Question about 1996 Nissan Pickup

2 Answers

Diagnostic codes I went to Auto Zone for a Free Diagnostic check. They gave me Two codes: P0304, and P0180. I checked the fuses, and didn't find any bad ones. I want to have a heads up on the problem, because being a woman, I usually get screwed when bringing in my vehicle. Not trying to complain, but I'm at the mechanic's mercy, and this always cost me a fortune. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry, I forgot the most important part of my question. The check engine light is on. The truck is running fine, but that damn light is on. Got it checked for that reason.

    Ok, coonasslady, a few questions: why did u get the diagnostic check? Is the Nissan not running right? If not, what is it doing or not doing? Code 180 is 'fuel temperature sensor A circuit malfunction,' 304 is 'cylinder 4 miss-fire detected' countrycurt0

Hi, I have an '05 Colorado and the check engine light came on for a couple days, went off completely (not even lighting when starting etc.), then came back on. Today the little green indicator light for...

Simply put anytime any check engine light comes on it is usually an indication of a slight malfunction happening within the engines emmisions system/sensors failure, etc.
If you dont want to purchase a hand held scanner for 100.00 take the vehicle into an Auto Zone Auto Parts Store and they will attach there scanner to your Diagnostic onboard connector link and read out the code or codes to you and give you a print out if needed to make the neccessary repairs to the engines computerized system, all for "FREE!!!

Switch For check engine light

There is no switch for the Check Engine Light!
The ECM turns the light on when a Diagnostic Trouble Code is set!
The light can be turned off with a Diagnostic Scanner when the code is retrieved but will return if the problem isn't repaired!

Advanced Auto Parts and Auto Zone will scan it for Free,I'd find out what the codes are and go from there!

Engine light just came on took to auto zone they gave me this code PO304 Trying to see what it is

A P0304 OBD2 code is "cylinder #4 misfire detected". The first place to start is your spark plugs. 1. Check condition and for wear. 2. check the spark plug wires or coil packs(depending on which you have).

Service now engine light

Cars now days are funny. Any little thing not right in the massive amounts of sensors will throw a check engine light. Have the vehicle brought to your local Auto Zone for a free diagnostic check. It could be something as simple as the gas cap is not on tight. Auto Zone will check it out for free. ------------------- as per the codes from the diagnostic check you can get the exact faulty part or location of the fault. ------------- thanks.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

Hi. there are two reasons for a non scan when dealing with the diagnostic CPU. one is user error. most auto zone techs are not trained to use the diagnostic equipment correctly and if a problem comes up and they cant get a reading, the usually will blame the non scan on the patrons vehicle. Even if you had a few blown fuses in this vehicle, you should be able to still grab a code. doesn't matter if the fuse is blown.The only technical error that can exist in your vehicle that could block a proper scan would be a ecm/pcm failure or, a damaged input port that is used by the diagnostic cpu to download the trouble codes.

I recommend first, taking it to the dealership so that you can get a professional diagnostic scan run by a real technician. If there is another scan error once more, it will most likely be the input port under the dash that is damaged or the vehicles cpu may be damaged as well.

Please rate and god bless:)

Check engine light just came on

I had the same issue...I went to Auto Zone and got a diagnostic...Came back that mt Throttle Position Sensor was faulty...However after taking it to the dealer, and paying 135.00 for their diagnostic...You can't simply buy the sensor. You have to buy a new Throttle Body at 902.00 + Tax. I hope it's not your problem, but go get a FREE diagnostic first.

Check your fuse to your cigarette lighter then go back to autozone and see if they can get codes to pull. I have seen this before. Hope this helps.
