Question about 2005 Nissan Frontier
I have a 2000 Nissan Frontier that just cuts off while driving. This happen more offer when it is really hot outside. When it shuts off, the whole dash board lights up. I can turn it off and let sit for 15-30 minutes and it will crack. I had it in the shop last week and they replaced the Fuel Pump. Two days later, the truck shut off again on my way home from work. It is now in the shop again. One of the Tech drove it on Monday and it cut off 3 times before he got it back to the shop. Once it was back at the shop it would not cut-off while running. The Tech could not get it to break down at all on Tuesday.
Def. sounds like the fuels sending unit.

The problem with your truck is not the fuel pump. Its the sending unit for the pump, which is on top of the fuel tank and feeds POWER to the fuel pump. Nissan has a campaign for it, because those units corrode internaly inside of the connector, that sends power to the fuel pump to power it up. Have the dealer run DCS check , to see if you have a open campaign for the sending unit. If you do, it will be free of charge and in some cases the whole fuel tank needs to be replaced also. However, that may not be your problem. I have seen ECM/computer getting flooded by the heater box. There is a drain tube, that drains your heater box, that tube gets clogged up by debriss/stuff and that's when water has no place to go and it leaks on top of you ECM/computer and fries it. Have you noticed any wetness on pass. side floor?? Right by the fire wall. Check it and make sure that its dry/carpet area at the top of the carpet behind the glove box. If its wet, that's not good. Let me know what you have found and will take it from there. Is the "Check engine light on" by chance?? Let me know.

the plastic around the gear shifter will pop up with a good pull, then turn it side ways to get over the shifter, then there are 2 screws the hold the bezel down around the radio and air vents, then just pull from the air vents it will pop off to reveil the screws to the radio

SOURCE: I have a 200 nissan
that sounds like you may have a transfer case that is about to drop dead. i would take that to a shop. that is the only solution. there are no quick fixes. good luck

hi i had same problem a few days ago brought to the dealership and turns out there is a clutch stop sensor that if it is not making contact will not allow you to start using the key part cost about $25 with labor it was $113 to be fixed at dealership seems it only last about 30-35k miles before breaking if yours is manual that could be your problem hope this helps

You don't hear it running when your turn the key on just before the crank position.
You have replaced the fuel filter and it was pretty much stopped up. (destroyed pump trying to pump through stopped up filter.)
Because it was going bad you couldn't drive fast because it wasn't pumping enough fuel.
Disconnect fuel line and see if fuel comes out when you turn the key on.
