  • well, if they can verify the sensors are bad, let them replace them. Also tell them you would like to see/keep the old ones. The big questtion, if they replace them and it doesnt solve the problem, you shouldnt have to pay for the parts. if they agree, no loss to you and all is ok.

    I also have a 04 titan crew cab,80,000 miles and no problems as of yet. If your cranking and sure your getting fuel, than your sensors are working,If not your fuel pump will automatic shut down ,but your saying it some what catches and tries to start, this tell me your sensors are working. will look into this matter and repost what I find. Hope this helps you.

    If you buy an electrical part,that still does not fix the problem,99 percent of the time you CAN NOT return it, It`s yours to keep,So please keep that in mind,for anyone changing out electrical components.
  • Now my truck doesn’t want to start…I had a friend mechanic come over the pass 3 days to do process of elimination. Reason 3 days 1 hour a day and because 2 different computers were not giving any codes. We checked fuel pump, pressure in the engine, fuses, relays. Until I remembered, I used a key that I have never used before to move my truck. Nissan gave me 3 keys when I bought the truck. 1 is mine 1 is my wife’s 1 was thrown in the garage and found this passed weekend and used to move my truck. Our trucks have an anti-theft shut off, so if a key is not programmed or not used at all it can lose the program stated by a tech your truck will shut down so it can’t be stolen. Do you recall maybe sticking a different key in even if was a spear that you never use? Check it out only bad part is getting the vehicle down to the dealer and reprogramming the keys and truck.
  • Has anyone heard of this?

    Never heard a key losing it`s program, So I started doing my home work, If A programmed key comes in contact with a strong magnet it might/ lose it`s program, so this you need to watch out for, Only thing That I found that will make a key lose it`s program.

    All titan trucks in the year 2004---2005 are covered for 75,000 for the brake problem, free of charge---once the miles are over that ---you are on your own--SO do what I did I have a 2004 model with 80,000 miles, once it turned 75,000 miles I put on Brimbo Brakes, ALL rotors with the holes drilled in them and slotted, wow what a diff. it makes. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND---WHEN CHANGING TIRES AND REINSTALLING THEM TIGHTEN THE LUG BOLTS IN A CROSS PATTEN --OVER TIGHTEN ONE OR MORE BEYOND SPECS. WILL DAMAGE THE ROTOR-MAKING IT WARP--SO PASS THIS ALONG.
  • So if it loses its program and you go to use the key will it shut down the vehicle or activate an anti-theft security system? Will this cause the truck just to keep turning no spark doesn't fire up?
  • titan8titan8 Posts: 41
    Mike,I also have a Titan truck, Titan trucks has a built in HIGH TECH security system, If the computer sees any kind of tampering going on, The Chip in the computer system will erase it self and totally SHUT DOWN the electrical system protecting the vehicle from getting stolen. REMEMBER you can ONLY get this fix by the dealer and no one else, special codes are needed to reprogram the computer.Hope this help you out.
  • Titan8, thanks I've heard of this happening but you just confirmed it for me. I just have 1 problem towing the vehicle to the dealer. I will put this at the top of my list and fill you in on the results once I get it down to the dealer. Thanks for you input :)
  • titan8titan8 Posts: 41
    your welcome anytime, please feel free to ask me any question on the titan--If i dont know I will find the answer asap. If you have AAA service or know anyone thats has it, you can get it towed free to the dealer.Just a reminder.AAA is a great great service!
  • Titan8, got my truck fixed, computer IDPM... this seems like its a on going problem with the Titans. Do you think they might do a recall on this? $540.00 part and labor
  • titan8titan8 Posts: 41
    Hello got your reply,Glad your truck is fixed,I have not heard of any computers failing on the Titans,But I will sure will be looking into it right now and letting you know,Only thing about recalls,To get a recall on vehicles,A bunch of computers has to go down to start an alert system before someone really gets hurt. It wont hurt to make a call to Nissan Head quarters to find the correct answer, If this is an on going problem, yes I would say you have a case to fight. Hope I answered your question.
  • does anyone have the information for what the 06 titan 4x4 crew cab drive shaft angles should be? I'm talking both angles from the transfer case back, the angle of the shaft where it goes into the transfer case, and where it meets the differential.
  • titan8titan8 Posts: 41
    To get a true accurate measurement I would call Nissan Head quarters and talk to the engineering dept.
  • How does one call Nissan and speak to engineering, any pointers would be appreciated! i can never get passed the "customer service reps" since they always point me to the dealerships and the dealer says they dont have that info and that I need to call HQ.
  • titan8titan8 Posts: 41
    In the back of your owners manual there should be a list of number to call Nissan Head Quarters. Once you talk to Nissan REP. ask them "Please put you through the Mechanical engineering dept".

