#2002 of 2065 2003 Nissan Sentra locks up at intersection!
Aug 12, 2007 (6:38 pm)
I have owned a 2003 Sentra SE-R, automatic transmission for about a year now. It has about 21,000 miles and has ran well for me ever since I purchased the car. Recently, after driving about 20 miles on a warm day, I stopped at a traffic signal, and after a good while, when the signal turned green, I went to go accelerate to continue on down the road, and the car 'locked up'... the brake pedal was not depressed and would not depress when I put my foot on it... the car would also not go forward when I stepped on the gas. All the warning lights came on, and my brake warning light also came on. I coasted the car to the nearest parking lot, a few feet away, and turned off the ignition. After a few seconds, when I started the car again, it started okay. Has anyone heard of something like this happening before?

Mr. Skinny3 -
I didn't even read your post before posting mine. It seems as though we are having similar problems -- I'll be curious to see if anyone has a solution. Does your cousin's car start up again like normal after you turn the ignition again?

The car would always start right back up as if nothing happened.
Could you define for me what you meant by 'locked up'? Did you mean that the engine locked up, the brakes locked up, or the engine shutting off?

The engine stalled, and when that happened, it seems like the brakes also locked, and the car lost power. It seemed as though the engine was still running, but the car was not functioning and the check engine lights and other warning lights came on.
When I took the car to get fixed, the techs claimed they coudln't find anything wrong with the car, and that a diagnostic code was not set in the computer. They claimed that having a "scan card" on my keys for the grocery store would screw up the "security chip" on my keys and mess with the ignition switch. I don't know what to think -- I don't believe them.

first thing I'd do is find another mechanic.

Of course it requires a different air filter that dome on the front is the air filter. It replaces the stock airbox completely.

I FOUND THE INFO ON THE WEB. IT TAKES FIVE MINUTES TO REMOVE YOUR RADIO.I HAVE A 2003 SENTRA ALSO. HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS 1-DISCONNECT BATTERY TERMINAL. 2- SIT IN DRIVERS' SEAT. 3- OPEN STORAGE AREA ASSEMBLY AT TOP OF CONSOLE 4- GRAB THE EDGE OF THE STORAGE/ MAP SECTION AND PULL GENTLY OUT TOWARDS YOU.- NO SCREWS INVOLVED- 5- PLACE THE POCKETS/ MAP ASSEMBLY ON YOUR DASH. 6- THERE ARE (2)PHILIPS SCREWS SECURING THE POCKET ASSEMBLY BEHIND THE RADIO AND TWO PHIILIPS SCREWS UNDER THE RADIO. REMOVE THEM 7- THEN PULL OUT THE RADIO/CLIMATE ASSEMBLY GENTLY- EVERYTHING ALMOST FALLS OUT WITHOUT ANY HARD PULLING OR YANKING ON IT.. 8- REMOVE (4) T-25 TORX SCREWS FROM BRACKETS SECURING SIDES OF THE RADIO. THE TORX SCREW UNIT CAN BE BOUGHT AT ANY AUTO STORE FOR A COUPLE OF BUCKS. THE REST OF THE DISASSEMBLY IS EASY JUST TAKE YOUR TIME AND DONT USE ANY SCREWSDRIVERS TO PRY ANY OF THE PARTS OUT OF CONSOLE. I FOUND THE REMOVAL DIAGRAM ON THE WEB IN TEN MINUTES. UNFORTUNATELY I CANNOT RECALL THE SITE RIGHT NOW BUT WHEN I GET BACK TO MY OFFICE I WILL RESEND THIS MESSAGE WITH THE WEB SITE INFO IF YOU NEED IT. MY ORIGINAL RADIO IN MY SENTRA STOPPED PLAYING LEFT SIDE FRONT/BACK MUSIC SO I WENT TO THE JUNKYARD AND BOUGHT A 2005 SENTRA RADIO FOR $75.00 AND REPLACE IT. THE JUNKYARD RADIO SOUNDS REAL NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOOD LUCK. JUST REMEMBER WHERE EACH SET OF SCREWS ARE USED- SO USE A SMALL DIXIE CUP TO HOLD YOUR REMOVED SCREWS BECAUSE ARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SCREWS USED.

Can you tell me how you soldered the PCB. I extracted the PCB and there was very little (if any) visible damage. Where did you solder it? If it is not the resistor, any other idea what it might be and how to go about fixing it?
