Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, My name is*****'m happy to help you. During our conversation, I may be presenting you with different things to try, and ask you some Questions to get a better understand of the issue so I can answer your question properly. So stick with me to the end, and I am sure we should be able to get this issue resolved for you!
Do you have a Service Engine Soon light on when the engine is running? Do you know what the code number is ***** your getting?
If you are getting APP sensor codes, I may know what your issue is.
Let me know.
I also offered you additional service if you like. This way we can speak about your issue. It's another option if you would like to do that. Other wise we could continue here if you like also.
That is a Throttle Position code.
Where did you buy these throttle chambers you installed?
Oh, that could be part of the problem. After Market electronic throttle chambers never work right.
What was wrong with the wiring?
No.. everyone thinks that, but they are not.
Can you find out what he had to repair as far as the wiring?
It was a problem with the connector?
I don't see connector issues to often on these cars.
I would see if you can get a throttle chamber from the dealer. When you get these reman Throttle chambers from auto parts stores, they use the OEM housing where it says Hitachi, but the internals are far from it.
where did you buy it? Can you return it?
Yeah... I have seen cars come in to the dealer so many times with After Market electrical parts and had to put OEM parts in to correct issues like this.
I would say maybe around 6 months ago, a customer came into the dealer with a 03 Altima V6, where he replaced the throttle chamber and was still getting codes and couldn't perform the idle relearn. I looked at it, and saw it was after market. I put a OEM one on and took the after market one off, cleared all the codes, performed the idle relearn, and car has not been back since.
Is that the same code you keep getting?
I need to step out for a few. Can we continue this conversation on this in about a hour or so?
Thank you for waiting.
How many times has it been to the shop for this issue? Has it been the same shop?
So if the wiring and everything is good, then it sounds like it has to be the throttle chambers you are getting. Which does not surprise me.
How long does it normally take for the code to return once it's cleared?
Why did you replace the pedal? Did you have a code for it?
If you have the dealer install it and do the relearn, you have a 1 year or 12 mile warranty on the part and labor. So if the dealer was to look at this, and replace the throttle chamber for you, they would then be liable for this if the code returned.
But I know the dealer is expensive. But if the issue continues, wiring would need to be checked, and it could possibly be a Ecm issue.
See, they blamed the throttle chamber also. I would get a throttle chamber from the dealer. Have the idle relearn done and go from there. After Market electrical parts can't be trusted to work properly
The throttle chamber has all those tp sensors built into it. That link is incorrect to say that the accelerator pedal is part of the issue. This link I am giving you is right out of the factory service manual.
You need to start by replacing the throttle chamber with one from the dealer.
It is not. It would only come with the whole EGI Harness. If you would like to replace that connector you would need to go to a salvage yard and snip it off a old harness.
If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.
If not, and you're satisfied with my help, please Rate me. I hope I have provided you with Excellent Service.
I will be online later this evening..
You redid the shielded wire on the harness and it seems to be good?
i do know of some throttle issues. but normally it sets App codes. Lets see how the repair works out and let me know..
That silicone keeps everything tight together with in the harness.
