Nissan Murano owners have reported 90 problems related to electrical system (under the electrical system category).
I have noticed on numerous occasions this summer, a crackling sound in lower portion of the front windshield. I actually remember hearing it last summer but it is now more audible. The warm weather must be a factor. I have also experienced problems with my keyless fob, it does not always work and my ignition an rear lift gate sometimes will operate even when the fob is within 3 feet. This has occurred several times over the past 2 months. I took it to Nissan and they could not find the problem. I purchased the car brand new in Aug. 2011. No accidents.

My vehicle hatch back will not open unless I use the emergency lock which is located inside the vehicle. This concerns me because if there was an emergency where I would need to open the rear hatch from the outside I wouldnt be able to.

Tl-the contact owns a 2005 Nissan Murano. The contact stated while coming to a stop, the brake pedal was depressed repeatedly however, the vehicle increased speed. The vehicle failed to slow down and crashed into a nearby brick building. The front seat passenger suffered from injuries to both knees and chest. A police report was filed of the incident. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic with severe front end damages. There was also damage to the brick building. The vehicle was currently being repaired. Prior to the crash the front driver's and passenger's side windows and four power door locks opened independently while parked. The manufacturer was not notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 76,000. Js.

The intelligent key system and the key fob do not unlock the doors consistently. They do not unlock the driver or front passenger doors at all, and from time to time will unlock the rear doors. We have been experiencing this for over a year.
I was driving my Nissan Murano going 45mph when suddenly the engine light flashed, the air went out, and the car shut off. I was pressing the gas but it wouldn't do anything and it suddenly shut off. I've been to several shops that can't find a problem so they told me about the recall on the 2003 Nissan Murano. They think it's maybe electrical or engine cooling.

While driving at around 30 miles per hour a loud noise coming from under the dashboard gps screen was very noticeable and at the same time the screen went black for about 45 seconds then it came up alive again.

Driving on the interstate. Abs lights, brake lights, and odometer stopped working. Smelled burning from under the hood. Took it to a Nissan dealership who determined that the fuse box was faulty, the abs module went out as well as the ecm. Dealership said that my air bags were not functioning since the incident, and that the vehicle was unsafe to drive. When searching to find out what happened, found numerous incidents of Nissan vehicles having the same exact issue.
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.

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.
My vehicle caught fire as I proceeded to pull away from a curbside parking space. I turned my wheel to the far left as I proceeded away from the curb and that is when I heard a pop sound, saw white smoke spewing from the front right side of the vehicle, then I saw the flames. Five days prior to the incident, I had front brake pads and resurfaced rotors placed on the vehicle. Within the past 30 days the only other maintenance performed on the vehicle was a standard oil change.
Unable to open driver's and passengers front door. Was finally able to open passenger front door still unable to open driver's. If you want to drive car at this point must climb over seat.

Tl-the contact owns a 2012 Nissan Murano. The contact stated that while driving a 70 mph, an abnormal noise was heard from the dashboard area. The vehicle was shut off an restarted but the noise continued. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who was unable to determine the cause of the failure. The dealer stated that certain parts needed to be replaced but the contact was not aware of what parts needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 9,000. Kmj.
Automatic door locks on all four doors malfunctioned, not autolocking or unlocking with Smart key, or door handle button. Passenger side is intermittant, so it is uncertain when door is locked or not and I cannot get my child out of the car from the outside without someone else being inside to manually unlock the back doors. This is an emergency safety issue and requires recall.
Passenger door, passenger-side rear door, driver-side rear door and trunk door will not unlock while pressing the key fob twice. Manually unlocking the doors by using the keyhole on the outside of the driver door does not solve the above problem. Manually unlocking the doors by using the driver / passenger side unlock button on the armrest does not solve the above problem. Trunk door cannot be opened with any of the above means due to absence of manual lock/unlock lever on the exterior of the door.
First my driver door lock would work and then it wouldn't. Next the same thing happened with the lift gate lock and now it doesn't work at all so I had a repair shop replace the hatch lock and it still doesn't work.
The car was put in reverse and there were no overhead street lamps. Nothing could be seen but a glare from the guide lines on the screen. You can't tell if you are backing up on grass or pavement. You can not tell if there is a mail box, sprinkler, dog or child behind your car at night. The camera works but is blurry during daylight hours.

The driver door will not lock or un-lock using the key fob. This is a safety issue because they no longer will lock automatically.
Passenger door does not lock or unlock from the outside. Rear hatch door does not unlock and will not open. I checked online and there are hundreds of complaints about Nissan Murano lock actuators posing problems and not working. Nissan dealerships charge approximately $500 to fix each actuator, which seems extremely unfair considering it appears to be such a common defect. This is not only an unnecessary and preventable problem, but can be an extremely safety hazard.
The driver power door lock actuator failed first and few days ago the passenger side, rear power door lock actuator failed.

