2002 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 61000 miles
My 2002 Maxima has been a great vehicle but recently I was headed to work and the CEL came on and the engine would not go above 1000rpm's. I put my foot to the floor since I was crossing traffic and I eventually got out of the road. I got the par parked and the engine idled like normal but when I stepped on the pedal, the engine would not rev up at all. I turned the car off for a few minutes and after about 20 tries, I could get the engine to rev up like normal so I could get the car back home. As I was driving, the transmission shifted really hard from 1st to 2nd gear and then the car went back in "safe mode" and I went about 2 miles an hour (with my foot to tle floor) and got the car home. I pulled out my scanner and it listed 18 different OBD II codes. These codes ranged from the TPS sensor all the way up to the MAP sensor and there were a bunch more. I cleared the codes and the car seemed to be okay. I started off to work the next day and wound up having the car towed back to my house. Is this a sign that the main ECU is about ready to go out or could it be another issue? The ECU was replaced by Nissan a couple of years ago due to a missed diagnosis by the dealership and the only problem was a crank position sensor and not the ECU. Any ideas on what would casue the ECU to throw off 18 different codes all at once unless it was getting ready to go out?
have the same problem?
