Question about Nissan GT-R
Your have a lsd sensor going bad,replace it and it will be fine but your fluid and filter need to be changeds
Posted on Aug 09, 2010
The Hicas on all the R33 models are controlled by an electric motor. The small tank in the boot on the GTR's (off-side), is used for the torque convertor for the 4wd, making it near impossible to fill with Nissan Hydro. Type Fluid.
The Hicas light problem, on some models, turned out to be a loose fuse, which also makes the steering tight.
The fuse is located under the steering column next to the bonnet catch lever (small pull out Compartment), and it's about the 5th fuse down from the left. Check it out, don't want your rear wheels turning for no reason due to a malfunction at high speed!. R33 HICAS - use electrical motors.. as they have no hydraulic resevoir tank to fill with Nissan recommended or comparable power steering fluid. Code Diagnosis is as follows: R34 GT-R Hicas Diagnostic Self Diagnostic Procedure
1. Start the engine
2. Within 10 seconds after turning the key to 'ON', start the engine, turn steering wheel from left to right 20 degrees from neutral 5 times or more times & pump the brakes 5 times. Then press the brake pedal again to enter the test mode.
Diagnostic Item Input
1. Move the vehicle one or two meters at a very low speed
2. Turn the steering wheel more than 20 deg right to left once or more.
11 Control unit
12 Motor power supply
13 Motor output
21 Vehicle sped signal
22 Steering angle signal
23 Steering angle netural signal
24 Rear steering angle main sensor signal
25 Rear steering angle sub-sensor signal
33 Engine speed signal
41 Yaw rate signal
300ZX Procedure Turbos come standard with High Capacity Actively Controlled Suspension, a fancy way to say 4 wheel steering. There's a visual diagnostic mode to check for problems in the HICAS functions. The 90-93 TTs have hydrolic HICAS running off the power steering pump, where '94+ utilizes electric actuators to handle the rear steering chores. Their codes are a little different, but the procedure is the same. It might required a few tries to make it work. Be persistant!
1. Ignition switch 'off' manual tranny in neutral or A/T in 'P'
2. Start the engine
3. Within 10 seconds after turning the key to 'ON', start the engine, turn steering wheel from left to right 20 degrees from neutral 5 times or more times & pump the brakes 5 times. Then press the brake pedal again to enter the test mode.
4. Turning the steering wheel left or right past 20 degrees from neutral will cause the rear wheels to turn slightly (~1 degree) (1.).
5. Drive the car forward 15 feet under 9mph to enter the full diagnostic mode.
6. The HICAS dash light will flash a code indicating any problems. Long flash is first digit, short flash is 2nd digit.
7. Diagnostic mode is exited when: ignition is turned off, vehicle speed exceeds 9mph, or diagnostic has operated for 5 minutes.
HICAS light codes for '90-'93:
1. HICAS solenoid R.H.
2. HICAS solenoid L.H.
3. Cut-off valve
4. Power Steering solenoid
5. Vehicle Speed sensor
6. Steering angle sensor
7. Steering Neutral positon sensor
8. A/T: Parking Brake Sensor M/T: Clutch sensor
9. A/T: Inhibitor sensor M/T: Neutral sensor

Thanks for using FixYa.
All you need to do is to change the LSD oil. I'm sure its been awhile since the last change.
I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.
