The P1320 code is essentially a coil primary voltage problem. This is traceable using a labscope or accurate DVOM and perhaps you can isolate one or two coils that still work but are close to failure...but there is a nissan service message recommending replacement of ALL coils with updated/improved models to prevent this type of failure. TCS/SLIP is traction control. Most likely you have a speed sensor issue. Be aware, some vehicles can falsely illuminate TCS because of low tire pressure in a single wheel.

I still have the same code on the car coming on. what else can it be?

Disconnect the battery over night to reset the engine code. If it comes back, then the problem has not been repaired. The P1320 code means that there is problem with the "Ignition Coil" or the wire to the ignition coil. Good luck!

I have a code computer and the troubled code is p1320 manufacturer specific power tarin. what do this mean?

ahh yes. you got a tricky one. this code is very misleading because the definition of p1320 is the ignition signal primary which alot of owners have popping up after changing a starter or something of the liking.
the fix is replacing your ignition coils. this is a common problem on the 2000-2001 maximas. this i know from experience of being nissan tech and ex-maxima owner. if you are handy you can order the coils for about $325 dollars and change the coils yourself and you will save hundreds of dollars as the dealerships will charge $600-$750 dollars. this should clear up any any hesitation and misfiring(shaking). please rate 4 thumbs up if helpful.

What is P1320 manufacturer code

I found a thread on relating to the P1320 error code. Specifically, 2000-2001 Maxima's have had this problem. It seams as though everybody agrees that the error is caused by the ignition coils. We've never had ours changed, so I'm doing that. Nissan was going to charge me approx $600 (plus tax) for parts and another $180 for labor. The job take a whole 30 minutes to replace the 6 of them, and you can get the 6 ignition coils at O'reilly's for $325. I changed three last night and the car seems to be doing better. I'll replace the other 3 tonight and see what happens.

Also, when testing the car, the car seems to "shake". I'm not sure if this is related to the P1320, but if we turn off the AC the "shaking" stops.

Hope helps (remember rated this).
