Check if the Check Engine Light (CEL) comes on with key on. Check if it has communication with the scanner.
If it has neither, this is common. There could be a corroded splice connection about 8 inches from the battery, under the battery on the White/Blue wire.

Tech Tips:Look for the splice connection to be corroded.
This circuit feeds voltage to the Engine Control Module (ECM) at pins 67, 110 and 112. The ECM is also a common failure with this problem.

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!
