A little yellow man appears on my dash while driving off, it never used to, it used to go off straight away. It does go off, but just stays on for minutes and eventually goes off. What is the light for and what could be wrong? Would a universal snap on diagnostics machine check the system out?

My Navi and A/C on my 2002 primers doesn't work. The buttons don't work, the air condition is constantly on (I cannot turn it off as the buttons don't work), the Navi screen is blank. The radio does not work. However, I. Oticrd that it everything would come on a d work perfectly for about until I switch off the car, then that's it. This occasionally happens only perhaps once per month. Any ideas guys, I have no control of the dash board, it has a mind of its own.

Answer this question

louise, Suffolk

Nissan Primera

I am unsure why the power steering fluid bottle is black all over the lid and up to about an inch down the top of the bottle? As the car heats when driving even after few minutes I get this overheating/ burning smell. The accelerator pedal rattles when maintaining a speed, but not when I apply pressure, but then again when easing off. I know I need brake pads. Initially I was thinking clutch, but now not so sure. As I thought it was the clutch I didn`t look under the car, so when I did there is a black substance covering under the car, but not dripping, seems to be covering large area. Put in oil a few weeks ago as was very low, probably just missed permanent damage. Not sure if oil or power steering fluid due to the mysterious blacking of bottle. The steering wheel vibrates and so does the gearbox, although I am hoping this is tracking and balancing. Seems to oversteer easily even while being careful. Has anyone had the same issues and has an easy inexpensive fix or do I prepare for the worst. ThanksLouise

Neil, Hertfordshire

Nissan Primera

Periodically the engine on my Nissan Primera won't start. It turns over and sounds incredibly close to catching but doesn't quite. Occasionally when this has happened it has started but only for a few seconds where it is got up to 500rpm then died again. This problem usually manifests itself when the car is parked on a slope (facing either up or down) or if the fuel level drops to around half a tank or below. It 'heals' itself so whenever I have had anyone out to look at it, or if I go back to it a few hours later, it starts perfectly first time. Which means no-one can diagnose the issue. At my wit's end so any helpful hints or ideas would be useful.

Answers

I would suggest that you check the coil for overheating, some coils are filled with oil to keep them cool. If a coil overheats then it stops, when it cools down it will work again. Regards John john Leech from New Zealand

Hi, Can someone please help? My mechanic has replaced 2 sensors and the stepper motor of my 2001 P12 Primera Station Wagon. During colder weather, and sometimes during summer, the car needs to be warmed up first, then turned of for about 20 seconds maybe 30 seconds, so as the limp mode disengages. As you can imagine this is very frustrating, I am very close to taking my car to a transmission specialist. Also John Smith mentions about putting the positive terminal to the earth of the car for about 2 minutes in a lot of the posts. I am guessing doing that is safe as I am tempted to do that myself to my car? Please help super frustrated owner, otherwise car goes like a dream. Thanks in advance

Jan Sayring, New Zealand

Nissan Primera

We have had a 2002 Nissan Primera Japanese import. Over the last year we have had surging problems during long distance travel and when the car stopped it sounded like it was in a low gear, revving and only travelling at about 10 kms/hr when continuing on. We were told it was a sensor in automatic and it was replaced, several months later an engine light appeared on dashboard and we were told it was a crankshaft sensor which was replaced. Just recently we were travelling long distance and surging happened again Nissan said our battery was leaking and the acid was leaking on gearbox sensor. We replaced battery and they said sensor was ok. This week I travelled over steep windy highway and surging occurred again not as bad this time, weather was quite hot. Took to garage and mechanic suggested we replace coils and spark plugs. Car travelled over hilly road ok, but still minor surging. Help - what can it be??

Why is it that my Nissan Primera delays in starting the engine in the morning and also goes off immediately? Even if the car starts you need to put your foot on the accelerator for some time before it will be stable, and lastly when you are driving the car it will start jerking terribly and right now is not even starting again.

My engine warning light has appeared again. This has happened before and my mechanic said it was an o2 sensor, he said I have cleared it now and wait to see if it comes back on. This originally happened about 4 weeks ago and this morning the engine light has reappeared. My question is, is this something that needs to be fixed ASAP or would I be able to still drive it for a couple of weeks till I get paid?
