You gotta go to the dealership to get that reset...and it costs like 30 bucks I heard...no bullshit
What are you talking about?
epi, try looking in the FAQ.

all 2nd gens SHOULD be the same. It should still have it, it just may be harder to get too.

the 98 and 99 are just like the 1st gens..maybe the 2k and 2k1 are different.
possibly, although I was under the impression that there were no major changes done until 2k2. Well, what I mean is no changes really at all. Since the ECU change isnt really anything major. Anyways, my point... :) is that I would think that there all the same. However I could be wrong, mine is a '99. So I'm just going by the faq.

Well, there are a few things about the 2k-2k1s that differ from everything up until 99. There's 5 more hp, I assume from exhaust or intake; different gauges (circular gas/temp gauges); no exterior antenna (wired into rear window glass); headlights (i'm sure we've all heard that one) and taillights (although it's just aesthetic, solid red instead of red/amber); rear bumper and hood are slightly different from 98-99s. I'm sure there are more.

the 5hp comes from the internals i believe. also..why would nissan configure and manufacturer all new ecu's just for a 2 years span of a car?

I'm not kidding

Hey guys again thank you for your responses but I'm serious about the ecu.I've been looking around the ecu and I also pull both panels next to the driver foot and passenger and I can't find the so mentioned flat head screw.If anybody else have some info about it or if somebody has a 01' model that would like to take a look and verify if they have the screw.Any suggestion or info will be greatly appreciated.Thanx!

light off

Hey guys the warning light went off by itself I read about that in the owner's manual.The light is supposed to go off after a few short trips if any poblem is found during that period as far as emissions.Anyway guys I was concerned because I did some long trips and the light was still there but finally I got peace of mind.Oh! I checked again for the screw I pulled the transparent tape and look with a flahlight and still couldn't find anything.I don't know if it's because the pedals are in my way but I'm serious about it.Well guys, thank you very much again and long live for altimas!!
