Crankshaft Position Sensor Problems of Nissan Altima
Nissan Altima owners have reported 58 problems linked to crankshaft position sensor (under the electrical system category).
#1 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2006 Nissan Altima
While at a red light, the power on my 2006 Nissan Altima shut off without warning. After trying to turn over the ignition several times, the vehicle finally started. I drove it to advance auto where they ran a diagnostic and advised that there were two error codes: p0725 & p0335 (engine speed sensor circuit malfunction & crank shaft position sensor circuit malfunction). Upon calling my mechanic,he advised that this has been a typical problem for this model and that he believed there was a recall. I called and have been advised by Nissan that there was a recall but my VIN wasn't part of the recall. However, Nissan was unable to provide which vehicles were actually part of the recall! there are many unresolved complaints regarding this issue, and I believe that this is a seriously dangerous hazard for drivers. What if the vehicle stopped on an interstate highway while driving at 65 mph? I would like verifiable information on what vehicles this recall covered, as Nissan seems to be deflecting some of their responsibility. This crankshaft position sensor problem happened on 10/12/13.

#2 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2006 Nissan Altima
Handling of the Nissan Altima crank shaft sensor recall is completely unacceptable. No notice of the recall was ever sent, which meant we found out the hard way: when the car stalled out in the middle of a major highway, without warning (exactly as described in the recall that wasn't sent) I only found the recall after a local non-Nissan mechanic told me about it, and then when I brought it into the dealer, they didn't understand the nature of the recall. Please help!. It was Jul. 17, 2013 when this crankshaft position sensor issue occurred.
#3 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
The car is a 2005 Nissan Altima. Vehicle suddenly turned off and dangerously stalled while driving at low speed without any warning. After several attempts of trying to start it, it finally did and I drove it for about 10 miles without no further incidents. Engine light came on and I took it to dealer who diagnosed it as the failure of the crank shaft position sensor which had earlier been reprogrammed in 2008 due to a recall to avoid such a sudden stall from happening. Nissan was not helpfull other than replacing the same sensor from and charge you a bomb for it. Nissan north America can a do a better job when addressing their recalls rather than providing a band aid solution to their recalls. During their recall campaign, they should have replaced this sensor from the get go rather than just reprogramming the ecm which still didnt address critical issue of safety for such a sensor failing without any warning. This crankshaft position sensor issue occurred Thursday, May 31, 2012.

#4 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2006 Nissan Altima
The vehicle involved was a 2006 Nissan Altima. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 1N4AL11D16_. 'service engine soon' lite came on. Dealer scanned for trouble codes p0725,p0335. Was told the "crankshaft position sensor" needs replacing, and was charged $130. The dealer wants to charge me $425 to replace 'cps'. Was told that there was no recall for this situation. Found out later thru the internet that there were 600 incidents concerning 'cps'. The dealer should fix this with no charge. Nhtsa #07v527000 recall explains the problem. Also see recall id #67654 from Nissan. This issue happened on Tuesday, December 25, 2012.
#5 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2003 Nissan Altima
The car involved is a 2003 Nissan Altima. Multiple times while driving between 30-45 mph the vehicle has stalled and not produced full engine power when pushing on the accelerator. This has caused serious concern for the safety of my family and myself. Check engine light came on and I took the vehicle to Nissan service repair (August 2011, ~94k miles). Nissan ran diagnostics and stated that the circuit board for crank/cam sensors had failed. Paid $430 to replace crankshaft and cam/crank sensors. Fast forward to December 2012 (~110k miles) where I experienced the same exact issues along with reduced engine power when pressing on the accelerator. Another local mechanic detected that the cam/crank sensors needed to be replaced again. I did some research and found out about recall #03v455000, which describes the exact symptoms that I have been having. I called the Nissan service department that replaced the sensors in 2011 who said that my VIN wasn't included in the recall so I didn't qualify. After reading the complaints on this site for this specific year/make/model, it is beyond me how nothing hasn't been flagged about this being an issue. All these people are having the same problems (multiple times) yet they are told their VIN's don't qualify under the recall?? something is fishy there. Other complaints with the same exact issue include the following numbers: odi id numbers: 10416743, 10384742,10370526,10342438,10332467, 10318898, 10318045, 10314479, 10283487, 10278805. Thank you for any assistance or light that can be shed on this issue. It was August 23, 2011 when this crankshaft position sensor issue occurred.

