Question about 2008 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

I have an 08 Nissan Sentra, it has 40,000 miles on it (Yes, I commute alot) recently my cruise control malfunctioned,and the set light blinked off and on; I parked for about an hour and jumped back on the freeway, and it started working again. A day later my check engine light went on, and then went off for a day, its been on for a week now. Also, when I'm at a stop it takes a while to go, like its not accelrating the way it normally does. I'm taking it to the dealer tomorrow, but does anyone have any thoughts on this. and the possible costs I may accur?

If you have a warranty they dealer will tell you its your fault and void your warranty work to force you to pay out of pocket. Warranty companies pay a dealer much less that what the dealer will charge you. Do not go to a dealer, take it to a local mechanic and get him to work on it.

Overdrive light flashes

By the sounds of it that could be the solenoid that operates the overdrive that has malfunctioned or there's a bad earth or a broken fuse - its electrical though that's for sure -- you may need to see a mechanic for that one unless your good at diy :)
Hope you get it going :)
