Nissan Juke Owners Club
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Sounds familiar but not all the engines suffer from it so not sure why this particular one The 1.6 petrol is a very strong engine and pretty much trouble free
  3. I'm on my 2nd replacement cam chain for my Nissan Juke. According to a couple of garages I have spoken to, this is a common issue known to Nissan. Does anyone know anything about this or have had similar experiences ? I love the car but now need to replace it. Definitely won't be buying another if Nissan are not addressing the issue though. Thanks in advance for any input
  4. Its worth pursuing as a private claim if there is no group which is already challenging the issue with Nissan Do a Google search to see if anyone else is pursuing it and maybe it may sway the dealership decision with some financial assistance to resolve it Alternatively you could try to find an independent transmission specialist who may know the issue and the modification to repair the gearbox
  5. Hi guys, New to the forum so please be nice.... So the other day I noticed my Juke 1.6 Auto stalling in between 1st and 2nd gear. After a bit of research, I found that this is a common defect in models from 2012-2017. Mine is a 66 plate and only done 60k miles. I seen in America there was a class action against Nissan in which they extended the warranty on the CVT in these cars to 80ish thousand miles. However, that doesn't help us here in the UK. I know getting a new transmission fitted here will be in the thousands of pounds. This I just cannot afford. Just wondering if anyone has any advice on how to go about getting this sorted without it bankrupting me? Has anyone managed to get a decent deal from Nissan to get this fixed due to it being a well known defect? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  6. Not entirely sure which ones they should be but if going to get new ones from Halfords their tablet in the bulb aisle will state which ones they should be
  7. Hope someone can help, I've a 16 plate juke and according to the book the front fog light lamps should be H8 35W. I brought new ones and these wouldn't fit. When looking at the ones that came out theses were H11 55W lamps so I'm not sure what is going on .
  8. Threaten an ombudsman to the RAC directly and see what they come up with They may have an independent assessor go to the garage which they should do if the garage is an approved repairer
  9. Thanks for the reply. RAC have tried to distance themselves completely from it saying basically it is my responsibility. Their latest is I need to get in touch with the garage and allow 8 weeks for them to reply. I have pointed out to them that the car was not recovered to garage of my choice but their so called "Approved" garage. Still waiting for a reply. Called the garage again this morning, they said they would call back this afternoon. No surprise that they haven't. They have now had it for six weeks.
  10. I think you can switch off this setting as it can be annoying especially if the disc is not updated
  11. I think I would get onto the RAC and insist they oversee this situation. I cannot see how an ECU has anything to do with a lack of compression and should be a straightforward job Keep us updated on how it goes
  12. Probably been asked a million times but how do I stop the speed camera / traffic light warning from flashing up on display unit ? I have looked in owners manual but nothing jumps out as a help TIA
  13. Car suddenly started loosing power on the motorway on 25th June (1.2 petrol on 17 plate). Initially it cut out completely, but when the recovery service got to me, it started back up again. RAC said it was not firing on one of the cylinders. I asked for it to be recovered to my local garage, but they said because it was "driveable", they said they would only take it to their nearest "Approved" garage. They suggested I drive it and they followed me to their "Approved" garage where it was left and they arranged a taxi for me back home. After a week, was told by the garage the timing chain had stretched, resulting in the valves being damaged on one of the cylinders and therefore no compression. Was told the valves had to be ordered as a complete set total cost with fitting and new chain was £2k, not great news but said OK do it. Next week was then told they had been sent the wrong size bolts for the head and waited another week for the right ones to turn up. I was then told that the ECU had been burnt out as a result of the alternator spiking. They replaced the ECU and was then told that the new (refurb) one was faulty so they ordered another one, another week delay. Then the replacement turned up and was told that as soon as they tried to start it, that too had tripped out, so they ordered another. Last week they put another (3rd) one in, and was told that one one had gone as well. As of yesterday, 31st July, still not heard anything. They have now had it for five weeks. Been on to the RAC this morning who are going to look into it as I pointed out it is their "Approved" garage, not where I had asked it to be recovered to. Waiting to hear back from them. One thing I have thought with regards to the ECU, could this have been damaged by the garage? My thinking is that if the car had been delivered to them on a tow truck, then possibly it could have been damaged before. However given the fact that the car was driven into them or be it with no compression on the one cylinder, the ECU presumably was OK or it would not have started in the 1st place. On face value. it would appear that the ECU issue has only happened since they took it apart not before. It also seems a bit odd that including the original, 4 of them have been burnt out when they tried to start it back up. I'm not by any means a mechanic, so any advice would be useful.
