Nissan Quest/Mercury Villager problems



  • Ok, I figured out what my problem is. The middle (waist?) hinge has three metal wheels that roll inside the channel and guide the door. Mine is missing part of one of the "wheels" and that is allowing the door an extra 1/4 to 1/2 inch of free play which is causing it to bind up.
    I will go ahead and get a new hinge and that should do it.">

    I went to pick up a Hayne's manual for my '01 Villager the other day. It seems like they have really cheaped out on them lately,though. It was real thin, and the pictures were blurry. Anyway, I read the part on how to replace my fuel pressure regulator. I just ordered the part from $90.00 compared to $210.00 from the dealer. Of course, it's not a genuine Mercury part, but the last one from the dealer only lasted a year. :sick:

  • One of the faceplate bulbs burned out on the EATC climate control unit on my 99. To my dismay, my local dealer informed me that the unit must be replaced. For a burned out bulb? He couldn't even come up with a bulb number. The shop manual clearly states how to replace the bulbs. It looks to be no big deal and no harder than replacing the radio bulbs.

    I'm sure the bulbs are out there somewhere, I just need a generic bulb part number so I can search them out. Any one got one?

    Steve Cutchen's old FAQ site has some part numbers. They may be for the previous generation Quests though.

  • I have a 95 Quest with a check engine light that comes on. A local parts store checks codes for free but we can't find the connection point. Is it under the dash or in the engine compartment?
  • Sometimes the "automatic" shoulder belt on my 1994 Villager will lock in the open position. Jiggling, bouncing, pressing buttons, tugging... nothing gets it to slide back where it should be when the car is moving.

    Then, a few minutes or hours or days later it will start working normally again.

    Please help me trouble-shoot and fix this problem.

    I have 2 problems...
    First, when I press on the brake, the radio lights dim and the thermostat degrees display goes out completely. The dash lights are ok. When I release the brakes, the lights are bright like normal.

    2nd problem:

    My 99 Villager had a brake light out. We replaced the light bulb but it still only works if we hold the bulb in. Once we put the light back together it is out again. There is a recall on light sockets in the 99 Villager but my VIN # wasn't part of the recall. Anyone know where I can get a replacement socket so we can replace it?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Since noone else answered, I can take a stab. It appears your problems may be related. It looks like there is a short in your brake light, when you press the brake, power is sent to the brake light which then shorts to ground, which then lowers the voltage on the circuit so the other lights go out. However, in looking at the electrical circuits, it doesn't appear that the radio lights & thermostat lights are on the same circuit as the brake. I'd replace the broken brake light harness and see if the problem goes away.

    Try this site for ordering parts . I've ordered here and they appear to be much cheaper than the dealer, even including shipping. You may want to check with your local dealer anyway.

    Good Luck,

  • We used to have a 95 Villager. I took it to AutoZone a few years ago when the Check Engine light was coming on intermittantly. Their code reader was for OBD2 vehicles, which started at the 96 model year. So, they could not read any codes from it. There was either no connector, or it was the wrong type, I don't remember.
  • Hello to all;

    Wife and I bought 2000 Villager, 57k miles. Great vehicle. All works well, except rear ac blows warm and fan switch above 2nd seat row doesn't function. Front panel switch wroks, air blows ice cold up front. I have reviwed several posts, nothing seems to match my exact problem. Thanks! :blush:

    Just to clarify, the rear A/C vent is just up top. The bottom vents under the front row seats are just for heat. So if the 2nd row fan isn't working up top, my guess is that the A/C can't get pushed out the upper vent.

    I have a 94 Villager. The paint is peeling off the top. It appears to be worse on the drain channels on either side. The paint is separating from the base coat - it appears that the final paint wasn't well bonded to the primer. Just putting tape on the paint causes it to peel up when you remove the tape. I'm currently trying to reprime & repaint.

    Any advice, experiences to share?


  • I have replaced the thermostat on my van and the top raditor hose is very hot while the hose coming out of the raditor is not so hot,
    the thermostat is on the passenger side of the van and the other hose is opposite side.
    someone told me that it might be that my raditor is stopped up. does anyone know what might be the problem.
  • where is the heater hose located. on a 1995 mercury villager van
