Question about 2006 Nissan Xterra
I have the same problem. I have a 2005 Xterra that I love. My problem started happening in June of 2008 but after two incidences the problem went away. This past week it started happening again. I can't tell how much gas I have in the tank. After filling up, the gas gauge doesn't move and the engine light comes on. After driving sefveral miles, the gauge begins moving but then gets stuck on a half tank of gas. I have no idea how much gasoline I have in the tank. I was told it would cost around $500 to fix. Now my Xterra isn't so great.

the problem would be that of the fuel gauge which in newer models are mounted in the fuel tank, or the fuse for the gauges are burnt out, or there is a loose connection

the fuel level sending unit might be shot. mine went out and every time the gauge hit 1/4 tank the needle dropped. its a $80 part, simple to fix yourself if you are out of warranty otherwise they will try to nab i with a $280 bill that includes changing the fuel pump which is not required.

WE HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH OUR NISSAN X-TERRA. HOPEFULLY THEY CAN COME UP WITH A RESOLUTION FOR THIS PROBLEM THAT WAS CAUSED FROM THE MANUFACTURING OF THE VEHICLE. WE CAN ALSO TRY THE BBB ( BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU) AND PUT UP A COMPLAINT TO THEM AS WELL. IT'S PATHETIC THAT WE WOULD HAVE TO PAY OUT-OF-POCKET FOR THEIR MALFUNCTIONS. -NL

Hi the same happen to me ... i solve it like this
Open the trunk, locate the fuses compartment box, open it
Read the location of the fuse under the tap of the fuses compartment box
It should be "15A Fuel Pump" fuse so exchange it for a new one
You can buy it from wal mart (the little ones, not the standard regular one ok...) or you can buy it from the dealer ... wich i did but it cost me 3.35 dlls and a box in walmart is cheap ....
have a nice day !!!
