    1998 Nissan Primera Camino station wagon - engine light stays on mechanic says something wrong with transmission/sensors, thinks certain models were recalled because of this fault - slow to start off and slowly gathers speed


  • work4julia Feb 19, 2009

    Mine was doing exatly the same. must be the sensors. my dad took them out hardwired something to fool the circuit and then reset onboard computer (he got re-programmimg cheat sequence of the internet somewere). I sure there is proper way of fixing it but no mechanic could produce a definite answer as to what the problem is and how much would it cost.
    Goes nicely now. Light still on (cos poor thing thinks something wrong with the sensors I guess)

SOURCE: hello. my 2000 4runner v6 has been running rough.

Change your oxygen sensors - they're responsible for feedback that the computer uses to determine the air/fuel mixture. They usually are good for about 60k miles and then start to go downhill. When they get to a point that the computer won't trust them, it ignores them and runs on preprogrammed fuel maps that run excessively rich (too much fuel) to safeguard the engine. You've probably seen a decrease in fuel mileage as well. And the O2 sensors have to be up around 900 degrees before they'll work - the car ignores them until then. That's why you run fine after a cold start but run rough once the car is warmed up.

The O2 sensors you want to change are in the exhaust system between the engine and catalytic converters (the "pre-cat" sensors). There are O2 sensors after the cats as well, but those are used comparatively to determine how well the cats are functioning. The primaries are the ones used for fuel mixture. If it's been this way for a few weeks or so, I'd put new spark plugs in as well - rich fuel conditions can foul them and contribute to the rough running.

As for the limp mode unless you have an expensive diagnostic system this usually has to be done by BMW (anything to get ya to a dealership!!). The comms problem, is the key turned in the ignition?

SOURCE: Nissan terrano pr50 4WD warning light starts

Did this start happening, after tyres were rotated, or a new tyre was fitted? This will probably reset when the ignition is turned off and back on again, then start flashing after another 80km. This can be caused by the rolling diameter of the wheels being different, and the computer is picking up that a tyre is flat, or that the tyres are of different size designation or different levels of wear. This happened to me after rotating tyres, and would repeat every 40-50km, and went away, when i put the spare, back to being the spare.

Nissan primera 2005 1.8 sx goes limp mode at night with lights and wipers on. No measurable battery or charger problems. Switch off lights and the problem goes away instantly.


The only thing these components have in common is the ground wires. There are many grounds on a vehicle. But the main three are the battery to body, battery to engine and engine to body. These are fairly large wires/cables. They should be checked with an ohm meter. I replace or repair any wires that have more than 5.0 ohms of resistance.

Nissan primera, engine management light permanently on. When car is first started gearbox changes without a problem. when the engine gets warm it sticks in 1st or sticks in 3rd and 4th and won't change...


Hi Kev,

Your Nissan Primera has an on-board diagnostic computer which can detect malfunctions in either engine or transmission.

When the Engine Management light remains lit, this means some faults are present and need investigating.

From what you've described, one of the issues is indeed related to the transmission, but you will need to have the trouble codes (DTC's) extracted from your vehicle's computer, in order to determine what requires repair.

Whenever power is disconnected (i.e. the battery) and re-connected, this resets your vehicle's computer momentarily, until such time as it detects the fault again.

Recommend you either have your local dealer extract the codes (for a small 15min labor fee), or learn to extract the codes yourself, using a suitable jumper wire.
