Q: Electrical controls not working - 2014 Infiniti QX60

asked by on

I had a really bad battery in my car when I bought it second hand. It was the worst grade and the car wouldn’t start even with a jump. So I picked up a new high performance gel battery and my car starts. But some of the controls aren’t working for the lights, windows and a few other things. The back hatch door light in the console flashes all the time. The hatch door wiper blades teeters all the time. The 3rd row seat heat and air conditioning is blowing all the time. I can’t get them to turn off, and I can’t get back any indicators on the dashboard. I’m going to fix this myself but need help. Do you have any advice or suggestions please?

Hello. From the symptoms you describe, it would appear that your vehicle is experiencing some serious electrical issues. Unless you are knowledgable on the subject, I would not recommend attempting to work on this vehicle's electrical system on your own. A luxury vehicle such as this uses a highly sophisticated, and therefore highly sensitive, electrical system that can sometimes be difficult to diagnose or work on if you are unfamiliar. It's possible that there is a short in the circuit somewhere or a problem with the computer that is causing all of these electrical problems to occur. I would have a professional technician carefully diagnose the electrical system so that this repair can be taken of properly.

Q: Considering purchasing, however, I am leery of possible high maintenance costs associated with this vehicle. Dependable? High maintenance?

Going from a BMW 135i to a 2014 Porsche Cayenne will obviously cost more in maintenance through the years. From special procedures during repairs, more expensive parts and higher labor costs, you can only expect the upkeep costs to go...

Q: Heater not working and car overheating.

The first thing to check is if the coolant is low. This car is known to have a problem with the radiator leaking coolant on the sides and may have leaked most of the coolant out. This is why your...

Q: Car cutting off while driving

Multiple issues here. The strut mounts require special tools which are not an on-site repair. The water pump requires timing belt replacement as well (which is intensive). The air conditioner also requires special tools where the repairs may require a...
