Re: Nissan Connect LCN1 (J10) and LCN2 (J11) LATEST Map Europe

Having bought a 2015 Qashqai new 5 years ago, I was annoyed to discover the map was already two years out of date, and there was no new update immediately available. I've eventually had 2 updates in the 6 years of owning it, I'm now beginning to look for a new car and see Kia are giving completely ...

Re: LED External Bulbs - Retrofit and the Law

Don't worry about it, no one in their right mind is going to check if your number plate light has any regulated stamps. Just make sure they are not over bright and white. At 12v the worst that's going to happen is that the LED or capacitor if fitted will fail.

Re: Driver's door button does not work

the door button is just that, a button. Take the door card off & short it if its only 2 wires. That way you can tell if its the button or not. Just make sure its only 2 wires going into it.

Re: TPMS accuracy

Hi Lucky, It's not so much about having a little to much or to little air, it's about knowing acuratly what the pressure is. From this point you can then decide how much your happy to run under or over pressure. The great thing about putting in a bit to much air is that it's easy to reduce later on ...

Re: TPMS accuracy

Re: Merc with i key theft caught on video

The thing is, that most of these cars can be broken into, but not driven away. Any car can be broken into, just smash the window. So as long as it cant be driven away, then most cars are fine. This is scaremongering, by the tabloids and even by the BBC :roll: At the end of the day, if a professional...

Re: 1.6 Tekna Overheating

check the front of the Radiator for objects blocking it. Could even be a lot of bugs i guess. How about giving the radiator a careful pressure wash
