#4 - Electrical System problem of the 2005 Nissan Murano
Door lock actuators began to fail in our 2005 Nissan Murano. They stopped responding suddenly and when we thought the car was locked, it was in fact opened, which is a safety issue. It is a very common issue and usually all actuator go out at the same time. We have replaced driver's door actuator (that cost us $400) and now have to deal with other 3. Hopefully Nissan will recognize this as a serious problem and will issue a recall. This electrical system problem happened on Thursday, September 20, 2012.
#5 - Electrical System problem of the 2009 Nissan Murano
Our vehicle is a 2009 Nissan Murano sl with relatively low mileage. Around November of 2010 the door lock actuators began to randomly fail to work on this vehicle. Over a period of several months the malfunctioning door lock actuators spread to all four of the doors on this car. I have contacted two different dealerships after having learned that this is a very common failure on multiple year models of Nissans. Both dealers explained there was no recall and that the repairs would likely run $1200 to $1800 to fix all four doors. Living in the houston area and having a grandchild, this is an extremely dangerous situation. Nissan should be required to recall the vehicles suffering from this defect. Other vehicles that I have owned for many years never suffered a failure of such a critical component. The price dealers are charging for this repair is outrageous in light of the fact that it is so critical to safety. The inability to quickly and safely lock a vehicle invites occupants to be ejected in the event of a crash and makes occupants of the vehicle much more vulnerable to car jacking or other forced entry crimes. Please look into the frequency and severity of this issue and force Nissan to acknowledge this very significant defect in their vehicles. It was Nov. 3, 2010 when this electrical system issue happened.

#6 - Electrical System problem of the 2006 Nissan Murano
The vehicle was a 2006 Nissan Murano. Faulty fuel gauge, fuel float or fuel monitoring system. I filled up the car and the gauge reads empty. It will erratically show different fuel levels ranging anywhere from empty to half-full to full. This is a safety issue because it is impossible to know how much fuel is left. After doing a brief internet search I discovered that their are multiple entries for this issue from other Nissan owners. It was Wed., Aug. 14, 2013 when this electrical system issue occurred.

#7 - Electrical System problem of the 2003 Nissan Murano
The car involved was a 2003 Nissan Murano. I was driving my vehicle and the engine stalled. Once it happened when I was driving at about 25mph and the vehicle just shut off and twice when I was at a red light while the vehicle was ideling. Also I was driving in the hwy last week and the engine lst power for about 3 second, putting at a great risk for a crash. The other problem I am having is the passenger door actuator that stopped working so when I lock my car that won't lock putting my vehicle at a risk for being stolen. I called Nissan corp because I knew that was a recall id # 78963 - engine and engine Nissan is recalling 362,891 my 2003-2007 Murano vehicles. The intake air ducts, which are connected to the intermediate resonator in the air intake system of the engine, may separate from the resonator with engine movement. This separation occurs due to the premature aging of the material used in the intake air ducts which causes excessive shrinking, and because of that engine may stall increasing the risk of a crash. However the representative said that there is nothing to worry about and my vehicle was not included in the recall even though it is the same model and year of the vehicle recalled. This problem occurred on 08/08/13.

#15 - Electrical System problem of the 2005 Nissan Murano
The car involved was a 2005 Nissan Murano. VIN of the vehicle was JN8AZ08W75_. The front drivers door failed. . More specifically, when the lock system is activated electronically, the doors typically fail to completely lock or unlock completely. Visually, the inside lock 'button' only moves partway. There is reason to believe this affects many owners of Nissan and infinity vehicles. Some suspect actuator problems and others suspect relay problems. There is an investigation into a class action law suit and there's petitions. The manufacturer doesn't want to claim responsibility and this problem is affecting thousands of owners. This problem has safety implication and can create potentially life threatening situations. I advice that this problem be taken seriously and make the manufacturers accountable for these defects. Thank you. This electrical system issue occurred Sat., Jan. 1, 2011.

