Hey ...

I recently purchased a 2004 FX35 (black leather interior/NAV system) not sure what the specific package is but in this one the RADIO console is not working but the A/C blows automatically. The RADiO console does make sounds (like the CD player mechanical noises, the nav screen has very low light) however it is not operational. I replaced the [secret hidden] AMPLIFIER and nothing changed.
All fuses are good.
Wire Harness appears operational.
My next move was going to be taking her [FX35] to the CAR AUDIO shop......
??Any pointers friends....

THX 🙏

I agree, it does sound really good. Have you done anything to the exhaust? Any cool upgrades?
Yes , in my living room right now is a huge box with InVida high performance exhaust I can't wait till installed , definitely will be more music to my ear LOL!! Since this is a V8 there are no Mods for them but my Son is going to make a custom cold air intake for me if you have the V6 (sorry if you do ) the sky the limit but very expensive to do if you want it to be ad fast as my V8 I've done alot of work on this car from head to toe so it will run a nother 100000mi thank you for asking....pull up next to me and I'll show you lol .....see ya MyfastFX45

I picked up the tesla style radio from rhino radios. I'm almost done working through the install, still have to figure out the tpms and using the sensors they provided, but so far the radio is bad@ss, and putting a whole lot more power to the speakers. 11.1" tesla screen in dash lol.

What Infinity did you put that in?
08 fx35 awd w/ bose


These guys are very responsive on Facebook messenger for help with the install as well. Hm I guess I meant 11.8. Its big and crisp.

Wow that looks really good nice big screen , damm you did a nice job bro!
Its mostly just plug and play, they provided vehicle specific harnesses, but the factory backup camera I had to cut and tap in with t-taps as their harness was incorrect for it. This radio has preamp out and av in. No need to bypass the parking brake either, its in the settings (which honestly aren't in the best English but I can deal). I had to go up through the glovebox to disconnect a control unit behind passenger dash that was causing my AC to go haywire which was a pain, but it went pretty smooth. I can still plug my factory radio back in at any time, all factory harnesses are maintained after the install.

Hey, it sounds like your head unit is blown btw. I forgot to say that in my first post. Cd changer constantly grinding and dimmed displays are a pretty good symptom of that.
