The ambient temp sensor is located behind the grill in front of the radiator. It will be a wire with a black plug on the end.

the main one that seems to always go is the modual under the cap if it has a distribtor. or if not it could be the main computer. when the computer gets hot it just shuts down and reboots
if not then you will have to get some way to get the code to fix it

My Nissan Engine type GA15DE1497 Manufactured 1997. Has stalled. Diagnostic kit says the Camshaft positioning censor has failled. The mechanic working on the car can not locate that censor. Kindly let me...

Hi there,

Firstly, if your mechanic cannot locate the camshaft sensor on your GA15DE, then he should NOT be working on your vehicle - chances are, you are payiing extra labour time due to his lack of skill !

Camshaft sensors are generally located 'inside' the distributor cap, or just outside it. Some Nissan engines had the location moved from the side of the engine, to the top.

I strongly recommend you choose a mechanic who understands your engine (i.e. authorised Nissan mechanic) who will get the job done quicker.