#6 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2006 Nissan Altima
The car involved was a 2006 Nissan Altima. While driving on the i95 the car shut off and would not restart at 55mph. Thank god, I did not get into an accident and was able to coast over to the guardrail. I had to have my car towed to my mechanic that informed me it appeared to be the crankshaft sensor and said since it was a recall item I should have it brought to my local Nissan dealer. I had the car towed to miller Nissan in fairfield CT and informed them of my mechanics findings. They checked the car and told me it was the fuel pump and replaced it even with me expressing that my current mechanic already checked that. After replacing the fuel pump they called me back and said it still wasn't working. It ended up being the ecm along with another sensor!! I expressed how upset I was that this sensor failed why I was driving at a high speed on the highway! I am currently working with Nissan corporate recall department because everything I'm reading is still indicating that the crankshaft sensor could cause malfunctions in other sensors in the car!! I'm not happy that Nissan is charging me for the new fuel pump they installed along with the sensors totaling $1,943,00!!. It was Saturday, September 8, 2012 when this crankshaft position sensor issue happened.
#7 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
The car involved is a 2005 Nissan Altima. My car's "service engine soon" light initially came on Sunday, January 29th. Shortly after, my car was beginning to jerk while driving on the highway and felt as if the engine was sputtering while on local roads. We took it to auto zone for a diagnostic and two issues were discovered: the speed signal circuit as well as the crankshaft position sensor has been malfunctioning and needed to be replaced. After some research, we found that several thousand 2005 Nissan Altimas were recalled due to the crankshaft position sensor malfunctioning with a possibility of damage and injury. We contacted Nissan village and were informed that my VIN number was not on the list of recalled vehicles. I have owned quite a few cars and I have never heard of this part needing to be replaced. My local Nissan dealer wants to charge $300-$400 to repair this issue and I believe, even though this recall was initiated back in December 2007, these repairs should be covered as this is not a maintenance issue but rather a serious overall defect in this particular make, model and year. We have no choice but to get the vehicle repaired as we have children but wanted to make sure this complaint was lodged for reporting purposes. We will also be contacting Nissan to inform them of this issue and our dissatisfaction with the fact that the Nissan dealership wants to charge us for a repair that should be covered under a past recall. Thank you. This crankshaft position sensor issue occurred February 1, 2012.
#8 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
The car was a 2005 Nissan Altima. Crankshaft position sensor bad, part has a known defect from the supplier yet Nissan will not replace or call recall notice. Car can shut down while driving, high risk for fatality. The failure date was 04/18/12.
#9 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
The car involved was a 2005 Nissan Altima. While driving down the highway, at 70 mph, my car bucked and then shut down. Losing all control, it completely turned off. While off you lose power-steering, abs etc. Luckily I was on a straight stretch of highway when this occurred. Came to a coasting stop. When to start my car again, and it took a while for it to turn over. The service engine light came on. The car would routinely buck, and hiccup as if it were trying to shut itself off. I called the Nissan dealer, have the ecm reprogrammed, as they thought that would be the issue. Got it done, and a day later, same thing happened, my car shut off in the middle of the highway. I got it running, and then as I got nearer home, the car shut down again at an intersection. I was lucky I didn't get in a wreck. Furiously, I called the Nissan dealer, and brought it back in. After doing some research, it was noted the cam/crankshaft sensors were bad. This is a known issue by Nissan, as there has been a recall for 2000 - 2003 models of their cars in the past. I got them replaced and paid out of pocket to do so. I contacted Nissan and they were disrespectful and not helpful at all. They know that the issue is still ongoing with their vehicles. Its a life threatening situation and should not be up to the consumer to fix the issue as its a flaw in their electrical system. There needs to be a recall for this right away as there are thousands of people this has happened to. It was December 1, 2011 when this crankshaft position sensor issue happened.
