Typically on this model along with Q45's there is a built in sensor system. The factory pads come with a sensor, so when the pads are installed there is a wired plug that must be connected to the sensor mounted on the behind the rotor. This was designed to give you a visual warning that the brake pads needed replaced. However since most aftermarket pads for this vehicle do not come with sensors, the connector is left unplugged and the circuit is open causing the light to stay on. Another thing is to check the brake fluid level. Often times as the pads wear the fluid level goes down a little. Once it reaches a certian point it will cause the light to come on as well.

1997 infiniti J30 belt is squealing

I would suggest you check the idler pully that tensions the belt that runs the AC compressor. It is very common for the bearing in those to go bad. Beyond that, inspect and correct tension on the other two belts. Verify that both the alternator and water pump turn freely prior to re-installing the belts. NOTE: the are some older Nissan cars that have that same idler pully and the price will be far less dear than what Infiniti will charge you for it.

Check light is on constant on the dash. 1997 Infiniti J30

Take it in and get the "code read". It is on for a reason, and will not go off til the problem is fixed and the code cleared out.

My abs relay motor continously runs even with the car off, and killing my battery. 95 j30 infiniti

For a short term fix unplug the ABS relay. Your ABS light will stay on, and you won't have Anti lock breaks but you will be able to start your car which is always nice.
If you actually want ABS they try replacing the ABS relay, this will probably do the trick

Infiniti j30 interchangable parts

It depends on what parts you're thinking of. Some will carry over between years, and some may not. Minor restyling on the exterior and lighting may present some difficulty, and the 96 is an OBD2-emissions controlled engine, so its ECU, engine bay harness, and many sensors may not work on the earlier car (which is the much less-stringent OBD1 emissions control).

Exchanging infiniti j30 parts

I've only had experience with struts, running lights, trunk gaskets and various under-hood brackets; so far everything has been interchangeable. It may not look EXACTLY the same, but it fits. Hope it helps!

Engine light on Infiniti J30

Could be....I would first very simply check the gas cap. A loose or cracked gas cap could cause an O2 (oxygen) sensor to react and light up your "check engine" light. if the cap is indeed tight it may be an actual faulty sensor, in which case I would have your ODB plug under the steering wheel read by the infiniti dealer. Devoe infiniti is great here in Naples, FL!
Hope this helps,
