Customer Question
I have a 2000...

I have a 2000 Nissan Maxima with the 3.0 automatic. it has throw a po0720 code. The engine will act like it has a miss or perhaps a bad coil pack when starting from a stop or driving.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Maxima yourself? What have you tried so far?

I went ahead and replaces the rev sensor and but still have the problem intermittently. Is there a test procedure for the connector?

hi there

im cam, a licensed diagnostic tech

this code is for the transmission revolution sensor at the rear of the transaxle

if this sensor fails, the transmission can go into limp mode making if eel like its missing

anytime i have had this code, i have replaced the sensor

1. Verify battery voltage to the revolution sensor on the Red/Yellow wire with the key on.

2. Verify the sensor ground is good on the Black wire - look for 0.05 volts or less.

3. Check the voltage on the White signal wire with the vehicle stopped - the voltage should read under 1.3 volts or over 4.5 volts.

4. Verify the White wire is good between the revolution sensor and the Transmission Control Module (TCM). Unplug the revolution sensor and the TCM and put battery voltage on one end of the White wire and see if the other end of the White wire will light an old style 12 volt test light bright. Check the wiring harness by the passenger strut tower per TSB# *****

5. Check the Hertz (Hz) of the revolution sensor while driving - specification is approximately 450 Hz at 12 MPH. May need to use a scan tool to obtain this reading. The service manual states that a circuit tester can not be used to check this item.

let me know how you make out!
