Where is the fuse for Infinity I30 radio 2001?

Try thisMy I30 is a 1999. The fuses are lower left side of dash, between the steering wheel and emergency brake. The fuse that controls the radio is labeled "AUDIO". I had a situation where the fuse blew (almost) every time I turned left. Dealership wanted $600-$700 to tear into the electrical system. Local mechanic jiggled a couple wires, and I haven't had the problem in 1-2 yrs.

It is located under the hood in the fuse box next to the battery. It is listed as audio.

What is normal city mpg for a 98 infinity I30?

I've had my 98 I30t for about 6 years now, and living in Austin, Texas, I do a combination of city and short highway driving. I always use premium gasoline, and I normally run the A/C year-round. With all that considered, I've averaged 20 MPG pretty consistently.

How do you replace a starter on a 2000 an Infiniti I-30?

I just did it - a little tougher for a non-mechanic like myself than the answers I found posted would indicate.

First - take off airbox. There are three screws connecting it to the body of the car. You can take off the screws connecting it to the bracket too, but you don't have too. You should remove the bracket from the car, though. Unplug that electrical connector by pushing down on the green tab and pulling it off.

Move the whole mess out of the way. You'll have to unplug the three hoses toward the front of the engine from the assembly, and two of those hoses have those damn metal clamps on them (use a pliers). Loosen the clamp on the exhaust hose going to the engine, but on the airbox side of it. Move the airbox out of the way - you can sort of wedge it under the edge of the hood.

Now - remove the nut holding the wire that's nearest to the firewall (the other nut has a connection to the other part of the starter, and doesn't need to be removed.) Pull that whole wire assembly out of the way. It's connected to a bracket, and to remove it you need to stick a tiny flat blade screwdriver into the top. Shine a flashlight in there - you'll see a little black tab flush against the metal piece. Pull that tab away from the metal with the screwdriver and the whole assembly pulls up.

See those wires blocking your way from getting at that top nut? Another one of those black tab things! This one is tough to loosen up, I ended up breaking the round plastic piece. Oh well. Move those wires out of the wire.

Now, here's a little trick - you still have that bracket in the way. After you remove the bolts on the starter, it will stop you from taking it out. Mechanic trick: take a thick screwdriver and bend the whole bracket up and out of the way. Crude, but it worked great.

Remove the top bolt - 14 mm. Now the tough one - the bottom bolt (it's actually visible, it's on the right side at about 4:00). You need a 17mm socket ON A SWIVEL. If you haven't used this before, here's how:

It's a "universal joint". It swivels. Attach the 17mm socket to it, and an extension to the other end. Put it on the bolt and it will be sticking straight out. Pull it up so it's tilting up, about 2:00. Put your ratchet on the extension and USE A BREAKER BAR (or, in my case, a piece of pipe). It will come loose pretty easily. Here's the alternative: don't do any of that, fight with the damn thing for an hour trying to get it loose, skin your knuckles, bleed a bit, curse a lot, and think about burning the car.

The first way is easier.

Okay, almost there. Pull it out, but wait - there's still a soldered on wire. The other end is on a slide on bracket. You can try sliding it off - I tried. Then I snapped it off (hey, there's limits.) Now it just disconnects by pulling apart, or use a screwdriver to help separate it.

Installation, as they say, is the reverse of removal. Except for one thing: remember that exhaust hose going to the engine? You may have trouble getting it back on (I did). Another mechanic trick: spray it with WD-40 or Liquid Wrench. After messing around for 20 minutes, I sprayed it and got it back on in a couple of minutes.

Good luck!

Does the 2000-2001 Infinity I30 have a Timing Belt or Timing Chain?

The 2000-2001 Infiniti I30 engine (vq 30 de) has a timing chain. There is no scheduled maintenance for the chain as it does not require periodic adjustment. These timing chains are purported to last around 300,000 miles.

Also these engines are not interference engines. They do no internal damage if timing chain breaks.

Why won't a 1994 G20 Infinity start?

[check your starter. that was the problem with mine. 94 G20] Original Answer

We just fixed my sister's '95 G20 start problem and ours was a recessed pin in a connector in the starter relay wire (the small wire that's attached to the starter). but there are a few tests you can do;

1. This one is simple: make sure everything is hooked up like you were going to start it on a normal day, then turn your headlights on and try to start it. If it sounds like it tries and the headlights dim (even a little) it's likely a dead battery. if there's a click/no click and then nothing and headlights don't dim, you've got an open somewhere in the starter circuit.

2. If the engine cranks over no problem, but just won't start firing and driving itself, you've likely got either a dead fuel pump or a clogged fuel line/filter.

3. have someone listening under the hood when you turn the key to the on position to make sure the clutch inhibitor relay is clicking (should click once when the key is turned to the on position).

If you're a Do-It-Yourselfer, here's some solutions you can try. If not, take it to a mechanic and tell him/her your findings and let them go from there.

1. If you have a multimeter/voltmeter and ohmmeter, you can investigate an open fairly easily-BE CAREFUL with the voltmeter test as you will have to have the battery plugged in. start by pulling the starter fuse (if it's like my sister's, it'll be tucked underneath the front driverside quarter panel under the hood, (should be able to access it just behind the battery). you can do an ohm test on the fuse itself to make sure it's good (if it's not transparent, otherwise just look at the metal arch inside it to see if it's separated). then a voltage test with the red lead in one side of the fuse plug and the other on the negative side of the battery or a good ground like the frame or the engine; you should get 11.9v-12.4v. (if you don't get voltage try moving the red lead to the other side of the fuse plug). Do you get voltage? Yes: your issue is farther down the line, closer to the starter motor. No: you have an open between your battery and the fuse. continue testing this way all the way to the starter motor. once on the other side of the ignition switch you can switch to ohm testing, just make sure the key is in the OFF position or you'll fry your tester. Here's a couple wiring diagrams for manual or automatic transmission:

How do you replace a broken antenna on a 1993 Isuzu Trooper?

