Did you replace the bank 2 solenoid (side closest to the radiator) with a factory (from the dealer) part or an aftermarket one?

Most of the times, aftermarket electrical parts will not work properly on Nissan/Infiniti vehicles. They never seem to be exactly like the factory parts. I would get a factory solenoid and replace the gasket as well.
