Turned out to be a bad earth in the engine compartment. I had degreased the engine and knocked out some of the crud around the earthing point. The earthing wire was subsequently loose. Got an electrical fault? CHECK ALL THE EARTH CONNECTIONS FIRST!!! I had checked all the switches, relays and connectors I could get at before checking the earth connections...

To find a diagram for your Nissan Pintara steering rack, consult the owner's manual. You can also find the diagram at different auto part stores.

The computer is behind the left hand passengers side kick pannel. Remove the pugs, undo the screws and the pannel will pull away. Hopefully this helps! :D

If the left light on your Pintara has stopped working, but the globes and fuses are okay, the wire may have a problem which causes it to lose power. To determine the problem, trace the wire to check for a break.

unhook the positive battery cable wait 5 minutes hook back up codes cleared This will work on some vehicles, especially up until 1995. After that one some vehicles, the only way to reset the computer is with an OBD 2 scan tool. If you do not repair the problem then the computer will store a new code, and the light will come back on.

Does it have airbags ? If not the centre of the steering wheel will have a removable badge or logo, remove this and you will see a nut that needs to be loosened with a wrench/socket

There is no switch to activate or deactivate the brake lights on a 1988 Nissan. The brake lights automatically turn on any time the brakes are pressed.

You can find where you need to put the brake fluid on a 1987 Nissan by lifting your hood. The brake fluid reservoir is in the engine compartment, on the drivers side, attached to the master cylinder.

143 lb ft of torque for the 1990 model. 148 lb ft of torque for the 1991-1992. Of the Stanza models, the 1992 is widely considered the closest to a fwd version of the 240sx benefiting in large part by the later refinements to engine/transmission dynamics. As such, these vehicles were highly successful in other counties, where driving conditions warranted that type of power/torque to be directed to the front wheels. Of the 240sx/Silvia and the Stanza/Pintara, the Stanza/Pintara was the more popular and sold in higher numbers when compared on a world platform.

Most cars from 1990-2000 take 30-33 psi(pounds per square inch.) But to be on the safe side,either check on the sidewall of the tire or the side of the door jam.

Hey Joe==First take out all of the screws you can find. Then remove all 0f the retainers on the outer edge of the panel. This requires a special tool to pull them out Some don't have them on the top and bottom. GoodluckJoe

Door Trim RemovalTo remove door trim on '91 model NISSAN PINTARA you have to unscrew the handle (two Philips head screws). next take off plastic surounding door release (it just clips on). then this part is tricky - you might need two flat blade screwdrivers to remove the W clip that holds the window winder handle (unless you have power windows)! after you remove the winder handle just carefully pull on the edges of the door trim to pull the clips off the door all the way around! presto the door trim comes off! just reverse process to put it back on!

replace don't repairtake out the whole instrument cluster and bin get another form wrecker Skyline one are the same including tach. The odometer cost (out of instrument cluster) about $100 so its not financially viable. At the wrecker check there are some kilometre on trip meter if its 000 is probably another dud.

well i am the one that asked the question but i actually figured it out for most single cam cars just allign the crank shaft on top dead centre and on the cam shaft just point the marker or dot down towards the centre of the crank pully and fit the belt back on. easy as that!