The vehicle is a 2005 Nissan Murano. All of my locks no longer work. I have seen countless complaints about this very issue and nothing is getting done about it. I thought Nissan was suppose to be one of the best out there. I'll never buy another Nissan again if they continue not to assist their customers. I also have the air intake issue, thankfully that was recalled and will be fixed. I had to replace the front struts, oil cooler gasket, front sway bar links and the battery has been changed 3 times now.

My trunk will unlock selectively and with this model there is no other way to get in our out the trunk aside from the tail gate I took it to the dealer to get it fixed and when his response immediately was "it's your actuators, we get these all the time with your kind of car" it struck a nerve with me and I didn't get it done when I found out the cost is $400 per door that's including labor I then started to do research on line and I see forums of over a thousand 05/06 Murano owners with the same issue that im having some have replaced them some have complained there was petitions and nothing has been done god forbid someone who doesn't realize this gets in and like most of us locks there doors behind them only to realize it didn't with something awful like a burglary or something. . .

The vehicle was a 2005 Nissan Murano. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is JN8AZ08TX5_. Has faulty electronic locks. Viewed as a safety issue as it prevents the ability to get in and/or out in a quick and efficient manner should there be an emergency. The door will not unlock/lock using the electronic devices or buttons and in order to unlock the door you have to open another door and reach over and manually unlock. I have significant concerns related to my and my family's safety in the vehicle. After research it appears that this problem is common and Nissan is not taking any responsibility to replace or repair causing significant (up to $1600) financial cost to the owner. This electrical system issue occurred Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2011.
#29 - Electrical System problem of the 2005 Nissan Murano
The vehicle involved is a 2005 Nissan Murano. Driver's door and rear passenger door locks will not lock when actuated from the door power lock or the remote power lock. This is a danger because it means door locks can not be relied to power lock or unlock in the event of an emergency. It was Jul. 16, 2010 when this electrical system issue happened.
#30 - Electrical System problem of the 2005 Nissan Murano
The car is a 2005 Nissan Murano. Door locks not functioning properly. Will not lock/unlock from fob or interior switch on the interior of the vehicle. This is a safety concern because in the event of a crash you may not be able to unlock the doors to exit the vehicle or it may prevent emergency medical personnel to easily gain access to the vehicle. It is also a concern because it can potentially leave the vehicle vulnerable to potential theft of items in the interior of the vehicle since they don't reliably lock.

#32 - Electrical System problem of the 2005 Nissan Murano
Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is JN8AZ08T85_. It seems that I have all of the well known problems with the Nissan Murano. I got the air bag light that won't turn off which to me is a major safety and very dangerous issue. I heard that in case of an accident the air bags and seat belts won't work. Nissan needs to address this problem ASAP before someone or multiple people lose their life because of their lack of responsibility. Another problem I have is none of door actuators work including the rear hatch door except for the driver's side door that door is the only door that unlocks and locks which I also think it's another safety issue. I also have the bad power steering rack which I mentioned a lot is a safety issue. The steering has so much play that its difficult to drive I wish Nissan would step up to the plate and admit that these should be repaired because of their bad engineering with these trucks. It was Monday, May. 9, 2011 when this electrical system issue occurred.
#33 - Electrical System problem of the 2003 Nissan Murano
The vehicle was a 2003 Nissan Murano. Please help! I have been having issues with this car ever since I bought it at this small dealer in arlington va. Saturday March 3, 2012, my Nissan Murano stalled. I am afraid the car will stall when I am driving on the highway and this could be a safety issues for me and other innocent people. This is not the first time it stalled. Today my driver side window is stuck and won't move up or down. Must be some electrical problem. I have contacted Nissan on issues with this car before and they refused to help me. Can someone point me in the right direction as to who I need to talk to and who can help me to get this resolved? I truly believe this car needs to be recalled and is not included in the past recalls that have been recorded. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6). It was 03/05/2012 when this electrical system issue occurred.
