throttle position sensor. i had this code for months w no drivability issues. this week it stopped and will not build RPM over about 2k. have done ecu resetting and it will not ever clear CEL. done it correctly at least 20 times. get through the complete sequence only to find the light never clears at the end. w/o this done first i am not able to perform the throttle relearn. beginning to think mayb my IDPM is bad. anyway to test it?
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
What is the exact code your getting please?
Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
po1023 and 1564 i believe? car is now draining battery so it is charging at moment. codes were the steering control one and throttlesensor. thats the only two codes its ever thrown
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
1564 and 2135
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
Is this a coupe or sedan?
Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
sedan 6mt
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
Thank you.
The P2135 is for the TP sensor which is part of the Electronic Throttle chamber asssembly. A calibration will not clear this code. Replacing the Throttle Chamber Assembly and performing the idle relearn.
The other code P1564 is for the steering wheel switches. The switches on the steering wheel will need to be replaced or Spiral cable to correct that problem.
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 just put a new throttle body on 2 days ago. still cant reset the ecu via manual modenkbvb
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
Did you get the throttle body from a auto parts store?
Does this code clear? or is this a different code since being replaced?
Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
same two codes and car still doesnot build rpm. ( drive)
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
Well I am not expecting the P1564 to be corrected by the Throttle chamber.
How are you clearing codes?
Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
im fully aware of this. one prob at a time. i was also assuming that both issues could be because the TPS. since cruise, accel, decel (steering switch) are also run through TPS
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
Until you resolve the TP code, you won't know for sure.
How did you attempt to clear that code? Also, where did you buy the throttle chamber?
Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
brand new part. sealed box. cant clear the ecu to relearn the throttle pos sensor. this was in my very first question. we have made zero progress.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i have an actron simple scan tool for checking and clearing code only.
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
I have been asking where did you buy the throttle chamber and you still have not told me.
Just now you finally told me you have a code reader to read and clear codes.
If you got this throttle chamber from a auto parts store, this is most likely part of the problem. After Market electrical parts never work right on these cars.
I know that is not the answer you want to hear, and it's something I run into allot with people. These cars are just to sensitive for after market electrical parts and that is why they never work right. I have taken off plenty of brand new electrical parts, including throttle chambers and replaced them with OEM parts to resolve issues.
Your welcome to take the part back and exchange it and tell them it's defective, but if that doesn't work, a dealer throttle chamber will be required.
Let me know if you have any more questions on this.
Thanks Jay!

its an OE nissan TB. that has been reman. they have just milled off the nissan stamp. you still havent answered a few of MY questions either! id rather test items before buying them. is this what the dealers do? just throw psrts at it until the prob goes away? in all my previous cars there have been procedures for testing these items. for instance i found a blown relay (tps relay) in the ipdm. replaced it and TB and car started and acted normal (revd above 4k) then light came on immediately and back to square one.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
also, why does nissan not sale these individual relays. they inly sell the whole ipdm. ive noticed that these are a commin problem too. is there pwr or continuity i can check to and from the throttle body perhaps. a pdf of tech manual would be the best help for me i think.
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
I have worked on these cars for over 20 years. 99% of the time if you have a TP code, it's a throttle chamber.
It is and isn't a Nissan Throttle chamber. They used the OEM housing and replaced all the guts of it with after market electrical parts. They have to grind off the Nissan Logo since they did not use Nissan Parts inside of it and it's copy righted.
It's not going to be a IPDM or a Relay. It's a internal issue with the Throttle chamber.
We can go back and forth about this, and I can tell your getting frustrated and you feel that I am not being helpful, but I am trying to give you the information needed to resolve your issue! If you don't want to follow these steps, you will keep fighting me and your issue with no resolution. I have no problem sharing any diagnostic steps with you for the TP code. Would you like that information?
Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
The IPDM is a Control unit. The Relays are not meant to be tampered with. That is why it's sold only as a assembly.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
not at all Jay! you are correct about the new aftermarket stuff. im no dummy, current mech engineer and build turbochargers for living. cars are easy its just the elec controlled stuff that gives you issues. Things are a bit more difficult when you dont have a $6k consult II supplying you with answers. i would just like test and confirm that the current tps i have is bad instead of hoping. does that make sense? is there procedure(s) for checking the TB is within parameters? i believe it is an input sensor correct?
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
Glad you understand where I am coming from. The info I supplied should help you test everything needed at the TP Sensor of the Throttle chamber.
Let me know if you have any more questions on this

