Nissan Juke 2012

My Nissan Juke has started making a squeaking sound from I think the dashboard every time I go over uneven roads. The best way to describe the sound is like a bird cheeping. Please can someone help as it’s driving me crazy?

Nissan X-Trail

Hi there to everyone. I have a Nissan x-trail 2001 model. On saturday 30/04/2016 i noted that the car does not light the headlights except on bright position. This car is fitted with Xenon lights system. I have checked the fuse, they are all fine. Can someone help what i can do before taking it to an electrician? Thanks.

Answers

the 2001 X-trail was not fitted with Xenon lights at factory so someone has changed them. The Xenon lights fitted at factory are only for dipped beam and the high beam is a H7 bulb. There is only one setting for Xtrail Xenon lights.. off or bright.. that's the point.. they are bright! R Evans from Caerphilly

Nissan Almera

The car jerks and cuts off while driving. No warning. While driving I would see the dashboard lights all turned on, the engine would have cut off at that time. This does not happen frequently, (once in a very long time). Sometimes while driving the car would behave as if I am driving with the handbrake on, you would feel that the engine is behaving as if I stepped on the brake pedal, all of a sudden it will pick up speed and drive normally as if nothing happened. What is the problem? This car started misbehaving last year November. Different mechanics are suspecting different things ranging from pencil coils, sensors, petrol filters and petrol pump. What is the problem? I see many people have similar issues with this car, is it a manufacturer's fault? Car make: Nissan Almera, year 2005, engine capacity: 1.6

Answers

My Nissan Almera cuts quite often. It is a 2004 automatic. Please suggest what could be wrong because my mechanic changed the crank and cam sensors. Already changed filters and oil. Winifred Jeremiah from Grenada

As you have said quite correctly the ogygen sensor, termed in the book as the Lamba sensor is at fault as described when the engine is cold it's fine, the Lamba sensors job is to monitor the fuel system when the tip of the sensor is cold, it gives a reasonably rich mix to the fuel injectors, but when the engine warms up all readings to the management system go out the window, it may starve the engine of fuel, or go the other way and give to much fuel, both will be enough to stop your engine, as all have described above, easy fix unscrew the sensor the one visible on the top of the front pipe with wires attatched, only problem is the management light will stay on, buy a code reader on eBay and switch it off money well spent, cure guarenteed, Colin h South Wales UK Colin H from Vale of Glamorgan

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

Spent a lot of time and money trying to sort this problem Dean, and many many people have the same problem I bought a code reader and narrowed it down component at a time, would be interested to know if your engine management light is on, anyway, this I believe will fix it for you, cheapest part first, change the lamber sensor the top one visible on the top of the front pipe of the exaust you will see the wires going to it take care when you unscrew it, easy fix, PS your engine light may stay on don't worry about it, If this does not cure it look at a second hand throttle pedal sensor sounds complicated no not at all, it clips on to the back of the excellerator if you go to the breakers yard and don't buy new get the complete pedal unit, easy fix, my money is on this fix, you can forget about the engine light, but a cheap code reader for ten pounds will turn it off, nothing is difficult after you have done it once, sort it and remember where you read it first Colin H Colin H from Vale of Glamorgan

Any suggestions please? (2.2 dci Sport)

Answers

It’s on the same fuse line as the interior light fuse Scott Baxter from England

Hi, I have the exact same problem & am away on Staffs with the kids on my own. First my indicators stopped working, I changed that fuse. That blew again now I can only open the drivers door. I changed the ’electronic parts’ fuse & that hasn’t helped. I have nothing showing for the interior light or doors on the fuse diagram, & don’t want to have to go through every one! Thanks Kimberley Griffin from Lincolnshire

Scott you are a life saver! was out on a run in my 07 t30 x trail and having stopped, went to lock the doors with the key fob. Result- alarm sounding with me not able to stop it , just about to remove battery terminal when it stopped.when I tried to lock the doors or unlock them nothing! Only able to unlock drivers door manually using key. Car at least started but had to drive home like this ,( very awkward for passenger). Tried to find info in my owners manual, nothing! same story workshop manual. Jumped on tinternet, found your thread , checked interior light/lights not working (except boot light) found fuse box just above drivers footwell and low and behold the aforesaid interior light fuse had blown (10a) replaced with spare fuse (at base of fuses) and hey presto back in business. I bet any garage would have charged at least an hours labour for changing the fuse , so once again thanks Scott for taking the trouble to pass on your brilliant tip Merv Morgan Glos.

