My Mistake!!

This fella found it in a Nissan Frontier, but it's my mistake.

Not the PNP, it's the stop lamp switch. Claims no codes, etc. Broken tail lamp.
Some (but not all) of the conventional tranny TCM's do the same thing. That guy's Frontier is evidently one of them.

Re: 2012 Pathfinder losing power under acceleration: V6

It's not the PNP, it's that the TCM's on all CVT Nissans look at the brake lamps and positively refuse to accelerate if they think the brakes are applied. The Versa bubble cars, which are infamous for crappy taillamps, actually throw a code over it if the reverse and brake circuits get crossed by mo...

Re: Hello from a new R51 owner

Welcome!

Love the username, I'm a Jersey boy that wound up in Arkansas myself. I'm officially a "damn Yankee" and not "just a Yankee", I'm never going home. The lack of salt is the least of it.

Re: J-48761 Timing Chain and Tensioner Work Coming

That sounds entirely possible. For years Nissan had a relationship with Kent Moore for special tools of all sorts, but then KM got bought up by SPX and SPX got bought up by Bosch, and who knows who makes anything anymore. The only guys I know about who are still independent are Midtronics, they make...

Hmmm, or come to think of it, maybe he already banned them....

Oddly, I could not register an account - as both website links have a bug in it - in ordering anything to Ontario, Canada. (every US State and every other Canadian province was there)

Re: J-48761 Timing Chain and Tensioner Work Coming

Zip ties have always been my best friends when doing timing chains on any vehicle. Strung around both sides of the chains and pulled tight, nothing can move or jump. Plus it pulls everything out of the way for working with the tensioners. The one thing you positively need to remember is pulling the ...

Re: Odometer Display Disappeared

I don't recall ever having a Pathy cluster apart, but most of those LCD displays are connected to the mainboard with either ZIF connectors or soldered pins. When they fail, it's usually a problem with the ZIF being dirty or unseated in the former case, or a broken solder joint which can be fixed by ...

Re: Passenger Airbag Warning Light on or off?

ASIST only shows two recalls on the '06's, the Crash Zone sensor and the driver's bag emblem, and neither one affected operation of the PABI. The R51's never got the P7318 recall which affected the Bag Brain, that was reserved to Titan-Frontier-Xterra. So there's really nothing you could have undone...

Any stunt driver can tell you that even a '69 DeVille will handle with 80 psi in the tires. :P

Re: Constant gear hunting. What gear am I in?

Chances are it's just locking and unlocking, but your fundamental issue is that the trailer is just too heavy for the truck to pull comfortably. It's expressing its discomfort by constantly shifting to maintain the powerband against the extreme load.

Re: P0430 on 2003 LE **and now P0306**

If they're both hotter in front then they're both shot, especially if they're both hotter in front while the engine is misfiring. Unburned gas turns the a$$ end of a cat cherry red. I have to suspect one or both of yours are partially blocked.

Re: Picked up a 2023 Rock Creek yesterday

Yep, I was afraid of that. Collapsed frame underneath all that bent trim. Think of it this way, it buckled and went to heaven saving its owners. Kiss it goodbye fondly, it did its job.

Re: P1273 A/F B1 S1 Lean - expertise required!

Wait a sec... IMPORTANT: Did you clear out the self-learning data after replacing the A/F? If not, pretty much all the P127x/P128x codes will keep coming back even though the problem is fixed. If your scanner has work support for clearing LTFT then you can do it that way, otherwise pull the MAF whil...
