Hi Roy,

 

Thanks for your help. The information you gave me is the same information that I provided you with. I was not able to relearn the throttle with the provided information.

I had to take the car to the dealer. The Nissan dealer relearn the throttle & make the MIL

to go out for good.

Thanks again. Your information was good but this vehicle did not work with your advise.

I know you tried your best. Thanks again.

Is there any aftermarket scanners that you recommend that would make this kind of job to work besides the dealer scanner, $3000 snap on or otc. Is there a good scanner that

you recommend for under $500.

HI!

 

I am not sure we just use the consult ,one of the major suppliers like OTC might make one you would need to check with them . Thanks let me know if you need more help , Thanks ROY!
