Have you tried fitting a new airflow meter? A faulty airflow meter usually doesn't show any faults. Try disconnecting the airflow meter and take it for a short drive, if the power comes back, then you should know. Martin from Namibia

I had the same problem, felt really underpowered and lifeless, especially up hills. I took the airflow meter out (2 screws) and checked the little lamp type filament wires that were visible through the slot. They were black so I sprayed them with WD40 till they were clean, wow what a difference that made, I can now pull my caravan up hills in 5th whereas it struggled on its own in 3rd, took all of 10 minutes Mark shepherd from Derbyshire

Nissan X-Trail

Hi all, I recently bought a used (refurbished) X-trail 2005 from a car dealer. As I was checking out the power windows one day I pushed the window lock button, which should lock all but the driver's seat window. What happened is that now the windows of the back seat open till the half position. They close just fine, but they won't open all the way. What can I do? I already depressed the lock button-it's back in its normal position, but it didn't help. Before I pressed the lock button the windows were working just fine. Need help-thanks it advance

Nissan Terrano Ii

Hiya guys. I could do with a little help. I have a Nissan Mistral import and it won`t stay in overdrive. It jumps in and out, hot and cold, no rhyme or reason to the way it does it. I have read advice on forum and done it all. I have checked everything possible. I`ve changed all fluids twice. The only thing I haven`t done is read the engine ecu, no-one round here has a scanner to read it and my local Nissan don`t want to know. Is it possible to have a fault in the ecu? I have been told I need a jodb scanner to read it, not an obd. I bought an obd scanner but that just comes up link error because it isn`t compatible. Any views would be welcomed, thanks very much. My Mistral is a 1996 2.7 turbo

Answers

Hi, the auto trans will only go into overdrive once the auto has warmed up so any checks should be done only when its up to normal running temp, have you checked the switch and the wiring on the shifter, every time the shifter is moved its moving those wires going up to the switch, if its not that i would make sure the engine is running warm enough and not to cold (thermostat stuck open?) hope this helps Shaun Sandford from New Zealand

Nissan Almera

Hi I have Almera Flare 1.5 2004 the seat belt light keep flashing even my seat belt (driver side) is on or off. I tried cleaning the the latch but still the light is flashing . what could have been the problem?

Answers

Reset the code - common fault in the airbag/seatbelt light. It will fail the MOT so fix the error. The simplest way I found was by turning the ignition on (but not starting the engine) so the warning lights light up. As soon as they go out..(approx 5-7 secs) switch the ignition off, wait approx 3 secs then switch to your lights again, then off, 3 secs etc....Do this 3 times and when you finally start the engine this has hopefully reset and cleared the fault. eddy from Falkirk

I agree, mine was a 2005 model which should have been okay with the headlights, so was outside the recall date for that fault. High beam was great but on dipped you couldn`t see diddly.

Nissan Micra

Went to start my car today and for some reason the PS light came on. There is also a "spanner" next to the mileage shown on the dash. The car will not start but merely sounds like it has a nasty cough and then cuts out. Also the Engine Management light comes on and the Oil light too. The car is a 10 plate and has done less than 10k in mileage - I haven`t even driven it myself as it was my aunty's car but she died so the car has been sitting for around 6 months, but it has been turned over regularly. As I say it just seems strange that this has happened all of a sudden as it always started before, come rain, sleet or snow. Any ideas or information would be brill, thank you

Tony Stoddart, Spain

Nissan X-Trail

bought car in May from small garage. Allegedly 106K on clock. Driving back on motorway to base the car lost power, then regained it in fits and starts. (not sure how long the garage had the car standing before sale)Think I may have been on an upwards slope when returning. Normal driving power resumed almost immediately. Next few journeys no issues. Took car on long run to test issues for before short guarantee runs out. Drove wonderfully to destination- hairpins, straights,uphill and down. Traffic and empty roads. Parked overnight. Next day started first time and then juddered not responding to accelerator. Went slow, almost stopping then accelerated, then slow. Once on open road after about an hour the 'problem' went and normal service was resumed. Decided to park on same down slope that night wondering if the angle might be causing some issue. Same problem exactly the next day although this time it took longer to smooth out. Will park on the level tonight to see if this changes anything. Have seen issues related to fuel filter/ air in pipes discussed in threads. Feels to me as a novice that it is a fuel starvation issue but I panic that it could be something more major and I only have a month left on warranty. Any help welcomed as garage will no doubt make light of it and it won't play up when I take it!

