2004 NISSAN MURANO CODE P0442 EMISSION

MY NISSAN MURANO SES LIGHT CAME ON, SOON AFTER A DAY OR SO MY CAR WOULD NOT START. I HAD A FRIEND WHO PLUGGED A SCANNER INTO THE CAR AND GOT CODE P0442 EVAPORATIVE EMISSON SYSTEM LEAK DETECTED (SMALL LEAK). WOULD THIS CAUSE MY CAR NOT TO START ANYMORE? I ALSO TRIED TO BOOST BUT IT DIDN'T START; WHAT SHOULD I CHECK FOR? PLEASE HELP, THANKS!

    I BOOSTED THE CAR TURNED THE IGNITION KEY BUT THE ONLY SOUND IT MADE WAS A TICKING SOUND. DOES NOT START AT ALL.

  • huet Aug 14, 2008

    ONE MORE THING I DID, I USED A MULTI-METER TO MEASURE THE VOLTAGE OF THE BATTERY AND IT READ 14.4 V WITHOUT TURNING THE IGNITION KEY.

Hi...
The code P0442 . Come most of times when you left the Fuel cap Loose. because this code refer to a small leak
But This CODE Don't afect on nothing with the starting system.
Just Clear The Code.

Ok. For the Not start problem.
Check the condition of the BATTERY.
Check the connection of the Terminals.
For corrotion. Clean and tight as need.
Be sure to Have the RIGHT Key. With the CHIP.
Not white key.
This MURANO. HAS A TBS " Thecnical Bulleting Service"
With The starter Fuse. some times the FUSE went blowout.
Replace if need.
But is GOOD IDEA to check all the fuses.
And replace as need.
whith A TEST LIGHT check is there a Power 12v, At the STARTER selenoid Attached to the starter assemble. when some Body is trying to start.
If you found Power 12v. and the Battery is Full charged.
You will need to replace the Starter motor.

I hope this help to try diagnostic your Vehicle.

    Multimeter is Not Good to see the Power AMP of the battery.

    You need a Battery tester to se The Cranking amp on the Battery. If you can't get one.

    I recomend remove the Battery an take to Any Autopart. For testing they do this with out charge.

    Is the Right step to see if the battry is in good condition.

    This problem should not cause your car to not start.



    Does the engine turn over?

    You could co-incedently have a weak/bad battery along with this other problem.

  • Brian Berndt
    Brian Berndt Aug 14, 2008

    OK,



    It sounds like you have two problems.



    1 The error code.



    2 The starting problem.

    I would check the connections at the battery as a starting point. They could stand to be cleaned?



    Remove the cable, then clean the post and the clamp/bolt.



    Reattach and try again. You would be suprised at how much of a difference this can make at getting juice to the starter.

  • Brian Berndt

    Keep in mind the error code is probably simple...gas cap not tight, need a new gas cap, vent tube has a small hole.



    The starting problem sounds like a battery, and if it is the original, on a 2004, it is about time to change it anyway!



    Regards,



    Brian

What does code p0442 mean


P0442: Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Small Leak Detected
With a P0442, the most common repair is to:
Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
Otherwise, replace the gas cap, or
Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses

P0455 and p0442


p0455-- emission control system ( a large leak ) the most common cause is a bad seal on fuel cap, remove and replace cap, if light stats on. replace cap. if not the cap it could be any where in emission system. p0442 is--same as above. Code p0442 indicates a fuel vapor leak in the EVAP control system. To fix this problem, remove and reinstall the gas cap. Clear the codes and drive to see if the codes reappear. If the code appears again replace the gas cap or inspect the system for cuts or holes in the tube or hose. good-day !

Reset SES light on Murano.....


I had a similar problem. I took it to a near by auto zone and asked them if they could hook up their scanner to the computer and clear the ses light. The light was reset and that fixed the problem. You might want to try this since they do it for free. Hope this helps.
