Lets try that again, stupid fat fingers!!!


I'm a new owner of an Apr 08 1.4 Acenta.

My question is should the steering wheel controls light up when the lights are on?

So the general consensus is they don't then.

The reasons I asked as a new owner was that I had a 61 Plate N-Tec 1.5dci as a courtesy car and that did.

My next question is could I buy a second hand sat nav head unit out of another Note and fit it into mine as a straight swap?

It seems Nissan thought I would be a good idea to include a Light on the steering controls, maybe they got loads of complaints about it? So why not put the light on the face lift 09 models onwards!

I suspect that you could buy a sat nav unit and replace it, as long as the space fits it?Edited by: jerry3167

yes you can add a connect system but it requires a patch lead if your swapping from the ols style 6cd unit , also you will need a usb lead and port and a gps aerial , if you buy a second hand connect they usually come with gps aerial

Does anyone have a light that illuminates the ign. keyhole? I have real difficulty finding mine in the dark as the interior light doesn't shine there. (Another DF, as far as I'm concerned.) I thought of fitting a l.e.d. but was warned that the monitoring systems on modern cars are very sensitive. (Perhaps they need some E45 on them.) Any advice, folks?

you can retro fit the connect it depends on what plugs you have in your car
i have fitted 6 connects now and made up 20 plus leads and have the correct aerial adapters for the connect

I have all the info on the retro fit inc pinouts and leads/plugs suitable for the fit, the plugs on there own are hard to souce unless you need 1000 of them at a time

post up or pm me if you need any more help

ps. 59 tekna and the controls light up orangeFYI there surface mount leds i have done one set of door switches so far what where a bit of a pain

Mine is 57 plate Accenta R, no steering wheel function lights, it's a bit of a pain as you don't know what you are pressing these dark nights lol

It's not that easy to read them with the lights
unless you have your reading glasses on
