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.

  • Anonymous 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.

    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

How to reset engine service soon on nissan murano 2004


Take it to your local auto parts store and have them hook up the code scanner and some of them will tell you they're not allowed to do the reset but I just tell em it's cool...just reset it. Some won't do it at all so just go to a different store, someone is bound to do it.
Or you can buy a OBD scanner of your own and reset it yourself.

Engine sluggish after warming up,rpms climb but car slowly accelerates ,


mileage has nothing to do with the cat's going bad its fuel quality and how you service the car usually try putting some carb cleaner through the system

Both cam sensors replaced for ses/vdc/slip lights, hard starting when hot, still have ses light, rough idle at stops, smooths out when driving


First thing I would do is check oil level. If its low fill to correct level. retry. Low oil level will cause cam actuators to stick & your problem can happen with SES light. Second I would make sure you got updated cam sensors from dealer. El-****-o sensors can cause this problem also. Third off If you can fined out what the codes are in the PCM...... Nissan ignition coils that start to go bad will do this also. Throttle body that wast or lost its programmed learn can do this also.... So please see what codes are stored will help the way to look.

How do i reset my check engine soon light 2005 nissan murano


you can buy a code reader from an auto parts store that will give you the ability to reset the check engine light, or most parts stores have one that they use on customers cars at no charge. if you ask them to read which code your car is throwing, most of them will let you hit the button to clear the code. they aren't supposed to do it themselves for some reason, but from my experience they will let you.

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.
