So does this sound like a head unit?
And does anyone know anyone in Philadelphia that fixes this HEAD UNIT THING?
I found a guy that can fix it for $150 if i take it out myself and drive it over(shop located about 1.5 hours away from me)
I did get my CD hanged now with cd's inside. Anybody knows how to get CD out and what is a good CD replacement?
Any ideas guys? plz help
Car overheats - do you mean inside the passenger compartment, or the engine?
With the engine running and the AC on, open the hood and see if the rad fans turn on when the temperature gauge starts to climb.
I have an Infiniti G35x sedan that has some starter problems. Press the brake as per usual and hit the starter switch and there is a whirrr but engine doesn't turn over. Do it a couple of times and the whirr seems to die, but still engine doesn't start.
Its not the battery as lights, radio, GPS are all good still. Any others with same issue? Could be alternator or starter switch? Suggestions?
Had the same problem a few times over the last 2 years on my 03 G35..
Believe it or not there is a quick fix....Can't believe know one has posted this???
There is a sensor or diode on the dash that fails..Air or heater goes on full blast and radio controls won't work !!!It can be reset be thumping on the right side of the dash at the side of the temperature gauge on the passenger side of the dash...This somehow jolts the radio and temp controls back into action.. It is a certainly bit medieval ...But it works...
You might have to find the right sweetspot to hit,,But trust me..It works....
Lasted about 6 months then happened again did the same thing and it is still working...No cost ?? and Infinity will not tell you about this>>
Cheers....Stuart [email protected]
You should try to find and fix the faulty connection.
I'm very close to buying a 08 G35x but all these posts about mother boards failing are making me a little scared.
But it does list some for the G35. I believe that Crutchfield has a similar tool.

One of the techs here has installed a CD/DVD/Radio/Nav double din head unit w/ 6 pair speakers, one sub, 2 amps and it's great.
But for the previously unknown to us "battery eater" mode which was either triggered by the install or was there already. It didn't produce a dead battery until we went into the dash ... customer is in Afghanistan and has never seen the car in person.
It's taken an effort from me to convince the shop owner and others here that whatever the problem, it did not come from our install. Cars don't act like this G35 '03 @ the battery(s) unless there's a collaterally tripped and/or preexisting issue.
As for our customer ... I hope this issue isn't a mark for electrical death. With the suspension and many other bolt-ons / mods it's becoming quite the investment.
I've only read one other place where this has happened, but no post were made if a solution was found.
Any suggestions besides the obvious. I do have some experience with cars/electrical. The car seems to have been involved in a front end collision, but never reported on Carfax. I just bought the car last week.
This is the place that fixed my G35 about 3 years ago. If you search backwards in the thread you can find my original posts. Highly professional -- I made an appt. and made a two hour drive to have it done -- very happy happy.
I have also read of a few companies in the U.S. that can ship a new radio unit for approx $300. How hard is it to remove the current unit and replace with new one?
Is it possible that the problem requires a different solution than replacing the radio. For example, could it simply be a loose connection? My radio/AC controls were working occasionally a few months ago but now are not working at all.
Finally, I have a problem with the NAV system that has been going on much longer than the radio/AC problem. It also was working intermittently, but now has not worked for sometime. I had always assumed this was just a loose cable since the NAV moves up and down each time you open and close it, but perhaps I am wrong. Anyone have any ideas?
I have the same problem with my G35 and I live in Toronto. Can you tell me where you had it repaired, approximately how much you paid and whether you would recommend the place?
Do you happen to have an address for XW Electronic Company? I would like to take my G35 there to get the audio unit fixed. Thank you very much in advance.
I no longer have the address. I suggest that you call the phone number I posted and ask for John.
