If I indicate left, I lose all power and kangaroo down the road like a learner. If I put my lights on I lose acceleration completely toothed extent I have to turn off my lights even at night to accelerate away from lights! Occasionally the radio screen goes off when I brake and the fog lights also come on occasionally when I brake but these haven't happened for ages. The main problem is the lack of acceleration and the kangarooing.

Now I have just rang Nissan to book it in for the earth upgrade. None of the mechanics there have ever heard of an earth problem , even the 'master mechanic'. They tried to tell me that the problem is corrosion in pin 5 at the rear and degradation of the light clusters. They are currently getting me a price for this but is this what I need to do? I don't want to pay Nissan a fortune to replace bits that I don't need to but I want it fixing as I'm starting to hate the car I used to love.

Any ideas greatly appreciated
Its the same thing, Nissan will replace the whole thing do the earth fix for nothing

Hi all,

I'm also new to NPOC and Nissans, I am having the same problems, I have found the DIY fix in the 'how to' section. Unfortunately there are no photos due to Photobox changing their policy. Please can anyone help by providing photos to go with the instructions. Thank you in advance.

Hi and welcome to the forumHandshake
Yes we have been a bit stuffed by photobucket's change of policy, ( I cant blame them to be fair but it is a bit annoying)
All I can describe is remove the plastic cover under the hatch, und the bolt securing the light, carefully but firmly pull the light off, be carful as it is held by thin plastic legs. Unscrew the lights, wrap a wire around the metal circuit and rout it to one of the bolt positions, put back, job done
