Customer Question

Just reading your post on the dash lights flickering when headlights come on. Then this morning on my way to work, the VDC off and Slip lights came on. I have no idea if it's related, but my cd system has started having issues..not very often, but a cd that is perfectly fine will have a skip.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I had the IPDM replaced several years ago because my infiniti qx56 just died. It was fixed on a recall. Then when the dash lights started flickering over a year ago, we replaced it again...and it did nothing. The lights at the beginning would just dim. Now it's to the point when they will go completely out while driving...and if I turn my headlights off, the dash lights come right back on.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Infiniti Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).

I believe I know what your issue is, I would just like a Volt Meter to check it to be sure.

I don't have a volt meter, but I believe my dad does and I'm going to see him tonight, so I'll check it. What am I looking for or at?
Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.

I think you have a Alternator not charging properly. So I would like you to connect it to the Battery with the truck running, Lights and AC off and see what your voltage readings are?

Then turn the head lights on and AC and recheck your voltage readings and let me know what you find.

Checking in to see how you made out with the check I asked you to make?
