I have a 2006 D22 duel cab STR and the front speakers only work intermittently, usually in hot weather. I thought it may have been the radio, so I swapped it for another, however this has the same problems. So I imagine it may be a faulty connection or dry solder joint. Any ideas where to look?

I recently took my Nissan Navara D40 for a major service where they changed the gearbox oil. When I left the garage there was a bad gearbox oil smell in the cabin, and thought it will go away, but the problem does become any better and the smell continues. This morning when I drove it, it was difficult to engage the lower gears as they were so stiff, and the bad gear box smell continues to suffocate me in the car. Please help me, I am now reluctant to use the car...

Nissan Navara

Hi, my Navara is 2 years old and we are starting to have problems with our radio and ECM. The radio has a different name for the station it is on and the Bluetooth plays up. The radio has just been replaced and is still starting to do the same thing. The car wouldn't start a few weeks ago and I had a Nissan technician look at it. He jump started the car as we thought the battery might have run flat but once the car was started the engine light came on and I lost all electronic gauges, all went blank and then restarted themselves. My Nissan also is lagging a bit when first put into reverse. The technician told us to get it towed to Nissan and they recharged the battery, the technician said the charge was just under 12V when he got there but assumed it was just from us trying to start the car a few times. They replaced the radio unit also cleaned some of the contacts around the ECM. Within the week my Nissan is back at the dealer for the second time to find the same problems. What could be causing this, could we have a faulty ECM?

Answers

K, Just for giggles have the battery removed from the vehicle and load tested. If there is any doubt about the battery, REPLACE THE BATTERY. they only have a 2 to 3 year warranty for a very good reason...... (Keep the old one if there is still a possibility of using it to jump start another vehicle at home, especially if you have your own battery charger...otherwise get rid of it.) While you are doing this and have the battery terminal clamps in your hands, clean them to shining brightness, and then clamp those shiny clean clamps tightly to the new battery's terminals. Your whole car relies on a good battery. Showing 12v at any time unless actually cranking the starter motor means that it is not a good battery..it should be at least 12.4 volts even after cranking for some time. Low voltage = problems. Jump starting a computerised vehicle is fraught with danger. Don't be penny wise and pound foolish. Then, when you have a good battery in the system, check the charging circuit, check any trouble codes, clear them and drive for a while. recheck for any trouble codes.....you should be good to go....

Nissan Navara

Hello. I own a Nissan Navara 2006. A few days ago, I was going home when suddenly the driver's left side airbag exploded (the seat airbag too). Luckily the road was safe, i was going in a straight line and there were no cars near me. I did not hit anything before or after the airbag went off. Just to be clear, the airbag i am talking about is the one that comes down form the roof and covers the windows. Did this happen to anyone around here? I believe this is not the first time something like this happened, because i red about a recall due to airbag defects, but only in US, uk.. I am from Portugal. Will nissan take care of my problem? Should i be worried about other airbags? Thank you, Pedro Farrancha

Answers

Pedro, only your Nissan dealer can answer these questions. BEFORE you go to him, take lots of photos of the exploded bag...and see if a local newspaper reporter might be interested in a good story. Then go to the Nissan dealer, take the reporter along as a "friend" of yours and start asking hard questions. Depending on whether they say "yes" to replacing at Nissan's expense, or not, when you get to the real Manager of the place, and if the manager still refuses to replace at their cost, reveal that your friend is a newspaper reporter and the story will be in the paper... He may well say "yes" then. If so, get it in writing and be careful that nothing else gets done to your car while they are replacing the airbag. The reporter gets a good story either way.

Nissan Navara

Hi, today I have no hot air from my heater. I noticed water on the passenger side footwell and eventually it started runing hot so I checked the water level in the rad and it was very low. I`ve had no problems before. Can you help?

