Answer this question

Les Mitchell, Cheshire

Nissan Micra

Recently had a fuse blow on the cigarette lighter so checked fuses found one blown and replaced same. However now the radio/audio has a problem. When you first switch car on the following is displayed. After Nissan logo fades display reads as follows, System is verifying installation ( this remains visable for 5 mins and the controls do not work) next Secure system is locked GREEN - this remains on but if you then press setup the radio/audio all work normally for 15mins after which it defaults back to secure system is locked etc The unit will not now work until next time car is started and the same sequence is repeated. Am waiting for Nissan to decide if they will repair after Nissan Warrington said they would replace unit then a few days later called to say now they would not pay for repair. Anybody know anything about software issues? after all if pulling a fuse disables a function what sort of design is that! Any help appreciated. ps if I want to pay Nissan say £1660 + VAT ( I declined their offer)

Hi my daughter brought the car home with the engine over revving and making strange noises ...but this was because the floor mat was stuck under the pedal !!! once I removed the mat the car settled down...but know the red battery warning light stays on. The car has started well over the last couple of days . I have used a multimeter to check the battery (engine off 12.3 and with engine running 14.5 so battery and alternator both seem ok to my simple tests. Have I missed some thing / is their a 'reset' on the battery warning light ? Cheers.

Nissan Micra

Hi I have a Nissan micra 54 plate and stupidly left the light on all day and night and woke up to a fkay battery. Got jump started fine and went for a 30 min drive. When I arrived at my mums I couldn't get it to start again so thought I'd get jump started again the go and buy a new battery. Someone tried jumpstarting but I t wouldn't start, no power at all. Didn't want to go to a dealership as thought it would be cheaper and quicker to get a mobile mechanic out. He used his diagnostics machine and said that the fault was with the ecu which he ordered for me( it was a refurbished one and he had to programme it) when he fitted it the car still wouldn't start and he then said that one of the immobilisers had gone( apparently theirs 3) he called someone to come out with the machine who should have been able to sort it and reprogrammed the key but they were unsuccessful and he called a technical advisor who told him that it sounded like the ecu was spiked?? Apparently all the fuses are fine and I've replaced the battery. I'm just at a loss at what to do next. Its costing me a fortune at the minute!!

Sorry me again . My clutch on my Nissan micra tempest 2003 petrol car is heavier than my other two pedals , does this mean I need a new clutch or is it a car thing? Is a new clutch expensive etc.

Answers

The clutch pedal will always require more pressure to operate than the accelerator (and the brake until the brakes start applying). Whether the effort to operate your clutch is too high cannot be ascertained without physically checking it. Where is the 'bite' point on the clutch (top, middle or bottom of the pedal travel)?

Hi, my Nissan micra tempest 2003 has rust on the sunroof, how do I fix this? Please. Also only one of me reverse lights aren't working, are these expensive fixtures or cheap please? Garage or do my self? First time car owner so don't know. Had a look online but not really finding anything. Also if I buy rust remover do I need to buy anything else to put on after? Any useful information would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time. Have a nice day.

Answers

Many cars only ever had one reversing light wired up, you can check by looking to do is see if there is actually wiring and a bulb on the side that doesn't illuminate. Yes you will need to repaint (primer, undercoat, topcoat) once you've got rid of the rust by rubbing the affected area down till you reach clean metal. Mick from Portugal

Nissan Micra

3 weeks ago my Nissan Micra (63 plate) wouldn't start and I called The AA. I was told the problem was the starter motor and the guy got me back on the road. The car is still under guarantee and I left it with the Nissan dealer. I was told the battery was faulty and it was replaced at my cost. Today I had the same problem but after 4 attempts it turned over and got me home. I'm worried that it may be the starter motor -what shall I do?

Answer this question

Susan, West Yorkshire

Nissan Micra

I have an intermittent problem with my micra. It starts fine and then when driving the engine will suddenly cut out. The car wil not start again and does not turn over. When we have called the RAC by the time they arrive it will start and then nothing shows up on the diagnostics so the mechanic is at a loss as to what is causing the problem. We can then drive around sometimes for days or weeks with no issues than randomly it will happen again. It has been in the garage but again the mechanic is unable to diagnose the issue as it does not fault while in there. Any ideas?

Answers

You haven't said what year your Micra is, but the throttle bodies on them are known to fail (the internal solder dries out). I'd be looking at that from the description you've given regarding your fault, except the fact it won't turn over suggests something else. Mick from Portugal

Thank you Mick from Portugal. It's a 2002 reg, not sure if that makes a difference to your thinking? Susan from West Yorkshire

When it cuts out and won't restart are the ignition lights on? I'm thinking along the lines of there being a hair-line crack in a circuit board somewhere or a dry solder joint which loses connection once the car warms up breaking the circuit, and then when the car cools down the connection is remade thereby allowing you to continue. The problem is tracing where it's likely to be. If you don't have ignition lights I'd be looking at the ignition barrel, if you do I'd next be looking at the ECU. Solder joints & circuit boards are less reliable since they banned the use of lead in the solder. Mick from Portugal

Yes, the ignition lights are on. A fuse box under the bonnet has been replaced, not sure if this is the ECU, I'm not much of a mechanic, but still had problems after this. So frustrating! Susan from West Yorkshire

The ECU is the electronic brain for the vehicle, it's different from the fuse box. It's quite expensive to replace from Nissan, a second-hand one would be cheaper but would need re-coding to your car. Before spending money on an ECU have you asked the question of any of the Nissan owners forums? Such forums are a wealth of vehicle specific knowledge, you might find something on them.
