Re: code what does it mean
P2302 has to deal with your ignition systems, I hope is something basic, with this code I seen much worse and can be very complicated issue. For basic, I would check all your plugs and wires and coil make sure they are in good and working properly; have the coil tested. if those check out, then check your cam sensor, it can be faulty. what cam sensor does it senses the cam turning and send info to the ecu, ecu than tell the coil to disperse pulse of sparks to the plugs.

most likely the IAC valve is bad , which damaged the ECM also. Have replaced couple of ECMs for this code in 2003 pathfinder. P0507 is an ICS code , which is linked to faulty IAC valve., but the ECM is an issue also, most likely. Find ECM on ebay. and replace the IAC valve with new one.
Wait one minute, your model pathfinder also has giant recall for strut towers rotting out, so have your local dealer check your VIN for the campaign. if the car is rotted beyond repair in certain areas by the struts, Nissan will buy the car back and give you money for it. Check the vin with your local dealer.
The default gear for your caravan when there is a transmission issue is second gear. If it is stuck in second gear than the check engine light should be on. The OBDII code stored in the PCM should be a P0700. This code is to let you know there are transmission codes stored in the TCM. You will need a high end scan tool to get those codes.
Once you know those codes you will have a much better idea of what is causing the transmission problems.
Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!
I would take it to the local Advance Auto - and Auto Zone - [ second opinions come in handy] - ask them to run the codes -- they will know what this means.
If there is a code follow up - if not I would just as a part of iliminating things - remove the negative battery cable for 30 minutes - after reinstalling it - observe the light. There may be a recall too - take down the vin number and ask the local dealer if there have been any recalls or service bulletins
If it where me I would start considering the only common part between all these effected systems. The ECM although the dealer should be able to say for sure. They have a machine that actually replaces the ECM and can simulate all the sensors. I had to say it but you may need to take it to a dealer for complete diagnostics and repair since the machine is a dealer only type machine.
If the van is out of warranty, take it to a non-dealer for an estimate. Ask your neighbors or co-workers for recommendations on a local repair shop. Dealer hourly repair cost is typically much higher than other repair shops....compressors are not cheap and replacment is labor intensive, but you could save some money taking it somewhere else.
Hi, this light is signaling an issue the concerns the state of a failed sensor or electrical component. I recommend taking this vehicle to a dealership or local mechanic as soon as possible for a diagnostic run on the ecm. this diagnostic scan will tell you and your mechanic what the specific issue is and, how to fix it.
In most cases, it will be a failed sensor or a failed sensor wire/housing.
Let me get this straight, you took your Nissan to the NISSAN dealer (who has extensive data and resources) and they said you needed an engine due to the timing had jumped and you declined due to the $6500.00 price. So you took it to the independent guy (local mechanic) that is guessing and throwing parts at it and most likely making it worse because you only needed an ECM that the dealer said was ok, 2 cam sensors and 3 coils (but hey its cheaper than an engine). So now you have a used ECM that doesn't belong in the vehicle that you most likely didn't need and are awaiting the correct one from Nissan. You now have or will have 3 working ECMs, 4 good cam sensors and nine good coils in a van that will still not run. Ok and now you think that the independent guy (local mechanic) doesn't know what he's doing and you want to know if anybody knows a good mechanic. Whatever gave you that impression?? I know now what the problem is.....it's you. You tried to save money but it didn't work. Hopefully you didn't do any further damage but who knows. Get your money back from the local mechanic and take your van to the dealer to get the engine you need before someone else takes you for a ride or damages your vehicle further.
