Re: Malfunction Indicator (Dashboard Engine Warning Light)


Thanks Jal
 I had a read of most of the posts here & I will look at the cam/crank sensors , I thought the Diagnostic test would have shown up a code for the fault but it wouldn't even flash any kind of code.

Staying on hard probably means you havent actually got it into the diagnostic mode.

10 flashes 4 times (0000) indicate there is no fault logged.

Not necessarily, these sensors can malfunction without throwing out an error code, but the fact that you didn't get any flashes in diagnostic mode means that you have got the timing right for the diagnostic procedure.

Re: Malfunction Indicator (Dashboard Engine Warning Light)


I spent about an hour trying to get the timing right without success.... even tried reseting the light but didn't quite understand what "Diagnostic Mode II" meant. Reset the ECM via fuse removal. The car is still running but as I work away I would like to have it a bit more reliable for the wife.
No Nissan dealership in this town so I might have to trust the local mechanic to check it out.

Re:


Diagnostic Mode II is the the ECU re-set procedure described in the steps in the document itself, once you enter that mode it is called Diagnostic Mode II. You must you a stop watch to get the step with the 7 seconds timing absolutely right, otherwise the procedure won't work for you.

If you still can't get it to work, get to a mechanic that has a diagnostic device.

Re: Malfunction Indicator (Dashboard Engine Warning Light)


For what its worth to you I've just changed the crank and cam position sensors. Fault was the RPM gauge dropping instantly to 0 - as quick as it does when you turn the engine off, and the engine cutting out momentarily and repeatedly. No MIL light but was giving me code P0335 when I did the code check using the accelerator method.
Nissan advised changing both sensors so did.
Cam sensor is very easy

Crank sensor is easy enough if you follow the guides others have posted on the "crank position sensor" thread. Access was easy by:
Removing the cam cover breather pipe at the cam cover
Undoing the intake bellows band at the throttle body
Unclipping the intake cleaner lid and positioning the assembly to the side. No need to remove any electrical pugs
Unbolt the wiring support bracket at the rear of the block to give better arm room (12mm bolt)
The crank sensor bolt (10mm) can be felt by following the wires down to sensor and seen by looking down from the top between the intake manifold and cam cover.
Leave the plug on the sensor to remove and install. Saves losing it if dropped and the plug is easier to disconnect once out of the block.
Took 30 minutes to do both taking my time.

Re: Malfunction Indicator (Dashboard Engine Warning Light)


Hey guys and gals. thanks heaps for the info. just changed my cranksensor and all is good! as mentioned it was pretty tricky to remove the old one. getting the new one back in wasn't much easier. i realised after that i forgot to grease the new sensor before inserting which might be why i had a few issues. anyway, keep up the good work all!
