I checked pin 2 to tpin 17 on the combination meter and that is also shorted as it is supposed to be. I can see how this might be confusing, so I'll do my best to explain. I have checked continuity of the fuel level harness pin 5 to ground and there is continuity. P0462 2003 Nissan Sentra Description The fuel level sensor is mounted in the fuel level sensor unit.
I'd say the car has stalled about 20-25 times in almost a year. Other materials: Description Transmits the washer level switch signal to the combination meter. I just switched the unified control unit with borrowed one from an identical car and that is the problem! I do not buy into that response. There was a little bit of oxidation and I resoldered it. The fuel level sensor consists of two parts, one is mechanical float and the other side is variable resistor. If you are interested in doing this yourself I can try to help you but it will require you disassembling many things. You can have yours repaired!! Engine control unit needs reprogrammed which was done.
P0462 Nissan Description The fuel level sensor is mounted in the fuel level sensor unit. I took the car to autozone and the error that came up where p0462 and p0335. Right now I get 30Ω and have around a half a tank of gas. The first time this occurred I was able to pull over on the freeway to the shoulder. File number with Nissan is 5463960.
I am usually able to turn the car on after a moment without issue. The part where I replace the control arm and air tube were shot in late March 2016. It is made up of three separate components: a resistor, actuating rod, and a float. If the harness is ok, replace the solenoid pack in the transmission. Nissan issued a recall for the same concerns which have the same repair but states that only 2002,2005,and 2006 models are affected. When I turn the car off, the gas needle blips up to about half and then goes back down to the bottom. I replaced the sensor and fuel filter.

Despite how simple this fuel-measuring tool is, there could be a number of reasons behind it sending readings of insufficient voltage.
They said the garage did a nice job. I have almost ran out of gas to see if that would correct this code. The fuel level sensor consists of two parts, one is mechanical float and the other side is variable resistor. Aug 06, 2011 Heat Shield is loose - it's flopping around. The sensor detects a fuel level in the fuel tank and transmits a signal to the Engine Control Module. On the 2003 Maxima, the garage was able to replace the rusted out clamp using some scrap material they had lying around. The local garage narrowed it down to the bad gas gage in the instrument cluster.
