Nissan Quest/Mercury Villager problems

    I have a 1998 Villager and for the last 6 months or so have noticed the brake light coming on all the time. Of course we have checked/changed the brakes and the light is on almost all the time now. Also having problems with the automatic door locks. Sometimes they will lock themselves, and sometimes when I try to lock them they will unlock themselves. Would these problems be related? Help please! My van is driving me crazy! :(

    I've been following this and other Villager forums and i've seen almost no transmission problems. They must use a good one. Reading about the power lock problems, I had a interesting experience. My wife called from work saying, "The van won't start. The battery's dead." I took the battery pack over and got it started. I asked if anything unusual happened on the way to work. She said the doors were locking and unlocking themselves the whole way there, even when she shut the car off! I disconnected the battery, charged it, hooked it back up, and haven't had a problem since.

  • Where are the resistors located?
    I checked everything I could find through the owners manual and instrument layout.

  • I have a Nissan quest GXE 99 ~116000mile and so far no major problem... Today, when I drove on highway, several times rpm changed rapidly. normally, ~2000rpm showed but at that time, move down to ~700 then jump up to normal. Then, just before I parked my car, rpm showed ~1000 pressing brake, suddenly rpm moved 500 ~ 1200then engine stopped with all warning light on. Fortunately, I could get turn engine on without any problem. From that, at most crossing, whenever I stopped my car, engine stopped. But still no problem to engine on. No strange smell, all oil are enough. Please help me.
    Ryan.

    P.S.: sorry for bad expression but it is really hard to describe.
  • Sorry I forgot to mention several things. It happened after engine warmed up such as after driving ~20 min,then it happened. Another thing, after turned on engine, I can hear some squeeze sound something like small metal chip danced in the engine. I hope it help to find.
    Thanks

  • I have a 98 Villager and 00 Quest. Both have burned-out bulbs on the dash display. My mechanic told me he doesn't want to rip me off by taking the dashboards apart to replace the bulbs so I haven't fixed them. Let me know if you find a cheap way to do it, thanks!
  • our 98 villager just started doing strange things with the power door locks - at any given time, some lock/unlock and some don't, but there's no problem with the brake light.
  • Can anyone tell me where I can get this part cheaper than the Stealer?

    Part# F6XZ2B547AB
    Price $248.10
  • david,i had the same,but my dash,radio and all was out,i found that the dimmer switch had a lot to do with it,i just used a paper clip one night and jump the power,it worked for me,i did it at night so i could see when the dash lit up.back yard stuff.u can just pull the whole component out,dimmer,light switch and all,or buy a new one and try that,let me know.
  • Hi Steve or any other villager experts.. can someone please give me some direction on my query below? THANKS

    A/C compresssor stopped working on my 96 villager. Initially i thought I may have low refrigerant level so checked the pressure on the "recharge valve" with engine running and it shows 75psi, which is too high. Does it mean I have a clogged line? Is there anythign obvious i can check before taking it to the mechanic? (mechanic will charge $40 just to look at it and then the "other" charges will start..) Thanks for help in advance

    You must mean a different Steve :shades:, but I looked through my '99's service manual. Looks like any number of things could be the problem, including a bad compressor, low pressure switch stuck open, restricted or plugged suction line, orifice O rings leaking, moisture or excessive lubricant in the system, loose compressor belt, slipping or seized compressor clutch, clutch coil open (shorted or loose), A/C relay (dirty contacts or stuck open) or compressor operation interrupted by ECM (not even sure if your '96 has a full blown ECM).

    I'm going to put new brake pads on my '01 Villager this weekend. Does anyone know what socket( I'm assuming it's an Allen head type) I would need to get the caliper bolts out? Thanks for any help.

    There was a class action on this manufacturing defect. Nissan replaced the Throttle Body assembly free and I got money(some) back on my first TB cleaning. If you still own the van you can get TB replaced by dealer. Check with your dealer or Nissan.

    Toomany-

    The caliper bolts are Torx bits. Sorry, I don't remember the size. When I did my brakes I bought an assorted set that fits a socket wrench. Some folks have had trouble getting these bolts out & have broken the bits, so beware. Other than that these brakes are pretty easy to work on. You might want to pick up some bolts to thread in the holes in the rotors to get those off.

    PS Hosts - can we get Torx in the spellcheck dictionary? I'll have to remember that word next time I play Scrabble...

    probably an illegal word ;)

    It's a T40 from one of your posts back in February '04. ;)

    My factory manual irritates me on fasteners; it gives torque requirements for every one, but it never tells you the bolt or nut size required.

    Thanks for the replies. It is a T40, I have a set I bought for another project, I crawled under the van and checked, and it fit.

    I had the front and rear go out on my '95. The rear was a bad relay on the heater control board and the front was a bad resistor.. Just went to the boneyard and pick one up because new they are close to 400 bucks I think.
