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

Answers

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

Nissan Qashqai

The heater on the passenger side is not working, The drivers side needs to be up at hi setting in order to feel any warmth. I keep the passenger side vents closed as they blow out cold air. The car is freezing all the time. I've had the car since new and it is just out of warranty. I find it to be a great car otherwise. It handles really well on the road and is a joy to drive. This has been my first real problem with it.

Answers

I had the same problem (my Qashqai is LHD but principle's the same). I did not realise that the passenger side had no heat until I drove back to the UK from Greece last Christmas, my wife was not happy! I don't normally need heat in Greece even in winter. The local Nissan dealer did not have a clue and said he needed to remove the dashboard to investigate...I declined. Subsequently I bought an endoscope to use with my iPad to investigate myself. I found that on the driver`s side, the screen that moves to either direct air through the heating matrix or avoid the matrix moved completely when I adjusted the control from LO to HI. However, when I looked at the passenger side the screen only moved a couple of centimetres so no air was going through the heating matrix. I decided either the screen was jamming on something or the actuator that moves the screen was faulty. I set the heating control to LO. I removed the glovebox and tube that feeds air into the footwell to get access to the actuator. I disconnected the lead to the actuator and removed it. I then manually moved the spindle that moves the screen. I felt no resistance and the spindle moved the screen through its whole range of movement, so nothing was jamming the screen. I then plugged in the actuator and moved the heating control from LO to HI and back to LO. The actuator moved correctly, the full range of movement. I refitted the actuator and tested the heating....it worked! I refitted everything, tested again and still all worked as it should. I did read somewhere on the web that resetting the actuator by disconnecting and reconnecting the cable worked for someone else and it does seem to have worked in my case. Good luck...Dave Dave Rowlinson from Greece

That worked brilliant for me. wasn't blowing hot air in the passengerside. removed the dash panel at the footwell. found actuator, wasn't doing anything.unplugged the connector at the actuator and plugged back on. worked magic. got it working.. Corinthians from Lancashire

Worked for me too. I removed the panel adjacent to the passengers right calf and then with my head in the footwell i removed a panel under the glove box. Where these two panels met i could see a red cogwheel (the spindle)and a black box with a fan shaped cog on it. This is the actuator. Then performed the routine described by my learned friend above. Worked beautifully Philip from Bedfordshire

Nissan Qashqai

My qashqai keeps getting a flat battery it's been to the garage twice and they say that they can't find any faults, but yet it still continues to drain, I drove the car this morning down my road to my house to load it up, then went to start the car again and battery dead, lifted up the bonnet and the alarm can be heard, I know the sound is the alarm because the garage have told me this much. So having to get jump started yet again any ideas what could be causing this as don't leave any lights on and always lock the car and no flies etc. In car as it hasn't just happened once so now wondering if alarm could be faulty. Anyone had same problem and found the reason?

I had a Navara from new after 2 1/2 years the battery kept draining . After several visits to the Nissan dealer the fault was located in the wiring loom in the engin compartment , water had entered into the loom via a missing seal in the bulkhead,traveled down the loom over time to the fuse box and rotted some contacts. Thus shorting out and draining the battery. The car was in the repair shop for 4 months due to the first set of looms from Japan being the wrong ones. Luckily it was still under warranty . I sold the Vehicle shortly after to another Nissan dealer Gary from Lancashire

Nissan Navara 2004

Hi there, my Nissan Navara has started hesitating on acceleration and smoking badly. It also keeps cutting out now and again. I`ve been told it could be the injectors. Can anyone help? Thanks. (d22)

Answers

Hello, I am also going through a similar problem at present where my local dealer is struggling to find a solution. So far we have replaced the fuel pump and the common rail pressure sensor. As I am in the verge of losing hopes on this, please share any findings you come accross with Marlon Diasz from Middlesex

