2001 Nissan Frontier Owner Comments

Frontier 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

While driving at 55-60 mph the dashboard will go dead and odm go blank. The engine will drop to 30-35 mph, if a hot day here in tx. The car will totally die. Took to Nissan repair-will have to replace complete wiring harness & all sensors $1,500. Or more...warranty does not cover. Took to another mechanic- determined it is the wiring cluster from the dash that feeds the computer. Because the computer is not receiving mph, the governor takes over and shuts the car down. Nissan has not released these parts for sale to the public. Mechanic still trying to get response from Nissan. Nissan will not recall. This happens almost everyday we drive this car. Can't afford another car, will have to find away to fix, but Nissan is not corporation.
