      By Breezy · Posted
      I just bought an 04 350z and have now found out that most insurance companies don't cover drivers under 25? Im 20 years old and get my full license in about 2 months. Could anybody here give me some advice or recommendations for insurance companies that will cover me?

    • Replaced clock spring - now steering angle sensor problem
      By ThatZeeGuy · Posted
      Hey Paul,

      Not sure if I have the answer to this but it does seem like a very peculiar sequence of events.
      Was this issue happening at all (that you noticed) prior to changing the clock spring?

      This may be a process whereby you may need to re-trace your steps to ensure that all connections are plugged in correctly and that nothing has accidentally disconnected or become loose behind the dash.

      I hope that you are able to find some sort of solution.

      Cheers,
      Matt
    • Unsure if bad coil / cylinder not firing?
      By ThatZeeGuy · Posted
      Hey Brendon.

      This does seem to have a miss-fire, which could be causes by the Coil Pack. I remember for our old 350, the Rocker Cover leaked slightly, causing a small amount of oil to seep into the coil channel. This caused the rubber seal around the Spark Plug to expand, which was enough to cause spark issues.

      This is not uncommon and the best way to ensure that that is the problem, see if you can track down a good coil to test out, maybe even borrow 1 from a fellow member. If that fixes the problem, then you will know that
      1) It is your coil pack and
      2) that you will need to replace the rocker cover gasket on that side to stop the leak.

      I hope that this helps you out!

    • Replaced clock spring - now steering angle sensor problem
      By jongpau · Posted
      Hey everyone, First of all, I am a by no means a mechanic - just a guy who loves his toy Zed - so please forgive if I use incorrect language  Also, this is my first post to the forum so I hope I am in the right area to post this - as it is involving electronics.  The airbag light started flashing and the horn stopped working in my '05 350Z so I recently replaced the clock spring. A bit of a job and a half for a novice but I got it done eventually. So, airbag lights fixed, horn works again - yay happy days! However, now when I drive the car down the road the VCD kicks in, rattles the brakes and eventually lights up the SLIP and VCD warning lights. After this the car is drives fine. I did some Googling and found that in the process of replacing the clock spring i may have accidentally misaligned the steering angle sensor. So, I have bought a VAG KKL cable and the NDSII software and done a steering angle reset. After this I drove the car but the same problem still happened (except that I made it about 3 times as far down the road). My best guess at this stage is that I somehow did not mount the steering angle sensor properly to the clock spring (?) - so i will have to pull the entire thing apart again and retrace my steps. Before I get the toolbox out, does anyone have any hints and tips of where I may have gone wrong and things I can/should look into to fix the problem? Many thanks for any tips Paul  
    • Apple CarPlay
      By ChocSoldier · Posted

      I've tried a lot of similar options and they never worked properly for my liking..

      Best bet is to get something that plugs into video inputs (you can buy kits that add reverse camera input along with RCA/HDMI or both). My current setup uses a wired remote with a knob for Apple CarPlay.

      Do not use the video input in the centre console. Some people have managed to get video bypass kits to work, but I didn't. Also, the video has weird distortion and resizing whenever I have used those inputs. With the kits that add additional video inputs, simply switch to that input source (there is another small button usually), and then switch the screen to "STATUS" so it thinks it doesn't have to display video.
