#550 of 687 Nissan Rear Air Conditioning Inoperable
Oct 19, 2007 (5:39 pm)
I recently bought a 2005 Nissan Armada SE, 45,000 miles. The front AC and the first row floor AC work perfectly. The rear air conditioner has no air flow. I checked and re checked the AC button functionality. I replaced all the fuses pertaining the to HVAC and blower circuits. Nothing has worked. Before going to nissan and paying out my nose...does anyone have any idea how to fix this? Please respond! Can you email me also at gabriel.genglergmail.com?

Why do you have to go to Nissan and pay through your nose? You could go to a local mechanic and do the same....
Have you checked the circuit with a tester to see if power is getting to the unit? Sounds like a blown motor but to guess at something like this without testing a few things is like shooting a shotgun in the dark.

There are several ways to operate the AC in the 2nd Row. My guess is that it's the buttons that are the issue.

The several ways that you mentioned. Are they explained in the owners manual or do you need the factory repair manual? Just curious...

They should be in the regular manual. For instance if you have it on "R" for the fan then you have to control it from the rear controls. If the rear is "on" but the front control for the rear is "off" then it won't work. Also if you have heat on it only comes out the floor vents. If you have AC on it only comes out the top vents. You can't have hot air come from the top and can't have cold air from the bottom.

That's exactly how my Denali's rear controls work. If the main control in the front is "OFF" the rear controls will not work. This of course is all explained in the owner's manual.

I'm not sure how the Denali's worked but I know that you can turn the rear off in the from the front controls or put it on "rear control" or control the setting for the rear from the front. It can be confusing. In 08 they allow the rear to actually direct hot air out of the top and cold air out the bottom if you wish, similar to the traditional controls found on the front.

the front's control of the rear is set to "off"?
#558 of 687 Nissan Armada emergency brakes
Oct 20, 2007 (6:13 pm)
My 2004 Nissan Armada has had the recall problems on the brakes repaired. I have since been experiencing problems with the emergency brake suddenly being engaged without me touching the brake. It may happen when you start the car or while driving down the road. I must stop the car and pull over, turn the car off, and when I restart the car it will usually be gone. It happens about once a month. The dealer said they could not find anything wrong and had not heard of this problem. Has anyone else had this problem or a possible solution?

Emergency Brake? How could it be "activated" there is no such thing, the E-brake is the pedal on the far left, and can only be manually set. There is no physical way for the brake to be set or unset without hitting the pedal on the far left under the dash!
