Customer Question
Im trying to locate...

Im trying to locate the ambient air temperature sensor on my 2012 Nissan maxima. I took off the grill this evening and couldn't locate it

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to help find that for your Nissan Maxima. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

I don't think so

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!
