Electrical Issue - Replaced Battery, Driver Footwell Now Beeping?!


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Hoping someone can shed some light on this. I replaced my battery today and now i have beeping noise coming from my driver's footwell. The beeps quicken when i have the ignition on or turn the car on.

I tried searching here and G35 forums with limited success.

I tried holding down the buttons on the keyfob for 3-4 secs, couldnt get the horn to sound or lights to flash (had read that this can 'reset' beep noises in cabin)

Have also inspected each of the fuses in the driver's footwell, all are good.

Any ideas from anyone?

Cheers

Mat

hmm sorry I can't be of more help but since nobody else has chimed in so far...

I take it no warning lights on the dash suddenly lighting up with the beep?

You could try resetting the ECU & see if that stops the beeping.

hope you get it sorted soon

Thanks Yo-yo, yeah no warning lights, car seems to operate normally.

Whats the easiest way to reset the ECU? I've read theres a few ways and not all of them apparently work!?

Cheers

^^ does that still work?? I thought resetting the ECU by disconnecting the power was something that hasn't worked since the mid 1990s? everything is stored in flashRAM now isn't it?

i put a Z tube on my 2003 A/T on Saturday and the final instruction was to disconnect the negative side of the battery to reset the ECU. It worked. ;)

mattyray did it stop beeping :huh:

Yeah, thats exactly what i asked for from 3 Nissan dealerships, earliest i could get in was 6th of June!

Cheers for the advice anyways guys.

Happy to hear from anyone else who has encountered similar issues.

6th of June - they've got to be pulling your leg! Probably giving you crap service because it's an import.

You could try a Repco mechanic or some other private workshop. Many of them have a comprehensive array of diagnostic devices.

Heck, I could probably post you my Cipher cable to get there before then.

    • >complete amateur >1:24 at Winton laggy massive HP RWD R32 I dunno about the first part I would argue this use case probably doesn't need VCT, won't be in the rev range that it would ever be active!
    • Last weekend I changed out the noisy bearing in the rear. It went fine except the axle was super stuck in the hub. I eventually got it all swapped out over two days. The car is so much quieter but the ABS light came on. I freaked out thinking I'd put the bearing in backwards or used one without the integrated magnet for the speed sensor (lower E90's use a ring attached to the axle rather than built into the bearing). I checked the 2nd bearing I got, seems I got it right (black side in first). I bought a new Bosch speed sensor from eBay which arrived today, 10 mins to fit and cleared codes. No more ABS light.  My gut says I probably damaged it when pressing the bearings in and out as it kinda hangs in a bad spot - i should have removed it. Anyway, whatever, its quiet and fixed. I think the front bearings are ready for changing now, I can hear very slight noise that would have been masked by the dead rear one. Front ones are bolt in thankfully. Also bought the Nolathane rear subframe bushes and a Whiteline 16mm rear sway bar (OE is 13mm). I had this bar on my 330i but cbf'd removing it so just got another. The subframe needs to be lowered to fit the bar so i'll do bushes and bar at the same time. I was really temped to get solid aluminium bushes but they are really expensive and the whole subframe has to come out, not just be dropped which is not something I'm keen to do. 
    • who'd have thought and  some compression 🤔
    • Nice car! Looks like a good base for "restomod"ification. 👍 My first (and to date only 😔) Skyline was an HCR32 2-door so a big fan of these.
