Have 2001 Nissan Pathfinder
. Earlier this year vehicle would not hold idle and would stall. Mechanic replaced IACV. 3 months later vehicle started to do the same and while I was deciding what to do the vehicle would turn over, but would not start. Mechanic said the ECM was fried. Replaced ECM with used ECM. Then had Nissan dealership install and reprogram the used ECM. Now this week the vehicle stopped running while I was driving. There was a smell of electrical funes and a small amount smoke from under the dash. Multiple check engine lights. Should I take it back to my mechanic or straight to the dealership?
JA: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?
Customer: The lights stay on. The engine does turn over.
JA: What is the make/model of your car?
Customer: 2001 Nissan PATHFINDER
JA: Are you fixing your Pathfinder yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: The last fix required the dealer to reprogram the ECM...so I'm looking for my mechanic or the dealership to do the work.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I've read that the IACV has to be replaced and a idle relearn needs to be completed if you replace the ECM. T/F? Does the ECM need to be replaced if you replace the IACV?
