Nissan Micra 2004

My Micra cranks but doesn’t start. Upon diagnostic being done it shows P0340: Camshaft Position Senso "A" Circuit (Bank 1 or Single Sensor). I put in genuine Nissan camshaft position sensor in it but no help. A mechanic also tried changing Crankshaft sensor, but that also went in vain. I press full gas pedal to start the car, but this is not usual or good way. I will really appreciate if you could tell what could be the reason for problem. Thanks. (1.2)

My sister in law has a Nissan March that had same problem and she almost spent a grand with mechanics trying to fix and clear the check engine light. Upon further diagnosing we managed to rewire the engine coolant sensor and bingo... it starts in a single half crank... I mean tip start Rukshar Khan from Fiji

I’m afraid it is the timing chain; it stretches over time causing the timing to go out. Not a easy fix, common problem on k12 Micras Afi Aslam from England

Answer this question

Daz, North Lincolnshire

Nissan Micra

I'm considering buying an 03 plate Micra 1.5 dCi SE 5dr. The price seems pretty low £1350 but the dealer admits there is an issue. The oil pressure warning light stays lit for 15 seconds after startup and the computer display advises contacting a Nissan dealer. After 15 seconds the light on the dash goes out and the computer reverts back to normal. It doesn't sound rattly but only heard it start from warm. I've just got a new job working about 30 miles away and need a reliable motor on a budget. Is this going to be a major issue. The dealer has put 500 miles on it with this fault, doesn't know what the problem is and seems confident that it is not a problem - but then he would. I'd appreciate any advice you can offer.

Nissan Navara 2003

My Nissan Navara truck seems to misfire but only in third gear. I know that it can’t be an engine problem because it would do it in every gear so I have come to the conclusion that it must be some sort of gear problem. Any thoughts?

Answers

Hi, I have a 2003 Navara & mine also misses like a pig in third! When I change gear this problems disapears. I am on my second engine after 130000, and at this moment in time my total miles is 167000. I think the trouble could be the injectors because it used to miss when it was hot, but now it can also miss when the engine is cold! I hope this helps. Cheers Steve Linzell from Gloucestershire

Hi, it would also be worth having a diagnostic test by a specialist, as I have been advised by Nissan that it could be the SCV - suction control valve! Hope this helps Steve Linzell from Gloucestershire

I have heard it may be the solinoide or the neutral sensor in the gear box Dan Watson from England

My 2006 ute did this, it was the neutral position sensor. Took half an hour to take out and repace, best way to do is from in cab. Remove cover around gear stick the sensor, is on right hand side looking at it just screws out and in with new one John Brown from Australia

Sounds like the neutral sensor in the gearbox. If you haven’t fixed yet... try holding the gearstick away from you (I think) in 3rd when you lose power and if it is the sensor, you will probably find by doing this that the power will come back! Proving it’s the sensor! It is to do with the fast idle switch as truck will only fast idle in neutral! Hope you’re sorted! Finnerz from Argyllshire

There is a switch on the gearbox ,I it is a neutral position switch ,this affects 3 gear ,hope this helps Kittyconway@btinternet.com from Worcestershire

I have had my Qashqai (Australian ST model) for 2 months and have already had back to the dealership 3 times. First time the BCM wasn't shutting off which was draining my battery. Problem was fixed but a week later it wouldn't start again they replaced the battery but again a week later wouldn't start. Back to the dealership but they couldn't find anything wrong with it. 4 days after getting it back its not starting again. Considering they have no idea what's wrong with it, thought I'd try and find out what could be myself. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

After 11 years with no problems at all, the PS (power steering) light came on and I had to stop as the steering was too heavy. The problem went away almost immediately and roadside assistance gave me the confidence to continue my journey. All seems fine a day later but it was a scary experience and has knocked my confidence in making long journeys. Will it happen again? Can it be easily fixed?

Answers

The electric Power Steering motor is on the way out. This will become more frequent occurence, until you change the part of the steering column that houses the above mentioned electric motor. It is quite costly at the garage or dealer. I had that problem, got the part on E-bay, out of a used vehicle, cost £90, local (friend) mechanic fitted it for another £100, but I have no guarantee how long it will last. It is a known weak point. Good luck! Adam from Cambridgeshire

Nissan Primera

I have just purchased a Nissan Primera and when I hit 2000 rpm it loses power and bunny hops (judders), it runs ok for a while then starts to do it or it does it from the get go. At first we thought it was the air intake valve and this has been replaced but this hasn`t corrected the problem and the engine management light has come on and so we are at a VERY STRESSFUL POINT, so I could do with any help that you can give please?

Answers

Hi Ryan if your check light (eng mngment indicator) is on please get to a garage and ask them to use the consultant tool to diagnose the code. Generally the code indicates the problem, eg: if it`s a sensor issue it will say so, or anything else. The technician will be able to tell the matter based on the indicated code. To me it looks pretty much like the air sensor (somewhat costly matter). dumi from Sri Lanka

I had power loss (sometimes hardly would pull away, sometimes hopping) because the computer got confused because of dirty wiring in the braking lights.

Answers

Water ingress into the wiper motor is a common fault. I had same issue recently but with one of two outcomes. Either has your problem and won't switch off, or as I had stopped working all together. I managed to get a replacement from a scrapyard but it has also now taken in water. I now have your problem and they won't switch off. I 'sorted it' with a screw into the top dashboard and an elastic band which is set to hold the wiper switch in the one wipe manual mode. i.e. in the up position and when I want them off, I move the switch back down manually as the elastic is only strong enough to hold it up but not pull it up...

I 'sorted it' with a screw into the top dashboard and an elastic band which is set to hold the wiper switch in the one wipe manual mode. i.e. in the up position and when I want them off, I move the switch back down manually as the elastic is only strong enough to hold it up but not pull it up... Been like this now for six months and is still working fine... Try it All the best J jazzas from South Lanarkshire

Nissan Qashqai 2012

My Nissan Qashqai`s stop/start has stopped working. I have tried the button that switches it on and off and there`s no change. It worked when I picked it up, 500 miles later it doesn`t. Any ideas? (1.6 dci stop start 2wb)

The sart stop will not work with the air con switched on either. As you asked this question in July, I am assuming that this may be on James from Surrey

Got my Qashqai end of April 2014. Stop / start system only works when it feels like it. Dealers keep telling me there is nothing wrong. But I know there definitely is and it is doing my head in. Nissan customer services are no help at all. Had 11 Nissan cars since 1982, never had any problems. Going back to dealers on Wednesday 29th October . Watch this space. Stu Shaw from Merseyside

I have a Qashqai of a similar age and I also had the same problem soon after I bought it. I went back to my dealer who first explained that the engine must be warm and that also if the battery had run a little low in charge due to Air con etc. Secondly it was explained, and this is the answer because it worked for me, get into the car and press nothing until your seatbelt is on and gear is in neutral. Then press start and drive off. When you come to a stop put gear in neutral, apply handbrake and take your foot off the clutch. Providing you have auto stop start selected it will work. steve from Gloucestershire

Stop start presents a large load on the vehicle`s battery. As a result the vehicle will not stop start on a cold engine especially in colder weather, it is also unlikely to stop start under heavy battery loads: - headlights and fog lights, electrical driven heaters (demists) and seat heaters etc. The vehicle constantly monitors the batteries` condition (its charge state) to ensure it has the ability to execute a restart, and will not stop the engine until it senses the battery is at a suitable level.
