#1782 of 2065 2000 Sentra XE Air Conditioner/Heater
Jun 07, 2005 (2:01 pm)
Has anyone else had a problem with their 2000 Nissan Sentra's air conditioner where it is sort of ``stuck'' in the heat mode?
The other day when I was trying to turn the a/c down while driving, I accidentally turned it too far, all the way up to heat. When I turned it back to cool, it remained stuck with the heat coming out of the vents at full force. I pulled the knob off, thinking it was broken, but it works fine, so its not a simple broken knob issue. Even with the the fan and a/c off and the dial on the coolest, heat pours out as if the heat was still on and the fan at full blast.
I have an appointment on Saturday to have it checked out but the mechanic had never heard of this happening before either. I'm just curious if anyone else has had this and what the result was? .... it's a little annoying that they will charge $89 just to look at it, and living in Florida I just can't ignore it. It would be one thing if the air was not blowing cold or the a/c failed to work, but blowing in hot air in 90 plus temps just doesn't cut it.
#1783 of 2065 Where is my horn?
Jun 08, 2005 (9:03 am)
I have a 2001 Sentra and the horn died slowly over the past few months. It started by becoming weak, then it would work on and off, now it doesnt work at all. I checked the fuses and they are fine. My father checked it out, but couldnt seem to find the horn under the hood! Would anyone be able to describe where it would be? Thanks!

The temb knob controls a cable which in turn controls a heater valve. More then likely, the cable stretched or broke, thus not allowing you to shut the heater valve. It happens.

I got a 2005 1.8s with SPecial Edition package for $15500, before adding the rebates. I got the $1500 with 2% APR. They are dealing on these and the Spec Ed package is bargain. The disount from the sticker made it virtually free.
#1786 of 2065 brakes locking for Nissan Sentra 2005, 1.8S auto w/o ABS
Jun 20, 2005 (8:12 am)
At the beginning of May we bought a Sentra 1.8S, auto, w/o ABS.
Last week, after about 1400 miles, my wife and I were driving on the highway
at about 75mph; she tried to break gently reduce her speed because there was
a slower car in front of us, when the brakes locked and the car stopped very abruptly.
We were lucky that nobody rear-ended us. We went to the dealer, and he said there
is nothing wrong with the brakes. Last week, my wife was driving the car on a street
at about 30mph, when she had to break and the same thing happened. In both cases, we didn't slam the brakes, yet they locked Did anybody
hear about such problems w/ the Sentra ?

You were luckier than me, my cd got stuck and never played again. I pulled the radio out, disassembled the radio, and discovered that a spring had come loose from the top of the CD holder. That is the weird clicking noise you are hearing, the CD is trying to eject, but that spring is gone, and the holder will not pop up to release your CD. I went aftermarket and got a Pioneer supertuner, and after a few mods, got it to fit. Best bet is if its under warranty, get them to replace it, or go to ebay and get one.
#1788 of 2065 Re: Hidden Fee on New Sentra? [sara7]
Jun 22, 2005 (7:13 pm)
When you finance a vehicle, the finance company buys your contract from the dealer for a disounted amount.For example, if you buy a car and finance $10,000, the finance company will buy that contract from the dealer for $9,500 While these fees vary widely from state to state, dealer to dealer, and credit score to credit score, what it sounds like in your situation is that the dealer is passing that fee over and above the negotiated price. Most just bury it into the sticker price. Thats also why you can always get a better price paying cash.

I had a 93 nissan truck that did the same thing, I am not sure if it is the same design, but if it is, the temp control lever has disconnected from the cable. If you remove the control panel from your dashboard enough to get behind it, you should be able to reconnect the cable. If you had the same problem i did, it was stuck, you pulled really, really hard, and then it moved easier than it ever had. If thats the case, its just a matter of popping that cable back on. I think it took about 10 minutes, and all i needed once i got behind the control panel was a pair of pliers to reconnect the cable. I just never took the heat all the way over after that, and it never was an issue again.
By the way, on my truck it was a Horizontal control panel, not a clockwise panel.
Hope that helped
