I have changed the camsensor...the code went off and all was fine until I started driving and problems came up again
Nissan Mechanic: Mike V., Nissan Technician replied 9 months ago

The first thing I would do is make sure they used a dealer part. I have seen a lot of time where the aftermarket parts just don't do it and the code will come back. This will trigger the traction control and abs lights to come on. Its not that there is a problem with those systems, just that since the check engine light is on with this code, it's going to cause the lights.

Depending on the code, make sure you are putting the right bank on. on this engine bank 1 is the one closest to the firewall.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

would this also cause car to stall though?
Nissan Mechanic: Mike V., Nissan Technician replied 9 months ago

Oh yes when the computer loses the signal from the cam sensor it will stop it from running. This is to prevent engine damage if the timing is off. If the timing is off the cam sensor will see it. That's actually it's job.
