Using a higher octane fuel should not have caused the SES light to turn on. The only fill-up-related thing I can think of which would cause the SES to turn on is if there is a bad batch of fuel (something like water). In such a scenario, the SES will be triggered due to the engine knocking. This would be typified by engine sputtering, and is usually ...

No negative consequence. Some manufacturers do this because the A/C unit also acts as a dehumidifier so running the A/C helps dry out the air in humid climates. In some areas, at some times of year, you run the A/C while running the air with a temperature set somewhere in the middle, instead of full-cold. This is to prevent window-fogging. This is common ...

Mixing octanes in an upward-direction is fine. But, not completely tightening the gas cap could cause that. If you want to know exactly why the CEL came on, just take the vehicle to a retail car-parts store, such as Autozone or NAPA. Most of them will pull trouble codes for free. (You mentioned gas cap above, but your wording in that sentence is ...

Your best bet is to back probe the yellow wire to see if it's the one you need. I have used a needle attached to an alligator clip on a wire as my probe mechanism. Works pretty slick without damaging anything. Just set the emergency brake before you do anything.

First off, you don't specify if your vehicle currently has power locks or not. If it does, you don't need a kit like you listed. Something equivalent to the Viper 211HV would be enough. Since you mention a kit with actuators included and the Versa is certainly a common car to come without power locks, we'll look more into specifics for adding actuators. To ...

Your statement that "no air comes out at all" to me indicates that the blower/fan is not working. This could be a problem with the blower switch/speed control, the blower motor, the associated wiring, or a fuse which protects all of the previous. I would remove the blower (often accessible from the engine compartment, on or near the firewall) and test it ...
