Just something to chime in and its simple to check, i had an issue where i thought my starter went, about 2 months ago, so i did a couple simple checks, but then i realized my negative terminal was a tad bit not on all the way, and tightened that down and worked fine, i remembered like a week or 2 before this issue i was working on something quick which involved unplugging the negative. Sensor reset by tire shop for free. Found that a recall was done on the years prior for same issue but dealer stated they would not do nothing due to no recall. It is designed to work at about 300%. Each time the battery failed, the car had been sitting for several days, started ok,proceeded to drive with ac and head lights on. I have a wife and 2 young daughters and we are a one car family.
The failure mileage was 65,000. It failed after 3 months, so shop had the parts supplier pay for everything including the tow. Faulty brake switch was replaced. This is a safety defect that needs to be addressed and Nissan held accountable. After a new battery my car runs fine but loses power and hesitates like its going to stall from take off or entering a turn and my brake and battery are still coming on at the same time. I had beem driving aproximately 45 minutes when my gas pedal stop working on me.
This makes the third one. I lost my brakes and steering and almost caused a big accident on the highway with speeding cars behind me going 55-65 mph. Said some wire had come loose. Tire dealer reset at no charge. Told him I spilled oil yesterday, my mechanic already checked for leaks, there are none.
Unfortunately, they chose to look at it strictly as a warranty issue. Nissan should do their part and offer a replacement for free so individuals have faith in using their services again. The battery light would illuminate at times when the vehicle was in park and would start to flicker and flash. My son's car caught on fire while he was driving it due to a part Nissan knew was defective. Driver's side power window switch replaced for second time, passenger side power window switch also replaced. The contact stated that at engine startup, the check engine warning light illuminated and sparks became visible once the hood was opened. Heated Seats not working 45161 km Intermittant failure of passenger side front window to respond to switches.
The vehicle has not been taken to dealership yet for inspection. Expected readings: After recharging the battery and testing with an hydrometer must have 12. Front door sensor was not registering door open most of the time. The manufacturer was not contacted. I can't wait until my car loan is paid off!. Details about the recall are below. The consumer stated Nissan did not find the cause of the problem, when the vehicle was taken to an independent dealer he determined the cause was a fluctuating voltage given out by the alternator and a worn wire harness which could of shorted the system.
I had to take it back with the light on still to get them to fix it. I then check this website, and find a ton of complaints about the same issue! From replacing the alternator, strong shutter in breaks even after replacing twice and needs again, replaced rear oxygen sensors twice with now a third needed, replaced mass air flow sensor, and now vehicle is out of commission due to needing a new computer system, idle speed control sensor, and rear O2 sensors again! And if you are starting over with a new battery learn how to care and feed it. If you are stranded with a non reliable car, it is a safety issue, it can be in the middle of the mountains or the middle of a desert, no way to start a car if no mechanic key is issued and the only option, the fob, is not recognized by your own car. Gr8 battery tester was unable at this time. I see many 2009 Nissans having this problem and I am extremely disappointed in the manufacturer to not recall this! Needed to be rewired and have hole drilled to let condensation escape. I could see the alternator was burning so I pulled the battery cable to stop the fire. Line is still leaking, requiring 2 recharges a year.
Apparently there should have been a recall on this internal steering wheel lock mechanism however Nissan has passed the cost of the faulty component onto the unexpected consumer. This last time wife tried to turn wheel a bit while locked and vehicle was able to be started again, she avoided being stranded once again. So you must charge that battery up to full, hydrometer test and voltage test, test the range of operating conditions. Voltage of 11V is a dead battery as far as delivering any amps. Read the meter in Amps. Was original starter so I reckon 180k is great, with 1 brush change.
Pentofrost A3 does not Asian vehicle applications in water-cooled engines. Tried both keyfobs with no change in status. It that battery cannot be fully charged and tested good at the very start it is time to replace. Diagnosis: client states vehicle won't start. I googled the issue and it appears be a long standing issue no real resolution. Car has power and door locks work fine locking and unlocking but nothing happens when you push button to start the car.
My son was driving his 1996 Maxima when the alternator caught fire. A number of the complaints had alternator problems and the Maxima dying on them while driving around the same mileage that my car is at right now, 27,300. Second time within one year. Was late for work and had to have my vehicle towed out of my own garage. Made him aware of the 3 recalls on this vehicle addressing loss of power 2 out of 3 recalls. The first time the battery was replaced and the second time the cause of failure was determined to be the crank position sensor.
