If you fixed the problem and erased the codes and they do not come back, then chances are the problem is fixed. If you fixed the problem and erased the codes and the codes came back, then there is still a problem. Shorts can be tricky. Sometimes when you replace a shorted part you find out that was not the only shorted part after you install it or that part was not shorted to begin with and there was an open in the circuit that the part you replaced was part of. You are going to have to start troubleshooting. You know what the codes are and now you know what they mean and what the possible causes are. Now you need to start testing to see if there is power going to those parts and if the resistance in the wiring leading to them has the correct resistance required to carry voltage to those parts to make them function properly. The parts that you replaced and the parts that are showing to possibly be faulty due to the codes that populated are part of a large circuit of other wiring, components and control modules. If any of those components are malfunctioning or shorted then they can cause codes to populate for parts on that circuit that are not in fact faulty at all but rely on the part of that circuit that is faulty in order to function. There is an open somewhere in that circuit. You will have to start testing each part in that circuit to find it. Start with the most obvious. I would test the sensors related to the codes and then backtrack through the wiring diagram of that circuit to find out how they relate to the part you replaced. You can also check the easy, are you getting fuel and spark? I am assuming that since it will not start and you are getting fuel system related codes that you are not getting any fuel. There is something probably causing power to stop from going to the pump. As you are troubleshooting you will start to unveil answers to these questions.

How do i fix my 2002 Altima that will not start?

Depends on the make but most likely i would say it is a bad connection, so i would check to see if the wires are possibly damaged. The two codes dont really relate problamatically.

If you have a volt meter you can check to see if the connections are grounded or damaged. I would start there. If you dont have a volt meter a cheap one is about 20$ and you can find on youtube how to use it.

Code p0340, p0462 on subaru outback 2001

Po340 is a cam shaft sensor and po462 is low voltage on your fuel guage. So i assume you are haveing fuel level issues. If you can turn wrenches you can do these repairs yourself. Just do a google search and you can get some youtube videos of sensor replacement and location. Have fun.

I removed a shorted out climate control module now my 2006 Nissan maxima will not start.2 codes are poping up po183 and po462 whats the problem please

P0183 is set when an excessively high voltage from the fuel tank temperature sensor is sent to the engine control module. Possible causes are the sensor circuit is open or shorted or the fuel tank temp sensor is malfunctioning.
P0462 is set when an excessively high voltage is sent from the fuel level sensor to the engine control module. Possible causes are the CAN communication line is open or shorted, the sensor circuit is open or shorted, or a malfunctioning fuel level sensor or unified meter and a/c amp

How repair replace part for code p183,p420,p430,p462

PO183--Engine Fuel Temp Sensor,Verify PID Value
PO420---Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank1),O2 Sensors,Coolant Temp Sensor,Misfiring,etc
PO430--- Catalyst (Bank2)
PO462---Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Low Input,pump module,etc

Well----Codes do not tell you what part to replace,Just that a possible system failure has ocurred
Unless you have a scanner,not a code reader and a trouble chart,your done.
No experience,done

I would speculate, that you only have a couple of, not too serious issues,but wouldn't guess,it doesn't work that way.
Always test,and only replace things if they fail a test.

Is the battery okey and alternator output good ?
