My year 2000 Primera SE= has failed its MOT because the airbag warning light stays on even though the bags check out as ok on the computer. Is there a fix other than tracing through the electrics to find the fault, this being the case it would be unviable, and I will have to scrap one of the best cars I have owned. Please help?

I have a problem with my Nissan Primera 2004. The car shakes a lot sometimes, especially when I drive slow and the same time the engine light is on. When it happened last year the mechanic changed the spark plugs and that was OK for sometime. But again after six months the engine light reappeared. Now when the car shakes the engine light blinks but it never goes. Do you have any idea what the cause is?

I noticed when I drive my car it will just stop and and will give hard start then will later drive for a while and stop again. But the drive is smooth it doesn't Jean nor misfire. Please I really need help.
Sounds like crank sensor located right hand side of engine block at back of head.you will have to feel for it it is not possible to see it. Remove the trunking on right side of engine. You can then get your hand and feel for it.it is held in place with a ten. Mill bolt don't forget to release the wiring loom. Very fiddly but can be done.cost of part thirty pounds.

My car consumes a lot of fuel. In fact, used 110 liters of fuel for a 400km distance last week. I gave the car to my mechanic and he damaged so many things and replaced them with odd ones. 1. The sensor accelerator that came with the car was damaged and he replaced it with cable. 2. He is also changed the vehicle brainbox and replaced it with a model of BrainBox that has free code when he lost the key to the car. Most time, when I start the car in the morning, black smoke usually comes out from the exhaust. Please kindly assist me with useful information as I am fed with the vehicle's excessive consumption of fuel. Thanks.

If the parts are readily available in Nigeria, and Warri in Particular where I live 4. The durability of the car compared to its contemporaries like Audi , Golf ,Passat, Carina e, Avensis wagons. 5.

Good Morning Sir/Madam, I am David by name and a Nigerian. I bought a Nissan primera 1999 model hatchback, only to discover that the automatic gear box does not change when I accelerate the car thereby stressing the engine the more. My question now, is that what can I do to resolve the issue. Some persons are advising me to work the gear box while others are telling me to replace the gear box with a new one. Please advise. Thank you.

Hi, my car keep displaying "SECURE" and stops my satnav and music. Any advice please. Thanks .
This often happens when the battery in the fob is low and needs changing. if you have a setup that allows you to drive the car with keys in your pocket, sometimes you need to use the key in the ignition... try using the key in the ignition and see if it works.. if it does then it's prob battery in the fob.. it happens on my x-trail R Evans from Caerphilly

I am trying to replace the gearbox oil.I have managed to drain the oil. The filler plug on the side is very tight.I have tried a 3/8 square spanner,the hole is 1mm bigger than the 3/8. I am scared of damaging the hole.Any suggestions?
I wouldn't risk using that, they are prone to being super tight, I broke 3 tools that were the perfect size trying to open them. Still never got the filler undone, only other way to get the oil in is through the top, on top is a plastic piece with 1 bolt in I believe, it's awkward as hell but undo the bolt, carefully pry around the edge till the cap pops off then fill it from there, best of luck Marc from Kent
