Nissan Note: common problems and quick fixes

If one wants to decide on an individually suitable vehicle, the first question to ask is what demands the automobile should fulfil. Yet, while some see it as the ideal used-car and some as a perfect second vehicle, others have pointed out that there are some common Nissan Note problems that you should be aware of before you decide to purchase one. 

Excessive engine vibration

This is not a usual issue with the Note. It could be caused by a damaged engine right support. This is easy and inexpensive to replace. Check out our Nissan Note parts and accessories
to find what you need. 

Strange “whistling” sound

This is most likely a worn-out alternator belt. Again, this is easily done yourself in just a few minutes.

Temperature light doesn’t stay off

First check and see if the wiring is working properly, and that there aren’t any visible faults. If you don’t find anything there, you could have a malfunctioning radiator fan. It is possible to continue driving, but we don’t recommend it. This part should be replaced as soon as possible. 

Unwieldy back seats

 Nissan Note problem isofix base

Even if at first read, this doesn’t seem to be a severe issue, it could very well come one. Notes manufactured from January to March 2016 have a malfunctioning ISOFIX mount built-in for the rear seats, resulting in the seats not performing as expected in the case of a side impact. This puts passengers in harm’s way. We recommend replacing the defective brackets.

A/C doesn’t work

In the last few years, Nissan has switched over to using eco-friendly gas. This has increased the price so significantly, that in some situations it’s less expensive to just purchase car air conditioning parts and do the new a/c installation yourself.

Windscreen wipers switch on by themselves

 Nissan Note problem windscreen wipers

This can happen quite unexpectedly while you are driving. Apparently, this is not uncommon with the Note. This is most probably an ECU error. In most instances, it can be reprogrammed by a professional mechanic. Sometimes, however, this won’t help and you’ll have to get a new unit. 

Gear shifting malfunction

It is not uncommon that the Note’s gears slip when you shift. This is often costly, since a new torque converter has to be mounted. Make sure you go to a mechanic for this. Keep in mind that most garages will let you buy a part yourself and bring it to them to be fitted into your vehicle.

Steering area produces clicking sounds

If you have been hearing odd sounds when you are going around corners, this might be caused by a malfunctioning clip on the steering shaft. Replacing the clip will take care of this.

Idling problems

If your engine doesn’t run well at idle, the most likely cause will be the ignition coils. This is another simple repair. We do advise that you change all four of the coils when you do this. 

Brake light malfunction

It’s not uncommon for the 3rd brake light to malfunction on the Note. This is due to water entering this area and causing the light to be damaged. Simply replacing the bulb is a quick fix. 

Fog lights don’t turn off

If your car is still under warranty, the manufacturer will fix this at no cost to you. If it no longer is, you’ll have to put in a replacement multifunction control model.

The vehicle stalls

The engine gets too hot causing the vehicle to stall. This malfunction caused Nissan to issue a recall. The Notes that were affected by this were manufactured between July of 2015 and Jan. 2016. You can easily repair this without having to go to a mechanic. You only need to get a new ignition coil. 

Battery problems

Nissan Note problem battery

Some Note owners have reported that the battery that came with their vehicle drained too quickly. Put a bit more juice into your vehicle by putting in a new Nissan Note battery.

As you can see by the problems we mentioned, most are quite easy to fix yourself. So even though the Nissan Note may not be perfect in every way, it might still be a great investment if your budget is tight, or as a second family vehicle.
