  1. Can you take a cluster from a 97 Qx4 and install a cluster from a 98. Analog odometer to digital odometer reading without rewiring because maybe airbag light is in different place? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks guys for the responses. Last week I had to change out the rear glass hatch striker mechanism. Remove the back hatch interior cover taking out 2 screws 10mm then just pull fast and hard and it will come right off. Make sure the glass hatch is open so you can fully remove trim piece. Anyway after I installed the used striker I pulled out of a doner Qx4 everything worked fine for a week. Now my back glass hatch switch isn’t working the hatch and the rear wiper is inop. I checked the rear wiper wiring diagram and the hatch glass switch diagram and all fuses relays/amps are good. I can only assume that the reason neither one are working is the control unit I think the Smart Control unit or whichever one it is thinks the back glass is open hence the reason the rear wiper isn’t operating. I know the rear wiper won’t operate if the back glass isn’t shut completely. It doesn’t make since though because it worked for a week now it’s doing this. I also noticed my anti theft security light isn’t blinking like it should when locking all the doors. It’s acting like it isn’t setting the theft system. My lights flash upon locking with the remote but the security light never goes solid for a few seconds then into the flash pattern. It blinks like a door is open all the time. It’s really strange. I had to replace the drivers side door lock mechanism the one inside the door with the rod attachment about 2 years ago and noticed after I done that if I locked with the remote and then used the key to unlock drivers door the alarm would go off. I figured was due to using one from another QX4 is why the alarm would go off when using key in drivers door it wasn’t original mechanism to vehicle but I’m not sure why it would have started doing that. Maybe someone knows? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. How many remotes can be programmed to a 97 QX4. My doors will lock on there on unless I’m right in thinking someone has a remote programmed other than the 2 I already have programmed. Sent from my iPhone 8 Plus using Tapatalk
  4. I love the look. All that really matters is if you dig it. Sent from my iPhone 8 Plus using Tapatalk
  5. Would the throttle position sensor have anything to do with acceleration and the way the trans acts? Curious because I was told once by a mechanic that throttle issues and trans shifts have a lot to do if the TP sensor is set correctly. Sent from my iPhone 8 Plus using Tapatalk
  6. I was having the same problem, but I glued mine on. Well I used some bathroom grade caulk. That way if I ever needed to remove it without breaking the cap I could do so. Sent from my iPhone 8 Plus using Tapatalk
  7. Hey guys figured someone in here would be able to answer my question I’ve been driving my Qx4 lately And today I used the AC and drove a little bit around town went to the park came back home I was walking by and put my hand on the passenger side fender and it was almost too hot to touch the driver side was the same way so my question is how much heat is too much is it normal for the fenders to be extra hot while running the AC?

  10. Hey guys on the 3.3 it calls for 87, but would it hurt to put anything higher in it? I’m asking cause my girlfriend has over a dollar off a gallon and she has a 2000 Maxima that takes 92. Sent from my iPhone 8 Plus using Tapatalk

  15. The ole 96er. I miss her and regret getting rid of her everyday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I’ve said it before I’ll say it again. The best SUV ever built. That’s a great story @The_Qi love hearing stuff like that.
  17. Hope everyone is doing well in R50 world. I don’t see many in my town but there’s a handful still kicking around. I made a trip to Florida last year a 700 mile round trip with no problems. She purred like a new born kitten sitting on my lap.
  18. @raingoat fix should work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. I love the Frontier. Totally agree. Simple looks great and dawg gonnant, people love it! LOL
  20. The frontier is like the ranger in my opinion. I worked for a Ford dealership in Lenoir City, Tn for 8 years and the ranger didn’t change Other than minor changes to the dash and the exterior lighting. From 95 till I believe 06 the Ranger went unchanged. I’m pretty sure you could slap an 06 interior into a 95 it was simple to me it looks really good plus in my opinion they were great trucks. I’m sure I became a Ford fan only because I worked there. Had I worked at yugo well you understand where I’m going with this. LOL. As far as recalls On the Ranger I’m pretty much lost I’m sure I can look it up I was the detail man. Been cleaning cars for as long as I can remember. As far as the frontier it’s the best compact pick up on the road like you said before it’s simple looks good at a fair price. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Today’s Nissan is not yesterday’s. Quality doesn’t even come close. Growing up my parents had a Datsun b210. That damn thing went to hell and back. With me in it a few times. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. I’m actually doing the exact opposite as You. I’m in Knoxville, Tn. I picked up the roof rack you don’t want yesterday at my local pull a part for 28$ out the door. I’ll give you the one I’m taking off all you have to do is come and get it. I’m in the process of refurbishing right now. The one you can have I refurbished last week is on the Pathy below. All you need are the crossmember sections. The long sections connected to the roof stay. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Dude my bad. Lol wow I forget from time to time. I blame it on old age 43. Lol my friends say it’s the smoke. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
