Nissan primera 2005 1.8 sx goes limp mode at night with lights and wipers on. No measurable battery or charger problems. Switch off lights and the problem goes away instantly.


The only thing these components have in common is the ground wires. There are many grounds on a vehicle. But the main three are the battery to body, battery to engine and engine to body. These are fairly large wires/cables. They should be checked with an ohm meter. I replace or repair any wires that have more than 5.0 ohms of resistance.

There are two possible candidates here, both of which you claim to have "checked" as good. They are the ECT (Coolant Sensor) or the thermostat. As the gauge works "occasionally and when it does fuel mileage is much improved", I would take the cheap route and change the T-stat and see what happens. If the thermostat is intermittent sticking in a wide open condition, this will result in the inability of the engine to regulate its coolant temperature. Engines run more efficiently at higher block temps because it aids in the combustion process. Many DIYers often change out 180 degree thermostats for 195 degree ones because they see marked improvement in power and fuel mileage. The ECT samples the temperature of the coolant and sends a signal to the PCM. The PCM uses that to determine rate of fuel delivery and also sends the signal to the temperature gauge on the instrument panel. A cooler engine needs more fuel, thus the decrease in gas mileage. You don't mention anything about the vehicle running rough, so I'm assuming that the ECT has it right. If the ECT were faulty and the engine were warmer than the ECT says, you would probably start having running issues since the engine would be running too rich, and that could possible even set error codes and the Check Engine Light.

The eco light is always on


Hi there:
The ECO light comes on when the engine is operating in the peak parameters for best fuel mileage (economy). This is based on engine load, transmission gear, vehicle speed, and engine RPM.


Keeping in the parameters to keep the ECO light turned on when possible will gain you the best fuel mileage.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.


Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I've had my 2005 Grand Cherokee into the dealer 5 times for the same issue and they've replaced a bunch of stuff, but have not found the problem yet. A quick fix, I've found, is to jiggle the key in the ignition. Doesn't fix the problem, but it does stop everything from going crazy! Let me know if anyone has the actual fix.

I could not find anything about it in the manual, but it does seem like it's part of the sequence when resetting a maintenance required light comes on. I can't help but think your odometer is electronically resetting one of the trip meters.

Gas light stays on even when tank is full


the float sensor attahced to your fuel pump sounds as though it is not working properly. Usually this occurs when the car rides on E many times and becomes damaged. depending on the model it may be necessary to replaced the sensor assembly or if it is the complete unit the whole fuel pump.

Also, depending on your driving habits your car can use more gas if your are driving in traffic (stop and go). Average out your fuel mileage by filling up a few times and keeping a log of the gas consumed. Do this by reseting the trip meter when you fill up and when you fill up again divide the total mileage on your trip meter by the amount of gas you used by getting the amount of gallons it took to fill up again. ex. 360miles divided by 10gals = 36 miles per gallon.

note. make sure you check your air filter (is it clean?) and tire pressure (32psi) these can be contributing factors to poor gas mileage

Yes. Have autozone tell you what the code means and go from there. Could be a problem with your water pump spracket or engine temperature coolant sensor or something else.

The bulbs are replaceable you need to remove the instrument gauge assembly to get to the bulbs.As for the blinking o/d light that usually means there is a problem.That should be looked at by some one with diagnostic tools.
