Check Engine Light 1996 Nissan Maxima

I've solved all the issues related to my check engine light on my 1996 nissan maxima. Replaced knock sensor, O2 sensor, tune up etc. Now I can't clear the check engine light. The codes have been cleared.

    My 1996 Oldsmobile 88 is running perfectly fine but has given a code of P0107 from my check engine light coming on recently. I was told that is the map sensor but if that part was bad my car would be running bad and my gas mileage would be bad too. I have none of those issues. Any idea what the issue is?

The best way is to use a scan tool to clear the codes, that will turn off the light, also disconnecting the battery over night may work, but no completely sure about that, it varies from year to year.

There is a silver box underneath the center console, just to the right of the gas pedal.

Pull off the plastic cover (it has two plastic fasteners. It will go back on).

Peel back the plastic film covering the screw.

Put the key in and turn the ignition switch on, but do not strt the car (all the warning indicator lights should go on).

Turn the screw all the way clockwise for two or three seconds and turn turn it back. Repeat just to be sure.

Turn the key off. When you turn the key back on the Check Engine light should be off.

Replace the plastic film over the screw and replace the plastic panel.

98 Nissan Maxima - Check Engine Light, Knock Sensor


If the car is pinging you will set a knock sensor code.'
This comes from bad gas and running lean., You really need this professionally inspected to rule out the basics. I have seen alot of nissans with the knock sensor code stored but the light is still off.
Fill up the tank with high octane chevron and some techron injector cleaner and clear the light. If it stays off for a couple days then go get it inspected. Even if the code is stored it will still pass as long as the light is still off and the monitors have run.

Nissan Maxima 1996 issues-sensors


Dear Gandhi
1) You better check the 'Idle control relay' - and pray this is not your computer - who may be shorted ( The Computer that govern all elec. functions in the car - is also getting signals from your Mothor Mounts' to ensure a more balanced ride' If one or more of the Motor Mounts ( There are 3 ) are defective - they send a signal to the computer - and the yellow light ( Check engine soon) - will appear'
2) A Computer can only be fixed by a Nissan dealer ( est. $750 ) 3) The Idle control valve - can be adjusted too ( Again - by a Nissan Dealer only .
4) It is NOT an easy problem nor cheap . In short - your best bet is with the dealer - and ask them for a diagnostic ONLY ( est. $100 ) Don't tell the dealer what YOU think or did .......just tell them the 'Yellow light comes on' .......they'll take it from there.
Sorry I don't have better news today .

Best of luck
David

1996 Nissan Maxima GXE Fail Smog Check Due To ECM System Failure


There is no way to fix this issue according to my Nissan Dealer Service Manager. The monitors will not run and therefore the vehicle will not pass smog. If you need assistance from California's SMOG authority they are called "The Referee" and you can call them at 1-800-622-7733.
