SOURCE: code P1320 what do it mean

consider your fuel injecter, if the fuel injecter isn't good the needle that allows the spray of gas into the cylinder will stick and will not allow the proper amount of gas fire into the cylinder. that is likely the problem if you have already changed the spark plugs, knock sensor, etc... another thing to likely look at is your MAF sensor. though im pretty sure it might be your injector

SOURCE: p1320 trouble code plus

The P1320 code is essentially a coil primary voltage problem. This is traceable using a labscope or accurate DVOM and perhaps you can isolate one or two coils that still work but are close to failure...but there is a nissan service message recommending replacement of ALL coils with updated/improved models to prevent this type of failure. TCS/SLIP is traction control. Most likely you have a speed sensor issue. Be aware, some vehicles can falsely illuminate TCS because of low tire pressure in a single wheel.

SOURCE: 98 MAXIMA P1320 WHAT IS THE CAUSE

Nissan had a lot of problems with ignition coils and the wiring harness that goes to them. You must inspect the wiring very very carefully and if that does not reveal anything, you can get new updated coils, either from nissan or an independent auto parts store. They are expensive and different front and back.

SOURCE: what does the code p1320 (ignition

this code could be set by either crank or camm sensor both of which are responsible for the firing of the coils. you need to have it scanned to verify which one is malfunctioning.

98 mercury villager no start , code P 1320


Here is the entire description for the code -

When is the code detected?When the ignition signal in the primary circuit is not sent to Engine Control Module (ECM) during engine cranking or running.

Symptoms- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

P1320 NISSAN Description The ignition signal from the Engine Control Module (ECM) is sent to and amplified by the power transistor. The power transistor turns on and off the ignition coil primary circuit. This on-off operation induces the proper high voltage in the coil secondary circuit
Possible causes - Faulty power transistor unit built into ignition coil
- Ignition primary circuit is open or shorted (circuit to ignition coils)
- Ignition primary circuit poor electrical connection (circuit to ignition coils)
- Faulty ignition system condenser
- Crankshaft position sensor circuit

help.png Help with this Tech notes The most common cause that will trigger the P1320 code is the ignition coils, one or more ignition coils may have failed. Even tough the coils may be working OK, the resistance for one or more of the coils is greater or smaller that what the Engine Control Module (ECM) is expecting. Measuring the resistance with the coil out of the vehicle may not show any failures, usually the coil fails under heavy conditions (hard acceleration) or certain temperatures.

The P1320 code means that there is problem with the "Ignition Coil" or the wire to the ignition coil. For some models without individual ignition coils the Ignition Coil is inside the distributor and the distributor need to be replaced to fix the problem.

Loosing primary ignition


Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P1320 is a "manufacturer-specific" OBD fault code defined by Nissan in this case simply as "Ignition Signal Fault".

This is a kind of "catch-all" primary ignition fault code. It is common for this code to set along with other codes.
Service information from the manufacturer states that if there are any other ignition codes present (like P0340) service those codes FIRST before trying to fix this code.

DTC P1320 sets when the ECM does not receive an ignition primary signal during engine cranking or running.

The possible causes of this code include:
> Open or shorted primary ignition circuit. (wiring)
> Defective power transistor
> Defective resistor
> Faulty Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor

The location of some parts and the routing of the wiring depends on if the vehicle is equipped with the 4-cylinder or the V-6 engine. (nice-to-know information - ESPECIALLY when you are asking for help getting your engine running correctly).

On either engine, the power transistor and the CMP sensor is part of the distributor assembly.

On the 4-cylinder engine, the resistor is on the left front side of the engine next to the distributor.
On the V-6 engine, the resistor is on the top right side of the engine (see diagram)

The diagnosis of this code must include checking both the power side and ground side of the primary ignition circuits to determine the cause. The wiring for each of the available engines varies slightly. I recommend going to alldatadiy.com where you can subscribe to the specific service information for your vehicle and have access to step-by-step instructions on how to diagnose this code as well as wiring diagrams for the vehicle. The small annual fee is well worth it if you do your own work on your vehicle.

Timing the cams and crank with a belt


  1. Note: Electronic Ignition engine timing is entirely controlled by the PCM. Electronic Ignition engine timing is NOT adjustable. Do not attempt to check base timing. You will receive false readings.

The CKP sensor is used to indicate crankshaft position and speed by sensing a missing tooth on a pulse wheel mounted to the crankshaft. The CMP sensor is used by the COP Integrated EI System to identify top dead center of compression of cylinder 1 to synchronize the firing of the individual coils.
  1. The PCM uses the CKP signal to calculate a spark target and then fires the coil pack(s) to that target shown in Figure 51. The PCM uses the CMP sensor not shown in Figure 51 on COP Integrated EI Systems to identify top dead center of compression of cylinder 1 to synchronize the firing of the individual coils.
  1. The coils and coil packs receive their signal from the PCM to fire at a calculated spark target. Each coil within the pack fires two spark plugs at the same time. The plugs are paired so that as one fires during the compression stroke the other fires during the exhaust stroke. The next time the coil is fired the situation is reversed. The COP system fires only one spark plug per coil and only on the compression stroke.

    The PCM acts as an electronic switch to ground in the coil primary circuit. When the switch is closed, battery positive voltage (B+) applied to the coil primary circuit builds a magnetic field around the primary coil. When the switch opens, the power is interrupted and the primary field collapses inducing the high voltage in the secondary coil windings and the spark plug is fired. A kickback voltage spike occurs when the primary field collapses. The PCM uses this voltage spike to generate an Ignition Diagnostic Monitor (IDM) signal. IDM communicates information by pulsewidth modulation in the PCM.
  1. The PCM processes the CKP signal and uses it to drive the tachometer as the Clean Tach Out (CTO) signal.

The ignition system consists of an ignition coil, spark plug wires and spark plugs.
The crankshaft position sensor signal is the basis for ignition timing calculations. The alternating voltage signal from the crankshaft position sensor is digitized by a pulse former within the powertrain control module. This digitized signal is then used to position the closing time of the primary circuit of the ignition coil.
Ignition timing is determined by the powertrain control module in response to engine operating conditions based on stored data tables or maps. Once ignition timing has been determined, the powertrain control module interrupts the current to the primary circuit of the ignition coil thus triggering the ignition spark which is supplied to the cylinders through the spark plug wires and spark plugs.
The ignition coils are triggered by the powertrain control module in pairs (cylinders 1 and 5, cylinders 4 and 3 and cylinders 2 and 6) sending one ignition spark to the firing cylinder and one ignition spark to the corresponding cylinder on the exhaust stroke. This ensures that any unburnt fuel residues remaining in the cylinder on the exhaust stroke are re - ignited to provide cleaner exhaust emissions.

Integrated Electronic Ignition System The Integrated Electronic Ignition (EI) System consists of a crankshaft position (CKP) sensor, coil pack(s), connecting wiring, and PCM. The Coil On Plug (COP) Integrated EI System uses a separate coil for each spark plug and each coil is mounted directly onto the plug. The COP Integrated EI System eliminates the need for spark plug wires but does require input from the camshaft position (CMP) sensor.
