Nissan x trail.. Engine wont fire up or runs.. Scan tools had no fault code , try removed the connector of cam sensors and try to start the engine fault code appear on cam sensors fault or no communication...


Sounds like similar problem I had with a 2004 Altima 2.5. Crank but no start. Ended up being a timing chain stretched out and tensioner pinching chain against case not allowing variable timing to work and throwing off cam and crank sensor signals.

My 1988 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L died on me coming home from work. I have no spark at the spark plugs. I have replaced the coil/control module assembly with a used unit as well as the camshaft position...


I am experincing the same problems with my 1988 jeep Cherokee 4.0. It died coming home one day,I replaced the motor and it turns over but gets no fire. I have repaced the control module, and distributor brand new my coil is testing good. I am wondering if it is my ECU also. The plug coming off distributor has one wire showing bright on test light, and one showing a dim light on test light and was wondering if you have checked these wires? Trying to figure out what will make these both shine bright.

My anti-lock brakes light on the dash is on....what could be causing this?


Problems with ABS can be frustrating. You have senors on the front wheels, you have wires that run to the sensors, plus you have the ECU mounted to the master cylinder or on the fire wall depends on other options. Now the wheel sensors work like little alternators. Your wheels will have a gear that the senor reads as the wheel turns and then creates an A/C voltage that tells the ECU unit that the wheels are turning. Having a ABS code could mean that wiring to one of the sensors is broken or has fallen off, or is corroded at the plug end. Your ABS system has four major parts the ECU, an ABS hydraulic unit and the wiring harness to the wheel sensors, then last the sensors themselves. You will need to check all the wiring harnesses to each If you have a multi meter you can read the voltage of each wheel sensor at the other end of its wiring harness. Jack up the front end and find the end of each wheel sensor harness and spin the wheels by hand. you should get a reading on the AC voltage scale of about ..45 volts. not quite a half volt. when the wheel stops the meter should go to zero. spin the wheel and the meter should show voltage. That will tell you if the sensor and the wiring is good. The ECU has no trouble shooting it is good or bad.can't help you there. same with the Hydraulic unit. Most times it will be a wire broken or a bad wheel sensor. Good hunting.

1990 Chevy 1/2 ton 4/4 truck with auto and 350v8. wiper problems


to whom it may concern, you cant used the harness of 1989 model to 1990 model chevy truck, even the sockets are the same a,b,c,d, thers a big different on wire distribution from the ecu. it better that you find harness on the same model, or if you still not yet finish that problem i will gave you the 1990 ecu diagram on live chat or contact me @ my ym

Car wouldnt turn off so i pulled the plug wire to turn it off, could it have jumped time because it wont run right


Hmmm.. well the galant has an ECU (engine control unit) that controls timing. Pulling a spark plug wire should have set a code for misfire and the computer may have tried to adjust, accomodate. However when you returned teh wire and ran the engine it should have recalibrated back. The cars do have a "limp" mode that when it detects issues that could be catastrophic it alters the idle, speed, etc of teh car to allow it to continue to run but with minimal damage. This is called "limp" mode because it allows you to slowly drive the car with decreased performance to a service location. If the car is running and driveable to short distances I suggest going to your local autoparts store and having them read the codes.. YOU write them down so you can diagnose, and then have them CLEAR all codes. If the car is stuck in limp mode this should reset the drive cycle and help. If clearing it doesnt help the ECU may be stuck or failing. From your initial comment about the car not turning off Im afraid it sounds like the ECU. The ECU controls the ignition to the engine, etc.

Car just died, electrical system gone


there is no such thing as a main battery fuse.
seems like a wire has come undone under the dash and shorted your car out.