#10 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2004 Nissan Altima
The car involved is a 2004 Nissan Altima. The engine stalls while being driven at low speed due to an overheated crankshaft position sensor. Nissan says my VIN is not included in the recall even though this is the same problem. The failure date was Wednesday, October 19, 2011.

#11 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2003 Nissan Altima
My daughter was driving home from work in my 2003 Nissan Altima when the car suddenly stopped running, the steering wheel froze and she nearly ran off the road. Thank goodness there were no other cars coming and she was able to pull off the road with no incident. I pulled the codes and found it to be the p0335 (crankshaft position sensor) and p0725 (engine speed sensor). After searching the web, it appears there are many people with the same issue. I looked on the NHTSA website and found NHTSA campaign id number: 03v455000, Nissan recall no. R3022 that states exactly what did happen - the check engine light came on and the engine stopped without warning. The remedy is that a dealer replace the crankshaft position sensor. So, I called Nissan, found the other recall that is related to the sensor, took the car to the dealer (barely - I drove and the car stopped twice - again, lucky there was no crash). The dealer called and said he could not fix this recall because the sensor was bad. Now I have to go back and pickup the car and pray again that I don't have a crash coming home. Seems totally unreasonable that Nissan would have a recall for this exact problem - the crankshaft position sensor - for, among many others, 2002-2003 Altimas and yet there are many people out there with these cars that Nissan won't fix. I was laid off and certainly cannot afford a $300 fix for a $40 part so we will have to drive this death car until I can figure out how to get it fixed. And pray every time I get in it that we don't end crashing the car, hurting myself, my young twins, my older daughter or anyone else on the road. This is a severely dangerous issue and Nissan should replace all cars - not just a select few. It was Jun. 19, 2012 when this crankshaft position sensor issue occurred.

#13 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2006 Nissan Altima
The vehicle was a 2006 Nissan Altima. This 2006 nisaan Altima is experiencing the exact same malfunctions as in previous recalls. The crank sensor is causing the car to abruptly stop running if driven at low speed. Incident almost occured on PA turnpike during am rush hour traffic and finally stopped at a traffic light in a residential area in mid-day. I had to put caution lights on immediately and hope that I didn't cause an accident. Please re investigate this matter. It is such a major concern and needs immediate attention once again I see. Thanks so much!. This issue happened on Wednesday, October 26, 2011.
#14 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2003 Nissan Altima
The car is a 2003 Nissan Altima. Vehicle has stalled - engine stopped - in traffic several times. The cam and crank shaft sensors are the cause of this issue and Nissan refuses to recall these parts. It is absurd that the same parts have been recalled for other Altimas built in the same year, yet several vins, including mine, were excluded. The recall for my VIN was to reprogram the computer to prevent the failed parts from telling the computer to shut the car off. This recall has done nothing to prevent the issue. This is a safety issue, not only for myself and my family but also other drivers. This issue has been reported numerous times on the internet by other drivers. When will the NHTSA stand up for the citizens it was created to protect?. It was December 19, 2011 when this crankshaft position sensor issue occurred.
#15 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2008 Nissan Altima
The vehicle involved is a 2008 Nissan Altima. While driving approximately 65 mph, the vehicle lost power and then restarted soon after. The contact drove the vehicle to the dealer and they stated that the electronic control module needed to be reprogrammed. The mechanic also stated that there was a recall related to this specific failure. She called the manufacturer and was informed that her vehicle was included in the recall. The repairs were performed on the vehicle, but the failure recurred soon after. She returned to the dealer and was informed that the crank shaft position sensor needed to be replaced. The manufacturer stated that there was no recall for this failed component and they were not liable for the repairs. The vehicle has not been repaired. The VIN, NHTSA campaign id number, and failure mileage were unknown. This problem occurred on Friday, September 19, 2008.

