I have a 2012 Nissan Versa - It has lost power (slow to accelerate). A mechanic friend of mine said his diagnostic tool said it was the speed sensor. He's not so sure that it is. (he has an older diagnostic tool). I could not get it to go very fast (about 60mph). It jerks a bit when it is put into gear. The engine light did come on.

He was going to put a speed sensor on it - but didn't want me to be out $200 bucks for the part if it didn't fix the problem.

Hey there, thanks for the question.Are there any fault codes?

P0500 - Vehicle Speed Sensor A
P0890 - TCM Power Relay Sense Circuit Low

Hey there, sorry for the delay.

You need to check the fuses for the TCM. Primarily this fuse in the IPDM.

The reason being is the P0890 is a power supply issue to the TCM. Indicating its recieving low voltage or no voltage. This would cause the other codes to come up because of it.

Replaced that fuse (which appeared to be bad) - still doing same thing.

Thats almost impossible to believe that it made no difference if the fuse was blown, unless the TCM was bad.

disconnect the battery and rest the computer and see if your problem is gone.

If the fuse was blown then the P0500 was likely a result of the TCM power issue, so i would not replace the sensor yet.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

from the pic looks like the fuse is burnt up and the lower right side of it is not visible which is a good indication that it's blown.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
If that code remains even after replacing the fuse check to see if the fuse blew again
Ask Your Own Nissan Question

yea, if the fuse is blown, then the filament you see inside the red part is generally broken. meaning it has a burn through.

do you have a voltmeter by chance? can we do some tests?

The fuses I took pictures of were of other 10 amp fuses I replaced (not just the one you told me to check) I'll have to borrow voltmeter and I'll get back with you
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I found an old volt tester and tested the fuses. The one I replaced I put back in and it was working as well. So apparent a fuse was not blown.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
My wife had just filled up with gas a bit before the vehicle started acting this way. Is there any way getting bad gas could set off these events?

bad gas can cause weird things, but WILL NOT cause these codes.

If you have the volt tester, then lets test the wires running to the TCM.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

With key to ON position you should have battery voltage at all three wires. One is light green and the other 2 red.

I just replaced the TCM with a used one - looks like there was corrosion where the wire plug went into the TCM - perhaps that's all it was - anyways the vehicle works as it should now.
Thanks for the follow up!Thanks.
