Nissan Navara

I have a used 2010 D40 Navara that I bought a month ago. Recently the dashboard lights suddenly came on and off even without the key inserted. Is it because there is weather proofing problems of electrical components under the hood? I saw in one forum there were owners also talking about this. This few days I noticed that it was ok. I'm worried if there are other problems. Can anyone assist?

I`m looking for help with my 2002 Nissan Navara. It was running fine but now it sometimes doesn't start and when it does it starts belching out smoke. Sometimes when you push on the accelerator it just cuts out. It might run for a few weeks then goes back to cutting out and struggling to start. I hope someone can help out? Cheers!!

Hi there, I seem to have a nasty rattle coming from the right side of the engine, close to the pedals at around 2500 rpm-3000rpm. What's concerning is that it only happens now and then. The vehicle has only 8000 Kms and this has been happening since new. Please help. Up until now, I haven't enjoyed the vehicle because I'm waiting for it to break down.

Hi, I have a 2007 d40 auto 2.5L. I have had to have the cylinder head changed and head gasket. I drove it to the mechanic with no problem selecting drive. He now rings me saying that the van is now running but it won`t select D. He has had electricians in and they say it`s a fault with the gearbox and they need to take it off to find out what it is. They also want to charge me for all this work. I just want to know if they could damage the gearbox doing the previous work or if anybody else has had this problem with the auto gearbox?

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....

Pedro Farrancha, Portugal

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.

Nissan Navara

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
