I received a check engine light on my Quest and the fuel gauge hand was not working properly. I would fill it up and the gas hand would go to full and then as I would drive it would drop down to empty for a while and back to full for while as I would drive. I took it to my local dealership and they stated it was the fuel pump. I had a fuel pump put on by and independent mechanic but the check engine light was still on so I took it back to the dealership and they stated that it was the fuel pump but I told them I replaced that and they then stated it was the sending unit, I told them my local mechanic checked the sending unit and he said that the connectivity was good on the sending unit. The local dealership then ran more diagnostic and said it was dash that caused the problem and not the fuel pump. I had the dash replaced and the fuel gauge is now stuck on full. I have read several other forums with people that have had the same problem as I. I believe this needs to be looked into as a recall as it seems to be affecting a lot of people.

I have been having trouble with the electrical in my van. The air conditioning has been on when I turn the car off and then when I start the car the next time it won't be on. But if I turn it off it starts blowing. Also, the radio will quit whenever it decides to. Driving down the road listening to the radio and it will make a loud pop and then a high pitched sound until I turn the radio off. It won't work again until the car has been turned off a while then restarted. I will loose all the settings on my radio. I am worried that if there it trouble with that stuff what else might stop. I have owned the car since 2008/9(not sure). The air was the problem the first. About the last year and a half the radio has been stopping more and more. I don't want the other electrical things to start acting up. If the lights start going I won't be able to drive the thing. I am wanting to know if other people have had this complaint"??" please help

I was driving from pekin to work in peoria and noticed that I had a little less than 1/4 tank of fuel so I figured I would be able to get gas on the way home. When I checked the trip gage it said that I had 8 miles to go before I ran out of gas. That is a huge difference than what my gas gauge said. I stopped and got gas immediately and while doing so I noticed that it took 17 gallons of gas. If it had actually had a 1/4 tank in it there is no way that I should be able to put 17 gallons of gas in an 18 gallon tank. I have called my Nissan dealership about it and was told there was no recollection of this being an issue. This isn't the first time it has happened but I cannot remember the first time it happened. Since this has been happening I have been keeping track of my mileage and filling up according to my mileage records. I hope this can get fixed soon I am a mother and the last thing I would want to happen is to get stranded on the side of the road with my baby in the car because of an error that wasn't my fault.

While driving the vehicle at approximately 35mph the engine suddenly stopped running and the vehicle drifted to a stop. All attempts T restart the vehicle failed. The gas gauge indicated that the fuel tank had approximately 1/3 of a tank of gas remaining. I spent just a few minute searching the internet for people having similar problems with the same make and model (2007 Nissan Quest). The search uncovered lots of complaints about faulty gas gauges indicating improper fuel levels. So I poured a few gallons of gas into the fuel system and the vehicle started. I have since had the vehicle quit running 2 more times under similar circumstances. Each time more fuel is added and the vehicle starts with no trouble.

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Quest. The contact stated that while driving approximately 35 mph, the vehicle stalled and all the warning lights illuminated. The contact mentioned that the ability to steer seized. The contact mentioned that the vehicle was able to come to a complete stop. However, the vehicle failed to start. The vehicle had to be towed home. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer or independent mechanic. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 135,000.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 139,000 miles
I bought a 2007 Nissan Quest with 138000 miles and a full tank of gas according to the according to the needle. With just 130 driven in 5 days I lose all power steering and brakes on a busy road. After leaving my car at a mechanic shop for the weekend I came across my paperwork which included a campaign notice regarding the fuel gauge and that I should take my car to a dealership for them to replace once the parts become available at my cost to me for repair. After finding out there was absolutely no gas in the van I went to the dealership and they state there is nothing they can do. Even though I have written notice that they will repair at no cost for labor and parts they will not honor their notice. I must now pay out of my own pocket.

problem #18

  • 74,000 miles
While getting onto a freeway (dark/raining/pm), the vehicle shut down without warning. This caused a complete power failure to the power brakes and power steering. This created a immediate hazard. Also, this left my wife and two kids stranded. The vehicle showed about a 1/4 tank of gas on the dash and the digital readout in the center console said 68 miles to empty. I towed the vehicle home. Prior to doing diagnostic work I put a gallon of gas in. The vehicle started right up. I filled up the tank thinking maybe the float/sensor may have stuck. Again the van without warning shut down completely. This time it was in a residential area. The gas gauge showed 1/4 tank and center console computer read 66 miles to empty. I placed 5 gallons in and it started right up. This is dangerous because the fuel light doesn't come on and there is no warning when the car will shut down. Losing power brakes/steering unexpectedly creates a serious hazard in itself. I know keep the tank above 1/2 because below that I'm rolling the dice. Hopefully Nissan will do the right thing and fix the issue since there seems to be quite a few of these.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 125,000 miles


On more than one occasion my wife and young son became stranded by the vehicle running out of gas while the gas gauge read up to 3/8 of a tank and onboard computer told us 60+ miles remaining before empty. I see this has happened to others and my experiences mirror those that are already reported. Hopefully the investigation will proceed quickly and this matter will be resolved soon so I can trust this vehicle again.

