Re: Air bag replacement

Its been great to get a solid consensus on my experience, so thank you all. The chap who operated the Consult was very young, but then at my age everybody looks young he he, so perhaps it was a finger problem or just inexperience. Next time I get that stock question, has it been chipped, I will know...

Re: Air bag replacement

Thanks Peter. Brian from Mad Man is going to send down a Boost gauge for the unit, when they arrive, and I will get the chap in Durban who does the installation to check it afterwards with his tester and report back on this post with the findings.

Re: Air bag replacement

Hi Paul, what you say makes sense otherwise Chipping would prevent future diagnostics of every chipped Patrol. Its the first time I had ever been asked that question and so ran straight to the forum for answers. I still wonder though if the wiring in of the Mad Man would affect the connection to the...

Re: Air bag replacement

Thanks Cedric. Yes I have never seen one either but was hoping someone on the forum who has a chip and has had their air bag replaced would have replied if they had experienced something similar. Thats assuming though that it was tested with the Nissan Consult thingy.

Air bag replacement

Hi all. I took my Patrol to Nissan in Port Shepstone today for that airbag recall. It took about 3 hour to do and afterwards the mechanic called me and showed me his Nissan diagnostic device could not find the EU. He asked me if it had been chipped as that would cause the problem but I dont know if ...

Over boost sensor

Hi Guys. I have a question about the over boost sensor. After returning to SA after a year away, I popped in to see Brian at Mad Man to inquire if he now had the turbo boost module that fits onto the gauge. He will let me know when they are back in stock. If one has the boost and manifold informatio...

Re: Narrow or wide

After encountering a lot of bridges on my travels, that were just logs tied together, I was pleased I had wide tires at the time as I felt that thin ones were more likely to slip into the sometimes wide cracks between the logs. So yes, arguments for both, but in my opinion a truck with marie biscuit...
