I have Almera Tino 2005 model s-trim (with the screen built in to the dash) my question is this: Is it possible to fit the reverse camera that comes as standard on the SE models and up? In other words, is all the wiring/loom there ready and waiting for the camera to be fitted and would the new style dash controls need a software upgrade to allow the camera to automagically turn the screen on when reverse is selected?

Nissan Almera Tino

Anyone an idea where the fuel pump is located on the Tino 2.2 DCi engine. I need to replace the Suction Control Valve. Can't find it on the engine. Any help, thanks in advance

Answers

Hi Barry, the scv valve can be found down at the back of the engineb and is impossible to see without a mirror. To replace it you will need to remove the windscreen wiper arms then the black grill the the wiper motor assembly then the metal tray underneath. Now you can see down behind the engine in the centre, you will need a torch and mirror, look for the plug and cable the valve is under the plug, unplug, two Allen screws and its out, but its not easy as you have to lay face down across the engine to get to the screws. Good luck Brian brian from Cumbria

i have a cd stuck press eject just starts clicking

Answers

I have/had this as well......was advised on a Nissan help forum to use a thin plastic instrument ( plastic knife or such) and try to get it under the cd in the player and gently prise it up a lttle at the same time pressing the eject button ,another option was to put another cd in ,making it 2 in the drive, and try to eject them . This may work for some but not mine, now have no clicking so i guess its completely u/s , and its too much of a task to try and get the cd player out of the console, but you could try the above as a last resort .

Nissan Almera Tino

Car keeps cutting out whilst driving and the management light comes on, I have to leave it for 5 mins and then it restarts and may or may not cut out again on the journey. The speed or distance driven before it cuts out does not make a difference. I have paid two separate garages for diagnostics but no fault shows up and the management light has not come on. The second garage kept the car for a week and he drove it 3 days without a problem but the next time he took the car out it cut out twice. He was very thorough but said he had to admit defeat and just didn't know what the problem was. The only suggestion he had was that it could well be the ECU. I only bought the car privately a few months back and the problem started the following day, unfortunately for me it was bought as seen so nothing I can do. I would appreciate any help anyone can give. Regards Jeanie

Answers

Jeanie - had this problem twice now on my 04 Tino 1.8SE. Both times it was the Crankshaft Sensor that was faulty. It only failed when the engine had been running warm and during hotter conditions ( heat related sensor failure I think ). A new manufacturer's sensor solved this about 3 years ago and not had a problem since, Steve from Nottinghamshire

Could well be your crankshaft sensor. Awkward to get at. It's just a switch that pops in and out. Mister Auto may probably have a reasonably priced one. Under £20. Low, battery can cause the switch to fail. Good advice on YouTube. Hope you get it sorted. this is an inexpensive fix!! David Wigley from Yorkshire

Hi, I have a Nissan Almera Tino 2001 reg. I seem to have a leak. I keep finding my driver`s side footwell and both the floor storage spaces at the back full of water. I`ve had the carpet up and had the scuttle grill off to check for blockages but I couldn't see any. I`ve also checked the sunroof and the drains seem clear, could you help me please?

Answers

Hi James, Did you find the source of your Almera Tino driver's side footwell leak? My Tino has a similar problem. Have checked obvious places where water might enter without success. Had windscreen removed and refitted and the fitter thought that was the likely source. But after more rain not even Cumbrian rain(!) the carpet is soaked again, just having got it dry! Sunroof drains are clear, scuttle looks clear of water. A mystery! Where was the water entering your Tino? Any help much appreciated. KInd regards, Rob.

Hi rob,yes I found the leak in the end,my wife sat in the car wile I had a hosepipe running constantly over the car,turned out it was pouring in through the sunroof seems and filling the car full of water. james from Cumbria

Hi James, Thanks for your quick reply. Coming around to the hosepipe suggestion as the only way to see where the water might be entering. Doesn't appear to be the sunroof but with water you never can be sure! Windscreen guy commented Nissan sunroofs are not usually troublesome. But there are always exceptions!

we have a 2005 tino 1.8 petrol the fuel economy was 34.5 mpg but all of a sudden is doing 22mpg any ideas

Answers

It could be a number of things, what I would check in no particular order, are the lamda sensors (o2 sensor). Also the mass airflow sensor. Check for leaks from the vacuum hose. It could mean that the throttle body needs cleaning/changing or the EGR valve needs replacing. Lamda sensors are usually pretty expensive especially if it's post cat. The cheapest option is smoke test to check for any leaks and replacing the necessary hoses if a leak is found. Craig from Lincolnshire

Hi I have a problem with my Nissan tino the airbag light doesn't come off is there anyone who have ever experienced the same thing?

Answers

I had this same problem and it turned out to be a dodgy connection under the passenger seat. Unplug the connector and give it a clean with electrical cleaner and plug it back in. That may solve the problem. gareth from Lancashire

To reset the airbag warning light do this ... f you have the airbag light blinking here is how to reset it: 1. Turn the key from off to on. 2. Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly. 3. Count to 5 (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi . . . .) 4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times. 5. Now turn the key on and watch the light. It will start blinking in a different, slower manner. This is diagnostic mode. You can watch this for a little while, no hurry. 6. Now turn the key off again, Count to 5 like in step 3 again, and turn back on. If the procedure worked, the airbag light will not be flashing. If it does not work the first time, just repeat the steps again. Dont forget to check the wire connecters under the passenger seat, if the seat s regulary moved it loosens the connector .

I have a Nissan Tino S Automatic 1.8 . ( 2003 ) . I bought it secondhand in 2009 and have had no problems - except that I have lots of problems with condensation inside the car. There doesn't seem to be any water collecting in the front footwells and , although I have had the windscreen replaced in Oct. 2010 .\ I wonder if you can help

Answers

Hi. I have the same problem 90% of time. I did have a leak which has now been solved and the car is dry. The condensation seems worse when I have driven the car with the heater on and then parked up all day. The only possible explanation I have come up with is the car's interior temperature reacting with the outside varying temperature! Else I'm at a loss for explanation. H. Jones from Bath and North East Somerset
