I have an 02 Xterra S/C

I had this same problem a few months ago, had to have the truck towed twice before I could get it repaired. It was the fuel sending unit which needed replacement, and I have since read it is a common problem and perhaps a recall? I did not go that route as I needed it repaired immediately once the garage was open!

Check for a loose wire around the ignition. Also the ground wire from the engine to the body. The steering should not actually lock up, but will be very hard to turn when the engine stops. I assume it idles and starts fine?? But it shouldn't! Frankster016

My 2012 Nissan Xterra doors keep locking while I'm driving. This also happens when it's park. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?


That may be normal, all of my cars lock when going above about 15 mph and one of them locks when put in park, these were touted as a safety feature. Check with your dealer.

maby im wrong but if you rev up and only rear wheels spin that means that it might be 4 wheel drive but not constant 4 wheel drive or diff lock system ,,,, ,, in 4 wheel drive all wheells will turn together but if pressure of slip is bad enough or torque high enough only 2 wheels will drive ,,, thats why diff lock locks wheels together in each axle to over come this ,,, all wheel drive like in landrover locks all 4 wheels together to ensure all wheels rotate to give best grip
