Hi Mick .

Just has the same issue in my shop only yesterday ,problem was also a aftermarket sensor .

Nissan management system work with very small parameters and if the aftermarket is not within these it will flag the same code .

Which model and engine do you have .

Possible causes

Faulty Crankshaft Position Sensor

Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor harness is open or shorted

Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor circuit poor electrical connection

Signal plate may be damage

Starter motor may be faulty

Starting system circuit

Dead or weak battery

Check the wiring harness from the sensor to the ECM for any damage .
