#334 of 457 2008 Infinity G35 start up problem, anyone?
Jul 01, 2011 (8:46 am)
I purchased new G35 in 2008 from dealer in monrovia, CA.
After year and few month later, the engine won't start up randomly for 3-4 time per week. I believed it happens when I park/turn off the engine for 10-20 min then restart.
After I found this, I brought it to the dealership in Cerritos and they said it might be a battery problem and I changed but no lucks.
I visited few more times to them and tried to find out, but they saying start up is working just fine. It's very frustrated that I brought it back and found this problem again and again.
I believe that they may not seeing this problem by their inspection device or, their tech didn't enoughly tried up many times to gain the data that how many times actually turn off. However, I am still struggling with this start up problem since now.

I started having this exact issue on my 2003 G35 sedan. It was very intermittent and it occurs now almost immediately after I start the car. A/C resets to 71 degrees and blasts the fan. All of the control panel buttons are disabled and I cannot adjust a/c, defroster, radio, cd.
The fact that I can't turn on the defroster is scarey. What's worse is that Infiniti doesn't care that so many complaints have come to them about this. Yes, I am another one on the "sorry, your VIN is not on our list!"
It's a crime!
I have submited my complaint to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Supposedly, they decide what VIN #'s get recalled.
Clearly, someone must be getting paid off.
Anyway, perhaps if everyone submits their complaint to NHTSA, they will "wake up"!

Nothing from NHTSA yet. I seriously doubt they will do anything until someone gets killed as a result of this problem.
#338 of 457 03 G35 COUPE A/C BLASTS NO RADIO
Jul 20, 2011 (7:41 am)
Having this issue for a few months now. You turn on the car, the AC is on FULL BLAST ALL THE TIME< all the controls are blacked out, no way to control them, and radio will not work. I have submitted complaint with Highway Safety, also Called Infiniti Consumer Affairs 800-662-6200 and spoke to "Kim" who stated she could not find ANYTHING in the system with regard to this year model and issue, which I find impossible to believe because of all of you posting with regard to the exact SAME issue. and somehow the only recall she could find was about an airbag light. I was told to go to the dealer and pay for the diagnostic, then call cons. affairs back and they would "see what they could do" then. This is some serious BS!!!! Someone before posted that there was a service campaign on this issue but Infiniti could find "no record of such a thing" We need to start a petition or something, strength in numbers. Infiniti needs to know this should not be our financial burden to bear, we have bought their "luxury vehicle" and now are being treated like moped oweners. this is unacceptable considering the money we spend to drive their brand. This is also a major safety issue.

That's silly of them to pretend they've never heard of it. If you read through this discussion, you'll see that others have had the exact same problem, as you mentioned.
I think there's a solution posted here somewhere... I believe it had to do with replacing the audio unit.

would this radio issue completley drain the battery? if so would a drained battery cause the ignition to not turn at all?? please help!
#341 of 457 G35 Same Problem!

My 2003 G35 has the same problem, has anyone found a solution aside from installing one of those 200$ after market face plates that split your cd player from the heat controls?? Okay so here is how this progressed for me.
1. CD player started skipping bad and heating up all the discs in the changer.
2. CD player stopped ejecting discs
3. CD player froze completely, won't even eject. Get display CDERROR F0
4. Switched to an ipod through the cassette player, at this point the display was still working and the radio, heat, and cassette buttons all worked.
5.Display shut off completely, only steering wheel controls worked, but i could tell the power supplied to the player was cutting out for large periods of time randomly while driving at which point the speakers just gave out a static feedback. AC stuck on full blast at 70 degrees.
6. AC shut off, but the cassette is now stuck, nothing will play on the unit, and none of the controls are working. Im quite certain at this point the face plate is dead.
I just want to know if anyone has isolated the problem to being the unit itself or the face plate? Because the volume controls on my steering wheel worked much longer than the display did, and i know that its not anything in the heater/ac. I really think the problem lies in the temperatures from the 2 vents, the engine, and from the 6 disc changer that is in-dash being so close to the face plate controls.
I need to find someone with a g35 that has a still working bose system so i can swap the face plates and see if it magically works Idk that anyone is gonna want to risk the potential damage to their unit though. I'll update if i figure out a solution to this problem, infiniti doesnt give a **** about our models because the newest models dont use that bose unit. Seriously when its humid out i can't defrost the damn windows as they fog.. rain is scary!

if you have read from the postings here there is no other solution.. if you swap faces with another that is working properly it will work though i dont believe your cd player will become unstuck.. thats why the aftermarket works its a new faceplate..(independent).. your solutions - 1 remove and have your unit fixed (might break again) 2. get aftermarket faceplate permanent fix to problem and buy a new radio.. 3 get a new unit from infinti (most expensive option and does not always fix the problem) good luck
