Nissan Murano owners have reported 153 problems related to electrical system (under the electrical system category).
My vehicle was in motion on the highway going about 50mph, when suddenly traffic came to a halt, when I pushed on the accelerator, there seem to be loss power and acceleration which is very dangerous, I had my 3 kids and grandchild in the vehicle with me. As I pushed the accelerator to the floor nothing happened the car wouldn't move, good thing a semi-truck wasn't behind me, we all would have been dead. This is scared me and my family. After waiting about 2 or more minutes the car junked and lunged at a high speed I could have ran into the back of another vehicle. This is beginning to happen more frequent now maybe 3-4 days or more out the week. Stalling and loss of power (no response) while in traffic; is in deed a big factor to have this matter looked into. I've seen numerous complaints regarding the same incident my family and I experienced. There should be a recall regarding this matter. In addition, to that the actuators on both passenger doors (front and back) doesn't work, it has to be locked manually. Also, the hatch lock doesn't lock the handle gets stuck.

"takata recall" NHTSA campaign number: 05v319000 I experienced the exact same issue described in the campaign number above. I called the pischke motors Nissan in lacrosse wisconsin about the problem. They simply told me that there was no recall regarding that issue. They said that my Murano was made after that recall was addressed however, as mentioned, I'am seeing the exact same problem. The vehicle was in a parking lot in motion when it failed.

While exiting a parking space at a low speed (less than 10 mph) the car unexpectedly accelerated to full throttle. Braking would not hold it and my car ran into another vehicle after traveling 5-15 yards, pushing it up on a sidewalk before stopping. Both cars total loss due to bent frame/rails. My front end demolished and radiator pushed into engine but no airbags deployed. After the incident it was discovered that my accelerator pedal had snapped off.

While driving the power locks, windows, seat adjuster, alarm and lift gate stopped working. No power to the main window/lock switch on the drivers side.
My back driver side door would not unlock or lock this morning. It was working fine yesterday afternoon. I tried to unlock from the inside and appears that the lock button is not working as it should. I cannot open the door at all from outside or inside. I only use the key itself and unlock or lock doors with the panel buttons.
All occurrences took place when vehicle was stationary. I bought the vehicle less than two weeks ago, used, from the previous owner who had it for nine years. She supposedly kept up with all the maintenance and appears to have taken real good care of it. Everything was fine until about three days ago when on a couple of occasions I parked and locked the vehicle and came back hours later to discover the front windows were down about 3 inches. . . Weird. So when I got to work this morning I engaged the window lock button. Then this afternoon I came out after work to discover the windows were both all the way down. I drove home and parked in the garage and rolled up the windows and left the key in the console. An hour later, got ready to leave and the windows were back down, and doors were locked. I reached in and unlocked the door, and when I opened it the alarm went off! OH, forgot to mention that the key fob doesn't work, in spite of replacing the battery this week, so the panic button doesn't work. Got in and started the engine and the alarm is still going off!! put it into gear and back into park and it's still going off. Got out and headed into the house (keys in hand this time) and the alarm randomly stopped. . . Hmm. Okay, so I went back around and opened the door (thinking I could leave now) and the alarm started sounding again. . . What the heck!.
My 2004 Murano had a lot of stalling and stopping, problems with accelerating the car. It stop on multiple occasions. Fluid leaking, from engine and fuel tank, and steering column. Power steering is rigid,and locks, and car stops when turning. The windows went up and down uncontrollable. Power control panel , did not function. Nissan insisted that vehicle is old. I think the car is possessed. All of theses things occurred while I was in motion driving the car on highway, the roads, stationery, and especially turning, and trying to accelerate the car, and it would then completely turn off, Nissan refuses to acknowledge any thing is wrong. They stated what do you expect after buying a car this old. I just want to make sure my car is safe by your standards not theirs. After receiving my car from Nissan it was even worse, I brought the same issues to them after paying $5200 of what they said were repairs. Thanks.
While driving the automobile made a low buzzing sound and immediately stopped moving. All power was lost. I was not able to steer the automobile, the dashboard lights and radio still on and working. I engaged the accelerator once and the auto accelerated and all power was lost again, this time completely. I had it towed to my regular Nissan dealership for diagnosis and repair. Diagnosis: battery needs to be replaced. The battery was replaced and I drove the car home and to work the next day. While on my way from work, the exact problem occurred again. I had it towed to autonation Nissan again and as I type this complaint the dealership is trying to arrive at the proper diagnosis. I am all of a sudden in fear for my life, had I been on the expressway (I-95, sr-826, FL turnpike, etc. I could have been killed with these two sudden stops if I had been rear-ended. I am the only driver of this automobile. It is in otherwise excellent condition. I have never had this problem before. Only constant issues with "tire sensors" even though I have had them replaced.
All 4 of my door lock actuators have gone out at the same time.
Takata recall, airbag on passager side indcator light on, tire light and tire slow leak.
When locking door with remote control,the drivers door does not lock.
I was driving out of my driveway, when the car stalled and hesitated. I saw the battery light and the brake light come on, so I drove the car slowly down the street in front of my apartment, and parked it there. I later read that this was common on Nissan Muranos, model years 2003 through 2007, and a recall campaign, 05v319000 was started.
I am the original owner of my 5 year old car. It has low mileage and has been regularly maintained. My fuel gauge and mile range indicator are no longer accurate or in sync. They both fluctuate erratically. I can leave my driveway and go to the end of my street (9 houses) and lose 20 miles according to the indicator. On the other hand, I have driven 125 miles and end up with more gas than when I started. It has been taken to the dealership 3x where they have changed sensors etc. To fix this. I contacted Nissan America who had one of their engineers contact the dealership. Nissan's final decision is that it is a characteristic of the car and they would do nothing more. I have many concerns about this decision. It isn't easy estimating what I have in my tank when both gauges are incorrect. It is stressful and dangerous especially when taking longer trips. I am a single woman and am in my car, driving alone, most of the time. What if I am in the middle of traffic and because of the misreadings, I run out of gas? what does this do to the re-sale value of my $35,000. 00 car? if this is a characteristic of my car, why wasn't I told about it when I bought it? this is more of a flaw than a characteristic. How many other Nissan owners out there with this same problem? I find Nissan"s final decision unacceptable and that is why I am contacting you. I'd like to thank you in advance for your time and consideration concerning this matter.
