Just had a camshaft sensor installed in my 2006 Nissan all of a sudden my remote start doesn't stay on more than 10 seconds when usually it stays on for 20 minutes...HELP 1111

Certain brands of remote starters come with a switch that is designed to temporarily disable the remote starter. The switch may be under your dash on the driver's side, or in a fusebox. It is NOT designed to be easily accessible. Many times it gets bumped accidentally, and all you have to do is switch it back on. Could the mechanics have accidently hit it

Go to local auto parts store and have them do a code check for you.  I know here where I'm at they do it for free, and can tell you right off the computer what the code is and possible things causing the code or codes.  Then you can go from there ad maybe fix it yourself, and save a ton of money.Here we have Auto Zone and Advanced Auto, they both do this for free.

04 murano right side engine rattle

Hello windy....There are a few thing on the murano that could cause this... one is the exhaust gussets that go to the bottom of the oil pan to the exhaust, they can crack and cause a rattling noise. Also I have seen the rear exhaust heat shield spot welds come loose and cause a rattling noise, from exhaust manifold down pipe on the cat. converter. I would check them first, also the park brake cable will lose tension and rattle on the undercarriage.
A more serious problem would be the timing chain and/or chain tensioners...these are known to make noise around 50-60k. The tensioners are operated from oil pressure, the face gets worn, the chain stretches and it results in a rattle or a slapping noise
Useing a full synthetic oil with regular maintaince will help prevent premature wear.
Good luck, i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya.

Murano 03 window control buttons not working

The driver's door switch...

Look at it... (poor thing)... is the most heavily used
and abused switch in the modern vehicles. EVERY
TIME the door is opened... rain, snow, coffee...

One of the more "popular" parts on eBay
(popular = high failure rate (in my opinion)).

Hello Monfar,

Most of the "new SWITCHES" I have seen appear
to be fully sealed... This one looks like it might be

There are also 10 technical service bulletins on the

If you are not going to purchase the proper soft tools

Loud noise (like a motorcycle) coming from 1994 Nissan Murano

check your exhaust system and your muffler. a noisy fuel pump doesn't make sense, especially because a new one didn't change anything. if your muffler even has a tiny hole in it, it would make immense amounts of noise. the fastest way to check it (and you have to be very careful here) is to cover the exhaust pipe entirely with your hand RIGHT after starting the car (so it's still cold) if your hand is pushed off by a lot of force building up, then your exhaust is fine, if your hand can stay there with no resistance, and the noise gets louder, there is a leak in the exhaust system

I bought a 05 Murano SL and two months later I heard a very slight clicking noise upon acceleration. I took it in to Nissa twice, they couldn't hear it. Well another two months later the transmission started making a loud clicking noise and turns out they had to replace the entire transmission (under manufactures warranty) - that tranny was on backorder so I drove a rental for 3 weeks til they got it in and replaced it. So since they were on backorder, i'm assuming there were many of these with tranny problems.

Driver window will not work

The black boxes inside the fuse box are indeed relays, which will make a clicking noise. The window buttons are merely contact switches, and if they quit operating properly, the window simply won't do anything, but I've never heard any noises come from one when it quit working. The relays can easily be replaced by hand, so go to a local auto parts store to see about purchasing one, and ask them to show you on their computer screen exactly which relay in your fuse panel is the one that controls the window circuits, and replace it yourself. It's very simple.