I did this on a "96" Trooper for a power antenna. Remove the lining in the wheel well above the tire. You should be able to find any replacement screws or clips in your local auto parts store for reinstalling, if needed. You will need to turn your tire all the way to one side for better access of some screws and the antenna itself. There will probably be a couple of screws holding the power antenna unit to the fender. Remove the screws anchoring the power unit. At this time, you probably want to disconnect your car battery. When you open the power unit to reveal the inner workings, the power winder can automatically activate. There will be no way to stop it without disconnecting the battery. You will want to examine how the power unit is wound and copy it with the new antenna. Good luck.

How do you reset the Service Engine Soon Light on a 2001 Infiniti I30?

Infinit's website says that removing battery cables for 24 hours will reset the Service Engine Soon light. Computer memory is only 24 hours so it should go off when cables are re-attached. If light comes back on, take to a service center for diagnostics. Try this next procedure. This worked for me (procedure turned off the SES Light off). Changed the spark plugs using Bosch Platinum +4 spark plugs (four electrodes); awesome plugs. Cleaned the Mass Flow Sensor using Mass Flow Sensor cleaner. Whallah, the light turned off instantly and has stayed off. Performance on car has increased and it runs very smooth. This worked very well for me. The process has tuned my engine and has allowed the gas to burn more effectively. The O2 sensors have responded by telling the engine computer that the engine is running cleaner. Before trying this tuneup process, 89 and 92 octane did turn off the light for awhile as well. But the tune-up turned off the light completely.

What is wrong with a 96 Infiniti I30 if it will not start and makes a clicking noise when you turn the key?

AnswerIt is most likely its a voltage problem, meaning low voltage. check your battery and connections to make sure they are tight and clean and that the battery has a good charge in it.

Personal experiences and the solutions:

After the battery make sure you check the battery cable connecters. For some reason I have had really bad luck with them. I spent a lot of money looking for problems that weren't there.

I have a 2000 infiniti i30 and mine made the same clicking noise and would not even turn over. After checking all fuses and electrical connections, it was thought to be the starter. It was starting fine days before but just went out suddenly. I had the old starter and the new starter tested before purchasing the new one. Mine was held by 2 bolts which you must remove the air filter housing to get to and a series of extensions and swivels and breaker bar. Hope this helps.

This is likely an issue with the neutral safety switch.

I had the same problem w/97 I30t, After a new battery, starter and almost a new alternator it truned out to be a type of modulator inside the steering column. The part was about 70-75 bucks. I have not had a problem since.

I had the identical problem with my 96 I30 after letting it sit for a year and after recharging the battery. I have 343,600 miles on mine and I'm the original and only owner. I downloaded the schematic diagrams for the electrical system. I took out fuse #17 (10 Amp) which basically shut down the anti-theft (start) and it still didn't start. After checking that fuse #33 (7.5 Amp) was good, I replaced the starter (very first one) and it's working fine. The only other thing it could be is the inhibitor switch (Park or Neutral switch) so try both positions and if it doesn't start in either Park or Neutral, it's probably the starter. Bought the starter brand new on Ebay for $75 delivered!

How do you remove the dash on a Infinity I30 for stereo replacement?

1996-1999 Infiniti I30 Stereo Removal The square portion of the dash that is above the stereo and holds the vents and the hazard and rear defrost switches will snap out when gently pried on with a regular screwdriver around it's edges. Be gentle and move slow, being careful not to smash too hard against the edge of the dash board creating crease marks. Once that is out, it will reveal the 2 gold bolts on the top that hold the bracket holding the AC controls and the stereo. It is also bolted at the bottom and the following explains how to get to the 2 bottom bolts. The plastic piece that goes around the shifter will pop up, also when gently pried on with a regular screwdriver around it's edges. Once it is up, you can squeeze and unplug the lighter plug. Then move the ashtray, it is held in with one screw on it's left side and is snapped on the right side in the rear. You can not see the RR snap on the ashtray but once the screw is removed you can pop it straight out by again gently using a regular screwdriver to pry from the right side. Most of the time, that RR snap will fall off when it unsnaps. You can find the little metal clip and reattach it to the tab on the back of the ashtray or many times we have not found it and it causes no problems to not use it but I would wait until the stereo is being put back in before putting it back on and snapping it back in there because it will just come off again when the ashtray has to be taken back out for reinstall of stereo. Now you can see the bottom 2 bolts and once removed will allow the whole tall assembly holding the stereo and AC controls to come out once the wiring has been disconnected from back side. The plugs that go into the stereo can be a little tricky to unplug so what we use is a regular screwdriver to press down on the connectors latch, releasing it and push it out or pull gently of the harness to unplug it. Do that for both connectors beside each other. There is a plastic hose on most of these, that is easiest to unplug if you follow it for about 15 inches from the stereo and you will see where it comes apart. It is easiest to unplug all so you can have this assembly out of the car to remove the stereo. Many times we just remove the screws from one of the sides of the bracket holding stereo and AC controls, which allows you to slide the stereo out.
