Had a wierd one today - loss of electrics...


Recommended Posts

Drove my son to school - all fine. Got back in the car, pressed the Start / Stop button, a brief flash of life and then completely dead. Wouldn't start for love nor money. Was going to wander off for a paper whilst I waited for the AA and went to try and lock it with the key - fine on the drivers side, not on the passenger side (no key lock that I could see) and the window then dropped and of course, no power, no way of raising it. Great. Just as I was about to have a temper tantrum, I tried the power button again, and hey presto, it came to life again. It wasn't just me - it had definitely lost power because the console clock had lost the time (sat nav unit was still fine). Two more journeys since & it has been fine. Had to do the reset for the windows - but that worked fine.

 

Any ideas? Should I be worried?!!!

 

Cheers,

 

Simon

That was my immediate thought Paul - but....

 

1 - no 'No Key' message came up;

2 - there was total loss of power, not just wouldn't start;

3 - as mine is an 11 plate, I thought it would get the new bits without this problem. I have just checked the label on the steering column and it a version C (48700 JF00C-01-01)

 

I have a cracking knack for making cars break this year.... :innocent:

How odd. It's not something silly like a dodgy connection to the battery?

 

Just a small point but how come you're paying the AA? You should have free RAC cover on the 370Z.

Have heard of a similar problem on one GTR that was a loose earth connection from the factory.
