Sir,I'm thinking of replacing with new shocks all round my micra,& to that end asking the mechanic to drop the suspension a couple of clicks (to improve handling) Is this adviseable or will this be a false economy.

Answers

Hi Amy, does the blue temp light only come on when you start the car in the mornings? Blue temp light on the Nissan's mean the engine is cold and has not yet reached operating temperature. You will notice after a short drive (well in SA terms in summer) the blue light goes off... Elandré from South Africa

Nissan Micra

When I hit about 10 miles the car goes into limp mode. I think anyway as I can't rev more than 2-2.5k revs in any gear. If I pull over, wait a few seconds I can turn off and restart and go another 5 mile or so. No engine management light comes on. I have had replaced the timing chain, the cam shaft and crankshaft sensors about 6 months ago. This problem has been happening in the last 2 weeks. Is there anything obvious I need to check for? Thank you.

Hi, check if there are any fault codes. You need someone with an obd 2 reader. I got one from ebay for under £20. This will then tell you what your fault is. Then look online to find what the code means. If you take it to a Nissan dealer they will charge you about £100 to do this keith from Cambridgeshire

Rachel, Neath Port Talbot

Nissan Micra

Hello, I recently bought a second hand Micra 2007 Spirita and it's my first car so I need a little advise. The car has passed its MOT obviously, however the brakes need a lot of pressure applied to them before the car actually starts to stop. There is also a slight creaking sound when the brake pedal is pressed. I'm just wondering could this be an indication that there is a problem with my brakes? or is it just that this type of car does not have sensitive brakes. The car itself has only done 40,138 miles so I'm wondering if perhaps no major maintenance has ever been carried out on the brakes and only now performance is starting to deteriorate. I'd really appreciate some help, thank you.

Chris Masters, Gloucestershire

Nissan Micra 2002

When pressing the remote key the lights on my Nissan Micra flash but the central locking fails to open or lock the doors. Being as the lights flash I assume that the key battery is okay. Also the interior light fails to come on when the door is opened (the bulb has been checked and is okay), could this be linked to the failure of the central locking or simply another problem? If the door switch is faulty or failing to earth properly would it prevent the locking system from operating? Could a blown fuse be the problem? Please advise me. (Tempest)

I bought this Nissan Micra (1.2) and it came with the anti-hijack mode activated. I find it a pain to unlock (especially as I rarely travel on my own). I looked in my manual for instructions on how to revert it back to the normal convenience mode and found two ways of doing so, but neither have worked. Does anyone know how to remove this anti-highjack feature? Many thanks.

My Nissan Micra won’t start. Most of the time if I have to start it I have to remove the cable from the pickup sensor and then it will start and then I take the sensor back. This is no guarantee, sometimes it even refuses to start when I do that. I have taken it to the Nissan dealers and they can’t help me. When they diagnose it they don’t pick up anything / when they code the key it does not take it. Does anyone know what could be wrong please?

My Nissan Micra`s heater fan will only work on full power setting. What can I do to correct this please? (1 litre 2002)

Answers

THE REASON FOR THE FAN WORKING ON NUMBER 4 ONLY IS DEFINATELY THE FAULT OF THE HEATER BLOWER RESISTOR - VERY COMMON. YOU WILL FIND IT NEXT TO THE BLOWER MOTOR WHICH YOU WILL SEE IF YOU LOOK FROM THE FLOOR UP AT THE BACK OF THE GLOVE BOX - YOU WILL SEE A PLUG WITH ABOUT 4 WIRES AND THE RESISTOR IS HELD IN BY 2 SCREWS. TAKE IT OUT AND IT CAN SOMETIMES BE FIXED WITH SOME SOLDER - IF NOT GET A SECOND HAND ONE. MR. BEWS from Orkney Islands

Mr Bews is exactly correct. Mine was the same when I bought it. I took it out, and it has a small fuzeable link on the circuit board that sticks up slightly. Scrape it off and reveal some good shiney circuit beneath. Then a drop of solder will be a permanent fix. Just a word of warning, when you test the repair, just do this for a few seconds if the card is not back in its holder. The reason is it gets very hot, very quickly, and would melt. The holder it is placed into has the cool air from the fan blowing over it to avoid this problem when its working in place. Tony from Leicestershire

The temperature warning light on my Nissan Micra began to come on, then the engine would start to cool down (I could hear the fan functioning) and the warning light would disappear. A few minutes later it would reappear again and the process starts all over again, so I have just been topping the radiator and reservoir with water and coolant. Just recently the temperature warning light has begun to come on longer and more frequently. I don’t see any visible leaks under the car.
