General information

  • Engine control module (ECM) incorporates self-diagnosis function.
  • Malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) will illuminate if certain faults are recorded.
  • ECM operates in backup mode if sensors fail, to enable vehicle to be driven to workshop.
  • Trouble codes can be displayed by using a Scan Tool connected to the data link connector (DLC) or by the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL):
o 350Z- 1.
o Maxima/Murano!TitanNersa – 2.
o Pathfinder/Armada/Quest – 3

NOTE: The use of a Scan Tool is essential to obtain full diagnostic information.

Accessing – Mode 1

  • Switch ignition ON.
  • Check MIL illuminates.
  • Start engine. Allow to idle.
  • If MIL extinguishes, no trouble codes have been recorded.
  • If MIL remains illuminated, access trouble codes.

Accessing – Mode 2

  • Ensure accelerator pedal is fully released.
  • Switch ignition ON. Do NOT start engine.
  • Wait 3 seconds.
  • Within 5 seconds, repeat the following 5 times:
o Fully depress accelerator pedal.
o Fully release accelerator pedal.
  • Wait 7 seconds.
  • Fully depress accelerator pedal.
  • After approximately 10 seconds MIL will start flashing.
  • Fully release accelerator pedal.
  • Self-diagnosis now in Mode 2.
  • Count flashes and compare with trouble code table.
  • Each trouble code consists of four groups of one or more flashes.
  • The first group of flashes indicate the ‘thousands’ of the trouble code [3] [A].
  • The second group of flashes indicate the ‘hundreds’ of the trouble code [3] [B].
  • The third group of flashes indicate the ‘tens’ of the trouble code [3] [C].
  • The fourth group of flashes indicate the ‘units’ of the trouble code [3] [D].
  • Ten flashes in a group indicate ‘0’.
  • A short pause separates each trouble code group [3] [E].
  • A long pause separates each trouble code [3] [F].
  • For example: Trouble code P1130 displayed [3].
  • Switch ignition OFF.
  • Self-diagnosis will return to Mode 1.

Erasing

  • Trouble codes can be erased by using a Scan Tool connected to the data link connector (DLC) or as follows:
  • Ensure accelerator pedal is fully released.
  • Switch ignition ON. Do NOT start engine.
  • Wait 3 seconds.
  • Within 5 seconds, repeat the following 5 times:
o Fully depress accelerator pedal.
o Fully release accelerator pedal.
  • Wait 7 seconds.
  • Fully depress accelerator pedal.
  • After approximately 10 seconds MIL will start flashing.
  • Fully release accelerator pedal.
  • Self-diagnosis now in Mode 2.
o Fully depress accelerator pedal for more than 10 seconds.
o Fully release accelerator pedal.
o Trouble code 0000 should be displayed.
