Question about 1994 Nissan Quest

1 Answer

I have a 1994 Nissan Quest. Recently, the radio started to go off and then on, intermittently. Now it is off more than it is on. I have checked the fuses and the wiring to the radio and have found no breaks or cuts. The power to the rest of the items - hater, ash tray, fan, etc are not affected. It does not appear to be affected by temperature, but of this I am not sure. Any information will be helpful. Thank you Bill

That symptom indicates a short or loose connection. The problem here is that it could be inside the radio itself. You were correct to check fuses and wiring but may need to trace further back into the fuse panel. In order to bypass the ignition and fuse panel and isolate the problem further, locate a constant hot or run a wire directly from the positive battery terminal back to the radio and connect the radio with that and see if the problem persist. If the problem does continue then you know it is in the radio as you have eliminated the other circuits. If it stops then you know you have further troubleshooting to do to locate the short or problem.

I have an intermittent heating problem with my 1994 (1993) Nissan Maxima 3.0i SE Automatic. Having recently had a coolant leak and refilled the radiator, the heating temperature which was always excellent,...

You definitely have air trapped. Take it to a shop with evacuate/fill equipment where they create a vacuum in the system and then that let's the system **** in the coolant mix and fill all the air gaps. If you go to the yahoo group for villager quest, you will find the procedure to purge air.

Where is the 4 channel amp located in the 94 nissan quest.?I am trying to install a stereo and there is no sound due to the amp. I need to know how to wire with the built in amp.

I just installed an after market radio in my 94 Quest.
The easiest way is to buy a Nissan Quest Radio Wiring Harness for Premium Sound. It will have the complete wire hookups. You can also hook up the blue wire from the new radio to thefactory (I think Blue or Blue/White) wire on the harness. That will turn the factory amp on.Hope this helps ,good luck

Changing water pump on 1994 nissan quest

There is no easy way, water pumps are hard to change on this vehicle. Before starting the job I would buy a repair manual with step by step instructions. To give you some idea on how long it may take, the labor time is 4.5 hours for an experienced tech.
