#540 of 687 2006 Nissan Armada Troubles
Sep 24, 2007 (12:43 am)
I'm having trouble with my 2006 Nissan Armada. It has under 16,500 miles on it and it keeps dying on me, while I'm driving it. I have gotten it towed five times, taken it to two different delearships, and called Nissan North America, all to no avail. Everyone says that they can't duplicate the problem and that everything checks out fine. However, after driving it a couple days, it just stops again. I've paid for the towing and car rentals, and I'm running out of $$ and patience. But no one seems to help. Any ideas or suggestions would be great.

When an engine goes kaput there are usually codes that are triggered during the incident. So are you saying that no codes are triggered? That the dealer can't find the codes? Or that they are ignoring the codes and telling you they can't find anything wrong?

They are telling me that there are no codes coming up. That everything registers fine.

Do you have a CEL after the incident? Generally you SHOULD have one after an incident like that. Try a different dealer.

Sometimes, not always. All the service lights generally turn on. I've already taken it to two different dealers.

So they are saying that there is no info from the Check Engine Light? The CEL should be giving them all the info they need to at least start to diagnose the problem.

Yep, They said they do not get any codes at all and to keep bringing it in every time it stalls. They also said that it would probably have to get worse before they find something.

My recommendation is just a shot in the dark, but you have nothing to lose. The next time it happens wiggle your key in your ignition switch to see if the vehicle will restart. Sometimes the ignition switch goes bad, especially if you have a ton of junk hanging on your keychain. Also, the keys are chipped. Try a different key. Hopefully the trouble isn't in your steering column with whatever it is that reads the chip in the key as that is hard to diagnose.
Honestly though, it could be a ton of things and I would not want to be in your position as the stalling could get you killed.

Depending on how far and how long you are driving between shut offs, it could be a problem with your anti theft unit and key.
My 2004 did the same thing in the first week. The dealer never programed the fob to the vehicle. So it could be a problem with the key or the antitheft box.
Good luck. I hope your dealers are better than mine.

I hate hear that you are having such problems. I have spent several years under the hood of vehicles and this problem sounds simple. When does it shut off? Is it at a red light or stop sign or when you are going real slow? If so have them test you alternator, it could be it is bad or going bad and it is not keeping your battery charged so the vehicle shuts down. They should have already checked this but if I know dealership service departments they have not. If they give you and grief just find a local garage any ask them to check the alternator. I wish you were close by I would love to help.
