Hi i am thinking of buying a 2004 micra sx. It has done 37,000 miles with 3 service stamps. Everything seems ok with the car, I am going to be buying it for £1700. It's 10 years old. I haven't had much luck with cars in the past. If anyone knows anything good or bad about the micra please comment and let me know. Thanks :)

Nissan Micra

Hello, I have a Nissan Micra k11 16valve 1000cc running on injection and it won't run? It's got half a tank of fuel, the fuel pump is pumping fuel into the injectors, it`s got a spark on all 4 but spark plugs are bone dry? We put brake cleaner in the manifold and it fires straight up then dies once it's burnt the brake cleaner, so it`s not running on its own fuel. It's a chipped loom and ecu, bhp 54, pre face lift. I need to know how to cure it as I'm meant to be racing it in January? Cheers

Nissan Micra

There seems to be a common problem with Battery draining. My car is 2003,5dr,auto. My mechanic has not charged me a penny because he cannot find a fault. When the battery is drained now he comes around to the house to check the car before taking it back to his garage. He has checked with other garages/mechanics and the local Nissan Dealer and nobody has heard of the problem but now I have discovered that other owners have similar faults. So there is a Nissan Micra 2003 problem. Like other owners, the battery is new, the charge is held for a day or four, the discharge is within tolerances, the ammeter is charging AOK, and the drain 'rate' is acceptable ---and the interior light bulbs have been removed. Very very dispiriting

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.

Answers

The standard radio has a code. If you are changing the battery (I replaced mine recently) you can connect another battery with jump leads before removing the main battery. Fit new battery, remove jump-lead battery. That way you don't have to put the code in again ray from Kent

The LCD display problem is caused by the degradation of the electrical connection between the conductive connections on the internal rear lower edge of the display and corresponding connections on the PCB driving this display from the radio‚Äôs circuit board. This multiple connection between is made by a thin rubbery conductive gasket (Elastomer) about the size of a match stick. The displays construction squashes this elastomer between the display and the board. It is however susceptible to failure. This manifest itself as intermittent loss of the part of the display to eventual complete failure. As for fixing it, not very likely I am afraid replacement parts will no longer be available, removal and stripping down the radio, cleaning the contacts on the PCB and the glass display and the elastomer with isopropanol (wearing cotton gloves to avoid contamination with grease from your hands) and rebuilding the unit, fixes it sometimes but generally not for long. I believe it is a standard size radio fitting so if you can afford it fit a new radio I have used Highway H240Di series before, seem excellent its over £100 but all the usual radio stations and dab and blue tooth (hands free phone) and aux socket, best results with internal screen mount dab radio aerial.

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?

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

I have noticed a red light about 45degrees down and to the right of the steering wheel, positioned next to the button that adjusts the wing mirrors. I have only noticed it recently. Usually when in a driving position, it is obscured from view by the positioning of the wheel and my arm. I don't know if it has always been there and I just hadn't noticed or whether it is a new light. I have no idea what it means- can anyone enlighten me?

Nissan Micra

Dear Helpers I have just had the distributor cap on my Nissan Micra 1999 replaced, costing me over £300, last week. However, when I took the car out today, it seemed that the car kept losing power / juddering and then at one point the engine light began to flash orange and it lost power completely. I was able to pull over and restart the car, to get it home. However, having spent such a great deal already on a car costing £750, I'm in a dilemma about how to deal with this. Is it the garage's obligation to ensure the part they sold me (telling me that was what the problem was), fixes the issue I originally went to them about and also are you able to suggest what might be the problem, technically please? Any help greatly appreciated. Best Wishes Joe
