Question about Cars & Trucks
How do i fix these problems myself. i have 67000 miles on my vehicle.
P1572 is a faulty brake switch ,,,, if its faulty the engine control unit thinks you are braking and it cuts down power,,,,

Hi the code P0139 is Bank 1 sensor 2 lambda sensor fault ,possible wiring or sensor fault even if you replace the sensor you need to have the MIL lamp turned off by a Diagnostic machine,it is possible you have another fault such as poor Catalytic converter efficency giving the same fault code ,Would recomend you get the car checked and read the "live" data as the car see`s it to make an accurate diagnosis and cure

P0430 - Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 2)
Basically this means that the oxygen sensor downstream of the catalytic converter on bank 2 is detecting that the converter is not working as efficiently as it should be (according to specs). It is part of the vehicle emissions system.
Symptoms: You will likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a rough/hard idle when cold.
Causes: A code P0430 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* The catalytic converter is no longer functioning properly
* An oxygen sensor is not reading (functioning) properly
* There is an exhaust leak
* First, inspect for exhaust leaks.
* Next step is to measure the voltage at the oxygen sensor on Bank 2. In fact, it would be a good idea to test each oxygen O2 sensor while you're at it.
One thing to note is that many vehicle manufacturers offer a longer warranty on emissions-related parts. So if you have a newer car but it's out of it's bumper-to-bumper warranty, there still may be warranty on this type of problem. Many manufacturers give a five year, unlimited mileage warranty on these items. It's worth checking into.
P1572 - ASCD Brake Switch Circuit Malfunction
For check ASCD BRAKE SWITCH POWER SUPPLY
- Turn ignition switch OFFDisconnect ASCD brake switch (2) harness connector Stoplamp switch (1) Turn ignition switch ON
- Check voltage between ASCD brake switch terminal and ground under the following conditions with CONSULT-II or testerCONDITION VOLTAGE Battery voltage Approx. 0V
More than likely the brake pedal cancellation switch is bad.
Keep us updated.

About DTC P1800, I suggest check the harness and verify it is plugged in and still functioning.
Also, try checking your vac tubes to verify that they are not reversed. Also read this TSB with details about correct diagnostic: DTC P1800 VIAS CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE
The VIAS control solenoid valve cuts the intake manifold vacuum signal for power valve control. It responds to ON/OFF signals from the ECM. When the solenoid is off, the vacuum signal from the intake manifold is cut. When the ECM sends an ON signal the coil pulls the plunger downward and feeds the vacuum signal to the power valve actuator.
DTC detecting condition:
• An excessively low or high voltage signal is sent to ECM through the valve
• Harness or connectors (The solenoid valve circuit is open or shorted.)
• VIAS control solenoid valve
Will need replaced the solenoid valve (P/N - 149558J10A). The valve is located under the engine cover. It's a Nissan only part so you have to order from the dealer, either online or in person. It's cheaper online. Check this sample Nissan engine location (click image for zoom)...
DTC P1147 - Bank1 Sensor 2 O2 sensor maximum voltage monitoring
Component Description: The heated oxygen sensor 2, after three way catalyst, monitors the oxygen level in the exhaust gas on each bank.
Even if switching characteristics of the heated oxygen sensor 1 are shifted, the air fuel ratio is controlled to stoichiometric, by the signal from the heated oxygen sensor 2.
This sensor is made of ceramic zirconia. The zirconia generates voltage from approximately 1V in richer conditions to 0V in leaner conditions. Under normal conditions the heated oxygen sensor 2 is not used for engine control operation.
DTC detecting condition: The maximum voltage from the sensor is not reached to the specified voltage.
Harness or connectors (The sensor circuit is open or shorted)
Heated oxygen sensor 2
Majority of cases this is either a faulty O2 sensor, or short/open in wiring harness. Bank1 sensor2 is the rear O2 sensor on the passenger (right) hand side (click image for zoom):
Here is simple test with voltmeter to test O2 sensor. If it fails test, replace sensor. If not, then you will have to start tracing the wiring harness for a short/open in it (click for zoom):
And here additional details: DTC P1147 O2 Sensor
Keep us updated.

P0572....Cruise Control/Brake Switch A Circuit Low, which i dont think is your problem so i would hazard and say that something serious has gone wrong like the ECU unit and its thrown the immobilisor on so i think you will have to have the vehicle taken to a dealer and be prepared for a nice big bill
