Has anyone with this problem had their car fixed anywhere in MA or RI?
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!
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?
I just don't know exactly how to hide the wires from where I place the radar detector and run them down to the fuse box underneath the drivers side. So I want to pull up the dashboard but I don't know how.
Can anyone direct me where I can read on what and where the screws are to pullup the dashboard, hook the wires in properly then replace the dashboard and hide the wires???
Thanks,--I'm sure this is stupid question as most people have done this hundreds of times.
I think I have same issue for about 1.5 months now. The central panel lights go out. radio can only be controlled from the wheel. And auto air con goes on and i can't use the buttons to change it. Then it randomly goes back to normal, etc.
Car is a 2003 G35 (purchased summer 2002) so warranty is out so i paid for radio replacement as they said it was radio. Then paid for circuit board as they said both must be damaged.
But it's still happening (and now the cd player won't work although it did before). They said the CD issue they maybe put in a bad cd deck so they will change that, but I am going to call tomorrow and mention this recall. I have to bring it in for a full day look over. Take wires out and try and find problem since it's still happening with a new circuit board.
based on what I see here, I will try and fight that they knew there may be a problem with circuit board and they never did anything but i had to pay for it. Wife will write a letter to Nissan/Infiniti Canada and Japan if needed (maybe they will do something???) if they don't refund us, etc.
They seem pretty retarded that they can't figure out what is wrong...
Does anyone have an idea what it may be if the circuit board replacement didn't work for my car?
Are you having any problems with your Radio/CD player? If you are it might be the cause. Also you need to check with an Infiniti dealer give him the info on the inside of the front driver door and he can let you know if the electrical board has been replaced in that car, sort of a recall for 2003's. If the Radio/CD player is not working correctly, I will have to look it up but there is someone in CA that refurbishes the Bose CD/Radio player/changer, and he charges 350.00 and if you send him yours he gives you 150.00 back.
will post the address
Hope this helps
I live in Fort Worth and am having the same exact problem with my '03 G35. Which dealership did you contact? Sewell, Grubbs? We are in the same exact boat...love my car but don't want to spend the $1,200.
I checked into an aftermarket dash console/finisher and spoke with the service manager at Infinity and he said that an aftermarket finisher/radio ABSOLUTELY would NOT work in Infinity autos. He said I would be wasting my money. We're still having the same intermittent problems. I'm hoping Intinity still step up to the plate and make a recall for these vehicles.
I'm wondering if that individual gave it try.... I'm going to give Best Buy a call just to get their opinion.
controls are dead, stereo does not power up, no functions work? This is not an "Audio Finisher" problem like the dealer$hip may lead you to believe. This is a stereo problem! Repair rate will range $185-295. When the dealership replaces the Audio Finisher, they also replace the stereo.
I am assuming from reading about this, that the audio is draining the battery. I will disconnect it while I am home till i can figure out what is going on. Would removing the fuse for the audio help?
Both my spouse and I are unemployed and I really have to find the most economical fix for this.
My dealer here in Atlanta says that 95% of the time the replacement of the bose audio fixes this problem.

I called the dealer and was told to come in for a $200 diagnostics because there is no speedometer cable and all those controls in G35 are electronic.
Please help. Thanks.
The first quote I got from this dealer was 1200. Yesterday it was 550? I called and asked about the recall and there were no outstanding on my car and it was not part of the original recall for this. But knowing I had researched the issue the quote was 650 less than before all my research.