  14. Worth pulling the door card off to see what is going on inside Quite an easy job and if you need to take it to a garage then it shouldn't cost much to find the fault and repair it
  15. Thanks Trevor. It's the front passenger door. I've been on to the 'Vehicle Settings' for 'Locking' and had a play with the settings there and it's no change. I've also used the switched on the drivers side door and the intelligent key to try to unlock it and it still isn't opening. We have to unwind the window and use the outer door handle to open it.
  16. It could be the Central Locking is locked and only when the ignition is off will it open? Alternatively there is a child lock on if its a rear door
  17. I have a 2023 Hybrid Juke and for some reason, my front passenger door has suddenly stopped opening when the inside handle is pulled. Any suggestions please? Thanks
  18. I would have that checked immediately as it is in the region of the brake pipes and hoses which look at first glance to have heavy corrosion on them
  19. So I have a 17 plate and I noticed a couple of wet patches so I looked underneath and this bar underneath the car at the bottom is wet. The other side is very damp and slimy and I noticed some droplets. Is this something I should be worried about and get checked. I have only had the car 2 months and it’s already been back to the garage I got it from 4 times for various things that have gone wrong such as exhaust falling to bits due to extreme corrosion.
  20. Could be that the audio (firmware) upgrade required Be worth talking to your local Nissan dealer considering the age of the car it should be covered for this sort of fault
  21. Hi all Really would appreciate your advice. For the last couple of months the car play on my 2021 Juke just will not recognise my phone. Prior to that it was fine and my wife has exactly the same phone as me, which works fine. Furthermore, my phone works perfectly on my other car’s car play. It’s frustrating, so I’d be so grateful for any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
  22. Hi, this is excatly what I am experiencing with my brand new Qashqai Tekna+ and it is driving me crazy too. Nothing showing up on diagnostics at the garage but to me this is a serious and dangerous fault. I can't believe this is normal driving for the car. Did you ever get to the bottom of it or get it diagnosed as a fault? I would be extremely interested to know how it panned out. Thanks, Neil
  23. It could be that the EGR or DPF are blocked and this may have contributed to the intercooler hose failing. I would run some cleaner through the fuel and also take for a run to increase the revs over a time and clear it through Sounds like it needs a good 'Italian Tuneup' to sort it out
  24. Hi can anyone help me please. My mothers car juke 1.5 diesel (maybe 2012) she was driving heard a bang car went into limp mode(or ran very rough) she carried on driving it for a further few Miles then car stopped completely and she was recovered back home when she got home I looked under bonnet and seen the intercooler/turbo hose broke so ordered and have now replaced it. the car is stilL not running properly won’t rev past about 2k and originally as soon as foot off accelerator it would die. Lots of smoke coming out of exhaust After about 30 mins this has got a bit better but still Won’t rev properly. plugged in my code reader and 3 faults relating to exhaust pressure p0471 p047b im Assuming that some Carbon/fuel is blocking exhaust system but not sure ? is there a easy way to fix ? thanks a lot lester
  25. Hi Trevor, thanks for your response! That gives me a bit more confidence that its just going to be a bit of a learning curve
  26. We have a Juke in the family and the clutch is also quite lively and takes a few more revs to keep things smooth when pulling away
