Have been reading comments on 'How To Mend It.'
Also my 52' sve flat screen display would intermittently fail to light up; though now it's permenantly blank, except when the lights are switched on, and then it glows, (can operate rear screen though!). Also the dvd fails to eject disc.....
Nissan agent over the phone thought it was the cpu and said a new one was 5000pounds, gulp; though they might be able to use a recon' at 2/3000pounds. shysters!
My local garage took the skuttle apart, checked for dry joints, hooked up their computer and was adament it was the Ecu, these can be sent to a company in Portsmouth, (could also use the BBA network!) who within three hours will check and replace the electronics for a set fee of 120pounds, using the existing unit reduces risk of inbuild coding conflicting with othe car electronics. Whose is ripping off who I ask?
However, taking the Primera to Nissan, they diagnosed the dvd as faulty, to affirm this they linked one up from one of their own, which proved the Ecu was AOk. Cost of a reconditioned replacement 700pounds!! Takes less than a hour to fit.
So, how much can you buy a new good dvd player for?
I'm currently mulling this over, trying to find where one can get a replacement dvd player, would you know?
For info, my local garage would charge 75pounds to fit either a Ecu or dvd unit.
Where have you got to with you car? and does the above seem similar? Whats the latest with getting Nissan to admit a manufacturing fault?
All the best, Ray
