#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.

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

TomCat, We just bought the 1.8 S, with the Special package, auto, sun roof, ABS, side airbags, mats, filter and mudflaps for an out the door price of $15,500, ($250 over invoice - $2500 rebate + 7% tax, 32.50 title and registraction). One of the easiest purchases we've ever made. The sticker was $18090.

#1792 of 2065 Excessive flat tires
Jun 26, 2005 (6:46 pm)
We have a 2001 Sentra, basic model, with about 53K miles. My husband has had at least 4 flat tires, 3 of which were in the same location (driver side, rear tire). He's not a particularly hard driver, has tires rotated, etc., so it seems rather "coincidental" (?) that he has had 3 in the same location - at least 2 of which started with steering vibration, especially when braking, but the tires appeared fine. Has anyone else had similar problems?

Thanks Ingtonge18! I took the car back to the mechanic and he said I had a bad build up of carbon deposits. He suggested an induction and intake flush. The car runs better since I had the flush.
#1795 of 2065 Sweating to death!
Jun 28, 2005 (5:26 pm)
I fix one problem and another one appears. Now my air conditioning and my car will not run at the same time. When I turn on the air conditioning on the lowest setting and drive for five minutes or so and stop at a light my car starts shaking like it is about to cut out. I've always turned off the air and the car would stop shaking. Today I wanted to see if it would cut off and it did. Help?
