Hello all. You are probably here because something is wrong with your D22 Frontier also known as the Nissan Navara in some countries.
Your vehicle has a ‘brain’, which means it has a computer processor, as a coder we refer to this as the CPU.
The brain can read the sensors on your vehicle and give you a hint about what it wrong.
Unlike a laptop or a phone your D22 has a port to connect to what is called an on-board diagnostics or OBD scanner.
That is a small pricey unit that reads the codes from your vehicle’s brain.
Now, as I have said in other videos, your first move is usually to go to a trained Nissan mechanic after all, they are the ones that usually have the OBD scanner.
However to be realistic that is not always possible and those scanners can be pricey.
It could also be that you like doing your own thing.
I am going to show you how you can read the codes on your own and figure out what is wrong with your vehicle if you do not have the scanner.
This method MAY also work for older model Nissan vehicles but I do not think it will work with the D40 or newer vehicles as they have their own method.
In fact, previous to this I saw a lot of wrong information about using newer vehicle methods for the D22 that had me spinning.
Thanks to my friends over at Nissan-Navara.net I was able to get this tip.
Anyway, so something is wrong with your D22 so the first thing you need is a paperclip.
If it has plastic around the paperclip then cut small pieces of it off on the ends so the metal is exposed.
Now, you are going to the driver’s seat of your D22 and put the key in the ignition.
Turn your vehicle on but do not start.
This is where you are going to take your paper clip and make into an arc so it can go into port 1 and 8 as I show you in the video.
Once it is fitted their securely count a couple of seconds and take out the paperclip.
You should now see your engine light on your dash begin to blink.
The blink codes tell you the codes.
I know, at first it looks weird but do not worry.
The first blinks are slow and give you the first part of the code.
The fast blinks give you the second part of the code.
So first slow blinks a pause and then fast blinks.
In this case… it gives one slow blink so we read that as “01”
Then three fast blinks we can read as “03”
Combined it is “0103”.
Now, here is the part where you will need the interpretation of those codes.
I am going to look at my chart for the code “0103” and it says “Coolant Temp Sensor”.
I have another video coming out soon about that.
There you have it, I will show some codes here but also will put a link in the description so you can access it.
