Nissan altima crank positioning sensor

I have a 99 nissan altima and my snap on soltace gives me a code that the crank positioning sensor needs to be replaced. I have done that twice and also replaced the distributor and fuel pump. The car runs fine cold but when it starts to heat up it begins to run rough again and the same code shows up again.

What is the actual code? I have a feeling you are misinterpreting the code.

My 94 Nissan Altima ECU is giving code #21. This is for Ignition signal. Haynes manual says, "See dealer". It is also coding #11 - camshaft sensor.


Code 11 crankshaft position sensor or Camshaft position sensor. Code 21, Ignition Signal, Diagnostic Tree . Best to take to dealer for repairs and to remove codes, the codes do not mean the units are faulty ,just there is a fault, could be just a bad connection.

Crank position sensor for 2003 Nissan Altima


a crank position sensor , sends a signal to pcm about crankshaft position signal, the sensor controls spark timing and firing order. the signal is also used for pcm to detect a missfire!! it also sends this info to ignition module, any mechanic can replace a crankshaft sensor!! call a auto parts store and see if you can get one, the cost should be a lot less.

2002 Altima 2.5 is now giving me problems like it doesn't want to start...it is not the alternator, battery or starter. Very frustrating because it starts when it wants to..


I would be looking towards the crank angle sensor failure. Its located right above the passenger side drive shaft, where it goes into the trans. Good luck

Check engine light on . engine speed sensor. 04 altima, crankshaft position sensor.


The engine speed signal code is generated from the crank sensor. The crank sensor is located on the back side of the engine block. See image.

1995 altima , 16 valve: no spark going to motor


I would be leary of the crank position sensor as these pre OBDII types are mounted in theupper transaxle bell housing. I would check for diagnostic codes and possibly using a DVOM meter check for an A/C millivolt signal to be produced out of the sensor while cranking the engine.Codes 11 and/or 34 present could further support there are issues with this vital sensor needed to produce spark.

CRANK SHAFT POSITION SENSOR 20002 NISSAN ALTIMA


1st, Nissan had a recall on Crank position sensors for 2002-2006 Altima's. Check with you dealer before you go doing any repairs. You may discover you can get your car repaired at no charge.
NHTSA Campaign ID number :O7V527000
Symptom: Erratic behavior. Stalling and no starts and very difficult to diagnose due to the time frame in which the component actually malfunctions. The warranty should not be limited to the original owner.
I would also need more specifics as to which engine you have so I might assist you in where the location of the sensor is. The Altima had a 4 and a 6 cyl engine offered that year.

Crank shaft sensor


I have 10 years experience in a Nissan dealership and I know without a shadow of a doubt that the Crankshaft Position Sensor is NOT located next tp the crank pulley... it is rather at the other end of the engine near where the transmission bellhousing bolts to the engine block. It is on the side toward the firewall near the bottom. Even if you can get the vehicle on a lift and get under it, you can't really see it... It's more of a feel thing... There was a campaign (recall) on these engines to replace Crank Position and also Cam Postion sensors. Check with your dealer- the campaign might be open. You will need your VIN number when you call.
