i'm having the same problem, i've got an '03 4 door g35, and already had cd player replaced once at dealership...it was under warranty then, now it's not, and it is saying cd error...if you find out anything on this please let me know...i'm betting it's something simple and we could fix without taking to dealership

you need to find out what type of screws or hex nuts are holding in the radio from the front. There may be little covers hiding the screws. look around the outside of your radios to see if you can find a screw or hex nut. Then simple unscrew this and it should remove the radio for you.

some have had success by banging on the side of the unit ... or holding the eject button and sliding in another cd ... or pulling the fuse (or disconnecting the battery) for 30 minutes.
I am about to try these approaches ... will let you know.

Any other ideas?

i've had a 2004 G35 for over 2 yrs, already had the cd player replaced once and am going to complain about it again the next time i go in. it skips bad on store bought or burned cd's, it doesn't discriminate. it seems to especially have problems when it's cold out, and keeps skipping until the car warms up. original one when i bought it or one following replacement, the same problem is there, so i figure it's just a design defect rather than the specific units i've had being defective

i am having the same problem now, i have had some success hitting the side of it, i think it is actually the CD's or the tracks for the disc changer getting jammed. I was told if you remove the two vents touching your face plate, that it is easily removed after that. GAH this is frustrating, i did clean my cd player the last time this happened and it corrected the problem, guys if you are havign this issue you have to remove the face plate and manually correct the problem, the error F0 does mean that there is a physical obstruction.. currently all my cd player will do is "disc check.... CD error f0"
so im gonna go beat on it and see if i can get it working again -.- if anyone figures something out post it for sure, this is an expensive unit to replace :S

the problem you guys are having is very serious and also imperative that you get it taken care of immediately before your AC and radio both get wHacked out of control.

my 6disc changer went out a while back. i didnt care bc i had ipod. well 2 weeks ago i wuz cruising, ipod thru tape adapter and no AC was on. i hear a pop from radio (component dmg) and radio n AC lights go out. AC comes on full blast next and i can only control radio from steering wheel. turns out cd changer sends bad signals out after that. therefore, burning other components. eventually AC n whole radio. it can also lead to draining of the car battery.

i looked into it and realized that a circuit board in the back of radio, which AC controls is connected too, has damaged components bc of the 6disc changer going out. a recall was made by infiniti about this. it happens to a lot of 2003 G35s. mine is a 2003 G35 sedan.

anyways, you gotta find a factory car stereo repair place and either ship your radio to them or drive your G35 there and let them work on it. it doesnt take long but finding the right people to do it is tough.

have a new 6disc changer installed bc that is the root problem and solder/fix components on circuit board. fixing only the circuit board will only last you a few weeks then the cd changer will catch back up and burn the new board.

Wow, my problem is absolutely identical to yours.... first CD changer went out, then months later the whole front console locked up while blasting AC. The radio still works via the steering wheel controls.

Some questions though....

I found a shop in Florida (link below) that generally describes the same problem and allows you to ship your radio to them for "repair." However, you are saying that "a new 6disc changer" needs to be installed because the changer is the root of the problem.
1) Buy "new" do you mean a used changer in working order should be installed? As far as I know they don't make brand new changers for a 2003 G35.
2) Do you think "repairing" the CD changer will suffice. That also begs the question just how do these guys repair the changer in the first place.

I went to a place in Miami where they said this happens because the CD changer is packed so tight that it jams, and of course, the physical obstruction, since the A/C is on the same module short circuits. They said this problem could be eliminated by changing the whole unit A/C and changer controls, with an aftermarket kit that separates the two components. However, they recommended that a single disc player be installed instead of the changer to prevent further issues with the limited space. The whole installation costs under $400 compared to what the dealership will charge, about $1800.

INFINITY G-35 2003 cd player wont eject....

MY CD Player is currently reading ERR FO-what does that mean? it sounds like it is cointinously trying to get the cd out and it cant....it keeps trying all the time, even when car is completely turned off. It has drained my battery every single night and i have to jump start it every day this week so far! I just went to the stereo place and they want to take it apart and ship it off....I'm thinking this sounds expensive! Any other techniques I can try before I have to send it off? AC is still working great and I cannot afford to lose out on that (being it's been 95 all week!). Help please [:)]

This is really educative cos i bought a used 2003 G35 sedan and it had the CD problem just 2months after i bought it. the dealership referred me to a specialist who charged me $700 but i didn't fixed it since i had my ipod. A couple of months later the Ac unit started having problem and dealership weren't so sure of the problem telling me they will replace a unit which cost $500 and if it doesn't work they will replace the whole board for $2000. i ended up trading the sedan for a 2006 G35 coupe and just one year of me having this car, the CD problem started yesterday. I wish i had this information then i wouldn't have bought another infiniti n i wouldn't advice nobody to buy it cos the manufacturers should know all these problems but they not doing anything about it.

Sooooooooooo.... What have we learned???????????????

In a nut shell...

Apparently these cd changer units are flawed and are also somehow tied in with the a/c module causing a/c problems...

The best solution would be to separate the two and go with a single unit with a changer in the trunk...

While Car Junky.com does not condom or recommend technical abuse in way, shape or form.........apparently beating the cr@p out of these does help.......sometimes.....


Jk306 or Kenray, if you guys have any tech info you would like to add............pm me & I would be more than happy to add it for you. Considering the length & time of this tread....... I imagine it will be source of many searches to come...

Anyone else I'd be more than happy to answer any tech help requests in the forum but I DO NOT RESPOND TO PMS
