Thanks firstly to anyone who can help:- I know how to shift between the computer options on the indicator stick, but how do I reset them and what does each option mean? Also, I have a late 1999 version, but the owners manuals from Nissan go up to 1998 and from 2000, but no 1999 option, which one should I go for? Once again, thanks to anyone who can help. Jay

Hi, we have a nissan primera p12 2001. With no previous indication that anything is wrong the car (ie no trouble turning over on cold mornings, no funny sounds, no missing or sluggishness) it simply wont start. We purchased new battery this morning, fuses check out, full tank of petrol, oil and air filters replaced recently when oil was changed. We have looked at immobilizer button on key. Any further guidance would be very much apprecitated. Thank you

Solution: You will need to fit a replacement crank angle sensor to fix the problem. The usual cause of these problems is a fault with the crank angle sensor tingi from Zimbabwe

Hi everyone, I am having a bit of an issue with my 2001 Nissan Primera P12 wagon. Two days ago I started it up and noticed the rev counter ceased to function altogether. The following morning it failed to start at all, it is however turning over. I have checked the fuses and they appear to be all good. Tried disconnecting the battery for 20 minutes but still no change. Any ideas on this? Thanks

This may sound stupid but how do you change the side light bulb that is incorporated in the headlight on my Nissan Primera SE+ year 2000 without wrecking the front headlight? I have removed the battery so I can get to the bulb holder but no amount of pulling and twisting seems to budge it?

Answers

There should be a metal strip, usually white sticking out from the headlamp unit. Grip it, quarter twist it, and it should pop out with a bulb holder and side light bulb fixed to it. change your bulb and replacement is the reversal of removing it. Mark Atkinson from Essex

Teddy Mtolo, Zambia

Nissan Primera

I have a Nissan Primera 2001 model, 1.99cc. The problem is that when I start the engine it only runs for almost 30 seconds then it stops on its own, I cannot even move with it, there is nothing on the dash board which shows there is a problem. I consulted an auto mechanic who checked it, he checked the fuel pump and filter they were just okay, the fuel system seem okay. He checked the fuses, they all seem okay. What could be the problem? I will appreciate your quick feedback. Thank you.

Answers

Hi Ted, there are two things you need to check: 1) The MASS AIRFLOW sensor which is in between air filter and the carburetor. If the mass airflow sensor is not working it chokes the carburetor. 2) Check the distributor cup and the rotor. If possible change themkofi from Kent
