Why do you have power to the radio-cd player but it still does not work in a Infiniti J30 and how do you fix it?

same problemI have this same problem on my infiniti j30.. will be working on it this week so ill get back to you.

(my stereo is not stock)

The Bose system works with amps outside the radio/receiver itself. There are amps on each speaker in the car. I bought three different new radios off Ebay. They were all garbage in the end...(used too).

What I did?

I bought a Kenwood double DIN player. Here's a link:

http://electronics.pricegrabber.com/in-dash-CD-mp3-players/kenwood/p/159/st=filter/popup3%5B%5D=20:521/lo_p=0/hi_p=0/form_keyword=kenwood

I bought the 501. It was a great move. It gets rid of the tape. It has RCA hookups for a woofer, plays MP3's and accepts a 8 gig USB card for music, (generally a little IPOD). Sound quality is great. The Kenwood is really nice, but really any stereo will work. Have it be around 50-55 watts per channel. Don't go less than that.

Here's the technical part:

You can still use the Bose speakers, but you need to disconnect and bypass the speaker preamp. Remove the amps. You can sell them on Ebay. Don't cut any wires. Run new wires from the stereo area. Awl a hole thru the boot that houses wires feeding the door's electrical wires. Use a decent gage wire with good insulation covering. Run the speaker cable thru there. You will have to remove the door leather panel liner to get the new wire down to the speaker area. For the rear speakers: run them under the running boards on the driver side to the back. Label the wires to which speaker they will hook up to. You will want to crimp new clamps onto the speaker wires...ones that match the tabs on the speaker.

Use the J30 guide, the one in the trunk, to figure out the electrical diagram wires. Check using a voltmeter to find the hot wires, ground wires and accessory wires. You will not use any of the original speaker wires. An adapter for the antenna will be needed. I bought one on Ebay that was real crap. Goto an audio store. They should have one in stock. (Nissan uses two car antennas. The adapter will combine them into the standard universal plug).

Now you have created a much lower maintenance audio system without losing any sound quality.

How do you change spark plugs on a 1997 Infiniti J30?

Just like any other car. Be sure to use only OEM Nissan Spark plugs. Non Nissan after market spark plugs are known to cause engine mis-firing and power issues.

I would like to add something to this answer, if it hasn't already been done. The spark plugs are located under the fuel coils. These coils are located on top of the engine. There are about six of them and they are numbered. There are two screws in each coil. Once you remove them, pull up on the coil and it will come up and that's where you will find your plugs. Make sure you gap them properly and as the above statement says use only specified plugs. Be ready to pay a little more, perhaps double for your plugs.

Where is the power steering reservoir on a 1998 Infiniti J30?

I believe that there is no 1998 J30, however, the reservoir is located on the 1997 J30 just behind and to the inside of the battery. At least I hope that is the reservoir, as i just put fluid in it!

What tells you which drive axles do you buy for your J30?

THE INFINITY J30 IS REAR WHEEL DRIVE CAR. THE LEFT AND RIGHT REAR AXLES REQUIRE NO ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR PURCHASE. IS IT POSSIBLE YOU ARE REFERING TO THE I30 FROM INFINITY. IT IS NECESSARY DURING THE ORDERING OF THESE FRONT WHEEL DRIVE AXLES THAT YOU DETERMINE WHETHER THE VEHICLE IS EQUIPPED WITH LIMITED SLIP DIFFERENTIAL OR NOT. THIS INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE BY LOCATING THE INFORMATION PLATE ON THE PASSANGER SIDE OF THE ENGINE FIREWALL. THE SECOND LINE WILL REFER TO THE TRANS CODE. IF THE SEVENTH DIGIT IS A "A", IT IS WITHOUT;IF IT IS A "V" IT IS WITH LSD. KEEP IN MIND THIS ONLY MATTERS WHEN BUYING THE LEFT DRIVE AXLE.(THE RIGHT AXLE ARE THE SAME EITHER WAY)

What could cause 1995 J30 to overheat and run hot?

Check the simple things first. With your engine COLD, open the radiator cap and check to see if there's coolant filled all the way to the bottom of the neck. If you look inside and see the slots inside your radiator, then you need to add a 50/50 dilution of coolant (purge). If it's full, then your problem may just be the thermostat (widely available). If that part is okay, you might need a new water pump (overheating problems are so much fun to troubleshoot). Other causes are blocked radiator tines (from bugs and leaves and other road junk), your timing is too far advanced (your spark plugs will tell you for sure), or you may have far more serious problems (warped heads, blown head gasket (check for water or sludge on your oil dipstick). Good luck. Steven

How do you replace the water pump on a Infiniti J30?

