    Well a bad computer miss with the wipers and other etc. stuff
      OK Allen i did some looking and here is what i found hope it helps you good luck

      A real common problem is a bad ground for the motor's mounting plate. While it's turned on and not running, use a grounded test light to check for voltage on the case of the motor. If there is, attach a new ground wire between the plate and the van body. Usually the motor will not run at all in any speed once it comes to a stop, but it's worth checking the ground.

      A defective Body Computer is the biggest cause of a dead wiper motor. I never heard of one running slow though. They normally quit completely. Some people have figured out how to add a switch to bypass the computer so the wipers will run constantly at one speed. The delay feature won't work but the washer still works normally. The Body Computer is bolted to the fuse box in front of and above the brake pedal.

      The multifunction switch should not cause the motor to run slow because its only job is to signal the setting to the Body Computer. The Body Computer controls the current to the wiper motor. You might also check for any related relays under the hood. I can't remember there being any, but if there are, pitted contacts will cause high resistance and a drop in current to the motor. That can be intermittent. A quick test is to switch a suspect relay with one of the other ones like it.

    What should it cost to replace the rear sensor that beeps when I back close to something?
    • Bobby
      12/30/2010 Bobby
      the cost of the part, which i'm not exactlysure of, plus about 1/2 hour to and hours labor I would imagine unless there is wiring damage to the the circuit also, but I can't imagine replacing one of those sensors more than a 1/2 hour, unless they needed to repair the bumper also

      Did you already try to check for any loose/damaged or corroded electrical wiring/connections in your fuel gauge circuit? Also check the condition of your fuel sending unit it might be faulty.

      I can’t find any available DLC online. But you can try to visit your local junk yard or visit your dealership for your query.

    Not receiving any heat from heater
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Hi Jack, your heater is basically a small version of radiator called heater core. Coolant passed through this and a fan is positioned in front to blow cold outside air over the fins. As this air travels over the heater core, it heats up and becomes the hot air which blows out your heater vents. But similar with other components, the heater core is subject also to damage issues. If the heater core becomes clogged with dust or sludge, you will no longer have heat. Another one, if heater core fan does not operate heat absence willl occur.

    All lights comes on except tail lights, replaced bulbs and fuses also relay. what could be wronf
    • vince^_^
      11/18/2010 vince^_^
      Try to check for battery voltage and ground at your tail light electrical connector. If battery voltage is present check your bulb socket and electrical connector ground terminal for proper ground. If either your battery voltage or ground is not present check your wirings/connections for an open circuit.

    When I turn on the air condition the air blows on the windshield and not inside the car. The defrost button is not on.
    It has been intermitting in such a manner that sometime the air will switch by itself and start flowing inside. But this time, is not happening any more. Is it a relay or a fuse problem? Any ideas? Mike

    How can i bypass my broken heater core to keep my windows from fogging up?
    my windows are fogging up due to a broken heater core and the annoying steam coming from the vents are distacting me.

      OK, you asked. Locate the place at the firewall where the two heater hose connections attach to the heater core inlet tubes. The hoses will be very close to each other, side by side. Remove the two hoses from the inlet tubes and jump them together with any suitable hose connector and hose clamps. Sometimes it is easier to jump out the same two hoses by removing them from connections to the engine and then jumping out the two places on the engine that you just removed the hoses from. That way you do not have to work in a very confined space to get the hoses off the core.

    Why does my air condition go on and off every couple a minutes when i put it on.
    94,000 miles. It happens when its cold. It happens when driving and when I stop. all the time. About 2 months ago. The engine light is off. There are no warning lights on.

      Check the condition of your a/c relay; it may be loose or defective. Also check the condition of your a/c switch, thermistor and your magnetic clutch relay.

      What would cause a/c to NOT take any freon/refridgerant into the system? It only blows hot air so my first guess was it needed charging w/freon. Does this mean the drier is out?

      The relays is usually in the fuse box under your hood check those first

    Keyless entry on door doesn't work
    Mirrors move on its own when entering it, seat will not go to adjustments, keyless entry on door will not work.
    • wrench head

      sounds like the fuse or module inside the door,if you have keyless entry on passenger's side try it if it works, then it is just the key pad on driver's side.

      What have you done so far to fix the problem with your headlight? Did you already check the battery voltage and ground at your headlight electrical connector (trace the ground of your circuit if your battery voltage is present, clean and repair if needed)? If the voltage at your headlight electrical connector is extensively less than the voltage at your battery you should refer to your headlight wiring diagram to trace and locate the voltage drop in your circuit.
