Nissan Primastar

Hi all. Im having a slight problem with starting my van. it used to always start straight away warm or cold. Then i noticed it was taking slightly longer to start and now its taking about 3 seconds or so to kick over. Then when it does start it has a rough idle and when i press the accelerator nothing happens. After about 10 seconds the engine note changes and the accelerator kicks in. it only does this 1st thing in the morning or after being left for a long while. If the van is just stopped for a couple of hours when i pull away and change from 1st to 2nd gear the revs stay right up like i havent come off the accelerator, but it only does this from 1 to 2 and not in any other gear. I would like to get these problems sorted pretty soon (without going to a garage) especially the slight starting problem. If anyone has any info on these problems please help. Thanks, john.

I drive a primastar 52 plate, the brake lights keep failing and I've noticed there is no fuse, it's been to a mechanic a couple of times, last time he changed the plunger on the brake pedal I'm fairly unknowledgeable but it's the one which depresses when I press the brake, I watched it work in the garage when I pressed the brake pedal with out a fuse!! Now it's just stuck on any ideas? Have they messed it all up?

Hi my horn stopped working altogether it was playing up for a while and it's not a fuse and I cannot find it under the bonnet could you tell me where it is situated ?thank you

Answers

Mine has gone twice. Both times it was the horn in the passenger side front wheelwell. A new horn can be picked op for about £12 and it you can change it by moving the wheel to full lock. But keep in mind; if you van is sign written, it may be better to keep the horn broken! edtheplumber from East Sussex

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?

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.

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
