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!

How i can fix that problem on my nissan
Expert:  Mechanic01 replied 1 month ago.

so you can measure the sensor and im looking for that procedure now, while I do that have you checked the wiring from the sensor, and are you getting any other codes in the system? And have you checked fuses with a volt meter yet?

you can try hooking it up to a drill like in this video and checking it
