2012 QashQai seemingly possessed

Post by laurenlhen » Thu Jan 10, 2019 11:47 am

Hello :)

I have a 2012 QashQai - Ntec+ if that is relevant.

To be honest, since I got it 3 years ago (it only had 20K miles on it) it has been an absolute money pit.

It's latest issue is that the electrics are playing up. The issues include:
  • If I lock the car with the keyfob the hazards flash for hours and the alarm goes off (even when the car is turned on).
  • The sat nav/radio console used to just turn off and reset whenever it felt like it, it has now completely packed in and there is no sign of life. Completely black screen
  • The car wouldn't turn on at all the other day. It needed a jump start and the battery is only 6m old. I've since had the battery checked and its all in working order
  • This one really is the least of my worries but the back window goes up at a snails pace

Has anyone else experienced similar issues and had a fix? It needs a new timing belt and the MOT is coming up as well and I'm just wondering how much money will be going into the QashQai pit.

Think I’d get rid myself, my J11b is running very well touch wood, no issues, but when the warranty runs out in 2020 I’ll be getting rid.
My last diesel I think.
