Re: 2004 NISSAN MURANO CODE P0442 EMISSION
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.

The following directions will help you decode your 2002-2006 Nissan Altima's Service Engine Soon (SES) light and reset it.<br />
<span style="font-weight: bold;">Obtain The Trouble Code</span><br />
<li>Turn the ignition key to the ON position and wait three seconds.</li>
<li>Put the accelerator pedal to the floor and release it five times in less than five seconds.</li>
<li>Wait exactly seven seconds. Put the accelerator pedal to the floor for ten seconds until the SES light flashes.</li>
<li>Release the accelerator pedal and start counting flashes to obtain the four-digit trouble code.<br /></li></ol>
<li>Long flashes (0.6 seconds) indicate the first digit of the code; count
the blinks one through nine and write down the first digit. (Ten blinks
indicates a zero.) </li>
The next three digits blink
faster (0.3 second) and have a 1 second pause between digits.</li>
<li>The ECM code repeats until you turn the ignition key to the OFF
<li>You can look up the trouble codes in the Service Manual.</li>
<li>If you get four blinks of ten, or 0000, the ECM indicates no malfunction.<br /></li></ul>
<br style="font-weight: bold;" /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Clear The Trouble Code</span><br />
Clear the code and the SES light by holding the
accelerator pedal down to the floor for 10 seconds or more while the SES light is
<li>When the pedal is released, the ECM will erase the trouble
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.
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.
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.
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.
