View Full Version : PIT message on Nav screen
10-05-2005, 03:45 AM
I have a 2003 JDM Skyline 350GT.
As it is a Japanese model I don't have the owners manual.
Nissan doesn't import this model to New Zealand.
Mine has the Navigation system but of course the DVD maps are for Japan.
When I first open the screen I get a green rectange with a wrench and the word PIT.
I assume that means that the Vehicle information system thinks it is due for a service.
It has had the schedules service but I guess it needs resetting.
Does the G35 have this show on the screen?
If so how is it reset?
I can photograph the screen if noone can understand what I am seeing.

The US G's have service maintenance warnings pop up on the nav screen. When I click into the screen, I know that I can up the number of miles before it warns me of service, and I believe there is a reset button there as well.
You should be able to get a nav map for your location so that you don't have to look at Japan. Maybe this is the problem as well since it can't figure out where you are on the map.

Can't you just get the US Nav disc? I think you can get that fixed by just getting the US Navi disc. Am I wrong?

I photographed the screen message and e-mailed it to a person in Japan I communicate with at work regularly.
The message related to tyre checking.
I worked out where the maintenance menu was and have figured out how to reset it.
It's quite hard when all text is in Japanese characters and I can only translate parts of it.
But I now know the first bar is engine oil. Second is Oil filter, third is tyres. I'm still trying to work out the bottom one I think it says something about pit sign.
Unfortunately Nissan New Zealand have not introduced the Navigation sytem here so new Nissans sold here don't have it and there is no New Zealand map available on the Nissan DVD.
I don't know if any non Nissan map system DVDs work in these cars.
From what I have seen so far my Skyline is almost identical to the G35.
I love it.
I had a 240Z back in the late 70s and my previous car was the turbo 200SX S14. Unfortunatly it was written off when an idiot in a BMW turned in front of me and I hit them almost head on. The SRS system worked and I walked away.
The Skyline is rare here. I have only seen the one I bought (Silver) and a White one at a car sales. It is interesting because I notice some people in USA want to rebadge the G35 as a Skyline but the Japanese person who had owned the White Skyline I saw had rebadged it as an Infiniti G35. I guess the grass is always greener....
I first saw a G35 last year. One was on display at a mall in San Diego and then I spotted another in Irvine. I didn't think I would be lucky enough to get such a great car here.

LoL, that's funny. I always thought about that, would someone in japan or any country outside the US rebadge the G to the opposite of what we do here.....I guess you answered that for me.
