#56 of 438 2003 G35 Electrical Problem Resolution?
Jan 14, 2009 (9:36 pm)
I have read all of these messages and I would love to hear from someone who has had a resolution to the climate control/audio problem. I live in Atlanta and the dealer I have used for service is Infinity of Gwinnett. I bought this car 3 years ago from them.I have really enjoyed owning this car so far - not one speck of trouble.
I called Infinity of Gwinnett and explained my problem and was told that in 95 percent of these cases replacing the stereo fixes the problem. If that does not do it the the dash module needs replacing also. But they said start with the stereo.
Their quotes were $800 to replace the Bose and 1300.00 for the module!
I can't see how fixing the sound system will restore the other dash functions??
I am not sure where to start? I have been laid off - so I have not been having to drive very much- but what if I need to defrost/defog my windshield? The ac is set at 67 degrees on auto and not on full blast like some I read about.
Please reply with some success stories!

We ended up having the ignition switch replaced about two week ago at a cost of $170 at KAM's in Acworth. We haven't had a problem since, but the problem was intermittent, so time will tell. Our problem was that the dash lights, ac control panel and stereo would go black and not work. We could giggle the ignition and it would come back. The repair shop said they have replaced several ignition switches in the Infinity G35 and thought that would take care of the problem. Now we have a different problem. The brake and slip lights stay on. We haven't investigated that problem yet -- just started yesterday.

The best way to solve this problem is putting an after market radio, kit cost about $160 plus the radio, cabling and installation. I bought a Infinity G35 2003 the dealer put about two factory radios on it and they will work for a day and break AGAIN the dealer where i bought the car did the same thing to all their Infinities G35s problem solved!!!!!!! it cost the dealer $305 the bough a cheap radio which ill change later.

Do you know where to purchase the kit? I too have the same problem - some days the lights are on and i can control the air,radio, and heat and some days there is nothing lit up.

I had the same problem with my 2003 G35 and it was the ignition switch at a cost of about $170. Have you tried giggling the key in the switch to see if the lights, etc. come back on?
#61 of 438 Lights on stearing wheel out!

Can anyone tell me why my lights are out on my stearing wheel. All the other dashboard light work fine. I looked in the fuse box and could not find any blown fuses. I hate to bring in in to the dealership to get ripped off. HELP ANYONE!

The disc problem on the G35s is quite common. Many or all will eventually fail. I purchased my 04 G35 Coupe new and after reading all the problems with the CD changer, power window motors and window actuators, decided to take out an extended factory 4yr warranty. I have not replaced my CD changer yet, but I'm ready when it decides to die.

2003 G35 Sedan: My radio, Air and all controls on my audio panel do no turn on. The air is working, but stuck at 65. I just came from the Fresno Dealer. They said it would be $129 to check out, but she service manager said she already knew what it was. She said it is a circuit board behind the audio unit. She said it would cost $1200 to replace. I asked if it was so common, why isn't it recalled? She shrugged and said she didn't know. How do we create a recall? $1200 is allot of dough for an obvious defect!

There is a recall, but only for certain serial numbers. Mine was not included in the recall.

My problem is the same as yours....I was working off and on for a month and the off for the last few weeks. I replaced the battery (it was due- still had original battery) but it suddenly started working again. I was told the same thing by my dealer, 1200 to replace the audio unit, common problem in the 03 model. I have had mine since 05 so I don't know if it was part of recall or not. I have also read just because it was fixed from the recall, the same thing can happen again. I am going to explore having the audio replaced at an aftermarket audio shop. A few have had it fixed for must better prices. I have heard so many fixes for this. Ignition switches to steering controls... so frustrating. just waiting for mine to stop working again before I really have to fix it.
