Hi, I have a 2012 Navara K/Cab 2.5 Diesel. When accelerating hard or especially driving steep uphills, the Brake Warning Light comes on. I have checked the Brake Fluid level, which is fine. Is there any other reason why the light will come on? What can I do to rectify the problem?

My navara yd25 starts in the morning then stops after about 30 seconds. I have to pump diesel using hand pump until it hardens. Starts okey but with black smoke. Same happens after a long stop.

Answers

Something is wrong with your turbo charger, rev it high until the smoke clears as it seems the turbo is not cutting in. Ryno from Namibia

I had a similar problem with a 2007 Nissan Navara TDI 2.5. It ran okay for like 2-3000 km then blew the turbo. Ended up with a runaway engine(very scary situation). My advice- Get your turbo checked either at Nissan Kenya or DT dobie otherwise you'll be buying a new engine soon. Chears Vincent Lamuka from Kenya

Nissan Navara

I recently purchased a battery for my Nissan Navara Aventura 2008 model. A few days after the battery was changed, the display area for the radio and map would turn black when I start the vehicle but would come on after a while by itself. Now, after starting the truck and it is still in the park position it would cut out or sometimes when I move off and once I drive the truck off at a good speed to get a high "rev" the truck would not cut out and run smoothly. However, even if I park the truck after a 30 or 40 min drive and return to it afterwards I would get this same problem of the truck cutting out. I would really like to know what is causing this problem. Thank you very much in advance.

Nissan Navara

Have a Navarra Rally Raid 2004 double cab pick up. Have been away for three weeks and started truck up with no problem except within about 15 seconds the air conditioning stopped working and will not turn back on, have swapped fuses in dashboard fuse box but with no effect. Does air con need to be reset if not used for sometime and if so how do I do that (I have no handbook) or are there more fuses that need to be checked? The air conditioning control unit is a digital display with push button controls (looks like a radio!) Any ideas will be gratefully received Thanks

Answers

Derek, the air conditioning should not need a reset but it may need a recharge.. that is removal of all the aircon chemicals and replace with new... but it could be the fan motor that is not working. If the control display looks normal then it may be the fan. R Evans from Caerphilly

i work with the nissan company in our workshop. we recently overhaul a yd25 engine and it started well but was smoking alot. for some reason our supervisor was playing around the fuel system, as they started the engine, the connecting rod went through the engine block.when we disassemble the engine ,the no. 2&3 cylinder at the top had alot of diesel... my question is this...... do the sensors on top of the fuel injectors need to be calibrated through the consult 3

Answers

You work at Nissan garage and they don't know????? Wow, good advert for Nissan training and technicians. . For a supervisor to be "playing around with the fuel system" suggests he is not trained and should never have been playing!!.. disgraceful behaviour at a Nissan main dealership. Yes, injectors need calibration, but this is done by programming them into ECU.. all this does is ensure the correct amount of fuel injected each time and that the injections are timed correctly.. but shouldn't/wouldn't cause the rod damage.. that is likely to be assembly error... timing chain slipped or camshaft & crankshaft timing not done correctly might cause it, but you'd likely have damage to valves and piston crowns R Evans from Caerphilly
