Customer Question
04 quest-intermittant failure to...

04 quest-intermittant failure to turnover. Hit dash an around key an jiggle shift arm, usually starts after that. Not convinced its the starter. Rather, the receiver/actuator that works with the key transponder may require replacing. New keys made 36 months ago.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

Transmission is in great shape. Fluid swap 24 months ago. Fluid is clear now.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '04 Nissan?

SL

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your SL yourself? What have you tried so far?

I do what i can, but I will not be installing something like a starter. I can check fuses and replace a starter relay, but don't have the skills to replace ECM or starter

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

A nissan parts staff suggested the transmitter or receiver that works with the key may be the issue.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
