My 2008 Versa only has 2,300 miles. They seem like they know something and wont share. I have had people slam on their brakes so that they would not hit me even when the gas petal is all the way to the floor trying to make the vehicle move. Well this past winter, yet again hard start issues. Fuel pump was obtained and installed at my expense. Also, last week I was driving the vehicle and it suddenly would not go when I pushed on the gas.
The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the fuel pump and catalytic converter was replaced. I had to pay for a very expensive repair on a relatively brand new vehicle! Battery was fine but engine would crank but not come on. Mechanic felt that fuel pump should not have had to be replaced on a 5 year old car. Looked on the net for advise on how to fix it, to my surprise there are 7 pages of people with the exact same complaint. Ordered parts, but packing is on backorder.
The relays in the fuse panel are as follows: the one to the extreme left which is located half way up the box is the ignition relay. I hope this helped a little at least and good luck. Nissan has refused to offer any assistance to customers on this issue. Obviously, it is unacceptable for me to be without my brand new car for a week and a half. Taking to the dealer next week. Nissan needs to fix this!!!. If you leave the ignition turned on for 15 to 30 seconds then the car will start.
I took my vehicle to the dealer and on the way there it started working fine, I left it at the dealer anyways and they kept it for three days and called me up and said that they could not replicate the problem and therefore there is nothing they can do. The contact believed that the fuel pump needed to be replaced. I have taken it into the shop again and now they are claiming that it is a mass air flow sensor. Your security system is malfunctioning. Car cranked but would not start. Because of this I was almost hit several times trying to pull out into traffic.
These repairs have not fixed the problem. I plan to have the vehicle serviced for this problem shortly, but wanted to register this problem as it has already happened to at least one other complainant. Car has not been doing it for a while so I am replacing the relay any way as a precaution. The contact stated that while driving 5 mph or above, the vehicle would suddenly stall without any warning. I bought the platinum warranty on the car and the dealer refuses to even acknowledge the fact that it might not start. Recently it has developed a problem that causes it to have a substantial delay in starting. The car was towed to the dealership, and left overnight.
The first time I took it in was because it would not start. The service advisor said it might have been the pressure sensor, but the entire fuel pump assy was replaced. Since I normally have to drive a distance, this is going to leave me stranded one day and I am not sure if I like having to pay to have it replaced when I see that there are other people with the same issue with the same car. Checked all fuse and they are working fine. The vehicle was unable to restart.
I took it to the Nissan dealer first and they said I would need to replace fuel pump and they declined to mention why or how it could happened. My 2008 Nissan Versa hatchback has about 20000 km on it an has had the fuel pump replaced once already under warranty by the dealer about one year ago. This is well documented, and a known safety hazard for both potential accidents and air poisoning dot needs to investigate and hold Nissan accountable for recall and repair of this flange. The vehicle was taken to a personal mechanic for diagnosis and was told that the fuel pump would need to be replaced. As has been documented in 29 previous complaints on this site, Nissan Versa has known failure of exhaust system flange within 36-48 months, resulting in muffler failure and dangerous levels of toxic fumes entering cabin and outside air. I did a search but came up empty.
The scariest part is the slowing down while my foot is on the gas. The last week I have had nothing but problems. After I got the car back it started to have no power when I pushed on the gas petal. I bought what I thought was a reliable car, but after this and having the fuel door becomming disconnected frequently, I am not feeling confident. The failure recurred on the day the vehicle was repaired. This should disconnect the top. Three top mechnics are confused why my 2008 already needs a fuel pump.
