The best way is to use a scan tool to clear the codes, that will turn off the light, also disconnecting the battery over night may work, but no completely sure about that, it varies from year to year.

SOURCE: Washed eng. This morning car was fine now at about

P1361: top dead center sensor circuit. The crank positioning sensor and cam positioning sensor are the two components that you want to look at. One of the two parts are cracked and the water is causing a short. Once it dries out, it should go back to normal but you do need to replace the faulty sensor/s.

there might be a problem in your fuel line. try buying a can of sea foam [Red and white bottle.Available at any auto place. Around $9]. pouring about half in the tank and the other half thru a line in your brake booster or another vacuum line. the line will be under the hood to the very top right. it should be black, round, and two lines coming out of it. do this with the car running so maybe have someone else hold the gas to about 1500 RPM. Slowly drip the sea foam in until it almost dies then put your thumb on the line to keep it running. keep doing that until the can is almost or fully empty. Let the car sit for about 5 mionutes then start the car and keep the RPMs to about 2 grand. There will be smoke fromt the exhaust SO DONT WORRY! Just keep on the gas until the smokes clears. If that doesnt help let me know!

How do I fix the codes on a 1996 nissan maxima?

code p 0500 is the VSS ( vehicle speed sensor)
code p 0600 is the CAN bus--malfunction
code p 1447 is the EVAP system
the car is 21 years old and there will be more problems that what you have been told about
The price that you would expect to pay is junk yard value and anything else would be a bottomless money pit for you

Code 1447 nissan sentra

P1447 purge volume control solenoid valve
Usually charcoal canister has ruptured and vehicle needs canister.
entire system will have charcoal pellets in it. pull the hose at solenoid and see. solenoid can sometimes be cleaned by tapping and blowing with your mouth not compressed air. sometimes needs to be replaced. remove canister and remove pressure sensor(by canister and blow out charcoal with compressed air. wear safety glasses. you will need to blow from both ends several times. don't give up at first nothing comes out and when you pull air gun away charcoal comes out on your hands from pressure release

My 1997 Nissan Maxima check engine light comes on only on the second cycle after clearing the trouble code. Car runs good. No misfires or driveability problems. What the heck does is this all about? Could...

It could be a bad coil, nissan recommends uses there coils as aftermarket coils dont work, they will fire the cylinder but turn on the check engine light, you must use nissan coils, if you can give me the code that come up i can help you turn light off and solve the problem. good day

P1447 and knock sensor code both knock sensor and evap purge valve are in perfect working order and vacuum hose are correct routing and no crack but engine light is still on please help cant pass...

If your map sensor is bad, it will also cause p1447 to illuminate.
You can check the air passage continuity on the map sensor/solenoid valve.
Provide the switch with 12 volts, please note which pin is positive and negative.

Check air passage continuity between A-B, A-C. My manual shows that if there is no continuity between A-B but there is between A-C then your map sensor/solenoid valve is bad and should be replaced.
It is listed as a cause for the p1447 light.
I hope this helps