I own a Fiat Croma 1.9JTD 2006 which is a very good car even though Clarkson ran it down. I had the same sort of problem in it. I was on M25 and had to get on to the crawler lane because I was literally crawling. Managed to get to my work place with difficulty and then could not start. RAC diagnosed it as the EGR valve which was cleaned and put back. This made the car start but at once I felt that the power was not there. I managed to drive home to Aylesbury where I live.The Fiat dealer in my area replaced the EGR valve but the problem did not resolve. Then they reprogrammed the DPF filter which did the trick. DPF is a real menace. When blocked it reduced power by some feed back mechanism. I read somewhere that this is one of those rare situations bad driving helps. After a few hundred miles say, running on the 3rd for a couple of miles will burn the carbon in the DPF and unblock it. I had no trouble since. How I ran in to Navara was when I was looking for what my brother called the rear O2 sensor for his 2007 Navara out law. He lives in Sri Lanka and has got eternal trouble with his exhaust system especially the DPF. I saw on your forum some guys saying that the Navara has not got a oxygen sensor. Is it right? My personal solution to the DPF problem will be to replace it with an ’ordinary silencer chamber’ and reprogramme the car computer to derecognize it Jan Mourinho from England

This problem is very common here in Chile where diesel fuel is not very good. The best solution is to run it hard for about 15-20 minutes (high speed) and the carbon deposits will be blown out. Since these vehicles have are turbo powered, they like to be high rev and not babied. If you do run it at slow rpms, these deposits will accumulate and black smoke will be seen Arturo Camacho from Chile

Hi, I have just fixed a 2010 D40 Navara with a similar problem, slow to accelerate and black smoke under load, My fix was with the EGR unit, there is a butterfly inside that has a sealing ring on it that had some how come off the butterfly, so this caused an excess of exhaust gas to enter the inlet all the time and when the turbo produced boost, that pressure would leak back through the EGR valve into the exhaust, The diagnostic scans did not pick up any unusual readings except for the throttle control was lower than normal, but did not read as a fault code.hope this helps Geoff Stewart from New Zealand

Nissan X-Trail 2011

Apart from wondering about cvt transmissions long term in general, I love my Nissan X-Trail, EXCEPT for the highly annoying rattle and creak in the tailgate. It’s been back to the dealers at least 6 times. They insist it`s either not present when they test drive or if it is they’ve resolved it, but not so. Recently when on holidays we hired an X-Trail and guess what, the same noise. I know it doesn’t affect driveability but it is driving me nuts!! Has anyone come across this issue and a cure? I would be grateful for any tips. Cheers. (2.5 4wd petrol cvt)

Nissan X-Trail

Hi I have a nissan x trail 2.2 dci diesel T30 yd22eti I have a water leak under the engine driver side anyone know what could be the problem thanks

Answers

Vicky, on the T30 X-trail there are a few possibilities. Firstly, are you sure it is water, not coolant?? If it turns out to be coolant, then the coolant pump is in the lower area towards the front on the driver's side of the engine. That could be leaking or any of the pipes that lead to or front the coolant pump. If it is water then it potentially could be condensate from the aircon system dropping out.. venting.. if so this is normal. It could also be a leak from the windscreen washer system.,. the bottle, the pump or any of the pipes that lead from it.. the bottle is in the front drivers side area too and the pipes go from it to the washer jets on the bonnet. pipes perish and leak... and out of all the above are the cheapest to change if found defective.

Have you tried pressing the reset switch under the bonnet, top right hand side of the engine bay. Press down on the black round rubber. If you have had the front bumper of or had a tap at the front it may cause this cut out switch to activate. GDUGGLEBY from Dumfries and Galloway

Nissan Qashqai

On 1 May 2016 at about 1745 hours, I had some problem starting my car (Qashqai 1.2) at a shopping mall. I parked my car at about 1645 hours, just within 1 hour my car could start. There are warnings came stating 1) No Key Detection 2) Chasis Control System fault can anyone tells me what is the problem with my car? I contacted the 24hr service recovery and my battery was replaced and all back to normal. The engine can start and no other problems occur. But I am wondering if the problems still exist? Will it lead to other problem. I was advice to send my car to the service Centre and had it check. Today is a Sunday holiday and Monday is a Public holiday I could not book any slot for them to check, however I will just walk in to satisfies my worries and have my car check. Thank you.

Hi. I had the same problem with vibration from the belt and tensioner under load. (2004 2L motor). I changed the belt tensioner twice without solving the problem. It was the clutch pulley on the alternator. Cost a fraction to replace. Problem resolved immediately. Thanks. Vernon. South Africa Vernon from South Africa
