Well, I got it started by just letting it sit. Took it to autozone and got Code P1614 and P1610. (Nissan anti-theft system NATS failure) BUT.....The real culprit is the Camshaft Position Sensor. That code came up, and the service engine soon light is on now. Code P0345. I removed and cleaned the electrical terminals, still show code. going to order new one.

 

I think I activated the immobilizer by disconnecting the battery to clear the codes. what do you think. Car has started smooth about 10 times.

Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 8 years ago
Disconnecting the battery, does a full rest on the car. The immobilizer code could have been there if you tried to start the car with a key not programed, or even if the car had a weak battery it could have set that code off.

The P0345 is Bank 2 cam sensor. That is on the back side of the engine on the drivers side.

If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask. Thanks Jay!

I don't think the sensor is on the back of the driver's side. Are you sure? Or are you confusing it with the FX35? I ahve teh FX45 V8. I found one on the front of the engine.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 8 years ago
I am sorry, your right, I was thinking FX35 cause of the code. The FX45 doesn't have a Bank 2 cam sensor. Are you sure it's not a P0340 ?

Let me know, thanks Jay!
