I believe these fuses are inside the cabin on the Japanese X-Trail. Have a look there.

Re: How to Reset/Reprogram your ECU - Series I & II


When I got my service the other day, I asked the mechanic if he wouldn't mind me having a look at the Consult 2. (mechanic to mechanic bs.)

Some very interesting stuff there. Have we got any budding programmers out there?

Few things I did learn was the ability for storage of data, the self correction programs inherent with the CPU and there is RAM onboard.

Oh and I almost forgot to say, some of the engine parameters are "user defineable"!!!!

Begs the question why we haven't seen more tuners re-programming the main CPU.

Amazing things Consults, you can get a lot of information out of them.

Re: How to Reset/Reprogram your ECU - Series I & II


Nissan have the OBDII series ECU under a tight key at present and this is the case worldwide as far as we know.

There is one guy here in OZ that specializes in stock Nissan ECU tunes and that's "Dr Drift". He normally tunes Silvias and Skylines, and found my question on tuning an X-Trail quite amusing, hehehe.

He did have bad news for me though in that they don't have the capabilities of tuning our ECU yet. Although did say they will keep an eye out for me and keep me updated if this changes in the future. It is only a matter of time, although this also depends on demand.

At this stage the only way to modify your ECU settings is with a piggy back, emoticon

Re: How to Reset/Reprogram your ECU - Series I & II


Hi Noel,

Although I have some programming experience and a familiarity with electronics, I am still very innocent when it comes to the subject of a piggy-back ECU.

Could you give me a brief explanation of the 'what it is', 'what it does' and 'how it is done' or post a link which lets me get some knowledge about it all ?

Re: How to Reset/Reprogram your ECU - Series I & II


OBD-II is an open standard so not sure why there is an issue with tuning companies being able to work with it:

Re: How to Reset/Reprogram your ECU - Series I & II


OBD 11 is a protocol standard, not the program language. The issue from my dealings with a few of the tuners is being able to read the language.

I've been down this track before when I had my Soarer. There are 2 things to consider. One being the ECU language and the way it is coded and the second is often the code is written in Japanese. Double whammo! ECU writers in Japan don't have a tendancy to write program language for us English speaking plebs!

Re: How to Reset/Reprogram your ECU - Series I & II


Hi Noel,

After installing the K&N filter I've noticed the last 5-6 tanks have returned about 11.5 ltr/100km instead of the previous 10.5
I notice in your first post on this you mention resetting the ECU when adding the K&N filter.
Won't the ECU register the different airflow and adjust itself ? It has been about 7 weeks since the filter was fitted.

I am due for a service in a week so I will wait until after then if I need to reset the ECU.

Kev, 7 weeks is more than enough for the ECU to self-adjust, but have you adjusted your driving style as well? emoticon Remember that the K&N will give performance gains and with that your driving habits can be affected emoticon The quick ECU re-set just ensures that you don't have to wait 7 weeks to enjoy the full potential of any performance modification, as it will force the ECU to pick-up the new settings on the spot.

You can ask the dealer to re-set the ECU for you. It is a free service and they should be able to do that with no hassles.
