Is there a way to make the Check Engine Light blink to identify a code? Or how about another method? (E.G. turn key on and off several times which would make the light blink to identify a code) I had a clogged EGR Tube, removed everything, replaced it with a new one, took it to shop and reset computer, but after an hour or so, the Check Engine Light came on again!

It could be a bad coil, nissan recommends uses there coils as aftermarket coils dont work, they will fire the cylinder but turn on the check engine light, you must use nissan coils, if you can give me the code that come up i can help you turn light off and solve the problem. good day
You have three codes there 12 - Memory standby power recently lost (Recently disconnected the battery, always appears this code (not problem)) Power loss light: Off Limp-in mode: None
54 - No fuel injector sync pickup signal during engine rotation Power loss light: On Limp-in mode: Logic module will guess at injector timing
Possible Causes Bad connection or wiring - Check the wiring and connections between the hall effect sensor (located underneath the distributer cap) and the logic module. Check the continuity of the two 3 conductor cables coming out of the sensor--these are prone to fatiguing and breaking inside the insulation where they exit the sensor if the cables are not properly tied down. You may be able to resolder them. Clean and regrease any corroded connectors with dielectric grease and repair any shorts.
Hall effect sensor failure - Check the two, flat 3 conductor cables coming out of the sensor. These often fatigue where they exit from the sensor. Upon replacing the sensor, make sure the cables are clipped or tied to the distributor cap shroud (or elsewhere) so they do not swing around.
Diagnostic Method - Trigger Parameters - Engine cranking or running (signal coming from ignition reference sensor) - No signal from the fuel injector sync pickup sensor
Results If Component Fails: Fault code 54 is stored. The engine will stall and will not start.
55 - End of message
(Test Finished) Power loss light: Off
Limp-in mode: None
put your key in the ignition, turn it on and then off 3 times withing 5 seconds, do not actually start the vehicle doing this. after doing this the check engine light will blink a diagnostic code in sequence. a slight pause between blinking is the indictaion that the next number is going to blink, some codes will look like this, blinks 1 time and pause, blinks 4 times then no more. the code for this would be 14, you will then have to look up the engine codes for your make and model of vehicle to see what the computer in your vehicle has to say what is wrong. when you retrieve the code write down what the code says and then call a mechanic to get further information on how easy it is to fix.
If the check engine light comes on, YOU NEED the CODE. this will tell you what problem your engine has noticed and needs to be corrected. Without this, the list of problems could be a mile long......look in you owners manual and see if you can tell the car to give you the code...it can do this through Morse code with a designated blinking light
Your ABS light is not directly related to your engine and would not cause your vehicle to shut down. Therefore, we need to have the Diagnostic Codes extracted from your vehicle's computer, before we can examine likely causes.
Assuming you cannot extract codes from the DTC connector, I can offer a different method which applies to some late model Nissans...
ACCELERATOR PEDAL METHOD (read carefully):
1 Switch the ignition ON (but DO NOT start the engine).
2 Wait 3 seconds.
3 Within the next 5 seconds, "fully depress - then fully release the accelerator pedal" 5 times (i.e. once per second).
4 Wait 7 seconds.
5 Fully depress the accelerator pedal...and hold it down for approximately 10 seconds.
6 The "ENGINE CHECK" Light should begin flashing. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
7 Read codes as described in the Code Format Description below.
Code Format Description - the fault code will be in one of the following Code Formats below:• The code is made up of four groups of flashes each representing a digit.
• A long flash indicates the 'thousands' digit.
• 'Hundreds' 'Tens' and 'Ones' are groups of short flashes respectively.
• A long pause separates each trouble code.
• A shorter pause separates each group of flashes
• Please note: A '0' digit is indicated by 10 flashes with this system.
• Each code is made up of two series of flashes.
• The long flashes indicate the 'hundreds' digit, however can be a value up to 13 (eg 13 flashes = Thirteen Hundred).
• The short flashes indicate the 'ones' digit, however can a value up to 15.
• A long pause separates each code sequence.
Once you obtain the codes (or have someone do it for you) from your ENGINE CHECK LIGHT, post the codes here are someone can assist you further.
PS: Your first priority is to get the vehicle mobile again. We can then deal with the ABS issue separately.
