Nissan ECCS allows you to read any stored fault codes without any specialist equipment.
Below will show how you can read yours. The orientation of the plug may vary so please make sure you are looking at the plug the right way up before you try this on your car.
First of all you need to obtain the consult diagnostic plug location. This us usually in the same area as the fuse box.
Below is a typical example of what you are looking for.
Once you have located the consult plug you then need to grab yourself a short piece of wire or a paper clip.
Please read all the following instructions in full before you attempt to carry a fault code read out.
- Switch the ignition to the ON position but do not start the car.
- Depending on its orientation of the consult plug (see below) bridge the two lower left, or upper right pins on the consult plug with the wire paper clip for 2 seconds then remove the bridge.
- Observe and write down the sequence of flashed produced by the engine check light on the dash. using the information provided above.
- Once you are satisfied you have all the fault codes bridge the consult pins again and this will erase any stored fault codes and revert the ECU back its normal operation.
Understanding the fault code readout:
ECU fault codes are usually displayed on the engine check light on the dash, and are displayed by the number of flashes as well as the speed of the flashes.
For example, an ECU showing no recorded faults will display code 55. The first digit is shown as 5 followed by a pause. This then followed by the second digit. This is shown as 5 short flashes. Thus Code 55 - all clear.
Listed below are the fault codes and there meanings for the GTi-R.

|13||Engine temp sensor circuit|
|21*||Ignition signal circuit|
|34||Detonation sensor circuit|
|43||Throttle sensor circuit|
|55||No malfunction in the above circuits|
|*If code 11 and 21 are displayed at the same time, check the crank angle circuit first. |
