? There is absolutely no warranty on work or damage resulting from blocked cats after recall. It’s still 100% at owners risk. Plenty of recalled cars with remaps have suffered as do e52 so if you think Nissan has solved the twin stage cat blocked hardware with a software update then great BUT you will be proved wrong eventually... or pass the risk on to a subsequent owner.

@Reuben says the dealer provides a three year warranty. I'm guessing he got it from the same place as @George322 who mentioned his dealer provided a full 3 year warranty in another thread.

Don't be telling me off now - I've had mine done :grinning:;)

That’s a good question Brendan. Maybe it’s the difference in climate or the UK roads in Winter or that the cats start degrading after 60000km.......My dealer told me that they have had no cat issues for any Elgrand they have sold whilst under the 3 year warranty they provide. They’re the main dealer for Elgrand campers by volume here in Scotland. I fully respect other people’s views on this thorny subject but, for me, the jury’s still out.

What is a concern to me is contacting the insurance company to advise of the ‘modification’. One may well say ‘OK, no problem’ but when you may need to shop around at renewal other insurance companies may not share the same view. Anyway if my car blows up it’ll be my own fault if I don’t have the cats done!! All the best.

Lol avoid this dealer at all costs is my advise!! but what the f do I know? I’ve only been helping e51 owners avoid the inevitable for 8 years In that time I lost count of the number of affected car in the mid 30s in 2014 it current runs about one a week on Facebook (our group and the e51 Group combined).

Please don’t spread the ‘it’s not a big problem’ rumour. They only reason it isn’t a big problem is that most owners take the advice.

PS I’ve also lost count of the apologies I’ve had from (usually) ex-owners that argued the same points (Nissan know more that me/ it’s only high mile cars / mine’s had the recall etc) that have apologised to me after their engines blew up.

Just used this guide thanks. Used my phone to scan translate the alarm text and thought it might be useful to add what each line translates to.
Top to bottom:
1 - Oil
2 - Oil filter
3 - Tyre
4 - Other presume this is a spare for gearbox oil/diff oil/sparkplugs/etc

I have warning lights that stay on on my dash board. The battery light and the park brake light stay on the dashboard but if I rev it above 3000 rpm it goes off but come on again below the revs the car did drive for a few miles but now it doesn't want to drive any more. The motor starts and goes into gear but doesn't want to drive

Have you had your Alternator checked for output firstly and have the battery checked too for the same. Check MAFF sensor and clean it and have a good look around the engine bay for any signs of something amiss.

Hi, I think the top one is Oil Filter, the second one is Oil, the third one is Tyre pressure and I'm not sure what the forth one is. You can 'click' into them and reset them. It's just a reminder that you need to change the oil, filter etc every certain number of km (in your picture above 30,000km and 19,000km). The garage should have reset them after they changed them.

I have a 05 Highway Star. It has a MPH conversion chip.
The battery that was on it was a a bit poor and one of the HID lights were flicking and going off.
During this time an intermittent ABS and AFS warning light keeps coming in and then going off. When the lights come on the Speedo and Rev counter drop out and then come back on and then light goes out.
I have today had a new large battery fitted and two new HiD headlights fitted but problem still there.
do you think those codes would be stored and need resetting with a scanner?
ABS appears to work and all the lights work.
many ideas would be great. Someone mentioned before that it may be a faulty MPH converter chip that is causing the electrical problems?

It's certainly a possibility.

This is great, I’ve been trying to work out how to get rid of the pit screen.
folled instructions on a YouTube video but the controls were different on that one.
