Thread: 2003 G35 Coupe radio/HVAC problem

    2003 G35 Coupe radio/HVAC problem

    My 2003 G35 Coupe 6MT has the factory Clarion radio/6 CD/cassette unit. It has developed the apparently common problem where the radio display sometimes blanks out (goes dark) at which time the HVAC enters the "Auto AC" mode and blows at the highest fan speed. Neither the radio nor the AC system will respond to any commands from the faceplate buttons, although the radio will still respond to the steering wheel controls. My research indicates that my best course of action is to install an aftermarket radio using the Metra dash trim plate which isolates the HVAC system from the radio. I am willing to live with the radio blanking out, provided that the HVAC still operates properly. Can I keep the factory stereo and install it with the Metra kit? If so, will the HVAC system then continue to operate normally whenever the radio malfunctions?
