Re: No Power


The brake switch is located behind the brake pedal, if you stick your head in there you will see a little push in and out button which form part of the brake switch. That's the way it is set-up in the T30 and am sure it's the same in the T31. A faulty brake switch however will result in the brake lights not lighting-up, so am not sure how this is related to the ESP.

Here is what the brake switch looks like:

It can be removed from it's holding bracket by twisting it (no screws)

Re: No Power


Thanks Jalal,

Will attempt to have a look at this and see if it is the same thing as the T30!

I am not sure of the link myself but when they apparently replaced the switch they managed to get full use of the ESP again.

Another mystery emoticon

Re: No Power


Have just revisited this thread before heading over to Stradbroke Island this coming weekend, and was wondering if anyone who has a Series 2 or 3 experienced any power loss issues?

We haven't been off road in a while (well, nothing like Calamvale Park, anyway) and have not suffered any more loss of power related events.

Jalal, do you know if Nissan have acknowledged that there has in fact been an issue with the CVT, ESP or brake switches?

No, Nissan are refusing to acknowledge the CVT transmission problem, let alone others.

Re: No Power


That is a pitty Jalal about the recognition on this issue!

Before the exy was taken off the road for repairs we had a loss of power again and the dealership also rang me to see if we have any issues and i will certainly bring this up with them again at my 80,000 service soon!

Regards Scot

Re: No Power


I was going to start a new topic for loss of power going up a hill, when I saw this topic has already been covered. Here is my experience;

Went to a B & B at the Hunter Valley, where the 150m bitumen driveway is one of the steepest I have seen. Here are my expereinces going up that driveway during my 2 day stay. I have a 2008 Auto T31;

1) Left it Drive, but 4WD lock. Made it to the top, but a very bad burning smell from engine.

2) Forget what I had it in, but made it with no problems.

3) Left in Drive, with auto 4WD. Made it no problems.

4) Selected CTV 1st gear, with auto mode 4WD. Made 3/4 of the way, then lost all power completely, and came to stop. It then started to crawl at 1kph. I stopped car, with engine going, selected Drive, but still only went 1kph for the final 1/4 of the ascent. Bonnet was hot, but no smell.

5) Left it in Drive. Left it in 2WD. Went up the hill like a rocket. Bonnet was cool, and no smell.

I've only got 4 weeks of Warranty left, but after reading other comments on this topic about lack of problems detected at Dealership, is there any use in going to them? I had to wait 3 weeks for a part last time when the CVT wouldn't let me select any manual gear (dealt with in another topic relating to CTV problems).

A footnote to the steep driveway. The onwer of the B & B also has a Hire Car business. He takes his Ford stretch limo up the drive at least once a day without a problem!

Re: No Power


Les,

When you had the CVT in 1st and lost power 3/4 of the way up, what speed were you doing and how long did it take to get that far up the hill ?

I am thinking it might be a problem relating to sensing excessive overheating (like the rear 4WD coupling) that sends the TCM into limp mode to stop any potential damage to the CVT.

Re: No Power


Hi Kev

Can't really give you 100% answer to your query, but I suppose about a good 10km/h? I know I stopped at the bottom of the drive, selected 1st, then off I went. I wasn't thrashing it, but wasn't crawling either, just what I thought was a good speed to make it up the steep slope. It probably takes about 10 secs or so to reach the top, 20 secs at the max, not forgetting its about 150m's straight up to the top (I suppose a clever person could work that mathamatically - LOL).

I think I did the same on all the other occasions. Stopped at the bottom, then off I went. Though come to think of it, maybe not the last time because I wanted a bit of a run up because of losing power the previous attempt, but the speed still would have only been a good 10kph.

Les

Re:


Hi Les,

The question I have is why select 4WD lock on a bitumen?

Re: No Power



"The question I have is why select 4WD lock on a bitumen?"

Yes, it was bitumen, however, the start of it was not the best bitumen I had ever seen. The Internet instructions for the arrival indicated to drive "up the long steep driveway". It certainly was steep at the bottom (and all the way to the top), but as it was dark, I didn't know how long it was or the condition (loose bitumen?). Plus with over hanging gum trees, there could have been leaves and branches on the road.

So it was only the very first time I went up that I had it locked in 4WD - just a precaution for the unknown.................
