Nissan vehicles 1984-94 obd1 code retrieval

Nissan check engine light codes can be retrieved by accessing the engine computer usually located under the passenger seat, behind the glove box, center console or depending on the model. The computer itself stores the code and has a led light indicator in the box located in the top or side of the housing. The led light indicator could be single or double.

When activated, you have to either flick a switch or turn a screw in the computer box to start the led lights to flash after turning the key on but with engine not running.

Using a screw driver, turn the ignition key on and turn the screw driver fully clockwise and wait 2 seconds. Then turn the screw driver fully counter clockwise and the led light should start to flash in the computer box itself. When you have a single led light, you can read the code using this method:

Code 12 is showed by 1 long flashes followed by 2 short flashes

When you have a computer box with 2 led lights (usually a red and green light), the code can be read using this method: green led light will flash the first digit and the red led light will flash the second digit. Example: 3 flash of green and 4 flashes of red means a code 34.

Note: There are 5 different modes when accessing these codes and depending on the vehicle and model, please check with your dealer or ATS on what mode to use.

Here are some Nissan 1984-1995 popular common fault codes:

Code 11 Crank sensor angle
Code 12 Mass airflow sensor
Code 13 Engine coolant temperature sensor
