i think it's the starter. On most nissans, the starter and the crank position sensor are close to each other. Some nissans have 4 position sensors, between crank sensor, crank angle sensor, cam position sensor, and sensor sensing sensor, oh and cam angle sensor. Oh wait, maybe it's a bad ground. Nope, gotta be the staerter.
The crank sensor is located behind the crank pulley on the 3.8 liter. The crank pulley must first be removed. A 15/16" socket, three very long 8 x 1.0 bolts (pretty sure that is the size, some large washers, and a crank pulley pulley will be required.
With the crank pulley removed mark the bracket where the old crank sensor is located so that the new sensor can be placed in exactly the same position. Failure to do this will result in the new sensor and/or the crank pulley being severely damaged.
Then it's as simple as removing the old sensors and installing the new one.
Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.
If the crank sensor circuit is malfunctioning, then that is your problem. The code does not mean that you must replace your crank sensor. (sometimes it means this, sometimes it does not) The code means that either the crank sensor CIRCUIT is out of range or the crank sensor cannot SYNCRONIZE with the cam sensor. There is a whole lot more to diagnosing a crank sensor circuit than simply replacing the crank sensor. Proper diagnostic procedures need to be followed to locate the exact cause of the problem.
Does this pertain to the Crank Shaft or the Ignition sensor? I've never heard of a crank sensor... I'll check...
I found this from a guy on another website..."It does however have a crank sensor and if you look at the lower crank pulley just to the back of the pulley and go around the pulley you should find the sensor mounted on a bracket. You should see what appears as a sprocket with widely spaced teeth on the engine side of the pulley. This "sprocket" so to speak is what the crank sensor "reads". I believe that the crank sensor is the only sensor used for engine timing. "
