#2327 of 2475 Re: Did I pay for NOTHING? - 2004 Nissan Quest Extended Warranty [elpddc]
Feb 03, 2009 (9:12 am)
The factory warranty on all 2004 Quests was extended in September 2004. You should have received a special letter from Nissan and a sticker to be placed in the owner's manual. This was part of their special initiative to resolve some of the major known issues with the Quest at the time.
I would call Nissan customer service and talk to them. they should have a record of the mailing. Getting your money from them is another story since the warranty has expired.

"No way to tether a rear-facing car seat"
Why would you tether a rear-facing car seat? you use the lower anchors in the seat cushions. Tethering is for forward facing car seats.
"No power outlets are on unless car is on"
From the 2009 owner's manual: The power outlets located in the 1st row (driver’s
side) and the cargo area are powered directly by
the vehicle’s battery.
#2329 of 2475 Problems to open the moonroof and DVD player
Feb 16, 2009 (12:48 pm)
We have a Quest 05 SE with a dual-screen DVD player (Myron&Davis). About a month ago, the OEM battery died and I replaced with a new one but I just noticed two problems and wondered if they were at all related with the change of battery, which perhaps changed the settings (?).
First, the DVD player doesn't seem to recognize any of my kids DVDs. After showing "loading" for a while, it says "unknown disc" and doesn't play.
Second, I cannot open the moonroof. Strangely, the function "tilt" still works, and to open it no longer works.
If anyone experienced these problems, please let me know if there is something I can do to fix. Thanks.

Since it seems to have started with the battery change, try disconnecting the negative cable for a 10 minutes. See what effect this has.

Low Brake Fluid will cause the VDC light to come on.
#2332 of 2475 "Service Engine Soon" light
Mar 08, 2009 (8:52 am)
It's been a few years since I last hang around here. We've been pretty happy with our 05 S model which now has 38K miles. A couple weeks ago the "Service Engine Soon" light came on (steady and not blinking). Accroding to the manual it's the fuel filter cap eigher loose or missing. I didn't do anything and the light went away briefly for a day or so. But now it's back on. Does anyone know where the fuel filter cap is and how easy it is to tighen it myself? I'd appreciate it if someone who experienced this can share.
I should also mention that I overfilled the engine oil by ~1/5 qt last time I changed it. By the time the light came on, the van had run for 8K miles and 10 months. I use Mobile 1 synthetic oil.

I also wonder if the manual actually meant the gas tank cap rather than fuel filter cap, because a loose gas tank cap is known to cause the check engine light to come on. But tightenning the gas tank cap doesn't seem to help.

Souds Like a trip to the garage. If it is not under warranty take it to a corner garage. They are about half the hourly rate of dealerships. I had the same message at 60K on my 04 Quest. It was an O2 sensor. I bought a Bosch direct replacement on-line (Parts Geeks) for half the cost of one at a dealer. Installing it was a pain (my bad one was the front bank (exhaust manifold), and you need a special socket, and it helps tp be a contorsionist.
PS...Still looking for a do it youself cure for the cranky power side door. Anyone...anyone...Bueller...anyone?

Even cheaper would be to take it to an auto parts store and ask them to pull the code and tell you what it says.
Well, even cheaper until you find it that it may be more than a loose gas cap. Then you find a local garage. Check out Dealer Ratings and Reviews if you need a mechanic.
(sorry, Calvin, no idea on your door issue).

Thank you so much for the information Calvin. I found the O2 on Parts Geeks. Could you please let me know how much it cost you at the shop to put in the part you brought in? Of couse I'll need to confirm that's the problem first. I wonder how much the diagnosis will be. You can tell I'm cheap
