Auto recirc not working - clean sensor?

Discussion of Infiniti's amazing (and underrated) sport-luxury crossovers, the EX35 and EX37. For 2014, the EX series will be renamed QX50, in line with Ininfiit's new naming conventions.

Auto recirc not working - clean sensor?

Postby Teknical » Sat Aug 25, 2018 11:36 am

Hey guys, my 2014 QX50 has an auto recirculation feature for when there is odor outside of the car. It used to work really well and switch over before I even smelled diesel exhaust from big trucks. It has stopped ever switching over automatically. I found this thread with a lot of discussion, but there was never an answer https://www.infinitiq50.org/forum/probl ... ectly.html (other than for someone who couldn't turn it on with defrost).

I think that sensor needs to be cleaned. Does anyone know where it is?

Furthermore, I'd like to report that we no longer have access to the factory service manuals as these links are now dead: ex35-owner-service-manuals-tsb-s-t503618.html

Here are the best diagrams I can find so far:

With regard to the Quickclean system "
One of the most innovative and certain to be appreciated new technologies is the Quest LE's standard Advanced Climate Control System (ACCS) with Plasmacluster air purifier, Grape Polyphenol Filter and auto recirculation control. The system works three ways to help reduce allergens and unwanted odors within the Quest cabin. Its automatic intake control utilizes sensors to constantly monitor outside odors and automatically closes the intake port to prevent inflow of exhaust fumes or other unpleasant smells into the interior. It then restores fresh air flow automatically when the offensive odors have passed.

The ACCS also employs a Grape Polyphenol Filter to help reduce the number of harmful allergens in the interior air. Finally, an advanced Plasmacluster purifier, generates ions to "scrub" the interior air of unwanted odors--whether they come from outside or inside the vehicle."

>Maybe the sensor and Plasmacluster are inside the heater box? It seems like the sensor should be accessible, I'm guessing near the cabin air filter.
