How to fix P0420 code in Nissan Setra 2003?

This code is generic and is the same on all vehicles. P0420 = Catalyst System Efficiency Below ThresholdCatalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold. This means that the secondary O2 sensor detects that the catalytic converter isn't working as efficiently as it should. This engine code can be triggered by any one of the following:

1.) The catalyst in the catalytic converter is cracked, clogged, or otherwise damaged.

2.) The secondary O2 sensor is malfunctioning.

3.) There is an exhaust leak.

4.) The computer unit is faulty

Where is the fuse for the dashboard light of a Nissan Frontier and if it is in the fuse box which one is it?

This answer does not address which fuse in the fuse is for the dashboard lights. I checked the fuse diagram on the back of the cover, but could not find one for dashboard/instrument panel lighting. Any suggestions? On 99 Nissan Frontier 2.4/2WD, the fuse box can be access by removing the plastic rectangular cover about your left knee high. Inside the cover is the diagram for each fuses and what it serve. There's also a plastic fuse remover on the right side of the fuse assembly, several spare fuses on top and it uses the midget(1/2")type fuse. Hope this will help. (sid5401@cox.net)

Where can you find the timing specs for a 1990 Nissan Micra?

Try buying a manual from Haynes www.haynes.co.uk Your car may well not have adjustable timing.. It could be controlled by an engine management system, in the case of ignition timing. Valve timing is controlled by the timing chain and not adjustable. Failing that, I have adjusted (old style) timing myself by ear. It seems more accurate than a cheap timing light in most cases! Good Luck, Mick

Where do you locate the resister for the blower switch on a 94 Maxima?

The resistor is located behind the glove box and is held in place with two screws. Remove the glove box (approximately 10 screws) to gain access to the core housing the resistor. You'll see a connector with three wires attached directly in front of you. Remove the two screws securing the resistor to the core. Should have a number of prongs (heat sinks) protruding from one side.

Where is the PCV valve located on a 1996 4-cylinder Nissan pick-up?

i think it is on the valve cover but to get to it you have to remove the valve cover because its on the inside.

Usually on top of valve cover I just changed one on a 96 Ex 4WD. You need to remove the passenger side front tire, take off the oil filter, and unhook the alternator. It's behind the alternator. Above the pcv valve, there is a bypass hose. if you puncture it, it's a bear to replace. Good Luck

How do you tighten a fan belt on a Nissan Pathfinder?

I was told by a mechanic that the fan belt and timing belts on a Pathfinder (mine is a 2001) self-tighten when you accelerate. They do not need to be or do not tighten manually. If your belt is loose, it is probably time to just replace it or it got stretched by someone taking it off and putting it back on or from normal wear and tear. Either way, it needs to be replaced with a new one because once they're stretched, they're no good. I'm not an expert, but this is what I was told by a mechanic.

On a 1998 Nissan Sunny the front passenger window goes down but not up using the switches on the passenger's and driver's sides what is wrong?

On Nissans, the passenger and both rear door window switches get their power through the master (drivers door) switch. First thing to try is playing with the master switch. Move the master switch button that is inop to the position that is not working and move it around with your finger. If this don't work, remove the master switch and clean the contacts, maybe with some silicon spray and then test if you have power leaving the switch. If not, the switch probably needs to be replaced.

Have seen this happen on other cars and it has been the passenger door switch. It is most probably a double pole double throw switch and both sides of the switch need to work to make the window go both ways. Check the connections on the back of the switch and/or interchange it with one from another door. I think most likely a wiring fault at the passenger door switch and the drivers door switch have the same fault. Ken

Where can you get wiring diagrams for the radio system on a 2001 Echo with a 1.5 and for a Kenwood CD deck?

There are three plugs in the back of an Echo radio. Before I blew the fuse, this is what I had figured out. The black one, of course, is the antenna. The other two plugs are white(5 wires) and blue(8 wires). The white plug is mainly speaker wires. The blue plug has speaker wires and the power and ground wires. White plug: Black and Gold wires --- right speaker(not sure front or back) Red and White wires --- left speaker(not sure front or back) (Not sure about the white/green striped wire) Blue plug: Purple and Pink wires --- speaker(not sure L or R, front or back) Green and teal wires --- speaker(not sure L or R, front or back) (Not sure about the green wire) Power in blue plug: Grey wire --- Main power(thru ignition) Teal/yellow striped wire --- Accesary power(constant for stations or clock, etc...) White/black striped wire --- Ground As far as the Kenwood, I don't know. That's the wiring, now if anyone can tell me where the fuse is, I would be ever so appreciative. [Fuse box is located below the steering wheel and to the left, in a storage compartment, you must pull back the plastic cover labled "fuse" and the diagram is on the back of that cover. The ACC fuse is for the radio & cig lighter power.]

Why would the seatbelt light on a 1990 Nissan Maxima keep coming on and going off even when you have your seatbelt on?

nissan designed the seatbelt warning light to flash i think around 7 times. there is also a warning bell with the light, however the bell deactivates once the drivers seatbelt is locked in, where as the light continues the full cycle. Naaman

What other models have a starter that will also work in a 1996 Nissan Altima?

The 93-97 altimas use a specific starter for that car. All Automatic transmissions use part# 23300-1E410R and all Manual transmissions use part# 23300-1E400R. There are no other Nissan models that use the same part numbers.

Is the Skyline legal in the US?

Generally, no, but it depends, its all about your state specific laws. Its generally because of them being grey market cars, which means that if they find out that you had one imported, or brought in from any country, it will be impounded and auctioned with no refund, but u can get around that in california, if it is registered out of state, and you can bring it in that way, or there are a few companies that make the body of the car in japan and bring them up to DOT/EPA standards, and ship them as parts, which then, the EPA doesn't pay to much attention to them anyway

How do you tell whether the cylinder head is cracked or a head gasket blown on a 1989 Nissan Pintara?

Nissan head gaskets have a very low failure rate. Now if the engine has been overheated badly, all bets are off. If you have a cooling system pressure tester, you can remove all the spark plugs, add pressure to the cooling system and crank the engine. If you get coolant coming from the spark plug ports when the engine is cranking, pretty good chance you've got a warped or cracked head and at least a failed head gasket. You can also buy a chemical tester to see if you have got exhaust gas in the coolant. Either way, the head has to come off and plan on spending lots of money.

pull the head off and send it to a machine shop

What is the spark plug gap?

The area on a spark plug where the spark takes place. Spark plug gap is the distance that energy must breech to complete an electrical circuit. It varies fron manufacturer to manufacturer but plug gap must be correct to within .003" to meet spec. Any plug that is out of spec. more than .003" should be replaced. Regular maintaince dictates this interval, any plug left too long during the course of service, that excedies OEM spec. can (and will) cause premature ignition system failure. The larger the spark jump the more energy required, the more energy required, more heat is produced. Car igition systems operate at 50,000 + volts. Thousands of an inch can leave you stranded. Most importantly, modern DIS (ignition) systems can cost hundereds of dollars to fix when pushed beyond intended threshold. GM Licensed Mechanic, Ryan

Why do the fog lights and cruise control on a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder fail to work even if there are no bad fuses?

Hi, I think I might have an answer to the FOG LIGHTS part of the question. I had the same problem on my 1995 Pathfinder and the solution was within the very fog light. Check the contacts on the fog lights. They might be shortened/grounded. So in order to fix it, use some electrical tape and, hopefully, it should resolve the problem.
