just got a fault code...


Recommended Posts

I think the throttle body either needs to be inspected / cleaned or replaced mate.


Has anyone actually done this?

Try the following, this should reset the throttle position (may be corrupt following the battery going flat and being replaced)



3. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.

4. Check that all items listed under the topic “PREPARATION” (previously mentioned) are in good order.

5. Turn ignition switch “OFF” and wait at least 10 seconds.

6. Confirm that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch “ON” and wait 3 seconds.

7. Repeat the following procedure quickly five times within 5 seconds.

a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal.

b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.

8. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 20 seconds until the MIL stops

blinking and turned ON.

9. Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the MIL goes off.

10. Start engine and let it idle





Item 4 refers to this:



Battery voltage: More than 12.9V (At idle)

Engine coolant temperature: 70 - 100°C (158 - 212°F)

Electric load switch: OFF

(Air conditioner, headlamp, rear window defogger)

On vehicles equipped with daytime light systems, set lighting switch to the 1st position to light

only small lamps.

Steering wheel: Neutral (Straight-ahead position)

Vehicle speed: Stopped

This is starting to become a regular fault as I've read of quite a few people who have had this code show up and its usually down to corrosion in one of the connections. I first found out about it in a trade magazine (Blue Print) when one of the writers suffered the same problem although after much testing his turned out to be slightly different as Nissan in the manufacturing process had omitted to fit a seal in one of the connectors causing the initiation of the limp home mode and excess corrosion. Another owner on another forum has suffered the same problem and going through the reset procedure didn't solve the problem. It seems that with autumn on the way damp is causing connection problems.
