#2225 of 2519 99' Nissan Quest with no heat in rear
Dec 30, 2005 (10:02 pm)
I just put a downpayment on a 1999 Quest GLE. While checking it out, we found the rear vents didn't deliver heat, only cool air. Sales guy said they were just for A/C, but this doesn't sound right. Is it true, or does the vehicle have a problem? Also, the stereo's display is out. Can't see station, etc. Is this a costly repair, or not a big deal? Thanks so much... great forum here.

Yes, on the 99 & up Quest the top vents are for AC only. There are small vents under the front seats that supply heat to the rear passengers.
I've heard of the radio display problem before and it can be reparied. There's a website (shareamemory.com I think) where they sell instructions to fix it.
#2227 of 2519 Driver side door lock/window control
Jan 03, 2006 (1:27 pm)
Here's a good one. My drivers' side door lock/window control panel does not illuminate with the lights switched on. 96 Villager. The internal lamp is burned out. It looks nearly impossible to replace that lamp and the dealer thinks that the whole control switch assy. needs to be replaced for that problem. I have a hard time believing that a 25 cent lamp is not accessible. Plz tell me it ain't so. What kind of an engineer would allow that to happen!!?? Anyone able to replace this lamp?

Ok guys, help me out here. 1st problems was no heat. Husband replaced the thermostat. While working on it, went to reverse the car and heard a loud thud. Then, no reverse. Took it to the crook, auto repair shop...rebuilt my trans $1350.oo. Went to pick it up, ran horrible. Told me I needed a knock sensor and TPS throttle position sensor. Would be a few days, bring the car back. Tols me I could drive it. Went 4 miles roundtrip to the store, no heat again. Car overheating. Came home to find no coolent, all over the garage floor. Took it back, they claim it was the gaskets replaced, $250. Called yesterday, they don't have the tps sensor, and now feel we can wait on the knock sensor. CAR WAS DRIVING FINE, IDLED A BIT HIGH...BUT NOW ALL THIS!!! Any suggestions?????

#2230 of 2519 2005 QUEST VIBRATING OVER 60 MHP
Jan 04, 2006 (1:02 pm)
I own a 2005 Quest with approx 18,000 miles on it. Have been to dealer 2X, told both front axles had to be replaced, van still vibrates over 60, my teeth actually chatter!!!
Gets worse as you go faster, totally goes away at 58 MHP. Tires rotated, balanced, brakes new.
Going to dealer again!

We just got an estimate for $1080.29 to replace part of the manifold that is cracking on our 99 Villager with 96k. Don't know if any of the bolts were broken but it seems I read about this problem, which is why I'm looking here tonight.
#2233 of 2519 Cracked Manifold 99 Villager
Jan 04, 2006 (5:41 pm)
The rear section of manifold has a crack in it, the estimate is for $1080 from our local Ford dealer. Is this something that should be done by the dealer? I've been told that the engine has to be dropped to fix this, is there anything else that should be done while the engine is dropped, like the other section of manifold, timing belt, other belts? I hate to spend this much money on our van that has 96,000 miles, we were starting to think of replacing it soon, I guess will be holding on to it longer now. Thanks
