Question about 2001 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Where is the computer located on a 2001 nissan maxima?

The dealer said the computer is blown. I need to replace it. Having problems with fast on-off idle and way too much fuel consumption. They said its the air flow control which I had replaced but now they say the computer is no good. I want to get one from the junk yard, and need to know where it is to replace it.

    Surely someone out there knows where the computer is for this model, and how to get to it. I had trouble finding this information out by google and ask, so hopefully this forum will help me with this problem.

    In the 2001 the computer is supposed to be in the dashboard somewhere, but I want to know exactly where and how to get to it. There is nothing under the seats except the stuff to make them go back and forth.

Let's try the cheapest fix first. Change the fuel filter out. You'll probably see a brown looking goop in the gas, This is an "ETHANOL" problem. Read up on it. These are all related to so many idle and acceleration problems. Buy a can of SEAFOAM at the parts house. Fill up tank with Premium and add SEAFOAM. Then change filter out before 500 more miles. This should clean out the water and the goop and the carbon build up caused by the ETHANOL. Add a can of SEAFOAM every 3000 mile after that to a full tank of gas. It will keep your emissions,engine, and fuel lines clean. And will keep your car from line freeze up. Good luck.

SOURCE: 95 nissan maxima 3.0. have replaced knock sensor

I would have the charging system checked for over-voltage and AC ripple. There maybe a hidden wire harness problem if the charging system is okay. Wiggle test the wire harness while the engine is running to help locate the problem area. That is way to many parts replaced.

SOURCE: 2000 nissan maxima misfires on cold start repaced

Try spraying an aerosol oil around the intake manifold and around any vacuum lines and connections with the engine running. If you hear a change in the engine speed than you've got a vacuum leak. Thank you, Dana

Can a iac for 2001 nissan maxima be cleaned?


Get a second opinion. That is some crazy money to spend, but you should have expected that from a luxury model like the Maxima. I am surprised that a 2001 model would need the IAC programmed, but it could be. I would want a second opinion.

2001 Nissan Maxima computer fried, any recalls?


Iac valves short out and fry the computer. Be sure to check and replace the Idle air control valve if needed. If not replaced the computer will fry. Generally it costs less to program a used one than get a new one.
