Sometimes this code can appear if the cam position sensor isn't working or reading the cam position. With a scan tool the two banks can be checked against each other to see if it's reading. If it is, then it's likely going to need the cam shaft actuator replaced to resolve the issue. If that doesn't solve it, then the issue could possibly be the timing itself on that bank. If the timing is off, you will get this code.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!

I need an infiniti tech. I had a bad cam sensor 0345 and I
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