#16 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2006 Nissan Altima
Subject crank position sensor. Subject car 2006 Nissan Altima 2. 5. Recall was received about the same time the car started dying while driving. When traveling at low speeds the engine will die causing a very dangerous situation when the car looses power and power steering stalling in the middle of the road. When traveling at freeway speeds the engine shuts off, the car looses power for approximately 3 seconds then violently jerks regaining power. Nissan dealer has stated that this is an ecm problem and that a reprogram will fix this problem. I took the car into the dealer and the reprogram of the ecm was completed. Now the car dies more frequently and now it takes considerable cranking to start the car when warm. Approximately 2 min. To restart. Nissan has tried to "band aid" a faulty crank position sensor with an ecm reprogram that is not working. The car abruptly dying is a very dangerous situation and can easily lead to uncalled for injuries and deaths stemming from this faulty sensor. I agree that the upgraded ecm program should read both the cam position sensor and crank position sensor in tandem as a redundant feature but if the problem is with a leaky sensor or a bad solder joint in the sensor, the sensor should be replaced under a recall. This crankshaft position sensor problem happened on May 1, 2008.
#17 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2006 Nissan Altima
The VIN of the problem Altima is 1N4AL11D76_. My 2006 Nissan Altima turned off on me coming to an intersection twice. I found out about the recall on the sensor so I take it in to the dealer to get it fix. What I am being told by the dealer ship is that my Altima is shutting off because there's oil on my cam and crank sensor which they are charging me $370. 00. I am hearing that they are getting alot of cars with this oil on the sensor. He said that the sensors had alot of oil on it. I asked then how come I never saw any oil spots where I parked? oil on the sensors sounds like this should be the recall. Can you help to see if the dealer is getting away with this? can you help??. It was Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2010 when this crankshaft position sensor issue occurred.
#18 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2006 Nissan Altima
The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 1N4AL11D86_. I purchased a 2006 Nissan Altima (brand new) 2 months after I purchased it, a recall required a "new" engine be installed. Since then it has been in and out of the shop for recalls. My problem now is the check engine light is on, and my car shut off on me in the middle of the road. I popped into auto zone to check it out and it is the crankshaft sensor. There is a recall for this on the 2006 Altima's but mine is not included. So I am supposed to pay 397. 00 to have this fixed! I don't think so. I feel I was sold a lemon. And I should not have to pay for this repair!! I can not drive my car because it shuts of or almost shuts off at different speeds ranging from 45 to 60. Nissan should recall all 2006 Nissan Altima's for this problem!. This crankshaft position sensor issue occurred Jul. 1, 2010.
#19 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2006 Nissan Altima
The vehicle involved is a 2006 Nissan Altima. While driving on interstate 580 in emeryville California in evening rush hour traffic my car began to jerk rapidly and then stopped while in traffic, the service engine light came on, after 5 attempts the car started. This happened numerous times while traveling to work on highway 50 and also while driving on surface streets. This makes me nervous and fearful when driving this vehicle and finally after the stopping multiple times on the interstate and at red lights, I took the car in for a diagnostic test and was advised my crankshaft sensor needed to be replaced and there was a recall per Nissan America for this known issue. I took the car in and was advised my VIN# was part of the recall but the damaged crankshaft sensor would not be replaced, only a reset of the ecm. I was advised that the ecm would not be reset due to the service engine light is on due to the faulty crankshaft sensor. I was also charged for a diagnostic test whicch basically confirmed the problem that service department was already aware of per the VIN#. There are thousands of complaints regarding the 2006 Nissan Altima and a the faulty crankshaft sensor which can cause the vehicle to stop. I am scared to drive on the interstate due to fear that the car will stop and cause a pileup and or even death. I have contacted Nissan America @1 800 647 7261 and they are not cooperative. They are aware of this issue however will not replace the defective crankshaft sensor. Since this is a known issue then I strongly feel that Nissan should take responsibility and replace the defective part. Customers should not fear for their lives when driving and should not have to pay to repair a known defect. I am considering taking legal action against Nissan since they failed to take responsibility and resolve my issue. It was Tuesday, Sep. 14, 2010 when this crankshaft position sensor issue occurred.
