I am very frustrated with Nissan as they fail to address there failure to make quality headlights, and that there headlights make for a huge safety concern. Replacing bulbs does not fix the issue nor does warranty cover the cost. They need to open a recall and replace the headlight assembly as soon as possible. I also live in a rural area where there is limited to no street lighting. The vehicle was repaired however, the failure persisted. It has 82K miles on it.
I moved to the passenger-side headlight and a beam illuminated on my shirt. This is not a unique problem on my Altima, it is a major problem on most of the 2013, 2014, 2015, etc. I complained to my dealer, but they say there is no fix for it. My headlights do not project far or wide. When I first bought the car brand new the headlights seemed fine, but over time I noticed they were getting dim, and now I can hardly tell the low beams are even on, the high beams seem to work just fine.
By accepting to pay part is an admission of guilt on Nissan's part. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, who replaced the seat sensor and on another occasion the software was reset however, the failure persisted. If I drive with high beams other cars flash me to lower the light because I blind them with the high beams. I also did some online searches and find that other Altima owners are experiencing the same problem. I spoke with someone at Nissan dealership and they know this is common problem but they are not doing anything to fix it. The very day I took the car home I was leaving a family member's home and it was noticed the headlights were extremely dim.
The failure mileage was 11,092. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The Nissan dealer's mechanic coral springs Nissan 954-753-1700 has admitted this is a common issue in these type of vehicles. Both sets of bulbs I got same result insuffiecient lighting on low beam. When the drivers-side lamp was replaced, I was standing in front of the headlight and noticed no beam was illuminating on my shirt at all.
The approximate failure mileage was 300 and the current mileage was 62,096. The manufacturer was also contacted and was unable to provide assistance. It always says off, even when there's a passenger. The approximate failure mileage was 2,700. In addition, other unknown repairs were performed, but the failure recurred. I have less then 100000 miles.
The contact stated that while parked, the air bag warning light illuminated. Very unsafe to drive at night. I had this car brand new and it's well taken care of. This has become worse over time. After the vehicle was started, the passenger side air bag off warning light illuminated while the seat was occupied. The vehicle was taken to the dealer.
How many more people will need to be put in harms ways before a recall is made to repair this apparent issue? I replaced the bulb, but after replacing the bulb it still very dim on driver side headlight. Changing the bulb doesn't help. Lights are dim all the time, not related to idle or other functions. There is no other known issue with the headlights. . The failure mileage was 100. So what do I do, not drive my car at night? I have had the Nissan dealership in my local area new port richey put in the exact bulbs car came with from factory same issue poor lighting on low beam.
This is excessive since this has been a Nissan production problem on the Altima for a number of years,. Couldn't move car because steering locked plus no power. From what I've seen today, this is a huge and widespread problem. Had Nissan informed me of this defect, I would not have wasted my time and money. The dealer replaced the air bag sensor module and the computer was also replaced; however, the failure was not corrected.
It's like driving with them off. A safety concern that Nissan should be recalling to replace the defective headlights. But the customer service agent at crest Nissan of frisco told me that there is nothing wrong with it, this light is supposed to stay on unless the passenger seat is occupied by an adult. Use of the 2014 Nissan Altima replacement bulb size information is at your own risk. The headlight lenses are not yellowed or fogged over, and the headlight bulbs are brand new high-quality headlight lamps.
