2003 Nissan Micra S 1.2 from UK and Ireland
Engine management light is on.
Air bag light is flashing.
Flat battery every 3 days (new battery).
The car will not start for 5 minutes after stalling, or turning the engine off.
Had a new cam sensor.
Had a new crank sensor.
Why are the sensor lights on?
Why is battery completely flat after 3 days?
Why won't the car start after turning the engine off or stalling for 5 minutes?
I believe the manufacturer changed in 2003, from Nissan to Renault?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Based on what you said, I have made a massive loss on this Micra. Bought it for 1650, then done 1 grand work on it over the year that I had it for. The engine cuts off, making it very dangerous. Changed the throttle body plus the battery, and fan belts, and that did not make a change, plus a full engine service. Has not made a difference. At the end, found out it was the timing chain. Sold it off for just under £500.
If I were you or anyone with this model, get it sold off ASAP. It's not worth a penny. It's not even a Japanese car. There's a Renault engine under the bonnet.
