Name is Greg, My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

Disconnect the battery for a few minutes then reconnect and then let me know if the engine will start and keep running if not then see if you can get a code reader and read codes and post for me to check .

Hi Greg,


I disconnected the battery for 10 minutes, On restart, the engine fault light still came on, and the engine cut out again after about 10 seconds.


The fault codes are 0141 and 0143.


Hope this helps!

Hi .

Thank you for the good information .

P0141 02 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 2)

P0143 02 Sensor Circuit Low Voltage (Bank I Sensor 3)

But your car does not have a Sensor 3 which is the P0143 .

Do you have a code reader to check for codes .

Hi Greg,


Unfortunately I do not have a code reader, so I will be taking it into a Nissan dealer tomorrow for diagnosis.


For the moment I do not need any more info, and thanks for your time.

Hi Mark .

You can get a code reader from Halfords cheaper than have it read by the dealership .

Just an idea .
