2004 infiniti g35 idling low

My car is idling low. It started out at 1,000 rpm and my dad drove it to the store less than a mile from my house and it dropped to 200 rpm. We have unplugged the battery as suggested by the Infiniti forum, next to reset the throttle body. Can you help??

    Ok My dad hooked the battery back up. He drove it to the store, put gas in it, He again got it to 1,000, drove it up the street, came back and let it sit for about 20 minutes, it dropped to 200 rpm again. Didn't shut off again while idling in the driveway. My cousin hooked it to one of those code readers before this , when it shut off at the red light & no codes come back. I don't understand what is going on. He said it was just idling low. I am disabled and don't have the $ to take it to let a mechanic do anything that my dad could do for me. Any suggestions. Please!! This is my only transportation to the Doctor. I'm a female and have no knowledge of anything to do w/ cars. Any suggestions I would greatly appreciate!! Thanks!!!

Your idle air control valve sounds like it is failing. This is basically a solenoid that actuates at idle to allow air for proper combustion and maintain idle.

SOURCE: I have a 2004 infiniti sedan g35... the pass side seat does not

i just fixed this problem - the switch is bad - take out the seat - 4 bolts on the bottom 4 corners and then remove the whole switch - either buy a new one around $200 or unsauter the switch and clean it but be careful as there are a lot of parts inside that can fall out. i cleaned mine and it works fine beats spending the money.

SOURCE: Infiniti G35 speakers don't work

03 and 04 G35 vehicles had a Technical Service Bulletin issued regarding the audio circuit board. No sound was one of the symptoms of a faulty circuit board. There was a design flaw with the boards on the early model G35's that was corrected in 05.The audio units on those cars consisted of three pieces, the radio itself, which is just a silver box, a circuit board that attaches to the front of the radio and then the outer display. I would suggest contacting a dealership service dept. with your VIN number in hand, and ask if the circuit board has been replaced. Even if it has, It will still more than likely be the problem. It's either that or the radio

SOURCE: how much would it cost to replace the throttle

1st gen throttle body they rarely fail, I recommend to remove and clean the unit first before replacing one, used Valvoline throttle body cleaner only; when you have the unit out, take your time and clean it slowly soak it completely with the solvent. refurbish run you 90-100 bucks from, another place to look is junk yard, don't buy new. 30 minute job cleaning or replacing the unit. If it serve my memories correctly, 350z use the same throttle body as G35 up to 07'. hope that help some

SOURCE: 2004 infiniti g35 sports coupe - passenger window

Typical G35 problem.

I believe my coupe had both of it's regulators replaced by the previous owner before I bought it.

They aren't cheap, but are pretty easy to swap yourself. Give Tony at Riverside Infiniti a call. He has some great prices (personal friend of mine).

Or check (Infiniti of Scottsdale).

Smoke on start? Could be a valve problem where all your oil is in the bottom at start? Belts are squeaking too? Maybe a tensioner went bad?

On my 2004 Infiniti G35 Coupe, the low tire pressure light come on after a few miles. The actual tire pressures are good.

The 5th tire is your spare. There is recorded case of the 5th (spare tire) is at low pressure.

Check your spare tire air pressure. Keep it between 33-36psi.
