Question about 2002 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Service engine soon

Hi I have a 2002 Nissan Maxima the service engine soon light is on and the code reads its the crank shaft sensor but my mechanic just replaced it with a genuine nissan part and cleared the code and still comes up that it is the crank shaft sensor and the TCS and SLIP lights come on fairly regularly. None of these seem to effect the running efficiency except the car shut off sometimes right after I start it up but has no problem starting up again

Service engine soon wont go away!!!!!!!!!


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

My service engine soon light is on and it reads that the engine speed signal circuit is the problem, what should I do!


This is normally caused by the Crank Sensor. The Engine Speed signal is given by the Crank sensor, not the vehicle speed sensor. Most people get confused and replace the speed sensor instead.

So to resolve your problem you will need to replace the crank sensor. The engine speed sensor code is always related to the crank sensor failure.

Thanks Jay!

I am getting an error code for cam shaft sensors on a 2002 Nissan max. Is is complicated to go under the hood and replace them?


It is not difficult. It is located on the timing cover on the passenger side of the engine. You'll see a wire harness going to a hall effect sensor with a 10mm bolt. They should cost around $80.

However, there was also a Recall in 2003, ID# 46615 involving a bad solder joint on the crank and cam sensor control boards. You can read about it here:

What causes a car not accelerate properly


I know common issues for the the 2000 Maximawas the Mass Air Flow sensor and the coils. I think both of them triggered a Service Engine Soon light.

My 2002 Maxima has had no issues yet (only 70k miles, unlike the 180k on the 2000).

Transmission stuck in 5th gear???


This is most likely one of your cam shaft sensors. The reason your transmission goes to 5th gear and stays there is because the car automatically goes into "safe mode". This prevents you from running the car on high RPM's which decreases the chance of causing more damage to the engine.
Depending on the code you get from the check engine light, it will be one of the cam-shaft sensors or the crank shaft sensor. A code reader will answer that question.
Often the sensor just fails or oil gets into the connectors which prevents proper reading. This sometimes goes away temporarily when engine is hot but problem will return.
To replace the cam shaft sensors you are looking at approximately 30 min of work. Its a tight fit but not a difficult job.
Cam shaft sensors are about $80. Not sure how much crank haft sensor is.
Hope this helps, and good luck.
