Probably not the same thing.. But I once had issues after a wash lots of lights lit up.. limp mode.. turned out it was the MAF (dealer kept misdiagnosing to the tune of $1000 of work done and issue not fixed).TheGrayt1 wrote:Me washing the engine off 2 weeks ago did not cause this? Also is it okay to drive a round for a few days throwing this code before I can get the parts in? I do not want to damage the engine.
If the sensor is malfunctioning, it could damage the catalytic converter buy causing unburned fuel to be sent through the exhaust.TheGrayt1 wrote:Thanks I highly doubt washing my engine did it but wanted to check. Also can someone please advise if it is alright to drive the truck with this faulty sensor currently? Do not want to damage anything?
The battery terminal protector is fine. Just get a rag (to keep from getting that stuff all over your hand) and make sure you can turn the cable end on the battery post. It could very well be the $9 Ebay cam sensor...remember, if the price is too good to be true, it probably is...but, I'm just saying there are other possibilities that can cause this problem. Might be worth making a couple of basic checks before spending money on another sensor and going through the hassle of replacing it. If it is the sensor, again, I would advise going with either a Hitachi or NTK sensor (from Rockauto) or a genuine Nissan part (CourtesyParts.com and NissanPartsDeal.com are good sources for Nissan parts).TheGrayt1 wrote:I did put battery terminal protector back on the cables for the battery as a precaution. Could that have done anything? Would loose battery cables cause all this? It is cranking slow as well which leads me to think it is the sensor but have no clue why all the other lights are on. I am so mad at myself for disconnecting the battery. I thought it would clear the codes.