Nissan Murano door actuators have failed on 2 of 4 doors, leaving me unable to enter/exit my vehicle with the remote. In addition, I cannot open the trunk of the vehicle unless the passenger door actuator is working, which it does not. The inside door locks do not move, so I do not know if my car is ever locked or unlocked, again, safety concern. Please investigate this, as I know other owners have complained and Nissan continues to ignore this as an issue!!!.
The locks on the doors will sporadically lock or unlock and I am afraid my child may get locked in the car one day if keys are left in passenger seat when walking around vehicle to get child. This poses a serious threat to children or anyone in an unsure environment.
Rear hatch stopped working. Since it can only be opened from the inside (with the panel removed) this is a safety issue. There is no handle on this year model that will work without electrical assistance. When the open button is pushed (either from inside the car or on the key fob) there is no sound indicating that the rear hatch is being contacted at all. We have tried replacing the fuse and a control module but neither of those have corrected the issue. There absolutely should be a manual latch on the rear hatch so that it can be opened without the assistance of the electrical system.
2005 Nissan Murano sl with only 58,000 miles on it has the seat defect where it is stuck and won't move forward and back. It appears that the bracket system attachment to the floor has become broken. This is a dangerous manufacture defect that can cause accidents and the car to be unable to drive. The repair for this is quoted at $1,500. Nissan should recall these and fix them on their own cost, not the consumer.
The contact owns a 2009 Nissan Murano. The contact stated that the battery of her vehicle had to be replaced 3 times and the air bag and tpms warning lights were illuminated. The dealer stated that the sensors would have to be replaced. The manufacturer was notified. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 700.
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.
All four power door lock actuators are bad in the car. This is preventing the doors from properly locking and unlocking. This is a major safety issue for the car. I have looked online and there are hundreds of complaints about door lock actuators on 2004 Muranos.
Problem with the tilt and telescope of the steering column. When turning on the car, gears seem to be grinding and the automatic feature no longer works. Wheel does not return to the pre-set location. Also the auto seat feature does not return to the pre-set location. There's a big problem with the electrical system in the 2009 Nissan Murano. A couple of months ago, it cost me over $500 to get the rear hatch door fixed when all of a sudden it locked shut. Of course, there's no way to unlock this manually from inside the vehicle and this could be a potential safety hazard.
There are three ways to lock and unlock the doors; using the remote, using the key and using the interior locks. The remote does not lock nor unlock the driver's nor the front passenger doors. The key, which can only be used in the driver's door lock, will lock and unlock all doors except the front passenger side door. The interior locking mechanism located on the drivers door will not unlock nor lock the front driver's nor the passenger side doors. At this time the only way to unlock the driver's and the front passenger side doors is to reach over and use the interior handle. Once the front doors are unlocked the only way to lock them is to manually move the locking switch to the locked position. This problem seems to have affected hundreds if not thousands of Nissan Murano's the inability to lock and unlock the front doors is critical to the safety of the vehicle's occupants. The driver cannot lock the front doors, which is paramount when a child is riding in the car. Not locking the doors can be critical in the event of a motor vehicle accident. It is a well known fact that the safest place to be in the event of an accident is in the car and the inability of the driver to insure that all doors are locked is critical to everyone's safety. Having an unlocked door open in a crash increases the probability that an occupant will be ejected from a car thereby increasing injuries and the probability of death; not knowing that all doors are locked results in unnecessary risk.
First the passenger side electric door locks were failing to lock or unlock, within weeks both rear locks started failing! this is a very major safety concern for my wife and daughter. Plus in the drive the other night it didn't lock and someone got in and vandalized the interior and took personal items.
We have a 2005 Nissan Murano that has had the door lock actuators fail repeatedly since we've owned the car. When the locks fail, the doors and rear hatch can not be opened or locked with either the remote fob or the electric controls on the doors. They need to be opened manually by releasing the locking lever by hand. Often when they fail the rear hatch can not be opened because there is not a manual release this is extremely dangerous and is a known problem with this style of door lock actuator. Nissan is aware of this issue and has deemed the repair out of warrantee even though this problem has occurred while under warrantee and ever since. The individual actuator for each door approaches $500 in cost. They've advised to not have this problem, buy a new vehicle which is not acceptable. There are numerous instances of internet complaints on this issue. General motors ignored their problems for years and Nissan is effectively ignoring this problem. The design of the lock actuator itself is defective and needs to be replaced with a better designed component.
1. This is safety hazard and my biggest concern driver seat, left bracket broke. I was told by Nissan dealer this is common problem but not covered by my platinum exended warranty which I purchased at team Nissan in oxnard, CA I was also told the entire seat needs to be replaced to fix this problem. I have seen online that many people have had the same part break. I would hate to think about how this seat might break completely loose in a crash causing the driver to be propelked out the front winshield & possibly killed. Nissan needs to recall & fix this part! 2. Passanger front window goes up & down randomly. . I have to keep the windows locked so it doesnt go down making my car volnerable for theft because more than a few times I came out in the morning to find it down. Also, when trying to put it up, once it closes it then rolls right back down. 3. Electric door locks sometimes dont all lock with key fob. Usually driver doir & sometimes other doors dont lock when using key fob. I have to check all four doors every time I lock the car.
The door lock actuator does not work when the button is pushed from the inside. The lever must be moved manually. This poses a safety issue due to the fact that in an emergency the door stays locked disallowing a quick exit .
Passenger door won't open.
