Question about 2004 Infiniti Q45

1 Answer

94 Q45 I had problems with the release for pk brake. I released the pk brake but the light stayed on and i smell something burning but nothing is leaking. It had been sitting for 1 month and i started it up then there were a few more months that past and now it won't start. we have tried to jump it but it will not hold a charge or even start when it's charging. it tries to start but then it loses the charge as soon as we disconnect the cables.

The battery is more than likely completely drained. Because those vehicles have so many electronic features, both mechanically and otherwise, they consume a lot of juice. If the car is going to be sitting for more than a month you are supposed to remove the long term storage fuse. It is located under the hood. Your owners manual will show you a picture of where it is. I would take the battery out, remove negative first then positive and have the battery tested. If the battery is completely drained it will not hold a charge either with the alternator or with cables. Just make sure you install the battery cables in the reverse order, Positive first then negative.

My svt's rear brakes never fully releases? You can


Try removing the drums and checking the mechanism. It could be that dust from the brakelinings is preventing free operation of the brake pads.
Clean out the drums and if the brake pads appear to be stuck a light thump with a hide mallet should release the sticking.

My 1991 Lincoln town car sat for awhile. Now when driving smell a burning electrical smell and when braking it pulls to the left. Any idea what the problem is?


You have a lot of rust on all your brake components

You will need to completely strip all 4 brakes & remove
all rust and lube necessary parts

Don't misunderstand my point here

You do not necessarily need new rotors or brake pads

You may want to however, replace the flexible rubber
brake hoses, as they may have collapsed inside and
your brakes do not release,thus the brake pad smell

Also you could have rusted and frozen caliper pistons

The rust,the flex hoses & possibly the calipers, are your
problems,and the cause of the bakes not releasing

Abs light stays on/strong smell


Check the E-Brake, make sure that the ebrake is not engaged and that it is fully disengaging. If that is not the problem, then there is something with the brake calipers or rotors that are not allowing your brakes to fully disengage
