  1. A/C Pressure Sensors - Compressor Only Works When Jumped

    Repair Questions
    Hello all, I can't get my AC compressor in my 04 to turn on at any fan speed setting. It only turns on when I manually short circuit it - so I know the compressor/clutch is still engaging and in good shape. With the compressor jumped on, the freon is at normal operating levels. Thinking it has...

    So my 01 Xterra is a hand me down from my mother and I'm trying to fix everything up with it. Especially, since I recently had a car accident and spent almost 700 dollars in repair.

  6. Heater/AC fan not blowing air

    Repair Questions
    Hello, So i have a 2002 Xterra SE SC 4X4 the heater/ac fan is not blowing any air. This started about a year ago with it blowing 90% of the time then slowly over time not working at all. When the heat is on, it does get hot and the a/c it gets cold but there is no air actually blowing. I do...
  7. Max A/C Fan Speed

    Repair Questions
    I just purchased a 2009 Xterra. On every other car I've owned the Max A/C button sets the fan speed to Hi+1. On my X the fan speed does not increase when I press the Max button. The light on the switch comes on and the recirculate light comes on but the fan speed doesn't change. The A/C is...
  8. Strange Overheating Behavior

    Repair Questions
    Back in June, my A/C went out and I did not get it fixed due to the expense. At that time, any time I had the A/C running, the engine temperature would indicate it was overheating. The shop I took it to removed the A/C belt and basically just said "don't use it", and I haven't. Fast forward to...

    Repair Questions
    Hey guys, I'm a new member and a new Xterra owner. I recently purchased a 2003 Xterra SE and I love it so far.

    New Member Introductions
    Hey guys, my name is Zac, and I just bought a 2010 Xterra on Monday. I found this site as I was poking around online looking for complaints from other Xterra owners.

    I punctured mine and need a new (but used) one. A new new one is too expensive. Will trade for rear sway bar or stock running boards (both from a 2000). Or let me know how much you want for it. This Guy

    So my high line has a dye all over the place and blows hot air. I bought the replacement line and a new drier. I have a 2002 SE Supercharger, and although the line only has two bolts, there is a bunch of junk on top of the line that I'm wondering if I need to remove? Also, do I need...
  16. I got a new A/C line and what?

    Repair Questions
    so in posting and reading numerous threads, I have the parts I need. Now, I can't seem to get an answer from anyone on how to apply vacuum to the system while replacing these parts, what to use for vacuum, or where to apply the vacuum....

    I've had a small leak somewhere in the line for a while now. I recharged the system and it worked for about 3 months...then I recharged it again, and it only lasted 2 weeks. Now I can visually see it leaking, and have noticed where the leak is. It appears to be the hose that attaches to the...
  18. Fan only works on #4 speed... Suggestions?

    Repair Questions
    Hey All, So here's the deal, my AC/Heat only starts blowing when I turn the dial all the way to #4. My first thought was that it's the switch/dial, BUT when I have the AC button depressed and turn it from 0 to 1, 2 or 3 the green light comes on - meaning that it sensed the switch was turned, or...

  20. Blower motor resistor

    Repair Questions
    My heat/ac isn't working on 1 or 2, but 3 and 4 work just fine. I know the problem/fix, just have to swap out the blower motor resistor (about $25 at AutoZone, maybe cheaper elsewhere). Had the same exact problem on my 2001 Sentra, thought it might have been the switch so I replaced that too...
