  • Performed obd2 scan – 8 faults stored in various modules – see full report. Engine module had 00459C Cylinder 1 smooth running controller – absent. Cleared faults and none returned. Tires are in good condition look almost new, brakes have been recently replaced (fr and R). Checked/set tire pressures to 35f 38r, reset tpms. Coolant level was below "low" mark – performed coolant pressure test @15psi. Over about 20min pressure dropped to 13psi – no visible external leaks at this time. Engine oil was just below "low" mark – topped up with 1L but oil level did not change. Performed test drive and brakes feel good, steering is tight, no vibrations felt. Suspect slight coolant leak but not visible at this time, keep eye on coolant level and check frequently to determine how much coolant it's going through. Rear lower valance is damaged, scuff on PS rear wheel well in front of tire also. "close rear hatch" comes on randomly – checked and it is closed.

  • Confirmed code in ECM and ABS (see printout) double checked cam sensor connections. Cleared codes. Traction lamp went out after engine code clear. went into ABS unit as well and cleared the single code. Airbag light on also. Test Drove with live data of cams and both sides read/perform equally. no surging, or lumping idle. Read codes on return and found none pending or active. Put car in rack and did visual inspect of underside and found no leaks and no issues of concern. Test drove 2nd time for longer to confirm that the performance did not change. Both low beam bulbs inop. Recommend oil change with high quality oil as well as OEM filter. It is common for this system to have issues due to incorrect oil, dirty oil or poor filtration from low quality filters. If problems persists, further diag will be required but faults/symptoms must return to be able to check into it further. Customer requested low beam bulbs be replaced. Replaced both with new.
  • Added to engine flush before change. Ran to operating temp @ different rpm ranges, drained while warm. Replace engine oil and filter. Test drove for another 10+ mi, no CEL or running issues returned. Recommend driving vehicle normally and return for further diagnosis if faults or symptoms return. Recommend oil changes at 5k intervals – next change due at 140k

  • Gas light is on – low light warning on dash display. Battery was low and vehicle will not crank over. Moved into shop and put on battery charged and attempted to scan obd2. Cannot communicate via obd2 – need to get port working to be able to see engine data or faults. Even with full charge engine will not crank over. Suspect electrical issues – need to check fuses and relays for fuel pump/sensor circuit etc. Verified all related fuses are OK – no blown fuses found. Confirmed power at battery terminal and fuseble links – OK. Key on radiator fan on full is a fail safe for when there is no communication with the engine ECU. Also means no CANBUS communication with ECU. Since no comm at OBD2 port suspect issue with ECU based on info on tech info. If no communication with ECU and can lines are not broken, ECU will need to be replaced. Found tech info that showed a test for ECU failure. Tested ohm between pin 6 and 14 (can hi and lo) – 75.5 ohm. Continuity checked can wires from obd2 plug to engine ecu – passed with less than 1ohm of resistance. Suspect ECU has failed and will need to be replaced in order to diagnose further.
  • Installed new ECU and attempted to connect and program. Cannot communicate with ECU. Was able to connect and read other modules, BCM and TCM both have missing info from ECU as well as U1000 fault stored – CAN comm fault.
  • Using factory nissan programing software attempted to program blank ECU. Nissan software continually shuts off trying to detect ecu and find ecu part number to begin flashing. Contacted nissan customer service 7/11 and got a response requesting more information 7/12. Emailed all info that was requested including screenshots 7/12. Awaiting response to be able to further troubleshoot and program ECU. After waiting for 4 weeks with no support, tech support finally responded with irrelevant information for issues with the flash software. After making multiple attempts to program and continuing software issues and no support, the customer decided to have the car towed to a dealership to complete the programming and for further diagnosis if needed. Old ECU is in passenger seat, new ECU is completely installed.

  • Removed timing cover and re-sealed. Found machining defect was cause of leak. Followed procedure outlined from Toyota to repair leak. Re-installed all components and road tested. No more oil leaking after 30+ miles of test driving. During test drive noticed loud humming from front end on hwy, sounded like coming from left front wheel bearing. Replaced bearing with new and noise was still present. Inspected front differential and found the outer support bearing has a lot of play – recommend installing fix it kit for support bearing. Used stethoscope while running on lift and found RF wheel bearing was also very loud. Replaced with new and performed test drive.

