I had a problem that the van would idle but when you press the accelerator it would cut out. It turned out to be a broken wire at the fuel pump caused by a mechanic who changed the oil filter from the top. Now I have the engine management light on and have tried two different readers to which it states no fault found, but the stop sign is on and the engine is flashing. How can I stop this please?

My van will not start as there is no power to the Ecu. How can I identify which power supply is not getting to the Ecu, or does anyone have the wiring schematic for a 2.0 Primastar dci 115 2007 so I can work out which power supply is missing and where I need to test using a multi meter?

Hi, I recently changed the battery on my Primastar & since reconnecting the new one the Stop, Service, ABS & Handbrake lights are permanently light on the dashboard. I have tried disconnecting the battery & reconnecting but no difference. Any ideas why all would light up at once like that? The van was fine prior to battery issue & was only serviced a few months ago? Many thanks, Dan.

Please help me. I have a Nissan Primastar dci 100 which has got a starting problem. One day it will start and the next moment it does not want to start at all, and sometimes if it`s cool it`s starting without a problem at all. This is a serious problem to me which forces me to start this car with quick start.

Engine cuts out and 40amp fuse blows located on fuse box top of battery. Please help

Answers

With my van it was the wiring rubbing off the gearbox, what I did was wired some spade connectors in, meaning if it blew I only needed maxi blade fuses. But I put a piece of plastic pipe over it and it rarely blows compared to 2-3 times a day, hope this helps Ryan from Durham

You have to strip down where the gear lever is, then the panel has 2 screws in, take them out and the heater dials will be loose meaning you can change the bulb Ryan from Durham

Answer this question

Amit Parekh, Greater London

Nissan Primastar

Our mechanic checked the entire cables connection and could not find the fault. Our mechanic stated that there is no power supply in the gear lever. The TCM (Transmission Control Module) and ECM (Engine Control Module) has power but there is no output from TCM to the gear lever. Just for your information when the mechanic assembled the entire electrical couplers, surprisingly there was power in the gear lever. Our mechanic started the vehicle and engaged the 1st and 2nd gear manually, then applied the brake to stop, unfortunately the engine died on us. Upon checking, our mechanic found that the 10 amp fuse burnt. The entire system was off. Once the fuse was replaced all the system was back on. Really our mechanics are confused and unable to identify the fault. 1. Chassis no-VSKF4B1DTUY636930, Year Manf-2012, Nissan PRIMASTAR AUTOMATIC SE 2.0 DCI 115 and 2.
