1996 nissan maxima check engine light on the mecanic used scaner two code p0500 speed sensor and p1445 manufactory controler auxiliary controls. what can I do? can I fix it?can i buy the parts ? can i...
Firstly, the code p1445 is actually an EVAP Canister Purge Control Valve...The most common problem is a failure of the valve itself, which is located at the top of the plenum chamber. Nissan offers a replacement valve with new bracket and hoses. It is around the $150-$200.00 mark.
But, remember to test the component (valve) first as this suggestion is just to the common problem, but in rare cases, it might be PCM related (water entry, shock etc)
Secondly, the p0500 code is a speed sensor and you can pick these up from autozone.....it provides the road speed for the speedometer and odometer..........if these are working fine, then you might have a wiring issue.
As these are 2 seperate systems, I doubt that they are related.
I hope this helps
