#2092 of 2710 Dealer charged $95 to reprogram the ECU/ECM
Oct 30, 2007 (12:19 pm)
My wife's 2005 Altima had a check engine light go on. We tested it, the code said it was the catalytic converter. She took it to the dealer. He told her she needed to reprogram the ECM. He did that, and told her to drive it around for a few days to see if the light comes back on. He charged $95 for the reprogramming. As far as I understand, that is supposed to be free. We are appealing to Nissan.

I am having the same problem with my car, excessive oil consumption and the muffler sounds loud. Its also consuming engine coolant and now the dealer says the coverter is blown and has caused damage to the engine

You guys need to be sure to read the "Nissan Altima Engine Failures" forum. There is a lot posted there about what you are discussing here, excessive oil consumption, catalytic converter failures, etc.

I have an 04 Altima, it began idling and shutting off if i did not accelerate while in a neutral position. It then began to shut off while driving down the road and i would have to put it in neutral to coast until i could crank it back up. The problem only gets worse. After awhile, it will not crank back up. Turns out it had a recall on the ecm, but first i had to replace the crank sensor, $150.00 at the local dealership. Completely solved the problem tho until recently, which brings me to this site for my own problems that may or may not deal with this crank sensor. Hope this helps.

I got the crank shaft sensor and the cam sensor replaced and it is running fine now. I know the 2002 models have been recalled for the sensor issues...we should complain so they will pay for these repairs (hopefully)...but I am curious...what is the problem you are experiencing now?? do I have this to look forward too?

hopefully not! i got a flat tire, and put the spare on til had time to get the match to my other tires ordered. car sat for four days while i drove our truck. went to get in it mon morn...battery dead. its original 2004 battery, went and got a new battery, car would start, go dead. then not start at all. after many hours of research on this site I found that many people also have same probs we did. i found a post saying to turn the key to on, leave for two seconds turn back to off, pull key out, turn back to on 2 more sec then crank so i ran to my car and IT WORKED!!! THE ONLY reason i havent traded it in due to the hassles it gives me is because im so close to payoff! My suggestion- if you plan on keeping a car payment and you have already started experiancing the probs, trader er in. As for my car, we'll see if it will actually get me to the tire shop tomorrow. P.S. If you have any probs concerning yours, I'm a pro at this point. Everything that can go wrong, I probably have experiance on!
#2099 of 2710 New transmission mount for Altima '07?
Nov 12, 2007 (9:05 am)
Just as everyone else I have been having problems with my Nissan Altima '07. It has been the worst car ever and im stuck with it for the next three years...(by the way anyone has any ideas how can i get rid of it without loosing to much money?) any ways i took it to the dealer because it was rattling and shaking when accelerating and even more shaking when going above 60miles... they changed the transmission mount.. of course without even consulting me... but does anyone know if this is the issue? i thought these repairs were for old or worn out cars...
