Major Electrical Problem???
I am in need for a little advice or comfort after my 2004 g35 6mt had a major problem. I was driving home last night and all of a sudden it went to full throttle and to the rev limiter. I shut it down, waited a minute to catch my breath and tried a restart. Same thing...it went WOT again. I shut it down, opened the hood and was met with the putrid smell of electrical...It's was towed back to my garage and I'm trying to see and obvious signs of were the problem may be...I removed the intake up to the throttle body and when I turn the key to the on position the butterfly stayed in the closed position,and when I pressed on the accelerator the butterfly opened and closed what appeared to be normally, however there is a high pitched squeal sound coming from the throttle body control unit, and I know this is not a normal sound...
A voltage check in the connector showed a ground condition were there should have been 12 volts. After replacing the Throttle Body Unit I turned the key to the on position and the same squeal sound was heard. No one at Inifiniti has heard of the Throttle going Wide open, and it seems to me that the only thing that would cause this would be a short somewhere which may be explained by the obvious smell of electrical. I traced the wiring as best I could and can't find any obvious signs if arc thru on the wiring...I'm lost at this point. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm trying to do this as cost effectively as possible after being out of work for the past year, but I need the car. Thanks
See item #15 on how this problem was resolved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
