?
#25 of 26 Key-less Fob battery life
Jun 24, 2009 (12:17 pm)
I picked up my new 2008 G35xS back in October 2008. Its got 9K miles on it so far. Today when I got in the car, the "low battrey" warning light came on at the center display indicatinig its time to change key-fob battery. Is this normal after a short period of ownership?

yeb, that's normal. This key needs to emit the signal all the time. That's why it eats a lot of battery. You can get a pair of this batter at walmart for a bout $5.
