Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!
So are you having any lights coming on in the dash
would you care to share that information with me
Have you had the vehicle scanned for any codes
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
Sorry for the experts response time. Please keep in mind it does take time to look up information or to type.
For your issue, Can you please tell me if you turn the key to the ON position if the Security light is ON Solid and if the Service Engine Soon light is on?
Thank you. That is a indication that you have a key programming issue. When the security light is solid it means that the computer can't read the chip in the key or a un-programmed key is trying to start the vehicle so it activates the Immobilizer
So you will need to have all keys programmed to the vehicle. When you have a key that is programmed, when you turn the key to the ON position, the security light will be off.
The dealer can do this, or a Mobile locksmith can program keys for you.
Are the keys you have After Market?
or are they factory keys?
If they are factory keys, they may not be programming them properly. But if they can't be programmed, either the Nats Antenna is bad, or the Ecm. It's one of the two if keys won't program.
If it's the Ecm, it would need to be replaced. The part is no longer available from the dealer, so you would need to buy a used one, Reman, or send yours out for repair.
A scanner would be needed along with a Immobilizer diagnostics would need to be done to verify if the Ecm is the issue
These older Ecm's did come with software on them. How ever, they are no longer produced. So you would have to get a used one or a Remanufacuted ( repaired ) one. Or send yours out for repair
If you want I can supply you the Ecm terminal layout if you want to perform circuit tests? But as far as giving you a answer with out looking at the vehicle to verify, I can only suggest what to check for your issue. Or I can supply you the checks so it can properly be diagnosed
Ok.. You would need to wait till I get home from work. That is in about 3 to 4 hours. Can you wait till then. I will then share as much info on this as I can.
Please don't post personal information. I will share the info back on this question. So all you would need to do is log back into JustAnswer.com and go to my questions to return back to this question.
No problem. Let me get you the info when I get home.
sorry, I had a personal issue that required my attention last night. Can I share that info with you tonight?
Thank you for the Rating.. Will get you that information tonight when I get home from work.
Thank you for your Patience. Here is the Complete Ecm Terminal Reference check and Full Nats system information from the Factory service manual.