Answers

Mark, you may have a leaky heater core. or a leaking hose from the engine to the heater core. As a keep-you- going- without -a -heater, find the two hoses that lead from the engine, (usually near the thermostat housing), to the heater. Remove them from the engine, and buy another small length of the same hose to connect and loop the water from the output spigot to the input spigot. Then refill the radiator with coolant and run for a few minutes with the radiator cap off and watch for bubbles of trapped air, refilling the coolant to the correct level until no more bubbles appear for a couple of minutes. Put the radiator cap back on tight, and refill to the Min level the overflow reservoir. You should be good to go, and you have all summer to check out the cost of either changing the heater hoses or the heater matrix itself...Google it and see youtube vids on this.

Hello, my battery went flat on my D22 double cab 2.5 di, tried to jump start, turned over but would not start. I noticed that the immobiliser light was on , disconnected battery and fitted and new battery, but when tried to start it only turned over. Gone into Nissan Dealership in Huddersfield but so far after 3 days they have found nothing. The technician who is working on my truck is convinced its the ECU programming software which is too new. Any one any ideas or had this before. The hourly rate at the dealers is making me feel sick so I need it sorting asap. cheers, Simon

Answers

Simon, your problems started with a dud battery. The immobilisation system probably thought you were trying to steal the vehicle when you jump started it. The immobilisation system did it's job..it stopped the vehicle from starting (and being stolen) So, when you put the new battery in, did you reset the immobilisation system? There is a set procedure for this which should be in your manual. The mechanic certainly should have done this as a first action. John Smith from New Zealand

My nissan navara yd25 from thailand i did a complete service recently including injectors and a scan the problem is when i am going up a hill the engine cuts off, i tumble about 3 times before it restarts,also the gas gauge does not read properly, sometimes the tanks is full, yet the gauge does not show it and the gas light comes on, also i noticed when overtaking there is a loss off power, the main problem is the cutting off. i rechanged the fuel filter but same problems is repeating, this is the first time i am having this problems since i bought the vehicle please help chan trinidad

Answers

Chan, the first thing that comes to mind is that the lift pump that sucks fuel from the tank through the filter and then pushes it into the injection pump is failing. The loss of power from this means that not enough fuel is getting injected when going uphill or overtaking. Solution is to replace lift pump with another, or put 12 volt electric fuel pump in the fuel line to eliminate this fault in the future as well. Google lift pump failure and you will see it is world wide in many different engines. If you do not replace it the injection pump will wear out very quickly as the diesel fuel cools and lubricates it.... John Smith from New Zealand

Chan the fault with the fuel sender gauge can be a bad earth return from the tank to the body, or a bad sender unit. If you can put up with the light showing, or it will cost too much to fix...Use your trip meter and reset it to zero every time you fill up. Refill at say 500km; note how much fuel is used, and when you next fill up at the next 500km; check again. This means you have a very close watch on how much fuel the truck is using, and if it starts to use a lot of fuel..you will know straight away. John Smith from New Zealand

Hi all yesterday after work I tried to start my D40 diesel but wouldn't start had to pump the fuel up by hand then it started, got 2 ks from work and it stoped again, so I pumped the fuel up again and away I went, got home ok running very well, turned it off and tried starting it again all good. 2 hrs later I tried again and no fuel again. this morning I pumped it again and tried to start it with no luck, so I pumped the fuel up some more and went to start it and the motor wouldn't turn over. Its like the key is dead and no eng light, but when I turn the key on all I have is ABS, AIRBAG, DOOR, 4X4, HANDBRAKE, BATTERY, AND SEATBELT LIGTH on and no ENG light so cant get any codes. I have checked all the fuse, earths and fuel lines, 2 fuel lines were lose iv fix them, I tried cross the starter motor and it turns over but cant get it to do it with the key, there is power coming out of the key. Anyone got any idea what is going on pls. It is a Nissan navara 2007 diesel 6 sp iv only had it on the road for 2 weeks and was going well till now. its the 1st Nissan iv ever owned so don't know a lot about them. next weekend is a long weekend and want to go away so only have a week to fix it lol.

