Re:


Good news Eddie, but unfortunately when your warranty runs out you'll have to get used to the gauge.
I thought that parts and labour had a 12 month replacement warranty on them, only to find out that it ceases when the 3 year warranty expires.
The dealer warranty isn't much chop as they said they will acess through their insurance company if its a safety issue or not.

Re: Re:



Put my 2009 in for a 60,000 KM service and the local dealer replaced the Fuel Sender without being asked
I had over the 2-1/2 years come to live with the erratic gauge.

Now reads fine, immediately shows all bars when filled up and accurate till the last 2 bars when the fuel warning light comes on.

It now also shows KM's left to go, which it didn't do before.

Re:


They must have rebooted the ECU as well with new software.
Nice for the dealer to just do that, it won't happen here unless we jump up and down and make a noise about it.
Strange, check to see if your instruments dim if they didn't before.

Re: Re:


I did read in an other thread about the dimming and gear console lighting.

The dashboard dimming never worked and still doesn't. Tried it with both buttons, all menu settings, lights on and off.

My gear indicator does light up when switching on the lights.

Might be of interest:
During the last 6 month's the CTV started to develop a whine, which became stronger and stronger to the point that my wife started to notice it. mainly when Free-wheeling.
This was mentioned to the dealer when the car was put in for service.
Don't know what they did, but the whine totally disappeared. Car is again as quiete as ever.

Other than these minor things (Including rear sensor being erratic) the car never missed a beat during now almost 70,000 KM's.
By now also stock tires need changing.

Would buy one again.

Re: Problem When filling up fuel tank


It's been a while since anyone posted on this issue, usually with the vehicle 'in warranty'.

So, can I conclude that owners, like me, who discover this issue out of warranty either (a) live with the fault; or (b) get it fixed at $$$?

Has the fault been completely fixed by replacing the fuel tank sensors/senders?

Re:


I had mine fixed under warranty, a few years ago now, but after filling the tank it still shows one bar missing, however, it will usually always show a full tank after Ive parked, switched off and then start driving again, also if I fill up before a long trip after half an hour or so of driving it will show a full tank.

Re: Problem When filling up fuel tank


Just called in to Bayside Nissan (Frankston, Vic) and was quoted $505 (total) for the two tank senders. GULP!

She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed and I have decided the trip meter will perform the role of virtual fuel gauge. (Our driving habits are fairly consistent, so there should be no surprises.)

Has anyone attempted to disassemble the sender unit(s) to see where/how the product is under-engineered?

I also found out the cost for an unpainted rear bumper is $670. :P

Or just use the distance to empty display on the trip computer.

Re:


Try the wreckers and see how much a set of used sensors would set you back and maybe try replacing them yourself to save some money.

Maybe try and find sensors from the Series 3 or 4 x-trails, as we haven't had any problems reported for the new shape T31 as yet.
