Re: Crank position sensor


I have a 2005 T30 ST that has done 100,000 Km. I just had the 100,000 Km Service completed 5 days before.

It failed to proceed (stop) the other day. It restarted eventually, so I drive home quickly.

I checked the error code 0335, Crank Position Sensor. Bugger. I rang the RAA to skull drag it to the Nissan dealer (Lakeside Nissan) the next morning Thursday. It was booked in for Friday because they were busy.

About 11 am Thursday I get a phone call, "we've had a quick look and it needs a Crank & Cam Position Sensors, we can fix it today if you give us a go ahead". How much I cautiously asked??? "$245" he says, do it I said.

About 3:30 pm Thursday they let me know it is fixed and ready to be picked up. A day before it is booked in and at a price that was lower than I thought.

I'm happy with my dealer. :-)

Re: Crank position sensor


A month ago, while driving in traffic, the engine of my T30 ST suddenly cut out and stalled. The engine malfunction warning light lit up on the dashboard. At the suggestion of the RACQ mechanic who attended to my breakdown, I took the car back to Moorooka Nissan where I had bought the car new in December 2005.

Through diagnostics, they determined that the crank position sensor was faulty and replaced it for a whopping $275 (i.e. $96 for cost of new sensor and $179 for labour). Unfortunately, the VIN chassis number of my ST is outside the recall range of numbers.

I wrote to Nissan Motor Co. (Australia) Pty Ltd in Dandenong South, Victoria, alerting them of this problem, but to date, not surprisingly, they have chosen to remain silent.

From this forum, it seems apparent that defective crank position sensors are an inherent problem in X-Trails.

Re: Crank position sensor


Yes, but obviously not enough of a problem for Nissan to admit. I wonder what the failure rate was of the ones within the VIN-number range that is within the recall, or if Nissan are going to bother reviewing their recall to extend the affected VIN-numbers. I guess as most of them would now be outside warranty, they wouldn't bother.

It's not something that has "wear and tear" so I imagine any X-Trails that have extended warranty may be able to claim a replacement under warranty?

Re: Crank position sensor


We've just had the same problem yesterday by the symptoms I've read on here. Checked the diagnostics and sure enough the Crank Position Sensor code has come up. Unfortunately we're well out of the recall with our Dec 2005 Exy (62000kms). I rang Nissan in Brisbane today and they quoted $120 for labour plus $97 for the Crank Position Sensor and Camshaft Position Sensor together (they come as a pair). That quote sounds pretty good considering the other prices quoted on here, but I will go and get the sensors now and change them myself as the Exy is our only vehicle and Nissan can only get us in at the end of the week.

I also asked about the longish diagnostics list checking the circuitry, but the maintenance guy just said straight up that they'd just change the sensors and expect that would fix the problem. This isn't really a surprise if the problem is as common as it seems to be.

Basshead/Rich...you said you only changed your Crank Position Sensor and left the Camshaft Position Sensor for later. Nissan said that I need to change them at the same time or I may have further problems. Have you had any dramas saving the Camshaft Position Sensor for later?

Re: Crank position sensor


Right, so I've changed both the sensors anyway which wasn't too difficult (there didn't look to be too much wrong with the sensors that were there to be honest). Now I want to reset the ECM so I turn the MI light off and can see if it comes up again with the same error.

For some reason the accelerator proceedure doesn't seem to happening for me. I can't get the MI light to blink the codes at me at all, and the MI light still illuminates after starting the car (which I assume is because the ECM hasn't been reset and the same error is still there). Going for a drive now and I'll have another go (I have already repeated the process many times) when I get back.

Any ideas?

Would resetting the ECU as per the DIY, also reset the ECM?

Re: Crank position sensor


John,

ECU and ECM are the same thing. If you follow the ECU quick re-set guide, it will clear the MIL light.

Re: Crank position sensor


Didn't need to do the quick ECU reset after all. I had one more crack at the accelerator pattern after a couple of hours and it decided to work (didn't do anything differently, so ECM must just have a mind of its own!). The MIL light cleared and then on the first restart blinked for a couple of seconds. I had to turn the car off for a few minutes when parked, then on the subsequent restart the light was gone and so far there's been no sign of it again - and better still, no sign of the hiccups and stalling! Blinking MIL is supposed to be a misfire of some sort, so hopefully that was just the engine finding its groove again and it stays the way it is now. That'll make me (and esp. wifey) happy as it was a fairly easy and cheap fix emoticon

Re: Crank position sensor


Lost my Crank Position Sensor and Camshaft Position sensor a couple of days ago, 145000kms.

Keema Nissan sure know how to charge like a wounded bull emoticon .

Unfortunately my regular mechanic was on holidays so could not wait.

All good now.

Re: Crank position sensor


Update on my problem of a couple of weeks ago.

As you know from last post I had my sensors changed. all was going well until last Wednesday (exactly 1 week after replacement). I went to go to work and the car would not start. It cranked over but just as I thought it would fire up and let go of the key, nothing. Did this a few times and nothing at all, jut would not kick over.

Getting a little frustrated now, I can tell you. emoticon

Calls up the RACQ and said I don't want to muck around, just send a tow truck and take it back to Nissan where they did the work. They dutifully come along, roll the car out of the garage and up onto the truck and went for a little jolly over to Nissan and drop the car off, keys to the service guy and told him to call me when they find the fault then went and caught the bus to work. Have I told you before that I hate public transport, probably have I think somewhere! emoticon


Anyway, waiting, waiting, waiting and no phone call. By midday I'd just about reached the limit of my patience so called them. Service man came on the line and said there is nothing wrong with it, it started first time, and every time for approximately 12 times over the period of the day. emoticon Go figure!

Caught the bus back to Nissan and spoke to the guy who said he had the mechanic do a clean out of the throttle body and reset something there as they might not have done it last week when they changed the sensors and it could possibly have been flooding itself but evaporated whilst on the way over on the truck, hence why it started for them. No charge, and sent me on my way.

Every morning for the last week, I have approached the car with some trepidation and uncertainty half expecting it to play up again but has been good every morning.

Just when I thought it was safe to get back in the car, dunt dunt dunt dunt dunt dunt duhhhhhh.

Went to go and pick up my son from work last night, you guessed it, wouldn't start - same problem. emoticon emoticon emoticon Jumped in Vicky's car and off I go. Got home, went to the car, strategically placed the sledgehammer in the front so she could see what I'd do if she did not kick over, and tadaaaa! first go.

Now all jokes aside, this is frustrating as all get up. One thing I have enjoyed so much about this car is the absolute reliability I have experienced since I got her but it is a bit shaken at the moment and I hate that feeling every time I go to get in it and wondering whether it will start. Got up early this morning in case she played up again and I'd have time to make the bus but started no problems. Aside from this, the car is running as per usual.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!
