Question about 2004 Infiniti FX35

2 Answers

I HAVE A 2004 INIFINTI, WITH 52,000 MILES ON IT. I HAVE PURCHASED 2 BATTERIES FROM AUTOZONE IN THE LAST 2 YEARS. IF I DON'T DRIVE FOR 3 DAYS, CAR WILL NOT START. IS IT THE BATTERY? DO I NEED TO PURCHASE AN INFINITI BATTERY OR IS SOMETHING PULLING IT DOWN.. WHEN CAR WAS NEW AND ORIGINAL BATTERY IN IT, NO PROBLEM.. COULD GO TO AIRPORT AND LEAVE FOR 2 WKS AND WOULD START RIGHT UP.. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM??

Sounds like you have something pulling the battery down. Is the radio still factory? If not my first suspect is an after market radio. If all is still factory, no radio, no alarm system, no back seat chargers, dvd players. Your alternator may be the cause, alternators have diodes that can cause a "leak" or a small draw on the battery. If you have a volt/amp meter you may be able find this. If not take the car to auto parts store where they can remove the positive cable and read the amp pull, in between the battery post and the cable end. You will have a very small amount due to the radio clock. but if your reading is in the 1 - 3 amps that is too much and causing the batt. to go dead after 3 days. Disconnect the largest wire on the alt. and read the amps again, if it has gone down and reads normal, that is the alternator diodes leaking, and shes bad. Hope this fixya up.

Please list the Codes you have on those tickets. This will describe the area or even the part which is broken.

The Place which did the test should have given you the Codes. Try another place if the trouble light is on which will help verify the problem. Oreily and Advance will also test for free. Or try another Autozone.

Battery was out of 99 ford taurus for 2 month now cant get reading from obd told to drive car 4/5 days how many mile do i need to dive car to reset obd for emission test


It has nothing to do with Miles and EVERYTHING to do with Drive Cycles.. There are certain things that must be tested. Within the first 10 miles, generally speaking you are going to complete the Drive Cycle requirements for ALL the tests except for 2-3. The EVAP/ O2 normally the last ones to get cleared.

Your Vehicle is a 1999 which means that you can pass the I/M test with 2 lights "NOT READY". The EVAP is going to take longer than a few miles, you must fill up your car with fuel above the 3/4 mark and then it has to go below I believe it is 1/2.

But if there are 2 Not Ready's... it will pass

My 2004 deville shifts a little rough at different speeds.It seems to do it when the car is warm to hot.It does not leak.Would a transmission flush help the problem?It has 76000 miles.we bought it with...


You Change Trans & Power Steering Fluids every
30,000 miles on ALL Vehicles

I don't suggest flushing,some people do

If you want to chance having problems get
it flushed

You remove all the fluid it may just start to slip

You have to understand that fluid changes DO NOT FIX
A THING

The fluid removes heat & breaks down
That is why it is changed

I would assume you don't flush brake fluid every 2 years
Trans & Steering every 3 years,not over 30,000 miles
Spark Plugs at 60,000 miles

When you buy a used vehicle you lay it up for two weeks
& work on it,never drive it
All Preventative maintenance gets done,regardless
of what you were told about the vehicle

I changed the a/c filter and have been trying to reset the light which says a/c filter change required but it won't reset. Can't understand why because I press reset as soon as it comes up...


All those lights etc on the right side of your dash
are not tied to anything

You don't have to change anything
or do anything. Oil,Cabin Filter etc

THEY ARE JUST GADGETS

Status does cycle
You press Reset & hold

When it says to hold, you
quickly press & hold Reset again

You can just forget all that

Doesn't do anything

You don't sit in your car &
call it up with the status button
& watch it anyway.


Brake Fluid-every 2 years --Flush/All Vehicles
Spark Plugs -- every 3 years,not over 60,000 miles
Fuel Filter --every 3 years
Air Filter --every 3 years
Cabin Filter --every 3 years
Trans & Power Steering--3 years
not over 30,000 miles--EVER on any vehicle

My 2004 Lincoln ls has been acting up. First it was running rough so I changed coil on 4 and then 2 seven monthes later after which car ran great. Now on two occasions when triing to start alarm goes off...


I don't think going to AutoZone for codes is of much
value to anyone

Obviously your LS don't miss on 4 cyl or have 4 bad coils

You didn't need to replace any coils except the one that fails,
which is 1 or 2 a year on that car.

You most likely have one really bad coil that sets all kinds
of codes.

You can buy one new coil & walk it every couple days until
you get to the bad one or go to a repair shop with an oscilloscope
and the correct inductive coil adapter.

You need to use the correct OEM style plugs (NGK)
were the motorcraft mfg.

Check alternator output with a scope & make sure
the battery isn't more than 4 years old. Todays cars
are sensitive to voltage,current,resistance and grounds

Clean the MAF Sensor (crc maf cleaner)

At 100,000 miles replace front O2 Sensors

I had the transmission fluid checked. It was ok- Apparently a malfunction in the electrical system. The battery has been recharged and I drove it yesterday. It seems to be ok. I plan to replace the battery soon, since it has not been replaced since I purchased the car in 2004. I drive it so infrquently I think the battery simply died. It has been driven approximately 25 miles since December 2008. I plan to drive it on the highway this summer.