    06 Titan, 14K rear tail pipe rusted off!! Rear brakes were serviced by the DEALER!!
    @7K but @14K DEALER stated that 1K was needed to replace the rear rotors and
    pads. The tail pipe rusted off also, The dealer called everything bad luck and weather causing the problems. I will be replacing all of the rotors and installing
    ceramic pads. I will never purchase another NISSAN product. The dealerships could
    care less once you pay drive the vehicle off of thr lot!!!!

    $1K is a bit steep for a rear brake job even with replacing the rotors. You don't by any chance use the truck to launch a boat? That would be the only reason I could see in needing to replace the rear rotors and the tailpipe rusting off.
  • Recently the brake MC on my 05 took a dump into the booster. I had a buddy bring the parts from the States ( I live in Mexico) I refilled the MC and had no-assist brakes and drove that way for a month. The MC did not leak again. Hey I'm a Mexican driver we don't need no stinkin brakes !!
    Replaced the booster and MC. After replacing the MC and booster the brakes have started to drag, sometimes severly sometimes only a little sometimes not at all. When it first occured I was away from home and the brakes were almost locked completely. I disconnected the booster with no effect. Next I thought the push rod on the MC needed adjusting so I pulled up on the brake pedal and it alleviated the lock up temporarily. Readjusting the MC push rod seems to have made the problem occur less and less severely but has not eliminated it. Pulling up on the brake pedal still seems to remove the problem temporarily. This makes no sense to me. What am I missing?

    As I see it the brake switch limits the adjustment of the push rod ?? I can't figure out if the switch is adjustable. I adjusted the rod so that the brake light is just off. If I shorten the MC push rod more the brake lights are on all the time.

    I have 04 Titan Crew cab,I had the same Problem with the tail Pipe, Was told by Nissan Mechanic very common-and very easy to fix, The Mechanic welded a sheet of metal around the pipe to fix where it was broken and looks like it was never broken,cost me 50 bucks.Check with the dealer about the brakes,I was covered up to 75,000 miles for any brake work, and paid by Nissan,Now that I have 80,000 i have changed over to the slotted and drilled rotors and all new pads, Semi metallic pads-REMEMBER one thing, IF you use ceramic pads your rotors will not LAST as long. Ceramic pads wears out the rotors faster and the pads will last a bit longer, you want the other way around to save money.NO MECHANIC will tell you this because it`s a money making deal, Don`t believe me start asking around.If I were in business and doing brake jobs, hell ya sell the ceramic because I know you will be in buying rotors real soon.But go with the drilled holes and slotted rotors, you pay alittle more but get great life out of them.Hope I helped you out.

    Reading your comment, One thing I need to know--Do you have ABS BRAKES on this vehicle? Another comment you never want to touch the or adjust the push rod,will wait for your reply, so I can help you more on this problem.
  • Yes, ABS brakes. Its a stock, stripped down model, no fancy stuff. Already adjusted the push rod !! :cry:
  • titan8titan8 Posts: 41
    Just got your message and hoping you are sitting down, I was looking into your problem and asking a good friend who works at the dealership.He told me,First thing the push rod must be set back to factory settings before you attempt to start anything else.The computer is what controls your braking system,Is your ABS LIGHT ON? ON THE DASH PANEL.There is a false signal telling to apply pressure to your braking system.These ABS brakes works the same way as an aircraft,fast pulsing system when pressure is applied.Ok First thing first---you need to find out the push rod setting and get it back to factory settings--very important--if not your brakes can and will LOCK UP WHEN YOUR DRIVING YOUR VEHICLE!! i AM trying to get more information to help you out.
  • NO. the ABS light is not on. Thanks for your help.
  • titan8titan8 Posts: 41
    Are you still having brake problems?
  • Not as bad. I readjusted the push rod. The were dragging the other day but only after I had parked for a couple of hours. I wonder if they can reset the computer if I get it to a dealer down here?
  • titan8titan8 Posts: 41
    Yes I would try to get it to the dealer as soon as you can, not only your wearing out the pads BUT your taking a hugh chance of over heating the rotors and they will start to warp, not a good thing,Sounds like, After you adjusted the push rod you did see a difference, that is a good thing.

    This truck has only pulled a 1Ton trailer and has not been called upon to work.
    i.e. hauling heavy loads ect. or driving off road. It should be noted that the reardiff. breather rusted off around 23k. this Junk Wagon now has approx. 28K, I am starting to get MIL lights.

    Hello, Still looking into your problem, Are all four wheels locking up? or just the rear,If the rear are locking up, The emergency brake pads are bonded and are found to come unglued from the backing plate,If this happens the shoes gets lodged into the rotor/drum,causing the wheels to bind or seem the brakes are being applied.To find if this is true--every easy to do--jack up rear end-USE JACK STANDS!!!!!!! Remove tire, try to remove rotor-if rotor wont come off-- you got problems with the Emergency brake shoes---Check both wheels!!
