    That’s interesting fact. How about smell? Is ITG box less fuel smell than foam filter? Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile

    Worn out key re-cut

    Thanks for the info! I still have original key with the code engraved as A1234 format. I will check with locksmith to cut the new key once ebay spair key arrived. By the way, I love Dave Lee Roth! When I was in Sendai, Japan, he came for Dave Lee Roth band tour :-) When I saw him next time was, at Las Vegas. He was a comedian at that time..... The last time I saw him at "A Different Kind of Truth tour" at San Jose, CA. He couldn't JUMP!

    Engine crank no start

    Welcome to classic Z forum. " I ended up going under the car and checking the voltage at the fuel pump while cranking and I had 0 volts going to the pump itself." Since you already identify the problem that you don't get any voltage, there might be shorting wire for the fuel pump somewhere. The wire to the fuel pump runs passenger side between seat and door. flip the carpet to check the wire. And as basic information, check FSM. http://www.xenonzcar.com/s30/fsm.html BE Body Electrical.pdf is the one you need to check. You can find relay at passenger side kick panel.
  7. I'm wondering if anyone successfully re-cut key based on the key code from worn out original key? Someone said Dealer only store 10 years of data in the computer, the others say using VIN number lockthmith can re-cut new key. http://forums.nicoclub.com/key-cutting-by-vin-t301243.html My key is worn out and it easily falls off while running engine. I have spare ignition module, but I want to use the original key for door lock and ignition. There is a code on the key one letter and 4 digit number. I wonder whether I can re-cut based on the code somewhere. By the way, this key in the photo is from junkyard old 260z. You can't steal my car if someone successfully re-cut key for this :-)

    Carpet Fix

    There is no best way since Nissan does not sell carpet kit. You can purchase carpet kit at ebay that what I installed.
  9. Red light is brake warning light. Brake is not done yet... I used regular SPAL power window kit. The lock to roll up feature is from Viper alarm with Window module 529T. https://www.amazon.com/Install-Essentials-529T-Window-Module/dp/B0009SWLEQ
