Customer Question
The power steering on...

The power steering on my 2015 Frontier was out when I started it this morning

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

Just bought it from CarMax and they replaced all the fluids. Haven't heard any noises

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

Haven't tried anything yet

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

The brake light is also on, with the hand brake not engaged

What Customers are Saying:

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!
