I have the door locking experience too. I can live with it, but was wondering if there is a cure, and what it is?

My '95 has power door lock with mind of its own. Just sometimes, the doors lock when you normally slam the door. I have locked my keys in three times and now have learnt my lesson by carrying a spare key in my wallet. Problem solved!!!

I have the same experience, and have gotten in the habit of removing my keys each time i get out.
Although I'm prepared to live with this, does anyone know why this happens or what the cure is?
#660 of 691 STALLIING 93 Infiniti J30
Dec 02, 2007 (9:51 am)
I own a 94 Infiniti J30 with 180,000 and it has recently started stalling as well. I'm pretty mechanical, but I am hesitant to start tearing into that crowded japanese motor. Did you ever figure out what was causing your car to stall?
My J30 is doing the same thing, once it warms up some electrical issues start happening. Its related to my breaks I think, when I tap them my lights dim on the inside and out. It eventually dies on me and I see a check engine sensor (which has been on for the last 15,000 miles probably although its been running EXCELLENT...) I also see my airbag light, seatbelt light, and ABS light. This has happened about 6 times in the last week. Sometimes it will stutter and the gas pedal is very non-responsive (which makes me think it could be a fuel filter possibly). After it dies on me, it is VERY VERY hard to start.
Does anyone have any useful knowledge???

Try running the codes on the ECM. I don't have any idea on your electrical issues, but my check engine light was caused by a clogged EGR, malfunctioning camshaft position sensor, and defective coil(s), which although it still ran OK would have eventually caused it to stall.

If you are not averse to used parts, I have gotten a bunch of cheap used parts from salvage lots listed on car-part.com. That is the only place I have gone to look for parts since 2000.
#663 of 691 Fuel Pickup Issues--Sensor Locations?
Jan 05, 2008 (2:48 pm)
I've got a 94 J30, under 100K miles. I ran some errands yesterday, and the car ran great. Parked it in the garage, now it won't start.
My neighbor came over and diagnosed the problem as some kind of fuel pickup issue. He tested all the fuses, and everything tested at 12V. Then, everything started getting complicated. After ripping all the panels out of the trunk, he uncovered the tank. Evidently, the fuel pump relay is working fine, because turning on the ignition causes gas to move. So cool.
He wants to start testing sensors, but we're not sure where to find them. The one he's specifically asking about is the camshaft sensor (I think), and then I'm sure he'll be asking about the locations of other ones. You guys have a better idea of what to look at, I think.
Anyway, where is the camshaft/crankshaft sensor located?
Oh, and Happy New Year!

First, Congrats! I own a pearl white 97 j30t and yes the windshield defroster vent is popping up and because of the location (windshield vs dash) you can't get over it to apply pressure and have yet to pop them back in. I feel your pain. I'm at 112K miles and have not changed the timing belt and that worries me alot. I have had only to problems with mine (other than the dash vents) and fixed one today. It was the rattle of the right rear 6x9 speaker. I removed it (by the way, the rear speakers have their own on-board amps) and glued the center cone dust cover back to the main cone with thick cyanoacrylate (super glue). And the Bose system is now back and sounds clean. The other is the remote and door switch trunk lock. It moves but doesn't travel far enough to unlatch any more. Still investigating this one. Well you may have these problems to so be surprised . Just enjoy driving again like I do but only when I drive my J . Oh yeah, I'm putting on the 2007 G35 OEM 17" five spokes alloys with GY eagle RSAs as soon as UPS shows up. Found them on eBay. So I'll also be screaming soon.
