I have a new fault developed with my Nissan

I have a new fault developed with my 2002 Nissan Terrano. The Speedo has now developed a fault and doesn't work, the needle now points directly down as if it's gone over the maximum limit and is just hanging there!
Strangely enough the rev counter that used to point down and didn't work, has now decided to move to the under side of the restrictor pin. The digital clock, milage and trip counter went off for a moment and after a re-start worked fine again. Could this need a new/replacement dashboard fitting or could it be a short circuit when starting?
Any help you can offer would be much appreciated. Thanks in Advance.

    Good advice, until I can get a replacement I've gone for a temporary fix by removed the bottom panel above the drivers pedals, then the speedo surround and then the clear plastic that protects the dials.

    I then glued a small pin on each of the two dials (speedo & rev counter) near the centre and in line with dial when it's at the resting point this limits the distance that it travels by restricting the counter balance at the back end.

    It's unlikely that I'll be travelling at a speed of over 80 MPH or in excess of 4,500 RPM and so far it works. It seemed that after a few tests the power surge at start-up causes the dials to spin and not return, this should fix the problem.

    I used small nails about 10mm long and covered them with black permanent marker, it looks like they are part of the dial.

I have problem with my Nissan terrano 2 mechanical gearbox. It's hard to put to 1st gear. From 1'st to 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, are also hard. Is it necessary to change clutch?


not a clutch problem unless you have just done a clutch kit change
more likely a hydraulic clutch problem ( air in the system) or master cylinder needing replacement .
if it is a cable operated clutch , replace the clutch

Nissan terrano owners club


what fault code do you have. If you changed the crankshaft sensor you also need to change the camshaft sensor, they go hand in hand.

Nissan Terrano Diesel 55 plate engine management light comes on 10 mins after first journey and sounds like a diesel knock although does not seem to effect performance and there is no excessive smoke.


Probably you might face a problem on the injection pump with the Advance or retar positioning,and I believe that is controlled by the vehicle ECU. The Diesel Knocking you receive should be this fault.

Possibly the "Mass airflow sensor". I had a similar problem, basically the car behaved like it didn't have a turbo and was really slow. Unfortunately the Mass airflow sensor is expensive, about AU$800. Only failed once several years ago. Hope this helps.

Nissan Terrano II 2000 Speedo not working


you can remove the speedo from the dash flip it over to where you can see the gears in side and the contacts try cleaning them out real good with spray air for computer keyboards, the spray a little lubricant on them put back in and see if this helps it move a little better.
