My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
If you are unable to communicate with the ECM anymore after you lost communication to check codes,data or program and all fuses are good the ECM has failed internally needing replaced.Unfortunately allot of models if during programming communication is lost or battery voltage drops to low this damages the ECM to where it needs replaced and then programmed.
Thanks Pete

What Customers are Saying:

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!
