Scan Tool - V35


Recommended Posts

Hi, Wondering if anyone on here can point me in the direction of someone with a scan tool to plug into my V35 sedan?

Air bag light has started to flash and the usual reset only lasts for a day.

My local Nissan dealer usually wont touch imports.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Geoff this is the wrong place to be asking such advice. Post a thread in the V35 section - and in fact you will already find a topic there on it.

But I would take it to Main North Nissan if I were you - pretty sure they will service the V35 since it is so similar to the 350Z.

BTW saw your V35 in Nuri a few weeks back parked in the carpark at the park with the train in it opposite BP/Subway. Looked around for you, but couldn't find you.

Thanks Andrew,

Was hoping that there may have been someone else other than a dealer that could help.

Anyone with a Carman or Launch scanner could do the job as well.

Spotted your car leaving not long after I arrived in my Ute. Missus drives the 35.

he's already asked me about it. told him what to look for as well. its case of finding someone dwon there with a carmen or launch to read the thing. I'm 2'5 hrs away by plane and I'm not heading that way anytime soon.

who does your svc work? (they may be able to help him :) )

in general nissan is nissan. the diagnostics haven't really changed (unless we are talking C3) on any of them.

I do all my own work on the car Chris - a mechanic of any variety has not touched the thing yet.

As I said go to Main North Nissan, Craig in the spare parts division is an import supporter (he used to help me out on spares for my R34 all the time no problems), and they are an SAU:SA club sponsor (so if you joined up you would get 10% off too), so I would definitely try there Geoff.

The common problem with airbag light flashing is loss of contact in yellow conectors below passenger or driver seats. There are two of them for two safety devices that related to SRS system (in accident they will brake a lower part of seat to keep you down) Fix them and reset SRS by pedal.




Main North Nissan refuses to service V35 and does not matter who are you and where from.

"CAS804"..... as basic as they come

If you have an iphone or ipad...... buy the OBDII WIFI connector and download one of the OBD2 apps for realtime diagnostics :)

I did, it doesnt work unfortunately

could not connect with ECU

which ABD adapter do you have?

The Kiwi PLX one has videos being used on a G35 on YouTube, and it supports both OBDII and CAN, which our car needs. I have been looking at getting one of these for some time.

    • Yeah it was a little confusing as stream of consciousness. To be clear I’m referring to a failure in a NEO turbo where you have another MAP sensor or something similar teed with the OEM MAP sensor for whatever reason. 
    • Cheers for the feedback. Yeah I've already got the superpro outer adjustable bushes, been in for about a year now. Bought the inner non adjustable superpro bushes last week and planning to install this week/next week. I'm kinda set on going polyurethane path to help stiffen things up a bit and longevity. RE: Is there a good quality aftermarket replacement arm which already has new bushings but also adjustable camber? Rather than the eccentric bolt? Yep, Hardrace and Cusco do them about $450-$500. Rubber bush.  Would have been the easier option.
    • I have this issue with my 08 v36 sedan that has only had 98 in it last 10 years, and Im pretty sure my mechanic puts k&n in when servicing. Could it really be that simple? I've been shopping around to get it fixed, but being so cold in Adelaide, it doesn't make the noise.
    • That's somewhat of a mixed message or confabulation of two different things. Point 1. Yes, it is generally a bad idea to tap anything into the FPR connection because when it goes wrong the lean condition is very destructive. No, it doesn't go wrong often, but when it does, it is usually because the ignorance of the failure mode is combined with sufficient general ignorance that the failure becomes more likely through ineptitude. Thus, it is generally easier to simply say "don't do it" than try to have a nuanced discussion. Point 2. The Neo's boost sensor "failure mode" should you tap into its connection and have that connection fail is not severe at all. But this is where the confabulation occurs, because you made it sound like tapping into the FPR on a Neo was not as bad. There wasn't any need to bring the Neo's boost sensor up as it was lacking in relevance, even with its previous mention in this thread. /pedant mode.
    • A few things to consider: Is there a good quality aftermarket replacement arm which already has new bushings but also adjustable camber? Rather than the eccentric bolt? Many years ago I replaced all my bushings front and rear with superpro polyurethane bushings. Sure they've been fine. But the castor isn't adjustable and is slightly out, the camber adjustment bolts aren't the greatest and most secure way of adjusting them. If I were to do them again I'd probably just replace the arms with aftermarket ones. I used a 5 ton press to get everything out. The biggest pain is having a wide selection of metal pipe pieces that are strong enough to press things out with. The rear hub bushings gave me PTSD.
