Infiniti G35S Sedan
2007 G35S Sedan Headlight Issue

I just bought my 2007 Infiniti G35S sedan about a month ago and Iíve noticed that the passenger side headlight will blink twice then shut off occasionally. Turning the lights off then back on fixed the issue but it sometimes takes a few times. I took it to a shop and they replaced the ballast but it still persists. The local Infiniti dealership said that replacing the headlights due to broken mounts is the only other option. Now Iíve noticed the drivers side is doing it but much less frequent.

Also the interior and dash lights will get brighter and go back down randomly while idleing, even though I just put a new alternator on.

Has anybody had this happen? Any tips or advice?

First of all, check corroded battery terminals, then hunt for corroded grounds under dash (and maybe even underhood), since you have more than one fault, but not entire car.
Nissan always has an unpainted bar under dash from side to side under dash. It will be a bit rusty. Mount a grounding strap from body to the bar.

Same issue.

I leave my lights on AUTO

Sometimes one side is off while the other side is on.

Turning the dail on and off a few times makes it work like normal.

I'll try swapping the left and right bulbs first

I suspect you have a failing headlight relay.

Is this located behind the battery box and how do you check it?

Meet the same issue with you. I just upgrade my hid to one custom led bulbs for several months and it works prefectly. Since i went to the dealship but was told I need to buy a hid bulbs, 85USD/pc, to make the bulbs look the same light output, I need 2 bulbs, nearly 200 USD.

so I went to the aftermarket hid bulbs, very poor quality, it worked 1 day and went out.

Occasionally, my bro told me to go to the custom LED D2 led bulbs. I went to their website and found the bulbs, this is a custom led bulbs, no need to use the ballast, just plug and play. The light is alomost better than my OEM hid. I LIKE IT SO FAR.
Hope this can help you.