  • Car was towed in and confirm it will not move. Was able to get car off truck and jacked up each corner. Found each caliper is very tight like pedal is depressed. Brake pedal is depressed a small amount and will not return. Suspect mechanical issue in pedal or master cylinder. C1142 fault o/a After sitting in the shop for a couple of hours, brake pedal returned to normal position and brakes where no longer stuck. We test drove around the block and no issues where present.
  • Car did not start in a.m after sitting for a couple of days. Had to jump lamp switch under dash to get it to unlock shifter and start up. Removed switch and tested the brake switch on the bench and it did pass. Re-installed brake switch and car started multiple times without issue. tested 2nd switch above the stop lamp switch and it passed test, and showed up on live data reading as operating. Removed and Tested brake pedal position switch mounted above the stop lamp switch – passed. (off/on switch per info from nissan). This switch required some adjustment on re-installation to get to work correctly and ensure pedal contact. Read ABScodes again, found PAST codes: C1198 Vac sensor circuit C1116 Stop lamp switch Cleared codes, test drove again, brakes worked without drag, Re scanned whole car, no codes returned after test drive. Brake system functions completely normal at this time. Only issue intermittently present is the stop lamp switch causing an intermittent no start condition. Brakes have not locked up since car was dropped off and car sat in shop for a couple of hours without being moved.
  • Replaced brake switch. Car started right up 8/25 after new switch was installed. Test drove, stopped several times, shut off and restarted every time. Unable to duplicate brake binding issue again. Car did not start in am of 8/26 after sitting over night, after replacing brake switch with new. Did code scan and found no codes in any module. Live data showed brake switches working as should, and pressure switch signal was present. After several minutes and several attempts to start, it finally unlocked the shifter w brake pedal application and car started – did not have to jump the switch. Once the car starts it seems to not have an issue again until sitting over night. Pedal felt normal with no brake drag. ever since brakes released after car was dropped off from tow truck.
  • Intermittently the car will not start, usually after sitting over night. If you attempt to start it several times, then wait a few minutes and try again it will start. Once it has started the first time, it will always start throughout the day. Found when no start present, stop lamp switch does not read in scan tool – jumped terminals – still no signal to abs module. 12v is present during this […]

  • Test drove and confirmed noise, sounds like right front corner, only on left turns. Put car on lift for inspection and found new brake pads on DS font only. Brakes are very rusty (all). Removed RF wheel, caliper and brake rotor. Found significant amount of rust and debris behind caliper and rotor pads are VERY low – around 1mm left – suspect rotor is touching caliper. Cleaned and re-installed and test drove. Noise is still present but now is only audible on LF. Removed LF wheel and inspected, rotor is very rusty and backing plate was slightly bent, cleaned out back side of rotor between backing plate, bent plate back into correct position and test drove again. Measured rotor thickness, Minimum spec is 22mm, currently DS measures at 23.4mm. Noise is still present, not audible when car is on rack in air with wheels spinning and turned lock to lock. Stethoscope checked each side and no noise is audible when wheels are not loaded. Found PS rear wheel bearing is VERY loud, DS is also noisy, neither are loose at this time. Noise is still present, was able to recreate in shop and had 2nd person listen outside the car, sounds is coming from LF. Brake pads are down to 1mm or less and bad wear indicator clips are sticking out past pads. Suspect when wheel is loaded while turning clip is just slightly touching rotor. Recommend new pads and rotors – all – due to very poor condition and rust as well as very low pad in LF.
  • Replaced both front pads and rotors. Found 1 bolt on each side for the mounting bracket VERY rusty, replaced 2 bolts on DS with new and used best 2 old bolts on passenger side. Cleaned hubs with wire brush and brake clean before reassembly. Old pads on passenger side had less than 1mm on outer pad and there is wear marks visible on the pad wear indicator clips – likely source of front end noise. After replacing fronts I spun the rear wheels while up in the air, both sides made similar noise to the front. Performed test drive to bed in front pads, ticking sound with wheel rotating noted from both rear wheels leaving the shop, front end sounds quiet. No noise present when turning left or right. After bedding in front pads rear noise went away. Due to condition of rear brakes suspect customer will experience more noises until rear brakes are replaced. Brake pedal is firm and front brakes feel smooth after break in.

  • Found 2 faults stored: P1410 sec air combi valve open – seized P2444 sec air pump ON malfunction Most common cause of the p1410 is a failed combi valve, which will then throw the p2444 fault. Will need to remove intercooler to diagnose which valve is bad, generally recommended to replace both as a pair.