Fuel level gauge says a little less than 1/4 tank when fuel tank is empty. This inaccurate fuel level gage has stranded my wife 5 times since we've had the vehicle. Last time it was right after passing a truck on a two lane road, creating an unsafe condition.

Quest 6-cyl

  • miles
This is further to my complaint about incorrect fuel gauge reading and running out of gas three times when both the fuel gauge and digital display have told me that I had between 80 and 130 miles of travel left to travel. Low fuel or reserve light never illuminated. My service light came on and I connected my car md reader to the vehicle data connection and ran the diagnostic on it came back with the following report. I hope this will help, stored codes are conditions that your vehicle reported after your check engine light was set. Carmd uses these codes to accurately identify a most likely repair or "cure". retrieved diagnostic code: P0462 technical definition: Fuel level sensor a circuit low input generic definition: This fault code indicates the comprehensive component monitor (ccm) has detected a malfunction in the fuel level sensor circuit. The signal from the sensor was lower than the minimum expected value for a predetermined period of time for the driving conditions present when the code was set. The fuel level sensor monitors the amount of fuel in the fuel tank. A float arm attached to a variable resistor changes position as the fuel level changes. When the fuel level in the tank is high (the float is żżupż) the resistance is low; as the fuel level drops (the float moves żżdownż), resistance increases. The signal from the fuel level sensor is supplied to the vehicleż's fuel gauge to provide an indication of the amount of fuel in the fuel tank. Additional resources in some instances your vehicle's manufacturer may issue a technical service bulletin (tsb) to address this problem. (?) issued tsb? tsb not available maybe this will resolve the issue now with the safety factor and faulty fuel reading due to component product failure. To me this seems that a this will be $700 repair bill for a 25C part.

Was driving near my home when the vehicle engine simply shut off and stopped working and I had to coast to a stop on the side of the street. Fortunately I was at low speed (about 25mph) and not in a situation where the hazard might have been higher, since the power brakes also shut off with the motor. I didn't understand what happened since my fuel gauge was showing a little over 1/4 tank full and the car would not turn back on. Afterwards I figured that it was probably lack of gas, even though the indicator still showed over 1/4 tank full, so I went to get a some gas and put 5 gallons in the vehicle and it started immediately, on first try.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 79,000 miles
First time, I was driving on busy traffic and looked at the gas gauge and it displayed another 40-50 miles to gas/fuel empty, but my Quest died as it ran out of gas; I had no warning or light came on. Second time, I was on the freeway driving at 60 mph and looked at the gas gauge and it displayed another 50-60 miles to gas/fuel empty; I felt my Quest was going to stop, so I was lucky to get out of freeway and my Quest died right after (out of gas). For both occasion, I had children on the van and extremely concerned that this issue just happen all of the sudden. For safety concerns, I took my Quest to auto mechanic and they confirmed that the fuel/gauge was not working and got it repaired.

While driving my 2007 Nissan Quest (during rush hour) my van suddenly shut down and just glided until I came to a complete stop. Keep in mind my gauge was showing that I had a half a tank" luckily I was able to get off to the side of the road, if not it could have been very dangerous for me and my kids. They really should do something about this, mechanics cant figure it out"

Yesterday my wife was driving my 7 yr old daughter to school. While traveling on a 8 lane interstate at approx 65mph the van started hesitating and slowing down and then she lost all power to the engine and luckily was able to make it to the shoulder of the interstate. We paid to have it towed to our mechanic. This morning we spoke with our mechanic and he told us the van had run out of gas even though our gas gauge showed we had 1/4 of a tank of gas in the vehicle and our "miles to empty" showed approx 60 mile left until empty.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 97,209 miles
This has happened to me on two occasions now. Driving along in peak traffic and suddenly vehicle shuts off. No power steering and almost involved in accidents both occasions the first time I was alone the second time I had my grand babies with me and that was terrifying for them as the other road users where whizzing past and they were stopped. Both times I looked at the digital reading on the display and it displayed the miles as 80 miles to empty and 60 miles to empty and the manual gauge still showed just under 1/4 tank left. The low fuel light never came on either time. This needs to be sorted out before some one gets killed especially as this is used to Transport children....updated 04-10-14