Nissan Primera

Hi! I have a Nissan Primera P10 2.0i SLX (SR20De, 92kW) and for some reason the driver's window does not work at all, anymore. It used to work normally earlier, then it started to work from time to time. I had to move up and down continuously the switch for it to work on either way, but now it doesn't move at all. When I use the switch, I can hear a "knock" sound under the door panel, which is probably the window relay or something like that, so the problem cannot be with the switch. Could the cconnections be just burnt so it doesn't work anymore at all? I think that could be fixed, if I just solder all the connections to the switch and relay...

I actually managed to get this work by myself :D The faulty one was the window power amplifier/relay/whatever it is called. It had some poor solderings in it, so I re-soldered the pins that were going to the connector, and now it works like a charm! Marty from Aberdeenshire

Is the car safe to drive with a stop start system fault warning light ?

Answers

Tom, the stop-start system relates to the qualification for cleaner emissions rating from Euro.. when you pull up at lights the engine goes off.. with a fault in that system it is likely that your engine will just carry on running.. if that's the case.. most other vehicles operate like that anyway, so it will be safe.. however, it may have a long term knock on effect to other sensors and components so you should get round to having it checked out.

Nissan Nv200 2012

Can I replace the standard wheels of my Nissan NV200 with 17" alloys? Will they fit without any rubbing or other issues? I know larger wheels will affect the fuel gauge, speedo etc, but will the larger wheels also make for a smoother ride?

Answers

Hi Steve... I replaced my 5.5 j x 14" NV Combi alloys (175x70x14 tyres) about 6 monts ago. I put on 6.5 j x 16" Team Dynamics with 195x50x16 tyres. My new alloys have the same 114.3 pcd, same 60.1 bore and are 44 offset instead of 45 offset. These alloys are a special order, made in UK, and unused stock from Chrysler... cost me just £160 for four from Merlin Int’l , York. They are a fantastic 10 spoke silver and give a much better ride on the wider tyre. Look at Kouki.co.uk to check your wheel size suitability. My difference is 60 mph is now 60.1 mph... negligable. The original 14" alloys were a bit tragic! Mobile 07836739185 if more detail required... Robert London from Surrey

Trust me, when you replace size of wheel 14 to 17 the wheel size is bigger, but the tyre has smaller side walls. No gains at all except a harder bumpier ride you’ll feel the pot holes etc. more. If you widen the wheel then yes, it gains traction grip etc. It is wheels that make a car or van look better, agreed, but only widths make a difference. Look at F1 racing - small wheels, wide tyre. Neville Denman from Sussex<br />

Hi Steve - I am in the same position and want to upgrade the alloys on my NV200 Camper van. After a lot of looking around and talking to different alloy wheel suppliers, I think it's the tyres that could be the problem, as in achieving the right load weight. Presently the Goodyear tyres on the 14' alloys are classed as 'commercial' and are 650kg rated. I want to go up to 16' wheels. A 205/50/16 can get a 91 load rating 615kg, but this is still a bit low! - Robert what tyres have you got on your van?? Someone else said I could only have 15' alloys with the correct load rated tyres185/60/15 Can anyone shed some more light on this...? ps. Steve - in my opinion (from what I've heard) 17" alloys could be pushing it a bit and the ride will be much harsher! Ed from Shropshire

Nissan Almera Tino

2002 Almera Tino with the 2.2 turbo diesel engine.Acceleration problems.. I have owned this for 4 months (never had a diesel before,only the petrol version ,I am wondering if this is normal) the acceleration is terrible. There is approx four second delay before the engine picks up, even with the accelerator to the floor. Is this normal for this engine? It makes it very dangerous pulling out of junctions, when climbing hills it slows to a walking pace.its fine once your up and running on the motorway and even picks up in 5th gear .I am really puzzled anybody have the same with theirs .The clutch seems fine and not slipping,Thanks

