You can go to your local Library, they usually have automotive manuals (Chiltons, Haynes, etc.) that you can check out. Or, you can purchase these at your local auto parts store $10-$20. They are very useful to have on hand and provide decent photos.

SOURCE: Is there a way that I can reprogram a key fob

yes u can and here is the procedure.
1. Close and lock all doors with the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch.

2. Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard
Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder
each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.

3. Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.

4. Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. NOTE: Do not press
the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming
procedure will not be successful.


5. If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors using the driver’s side
power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should
flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing transmitters).

6. Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition, unlock doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.

2003 Nissan Altima 2.5L Service Engine Soon Light is on, Auto Zone says codes are for MAF and O2 Sensors. Car hard to start after driving a while but when starts appears to run smooth. Auto Zone thi


ok lets start with the codes they say your getting. P??? which 1's and how many. there are few o2 sensors, are they next to the Exhaust next to the converter? MASS AIR FLOW -MAF use this, for now i am guessing, until i see the correct codes your are getting. this could be the 1 you may have below, please read it........
  • P0103
    Mass Air Flow Sensor Circuit High Input
  • Possible causes
  • Faulty mass air flow sensor
    - Intake air leaks
    - Dirty mass air flow sensor
    - Dirty mass air filter
    - Mass air flow sensor harness is open or shorted
    - Mass air flow sensor circuit poor electrical connection
  • Before replacing the mass air flow sensor, try replacing the air filter and cleaning the air flow sensor with low compress air or mass air flow sensor cleaner. Reset code and drive vehicle. If the code comes back, it may be necessary to replaced the mass air flow sensor.
  • possible symptoms Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
    - Engine stall
    - Engine running rough
    - Excessive fuel consumption

Vehicle missing,shaking,engine light comes on


Misfire could be a number of things:
a) spark plugs - change them if used over 15K miles - inspect/regap.
b) spark plug wires - change them if over 15K miles - inspect
c) ECM (electronic control module) - test with HEI (high energy ignition) tester.

The shaking tells me that the engine is running on less than its normal compliment of cylinders - the shaking is produced by the imbalance caused in the engine by one (or more) cylinder(s)
not firing at all.

The "Check Engine" light probably is coming on due the the misfire condition. Go to Pep Boys or
Advance Auto Pats, where they'll tell you (free) your codes causing the "Check Engine' light to be
lit - the code coming from your truck's computer will probably be one or more of:
P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder misfire detected
P0301 - Cylinder 1 misfire detected
P0302 - Cylinder 2 misfire detected
P0303 - Cylinder 3 misfire detected
P0304 - Cylinder 4 misfire detected
P0305 - Cylinder 5 misfire detected
P0306 - Cylinder 6 misfire detected
P0307 - Cylinder 7 misfire detected
P0308 - Cylinder 8 misfire detected
P0313 - Misfire detected with low fuel

I have 2003 nissan altima 2.5 ,I had a diagnostic test run and it says #2 cylindermisfire.


test the spark plug wire for ohms resistance, inspect the spark plug, test the coil for ohms resistance. run a compression test to see if it is the cylinder lost compression (valve job - cracked head or blown gasket)
Best regards

Went through some water van died after sitting a day it started up but engine light is now on and sputters when stopped went to auto zone they say i have a 2 cylinder misfire what excactly does this mean...


It means that the number 2 cylinder (passenger front of the engine) is not working. Whether its spark, fuel, or mechanical. The first thing you can check is if there is spark to the cylinder. With the engine running remove the spark plug wire from the number 2 spark plug. Listen or look for spark out of the plug wire. If there isn't than you can check for spark out of the coil pack. Do this with a test light or spark tester. With the engine off remove the number 2 spark plug wire from the coil pack. With the spark tester installed or the test light hooked to ground and placed on the #2 coil post have some body crank the engine over. If ther4e is no spark that you might have a bad coil pack. If there is spark than possibly the plug wire is bad.

You should not drive it with a misfire as you could ruin the catalytic converter which is very expensive to replace.

Service engine light came on went to auto zone they tested machine said number 3 cylinder misfire does this car take spark plugs because i dont see how to install them


It's probably not the spark plug. I would check the coil and injector. these two are the main cause of a single cylinder misfire. ps if the car is running fine now(not missing out) I would have the code erased and wait to see if it came back on.