#20 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
2005 Nissan Altima has defective crank sensor. The throttle stops working not allowing fuel to the engine therefore stalling the car even in motion. Nissan has redesigned replacements but are incorrectly redesigned. Even with warranty Nissan refuses to remedy leaving people without cars. This crankshaft position sensor issue occurred Friday, September 28, 2007.
#21 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
The car is a 2005 Nissan Altima. I purchased my 2005 Altima brand new and I have already had to replace the battery twice. The first incident happened just passed the 36,000 mile mark (less then two years) so I was stuck paying out of my pocket. The second incident just happened in Dec. 17, 2007 where the car just turned off on me while driving at a low speed (possible cause: crankshaft sensor), and then the car would not start while at the intersection. A quick jump start got me up and running, but the battery tested bad at the local auto parts store. The failure date was December 17, 2007.
#22 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
My 2005 Nissan Altima had a recall for an electronic control module which I had replaced free of charge on reichert Nissan in wenenchee wa. On 10-22-2008. After driving 106 miles my engine failed. I called reichert motors and they responded to have the vehicle towed back to there dealership by a certain towing company; which I did. (by the way before this incident ,this car had never had a problem ; this all happened after the recall) after the car was checked by reichert they stated that the problem was now a crank shaft position sensor which was not related to the original problem so I would now have to pay for the towing charge as well as the problem with the crank shaft sensor. This seems a little strange to me that a car with no problems prior would all of a sudden develop this problem after 106 miles which was the distance to my home in omak wa from wenechee . Within 3 hours after the car was picked up from the dealership. It was a danger for the car to loose power while driving down the highway. I called Nissan about the problem( file # 6327690) and they stated they are not at fault. If I would have caused a serious accident with this vehicle I think they would of been at fault. This company need to be reprimanded for an unsafe vehicle that could cause serious problems on our nations highways. It was Wed., Oct. 22, 2008 when this crankshaft position sensor issue occurred.
#23 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
I am the owner of a 2005 Nissan Altima 2. 5sl. I received a recall notice that advised me the vehicle can stop running without notice which could result in a crash. The recall notice advised that the fix to this problem was the reprogramming of the ecm. To keep my daughter and I safe on the road, I took the car in for the recall as instructed. Before the recall, my service engine light never came on and my vehicle was running fine. Not to long after the recall was done, my service engine soon light came on. Last week I was driving my vehicle, with my 10 month old daughter in the car and the car stalled and shut down on us without warning. Thankfully another vehicle did not hit us. I took it to the dealership who advised me it was the crankshaft position sensor. After doing some reading I find that this has been a problem Nissan has been avoiding since 2002 and I was not the only owner whose vehicle shut down on them without warning. The events, patterns and failures I have experienced are the same sequence of events that so many Nissan Altima owners have reported and complained about. I contacted Nissan directly and was told that they are not responsible. I paid $285 to have the crankshaft sensor replaced. I thought responding to the recall would take care of everything and we would be safe; however, the recall did not stop my car from shutting down on me in the middle of traffic. I believe Nissan is recalling the wrong thing and dodging the responsibility of replacing the default crankshaft sensors that are causing these vehicles to shut down. A vehicle that is subject to shut down while driving without warning is very dangerous and should not be on the road. I saved the crankshaft sensor that was removed from my vehicle just in case someone decides to finally do something about this. An investigation needs to take place before someone is killed or seriously injured on the road or highway. This crankshaft position sensor problem happened on 03/06/2009.
#24 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
I own a 2005 Nissan Altima 2. 5l engine. I had a recall on my car where they would reset ecm to keep the crankshaft position sensor from overheating and the car shutting off. After I take my car into the dealership to have this done 9months later my car has less than 100,000 miles and I am having to replace my crankshaft position sensor. Talked with Nissan numerous times they refuse to pay for the defective part. Nissan should have to pay for the mistakes they made not me. Oh and then they charged me to dispose of the old part which they left in my car. I contacted my dealership to find out what the charge was for and he said that osha made them charge it for disposal of the part and when I told him the part was still in my car he said well it is for paperwork fee as well. This problem occurred on Wednesday, Mar. 25, 2009.
