problem #2

Jun 012004

Quest 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,000 miles


There have been several occurrences when I went to start my vehicle and the radio would not come on and the clock on the radio would not display the time. At first I thought that it was a blown fuse. I replaced the fuse but this event kept occurring over and over again. One day it was raining and the radio would not come on nor would the time be displayed on the screen and then I found out my wipers would not work either. So whenever this occurred again, I would check the wipers and find out that when the radio was not working, neither would the wipers. I would have to stop the vehicle, start and stop the engine repeatedly until the radio would come on. Once that happened, my wipers would begin working too. This is still an ongoing problem. My wife had the vehicle at the dealership for maintenance and when she left, the radio was not working so she pulled back into the dealership and stopped the vehicle, talked to the service agent. He went out and started the vehicle and the radio was working. There is definitely an electrical short somewhere in this vehicle.

Quest 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,884 miles
I owned a 2002 Nissan Quest with approx. 40,000 miles. On January 13, 2005, I returned to my home at 2:00am. At approximately 2:15am I heard 2 loud pops come from outside my home. When I looked outside my van was completely engulfed in flames and was completely destroyed from the fire damage. Previous service history included: Check of drivers side power window for out of track problems and problems with electrical (console lights and tail lights) acting improperly which the dealership said they could not re-duplicate. Worked with autumn at Nissan North America, very rude and unhelpful. Nissan stated that I hit a large object and damaged the fuel tank however, the vehicle had never been invloved in any other incidents or accidents.
