Re: Air bag replacement

Thanks Cedric, a good idea. Will give it a couple of days and repost. That doesn't make sense. He should be able to find the ECU or pick it up regardless of a chip on the car. The chip would be a piggy back chip feeding bogus signals to the ECU so it doesn't error while managing the engine, but fro...

Re: Airbag light reset prosedure

Michael, The error code says its the clock spring and it affects the airbag on the steering wheel. From what I have read is that it actually is the ribbon cable on the clock spring that goes faulty. The ribbon cable only can be bought on eBay for about US$5.00. But to be honest it is such a shit jo...

Re: Alternator and battery box

I'm very happy with my WRND. I don't think it has any relays so no clicking noises. I've not seen any issues with it staying on while the Patrol is running. I also have it on my battery box in the back.

Codes have been reset and it seems it may indeed be related to the key.

Re: 4.8 GRX auto concerns

I had the same thought Peter. The oil cooler on the Patrol is embarrassingly small. I phoned around for a radiator place in and around Centurion that will fit a larger oil cooler but no one seems to do oil coolers, just radiators. As soon as I can find a place a big puppy will be installed. I am wor...

4.8 GRX auto concerns

Last weekend I towed a two ton trailer loaded to the brim with garden refuse and noticed after some time of heavy towing in traffic there was some flaring between gears one and two between about 2200 rpm and 2600 rpm. It also seems to only happen at around the same throttle position. At other revs i...

Patrol P1612 and P0000 OBD codes

I experience an occasional hiccup with my Patrol when starting it, usually first thing in the morning. It is a 2004 4.8. Some times when I start the car, the cluster doesn't work for a few minutes after starting the car. No speedo, rev counter, temperature or fuel level indication. Only the warning ...

Re: Is your Nissan affected by dangerous airbag safety recall?

They also did the passenger airbag on mine. I was not aware that there were injuries from the driver side airbag as well.
