Intermittent electrical problem - 2004 Nissan Altima

You did say, "Any Input", right?

I had this problem with a 1992 Pontaic Bonneville.

Customer brought it in, and after days of diagnosing it drove me crazy. Turned out to be the wiring harness that goes from the camshaft sensor, and crankshaft sensor to the coil pack, had breaks in the wiring.

Everything checked out with a multimeter. All sensors, and related hardware checked out. Seems this wiring harness is doomed to fail after time goes by, because of the location. It's behind the water pump on this V6, 3.8 Liter transverse engine.

NO, I didn't replace it with a GM part! I made my own, and KNOW it will last now!

Such a JOY to get to! I put myself to sleep at night thinking about how much Fun(?) that was!
