but don't just take my word here, the EGR route is one possible cause. You should really have a knoweldgeable mechanic there when your car stalls. When I had an EGR Valve tube clogged up, the car was mostly stalling on cold mornings and was shaking real bad before eventually stalling. If yours cuts off without any shaking then this can definitely be something else... Good luck and don't you wonder why these things don't happen to Honda Accords.

Contemplaing buying a 2006 SL. Has anyone had luck with using a phone not listed in Nissan's website as compatible? I have a Treo 650 and wonder if it will work and if so to what extend. I'm a bit miffed that Bluetooth isn't the "standard" it is marketed to be.

Mar 20, 2006 (6:03 pm)
Hi, anybody know how to disable a 1996 security system? I lost our remaining keyfob and since it is an old car I would like to simply disconnect the alarm and use my key for locks. Is there a fuse that I would be able to disconnect??

Bad brake rotors were my problem on my 04 SE. Also, anyone who puts a car bra on their car is asking for trouble period. They ruin your paint! I had one on my 87 Mustang GT years ago and it ruin the pigmentation. If you keep it on there all the time and take it off you will tell the difference in your paint. Dark to light. I put on the clear 3M car bra film. A pain in the butt and lots of patience but it did the job and looks a lot better!
#3191 of 4184 8 years / 80K Miles Warranty ???
Mar 21, 2006 (9:28 am)
Hi, I saw a few posts where an 8year/80K miles warranty was mentioned on a 2K Maxima. I could not find any reference of this coverage from the manufacturer. Is it true that certain parts are covered this long by the manufacturer on this vehicle? If you have information then please reply and if this is true then what components are covered? Can you provide a link to this information on the internet? Thanks

if this is a built-in security system then using the key is fine without the remote but it sounds like this is something you added to the car yourself and in this case there is usually a button somehwere close to the fuse panel below the steering column. Most alarams come with some button to disable it. You turn the ignition on and press that button to disable it.

I found the information myself. For those interested - Nissan covers the ECM(Engine Computer Module) and Catalytic Converter(s) for 8 years/80K miles under the Federal Vehicle Emission Control Warranty.

I have been recently having this problem (without the starting problems) cali. emmissions here . Anyways I replaced my rear catalytic conv and the code came back. I am curious if I replace the precat and o2 sensors possibly with a performance y-pipe will this effect the ECU or even my NY state inspection. ALso I would love to be able to find a diagram of the entire exhaust system on my car. The Haynes manual does not have one.
