Question about 2005 Nissan Quest

1 Answer

RSS The RSS (rear sonar system) is not working. The RSS ligt at the RSS button on the dashboard is ON (means RSS OFF). I push the button to turn the system ON (light OFF) and It doesnot turn ON (the RSS light will continue ON). I went to the 2 fuse boxes and I do not see a RSS fuse. Any idea on what fuse to check? Please let me know how to fix this problem. Thank you. Regards, Marco

I would bet that your issue is not caused by a fuse. The fact that the "Rear Sonar OFF" lamp is on and won't turn off means that the system is in fail-safe. The system has sefl-diagnosis capabilities and has found a fault.

To enter the self-diagnosis, turn the key off. Depress and hold the rear sonar switch and while holding it in, turn the key on. You will see the lamp flash and may hear a beep from the warning chime. Release the button and push and release 5 times within 10 seconds. You should see the lamp flash and another beep. Push and release the button one time. This will display fault codes that are stored in the system. For example, if a code 12 is stored, you will see 1 flash, followed by a pause and followed by 2 flashes. If there aren't any other faults stored, this will repeat.

I have seen code 12 most frequently, being that the warning chime has failed. If this is the case with your vehicle, you won't hear the beeps that I mentioned earlier, but only see the flashing of the lamp.

If this is the case, you will need to replace the chime. It is located under the cover between the steering wheel and the windshield. There is a "hood" that faces toward the steering wheel and behind that is a cover that is held down with spring-metal clips. Get a small screwdriver or panel "popper" under this cover and gently pry it up. The chime is a small speaker directly under that cover and is bolted down with 2- 5.5 mm bolts.

Once you have repaired the fault, the system will automatically reset the self-diagnosis memory.

If you have other codes, you may have an issue with one or more of the sensors located in the rear bumper. I, however, do not know those code numbers off the top of my head.

I hope that you have found this helpful!

2007 Nissan Quest: The RSS (rear sonar system) is not working. The RSS ligt at the RSS button on the dashboard is ON (means RSS OFF). I push the button to turn the system ON (light OFF) and It doesnot...


Hi there:
The number one thing that causes this system to go bad is one of the sensors in the rear bumper is bad and once one sensor is bad the hole system shuts off. Here at the dealer we can hook up a computer to your car and see which sensor is bad, but if you want to do this on your own, you can get one new sensor and install it in one of the holes and see if this repairs it, if not, put the old one back into place and now put the new sensor in the next hole (next sensor).


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Red flashing light under dashboard to the left of steering column


It's an LED for an aftermarket alarm system, it means the alarm is armed, remove the key from the ignition and push the button on the back and hold it in, turn the key to on and wait until the light stops flashing, turn the key off and remove it, the next time you turn the key on the light should stay off

Rapid right turn signal on dash but no right rear turn ligt at all


What that rapid turn signal on the dash means is, the rear turn signal tail light is burnt out. This is how you know the bulb is bad. Replace the burnt out tail light bulb and you will be back to normal.

I have an esp button on my VW should I switch it on in this weather or is it on default?


IMPORTANT NOTE: PERMANENTLY YOU SHOULD LEAVE THE "ESP" BUTTON FREE! It is "ON" by default, and ESP warning lamp on dashboard is turned off.
If you need ESP system deactivation for short time, then push the ESP button. The ESP warning lamp on dashboard will be turned on, for warning you that ESP system is deactivated. Only for short time in few special cases ESP system needs to be deactivated when you need to skid the car to go out of a bad situation, (e.g. to start off on slippery road, to climb on hill slippery road, ...). When you push again the ESP button the ESP system will be activated back, and ESP warning lamp on dashboard will be turned off.
If you don't push the ESP button when driving, and the ESP warning lamp on dashboard will be turned on itself accidentally, the ESP system is faulty and it's not active! Then you need to go at workshop for repair the car!

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

Rear sonar not working on 07 maxima


To top off what Jason mentioned, I went a little further to find out how much it cost to repair/ replace the rear sonar speaker for my 08 Maxima at the dealership. The cost was an astounding $67.00 plus taxes and they had to order the part. After some time browsing the web, I came upon a site where the replacement part cost a total of $16.00 to include shipping and handling. The site is ( BeStar technologies inc) part number BMS3650l-P2-HT LF. Check it out for yourself. I comes with the black plastic casing, I simply pulled out the little speaker and placed into the casing of my 08 Maxima and it works great!

Rear sonar no sound when backing up, switch is lighting off.


More than likely it needs a new beeper. When the beeper fails the light on the sonar button will stay illuminated and the system obviously won't make any sound.
