The light on the dash comes on reading there is not key in the car when in fact there is. It happens with both my fobs. Now, the car won't even start and I have to use the key to get inside it. Happened when stationary then while driving.

The problem: Defective electronic steering column lock (escl) on 12/01/16 I had to have my vehicle towed to a local Nissan dealer after it became disabled by what I was advised was the failure of the escl unit. The cost of the repairs totaled $1094.20. In addition, due to the lateness of the hour I arrived at the dealership, I was without the use of my vehicle that evening through midday of the following day. My own on-line research led me to the discovery that this mechanical failure is a known issue to Nissan, and there had been a tsb campaign a few years prior that I had not been notified of or included in by the Nissan Corp. I have been a loyal Nissan consumer for years, and my current vehicle that was affected by this breakdown, is actually my fourth "Z" vehicle. I am very disappointed and displeased by how Nissan has chosen to handle this issue.

The dashboard on my 370Z 2010 is all cracked up, I have looked at many other 370Z and they are all with the same issue. I went to the dealer and they said that they have received many complaints and are awaiting a recall from factory.

My dash board is starting to melt. It has an oily residue that creates an bright glare in daytime driving making it hard to see safely.

My Nissan 370Z is out of commission for a confirmed escl failure - a known recall part!!! Nissan refuses to help me in anyway. The vehicle would not start, I was told it had to be taken to a dealer before they would do anything to help me. I had it towed 35miles out of pocket. The technicians confirmed the escl failure. Nissan Consumer Affairs refused to do anything for me at all.

So I have a 2010 370Z (31K miles) and it has been running great up until yesterday. I got in to start it and it wouldnżT start. The only thing I noticed was the intelligent key system warning light was on. Just to be sure, I checked the battery in my remote and, of course, also put the remote in the override slot and nothing. The battery in the car is also fine. Everything else seamed to work, lights, horn, doors unlock/lock. The start button said lock and it would not even turn to accessory mode. Steering wheel was in the un-locked position. Doing a little research online Iżve found that it is more than likely a steering wheel lock problem that leads to the intelligent power distribution module. Apparently this is a fairly common problem and it seems to happen around 30-40K miles. So now I have the pleasure of having my car towed to the dealership so they can charge me (their estimate) $1500! I love my car but this is a problem that Nissan should deal with. There needs to be a recall on this!

Was driving on the service road as I exited off the highway and I lost clutch pressure. This is a very common problem in the 370Z and Nissan needs to fix this. There are hundreds of owners who have had this issue. I was left stranded on the service road with no clutch pressure.
