Where are the resistors located?
I checked everything I could find through the owners manual and instrument layout.
#2291 of 2519 Engine stop?
Feb 19, 2006 (5:08 pm)
I have a Nissan quest GXE 99 ~116000mile and so far no major problem... Today, when I drove on highway, several times rpm changed rapidly. normally, ~2000rpm showed but at that time, move down to ~700 then jump up to normal. Then, just before I parked my car, rpm showed ~1000 pressing brake, suddenly rpm moved 500 ~ 1200then engine stopped with all warning light on. Fortunately, I could get turn engine on without any problem. From that, at most crossing, whenever I stopped my car, engine stopped. But still no problem to engine on. No strange smell, all oil are enough. Please help me.
P.S.: sorry for bad expression but it is really hard to describe.

Sorry I forgot to mention several things. It happened after engine warmed up such as after driving ~20 min,then it happened. Another thing, after turned on engine, I can hear some squeeze sound something like small metal chip danced in the engine. I hope it help to find.

I have a 98 Villager and 00 Quest. Both have burned-out bulbs on the dash display. My mechanic told me he doesn't want to rip me off by taking the dashboards apart to replace the bulbs so I haven't fixed them. Let me know if you find a cheap way to do it, thanks!

our 98 villager just started doing strange things with the power door locks - at any given time, some lock/unlock and some don't, but there's no problem with the brake light.

Hi Steve or any other villager experts.. can someone please give me some direction on my query below? THANKS
A/C compresssor stopped working on my 96 villager. Initially i thought I may have low refrigerant level so checked the pressure on the "recharge valve" with engine running and it shows 75psi, which is too high. Does it mean I have a clogged line? Is there anythign obvious i can check before taking it to the mechanic? (mechanic will charge $40 just to look at it and then the "other" charges will start..) Thanks for help in advance

You must mean a different Steve , but I looked through my '99's service manual. Looks like any number of things could be the problem, including a bad compressor, low pressure switch stuck open, restricted or plugged suction line, orifice O rings leaking, moisture or excessive lubricant in the system, loose compressor belt, slipping or seized compressor clutch, clutch coil open (shorted or loose), A/C relay (dirty contacts or stuck open) or compressor operation interrupted by ECM (not even sure if your '96 has a full blown ECM).
