2001 Nissan Setntra GXE 1.8 AT ECU Problem...also
 
I read your posts and would also like to know if you guys have resolved the issue. I'm on the verge of ordering a refurb ECU for $300 and if I can save the money, that would be AWESOME! Let me know if the ECU was the problem. Thanks.

K, I just had this issue where the service engine light wouldn't go off, my regular mechanic told me they got rid of one code, the other was a dealer code. Basically the dealer said I had an automatic's cpu in my manual car and would need a manual cpu/ecu. So, I got one and did the switch this morning, no ses light on anymore!!! I'm very happy! If anyone's lookin for an automatic ECU, i'll sell it, $130.

I'm interested, just sent you a message.

I have a general question about the ECU unit. I think I need a new one and I wonder where people are reading the numbers from.

I removed the entire black plastic case from the space in the engine compartment and opened up the case and inside is a metal box but I don't see any numbers on it. Are the numbers on the black plastic case?


Also, when you get a new one does it come in the whole black case or do you just get the box inside? I think I may have found one at an auto salvage but I don't know the numbers.

Thanks

Here's my story,

A few months back my 2001 sentra gxe 1.8 L started acting sluggish in the mornings, hot, warm or cold outside. It would seem like it was going to stall and so I would step on it and it would get going fine and wouldn't happen the rest of the day. Then it started to happen more frequently and then it didn't happen at all.

Then one day on the tollway it did it all the time and I barely made it off onto side streets. I would press the gas and it's like I didn't even do anything, it would bog down. I got it home and figured it was a fuel pump but the pump seemed fine. Then we thought it was a fuel pressure regulator because the pressure seemed a bit high so we replaced that.

Then I cleaned the Mass airflow sensor with a spray cleaner and it seemed like that helped. I drove it around the block and it got up to speed slowly but if you stepped on it it wouldn't even know you did anything. so then we thought throttle position sensor and I cleaned that. In the meantime I got a OBD to USB cable and some software and checked the data. It crashed the program and it wouldn't send all data, just some. The cable and program worked fine on my other car. So I think pretty much it's an ECM. I just need to know what to get and how to replace it.

Thanks

2001 Nissan Sentra GXE - ECM troubles
 
Update: I have replaced two of the O2 sensors on my sentra. I have replaced the fuel pump. I then replaced the ECM. NOTHING! Stupid Nissan!

So my mechanic replaced the Mass Air Flow Sensor. Nothing. We sent the ECM back to where we got it so that they could check it.But they reported that it was working fine. So I am now waiting for a different ECM. Has anyone fixed this problem and if so, HOW? Toss me a bone. Thanks.

Hi,

I bought 2001 xe 3 wks ago and I had ses light since 5 min after I bought the car.
Since then, mass air flow sensor has been changed 3 times and the dealer (and his mechanic) has no idea what to do.

The code the car is giving is interpreted to be having problem with following three.
1. Mass air flow sensor
2. ECU
3. Wiring (Connection)

I will post if it gets solved.

Good luck to everyone!!!

2000 Nissan Sentra replace ECM TCM PCM code p1605
 
Hi everyone, just giving some insight on an issue I had. I have a 2000 Nissan Sentra GXE with a 1.8L motor, automatic transmission, power windows, and no security system (when I was looking at junk yards they always asked me those) . I had the ses light on with code P1605 and the symptom was that the car would start in second gear go to third but never into fourth gear so it would revving up high(5k rpm)while going 60mph and you couldn't turn overdrive on/off. I replaced the ecm since these cars come equipped with a pcm which includes ecm and tcm in one. My pcm number was RC 5ZE1RC JA56L60. The one I purchased from ebay for $200 number was RC 5ZE1RC JA56Q47. The number was slightly different but it worked perfectly. It starts in first gear and goes through all of them perfectly. Everything works normally.
Hope this helps. :) Im not a mechanic im just a weekend diy kinda guy so confirm if this will work for you.

pcm location
 
@juan my pcm was located in the firewall on the passenger side. Top left corner if you are facing the engine, should be in a plastic casing that goes into the firewall.
-goodluck
