The mechanic scanned it and cleared the codes. It's the crank sensor again. I don't understand why, it's a brand new OEM Nissan sensor smh!

The first time I replaced it, I didn't see any. The second time the mechanic did it for me. It's hard to get to that thing. SES light is back on now, throwing the 0725 and 0335 codes. I know for sure it's the crank sensor. Time to replace again.

I keep thinking that I screwed a wire or something up. When I first replaced the cps, I kept tugging at the wires when I unbolted the sensor. Could I have shortened the sensor's wires out?

I went to go check out the crank sensor with my phone. It looks like there is corrosion on the sensor. Here's the crappy pics:

Good to hear that you got a reman engine, but it sucks that you are having a few minor problems with it. Whoever bought my old 2005 that got totaled and went to auction got a NICE engine! I bought that car brand new in 2005 and ran Mobile1 synthetic oil in it since the second oil change. Then around 50k miles I switched to Amsoil synthetic and ran that in the engine till the day my wife wrecked it. I did get the catalyst efficiency code around 120k miles, and I researched that code and I read all the horror stories about people thing their engine because of the debris from the pre-cat being sucked back into the engine and thing the piston rings. I was so scared that I parked the car for a week or so while I waited on the header to come in. I swapped out that stock exhaust manifold with a stainless header and it actually have it a little more pickup too. That lil sucker ran! Man I miss that car . I babied that car from day one. Every time the smallest thing after up, I fixed it IMMEDIATELY. It had around 136k miles on it when it was totaled in 2013.

Reason for Recall:
On some 2003 model year Nissan Altima and Sentra vehicles equipped with the 2.5 L engine, there is a possibility that the engine might stop running while being driven due to an electrical problem between the crank angle sensor and the ECM. This may also result in the "SES" light coming on. If the engine stops running while driving, this could result in a crash without warning.

What Nissan Will Do

In order to prevent this incident from occuring, your Nissan dealer will reprogram the ECM. This free service should take about one hour to complete, but your Nissan dealer may require your vehicle for a longer period of time based upon their work schedule, or parts availability.


So my question:

It takes 45 mins to reprogram a ECM? (15 mins to get the car in and out of the workshop :S)

Why does it depend on parts availability or is there something else.

And how does reprogramming the ECM solve a electrical problem?

Does anyone know about this?

Dhruv
Definitely getting this recall done now. I have the exact same symptoms even with new sensors.

Tried this and it still has the same problem. I'm going to Nissan to update the ecm. I'll call them later after class to ask them about this little problem as well.

I got another crank sensor and replaced the sensor again. Everything is running fine, as of now. I called Nissan earlier and they didn't even know what exactly the problem is. They guessed, like I did, that it's the ECM messing up the sensor. So I'll get that recall done either this week or next.

On the flip side, the timing chain noise I mentioned earlier is dying down.

You may want to have your oil checked for particulates. Would hate to think that the reason for the noise dying down is because the guide material has finally been filed down by the chain. I can't think of any good reason for it to make noise unless something was done wrong. Oil analysis may be needed to get KarKing to open it up and check it out.

That said, I have my fingers crossed that there is no issue and I"m just being paranoid

I mean the noise is still present. It's just not as loud as it was.
