Why is airbag light flashing?


According to the Nissan service manual the procedure to Reset the Air Bag System Warning Light is as follows:
1. Turn ignition switch from OFF to ON.
2. Air Bag warning light is on for 7 seconds and turns off, turn the ignition switch OFF within 1 second after the light goes out.
3. After ignition switch is turned OFF, wait for more than 3 seconds.
4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 twice. (Perform 3 times in total.)
5. Turn Ignition switch ON.
6. The SRS light should be reset.
If the warning light can not be reset I'd suggest you contact your Nissan dealer for more information and a proper diagnostics check as there be a fault with the airbag system.

Red light car symbol and engine not starting


looks like the immobilizer has been activated or the ignition key you are using either is wrong or lost the program and can not communicate with the ignition switch by not giving signal to start. Better to apply to an expert to help you.

Hello! I'll need the trouble code to fix your vehicle...Below is procedure with a code list...Guru...saailer

Remove the trim panels in front of the center console. Locate the engine computer attached to a floor-mounted bracket on the transmission tunnel between the console and the firewall.

  • Turn the diagnostic mode selector, located in a round opening on the side of the engine computer, until it stops. Observe the small red and green LED lights on the side of the computer next to the mode selector. They will flash to indicate the modes, with a pause between each mode. One quick flash is mode one, two quick flashes is mode two and so on. When the light flashes indicate mode three, quickly turn the mode selector counterclockwise until it stops. You have entered mode three diagnostics.

For example, if the red light flashes two times and the green light flashes seven times, this would indicate code 27.

    Nissan pulsar 1987 n13 the ECM light came one and the car cut out and won't start again and I need to know where the ECM is


    Hi, the computer is under the passenger's seat. Code extraction procedure is pasted below.


    READING CODES Modes will not switch while the engine is running. The ECM automatically switches to MODE I when the ignition is switchedOFF.
    1984-90 Vehicles With Dual LED System
    The self-diagnostic system has 5 modes. To switch modes, switch the ignition ON and use a screwdriver to turn the mode select switch through the access port on the ECM. The inspection lights will begin to flash. When the desired mode has been entered, turn the screwdriver fully counterclockwise. The red LED and green LED perform different functions in different modes.
    Mode I-
    This is the normal vehicle operating mode. The green LED will indicate loop status. If the green LED is not blinking when the engine is running, the vehicle is in open loop, or the HO 2 S, O 2 S, or sensor circuit has a malfunction. If the green LED is blinking, the vehicle is in closed loop. If a malfunction takes place, the red LED and the MIL will glow, indicating a malfunction has occurred.
    Mode II-
    Both the red LED and green LED are used to monitor mixture ratio feedback control. The green LED will function as described in MODE I. If vehicle is in open loop, the red LED and green LED will remain on or off. In order for results to be valid, vehicle must be in closed loop. In closed loop, the red LED remains off if the system is running rich, comes on if the system is running lean, and blinks at the same time with the green LED if system is within 5% of the exact air/fuel ratio.
    Mode III
    -When this mode is accessed, the codes stored in the ECM's memory will be flashed by the green LED and red LED on the side of the ECM. The red LED will light first. This is the first digit of the trouble code; the green LED will flash next, showing the second digit of the code. For example: 2 flashes of the red LED followed by 1 flash of the green LED corresponds to Code 21.
    Mode IV-
    This mode is used for checking the throttle plate (TP) switch, starter, and vehicle speed switch status. When the TP switch or starter switch is activated, the red LED will briefly flash as the status changes. For VSS status, the green LED will remain off when vehicle speed is less than 12 mph (19 km/h) and come on when vehicle speed is greater than 12 mph (19 km/h).
    Mode V-
    This mode represents a real-time diagnostic test of the crank angle sensor, ignition signal and the mass airflow signal. The malfunction code will be displayed only when the malfunction occurs and will not be stored in memory. The output code will appear as a single or short string of pulses. Count the number of pulses for the malfunction code.



    1 pulse-CMP sensor signal lost or noise in signal 2 pulses-MAF Sensor signal abnormal 3 pulses-Fuel pump circuit shorted or open 4 pulses-Ignition signal lost

    Nissan Maxima 2004 won't accelerate. It runs well up to 2000rpm then will not go any faster. The engine fault light is on. The error seems to be related to the airflow intake. A mechanic who was too busy...


    1st, you should get the Engine Controls (EC) section of the service manual. You can download it HERE

    Now you need get the diagnostic codes from your vehicle. The procedure is:

    HOW TO SWITCH DIAGNOSTIC TEST MODE
    NOTE:

    - It is better to count the time accurately with a clock.
    - It is impossible to switch the diagnostic mode when an accelerator pedal position sensor circuit
    has a malfunction.
    - Always ECM returns to Diagnostic Test Mode 1 after ignition switch is turned OFF.
    How to Set Diagnostic Test Mode II (Self-diagnostic Results)
    (key in the on position, engine off)
    1. Confirm that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch ON and wait 3 seconds.
    2. Repeat the following procedure quickly five times within 5 seconds.
    a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal.
    b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
    3. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 10 seconds until the MIL starts blinking.
    4. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
    ----------------
    The check engine light will then flash the 4 digits of the code. (refer to (EC) page 68)

    Or you can go to an autozone and ask them to scan your vehicle for codes. They will do it for free.

    Once you have the diagnostic codes, you can find the code info and diagnostic procedures in the (EC) manual.

    Oil maintenece light is on. Oil level is good. Could a clogged filter make this light go on?


    This should only be indicating time for an oil change. Now, if the red, check engine light comes on, then you have an oil/engine problem.

    Possibly the maintenance light wasn't reset when the last change was done. If you don't have the owners manual to check, I found a referenced method (below) to reset it through AMSOIL synthetic oil products. Good Luck

    To reset Engine Oil light. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the Change Engine Oil light is flashing, the system is reset. The light will flash for up to 30 seconds or until the ignition is turned off. If the light comes on again and stays on for 30 seconds at the next ignition cycle, it did not reset. You will need to reset the system again.

    I use nissan sentra 2002 my service engine soon is on for 2weeks


    Finding out what the code number is, is the first step.

    You can find this easily by watching the blinking yellow check engine light and counting the number of flashes for each of the numbers in the 4 digit fault code.

    To do this without a code reader; sit in the car and turn the ignition on (do not start the car) and after 3 seconds push the accelerator pedal all the way down to the floor and release fully (pull your floor mat out from under the gas pedal). After the 3 seconds, do this 5 times quickly, in less than 5 seconds. Then hold the accelerator pedal down for exactly 7 seconds and release it fully. Then within 10 seconds, the yellow check engine light will begin to blink.

    The numbers of blinks will go from 1 to 10. A 10 will represent a "0".

    For example; 0303 would be 1st number is 10 flashes, short pause then 3 flashes, short pause then 10 flashes, short pause and 3 flashes. It will repeat this again if there is only one fault code. There could be other fault codes and you would count those in the same way.

    The 0303 code means that you have a cylinder misfire in the #3 cylinder. This could be a fouled plug, poor connection between the plug and the coil or something else.

    To erase the code hold the gas pedal down while the yellow light is blinking for about 15 seconds then turn off the ingnition. Code will now be reset and light will go out.

    If for some reason you do not get the yellow light to start blinking, tturn off the ignition and try it again. You may wish to get a watch with a second hand as the time is critical as to the seconds between steps.

    After you find out what codes you have, send back an email and we can document the actual codes and the problems you are having.
