  1. Hopefully the other lesson learned here was don't leave critical shit like that to the last day.
  2. Amen to that. Precisely why I bought my own Consult knock-off scan tool and software. Besides which, I only really trust myself anyway.
  3. No doubt about it, they got you good. I have the same model as you and it has never, ever need the occasional reset for the windows. I've had mine for just over five years and have only performed the reset three times because of disconnecting the battery working on stuff. I would be checking to see what the status is of the passenger door switch when you actuate the driver's door switch. If they're both grounding, that means someone's possibly mucked about with the wiring and got those two door switches working in parallel. I'd be taking a good look at the BCM and its loom for any evidence of tampering/modification. Anyway, that's a side note. Work through this dash light problem first and then progress to the windows. Good luck!
  4. That ought to work for you, unless your ECU has been flashed with the UpRev Osiris. In which case, it either needs the OEM code flashed back to it or the UpRev guys need to get a data dump of your ECU, correct the bug which causes that light to come up and then provide you with the modified code accordingly. Good luck.
  5. Actually, it's electronically where you're going to run into the majority of problems. If you're hoping to continue using all the other features you're currently enjoying on your display, such as the camera(s), maintenance screens, Bluetooth (phone and audio screens), then the integration of the Android kit becomes questionable. I have no interest in the device you're referring to, so forgive me for not caring enough to do the research myself but just be aware that the only thing you'll be able to take out without affecting your AC and even your instrument cluster, will be the LCD touchscreen currently in there. The headunit sitting directly behind the button panel (double-DIN size) needs to remain intact and in service. If the Android kit can take over all major duties, including the bluetooth phone connectivity, then you may have a reasonable solution on your hands. All that said, I don't trust Chinese engineering. They're clever at reverse engineering but not so clever at forward engineering.
  6. Your determination to go with the PS4S is well-founded. I got them for the fronts because of the OEM size and they're worth every cent. They certainly outgrip my PS3 tyres in the rear.
  7. The beeper module is in the engine bay. You could try disconnecting it but that may potentially disable other stuff too, or at least raise a warning on your dash. Nothing harmful but try unplugging it and see.
  8. There are two bolts behind the door handle as well. You need to unclip the plastic trim panel off the door handle to reveal them.
  9. Shouldn't you have asked these questions before you bought your car?
  10. I don't really think there is a way. I've only ever used my phone purely for the handsfree connection and it does occasionally drop out but only for about ten seconds. Never happens during a call though, so it could well be that it's a power-saving feature in Android that kicks in and then the handsfree kit wakes it up again. You would think that while streaming music from your phone to the vehicle, the phone would stay awake at all times but I suppose something odd might be at play there. One thing you could try is preventing the phone from falling asleep on you by going into your phone's Settings -> Developer Options -> Stay Awake (enabled) and plugging it into a USB charger. That way, the phone will never sleep while it's charging and therefore, not put anything else to sleep, such as your Bluetooth connection. It's only a theory but doing this will either prove or disprove it.
  11. Some of us would disagree and argue that it's not about getting to 180 from the moment one takes off at the lights.
  12. Do it the right way. Either ECUtek or Cipher Osiris to reflash the ECU.
  13. No idea how you're achieving that, given your Panasonic unit is a digital TV tuner (DVB-T), not radio (DAB, let alone even analogue). Short answer, I doubt you'll get anything else out of it, let alone anything at all.
  14. Bureaucracy might suggest importing those Michelins would not be legal because they aren't stamped by an Australian authority. However, the tyre definitely exceeds Australian standards.
  15. I'm not familiar with other sizes because I figure that Nissan have gone to reasonable lengths to determine the appropriate sizes for our tyres on what is a pretty serious performance vehicle. It's not a supercar but nevertheless, it's been built to do what it does very well as it is.
