Question about 2002 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

Relay, Code, and power outlet probs

So I got my 02 GXE about a month ago. My check engine light came on and the code P1140 popped up. It says its the Intake valve timing control position sensor or Intake valve timing control position solenoid. I have never heard of these and was wondering if this is something simple and easy to access that I can put in myself or if I should take it to a mechanic. My second issue is my car lighter and my secondary outlet by the e break both don't work. I have checked ALL fuses and all are ok. My next step is to replace the accessories relay. The issue I am running into is i am not sure which one it is. There are 3 of them in my car that are the same size, shape, and color. I am fairly certain its one of the 2 under the dash but I need help and input. Also if its not the relay what would be the next thing to check. I just need one of them to work!

Check engine light came on last week. They said it was the heated oxygen sensor. I had it replaced and today the light is on again. The code at Auto Zone is P2096 and P0300. It says P0300/P0301/P0302...


Yes a misfire could cause a false 02 code. As far as why it's misfiring could be a plug and wire issue but hard to say without looking at it

Service engine soon code P1140


Hi, the code P1140 mens there is a problem with the right side cam position sensor. You will need to replace the sensor, this is a common type of problem and make sure the engine oil is clean and full before you replace it because this can also set the codes.
You can use a 5-30w oil, you can use a synthetic oil, change the oil and filter, reset the code and if it comes back on again, then replace the sensor..

Check engine light comes on for about 3-5 seconds then turns off. Doesn't happen all the time. I've changed the PCV valve recently and the O2 sensor about 6-8 months ago.


Check engine comming on even briefly will set a code in the computer's memmory. Take it to AutoZone or another auto parts outlet that will pull codes for free and guide you towards the fix. Ray (garage owner)

Check Engine Light '07 Saturn ION3


well with a check engine light on you really should have it brought somewhere to read the codes stored in your computer it dont make sense to guess at what the code or problem is,since there are several,several codes.it may be a 02 sensor,a evap code,i think a few of the auto parts places have code readers and read for free.

Escort has engine light on, diagnostics say 02 sensor is out, both were replaced, same code for 02 sensor bad shows up, replaced again, same code shows up


MOST OF THE TIME AN 02 CODE DOES NOT MEAN REPLACE 02 SENSOR..SOME AUTO PARTS STORES WILL SCAN YOUR CAR..TELL YOU CODE 02 SO PEOPLE AUTOMATICALLY REPLACE SENSORS...IF YOU CLEAR THE CODES DOES THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COME BACK ON RIGHT AWAY OR DOES IT TAKE A LITTLE TIME... IF IT TAKES A LITTLE TIME THEN YOU HAVE SOME PROBLEMS THAT ARE CAUSING THE EMMISSIONS TO BE OUT OF RANGE.. IF THE LIGHT COMES BACK ON RIGHT AWAY YOU HAVE A PROBLEM IN WIRING HARNESS BETWEEN THE SENSOR AND ECM....MAIN COMPUTER.....OR SECONDLY POSSIBLE PROB IN THE MAIN COMPUTER...GET SOME OF THOSE ANSWERS AND FIND THE EXACT CODE THAT RETURNS THEN GET BACK WITH ME FOR MORE HELP

Nissan Sentra 2001 gxe with code p0420


You will need a new catalytic convertor assembly. Yours is below treshold efficiency in other words its "no good".If you have it replaced, ask the garage/dealer to give you the old one back. Its worth some cash if its full. It doesn't matter thet it failed. They are going after the mesh inside of it and that is worth some $$$$. May not be much , but better than nothing.
