Where exactly is the cruise censor on gear box for 07 navara d40

August 2016

Most common problem is the NPS switch - neutral position switch on the top of the gearbox which is a plunger type and can start sticking. Sometimes they can be removed, cleaned and oiled then refitted and all will be well. If not £50 for a new switch and £££ more to some guy in overalls to slide under your truck for 10 mins if you don't feel the need. Good luck.

Thanks Guys
Mine was the clutch switch
Works like a bought one now

January 2013

I had same problem, was told I need a Nissan computer diagnosis,but read that there are 3 main problems unassociated with software..3 switches disengage cruise control, brake,clutch and gearbox. My problem is the clutch pedal switch.I can reset it by putting my left foot under the clutch pedal and lift it to the max upward travel,which re-sets the switch.I could always get the green dash lamp to show cruise,but the toggle switch on the steering wheel which resets cruise made no difference until I lifted the clutch pedal up. It works fine now.

All of the comments sound familiar,Navara D40 intermittent fault,used to work but sometimes would not activate,now all I get is green Cruise lamp but not actually in cruise mode. Specialist Auto Electrician Co say needs Nissan Software to diagnose.I'll have them check the switrches on brake pedal,clutch and neutral,thanks for all the hints and tips.

my cruise control will only set when i hold gear stick to the left, but goes off when i release gear stick, does anyone know how to adjust or change switch on gear box

February 2012

The issue with most d40 navara cruise control is the connection between the steering wheel and the steering mount. i believe they call it clock spiral plate, or something like that. if the vehicle is under warranty, nissan will fix gratis. if out of warranty, you're looking at au$300+. a bit unfair if you ask me as this is a part that cannot be mistreated, so obviously a manufacturing/design fault.

i have the similar fault it switches on and off on the button but nothing happens with the car ie cruise kicking in?

May 2011

it could be the neutral switch check it drive along in top gear hold gear stick to left or right whilst engaging the cc see if that works

December 2010

I have a D40 and the cruise control is also working intermittantly. I can engage the CC and it will sometimes turn itself off, I have checked the switches on the clutch & brake pedals and adjusted them and CC still cuts out. I had Nissan check on last service, they told me there is nothing wrong with the CC
