      If you're ripping from a CD or DVD, wma files should not exceed a bitrate of 192kbits/sec or be lossless. I would also suggest ripping mp3 at 192 rather than 256 or higher; that uses less memory and is quite adequate for in-car listening.

      Some have problems with the USB

      Notes on USB
      Due to constant changes of USB products in the market and their respective Software, it can be possible that some of the USB devices are not compatible with this Head Unit. The following file formats are supported:
      MP3 (MPEG 1 Layer 3) WMA (Windows Media Audio) The files must have the corresponding file extension “.mp3” or “.wma” to be played.

      The total number of files and folders that can be searched is limited to a predefined value. The Maximum number of files is 7999. The Maximum number of folders is 2000. The Maximum number of folders and number of files is 9999. Extra files and folders will be ignored.

      Notes on WMAfiles
      The following WMA files are supported:
       Bit rate: Up to 192 kbit/s
       Sampling frequency: Up to 44.1 kHz
       WMA file names must have the “.wma” extension.

    The wiper fluid is not working.

      Check first to make sure the wiper fluid reservoir is full / has correct level of fluid. Next, have someone turn on the wipers and fluid to determine if you can hear the wiper motor turning (sound). If 'yes', then check the wiper fluid tubes / hoses and nozzles for blockage / dirt. Use compressed air to blow the hoses and nozzles clean - to where you can detect the air passing through each component - from the washer fluid reservoir all the way to the individual nozzles.
      If 'no' wiper fluid pump sound when turned on - then check the fuse and / or washer pump wiring for corrosion, poor connection. Check to 'How-To-Guides tab this page for more detailed instruction.

      Need more information; what kind of noise? is is loud or soft? Is it a thump, or hum, or whistle? Is it low or high pitched? Hard to diagnose a 'wierd' noise without having more details. Try using the 'Diagnose' tab at top of this page.

      it is hard to explain it sounds like a grinding noise or like a buzzer it is loud, it only makes this noise when I lock the doors with the remote. thanks for replying so fast I appreciate it.

    The siding door fell off. It has 2 little pins that hold it on the siding rail and one broke off.
    The bar the pins are attached to is welded, so if it must be replaced the "actual" door would need to be opened up. Is the bar inside the door held on with a bolt? or is it also welded? Can we order this small unit? or does the whole door need to be replaced?

      Well, you are lacking freeon and you are leacing freeon because you have a small leak, or probably you need to get your AC system cleaned, or you have to replace the filters and the expansion hose, i mean, lots of probabilities, you will end up in the shop anyway so bring to an AC mechanic so you can get a better diagnosis

    How do i adjust headlights
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Here it is.

      CAUTION
      When headlights are replaced or any time front-end work is performed on the vehicle, the headlights should be aimed using the proper equipment. Headlights not properly aimed can make it virtually impossible to see and may blind other drivers on the road, causing injury or death.

      Park the vehicle on a level-surface, with the fuel tank about 1/2 full and with the vehicle empty of all extra cargo (unless normally carried)
      The vehicle should be facing a wall that is no less than six feet (1.8m) high and 12 feet (3.7m) wide
      The front of the vehicle should be about 25 feet from the wall
      If aiming is to be performed outdoors, wait until dusk to properly see the headlight beams on the wall
      If done in a garage, darken the area around the wall as much as possible by closing shades or hanging cloth over windows
      Turn the headlights ON.
      Mark the wall at the center of each light's low beam.
      Turn on the high beams and mark the center of each headlight's high beam.
      A short length of masking tape that is visible from the front of the vehicle may be used.

      NOTE: Although marking all four positions is advisable, marking one position from each light should be sufficient.

      Perform the necessary repairs.
      Turn the headlights ON.
      Adjust the beams to match the marks on the wall.
