#341 of 438 G35 Same Problem!
Aug 18, 2011 (5:48 pm)
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

Just curious if you found out any further information about this? Along with everyone else, I have been having the AC/radio issue and have now started experiencing battery issues. My battery just went completely out and I am about to have to replace the battery in order to get my car to start. Do you know if this this related to the AC and radio being blacked out?

The same thing that happened to norbert444 happened to my 04 G35x today. The speedometer, odometer, engine temp gauge and turn signals stopped working. The AT indicator and the tire indicator turned on.
After restarting the car twice, everything went back to normal and stayed normal all day today.
Anyone else have such a problem?
Any ideas what the problem is? My SES light has been on for several weeks also.
#346 of 438 Speedometer odometer stopped working
Jul 29, 2011 (11:59 am)
Today, my speedometer, odometer, temp gauge and turn signals and possibly other gauges stopped working. The AT and tire indicators came on. The SES light, which had been on for a couple of weeks, turned off.
After restarting it a couple of times, everything went back to normal The SES light came back on.
Any ideas or similar experiences? It is a 2004 G35x.
Another gentleman, norbert444, posted an identical post a couple of years ago with the same results but there were no posts diagnosing the problem.

#348 of 438 03 Infinity G35 Audio Circuit Board Issue
Aug 08, 2011 (4:59 pm)
I have a 03 G35 sedan that had the same issue (audio console not responding and the ac blasting at full force at a fixed temperature). After several months of talking to nissan consumer affairs division i finally opened a case with BBB. Response from BBB was that since the car was out of warranty (it had approx 60k miles), they cant do much but would still forward it to Nissan.
A week later, i got a call from Nissan asking me to take it to a dealership saying that it would be repaired completely at no charge to me. I got this done a few months back.
Hope this helps out a lot of you out there with the same issue.

I've been having the A/C and radio problem intermittently for a few weeks now. When the controls go out, it also knocks out my Nav system. I have also noticed that my interior lights - on roof near switch for the sunroof - also do not work. Is this related to the same electrical issue?
I have not had problems with my speedometer, but is this a natural progression for the problem?
I have read about a few solutions to this. I am in Toronto Canada. Does anyone know who can fix this is Toronto for a reasonable cost?
