Question about 2005 Nissan Altima
My car was put to test on a diagnostics machine and the speed sensor code came up. My car seems to be shifting while I am driving it and also I have to hold my key inorder for my car to crank, when before I could just turn the key and it would crank up.
An engine speed sensor is mounted on the vehicle’s
crankshaft and is usually where the speedometer gets its data, whereas
wheel speed sensors are located individually at each wheel or axle generating
a signal that changes with wheel speed.
It is important that these two speed sensors are always in good working condition to provide accurate data. If one of them gives the wrong signal, control functions of the engine ECU and ABS ECU will be largely compromised. So to have a long-lasting speed sensor, cleaning it every now and then is necessary. Simply wipe off the grime it has accumulated with a towel. Or it’s okay to carefully blow-dry it with compressed air. Anyway, it does not need to be hospital-clean, it just needs to be free from major debris and metal media.
If this didn't do it for you call autozone and they can pull up pictures of it for you and it will show the location to the exact positioning.
Hope This Helps
