Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

I am not Jay but I can help.

Do you have a volt ohm meter so we can do some testing?

Jay, I found melted wiring over the rear coil spring mount from exhaust gases from a broken tailpipe.
Nissan Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), Nissan Technician replied 4 months ago

I am not Jay, I am Chris.

Do you believe you have found the issue? Did fixing and addressing that wire fix the problem?

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!