whats the easiest way to reset the ecu? is there more ways than the ign/gas pedal sequence?disconnect battery and pump brake?
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
To do a Idle Relearn you mean? or simply just do a hard reset?
Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
well all the instructions i find online to relearn the TB say that you first need to clear the CEL before you can relearn TPS. is this true?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
before setting any of them. idle relearn, accel pedal& throttle closed position
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
Yes. You can't do a idle relearn if you have hard codes.
Did you find anything with the info I provided
Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
havnt been able to test anything yet cause my battery is still charging. lol. hard codes wont get erased if i "erase" with my scanner or disconnect the batt?
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
If you disconnect the negative battery cable for 15 mins, it will do a hard reset on the car. If the code returns after do this, it's a hard code which will require you to go through the data I provided.
As for battery draining issues, on these older G's, Seat Switches and Radios were the most common.

ordered an oem throttle body. once its installed should i start engine or go right into the relearns?
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
You need to start the engine and get it to around 80 degree's or so to perform the idle relearn.
Thanks Jay!

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
but do not rev at all?? the last throttle chamber i put on worked for a bit (cel off) until i started revving it. then i shut off engine. when i restarted it was acting the same as old one and the CEL turned back on. thats the only instance where the light has turned off for me.
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
Yeah, just start it and let it run. You don't need to rev it.
Actually a Idea is to warm it up, then change it. Then let it run for about 5 mins or so then attempt the relearn with the new one.
Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago

ok just installed OEM nissan/hitachi throttle chamber and im getting same results. unable to keep the CEL off long enough to perform idle air relearn. what now?
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
Try a Hard Reset by disconnecting the negative battery terminal for 15 mins. Do this after the car is warmed up. So when you start it, you can perform the idle relearn.

thats what i an trying now but the light seems to reset pretty darn quick. not sure if it will have time to get hot(just under half mark b/t hot and cold on temp gauge?)

Do you know what codes you have right now?
Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
okay. got the idle relearned i think. i drove the car (still idles a tad high for a moment) but as soon as the 1124 code pops up(after turning car off) it will no longer drive. if i clear the 1124 code it will start and drive again. lol also got a po135 code once
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
so 1124 code is tb again. so mayb i didnt get relearn correct?
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
Since the throttle chamber is OEM from the dealer, then you will have to perform more diagnostics. May have a wiring issue, Ecm or IPDM problem.Here is the complete diagnostic chapter for this code to help you. This may require more advanced diagnostics.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/105565483/1.pdfThanks Jay!

how can i perform the relearn if the engine light wont remain off long enough to reset the idle?? even my code reader isnt clearing the code long enough now. before it would take 4-5 key/ign cycles to come back on. now it returns withevery key turn? its not going to the dealer.
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
It sounds like something else may be your issue at this point. That is why I shared the diagnostic information.

now when i start the car it started spraying ac freon out. sounds like mayb the ipdm since it also has control over most things like ac. hmm i remember asking about that im my first inquiry since the relay to the Throttle chamber was toast. you confidently said that "it is not IPDM"ive spent 1k dollars listening to you about nissan genuine partsand both parts say assembled in japan at hitachi. thats exactly why its not going to the dealer. you guys just throw parts at the cars (at customer expense) and use comp programs that nobody has access to until the prob goes away. ill be purchasing an ipdm and i bet my issue gets resolved.
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
You never told me that throttle relay was burnt in the IPDM or ever mentioned the IPDM had corrosion.
Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
your right and im clearly beyond frustrated. apologies but im too far to take it in to dealer now. lol. and it had no visible corrosion but seemed to do some good. so im not sure what is up. ive now replaced IpDM and throttle chamber. tps sensor code has not returned but car still has a more DTCs and goes into limp mode often. id hate to buy more parts but theres so many frikkin problems with these cars its hard to know
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
idle relearn seem to take but goes up to 850rpm within a few min of running. i cleaned mass air sensor with elec parts cleaner. im now getting p1564 (steering switch)p0507 (high idle) and occasional p2138 (accel pedal pos sensor) lol it just never ends.
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
The P0507 means the idle relearn did not take.
The P2138 is a APP sensor code. How often would you say you loose throttle response?
Let me know..

