 While driving on the i95 the car shut off and would not restart at 55mph. thank god, i did not get into an accident and was able to coast over to the guardrail. i had to have my car towed to my mechanic that informed me it appeared to be the crankshaft sensor and said since it was a recall item i should have it brought to my local nissan dealer. i had the car towed to miller nissan in fairfield ct and informed them of my mechanics findings. they checked the car and told me it was the fuel pump and replaced it even with me expressing that my current mechanic already checked that. after replacing the fuel pump they called me back and said it still wasn't working. it ended up being the ecm along with another sensor!! i expressed how upset i was that this sensor failed why i was driving at a high speed on the highway! i am currently working with nissan corporate recall department because everything i'm reading is still indicating that the crankshaft sensor could cause malfunctions in other sensors in the car!! i'm not happy that nissan is charging me for the new fuel pump they installed along with the sensors totaling $1,943,00!! *tr

 The vehicle was purchased new in 2006. two weeks later the car would not crank and the engine had to be replaced. shortly after, i noticed that the heating system did not work in the vehicle. when i palced my foot on the brake, the heat blew out cold air. i knew there was someting wrong, therefore i called the dealership to report this problem and was told that that is the way new models are made. this problem was not fixed. in the winter when the cat is not moving (such as at a red light) cold air blows in the car, not heat. i have experienced rattling noises with my car. it can be heard when the car is driven as if something is loose. i took the car to the dealership in 2011 to have it checked. i got the car fixed by an independent mechanic and the noise continued. each year i have gotten my rotors and brake pads replaced in the front and rear. i do not think this is normal. i have had my car 5.5 years with 79k miles. problems have occured with the electrical part of the car. the lights have become deemed when i drove on 2 occassions, the passenger door will not lock, the seat does not adjust all the way down, and sometimes when i press the alarm button om my key, my windows have went down automatically.

 Vehicle would turn over but would not start. this has happened twice. once at around 60,000 miles and the next time at 64,000 miles. both times it ended up being the camshaft sensor. both camshaft sensors were replaced as recommended by the shop.

 While driving on interstate 580 in emeryville california in evening rush hour traffic my car began to jerk rapidly and then stopped while in traffic, the service engine light came on, after 5 attempts the car started. this happened numerous times while traveling to work on highway 50 and also while driving on surface streets. this makes me nervous and fearful when driving this vehicle and finally after the stopping multiple times on the interstate and at red lights, i took the car in for a diagnostic test and was advised my crankshaft sensor needed to be replaced and there was a recall per nissan america for this known issue. i took the car in and was advised my vin# was part of the recall but the damaged crankshaft sensor would not be replaced, only a reset of the ecm. i was advised that the ecm would not be reset due to the service engine light is on due to the faulty crankshaft sensor. i was also charged for a diagnostic test whicch basically confirmed the problem that service department was already aware of per the vin#. there are thousands of complaints regarding the 2006 nissan altima and a the faulty crankshaft sensor which can cause the vehicle to stop. i am scared to drive on the interstate due to fear that the car will stop and cause a pileup and or even death. i have contacted nissan america @1 800 647 7261 and they are not cooperative. they are aware of this issue however will not replace the defective crankshaft sensor. since this is a known issue then i strongly feel that nissan should take responsibility and replace the defective part. customers should not fear for their lives when driving and should not have to pay to repair a known defect. i am considering taking legal action against nissan since they failed to take responsibility and resolve my issue.

 My 2006 nissan altima turned off on me coming to an intersection twice. i found out about the recall on the sensor so i take it in to the dealer to get it fix. what i am being told by the dealer ship is that my altima is shutting off because there's oil on my cam and crank sensor which they are charging me $370.00. i am hearing that they are getting alot of cars with this oil on the sensor. he said that the sensors had alot of oil on it. i asked then how come i never saw any oil spots where i parked? oil on the sensors sounds like this should be the recall. can you help to see if the dealer is getting away with this? can you help?? *cn

 Subject crank position sensor. subject car 2006 nissan altima 2.5. recall was received about the same time the car started dying while driving. when traveling at low speeds the engine will die causing a very dangerous situation when the car looses power and power steering stalling in the middle of the road. when traveling at freeway speeds the engine shuts off, the car looses power for approximately 3 seconds then violently jerks regaining power. nissan dealer has stated that this is an ecm problem and that a reprogram will fix this problem. i took the car into the dealer and the reprogram of the ecm was completed. now the car dies more frequently and now it takes considerable cranking to start the car when warm. approximately 2 min. to restart. nissan has tried to band aid a faulty crank position sensor with an ecm reprogram that is not working. the car abruptly dying is a very dangerous situation and can easily lead to uncalled for injuries and deaths stemming from this faulty sensor. i agree that the upgraded ecm program should read both the cam position sensor and crank position sensor in tandem as a redundant feature but if the problem is with a leaky sensor or a bad solder joint in the sensor, the sensor should be replaced under a recall. *tr

 The heater/air conditioning blower tends to not operate periodically! examples: on a cold morning, the car had to be returned home since there was no blower. on a damp day, the interior windows could not be defogged due to no blower. on a damp morning, the frost on the exterior of the windshield could not be cleared by the defrost setting since the blower failed to operate. we wonder how safe this vehicle would be during a period of freezing rain! or during a snowfall? please advise on what action should be taken to remedy this serious defect.
