#1890 of 2065 It didn't work...what next to do
Jan 06, 2006 (10:51 am)
I went to the dealership and purchased a new resistor and put it on while I was there. I was so happy to see the blower work properly. So I went to auto zone, got the engine light recycled and much to my amaze, noticed that the controller was not working again. The engine light later turned on again and I'm back at square one.
What should I do next? I was thinking of having it diagnosed again for free with Auto Zone and let them tell me what they notice what's wrong and go from there, unless you have another suggestion.

#1891 of 2065 Just learned....
Jan 06, 2006 (1:52 pm)
Just learned that because I didn't put it in its casing, where its kept cool when the AC is on, the resistor went bad on me. The service tech said that it will take about a week in warm air. The temp. today was around the mid 50's and it only took about 1/2 hr. to go bad. I'm so confused. I think I'm going to pull another one out of an wrecked Nissan and try it out again before I go out and buy a new one.

#1893 of 2065 Sentra 2001 2 liters electrical problems
Jan 14, 2006 (6:08 pm)
The problems started about a year ago and are getting worse with time. First the horn became intermittent. Then the parking brake light would come on unwarranted during driving. The cruise control also kicks out by itself intermittently.
About one month ago things got worse. The automatic shift lever stays stuck in park with, so I cannot shift into gear. The parking lights come on by themselves and I have to turn the light control swithch ON to turn the lights off.
Finally, this week, the battery went dead and the repair shop said that the alternator ws not charging. Upon dissambling the alternator, they found nothing wrong it The tested it, pût it back in and the battery still does not get charged.
My dealer has looked at the car five times so far and has not been able to solve the intermittent problems.
Am I the only problem with weird, intermittent electrical problems?

We are having the same problem with our Sentra. Was it the safety switch? Thank you.

The Alternator is now charging the battery correctly. Nothing was done to fix this; it just came back on normal by itself. However, nothing comes free. Now, the shift lever solenoid still does not work so we manually insert a key into the provided slot to disanguage the lever off the Park position. When the alternator came back on, we realized taht we had lost the rear window defogger and the windows lowering and raising switches do not work anymore.
This is so ridiculous its almost funny.
Where is thesafety switch located?
#1896 of 2065 2001 sentra GXE alternator problems
Jan 21, 2006 (2:22 pm)
On my way to work, my headlights blew out, and the battery and brake light came on.
According to the general consensus here, when the battery and brake light come on, the alternator is shot. Another guy had his alternator overcharge and blow out his lights on the forums too.
I replaced the alternator, but the battery and brake light is still on. I see 3 fuseboxes on the car. One driver side under the dash, one under the hood on the driver side, and one under the hood on the pass side, but I dont' see any fuses that would seem to be blown. Am I just missing the fuse, is it there? If so, whats it labled as? What else could it be if its not the fuse? Thanks in advance.

I have two 2001 Sentras with the gear shift light out. Nor have I figured out how to take it apart to fix it. It looks like it ought to be easy once you know the trick.
#1899 of 2065 97 Nissan Sentra engine knocks
Feb 09, 2006 (11:14 am)
I'm considering buying a 97 Sentra, it has 168K miles, but seems to be a clean little car. The major concern that I have it the engine is knocking, kind of like a lifter noise. It seems to run and drive good, but I don't want to get into a money pit. Any advice????
