cheers James, I have emailed Ed, but with regards to that guide of Ed's, I wanted to know if the fault codes would flash on my dash somehow even though I havn't got NATS (so off the top of my head dont think I've actually got a picture of an engine to flash the error code at me)
Another thought I had was that what happens if I miss the error code first time, will it repeat it if I stick the paperclip in again?
Brilliant Ed, I understand much better - thanks a lot.
I phoned Nissan earlier and asked them and the mechanic said he wouldn’t comment and would charge me £42 just to have a look at it and plug in his fault code finder. I told him I’ve heard you can get this error code by using just a paperclip and he said well if you do that then you’ll render the ECU dead. I’m going to try Eds method in the bottom two sockets – hopefully tonight – and then I can see if the ECU knows about any errors. I’m hoping its just a sensor, a cheap one at that.
