How to reset ECU,Throttle and Accelerator Position Learning


Hi.

Below the procedure to reset ECU,Throttle and to perform Accelerator Position Learning on Nissan. It works on Titan, Altima, Infinity, pathfinder and other models.

ECU Resetting


While performing the procedures below, ensue that you are respecting the times stated. If the steps are not done within the specified times, the module will not reset. You will need to use a watch or a chronograph while performing the procedures.

Car will not accelerate when gas pushed


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

Inspect the cable to the throttle control mechanism under the hood? All all the cables in their proper tracks? Are any cables wrapped the wrong direction, or out of the in-line track?

I would check the pedal position sensor. Do it when it's hot.

  • Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor

    Description & Operation

    A power supply is applied on the Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor (main) power terminal from the PCM. The ground terminal is grounded with PCM. When the accelerator pedal is moved from the idle position to the fully opened position, the resistance between the accelerator pedal position sensor (main) output terminal and ground terminal will increase according to the depression.

Testing

  1. Connect a suitable scan tool to the diagnostic connector. Select APP1 or APP2 percentage.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  3. Measure the voltage at the PCM terminal and ground with connectors connected:

    APP1-8% load or 0.4 volts with the accelerator pedal releasedAPP1-60% load or 3.0 volts with the accelerator pedal depressedAPP2 -8% load or 0.4 volts with the accelerator pedal releasedAPP2 -60% load or 3.0 volts with the accelerator pedal depressed
  4. If any check above does not meet the specifications, check connectors and wiring between the sensor and PCM. If ok, replace PCM.
  5. If the measured values are outside the standard value range, or if the load % and/or voltage does not change smoothly, replace the sensor.

I just recently purchased a 2010 Toyota Highlander Hybrid (2 months ago). Toyota says there is noproblem with this model accelerating unexpectedly and sticking. It now seems to be happening yo Toyota Pruis...


Both toyota prius accelerator cases that I know of have been reported as flukes. the accellaration procces for the fuel and the hybrid models are completely different. plus the sticky pedal finding is a buy product from intense study from camry and the lexus version of camrys unattended excellaration probem, the sticky pedal will just not let of gas properly and also to be extremely rare not accelerating. Plus the hybrid versions are made in japan and if the did have the same pedal as a gas it would be made by denso the japanese pedal manufacturer, that has a heavier pedal it even has two more bolts compared to the american manufactured pedal that has been recalled. I personally build the highlander fuel version in Indiana It is an excellent vehicle i aswell own a 2010 that me an my family love youve got a great vehicle dont let abusers of a problem scare you of it.
