Have a faulty horn, checked fuses under the hood and these are OK, tried switching them but the horn still would not work? Suspect the fault lies with faulty wiring / connection under the steering wheel, though how you remove the steering wheel is a mystery. Is there an alternative less expensive solution to the problem? Can an auxilary horn to be fitted? I have still to find where the horn is located in the engine compartment? Any advice apppreciated.

The horn on my 2006 Note has failed. Have checked 10amp fuses under the hood and these are alright. I suspect the problem lies with the wiring and loss of connection under the steering wheel. What is the solution? Any ideas anyone? A DIY solution may be be to fit an auxilary horn with a switch on the instrument panel to comply with MOT requirements? Comments appreciated

When I bought this vehicle in 2006 from new I had headlight covers fitted by the manufacturer before purchase. Since then the covers have turned yellow and one has a hole in it. I wish to remove them but not sure how to. I believe they were moulded on. I would appreciate any help on how to do this. Thank you

Hi Had problem with my boot today, although the electronic switch is working, can't open the boot. Switch still clicks and locks doors etc. Had a problem a year ago when had to have wiring replaced at top of rear window, as apparently over the years water had got into the cable and ruined it. That time there was no click from the switch. Wondered if due to very cold weather perhaps something was frozen in the lock, but don't know how to check? Never had this exact fault before and never with weather. When wiring was replaced it was autumn. Any ideas???

I have done this and they don't understand what I have to do. I am the first owner of the car so nobody else could have registered it. I`ve asked customer services to delete my account so I can make a brand new one but it still gives me this message.

Andy Chadwick, Cheshire

Nissan Note

I have recently bought this 2011 (61) Note, it has keyless entry and keyless ignition. However, the keyless ignition keeps failing. I am following the instructions to press the brake pedal and turn the knob, but it doesn't turn beyond the first position and therefore won't start. Sometimes it starts on the 5th or 6th try, or not at all and I have to use the back up key. Other times it works without fail. This is very unnerving! Any suggestions? Is it a common fault?

Answers

Bought an 11 plate a couple of months ago and had the same problem, if the steering wheel is hard against the steering lock you cant turn the key to start the car, just wiggle the wheel and it should be fine. I have got used to it now and just pull/push the steering wheel and its fine. Hope it solves you the problem for you. Ray (the post above you) Ray from Middlesex

Alistair Clarke, New Zealand

Nissan Note

Hi. We have a 2005 Nissan Note. As a Japanese import into New Zealand, it has no User manual with it in English. So we are left in the dark regarding some of the features of our vehicle, though I did manage to download as a pdf file a user manual for the 2010 Note. But of course some of what is contained in this, does not apply to our 2005 vehicle. In particular, when the petrol light goes on, we do not have any indication how much petrol remains in the tank , which sometimes results in running out of petrol. Does anyone have an idea of approximately how much is left in the petrol tank of a 2005 Note when the petrol warning light come on please? Thank you. Alistair
