Hi,The pa200 isn't a standard trouble code. They typically start with a P0... I have never seen a pa200 and can't find one listed in the 2006 pathfinder reference materials. Is it possible that you have any other trouble codes?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Im sorry its P2A00
Expert:  Jared D replied 7 months ago.
Oh ok. That makes more sense. That code points to a bad oxygen sensor. The problem is usually in the bank 1 sensor, but sometimes you have to replace both sensors in order to solve the problem. Do you plan to fix it yourself?
Expert:  Jared D replied 7 months ago.
The sensors in question are circled here. Bank 1 sensor 1 and 2 are usually needed when we see the p2a00 code.
Expert:  Jared D replied 7 months ago.
This code can also come on because of exhaust leaks. Do you hear any unusual exhaust noise?

I'm leaving the shop for the day. I'll check back in the evening.