Answers

Alec, as a desperation measure, take the positive lead off the battery and ground it on the body work or engine metal for 2 minutes, this will force the ECU's to restart in learning mode. Have the security code for the entertainment system before you do this, you will need to input this as well. Now reconnect the positive lead, and pump up the primer until it is hard. now try starting the engine. If this does not work Google the many other fuel/line/filter/water/pump problems that people have had with this engine and see if any of their solutions can be made to work in your case. I suspect that the lift pump is now not working properly and i also hope that the main injection pump (which relies on the lift pump to always supply a good flow of fuel to cool and lubricate the injection pump) hasn't suffered any damage by running out of fuel.... Replace the lift pump with a 12v inline one..this should solve the lift pump problem. Once the injection pump gets fuel under pressure it should tell the ECU, which will then allow the starter motor to work by the turn of the key..... John Smith from New Zealand

Answer this question

Mick, Australia

Nissan Navara

Over the last month my aircon settings have stopped working. Two weeks ago when I turned my aircon onto the low setting (1) it stopped working! Now today it has stopped working on the next setting (2). Is this what happens when the gas in the aircon is getting low? Please help

Answers

Mick, Follow this logically; to activate the aircon pump clutch you need to have selected a fan speed which also supplies 12v to the clutch. The first speed of the fan crapped out, so the clutch got no power and could not engage. Then the second speed crapped out, so again, no power, no clutch, no air con. What happens when you select third speed..does the aircon work? So you may have a problem with the fan speed selector switch itself, or the resistor that steps down the voltage to provide the change in speeds. Is this fan speed selector a manual one (in which case there is a resistor inside the air vent housing)..just trace the wires from the fan switch to the fan motor and you will find the resistor in the line...it may be corroded and only require cleaning up to work. Use a multimeter to check that 12 volts is coming from each switch position to the resistor. If the fan switch itself does not work you will need to replace it. If the selection of fan speed is all electronic..you have to replace or repair the electronics... Re the gas in the aircon getting low..sort out the fan switch resistor situation first, then bite the bullet and get it checked by an aircon specialist who in most cases can do it while you wait... A precautionary check every 2 to 3 years on an older car makes good sense. John Smith from New Zealand

Nissan Navara

Hey John I need some advice. I`ve got a 2003 Nissan Navara 2.2 ZD30DDT. My truck broke down, the engine light was flashing so I towed the truck back home, checked the diesel filter, water on the bottom. I cleaned out the fuel system but it still will not start. I took the truck to get it tested (scannned, came back with faulty pump spill valve. Are there any other checks I can do and is my truck a common rail?

Answers

Steven, do some googling re spill valve and your engine type problems. http://www.navara.asia/archive/index.php/t-18466.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_ZD_engineThese engines are very sensitive to water and rubbish in the fuel. I fear some may have got past the filter and is now playing merry hell in your lift or injection pump, or both. The spill valve is a part of the injection pump. Start there; you really need an expert mechanic to help you with that problem.John Smith from New Zealand

Sharon, West Midlands

Nissan Navara

Hi I had all the filters changed and now the aircon is not working and it`s making a sound like a cd changing?

Answers

Sharon, did a professional change the filters? Did the filter change include a cabin air filter that goes into the air ducting under the glove box? If so, could the professional have disturbed wiring trying to get to this filter? If so, go back to he professional and tell him to fix it... The other possibility is leaves etc being sucked into the fan and blocking it if the cabin air filter was not put back in place??? Unless it was at a Nissan dealer they are not all that commonly held in stock..was it actually taken out??? Other than that, it could be a wild coincidence...since I can't hear the sound I can't advise further, so it might be a good idea to go to an car aircon specialist for further advice...perhaps before you go to your filter changer????

Thanks for your response. In answer to your questions, no, I've had it for a while. No parameters have changed. Just thought I'd ask the question as I've seen threads on other forums where people reckon they've managed to get 600+ km out of a single 75L tank of fuel on the exact same vehile... I'm lucky to get 500km from a full 75L tank even when cruising on dead flat highway the whole way, sitting on 110 km/h the whole time. (Yes I live in the middle of nowhere so this is possible). The only thing I can think that isn't factory spec are the tyres which are currently 255/70R16 where the owner's manual specifies 265/70R16s. However this wouldn't have an effect on the odometer readings as the only difference in dimension is the width of the tyres. Again I ask, is this sort of fuel consumption i.e 15L/100km and revs of ~3600 RPM at 110km/h typical for this model? Thanks Dan from Australia

Hi there.. I made a big stuff up this morning, petrol instead of diesel in my 2006 d22 str (3.0 TD) Got around five km down the road and it died. Have been told that a new fuel filter and draining \flushing the lines would get it going again. The only problem is draining the tank, I can't for the life of me syphon the bloody thing. Is my only option to get it on the ramps and drop the tank? Cheers!

