Gday mate, geoff here. with the Ballast ressistor it is a voltage control unit in essence to lower the voltage hence give less power ( in all its forms, volts & amps ) further along the circut, if it is by passed then more wear n tear electrically will be done to what parts are protected by it, to be honest, millions of $ of developement go into cars to make them what they are, make your decisions from there, geoff

Find the big hose that comes out of the top of the radiator and follow it to the engine and that is where the thermostat is located. My advice is to be sure to get a factory thermostat and rubber gasket as it makes installation much easier. I have done it both ways and the factory one is easier to install.

SOURCE: i need to refill my gearbox oil of my 1996 model nissan sentra

I assume its a standard transmission.
Should be a threaded plug on the top of trans , or 1/2 way up on the side.
If auto trans , add fluid through dipstick tube.

SOURCE: Where is the blower resistor on a 2001 Nissan Sentra?

Its actually not that bad to change. If you open the glove box and remove the screws then the screws along the bottom of the glove box at the bottom of the dash the box will slide out. Remember to disconnect the light if it has one. Now you will be able to see the underside of the dash. You can see a large black box that has wires and vacuum lines all over. You need to locate a small flat plate with two screws and a plug in the middle. Disconnect the plug and remove the screws. The resistor will come straight out. The back side will look like small coiled up springs of different sizes. Install in reverse.Hope this helps. Good luck. Please re-post with updates. Thanks cj2176.

My 1995 Nissan Sentra heater fan only worked on high, so I replaced the blower motor resister and now it only works on the first 3 settings. Any idea why?


did you install the right resistor, or the resistor is defective, many problems with aftermarket resistors, try a dealer resistor.

I can help you with the owners manual. The link below will take you directly to the 1996 sentra owners manual. It is not specific to body style, as the hatch back had the same manual as the 4 dr coupe and the sentra SE-R. Good luck! I hope you find this very helpful!

Using a short socket of appropriate metric value, and a pry bar; Push the pry bar toward the firewall to loosen the tension on the belt. It's not that hard once you buck the initial spiral spring pressure of the tensionor. I have even pryed against the tensionor with a blunt heavy bar and moved it enough to free a belt.
