Re: Computer like noises from under the dash.

I could only think of noises as likely AirCon stuff. Certainly a noisy Evaporator or perhaps fan control?

Re: Annoying Software update problem

I have a suspicion that the dealer(s) can't correct these headunits...similar to what went before it (Connecta 2 & 3). Rather like a mobile phone, if a factory reset or firmware update don't fix it...it dies right there.

Be interesting to know the outcome...new headunit?

Re: Air Con Yearly Regas Needed

Thoughts on the problem: What appears to be heard (gurgling) from the rear of the Aircon/Heater unit is from the Evaporator unit. Its likely receiving to much liquid refrigerant from the related Expansion Control Valve (ECV). The ECV regulates the refrigerant flow into the Evaporator. Too much as th...

That'll likely need the gas pressure guages to diagnose problem

It's currently on Software version 0804 and the map software is on version 15041_0_2. Not sure how out of date these versions are or if they are up to date?

Happy to factory reset but want to try and avoid that if I can.

Try with the engine running...as said above

Re: Unsure on performance

Whether that's a gearing auto selection or engine problem is very difficult to say.

Re: Annoying Software update problem

Generally that kind of thing needs a reboot (Factory Reset). Doing so looses personal settings but could clear a system hangup?

After that you may need to know if an update truly exists and what version it is. Also, what is your current version?

After that Call/Email Nissan Customer Service

Re: BOOST ISSUE

This is about enabling the ECU to control the Turbo charge which relates to a number of critical inputs. The ECU matches those inputs to its internal performance map. TBH I'm not familiar with the system and you appear to have changed many components of the system which might not be helpful. You may...

Re: Front doors sometimes wont unlock Qashqai 2017

The system for lock/unlock is controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM) and communication to the Key Fob...plus door sensors. Both doors failing unlock is unlikely actuator problems. Its a car security issue, so its difficult to diagnose and would need a dealers help to test and diagnose all part...

Re: Smart key not so smart

Fob battery was changed for a Panasonic one in the summer and then again recently by a local garage with their stock. I hoped the use good quality ? (Cost me £8!!!) The car battery replacement was done at the dealership. They knew about the start/stop issue and just assumed they knew what kind to r...