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
any time car sits for more than mayb 30-45 min it is in limp mode when i start.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
didnt hold? when i start it every morn it idlesdown to 750rpm after warming up. it will come out of limp mode as soon as i clear the high idle code. p1564 seens to stay on ECM most of the time. comes back VERY quickly.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
so now im wondering about pedal switch? but why on earth would 2-3 items go bad within a couple
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
months. first was me cleaning TB and started slowly having issues. then the SET light started blinking every once in awhile. then went into limp mode shortly after. noticed TB relay froze then AC started doing weird things.

Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
Yes, it won't, but we need to test this.The APP shares a 5 volt reference with the AC pressure Sensor and Evap Pressure Sensor. Since you mentioned the AC has been acting up, this could be why. So simply unplugging the Ac Pressure Sensor and driving the car, if it doesn't go into limp mode any more, that is your problem!

it seems bout same as having both plugged in. when i first unplugged the AC it went longest w/o limping. then seemed to be same as other times. when i first started getting the limp it was very seldom. mayb happened three times in a month until it syarted kicking the throttle code. since then its been pretty much same
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
Then you may need to try a App Sensor which is the Accelerator pedal and see if that helps. Other wise, advanced electrical will be required to isolate the short causing the 5 volt reference to fall under spec.

Well this is all new information which would have been helpful earlier. That tells me you could have corrosion in the harness somewhere causing your issue.

Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
The horn goes down to the the harness out to the IPDM. Or the horn could have taken in water if you drove through the deep water. I spent a ton time with you on this. At this point you need to inspect harness for water intrusion and corrosion for your issue. Thanks Jay

check the harness where? at the horn connectors and follow back up to ipdm?
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
I would try a different horn to see if the operation changes. I would be checking the harness at the fuse box, BCM and all main connections that are low that water may have gotten in. Thanks Jay!

Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
They don't give you to many checks for the spiral cable since that powers the drivers air bag. You are most likely dealing with a harness issue. You will need to check all your lower Main Harnesses inside the car. Because you went through water, you now can have anything causing this.

I have been trying to help you with this issue since the 7th of June. Then on the 20th of June, you tell me that the throttle relay was burnt in the IPDM.. New info that would have been helpful. Then the 7th of July you disclose that you went through deep water. Another thing that would have been valuable to know. I offered you additional service multiple times to help you on the phone, and you never accepted. Since that new information, the relay burning and going through deep water, you need to check the inside harness and engine bay harnesses for a short. That is what melted the relay. This is going to require advanced electrical diagnostics! When we started this question all you said was that the Tps singsl was not working. You gave me no history of your issue. This could have saved me and you a ton of time. It doesn't mater if it has after market equipment or not any more. The harness has issues and will require hands on diagnostics to isolate and repair the issue. Something that I can not help you with.

thanx again. off the top of your head, any certain wires/ circuit that would cause SES not to illuminate/obd port to not communicate? im figuring that is also why it will not start. im close, found lots of corrosion on harness cleaned it all pretty good but looks like im gonna have to check each item as i go. obviously would like to get obd sorted and car to start.
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago
Normally if the SES light doesn't come on, it's due to a Bad Ecm. Since you found corrosion, that could have allowed voltage to go into another circuit and short out the Ecm. So you may be looking at a Ecm issue now. That certainly will keep it from starting. You will also need to reprogram keys if it needs to be replaced as well as a Idle Relearn. Thanks Jay!

I had a bad cam sensor 0345 and I changed both of them, after that I got the 0021 code which is timing over advanced in bank 2, I read on line dirty oil causes this code so I changed the oil, same code. I read somewhere else that if I didn't use genuine nissan sensors I could get this code so I replace both sensors and the car won't start. It cranks but no start. I have checked both solenoids (intake valve timing) and they are clean and work I wanted to make sure I had good oil pressure so I left the solenoid off and cranked it and it took 5 or 6 cranks to get oil out of the hole. I don't know what is wrong I think either the timing is so far advanced the computer won't let it start or cam phaser is stuck. I am at a loss what to do next… read more
