I've had my Mada in the shop 3 times for the rear sensors - they are turned off and will not turn back on. They have literally replaced every part in it (including the brain) and it is still not working. :mad:

Last week when I got it back they wrote on my service slip that the "Problem continues. Need to call Nissan Tech." I still haven't heard back from them!!!

Does anyone have any insight into what needs to be done to fix this? PLEASE!!! :pullout:

Do you mean the back-up sensor that detects objects behind you?
BTW, which dealer are you using? Besides this problem, have they been good service wise?
Thanks ;)

Yes, the back up sensor. I'm using Classic Nissan and they have been pretty good to deal with - much better than Reed!!! I do wish they would provide loaners though because last week they had my Mada overnight and that was a pain. I hear Bill Ray Nissan is nice to deal with too because they are a small, family owned dealer.

Check into the lemon laws with your state. You may be entitled to a new vehicle.

Does your Armada have the tow package?? If so then there could be short or issue with the tow sensor. When the tow mode switch is enabled it shuts off the rear sensors, so yours could be shut down from that sensor. If you don't have the tow package......then :confused:

If this is true, then that feature does not work on my Armada. I always wondered why they didn't link the two, since when I tow, every time I start the engine, I have to push two buttons instead of just one.

Yes I do have the tow package! I will call the dealer tomorrow and see if they've looked into that issue.

Thank you so much for your help!

Nuts!

I tow a couple times a week and the back-up sensor drives me nuts! I almost wish mine WOULD break!

I love my backup sensors! Let's just say I'm not a good judge of distance!

(And now for my non-pc comment of the day)
And you a girl? Go figure. ;)

I like them too. I have had them go off when a jerk zoomed up on me while I was backing up. I checked, no one there, Put it in reverse and beep. Also good for people with shopping carts jumping behind a reversing 3 ton truck. :eek:

I'm always surprised at how many stupid people do this too!!! Especially when they have small children with them!

Now I'm really confused!!!

:clueless: I called Nissan Consumer because the dealer still hasn't gotten back with me. They said there is a "tag on your vehicle for the BCM because there is an electrical short". I have NO CLUE what the heck any of that means but that is what they told me to tell the dealer.

greengoddess, I contacted nissan usa for a different reason, and they told me to contact my dealer because there is a recall on the BCM harness, but that means :clueless: , but I am going to schedule an appointment anyway to see what the heck is this.

Georgie...they are going to do the recall fix on mine on Wednesday. The service guy said the BCM harness is the Body Control Module and that is controls much of the vehicle including the engine so when it shorts out (which is what it is recalled for) it can make the vehicle do all kinds of strange stuff - still not sure exactly what all that means, but it doesn't sound so good!!! :) I'd get mine in sooner than later if I were you!
