#558 of 2519 2001 NISSAN QUEST PASSENGER DOOR LOCK
Dec 03, 2000 (2:37 am)
I just bought my 3rd Nissan Quest. I went out to
dinner and tried to open the passenger door with
the key. Low and behold no lock cylinder on the
passenger side. Anybody know if this is a brilliant
engineering decision? My 1999 had a key cylinder
on both front doors. Do they expect me to always
use the remote key door opener? Any body noptice
this with their new Quest?

The sliding doors on our 99 Quest have frozen shut for the 2nd time in a week. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a solution- other than moving south? The van was driven through heavy rain and then the temps plunged. The doors were not locked. Very frustrating!

If the problem is the steal frame sticking to the seal (rubber gasket) around the door this is easily fixed. Purchase from your local hardware store a can of silicone spray. Spray it on the seal making sure you don’t get it on anything but the seal. It can make the paint job feel greasy. This will prevent ice and sticky stuff from forming.
If the rollers or the roller arms on the door are getting stuck then take it to your dealer ASAP while it is still stuck. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Just purchased a new 2000 Quest on Dec 20, 2000 with the 3.9% interest deal. Wouldn't have otherwise. Drove it home and parked it in the garage. Wife loved it when she followed the red ribbon across the living room floor and out to the garage. The ribbon was as big as the rear hatch door.
Haven't had it long enough to have problems. Did get lots of oooohhsss and aaaahhsss from the neighbors when fitting it into the garage. It's a little bigger that her old '94 Altima.
Dark Blue and Quicksilver and loving it.
If anyone out there is reading this thinking if they should purchase a Quest let me tell you. We have had 7 Nissans over the years and there is a reason for purchasing another one. RELIABILITY! AAA not needed with a Nissan...
#563 of 2519 1999 Nissan Quest accelerator gets stuck sometimes
Dec 27, 2000 (6:01 am)
I have 1999 Nissan Quest GXE. It has little over 20000 miles. My accelerator gets stuck sometimes at 0 miles speed. It never happened when I am moving. This does not happen always. Does any body have the similar problem?

I've never had anything like this (same van as yours; 47k). Can you describe the symptoms with a bit more detail? It kinda sounds like a sticking throttle caused by carbon buildup in the throttle body....

Do you mean that the throttle sticks OPEN, so that the engine rpm's don't drop down to idle? Or do you mean that the throttle sticks CLOSED, so that you have to push hard on the gas pedal to speed up the engine?
If it is the latter, it most likely is carbon buildup in the throttle body. I have had this happen on my 99 Quest several times. Every 10,000 miles or so I have to clean it out with spray solvent.
There was a previous post on how to do this, but I'll be darned if I can find it now. If this is your problem and you want to try cleaning it yourself, let me know and I'll post instructions on how I did it.
Hope this helps.
#566 of 2519 Throttle Plates Sticking

Vijjis it sounds like your throttle plate is sticking from carbon build up like Steve and Doff stated in the above posts ... Cleaning the build up off of you throttle plates is easy to do... Something that you may want to do at home..

I just signed papers for 2001 Quest GXE (w/ comfort plus). Is $23K a good deal or i got ripped off? I looked around the web, and I feel stupid for not paying little less. And no CD player in the van.. i just saw the CD button on the dashboard and assumed that CD is there.. am I alone who thinks that it's misleading to have a CD wired dashboard and no CD player?
