  2. Turn ignition switch ON.
  3. Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.

TESTING CONDITION: Before performing the following procedure, confirm that battery voltage is more than 11 V at idle.

2.PERFORM DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

  1. Start engine and let it idle for at least 10 seconds.
  2. Check 1st trip DTC.

Diagnosis Procedure

Regarding Wiring Diagram information

1.CHECK GROUND CONNECTION

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Check ground connection E9.

2.CHECK AIR FUEL RATIO (A/F) SENSOR 1 POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT

Nissan Maxima. CHECK AIR FUEL RATIO (A/F) SENSOR 1 POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT

  1. Disconnect air fuel ratio (A/F) sensor 1 harness connector.
  2. Turn ignition switch ON.
  3. Check the voltage between A/F sensor 1 harness connector and ground.

3.DETECT MALFUNCTIONING PART

Check the following.

  • IPDM E/R harness connector F10
  • 15 A fuse (No. 37)
  • Harness for open or short between A/F sensor 1 and fuse

4.CHECK A/F SENSOR 1 HEATER OUTPUT SIGNAL CIRCUIT

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect ECM harness connector.
  3. Check harness continuity between A/F sensor 1 harness connector and ECM harness connector.
  4. Also check harness for short to ground and short to power.

5.CHECK A/F SENSOR 1 HEATER

6.REPLACE AIR FUEL RATIO (A/F) SENSOR 1

Replace malfunctioning air fuel ratio (A/F) sensor 1.

CAUTION:

  • Discard any A/F sensor which has been dropped from a height of more than 0.5 m (19.7 in) onto a hard surface such as a concrete floor; use a new one.
  • Before installing new A/F sensor, clean exhaust system threads using Oxygen Sensor Thread Cleaner [commercial service tool (J-43897-18 or J-43897-12)] and approved anti-seize lubricant (commercial service tool).

7.CHECK INTERMITTENT INCIDENT

Component Inspection

1.CHECK AIR FUEL RATIO (A/F) SENSOR 1

2.REPLACE AIR FUEL RATIO (A/F) SENSOR 1

Replace malfunctioning air fuel ratio (A/F) sensor 1.

CAUTION:

  •  Discard any (A/F) sensor which has been dropped from a height of more than 0.5 m (19.7 in) onto a hard surface such as a concrete floor; use a new one.
  •  Before installing new (A/F) sensor, clean exhaust system threads using Heated Oxygen Sensor Thread Cleaner [commercial service tool (J-43897-18 or J-43897-12)] and approved anti-seize lubricant (commercial service tool).
