#2400 of 2475 2005 Quest 3.5S - Aftermarket CD/MP3 Player
Aug 07, 2009 (4:05 pm)
I have the 2005 Nissan Quest 3.5 S with the factory installed CD Player. I am looking to replace it with an aftermarket CD Player that can play Mp3. Any recommendations? Also, how difficult is it to replace it? Would we need any special harness once I remove the existing factory CD player?
I tried crutchfield but wasn't able to find much information. It looks like many aftermarket systems can be installed - but it also warns me that we need to fabricate a harness for correct fit.
Any responses/advice is greatly appreciated.

The best thing to do is visit a local Best Buy or other audio shop and talk to them about what parts are needed.
#2402 of 2475 Power door not closing
Aug 09, 2009 (6:03 pm)
I've asked this before, but no one responded. Has anyone ever done their own adjustment on their 2004-present Quest power door. When ours was in warranty, the dealer adjusted it at no charge "as a courtesy", but it never lasted more than a couple months. The door gets about 90% closed & reverses. Nothing is obvioulsy gumming up the track, etc. If someone pushes it will close, but it is annoying at best . Any ideas?
#2403 of 2475 Moonroof not closing
Aug 15, 2009 (2:03 pm)
Today I opened the moonroof on my Quest 05 SE to let the hot air get out while turning on the A/C. After a few minutes of driving I tried to close it but it didn't. I could hear a little noise "click, click" but the moonroof wouldn't slide back to close. I'm hoping to find some advice here. Anyone having experienced this problem before? Any input is greatly appreciated.
#2404 of 2475 Front Control Arm replacement
Aug 23, 2009 (5:12 pm)
I finally replaced the front control arms on my 2004 Quest. I was having a deadening, stiff, harsh bump whenever I went over bumps with the minivan. My first thought is the front struts needed replacing but it turned out the bushings in the front control arm went bad. What's interesting is the bushings for the FRONT control arms are not serviceable and new control arms at the dealership are over $400. Luckily my mechanic was as shocked at the price as i was and let me find the control arms and he installed them. I found front control arms at www.Partsgeek.com for about $215 for each arm (half of what the dealer wanted to charge). It took my mechanic 3 hours to install them.
My van takes bumps and road imperfections smoother and without any noise. the sterering wheel shakes are about 95% gone.
Hopefully this helps someone.

I belong to two other Nissan Quest forums and have not found anything about adjusting the door yourself.
Best thing you can do is make sure the contacts are cleaned, nothing is on the track and there is plenty of grease.

Hi I recenlty purchased a nissan quest 2005 with 95 K miles on it.Yesterday I got service engine soon.
.I thought it needs engine oil change.SO did oil change.But after that I still see Service Engine soon.So I took it to Autozone and they told I have I P0420 error .After reading this forum I understood it needs a new catalytic converter.Emission warranty is like 8 years/80K miles.Will I be still covered undered warranty?

I would contact Nissan...but I would bet the answer is no.
I had a replacement Audi part go out in about 15 months; and about 1000miles over , and they refused to cover it...I think the replacement part only had 1 year 10-12k miles or so..
Anyway, I'd look for an after market part...or a junk yard piece...or re-manufacturered.

Nissan catalytic converters are very sensitive.So aftermarket parts tend to be very problematic.Original Nissan parts are the best.Your best bet--Go to the dealer .They can tell you what the code means.A code can mean many different things.And if the cat converter does need replacing,then contact Nissan and maybe atleast ask them to split the cost.I would never buy an aftermarket cat converter from a place like autowarehouse, especially for Japanese cars. Nissans are very well known for having bad cat converters unlike honda/Toyota.
Also,any reason why you bought such a high miled Quest ? And what did you pay for it? Good Luck.Keep us posted for any follow up.
