[VIDEO] Checking Error Codes

Here is a little 5-minute video to give you an idea on how to do that.


I made this quick video yesterday to show how to check the error codes on a Nissan D21 Hardbody with the newer ECU (not the ODBII ECU):



That should help to explain this diagram:

If anyone has a video how to check the older ECUs, please share it here.

This video was from Deerhurst:



Once you have your codes written down, click over to our the sticky on what these codes mean:

Info from my Chiltons for 1970-88 pickup and Pathy.

Here is a screenshot summary of that data:

Expose the ECU, set the brake, shift into neutral' and turn the key to "ON" without starting it. You should see the LEDs flashing in sequence. If not, flip the switch the other way.

Now, fully press and release the gas pedal one time.
Press the clutch and shift into first. Release the clutch.
Press the clutch and shift back into neutral. Release the clutch.

The only code you should see is 44. Four long blinks followed by four short blinks.

...
[This technique] clears two codes that will otherwise persist. 24 Neutral switch, and (if memory serves) 42 TPS.

Here is a good page of tutorials that Tony provided:

sounds like you were in a hailstorm lol

Dude in that video sounds a little bit like like a hick, too. What's up with that? I thought it was Mater from Cars there for a second.

I got a decent ways into that video when the rain started, and I was like, "Really? Right now?" I didn't have a way to make a stored code pop back up again, or I would have re-recorded it.

That's my little tin roof over the shed I built for it (old pic):

i'd give anything for a garage or a carport.

You taking about me? I'll have to do another and better video. I know I sounded pretty hillbilly in my header video. Funny thing is, I'm from California and now live in Oregon!

Thanks for this!

my ECM is the pathfinder version. it has the grey plastic cover that protects the toggle switch.

it also has the window like deerhurts. when its powered on, it flashes 1, 2, 3, 4 then 5 and starts over. you have to wait until it flashes three, then flip the switch before it starts to flash 4 times. then it will start throwing codes via the red and green lights.

Couldn't tell it was old. ;) I mean it's not like you put Titan wheels on it or anything.

How do you know which one you have? ~newer or older~?
