#1839 of 2065 Considering a 2001 Sentra GXE Touring
Sep 12, 2005 (5:06 pm)
Hey everyone, Im looking at buying a used car within the 10000 price range. I have my eye on a nissan sentra. I found a deal for a 2001 Sentra GXE touring, 5 spd, loaded, 100000 km, for 7500$ (Cdn). Is this a good deal??
Does anyone have any suggestions about looking into purchasing a sentra, they seem like great cars to me, but i just wanna be sure. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

Sep 14, 2005 (12:30 pm)
Help, my battery died, I put the recharged battery back in the car and now all the inside electrical doesn't work! I found that the alternator is starting to fail but at the moment the car runs fine, just no radio, AC, windows won't open!! Fuses are fine... at least the five I looked at. Whats happening!!! Would a failing alternator cause this?

#1844 of 2065 2001 GXE Touring edition
Sep 14, 2005 (3:24 pm)
Hey, what is the GXE touring edition?? A dealer is syaing that a car is the 2001 GXE touring, but i cant find any information on the internet about this edition of the car. It looked like it is only offered in XE, GXE, and SE. What is special about the touring?

Sep 16, 2005 (6:54 pm)
I've been having a similar problem on my 2000 GXE with 50K miles on it. It started cutting off when I was slowing down to make a turn and downshifting from 3rd to 2nd. Starts right back up, but not fun stalling in the middle of a turn. It seemed to be ok if I didn't downshift through a turn. Then it started doing it more often and at random times when I was coming to a stop. I finally took it to a mechanic, and they said that it probably needed to have the computer reset, but that they couldn't do it...the dealer had to. A friend offered to do it (just unhooked the battery for a couple of minutes). That was last night, and so far, so good. I was also told that keeping the AC on helps because it keeps the rpm's higher.
I don't know if it's fixed, but I'm selling.
#1846 of 2065 Horn Stopped Working!
Sep 19, 2005 (7:25 am)
Any assistance would be appreciated. I own a 2001 Sentra GXE, 64K, No major problems, but the horn suddenly stopped working a few months back. No other issues related but I don't want to send to the shop if it involves something I can fix myself. I searched the boards and could not find anything. My safety inspection is due soon - much thanks.

I have a 95. This sounds dumb but, first check the fuse. Then look at the horn wires. Try it by hooking direct to battery. If horn works then you have a wire or switch problem. If not replace horn. Sometimes the ground fails due to rust. Sometimes wire fails and sometimes the switch in your steering wheel. I suspect the fuse or the horn itself. Think about electricity and trouble shoot.
#1848 of 2065 Can I use parts from a 93 Sentra on a 95?
Sep 20, 2005 (10:03 pm)
I live on an island in the South Pacific. Parts are hard to come by. I own a 93 Nissan Sentra 1.6 XE and a 95 same engine and model. I believe my ECM is failing on the 95. Can I put the 93 ECM in for troubleshooting purposes? Also are any of the parts interchangeable?
