Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Pathfinder 3.5L V6

  • Manual transmission

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

the same as this owner experienced, minus picking up the kids: 1. Insert key, 2. foot on brake 3. shifter in park. Note that all appropriate lights on dash are normal. Battery is brand new. 4. Turn key, no crank... just a click. 5. Repeat steps 2-4 6. Place shifter in Neutral and back to Park. Retry step4. Notice click... no crank 7. pump brake and redo step 6. Car will eventually turn over and start immediately. Something must reset to get this to work. Happens periodically like when stopping to refuel or turning off engine That's happened a few times over a the last six months, but today will not start at all... Any past solutions found?
