Thank you for this. I've sent my dealer an email requesting he order the parts so when I get home, (I'm in China) I can have the work done!

Thanks again!! Love this forum.

I would like to applaud the efforts of those who have been hammering Nissan about this. I feel certain I speak for many others when I says "Thanks, y'all!".

I'm glad to see this got stickied. Waiting with bated breath for an official announcement from Nissan.

Can/will someone correct the spelling in the title of this thread? Camping -> Campaign.

Now everyone, put your steering lock fuse back in, and have Nissan fix it
By fix it you mean have them replace a faulty steering lock with another faulty lock? No thanks, I'll leave my lock disengaged and not worry about dealing with the dealershit.

Maybe they have fixed the problem with the latest version of the SLU, but I have serious doubts. If the "fix" is just replacing the SLU, I'll put my fuse back in, get the latest and greatest SLU, and then pull the fuse again.

I'm not going to pretend to grok the system, but it looks to me like the BCM should be reflashed to ignore the SLU. Then the SLU can be removed completely.

What's the point of putting the fuse back in to take it to the dealer, have them mess around with it, then pull the fuse back out. Aren't you in the same exact spot you were before, only difference is you had the dealer mess with the car? Only way I'm taking my car to the dealer is if the fix is completely removing the SLU. Although I cut the wire on mine, not sure if that will be a issue once they start messing with the SLU?

I haven't checked, but assume my '09 has one of the earlier revisions that is almost certain to fail. There is a chance that they now have a revision that will last at least a little longer than the one I have. I will pull the fuse again because I have no use for the steering lock - I would have eventually pulled the fuse just to shut the thing up. When I sell the car, I can tell the buyer it has the latest-and-greatest SLU installed. If they want to re-enable it, I'll put the fuse in for them.

With the cut wire, they may give you the same argument you just gave me: What's the point?
