Nissan Primastar

hi, my van is starting to get a bit of a problem. as im driving sometimes the glow plug light comes on and i have a total loss of power. if i pull over, turn engine off for a minute and start back up the problem goes away, but sometimes not for long. it happened yesterday, drove for about 4 miles and i got a loss of power but still drivable, then after another mile or so the light came on and had no power at all. pulled over, turned off and back on and drove another 60 mile or so that day and had no other issues. but today, again after about 4 miles i got loss of power and again about a mile later the light came on. after engine off and back on it happened again about 3 mile later. later on drove all the way home about 10 miles with no issues. does anyone have any answers to what it could be? hopefully an easy fix. thanks. john.

Nissan Micra 2005

Hi, can anyone please explain how I can remove my Nissan Micra`s front headlights, so I can clean the condensation which is inside? The clips are very hard to remove. Is it possible for me to do this instead of taking it to a garage which will cost me £300 each for them to replace them? Thanks.

Answers

Are you sure it is condensation. The reason I ask is because I thought the same on a 2004 SX I have recently bought as a runaround. It was not condensation it was clouding of the outside surface of the headlamp. I purchased a L20 headlamp restore kit from Halfords and it worked a treat. This kit involves wet sanding the surface with four different graded sand paper followed by a final polish. The final result speaks for itself David Miles from Northumberland

IMy daughter and myself have just cleaned the outer face of her Micra headlights. Toothpaste, baking powder & an old toothbrush. Mix toothpaste & powder together & spread over headlight . Rub in with brush. Scrub for as long as you want. Wash off with warm water. If it needs more then go at it again. Cheap and effective. Worked for us. Mark H from Greater Manchester

Answer this question

Terrano 2 2.7TD, Galway

Nissan Terrano Ii

I have a problem with my terrano 2. It not start at all . When I turn the key then sounds a little klick but not more and starter will not turn over. When we pulled it with other car it s starts about first motor turn and runs ok. What or where must look first ? is it possible to have some bad relay from battery changing or it must be a bad starter motor ? Before battery changing it was starting and running very good. If it possible to have a some bad relay then where it can be located ?

Answers

Was it a new battery you fitted? What date is shown on the battery? Is the battery of a high enough rating (Amp/Hr)? Mick from Portugal

Yes new one was this battery 95Ah and it shows still 12.88 volts when test with multimeter. Terrano 2 2.7TD from Galway

It could be the starter motor solenoid (which is attached to the starter motor), or the motor itself but it would be one heck of a coincidence for either to fail as soon as you put a new battery on. Try undoing the battery terminals, cleaning them & the insides of the battery cable clamps with fine grade emery paper then re-connect and try it. If it still doesn't work, and you can access the starter motor with something like a wooden broom handle, give the motor a tap with the broom handle whilst someone is trying to start the car. If that gets it going the fault is within the starter motor. Mick from Portugal

Just had another thought. You say you've got 12.88 volts at the battery, do the test again but instead of testing against the earth terminal on the battery use an exposed unpainted screw or bolt for the earth connection and see if you get less than 12.88 volts, if you do there is a weakness in the earth lead/connection to car body leading to insufficient power to activate the starter, my friend's Terrano wouldn't start with 12.42 volts but their connections were OK, the battery was just ancient (7 years old) and needed replacing. Mick from Portugal

Battery was tested on the car and from the earth closing bolt. Now i have all relays controlled all is ok and all fuses is also ok. It is very difficulty to get that starter off because I have a offraoad built version and now we chek one more time with cables from other car if its not start then we take of starter. When someone have a driver side inside fusebox pictures with fuses it be nice to see that. Terrano 2 2.7TD from Galway

Answer this question

Susan, West Yorkshire

Nissan Micra

I have an intermittent problem with my micra. It starts fine and then when driving the engine will suddenly cut out. The car wil not start again and does not turn over. When we have called the RAC by the time they arrive it will start and then nothing shows up on the diagnostics so the mechanic is at a loss as to what is causing the problem. We can then drive around sometimes for days or weeks with no issues than randomly it will happen again. It has been in the garage but again the mechanic is unable to diagnose the issue as it does not fault while in there. Any ideas?

Answers

You haven't said what year your Micra is, but the throttle bodies on them are known to fail (the internal solder dries out). I'd be looking at that from the description you've given regarding your fault, except the fact it won't turn over suggests something else. Mick from Portugal

Thank you Mick from Portugal. It's a 2002 reg, not sure if that makes a difference to your thinking? Susan from West Yorkshire

When it cuts out and won't restart are the ignition lights on? I'm thinking along the lines of there being a hair-line crack in a circuit board somewhere or a dry solder joint which loses connection once the car warms up breaking the circuit, and then when the car cools down the connection is remade thereby allowing you to continue. The problem is tracing where it's likely to be. If you don't have ignition lights I'd be looking at the ignition barrel, if you do I'd next be looking at the ECU. Solder joints & circuit boards are less reliable since they banned the use of lead in the solder. Mick from Portugal

Yes, the ignition lights are on. A fuse box under the bonnet has been replaced, not sure if this is the ECU, I'm not much of a mechanic, but still had problems after this. So frustrating! Susan from West Yorkshire

The ECU is the electronic brain for the vehicle, it's different from the fuse box. It's quite expensive to replace from Nissan, a second-hand one would be cheaper but would need re-coding to your car. Before spending money on an ECU have you asked the question of any of the Nissan owners forums? Such forums are a wealth of vehicle specific knowledge, you might find something on them.

