2003 Infiniti G35 slip and VDC lights come on and off randomly
I inadvertently tried to start the car with a key from another car. The key went in but did not turn. I removed the key and noticed that it was wrong so put in the correct key. The car started and it runs fine however, now the BRAKE, SLIP and VDC OFF lights come on and off at random. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The first time this happenned to me I wondered as well. It also happenned during a coold snap. Turned out the VDC light on is a warning for the brake system when the pads need to be replaced. Had the brakes done and the light went off. Happenned several times. -2004 G35X
When ever you get these waring lights it means the computer control module has sensed a fault in the systems many parts or wiring, in order to begin the diagnostics to repair the fualt the system must be scanned for fault codes. this is the number 1 first thing that must bwe done.
Recently had the same issue one week ago. I had to replace the cam and crankshaft position sensors. Which were about $600 in repairs. You can always take your car to AutoZone and let them put it on diagnostic machine for free.
Sounds pretty simple. If your starter is not at fault. you may want to check the alternator. If the reason for the battery change originally was due to the battery dying then the alternator could be the culprit.
I would take the car to almost any auto parts store and ask them to check the ODB II computer for codes and to reset the "Check engine light". Get the code that they tell you and it should go a long way to pointing you in the right direction to fixing this problem. It might also be that when you pumped the brakes that you somehow set a code in the computer from the ABS system and now that you have the brakes pumped up and working correctly resetting the Check engine light might fix your problem.
Good luck! Write back with any code you get and I'll see if I can help you figure out what the problem might be.
