DIY Error Code T30 2001


Had starting issue one day and the check engine light stayed on.

I've been following the ecu error code procedure by putting the key on after 3 secs then press go pedal 5 times then wait 7 secs the press and hold accelerator pedal for 10 secs then the light should flash but it doesn't.

So after researching the crank and cam sensor is most likely the fault so gambled and bought these.

Installation was no issue

Tried resetting the ecu by removing the 3 fuses and waiting for a few minutes. But the check engine light still on.

I was using a timer as well to be accurate with the ecu error codes but it won't flash.

Any idea peeps?

Re:


The check engine light which is a result of the faulty sensors can only be re-set using Consult II, so you need to take the car to a mechanic that has one or take it to any Nissan dealer and they will re-set it for you while you wait. The quick ECU re-set won't do it.

Re:


Negative battery terminal off for 24 hrs will also reset the ECU learnt codes according to manual.

I've attached a pic from the service manual that should be a little clearer - if you read the section on "Resetting" you will see how to do it once you put it in diagnostic mode by holding in the accel for 10 sec. Best to use a stop watch to do it - if you get it wrong just put the ignition back to Off and then try again. Takes a couple of goes.

Re:


I recently had to change cam and crank sensors.

tried all the listed methods to get my exy to spit out codes - to no avail.

Generic hand held can bus reader would clear codes but told me nothing was wrong (despite engine light on)

ended up getting nissan to read it at a cost of about $70

is there some fancy method for the series 2?

Re:


The same method is used for all models but you need to get the timing right to the second, so use a stop watch.

As for Nissan reading the code for $70, that's a major rip-off. They should do that free of charge, as the charge to have the error code re-set is no more than $15 bucks!

Any mechanic with a diagnostic device can read the error code for you, it doesn't have to be a Nissan dealer.

Re:


Im in a semi-rural area, with only one auto-elec in town.
He doesn't have a reader that would read the nissan specific codes.

I have a can bus interface for my laptop, and that wouldn't give me the codes either.

Though I had it set to ISO1914.

I agree rip off, but time was in short supply, so I just had to suck it up.

I've tried the stopwatch trick, to no avail.
I might have a look around youtube and see what I can find.

Re:


These steps may be a bit clearer:

In car ECM Diagnostics/ECM Reset procedure:
1) Sit in the driver's seat.
2) Turn the ignition key to the ON position and wait three seconds. (Do not start the car.)
3) Fully depress and release the accelerator pedal five times in less than five seconds.
4) Wait exactly seven seconds. Fully depress the accelerator pedal for ten seconds until
the MIL (SES) light flashes.
5) Release the accelerator pedal and start counting flashes to obtain the four-digit trouble
code.
Long flashes (0.6 seconds) indicate the first digit of the code; count the blinks one
through nine and write down the first digit. (Ten blinks indicates a zero.)
The next three digits follow in turn in the same fashion except with faster blinks (0.3
second) and a 1.0-second pause between digits.
The ECM code repeats intself until you turn the ignition key to the OFF position, at
which point the ECM resets itself to standard get-in-and-drive-the-car mode.
You can look up the trouble codes in the ESM/FSM; there's a bunch of them. In the ESM,
refer to page EC-639.
Additionally, if you get four blinks of ten (0000), the ECM is indicating no malfunction.
You can clear the code (and the annoying MIL) by holding down the accelerator pedal
for more than 10 seconds while in Diagnostic Test Mode II. When you release the pedal,
the ECM erases the trouble code(s).

They're part of a detailed instructions and error codes list found on our website HERE

Re: DIY Error Code T30 2001


point of clarification - is that wait exactly 7 seconds after last pedal push - or 5 seconds time?

Re:


You need to fully depress the accelerator pedal 5 times within the 5 seconds period, but yuou need to wait EXACTLY 7 seconds after the last pedal push and then fully push the pedal in for 10 seconds. This is where you need a stop watch to get the 7 seconds timing right.
