#47 of 485 AC Problems
Nov 07, 2004 (9:25 am)
I have a 2000 frontier XE 80K miles auto, my AC is not cooling, the fan seems to be working just like normal but no cool air, the on/off switch works and so does the compressor,i lifted the hood and checked,do I need a recharge? has anybody had this type of problem before? normally I would say a recharge but Nissans have a reputation for better reliability in this area,so if any body has had this type of problem any info would help thanks.

My 2004 does the same thing. While in cruise it will down shift on a flat road or a hill and will not upshift. It will climb steep hills and not downshift so I don't think it is a power issue. Then at other times it will downshift on a flat road or a slight incline. When it downshifts it will not upshift unless I press one of the cruise buttons. My dealer acknowledges that there is a problem and is looking at Nissan for help. I have driven identical trucks that do not do this. Comments are welcome.

#50 of 485 Resonating/vibration at idle.
Nov 30, 2004 (10:51 am)
My 02 XE 4X4 seems to have an annoying resonating or vibration sound at idle when at a stop light for example. If the transmission is shifted to neutral, the engine revs a little higher and the sound goes away or when I accelerate the sound goes away. Almost acts like it is idling too low. Has any one else had this problem and if so wonder what was done to fix it. I've only had the vehicle for a little over a month so not sure if this is normal or not.?

I have a 2001 frontier that developed similar AC problems,but mine developed at 51k miles. Have the dealer or an AC repair shop first run a diagnostic to check for leaks and the switch, before recharging. The problem with mine is the low end hose leaked. I agree that this is too soon for the AC to develop this kind of problem and should have lasted longer, and with a Nissan, this should have had better reliability.
#52 of 485 2002 Frontier SC - Weak Audio Bass in FM
Dec 05, 2004 (9:07 am)
I love this truck, pretty much perfect for my needs. Only one thing that has been annoying me since I bought it and that is the stereo.
This truck has the Rockford system and sounds great with CD's. When I listen to the radio it's almost like the subwoofer is completely non-functional. Even cranking the bass only results in a little life from the sub, and then a LOT of rumble when I play a CD.
Anyone know of any tricks to get the sub working with FM radio?

Nissan sent a "specialist" to check it out and it seems that there is a problem with the speed sensors. My sensor was replaced with another style and that has taken care of the problem. My dealer worked with me on this however it took a long time to get it fixed. Stay with it- they know that there is a problem. Good Luck
#54 of 485 Transmission Shifting when Cold
Dec 16, 2004 (6:44 pm)
Have 2004 Frontier 4 cyl automatic, 5500 miles. When cold, i.e. outside overnight at 30 degrees, does not shift out of low gear until have driven serveral blocks at 35 to 30 mph, RPM 3000. Once shifted, no problems until cold again. Dealer test drove, contacted Nissan Technical Hot Line, said this is normal operation for this vehicle. Would like the opinion of other Frontier 4cyl auto owners if this is normal. I have never experienced this in 45 years of driving other automatics.
#55 of 485 Air Conditioning Trouble
Dec 17, 2004 (9:37 am)
I have a 2001 frontier, with 51,000 miles...recently had trouble with the AC...it was only blowing hot air...brought it to the dealer, they did a diagnostic on it...first, the low end hose was leaking and this was replaced...after a few days, same problem again...further checking showed the evaporative coil behind the dash was also leaking...isn't this very early in the vehicle's life for this to occur? I had to bear the cost of repair...complained to Nissan, have not heard back...i do not expect a reply from them. There goes Nissan Quality..and customer service.
