2012 Nissan Quest LE: Exhaust Gas Detection Sensor

January 23, 2012

 2012 Nissan Quest LE

While I'm at it, I might as well point out that the Quest is also equipped with an exhaust gas detection sensor which can sniff out "industry odors such as pulp or chemicals, and exhaust gas such as gasoline or diesel," according to the owner's manual. When the system senses such stinks it automatically switches from outside air circulation to recirculation.

It works when the "Auto recirculation" button is pressed, the external temperature is above freezing and the air flow control is not in the defroster mode. I'm yet to see it in action for myself, but I've got a few ideas for its improvement which I'll share tomorrow morning.
