I had the exact same symptoms, and the dealer recommended the same parts to be replaced as affected by an earlier recall: recall id# 03v455000 - engine and engine cooling recall date: Nov 17, 2003 model affected: Infiniti G35 summary: on certain passenger vehicles, the circuit board for the crank position sensor or cam position sensor may have an improper solder joint due to solder deformation caused by heat stress accelerated by the existence of flux residue during the soldering process. Consequence: this could cause the "service engine soon" warning light to come on, create a no start condition, cause reduced engine power, or cause the engine to stop running without warning during vehicle operation, which could result in a crash. Remedy: dealers will replace the crank position sensors. Camshaft position sensor(s), and in some cases, the variable timing control sensor(s). Vehicles involved in a previous recall campaign, 01v357, are also included in this new campaign. The replacement sensors used in that campaign are also affected. Owner notification began on December 22, 2003. Owners should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261 or Infiniti at 1-800-662-6200. Potential units affected: 630000.

Failure Date: 04/22/2010

There is an apparent known defect in the 2003 Infiniti G35 models. The radio and climate control will apparently lose all indicators, as if there is no power, but will continue to function, staying frozen on at their last settings. The radio volume or channels cannot be changed and the air conditioning/heater,etc. Are stuck on their last settings and cannot be changed without turning the car off. This is caused by a defective control board behind the dash. Infiniti/Nissan is aware of the problem, and has issued a voluntary service campaign (# itb03-007b) to repair the 26,300 vehicles listed by VIN # on the service bulletin. This is a hazard , as in the winter, the front or rear defrosters cannot be turned on, or the air conditioning turned off, causing a hazardous driving condition. Infiniti says my 2003 VIN # does not fall into the bulletin parameters, (VIN # is higher), and they will not cover the repairs, even though it is the same problem. Infiniti states the cost to repair. . . . . . . . . $2600. 00. It is apparent that the bulletin did not go far enough to cover this defect on a larger quantity of vehicles than Infiniti wants to admit.

Failure Date: 11/15/2009

Infiniti issued a notification that the radiator fan motor may become inoperable, which may cause the engine coolant temperature to rise. In this case the engine protection logic will limit the vehicle speed to prevent any damage to the engine. I contend that this is a safety issue. Should this failure occur, the car may be required to be driven many miles in traffic at a reduced speed. This in itself is a safety issue.

Failure Date: 07/28/2009

Owned a 2003 Infiniti i35. It began to stall while running, at interstate speeds, street speeds, at stop lights. Mechanic thought it was the battery but problems continued. We sold vehicle due to issues and needing reliable vehicle. Two months after selling it, our other 2003 Infiniti, a G35 coupe, began having the same issues. Took to Infiniti dealer and they stated the error was p0340 and cam shaft sensor needed to be replaced, $600. I did research and found there was a recall but was told by dealer my VIN did not fit within recall numbers. In a short amount of research on web, I found probably 10-15 other owners of G35 coupes that have this issue and Infiniti is saying, sorry, but your VIN is not included in recall. I called infiiniti, they stated that exactly and there was no remedy other than paying for repair ourselves. It is a scary, dangerous defect that obviously was not corrected, or another issues arose, with the recall. A G35 coupe is a small, low-riding car, and I have a child in the back. If you are going at interstate speed with a semi on your tail and your car stalls, your child in the back, and possibly yourself, would not survive this crash. Infiniti said, yes, they did have similar complaints, but still would not remedy. I asked if a person has to die before they admit there is a defect that needs to be fixed. Unfortunately we no longer have the i35 to prove that had the same issue. We are getting the G35 repaired before someone gets killed but I am furious that this is not a covered repair by Infiniti. I will try to retain the part to the G35.

Vehicle would randomly stall out at 50 mph+ and control of power steering would be lost (battery light & vdc light would come on dash), rendering the vehicle a dangerously fast moving lead sled. Power to the vehicle would resume after a few moments. Many trips to the dealership about this potentially deadly problem yielded no explanation or fix for the problem. After conducting my own research on the internet, it was finally determined to be caused by a malfunctioning crank shaft sensor. The sensor would get too hot and shut down, causing the loss of power to the vehicle. After a few seconds of cooling, power would resume. Apparently a tse bulletin was issued for this problem, but it did not include the VIN for my car since it was produced later in the model year. The sensor (a $40 cost part!) was replaced free of charge at the dealership only after putting up a fight. Infiniti/Nissan needs to re-evaluate the scope of affected vehicles involved in this potentially deadly issue or be held responsible should someone die when their car stalls out at 65mph.

1) called the dealership and was told there is a technical bulletin on how to fix the problem but it wasn't a recall and will cost approx. $800 due to a malfunctioning of a circuit board. 2) the climate control and radio are inoperable about every other time we start the car. I read current recalls for this exact problem for the sedan and not the coupe. I just don't understand that. I know there are other's with the same issue. Hope this become a recall soon.

Hole found in the ac condenser (just behind front bumper) causing ac failure/loss of freon with approx 1700 mi on car. Given the grillwork and under side molding it is hard to belive dealer explanation that rock caused event. Replacement cost me $700.
