Question about 1996 Nissan 200SX
I had the speed sensor replaced on my 1996 Nissan 200SX SE. The check engine light came back on. I took it back to a different shop and they told me that the computer had not been clear out completely. They also stated that they could not find anything wrong with the speed sensor or the transmission itself. They did say if the light came back on, it might be an electrical problem. They cleared out the codes and about 2 weeks later the check engine light came back on. The car drives fine. I am not having any shifting problems. Has anyone had this problem? I know electrical work can be pretty expensive.
It is possible that this code can be caused by the speedometer head itself. The signal from the speed sensor is processed in the speedometer and then sent to the ECM. Check the two screws on the back of the speedometer to see if they are loose. If so retighten and drive to see if the check engine light comes back on. If they are tight, replace the speedometer assembly( I think you gave to purchase the entire meter assembly). If the light still comes on, which is unlikely, you will need to check the wire going to the ECM.
