Question about 2003 Nissan Maxima
I have a 2003 Nissan maxima. From time to time when you start the car it starts and I get no response out of the engine. It sits in idle and when you press on the gas pedal it does not move. The tachometer stays at idle position. I have to cut the car off and play with the gas pedal for about five minutes and then restart it and it is fine. we flushed the fuel system and cleaned the throttle body and it seemed to help briefly but a check engine light and the problem returned.I got a code of 1133 which I have had several people tell me means different things. The guy that flushed the throttle body says its a throttle release spring but I know that the computer will not give a code for that. I have someone else that tells me its a mass air flow sensor tricking the computer into thinking its not getting air right.I had another tell me the entire throttle body which has the computer control attached would need replacing.Has anyone had this issue before I spend a fortune replacing sensors and switches. I personaly think that it is something causing the throttle control to stick open and then when I shake it by hitting the gas pedal it gets unstuck.
I discovered that its the throttle body sensor. Its not sensing the postion of the foot pedal. The throttle body has a sensor that is linked to your gas pedal via a cable. The spring that the repair man mentioned could be the issue. The sensor then communicates to the computer the position and then computer then applies fuel, the mass air sensor then will communicate to the computer and the computer will then allow more or less air to fuel ratio. So if your stomping on the gas and there is not any response, then your throttle body sensor is most likely going out.

the dash voltage egulator probably went bad. First,check the battery & make sure you have 12 volts,not running. Check it again running & you should see about 14.5 volts. If that's good,I'd replace the guage assembly.

Its not a clock its just calculates the time it took to make trip. The display at the bottom of the tachometer area is a "TRIP COMPUTER". It shows OUTSIDE AIR TEMPERATURE, DISTANCE TO EMPTY, AVERAGE FUEL COMSUMPTION, AVERAGE SPEED and JOURNEY TIME. Press the "TRIP" button on the steering wheel to change through the modes. Holding the "TRIP" button for more than one second will reset the mode.
