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 (7:46 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.

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?

We've had no a/c for the past 1 1/2 weeks basically. It works weakly in the morning and when the sun goes down, but only hot air during the daytime. Nissan said the part we need is on back order. A very nice car that has nickled and dimed us this past year. Hopefully tomorrow, our new Mazda3 s will get to the dealership and we'll say a goodbye to our '01 Altima GXE Ltd. Edition. We really did like our Alty, but with 80k miles fast approaching, it's just not running properly. The Mazda is nice, but our Alty really is the perfect car for us...when it's working.
It's been a nice 4 1/2 year run, but it's time to move on. Hope everyone has better luck than we did. Good luck guys...we're zoom zooming outta here!
#1797 of 2065 Service engine soon problem
Jul 04, 2005 (6:18 pm)
Hello, I'm new here and this is my first post. I came across looking for help. My 2001 Sentra SE (2000cc, 5speed) has a problem. Service engine soon light come on about a week ago, I then put a chevron injection cleaner in the tank, Vpower from shell and went to milwaukee from chicago and after I got back in the car, the light went off. It came back the next day. Today I drove on highway again for short period of time, it went off again. I'm sure by the time I get home tonight, it will be back on. What can cause this to happen? There is no changes in driving performance. Thank you.

I have a similar problem with my Sentra....About every 10th time I go to start it, it just won't start...No sounds, no clicks, nothing...It is not the starter, or the battery, or fuses...If I push it forward (doesn't work backwards) about 10-15 feet and put it back in "park" and try again, it usually starts....It has been in the shop a number of times and the mechanic cannot figure it out....any suggestions?
