Question about 1997 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

We have a 97 XE pickup. Took it to a dealer because the fist mechanic reported no signal coming from the ECD??? The engine control device? Its a computer based system that gives a signal to allow the engine to start. Dealer insisted on changing plugs and distributor to no benifit - still doesnt start. How can I point to this ECD to question them about whether they checked this component , how can they prove it to me and how do I fix it if its not working???

They can easily show you that the ECD is not working by using their computer diagnostics tools. The ECD aka. ECU (electronic control unit) manages your engine. If the ECD is busted the computer diagnostics tool will easily determine the problem. If your dealership doesn't have computer diagnostics, you might want to bring your car to another shop with computer diagnostics to have it checked... never agree to whatever your mechanic says... always get yourself a second opinion..
