#2050 of 2771 temperture gauge rises often
Jul 03, 2006 (11:41 am)
Hi, my name is Chris, I have 2001 nissan pathfinder. I have problems with my temperture gauge rising to hot zone. I took it a mechanic, he told me it was my clutch fan. Had it replace, but still having the same problems. I hosed out the radiator from the back for any debris, but still nothing. Also my dashboard lights go out from time to time, anyone having the same problems, any advice? Please help. Thanks,

I had this problem with my '01 - but only the front drivers side. Probably because that was the only that I really used with any frequency. It was much worse in the winter when it got cold...to the point where the window wouldn't go down all the way. The dealer told me that the guides got gummed up easily. They cleaned them on two different occasions and it did make a difference. Luckily they didn't charge me for it, even though the warranty had expired.
#2052 of 2771 Front Frame Cross Member?
Jul 10, 2006 (7:07 am)
I'm new here and have a rather serious problem. I wrecked the front end of my 01 SE 3.5 and now am trying to fix it all. The problem spawns from the need for a new front cross-member. It runs across the front of the frame, and is welded on (at least on mine.) So far I have yet to be able to find ANYTHING pertaining to this part. If you have any ideas, sources, or information, then I would be appreciative. Thanks.

#2054 of 2771 Cigarette Lighter 2000 Pathfinder
Jul 10, 2006 (7:56 am)
Neither of my cigarette lighters in my 2000 Pathfinder LE work. I got the vehicle used, and the lighters have never worked. I tried looking for a blown or missing fuse, but cannot make heads or tails of the diagrams beside the steering wheel or under the hood. Any help is greatly appreciated!

The CD player in my 2000 Pathfinder LE won't accept CD's. It doesn't seem to skip, but rather holds the CD's inside for a few seconds, then spits them back out. I got the vehicle used, and the CD player has always done this. Any ideas?
#2056 of 2771 2006 Pathfinder Trailer Lights
Jul 11, 2006 (6:45 am)
My boat trailer lights worked fine at first, then, after trailering 300 miles, only the running lights worked - no turn signals or brake lights. After setting out at 6:00 PM, I turned on the lights when it got dark and nothing on the trailer worked. I've never seen trailer light function go out piecemeal like this. When I stopped for gas, I checked the manual and the found the fuse box in the engine compartment. It has what appear to be flashers for left trailer turn, right trailer turn, trailer running lights, trailer brakes, etc. This would explain the sequential failure of the functions. There is also a 15 amp fuse that was blown, but it couldn't have been the sole cause because of the way the trailer lights failed. I have a friend with a 2005 Pathfinder and he has had no trailer light function the first 2 times he tried to hook up a trailer. Has anyone else experienced these problems? I haven't been to the dealer yet and can't check the fuse replacement until I hook up my boat again. This fusing/flasher set up looks overly complex - usually one fuse handles everything with the trailer. BTW, I really love the Pathfinder in all other respects. It's the best towing vehicle I've ever used.

Thank you for posting this. I believe I'm having the same problem with my '03 PF. I had brake problems pretty much since the day I drove the PF off the lot. The dealer never resolved the issue but after awhile I noticed uneven ware on my front tires. This past Aug I put on 4 new tires (the same as you ironically). Since then I had the same vibration problem. The tires were balanced twice. No one could find a problem after that and the vibration, although much less that originally, still occurs, especially at speed. It's now been a while and I'm hearing what sounds like loose parts in the front suspension when ever the suspension is fully extended. I've been planning to take it into the dealer again but I've been trying to convince myself what it is. I'm going in assuming I too have a bad strut.
Thanks again. I just fell better reading your note. It sounds all to familiar.
