Juke Teckna Keyless - Won't Start
First time posting so please be kind if I inadvertently breach any protocols.
I have owned a Nissan Juke Tekna DIG-T CVT for 2 years, trouble free motoring, and lots fun if you put it in sport mode.
4 weeks ago it just wouldn't start. Its a push button start , and we tried both key fobs and changed the batteries in the fobs, but no joy.
Breakdown recovery checked the cars main battery which was fine, and tried a "reset" by disconnecting the battery temporarily, but car still wouldn't start. All the dash lights come on, and the radio works etc, just no engine !
I had it taken to the "local" Nissan dealer, which is over 1 hour away as we are quite rural here, and asked them to diagnose the fault.
However, they have had it for 4 weeks, and cannot diagnose the fault. They have sent the data to Nissan Technical support, and they think it is either Body Control Module or the main Electronic Control Module. They say they can get the starter motor to turn the engine over, but it will not start.The dealership say they have not seen this type of fault before.
They have given me an estimated cost £2700 to swap both modules , but no guarantee that this will fix the fault, so could cost more.
I have asked Nissan customer services to assist , and they have offered a 25% good will gesture towards the total cost, but as Nissan Technical cannot identify the fault, who knows how much it will cost to fix.
Has anyone had this type of fault before. From searching other online forums I am aware there is a brake unit fault, which can cause the juke CVT to not start, but the garage say this has been checked and is fine.
All advice most welcome.
Thanks to all.
