Hi there. I have a same problem with my car after a recall update. Engine management light has come on and car went into limp mode 1 week after the update. The car lost a lot of power and cannot accelerate. I took it to the dealer and they were saying that the air flow intake tube was split and they were saying that this is problem has norhing to do with the system update. This is really annoying because the car was running perfectly prior the update. I feel like this dealer is trying to rip me off. They don't want to take the responsibility about this fault.

Hi everyone. I had a cal from the dealer just now and said that it will cost me £270 to get it repaired. He said that the air flow intake pipe was split and it will cost me that amount to get it fix. I jave mentioned to him about people complaining regarding EMS update that causes their cars to have multiple problems afterwards and again they don't want to take the liability. They were saying that what they did was just upfrading the software and did not touched any mechanical parts of the car. Has anyone here raised a complaint to Nissan dealer regarding this? I might do the same. Thank you guys.

I'm not normally one to defend dealers, but the EMS recall really is just a software update, they probably didn't even open your bonnet.  So could well be coincidence.

Most of that £270 will be labour costs - you can probably find the pipe you need online and could just be as simple as a couple of jubilee clips to replace it yourself.

Or in the short term, find the split and if it's not too bad, superglue it up and wrap extra strong duct tape around it a few times, probably will hold.

Yes, raise the issue, it is not coincidence and they should be liable. We were told to see what happens after 40 days, but we still get moments of weak uptake, especially from 2nd to 3rd.

I'm struggling to understand how a software update can cause a pipe to split. Have you had a hardware problem too?

Software updates can affect how an engine is managed to deliver a particular level of performance.  If it affects air intake or exhaust pressures, then it could cause subsequent failures.

Hello. I am another post software update sufferer. Straight after a recall update the engine was turning over slowly and had a very throaty, noisy rattle. As it was not affecting performance I planned to wait until the annual service due in a few weeks. But a few days later the engine starting juddering and losing power between 40 and 50mph. After doing this 3 or 4 times I booked it in with the dealer. I have been told that none of these issues relate to the update (and it was bascially implied that I was lying when I said the engine noise and rattle on ignition started immediately after the update!) and that it is a complete coincidence that these problems started after the update and that their computer diagnostics are now showing that the glow plugs are faulty and need replacing which will cost just under £200 to fit. Model is J10 1.5 dci 2010 diesel with 44,000 miles on clock.
Does anyone know if new glow plugs will actually fix the problem? (Some posts here suggest the issues will eventually settle down)

Hello. I am unfortunately suffering the post recall blues too. Car went in for 2nd recall on this last month I think. Since then car has sounded like a bag of hammers, and generally runs worse than it had previously. The wife drives the car mainly and she's explained that it will start to stutter around 70mph. It has happened with me very recently where it feels like it has hit the speed limiter and loses power. The engine light comes on and the yellow lights on the right come on (ecs/ems?). These can't be turned off unless switching ignition off and back on. Yesterday the car got stuck in limp home after about 5-10 mins of driving, wouldn't go over 20mph. Tried keeping accelerator flat to floor and would hover up to 2k revs and back down. Getting it booked into the stealers asap but I'm expecting a big bill. Have ran it on an error code reader and all sorts has come up. 2 x Current Faults: B00AA Body and P0103 Powertrain (Mass or Volume Air flow circuit high output. 5 x Pending Faults: B2AAA Body, P0002 Powertrain, P0202 Powertrain Injector Circuit - Cylinder 2, P0380 Powertrain Glowplug/Heater Circuit "A"n P1089 Powertrain. Revved car this morning, got to 3k revs then dies to 2k and hovers below that. Unplugged the MAF sensor, engine light came on, still wouldn't rev. Plugged back in, car revved fine for about 20 seconds then started playing up again. Also I've never noticed until now theres a funny clicking sound when turning engine off the engine. I've videoed it if there's a way to upload it!

Update: couldn't get it into Nissan dealership until Thursday so took it to an indy garage, found 18 fault codes. They're keeping the car tomorrow to find out what it is.

If anyone can assist or knows what it could be, this is what happens:
2010 Qashqai+2 1.5 diesel

Used to act like had hit speed limiter when put foot down, usually around 70mph. Orange engine light come on, 2 orange lights on right of dash (car skidding symbols) come on. Red engine light comes on. Sometimes no indicators or lights will work when this happens, also speed limiter and cruise control won't do anything (blank screen).

Now it won't rev past 3k revs, drops to just under 2k and hovers. Struggles to pull away, won't get over 20mph unless downhill with the wind behind it. Can hear turbo spinning so see not turbo. Fault codes I get on obd reader suggest glow plug, heater matrix etc. I think it's electrical fault personally!

Any ideas?

Hi all, I’m a newbie, I purchased my qashqai +2 1.5 n-tec 2011 about a month ago, really loved the way it drived. I used to be in the trade a few years back so have a good knowledge technically. Now I contacted Nissan to try and find out if the vehicle had any outstanding recalls/ to see if it had the cambelt recall. I was told that it required the ECM reprogram recall. So took it in yesterday to Bristol street motors Derby. After collecting it today I immediately experienced an extremely noisy engine, poor power, heavy jerking at slower speeds and in my opinion a dangerous to drive vehicle. I called Bristol street motors as soon as I got home. At first I was told that this was only a software reprogram and shouldn’t of caused this trouble. I was then told that because the ECM has been reprogrammed then all the parameters have been reset and to drive it a couple of days for it to rectify itself. The second time I used it, on the way to work I experienced in my a dangerous flat spot/ erratic drive. I also have noticed that the cruise control/ speed limiter has also stopped working. So I called the garage up again, to be told that this recall doesn’t have anything to do with the cruise control. I have booked it in for Friday for them to take a look at it...so for the next two days, it looks like I’m going to have to use the Honda to go to work in.
Has anyone had any joy from this situation we have been conned into?

Thanks MK