Answers

Frank, do you have access to any sort of pump that you could attach to the fuel line before the filter (or just after) and suck it all out? There may still be some left though right at the bottom, and if you do get it all out any crap will also flow through or block the entry to the line in the tank.....damned if you do and damned if you don't. You would probably be best to bite the bullet and take out the tank, then you will know everything is out, as well as the crap. Good luck, I'll keep my fingers crossed for when you start it again.. John Smith from New Zealand

Take the tank out, otherwise either some will be left at the bottom of the tank anyway, or all the crap will be sucked into the intake and block it. Tank out, all happy! John Smith from New Zealand

Hello I have d22 yd25 2002 2wd turbo black smokes, hard to drive at same speed, it's like it`s over fuelling. Then you put your foot down a bit and it takes off and stops smoking. I`ve just had new injectors fitted but this has made no change. Any ideas? Cheers

Answers

Andrew, Have you had the trouble codes read? If not, now would be a good time to do so. If you want to trouble shoot this logically, then it appears up until a certain point in the rev range, the ECU is under the impression that there is more air going into the engine, (thereby requiring more fuel) than is actually occurring. Have you cleaned the MAF sensor recently? Can you inspect the ducting that carries the metered air from the MAF sensor to the turbo intake for any breaks, especially underneath or in a bend? Both these faults could give the ECU the "extra air" impression. Can you check the TPS (throttle position sensor) is working properly as well? Last but not least Google SCV (suction control valve) faults and see if this could also be a problem.... Did the over fuelling happen before the injector change as well? Or did the person doing the change tweak the performance of the injection pump? John Smith from New Zealand

Nissan Navara

I have got a 2001 nissan d22 but it is the 1998 - 2001 model and I changed the fuel and air filter and now it no longer goes over 3000rpm the I blew the fuel lines out have cracked off the two injectors I can get to and changed the fuel filter again that rejuised it down to only going up to 2500rpm and since then it will only go up to 1500rpm then start spluttering and cut out

Answers

Sydney, sounds like there is still air trapped in the system, or entering the system somewhere. All this grief started after you changed the fuel filter, so if you still have the old one, and it is not too dirty, change it back after you have pre filled it as much as possible. Or, buy the proper Nissan filter and pre fill it, making sure that the old rubber gasket has been removed from where it could lodge in the housing. There should be only one gasket between the filter and the housing, and it does not need to be put on too tight, hand tight plus a little twist only, with the gasket pre smeared with diesel so that the dry rubber does not twist up. If you have a hand primer pump fitted , use it until the pump does not move up and down at all (sometimes 150 pumps....). As far as the air filter is concerned, just check that air can flow through it if it is not a genuine Nissan filter.... You may need to wind the engine over quite a bit to get a solid fuel flow, so use a jumper battery or recharge the one in the truck to give yourself the best chance of getting it going. Use the starter in short bursts and let it cool down occasionally... John Smith from New Zealand

I had the same problem. It's the micro filter. You will find a large union nut connecting a metal fuel pipe to the injector pump around 17-19mm. Take that out put in a small pick and pull out a spring then use the pick and pull out a micro filter it's about an inch down. Throw that away put back together and you'll never have a problem again.

If the micro filter saved your injector pump from ingesting rubbish and being damaged, why not clean it in nice fresh diesel fuel and carefully put it back so it can save you again if rubbish gets past the fuel filter? That is why they put it there..to save you if you neglect regular fuel filter changes or there is an overabundance of rubbish from a bad fuel load that gets past the fuel filter.......