How do you remove/replace a water pump on a 1996 Infiniti J30? Remove radiator hoses. Remove induction tubing for the air filter. Remove the fan and all belts. Remove timing belt cover. Remove and replace thermostat at same time as pump. The water pump is BEHIND the timing belt. The timing belt will need replacing at this time to obtain access to the pump. I tried to replace mine on the side of the road in emergency situation by prying the timing belt out of the way. It worked, but I damaged the belt and the tensioner. And thusly, had to go back and replace those too. But common sense in the labor department: Replace the thermostat, water pump, fan blades and fan clutch, ALL radiator hoses, bypass hoses and clamps, radiator and belts at the same time. I have 250k on my J30, and these have all needed replacing eventually.

Why does a 1993 Infinity J30 shake after replacing all the plugs?

J30's don't have a distributor. Each cylinder has its own ignition coil controlled from the engine computer.

It sounds like it is misfiring as one of the cylinders is now no longer reaching ignition.

I'd say double check the connections. Push on each plug to make sure they are completely engaged. I am talking about the power source to the coil.

Hopefully, you didn't overtorque the plugs and strip the cylinder head sparkplug sockets. Only about 15-18 ft./lbs. are needed.

It is possible that the wires from the distributor were not replaced to their corresponding spark plugs. Did you use the correct replacement plugs? The J30 requires platinum-tipped spark plugs.

Can you use regular gas in a 1994 j30?

The J30 engine has a very high compression ratio. If you use lower octane gas, it will cause inefficient combustion in the cylinders. I've used 89 octane a couple of times. It worked okay, but I wouldn't do it very often. Too low an octane can cause tapping sounds in the engine. Long term use will cause engine damage.

As far as a money saver, one has to realize that if you use lower octane the mpg will drop too, as the engine has lost efficiency.

High octane requirements is a common thing with Nissans.

AnswerNo, you must use 91 octane or higher in the J30, it pretty much shares the same engine as the legendary Z cars. If you were to look at a picture of a Nissan Z tt (twin turbo) from '93-'96 you will see that the J30's engine looks almost exactly alike. Which means with a little fabrication you could also hook up twin turbos to the J30, others have done it. But anyway that's why you need premium gas in your car.

Why does the right headlight in your 93 Infinity J-30 come on initially then go out intermittantly and finally stay on even after replacing the bulb and fuse?

There is a wire which connects the lampholder to ground on the chassis. Either the wire is corroded, loose, or the socket for the lamp is corroded. Take the lamp out of the lampholder, and look carefully at the metal parts where the lamp connects to the lampholder. Do any look corroded, fuzzy, dirty, or loose? If not, trace the wire from the lampholder back to where it connects to the frame of the car, or the motor. Look for frayed, chafed, or kinked points on the wire. Check to make sure that the wire is securely attached to the lug where the screw or bolt attaches to the ground point. If none of these checks reveals a problem, take the vehicle to an automotive electrical specialist. I had the same problem with my J30. The driver side headlight would turn on/off. There is a "relay" that needs to be replaced. It is located on the inside sidewall of the front wheel of the driver side. It fixed the problem for me. Hope it works for you as well. There is a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) on the headlamp relay of these cars. Nissan has updated the relay with better material contacts. The relay is located: Standing in front of the car: The very top right corner under the hood. Against the firewall, under the windshield, crammed up against the side of the car.

What is the difference between 91 octane and 95 octane?

91 octane petrol will ignite at a lower temperature and burn faster, which can cause knocking in an auto engine. Lead compounds were added at one time to raise the octane rating, but recently engines have been redesigned to work on low (<98) octane petrol (or gas in the US colonies)

You have to remove the fuse panel inside the car to the left of the drivers seat by removing to brass bolts and then pushing in the two plastic tabs on the left and the right side of the fuse panel. Once you have released it from the frame you need to carefully twist it so you can see the back side of it. There is a 20amp fuse number 63 which is for the automatic door locks located there. Remove and replace and then do everything in the reverse order to put it back together again.