Hi, my Nissan Qashqai`s dashboard screen has lost all information and now says ’PTR PLACE’. The car itself is still running the same but not displaying things like petrol, mileage and revs etc. What does this mean?

Answers

Hello Gil, I have the same problem. Did you get an answer? Michel from Switzerland

This happened to me today after having to jump start from another vehicle. No idea what "PTR PLACE" actually MEANS, and neither did the Service people at my dealership (nor indeed did they know what to do beyond suggesting that I get AA Home Start to bring the vehicle in for diagnostics), but I tried "re-booting" the computer by taking off the -neg connector on the battery and reattaching it some 10 minutes later. All returned to normal. What it seems to be is not a blown fuse, but a computer overload. Apparently jump starting modern cars with their oh-so-useful computer banks using the time-honoured +POS and -NEG terminals is a no-no: I've been told that one should attach +POS as usual but -NEG to another metal part of the engine. I HAVE NOT TRIED THIS. AND IT SOUNDS DANGEROUS TO ME! Ian from Kent

Nissan Terrano Ii

I recently had the electronic fuel pump reconditioned in my 3.0 SVE TDI Terrano as it was failing. Prior to this work being done the vehicle started first time every time. Since the work I have an intermittent starting problem. When the problem occurs the car starts but it is like it has misfired and the engine management light stays on, sometimes it stalls. I wait about 10 seconds after the glow plug light is out and try it again, generally it will be a perfect start without any lights staying on. I had the glow plugs replaced recently thinking they were a problem, they were in poor condition but the problem still remains. The motor start best when it is cold as hot starts are often poor starts as described. The vehicle runs perfectly and is very reliable and while the problem is annoying I can live with it but if someone out there has remedied this problem I would be great full for your thoughts. Thanks for any help.

Answers

The clue is the replaced pump. Check the electrical connections to the pump - I suspect you have a loose connection giving an intermittent fault. The fuel pressure must be raised instantly on starting, so if the pump is intermittent, it may not have time to raise the fuel pressure for the injectors to work properly, giving you an instant stall.

Hi Janet. Just got the car right - it was a box in the boot. If you take the spare tyre out of the boot and see if there is water in the well. You need to look on the back panel of the boot where your indicators are. There is a box with a plug, undo the plug, remove the box and dry it out using a hair dryer. Dry the plug at both ends, use some WD.40 on the plugs and wire ring, put it back and it should be ok. Hope this helps Dave Haz from England

We've found a solution for our problem but it might not solve yours. In our case we had numerous dead pheasants in the spare tire well. Remove the pheasants, remove the problem! Falula Richards from Greater London

My 56 plate Micra CC has a problem with the boot lock, on switching ignition on, it fires... obviously adding to the water ingress. Driving round with the boot half open. 2" water, check your boot locks! Danny Boo from West Yorkshire

Thank you so so much Dave Haz!! I had to drive home from work this evening with my hazard lights on! As an almost 56 year old woman, I hadn't a clue what to do. I found what you said on here.... and in the dark I took my spare tyre out and holy Moses.... there was about 3 inches of water in there! I dried it up with towels and called my son in law (I'm terrified of electrics!) He did exactly what you said.... we dried the black box wires with the hair dryer and IT WORKED! So Dave Haz.... Thank you so much for your knowledge. It's people like you we women depend on. Here's to you Dave and Thanks. :) Barbara from Cambridgeshire

What is that black box in the boot that I disconnected and dried out??? My hazard lights are back on... but every time I connect the box back they still keep coming on even though I've dried it well. I can drive with this box disconnected but need to know what it's for and not dangerous driving with it out. Anyone know? Barbara from Cambridgeshire

Hi Dave, I had the same problem and bob's your uncle it worked. I have totally disconnected that because I have a Viper alarm installed so I won't need the Nissan Siren box connected. Many Thanks YUsuf Patel from Surrey

Nissan Almera

My car switches off suddenly while driving without warning, then when i turn the ignition on it switches on again as if nothing happened. This is quite scary for us if we are driving on the Highway, it has happened before. What can i do to find the cause? Please help.

Nissan Micra

My Nissan Micra Reg LG03 GRK opens the boot itself and drains the battery when garaged or parked for any length of time. Two reasons have been suggested for this fault - one is the failure of a component for which I have been quoted £600 plus labour costs to put it right - a lot for an old car. The other suggestion is that it is the failure of the independent switch system on the boot handle which is causing the problem: this would be far cheaper to put right I think. Obviously I don't want to spend money then find I have to repair it again! Final question - was this boot opening problem a design fault on this model which was acknowledged by Nissan and called in for repair? Thank you in anticipation. B.May

hi i have heard a couple of answers to this first the boot press button on the boot is faulty (common fault) get a second hand one from e-bay .Second it could be the wiring in the boot where it goes into the body hope this is helpfull john barton from Merseyside

Yes, it was a recall. Check whether the car was ever taken to Nissan under re-call for a new boot switch. It's a common problem. The battery dies very quickly because when the boot unlatches the light comes on. Don't know whether it's too late for the re-call though! Good luck Carol from East Sussex
