Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: Engine speed signal circuit

Description

ECM sends engine speed signal to power steering control unit.

Diagnosis Procedure

1.PERFORM ECM SELF-DIAGNOSIS

With CONSULT

Perform ECM self-diagnosis.

2.CHECK HARNESS BETWEEN ECM AND POWER STEERING CONTROL UNIT FOR OPEN

Nissan Maxima. CHECK HARNESS BETWEEN ECM AND POWER STEERING CONTROL UNIT FOR OPEN

  1. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect ECM connector E10.
  3. Disconnect power steering control unit connector.
  4. Check continuity between ECM connector E10 (A) terminal 94
    and power steering control unit connector M59 (B) terminal 10.