Answers

Tony, please read preceding questions and answers in this thread especially about the SCV (suction control valve) and MAF sensor issues this engine is (in)famous for...... Print some of these out and Google others and shove them in the face of the seller and tell him to fix it under the warranty. John Smith from New Zealand

first problem was lack of power and failure to respond to accelerator. Under warranty they handed the car to a diesel injection specialist who CLEANED a pump somewhere. Garage wouldn't give me written detail and mechanic just said he had cleaned 'it'. Worked perfectly afterwards. THEN a friend who was following me said that they saw black smoke when they assumed I had changed gear. Under warranty took it back and again it seems that the solution is/was. clean EGR valve. Local mechanic said they are a waste of space and are only there for the environment. Smoke now gone, running perfectly so I await the next 'incident'. I have a feeling that the car should have had a good clean as there are pumps and filters everywhere. Tony Stoddart from Spain

Nissan Micra 2002

My Nissan Micra`s heater fan will only work on full power setting. What can I do to correct this please? (1 litre 2002)

Answers

THE REASON FOR THE FAN WORKING ON NUMBER 4 ONLY IS DEFINATELY THE FAULT OF THE HEATER BLOWER RESISTOR - VERY COMMON. YOU WILL FIND IT NEXT TO THE BLOWER MOTOR WHICH YOU WILL SEE IF YOU LOOK FROM THE FLOOR UP AT THE BACK OF THE GLOVE BOX - YOU WILL SEE A PLUG WITH ABOUT 4 WIRES AND THE RESISTOR IS HELD IN BY 2 SCREWS. TAKE IT OUT AND IT CAN SOMETIMES BE FIXED WITH SOME SOLDER - IF NOT GET A SECOND HAND ONE. MR. BEWS from Orkney Islands

Mr Bews is exactly correct. Mine was the same when I bought it. I took it out, and it has a small fuzeable link on the circuit board that sticks up slightly. Scrape it off and reveal some good shiney circuit beneath. Then a drop of solder will be a permanent fix. Just a word of warning, when you test the repair, just do this for a few seconds if the card is not back in its holder. The reason is it gets very hot, very quickly, and would melt. The holder it is placed into has the cool air from the fan blowing over it to avoid this problem when its working in place. Tony from Leicestershire

Hi, I have a Nissan Micra 53 reg. I got a new radio fitted yesterday, and since then the screen above which has the date, time, trip comp etc has not been working. It appears a cable has been left disconnected. I rang Halfords, and asked them if I could bring it in to reconnect the cable, however the guy I spoke to told me the screen would get input from my old radio and that's why it no longer works. Is this the case? It doesn't make sense to me as I doubt it gets the trip comp details from the radio.

Answers

He is wrong, I changed my own radio and it made no difference to the trip computer etc. Take it back and insist they correct it Tony from Leicestershire

When I press the brake the right indicator won't work. I bought indicator bulbs thinking this was what was needed but to find out it isn't. Any solutions please?

Answers

Sounds like just a loose earth wire to the rear light cluster. Just check all the connections and clean as needed Tony from Leicestershire

Hi my airbag warning light was on, so took it to Nissan who said they cannot do it under warranty as it looks like I shoved something under the seat. Now I know it isn't my fault as I won't put anything under the driver`s seats. Anyway they are trying to charge me over £1000 for fixing it. I am going to take it elsewhere to do it as I`m not paying that. Does anyone have any ideas of a cheaper fix? Can it be done cheaper? Something to do with the wire housing?

If you are near Huddersfield, I know of an auto electrician who would probably be able to resolve your problem. Ian from West Yorkshire
