Engine light

5 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I have a 2013 with AEM Cold Air Intake. For the past few months the engine light keeps coming on and sometime the (lost traction) light.

I have taken it to ultra tune and all they could tell me was it was a temp sensor.

I have had the two most forward (front of the car) S/F air temp sensors replaced and I though the problem was fixed and then the light was back on again.

Has anyone had this problem, If so how did you fix it.

I have been told it needs to be tuned/detuned? Has anyone had their 370Z tuned here in Perth?

Regards John

You need the CEL code. Requires a OBDII reader to extract the code from the car.  Jaycar sell them.

Lost traction light is just that  ....  be a bit more delicate with your right foot.

Hi BGTV8,

Thanks for the advice. I have ordered a OBD II and hopefully it will tell me where the problems are.

The thing with the traction light is it can come on when I am doing 40Km in forth and other times when I start the car.

Regards John.

I remember having this issue in the 350z, funno if its the same thing i think mine may have been a cam sensor but i dont remember. However i do remember the car eventually turning off during drives, scary stuff

Thanks Brett,

I will see what the OBD II reader comes up with once I get it.

      Hi mate,   Welcome. I run a very stock 2009 370z and have had zero problems. I think it depends on how you drive it and what you do to it. The only thing I can warn you about is the very limited rear 180deg view, e.g., behind your ears back. That said, its a sports car so kinda to be expected and you will learn to cope. Cheers.

      Yea I saw that cougar motors offer for supply and install of the AAM TT kit. Seems ludacris to me, since the kit cost me around 12K-16K alone for labor because of all the modification and fab work needed.   But anyways if thats what they offer as a business thats what they have to uphold. Just wish I saw it before I did my build.

      I was wondering if the Victoria Japanese style plates fit the rear stock bumper slot of a 350z? I've done the measurements but it's hard to tell if it will just fit or be slightly too big.
      Does anybody have them on their 350Z?
