1999 Infiniti QX4 Problems
The 4WD light may flash on and off intermittently with no transfer case related fault code stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). Our technicians recommend to ensure the correct Nissan/Infinity approved fluid is present in the transfer case if this condition occurs.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate with code P0138, P0140, P0158, and/or P0160 stored. Our technicians recommend replacing the rear oxygen sensor, and reprogramming the vehicle's powertrain control module (PCM) with upgraded software to correct this concern.
Carbon deposits on the throttle body may cause any of the following issues: Idle speed fluctuation, incorrect idle speed, difficulty accelerating way from a stop, and or increased accelerator pedal resistance. Our technicians tell us a revised throttle body and associated parts are available to resolve this issue.
1999 Infiniti QX4 Questions
The car was driven out of town and the brakes worked perfectly, went to drive the car next day and the brake peddle went to the floor. Thought maybe air got in the line had the system bleed, it was the same. Is it maybe control relay, abs, or what is the LSV air bleeder.
The problem is continuous, and air will only stop blowing if I turn the SUV completely off.
1999 Infiniti QX4 Recalls
In areas where winter road salt is used, a mixture of snow/water and salt may enter an assembly location hole in the upper strut housing. This corrosive mixture can collect on the mating surface of the strut housing panel and the inner hood ledge assembly; over time, this can cause rusting of the strut tower housing. The rust can weaken the housing, causing it to crack and pull away from the inner hood ledge assembly. This can lead to grinding noises and increased steering effort, which, if severe enough, can cause the steering column to break. This would result in a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the strut housing and repair the vehicles as necessary. An interim notification letter should be mailed to owners prior to May 16, 2011.
