Nissan Complaint - IPDM Intelligent Power Distribution Module
Be careful when buying a Nissan! I first purchased a Nissan Exterra and when the dealership could not get the ABS system to keep working, they traded me for a new 2005 Nissan Frontier LE.
Yesterday the truck cut out leaving me stranded on the freeway several times, the last time with a diesel right behind me.
I was able to restart and barely got to the closest repair location from there. After testing all afternoon yesterday and today, they finally figured out it was the IPDM.
The part is not available anywhere, due to so many consumers needing it. Japan can not keep up with orders and it could be as much as a month to get the part- and the truck does not run without it! There should be compensation for this inconvenience as well as a recall due to the many of us who are stuck with no vehicle to drive due to the faulty design on the system.
I am stuck now, no car, little money and nothing anyone seems able to do. Nissan Corp representative simply stated "what can I tell you, it is what it is." Awesome customer service. Any suggestions for me? This could very well cost me my job as I am in outside sales in an area with very little work available. Wonderful.
