Re: New advanced navigation system - What3words

Thanks for the links,I'd heard of what3words and the concept but never really investigated it, very interesting idea and has been taken on by Mercedes. Best bet for Nissan is to spend their time on Android Auto/Apple Car Play integration rather than stuff like Connect ( mind you it looks like they h...

Re: Draining battery

Another one for the list, Feb 15 car at 30k miles so lasted slightly better than some. Thanks to the forum-and everyone who has posted on the subject- I was aware of the issue and potential warning signs. In my case stop/start error message and system lock out over a number of days,had sourced a nea...

Re: Air con recharge cost

In common with others I had a condensor replacement last July,and have covered about 9000 miles since. The aircon has started hissing again during operation over the last couple of weeks suggesting a gas level issue. It is booked in-at the moment,plans may have to change-for investigation at the end...

Re: Unknown "Sensor" on the front exterior [photos]

As commented, it's an additional sensor used by the auto parking system so only fitted on cars with the system. I'd guess it's main use is for " scanning " just in front and alongside the car to find suitable sized spaces for parallel parking.

Re: Engine warning light/limp mode code P1453

Cleaner worth a try, wonder if it's a co-incidence though that issue has arisen shortly after an MOT where the engine will have been revved hard as part of test, maybe either dislodged some debris that is sticking in the EGR valve or possibly the EGR was on its way out and the extra stressing has ti...

Re: Drivers seat not level

I've had a bad back for months and I've just realised my seat is not level, i.e. One cheek is lower than the other! :shock: Anyone else have this problem? You have my sympathy, back issues are never fun,only those who have never suffered are dismissive. Unless there's an actual fault with your seat...

Re: Installing A Dashcam

I'm not sure of the timing, but even if you don't lock the car it turns the power off again after a minute or so, then if you open the door the satnav powers on again, the off after a minute or so after closing the door, and over and over gain, well that's what mine does ;) That is correct, power p...

Re: Installing A Dashcam

My dash cam is plugged into the cigarette lighter (2016 N-connecta, UK). I notice when I open the doors the dash camera comes on....does the cigarette power supply switch off when the doors are locked? (don't want to drain my battery). I'm not sure of the timing, but even if you don't lock the car ...

Re: Service today on 3 yr.old QQ.

I see others have already touched on possible issues,including internal corrosion which if it caused problems with the ABS unit would be less than cheap....not suggesting going a year or two past recommended interval will automatically mean some sort of catastrophe but from changing bike brake fluid...

Re: Recall notice today

Got the recall letter about 10 days to a fortnight ago,can't quite remember when,they will likely be done in batches particularly if it's a high volume recall I'd guess. The recall for the "1.6" almost certainly relates to the petrol version, which is probably why those with the diesel have never se...
