    Where is this limit switch at and is it something I myself can fix? Or something that I need someone else to look at?

I also have a G35 05. This is not an error. The REV light is within a circle, this is a gauge. This gauge also has an amber light in it which blinks or stays on solid based on settings you control. This can be controled with your trip selector button. This button has multiple functions, as you press it, your trip A counter will show, then your trip B counter, then your REV light indicatior setting. this is where you set the RPM limit. If you wish to change the RPM limit to a higher or lower setting, press and hold the trip selector button until the display starts blinking. Then press multible times until you get to the RPM's your looking for. Now when you approch the RPM's selected, the light will start blinking and once your reach them, the light will stay on solid.

    God bless the internet! I can't tell you how much time $$$ this post saved me! I had a problem with my '05 G35 when I bought it 5 months ago. It was the throttle body and it did have to be replaced. Today the REV indicator started showing the same symptoms as before. Long story short, I took it in to my mechanic who took checked it out on the computer and he could find nothing wrong with the car but suggested that I take it in to the Infiniti dealer to charge me $150 for a diagnostic that might tell me what the problem was.

    I Googled the problem and found this post - light bulb time! I got gas yesterday and reset the A and B meter readings. Something else (another value) popped up as well - no clue on my part. Obviously, I had set the REV limit to 3000 rpm or somewhere close to that. I'm off to reset it to the stock 7000. My undying gratitude to "dontbns" - you're no apprentice to me!

    Thank you so much for your explanation. It has saved me a lot of headache and money.
    I did change my A and B trip meters on the dash , and some numbers did show up, but I was ignorant of their significance. After this my rev light now blinks or show solid red lights, which was not happening, and I did not understand. With your explanation, my problem is solved. Thanks and thanks again.

I have manual G35 05, REV is not reverse light, Rev light just tells you when you have to shift. It is design for protect the engine from over revving. So You do not need to go to the dealer for fixing it.
Hope this is helpful.

Your Reverse limit sensor sounds like it has failed or is stuck.
Your vehicle is reporting to the ECM it is in REVERSE gear.
Chances are, your reverse lights are also staying on. Have a friend look when the REV light is indicated on the dash.
Replace the limit switch or re-adjust it. It is a magnetic switch that may have gotten misaligned from a bump.

    Some newer cars have the switch built into the tranny - however I believe yours is actually inside the car under the trim.

    In either case, servicing would be your best bet, because it must be in the correct alignment.... and the current one can be tested for correct operation.

How hard is it to replace front disc pads on a 2005 G35 coupe

If you have to ask, you are going to get in over your head. G35 coupe has brembo racing brakes from the factory. The pads are like 200 bucks and the rotors have to be turned each time you put new pads on them. Believe me, you don't want to have to replace a pair of rotors at 500 dollars a piece. Also the pads have built in sensors that will cause the brake mil light on the dash to light up when the pads wear down to a certain point. So I wouldn't tackle that myself. Its expensive, but that's part of owning an Infiniti.
