The crankshaft angle sensor or the camshaft position sensor can fail and cause loss of engine power, an engine that cuts out, and other drivability problems. This will cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Certain models have been involved in a recall to replace the camshaft and crankshaft sensors.

This just started for me, I was driving along, when all of sudden my car just died, when I stopped, I couldn't get the vehicle started, it was acting like it didn't have gas, but I did. A light saying VDC (slipped) turned on as well as the service engine soon. I let it sit for a few minutes and it started, it keeps doing it now. I looked on line and saw this recall, so I am taking it in to Infiniti dealership to check.

Took my 2005 G35 coupe to Infiniti of Tampa for front axle issue. Found out there was a recall. Delaership changed the part without conferring with me. I didn't think anything of it. 6 months later I notice car will have idle issue and occasionally stall out. I've had the car stall out twice while driving. The latest was this morning as i was turning right into my office. Due to the stall there was no power steering and brakes were mushy. I barely made the turn and was able put the gear in neutral and start the engine again. I had to apply gas to keep the rpm above idle and engaged to "D". Problem persisted and had to apply more gas to keep above idle and park safely.

Car started shaking. Pulled over to check tires. Hard time restarting car and check engine light came on, but it got me home. Took it to shop who said was the camshaft sensor. Contacted Infinity Customer Service to check on recall. Surprise surprise, VIN not on "the list". Seems like with all the reports on this website of the same problem and all of the VIN's not "being on the list" maybe a new recall should be called.

Check engine light came on, car started dragging through mid range rpm's. Car feels like it has no bottom end power, no torque. I replaced the sensor myself 8 months ago, since then, the sensor has thrown the check engine light 3 times and each time my car feels like crap. Every time i have auto zone check it , it is the same code, Camshaft sensor bank 1. i tried disconnecting the electrical clip and putting it back on in case it wasnt seated fully. Weird thing is, it started working right and my car felt better than ever for 3 days, full power, no hesitation. Then out of the blue, the light comes on again and my car feels like a dog. I have an 07 6mt and its aggravating that its not on the recall list. wth is the deal with that?

Car stalled on reverse. Restarted w/Check Engine, SLIP & VDC lights remained on. Took to dealer, said the Passenger side Cam Sensor had oil in it and was faulty.

Car stalled a few times in my driveway, a minute or too after pulling off. Last week it stalled on me in the middle of traffic, but luckily while I was stopped due to a traffic jam. There is no warning when the stall occurs, just that you lose power suddenly and you realize the car is not moving when you press the accelerator. I do not trust driving it now for fear it will quit while I am in moving traffic.

My vehicle shut off without warning while I was on the freeway with my daughter in the back seat. I frantically kept hitting the start button for several minutes until the car started again. It is currently being repaired by the dealership, but having seen these reports now (and documents on the safecar.gov site related to a 2003 recall), I advised the dealership to look into this defect to ensure this doesn't happen again.