Nissan Navara

Hey mate, my 2002 d22 navara 3 ltr the gearbox gets really hot why'll driving ( to hot to touch) then cools down and then it starts to heat up again, only after long drives, the gearbox has been regally serviced. Any help would be great, cheers Danny

Answers

Danny, all automatic transmissions get too hot to touch on long drives. The only way to be sure that it is abnormally hot is to fit a fluid temperature gauge either to the bottom of the pan, or in the output line leading to the cooler in the bottom of the radiator. If you want to make your trans last longer in any case, and in all instances if you tow anything, fit the largest trans cooler you can in front of the radiator and behind the grille. If your normal climate temperature doesn't fall to freezing, then loop the fluid through the radiator cooler, then into the extra trans cooler, them back to the trans. This will give you the lowest temperature possible. If you do have freezing conditions, loop through the aux cooler first, then into the bottom of the radiator, then back into the trans. This means that the fluid will always be at least slightly warmed. The ultimate is a Derale thermostat controlling the loop (Google and see). John Smith from New Zealand

Overheating on motorway changed stat flushed rad HELP

Answers

What engine, what transmission? What mileage? What coolant mix have you been using? What did tubes at top of radiator look like when you looked into the filler neck before you flushed the radiator? Did engine overheat at any time you have owned it? Any coolant in oil/oil in coolant? Does coolant circulate i.e. is water pump working? Does fan work properly? Is the fan belt new or worn out? Tensioned properly? Have you cleaned air con radiator and space between air con radiator and engine radiator of leaves and any other debris? If high mileage engine, take radiator out and have the top and bottom tanks taken off and the tubes physically rodded through which makes sure that the bits you can't see are clear for coolant flow. just a few blocked tubes knock out a large amount of radiator efficiency. And last but definitely not least; did you buy a Genuine Nissan Thermostat from the dealer..not a cheap one from a local factor, because the genuine thermostat is longer and works properly..the cheap ones do not.....

Nissan Navara

please help my dashboard nothing is working temperature control, speed meter, fuel indicator . what should i do ?

Answers

Either there is a fault in the actual printed circuit board of the dashboard or there is a fault in the grounding of the dash. 12 volts needs an earth to complete the circuit, and an unbroken circuit to make the instruments read at all. My educated guess is a break in the ground of the printed circuit board of the dashboard. If your dash works intermittently or indeed ceased to function after you hit a bump, this is almost a certainty...Google your year of navarra/terrano for dash repairs and you should find at least one firm in the UK that specialises in this type of repair.

Hi my question is the speedo on my navara is out by 7 km can it be fixed & how Thanks

Answers

Anything can be fixed; just how much money do you want to spend. I presume it is 7kmh optimistic? Most vehicles have 10% built in by the manufacturers in case the owner fits taller tyres. This is the cheapest way for you to correct the discrepancy. Next set of tyres fit tyres with a bigger or smaller rolling circumference to all 4 wheels of your vehicle to change the reading on the speedo. (Something like 70 ratio sidewalls instead of 65s?) Or you could just keep using your in car navigator/TomTom etc and worry about solving real world problems.... John Smith from New Zealand

Answer this question

Matt, Aberdeenshire

Nissan Navara

Just bought a 2009 Nissan Navara D22 and am wondering, can I replace the existing radio unit with a 2013 model radio? Thanks.

Answers

Probably. Call Nissan parts at your dealer and say something like "I want to buy a genuine Nissan unit and fit it to my 2006; can it work and how much will it cost me?' They will fall all over themselves to sell you a unit and once hooked they will answer the questions re the 2013 unit, too. But in case you get fed rubbish, try a good sound unit fitting place, they will fit the unit if it can be fitted. John Smith from New Zealand

will an engine from a Nissan Navara D22 2006 fit a model 2004

Answers

Check with the foreman of a Nissan dealer. Best to speak in person not on the phone and hint they may get the job to get a definitive answer. He should know if there are any differences especially in the electronic engine controls depending on whether you are swapping a manual engine/auto one and vice versa. You need an expert with deep specific knowledge, not a web forum.... John Smith from New Zealand

Go and speak personally with a foreman at a Nissan workshop. You need specific advice especially re the ECU requirements if the replacement motor is for a manual or auto or vice versa. John Smith from New Zealand