Answers

A 2.2 TD engine should not behave that way.. but it WILL be slower on acceleration than a petrol version that you're used to... However, for it to be as you described "dangerous pulling out of junctions" there is likely to be something not quite right. Firstly.. do you get it serviced annually because clogged fuel filter and/or clogged air filter could easily be your problem. Diesels are great when they work properly but can be a mare to sort out.. and your trouble could be 1. Turbo malfunction including turbo actuator sticking, 2. Turbo vacuum hose damaged, broken or slipped off, 3. EGR valve clogged or malfunctioning, 4 Injector failing or clogged, 5. Signalling issues (faulty wiring), but there could be a host of other faults with switches and sensors too.. best way forward and in order of cheapest first is first to try a load of fuel system cleaner and put in a double recommended dose of the stuff and run a full tank through.. if that doesn't help take it to engine tuning specialist to see if there are any fault codes stored... a tuning specialist will also be able to look at turbo and egr readings in live mode and tell you if those components are issue or if switches and sensors are faulty, then you can approach a mechanic to do the fixes.. last of all..

My locking won't work. the guy who sold it to me just said the key didnt lock it unless it's in the door. while walking away from the car i must've pressed the key. it locked the drivers door but no other. mechanic got the door open but can't tell me what's wrong with the lock. he told me not to lock it in case i get locked out of the car. i can't not be able to lock my car. mechanic only said to take my key to nissan and they'll charge me E80 to diagnose what's wrong with it. I can't afford that and I'm in a fix. can anyone shed any light on this?

try sqiorting some wd40 into the key holes Angela Goncalves Batista from Newport

If the key locks all doors manually but not via push button, then you have a potential of few issues.. control box malfunction, signal fault due to faulty wiring, broken locking mechanism itself or the previous keeper has potched with locking system and messed it up. Basically, Maria, if you can't afford E80 to have the problem fully diagnosed.. you aren't going to be able to afford to have it fixed either. Sorry R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi there on the way drive home all the different signal appear on deskboard and feel the stealing was heavy is it safe to drive for few days , is it expensive to fix ?

Answers

Wan, it is probably safe to drive for a couple of days but if it's related to the power steering you'll continue to have stiff steering.. just like the days before we had power steering. Being a fairly new model vehicle and a Nissan.. I'll bet that it WILL be expensive to fix R Evans from Caerphilly

Nissan Micra C+C 2006

Does anyone know how to adjust the height setting on the driver`s seat of my Nissan Micra C+C? I also want to know if there is a way of raising the seat belt (the bit attached to the car) so it raises the height of the seat belt when closed?

Answers

On the right hand side of the seat is a lever - on my wife's car it's just a case of pumping it to adjust the seat height. Don't think you can alter the position of the seat belt. David Abbott from England

Nissan Terrano Ii

Good day. I had to recharge my Terrano`s battery as I had left the lights on for too long. The battery was taken out of the car. Now the battery is recharged but now the Terri doesn`t want to start. It does swing. I`ve checked all the fuses and all of them are okay. I checked everything. How can something just decide not to work? Everything was working fine. Please does anyone have any advice?

Answers

I had a problem similar, try getting out of the car, lock it, leave for a couple of minutes, unlock and try starting. Apparently the key reboots the electrics Charles from Devon

A red flashing symbol of a car is displaying when the car is locked. I haven't previously noticed this. Is it suggesting a problem?

Answers

This symbol tells you that the Anti Theft System is working. It flashes as a routine once you have stopped and locked the car. Keith from New Zealand

Nissan Navara

My navara yd25 starts in the morning then stops after about 30 seconds. I have to pump diesel using hand pump until it hardens. Starts okey but with black smoke. Same happens after a long stop.

Answers

Something is wrong with your turbo charger, rev it high until the smoke clears as it seems the turbo is not cutting in. Ryno from Namibia

I had a similar problem with a 2007 Nissan Navara TDI 2.5. It ran okay for like 2-3000 km then blew the turbo. Ended up with a runaway engine(very scary situation). My advice- Get your turbo checked either at Nissan Kenya or DT dobie otherwise you'll be buying a new engine soon. Chears Vincent Lamuka from Kenya
