Question about 1996 Nissan Quest

1 Answer

1996 Nissan Quest engine light on. Been to the mechanic within 4 days. First it was that it needed a part replaced than the light turned back on & went back & they said the car had to much oil, so they drained it & refilled it & than the next day its back on. Would like to know what the possible problem might be so I dont have to keep going back & they try to get more money out of me. Thanks.

SOURCE: Dashboard and tail lights out on 97" Nissan Sentra

I took my pathfinder to U-HAUL and asked them to check the towing lights. There was a pinched wire by my tail light and they cut it and changed it out for me, it was $5. I am so glad that I didnt take it to Nissan. My second step was going to be getting a new dimmer switch..but the guy who worked on my car said that wouldnt be the problem. He also told me that replacing a fuse that kept blowing out was dangerous and after the first time to get it checked out. Learn something new every day!!

Engine light staying on

Try tightening the gas cap. If this doesn't fix the problem you need to take it to a mechanic or dealer that can read the error code that is causing the light to stay on.

How do I check engine codes on a '93 Nissan Quest?

Here is a general description on retrieving codes.
You will need to check online for the actual codes and their meanings. Systems built before 1996 will not show much compared to OBD2 systems built after 1996.

Turn ignition key on.
On Pathfinder, Pickup and Van models, proceed as follows:
    1. Turn diagnostic mode selector on ECU to ON position and wait until inspection lamps flash.
    2. Note number of flashes, then immediately turn diagnostic mode selector to Off position.

1998 nissan quest stall at stop light, engine will not start. Engine will crank but not turning over.

Very difficult to advise here as the list of faults for this problem is numerous could be anything from a blocked cat to a temperature sensor and what you need is a mechanic to test drive it so the vehicle cuts on them then a good mechanic worth his salt will have a good idea what it is ,does it restart when cold ?? if so then the autochoke could be defective and in all honesty i couldnt tell you offhand with my head under the bonnet
