Hi
I've owned my nv200 for under 5 weeks on a 2012 plate
Just had bad new from local nissan dealership. Went in for abs light coming on Intermittently which has been reported as water ingress into the ecu which has corroded. This requires a new wiring harness and new ecu it's just out of main warranty and the cared 4 nissan extended warranty won't cover this !!!
Dealership have logged a good will claim with nissan just waiting to hear what they will Contribute to the repair which has been quoted circa £3500.
Anybody else had similar issues
Will update tomorrow if j hear back from nissan
Thanks
Phil

Where is the ECU located? Right side of the engine behind the battery?

I had the same issue with water leaking onto the big black box(it's got a harness running out of it) behind the battery. I brought it in to have it checked out and the dealer said it's completely normal. These vans are cheaply built.

Not sure to be honest not had it long, if they won't cover it il have to go to local garage where labour is cheaper or look at having a bash myself
I know the vivaro, primastar and traffic all suffer from this issue but heard nothing of the nv200

Good luck!
Is it obvious that that is the fault? I'd expect the ECU and loom entry to be watertight(!)
If dealer can't do it, worth a shout to Nissan UK directly - and argue your case? I'd be reluctant to spend £3.5k on any fix.
(TBH - one of the reasons I ordered new was the now 5yr warrantee).
I'd also be looking at trading standards, not fit for purpose etc as a dealer MUST cover all fixes in a certain timeframe. Quick google shows http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice/car-buyers-guide/cbg_legalrights.html - this came in only October last year and IS IN ADDITION TO any extra warrantee. Not many people know this....


Note the text:-
Faults, repairs and refunds

Under the new act, if a fault renders the product not of satisfactory quality, not fit for purpose or not as described, then the buyer is entitled to reject it within the first 30 days.
Between 30 days and 6 months

If a fault comes to light after 30 days but before 6 months have passed then you are entitled to a repair, replacement or refund. It is assumed in law that the fault was present at the time of purchase unless the seller can prove otherwise. During this period, unless you have agreed otherwise, the seller (dealer) has only one opportunity to repair (or replace) the faulty vehicle after which, if they fail to repair it, you are entitled to a refund.
In the event of a refund following a failed attempt at repair during the first six months the seller is permitted to make a 'reasonable' adjustment to the amount refunded to take account of the use that you have had of the vehicle since you bought it.




Looms can be repaired (normally) by an auto electrical - how badly damaged can it be?. ECU may need replacing - but thats £100s usually. May need coding for immobiliser/fuel pump/injectors (no idea on these vans). But doubt a new loom is needed..... Main Dealers do tend to give a solution rather than a fix (Ford told me I needed a new intercooler and MAP sensor as the MAP sensor is in the intercooler. However, MAP sensor can be unscrewed and replaced! But they never just sell the sensor (bought one elsewhere). The actual issue I had was not at all related to their diagnostics either - but that's another story)


Did water get in by road spray or by rain?


Anyway - hope the above helps

Hi sorry forgot to post the outcome.
After the dealer logging a good will claim with nissan they agreed to pay 75% of parts only still leaving a bill.of around £1000 !! £400 parts and 600 labour (for what was described as a days work). I then logged a case with customer service who kindly phoned the nissan dealership where I bought it from to ask for a contribution however this was to no avail. They were of the opinion that as I has bought from a main nissan dealer with extended warranty and owned the van for only 5.weeks I shouldnt be out mod pocket and paid the rest !! I was so relieved a lucky escape and a big thumbs up for nissan

Water ingress

Is the cover on or any water proofing missing from the area. I have a 2015 and see that there really is nothing to keep water out of the area
