I used ohmmeter to find the damage. BTW, I had the same problem second time. And second time it happened in a similar place as a first one. there is piece of metal wire soldered in a middle of surface resistive material. This piece looks like a horseshoe somewhat. The wire is soldered to pads and then go through narrow trace to the resistor. In both cases this narrow trace was burned out. First time on one side of the wire. Second time on another side. I just cleared the lacquer on both sides of damage and put big blob of solder over it.

I bought my Sentra wagon new in '88 and after about 340,000 miles I can say it is by far the best car I have ever owned. Except for routine stuff the sum of my problems are:
one clutch (replaced myself)for 80 bucks.
one compressor (also replaced myself)250 bucks.
One radiator (replaced plastic one with brass one from an earlier model) 25 bucks. I think '88 on up had plastic. NOTE. Watch out if you have an old car. The plastic radiator can burst without warning.
And the cv joints almost last forever if you pay attention to them. Of course a car can't endure 20 southern summers sans garage without showing its age, but it is sound under the hood. And if you have a new car and can afford to have the paint sealed, do it. I believe the key to getting the most out of a car is LET IT REACH OPERATING TEMP BEFORE YOU MOVE IT. All the time. Not just winter. Another perk is, they made a bazillion of that type, so there is a never ending used parts supply.
To those of you who believe in keeping cars forever, rock on. You know where I'm coming from. We are a dying breed. I can tell you this, if I must someday buy another car, it will be a Nissan.
#2016 of 2065 foggy windows inside

Not leaking antifreeze and no smell of it...windows get extremely excessive amounts of moisture when it gets colder out. All heating and a/c controls seem to work properly. Anyone experience this problem.

here's a problem i had with my sentra that may relate.
when the car gets warm inside, which it will do even on cold sunny days, all the vinyl inside releases an odorless vapor which evenly coats all the glasswork with a film that is invisible on warm days, but in cool weather attracts moisture very easily.
when you get in the car, all the moisture you release, and whats already in the car really fogs up all the glasswork. when the heater gets hot enough the fog goes away, but the vinyl vapor film remains, ready to fog again the next time the car cools off. its not really easy to get off without using windex. more expensive cars use some kind of treatment that prevents the problem. unfortunately, the problem will persist until the car is old and grey.

#2019 of 2065 The Dilemma of a low-mileage buying opportunity
Nov 19, 2007 (6:04 pm)
I've got my eye on a 2006 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V, with less than 3,000 miles, selling for under $12,000. Car is practically new...so I'm immediately suspicious. I read the description:
LOW MILES ORIGINAL...6-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION...MOON-ROOF...STILL HAS THE BRAND NEW CAR SMELL...NO FLOOD DAMAGE...NO FRAME DAMAGE...NO COLLISION DAMAGE...[here we go]...THIS VEHICLE WAS A PREVIOUS THEFT-RECOVERY...INSURANCE COMPANY WROTE THIS CAR OFF AS TOTAL LOSS...
I'm trying to assess the risk of a car that was the subject of a theft. Should one go on auto-pilot and run away as fast as possible, or is there an opportunity here? I have the VIN and can find the details of the crime. It's being sold by a local broker.
I'm grateful for any input...

maybe i will try a couple good scrubbings with windex then if this doesn't help then i wonder if an anti-fog spray just might do the trick, like u can get for safety glasses and snowmobile helmet shields.
