Brad ASKED THE GUIDE

Nissan Qashqai 2018: Why are certain functions randomly shutting down?

My daughters new Nissan Qashqai has been going into a shipping mode and shutting down certain functions like door locking, cameras, brake warnings, but she can still start and drive it. It has been back to the Nissan dealer too many times in the 10 months since buying it new. No problem can be found. They have a new baby and wanted something new and safe, but it's really scaring her. Any advice would be welcome.

 

It sounds like it is going into ‘limp home’ mode, which cuts the performance of the car but still lets you drive it at a much reduced pace to get it fixed. But it appears to happen at random, which makes it hard for mechanics to trace and fix. It is most likely a problem with the electronics, so if it continues to occur I would suggest you sit down with the dealer and work out a plan of action to hopefully find the cause and fix it.
