Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

The diagnosis charge for this code at a shop or dealer can run around $100 in some cases to test to pinpoint the cause.The code here can set due to a fault with a step motor in the transmission,wiring or speed sensor issues or an internal fault in the TCM ( transmission computer itself).If any of these have an issue this causes this code.The cost to repair this will vary all depending on what is at fault.It may run anywhere from $100 to over $1000 to have repaired depending on if it is a wiring issue,step motor issue or mechanical fault in the transmission.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

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!
