#2179 of 2475 Nissan Quest 2004 remote (alarm fuse)
Apr 12, 2007 (8:16 am)
Does anyone know where the fuse that controls the alarm/remote is?
My alarm keychains don't work anymore, both stopped working at the same time so I figure it is not the battery; anyway, all manual controls work, rear hatch, power door, windows, etc (anything you would normally do with the remote); but... the remotes just don't work; I looked in the manual and the fuse box cover (inside and under the hood) but it does not give a hint as to which fuse controls the remote function.
If anyone has had this problem before please let me know, I don't want to give the dealer the pleasure of ripping me off again.

The new tranny was installed Monday-Tuesday. I don't think the orignal one was ever right. The new one engages from R to Drive immediatley, the old one didn't right away. The shift from 1-2 is nice and firm with no downshift the way the old one did. The dealer was great to work with. I'm thinking this was just a isolated problem.

I've been following your Tranny saga with interest!
I have an 07 Quest 3.5s with 5 speed.
I'm interested in your Quests "down shifting". I may have a similar issue, however, dealer thinks I'm nuts!
Thanks a lot...

I'm a bit confused. Are you saying the key fob (remote on the key chain) does not work? Or just the alarm button on the key fob does not work?
If the entire key fob does not work, you may need to reprogram them, if you are positive the batteries aren't dead. Here's a link that shows how to reprogram Nissan fobs. make sure you scroll to the bottom of the page.

Hi, after re-reading my post it does confuse things a bit; so to make it simpler, yes, the keyfob does not work at all, both of them. I'll check the batteries tonight and if they're good as expected I'll try the reprogram steps.
#2184 of 2475 third service and 11K mi
Apr 13, 2007 (5:07 pm)
just to keep you up to date, took the 06 Quest SL in today for thrid oil change at 11K miles. At last oil change we had expressed concern over a slight vibration at 2K rpm under load (uphill...), the tech had told us he could not feel anything. Today, I got to ride with the service writer, he felt the viab immediately, but upon inspection they were unable to find anything loose or amis. the tech is saying 2K rpm is the "harmonic range " of this engine...I dont buy it. Service writer is saying he will try to drive another 06 quest when one comes in and see if he feels it on another car. Has anyone had a similar viabration?
Otherwise, only other issue was the rain gutter trim on the pass side has popped up, they are ordering another piece. We just got back from a 1200 mile trip and are sure glad we have the extra space...how would we have lived with the smaller Hundai? Avg mileg was 25.1 on comp, 24.4 real.
Again, has anyone tried one of those clear plastic type bra shield?

Well I checked the batteries in both keyfobs and one was dead, the other was good; I replaced them both just to be sure, but still could not make the keyfobs work, so I followed the link given by dtownfb (Thank you!) and reprogrammed the keyfobs again; they are working now.

Glad it worked for you!
#2187 of 2475 Love my 04 Quest

Bought the 04 in Dec 03 after looking at the Toyo (seriously), Honda (which the dealer quoted 10% OVER sticker), Ford (ok, not really), and Dodge. Got a stripped S with a DVD, paid under $25k. Is it a perfect car? No, but I feel I have great value with it. Yes, I had brake shrudder, but had that with other cars / vans I've had. Doors sometimes squeak, as with every other car I've driven. Clock runs a little fast, but that makes up for my Olds clock, which is equally slow. BOATLOADS of power, fair gas mileage, rides better than any Caddy I've ridden in, LOVE the gauges in the middle (never could see them thru the wheel in any car I've ever driven). I guess I'm saying I didn't expect a Maybach, and I didn't get a '68 VW Microbus. I'm very happy.
I understand some of these posters have legit issues, but some folks must never have driven a 1979 Dodge Omni.

I bought mine 04 Quest a month earlier than you and have 35K miles on it. Today, I took it to Dobbs for brake pads (front) check, they said pads could still last for 3-4 month. Changed 2 tires at 28K miles and 2 tires + rear pads at 31K, our quest has been great and I enjoy driving it everyday. No problem at all so far. The QN engine is really good and powerful. The car is easy to handle and cornering with both independent suspension on both front and rear (only Honday had the same suspension when I purchased it), and more safety features compared with other vans at that time (side curtain, etc).
