    can there b more than one code and how do i clear the knock sensor code?

  • Glenn O'Donal Dec 13, 2012

    Yes than can alot more than one code.....If you clear the knock sensor code out you will clear all the others out at the same time. If you have a Canoby scan tool you can clear just that one code. But if you dont then you can pull the ECM fuse and it will clear all the codes out. Pll the fuse out and then put it back in about 10 secounds it will reset your computor.

It must be giving you a code as to what is going on here. It sounds like you have a bad silenoid to me. It will be inside ya trans on the valve body. Check and see what codes are comming up on it.

    i got a code for the knock sensor,does that make sense to you?

  • Glenn O'Donal Dec 12, 2012

    Not at all..... it doesnt have anything to do with your trans and wont stop it from shifting.

SOURCE: 1998 Pathfinder - Shifting Gears

Could be a CV (Constant Velocity) joint, but they usually show as clicking noise when turning at the limits. Possible bad engine/transaxle mounts or bad modulator valve or leaking / disconnected vacuum line to same or manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor. If the transmission is computer controlled, the computer replaces the modulator valve which controls when & how firmly or gently gear changes are made... and, of course, it could just be good old-fashioned wear & tear. A tranny fluid/filter service sometimes works wonders in this area also.
As always, a reputable automotive tech is your best source of what's happening with your problem. Good luck!

SOURCE: Overdrive button on shift knob doesn't work

Most likely the turning on and off might have trigered or burned out your relay switch located in the front of your engine. The overdrive button on your nissan was only ment to be used sporadically and not as a stick vehicle ( According to your expression ). You can purchase this relay in your nearest nissan dealer. Good luck.

SOURCE: no reverse gear - auto trans

Hi mjpgd,
I have the same problem on my 96 Pathfinder. I just spoke with a mechanic who said this is most often due to a knicked seal in the rear part of the transmission. The leak results in pressure loss, making the system reluctant to shift into reverse. He said the fix is replacing the seal. The part lists at approx $200 Canadian ($190 USD), but unfortunately it takes lots of labor. The whole transmission needs to be removed and taken apart to replace the seal. The total bill is esitmated at $1500 Canadian. Youch. I'm not sure if I'll proceed with the repair, given the age of the vehicle.

Overdrive Control Switch
The overdrive control switch is located in the instrument
panel. In the On position, automatic shifts
into fourth gear overdrive will occur. In the Off position,
the switch overrides the powertrain control module
preventing a shift to overdrive fourth gear range.
The switch has an indicator light that illuminates
when overdrive is turned off. The switch also resets
when the ignition key is turned to the OFF position
so that the automatic overdrive feature is restored.
The use of fault codes is employed to help diagnose
the electronic components that operate the overdrive
unit and torque converter clutch.

2000 volkswagen beetle will not shift into overdrive but runs good in all other gears. It shifts smoothly but overdrive never engages


sounds like an electrical problem with the transmission ...these transmissions are fully electronic and the gears are engaged by servo valves these are controlled by the computer.... if there is any problem with the engine or a few other things it will be put into safe mode and it wont engage overdrive ..it may need to be scanned to see if any codes exist in the auto trans ecm..

Rpm's going 4500 before shifting to second gear second and third are ok whether in overdrive or not .year ago was in accident trans run two quarts low for one hour.trans feels good just delay on shift from...


Torque converter is probraly going bad, the automatic gear selector having trouble seeking or going into another gear unless high rpm to select it out to another gear. Could also be your 1gear is getting bad. you may need to take it to the shop as in the long term, it can damage more. You could check to see if fluid is up to level too, as this does happen when it's low in transmission fluid.

I have a 1995 GMC Jimmy with auto trans., it wont shift into 2nd gear only shifts into drive when I get up to 2700 RPM and let off the gas and wont shift into overdrive at all. Does anyone know what causes...


Your going to have to get the Jimmy scaned before youhurt the transmission, It sounds like it's on a Limp mode which can range from a tune up to a bad ground. Good luck.

Not shfiting right


eric sounds like you have a electronic trans mission or computer controled trans.is the check engine light on ?

second it sounds like your trans is in limp in mode ( only has second gear).

the hard shifts is not good news.

somtimes when the controller sets a code that forces limp in it has to be cleared.

dis-connect the battery for a few min. then try it again see if it shifts but be easy on it and make sure fluid level is good.

if it it still messes up CHA CHING hehe i'll fix it fer 1000 bucks
