Answers :

I have seen this common problem on several Altimas. You have a wire that has been pinched in your power seat that is frayed and grounding out on the seat frame causing the circuit breaker in the BCM to trip. U will need to remove the drivers seat from the car, Use a screwdriver to pop off the seat adjustment knobs, the pop off the plastic cover from the seat switch. There are two phillips head screws holding the switch to the seat. It is necessary to cut the seat material a small amount to access the screws and remove the switch. U will need to unplug the switch from the bottom side of the seat and unclip the wiring harness from the seat frame in order to remove the switch/wiring harness assembly. Once removed you will see the chafed wire. Simply cut the insulator that covers all the wires back far enough to repair the wire. I normally take a small piece of vacuum hose, split it down the middle and put over the chafed wire. Tape everything up with some electrical tape. When putting everything back together, re-route the wiring harness to a different location so it doesn't get pinched again. Re-install the seat and enjoy having all of your power options working again. If you need any more info on this or some helpful pics, let me know. Have a good day!

Antenna replacement Hi, I replaced my car stereo recently but it doesn't really help that someone had snapped off my antenna. My Nissan has a power antenna. The antenna that I got to replace it is just a standard one that doesn't move or anything. I also got an antenna adapter. Unfortunately, I don't know how to remove the antenna nor how to put in my new one or the adapter. If you could help, that would be awesome. Thank you


There should be a nut at the base of the antenna or in the car right under the antenna. take that off. then there might be two ways to do it. 1. you might have to run new antenna wire to under the dash board. or the antenna will need the adapter righ ... 1997 Nissan.5 Altima

Hi!!\015\012\015\012I am assuming that the hose that came off is the top radiator hose. Due to the loss of coolant, your motor overheated and lost power, when this happens, it makes a rattling noise, that may have been the noise you heard ... Toyota RAV4
