#3 of 28 Van will not go to learn mode to reprogram remote
Dec 16, 2006 (9:15 am)
I have a 1999 Nissan Quest GLE. Both the original remotes broke. I can not get the van to go into learn mode to reprogram the new remote. I followed the process of locking the door, putting the key in more the 6 times in 10 seconds, but the lights will not flash.
Also, we can not unlock the drivers door with the key, because the alarm will go off. We can unlock the passenger door with the hey with no problem.
A mechanic I talked with thinks it might be the chip in the key or a loose connection in the driver's door.

I suppose the new remote battery could be dead if the remote you bought sat in the warehouse a long time. Unlikely though.
When you get in the van and lock the doors, try the key insertion into the ignition a bit slower, but still more than six times in ten seconds. Remove the key completely each time.
The alarm going off when you use the driver's door lock sounds like a ground issue or a bad door key cylinder switch, per the troubleshooting chart in my service manual. Try resetting the alarm system - put the key into the driver's door. Turn it twice to the left, then twice to the right.

#5 of 28 1997 Mercury Villager Door Lock Problem
Jan 20, 2007 (1:55 pm)
Over last few years my door locks have stopped working with the remote control and more recently several locks have stopped working when using the drivers door controls to lock the vehicle. I'm thinking there might be a relay or fuse issue but I don't have a wiring diagram. Any recommendations? Thanks.
#6 of 28 '05 Quest power sliding passenger door
Mar 06, 2007 (3:08 pm)
Recently, the passenger power sliding door on my wife's 2005 3.5L has been acting up.
Initially, it wouldn't close when used; It would close nearly all the way, click a few times like it was trying to latch and the beep & re-open.
Now, its doing the same when it opens. It reaches a certain point and then beeps and tries to close.
Fortunately it works when disabling the power option and closing manually.
I've checked the tunnel for obstructions as well as lubed the trench.
Its under warranty, but I'd rather fix it myself it is something simple.

Since it is under warranty, take it to the dealer. power sliding doors are tricky.
#8 of 28 Have you ever tried "WD-40" for door rattle?

Sorry to hear some of the problems with early Nissan Quest.
I got a 2004 Quest S model. The car runs great and never has any problem since November 2003. For me, Quest is powerful and easy to handle. The powertrain is wonderful, except I wish it got 5-speed on transmission instead of 4.
I had some rattle door problems even after the they applied the re-call. But someone mentioned WD-40 on this forum and I used couple of bottles to spray almost every where near the door, and under seat, etc. And it did a great job. I bought those bottles at Autozone, and it costs less than 2 bucks.
#9 of 28 doors freezing up
Mar 08, 2007 (10:35 pm)
Another thread here. This is our first winter with the 2006 Quest...it is surpizingly good in the snow, though as a new car I have been trying to keep it home when the white stuff flies. Anyway one problem we seem to have is the doors seem to ice up and freeze closed. Never had this bad an issue on other cars as the quest. you can usually pull them open with a little force but I am afraid of ripping the weatherstripping. Any thoughts or ideas from others in the frozen tundra?

I've had this problem mostly with the driver side sliding door (see my post above). The passenger side has gotten slightly frown but a few good tugs have freed it. The driver's side needs about 10 minutes with the heat on and pushing from inside. But my gasket needs to be replaced.
#11 of 28 I bent the door, now the car won't start!
Jul 03, 2007 (6:50 am)
I was backing up and the driver side door was left open. Next thing i knew, it caught on a fencepost and was bent backwards like it wasn't supposed to be. So now the door is bent on its hinges and it will not shut. My question is about the engine. For some reason when I bent the door the engine shut off, and now it will not start. The starter is working, so there is no battery problem, but the engine will not run. Could this have something to do with an "auto shut off mechanism" built into the car? If someone would offer advice on how i could get this thing started it wouldbe greatly appreciated.
#12 of 28 2007 Quest Automatic Door
Aug 09, 2007 (8:27 pm)
Has anyone had a problem with their automatic doors rubbing causing the safety system to reverse the door. I have had this incident occur two seperate times....It appears on of the door brackets is rubbing on something as it closes. I put a little upward pressure on the the door step wherein the problem corrected. Please advise.
