May be you should go for genuine lamps from the compan y and that too of same voltage.. check if you are puttig bulbs of lower voltage and bulbs getting blown up.. if it is not so then get your induction coil checked..may be its producing more current than required and blowing up the lamps.. i hope this will help you out.. belated Merry X-mas and Happy New Year :)

I have a 2003 Nissan Sentra and when I'm driving all the gauges shut off momentarily and come back on! What can cause that to happen?

hmmm does it do when the turn signal is triggered or when the headlamps are turned on? or possibly when you are stepping on the brake? by chance have you had an aftermarket stereo system installed? it would really help to know exactly what you did in the car a split second before it happened? i am not saying that it is driver error but it is likely a short in the wiring or a poorly installed stereo system. alot of the new cars come with audio systems that already have amplifiers installed in them. what the average person doesnt realize that all the wiring to the entire car is also ran through that amplifier. most new cars wont even start if you try to take them out actually. so if a new audio system is installed with a replacement amp or a second one installed for subs and every wire isnt perfectly secure and tight it is easy to get a short or a hiccup in the system. also you could have a plug on the back of you instrament panel that could be going bad or be lose

I have a 97 Nissan Sentra. It had a bad battery and i have replaced it but since nothing interior wise turn signals, no windows, no heat, no radio. I thought it was a fuse and I replaced it(7.5...

try the fusible link in the fuse box under the hood. very same thing happened to my sentra. of course you'll have to go to a dealer to get the new fusible link, but hey it was only like ten or twenty bucks. You should be able to tell if one is bad because they have little clear lids on them. If the wires inside are burnt or not connecting, you need a new one. Hope this helps. Good luck!

I have a 1998 nissan sentra that came with the original head lamp. i am trying to install a projector light on it. and the wiring is not the same. any idea how to get it done

Sounds like you will need to purchase an adapter/conversion kit from an auto parts store. This is usually the case when installing certain types of after market lighting... you could possibly also need a ballast type kit for these lights

Heater blowing cold air

My 05 sentra with 79k miles heat will warm up and then get cold after a mile of driving, we have tried to get the air pocket out, the mechanic stated he thought it could be a blown head gasket, another mechanic said it was a bad heater core. Any advice would be appreciated.