#25 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
The vehicle was a 2005 Nissan Altima. My car fails to start on occasion. The frequency is monthly. The engine sounds like it's going to start but just doesn't. If I wait several seconds and try again, then the engine starts. From what I've been reading everyone seems to be complaining that it's the crankshaft sensor. I thought the recall fixed this issue but apparently not. So many owners are complaining yet Nissan is doing nothing. This is my first Nissan and my last. I'll stick to Honda next time. This crankshaft position sensor problem happened on Sunday, March 22, 2009.
#26 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
The vehicle involved is a 2005 Nissan Altima. While driving my car down the road, the engine completely shut off. I pulled to the side of the road, and put the car into park. I attempted to start the car back up, and was unable to do so. I then had the battery replaced, and was able to get the car cranked again. The next day, I went into town, and the car did the same thing. I was able to restart it after a few tries, but it then drove funny the rest of the way home. There has been a recall on the car, but I was never informed of any recall. I found it after searching on the internet when I got home. I will be contacting the dealership tomorrow. Apparently the recall is for the crankshaft position sensor. This is a common problem in these cars. I am upset because I have never heard about this recall, and I am the only owner of this car. I bought it new. This is very dangerous, and could have resulted in a horrible accident. I am afraid to drive the car at all now, which means I have no means of transportation. This issue happened on July 27, 2009.
#27 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
The VIN of this vehicle was 1N4AL11D75_. 2005 Nissan Altima - crankshaft sensor. My 2005 pre-owned Nissan Altima just experienced crank/start problems yesterday. After computer diagnostics were performed, they discovered that the ecm and the crankshaft sensor were defective. The dealership informed me that the 2005 Nissan models had a recall on the ecm modules and the crankshafts. They advised me to contact Nissan to ensure this had not been previously corrected during the original recall. I contacted Nissan to find out that it had never been corrected. Nissan rep divya cheeran advised me that the ecm and frame were on recall however the crankshaft was not. I informed her that the dealership had already informed me of the recall for the crankshaft. She insisted the dealership was wrong and there was no recall of any crankshaft on any Nissan vehicles. I told her that I was looking at a consumer affairs report on the internet as well as the report/recall notice with national highway traffic and safety administration. She still refuted the fact that there had been any recall on the crankshafts for the 2005 Nissan Altimas. However, she advised me to take my car into the nearest dealership (sheehy Nissan in springfield, va) to have the ecm and frame fixed. She stated that once the ecm was fixed it would resolve the cranking and shutting off problems I was experiencing. I advised her that the mechanic at the dealership had already confirmed that would not remedy the problem with the crankshaft and I would like for Nissan to acknowledge the recall and fix the ecm and crankshaft. It was public knowledge and record that there was a known problem with this and could be potentially hazardous to my health and the health of my newborn who frequently travels with me. I advised her that $200 to fix the crankshaft should be nothing to Nissan as opposed to me filing a lawsuit with them if any harm came to me or my child due to this hazard. Can you please assist me with getting my car fixed?. This crankshaft position sensor problem happened on Thursday, March 18, 2010.
#28 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
I own a 2005 Nissan Altima. From the day I got the car there has been a problem with it stalling. Took it to the dealership and they said they could not find anything wrong. The recall that is on the Nissan for the crankshaft position sensor I was told that there was nothing wrong with mine. I have all the correspondence that I have with Nissan. But they refused to do anything about it. Well yesterday the car shut completely off going down the road and I was almost hit in the rearend. It did this 3 times before I got it home. Nissan needs to make this right before someone gets hurt. If not my car then someone else's. This is very dangerous and could cause a major wreck. This crankshaft position sensor problem happened on 07/30/2010.

#30 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
The vehicle was a 2005 Nissan Altima. My car would act like it was skipping a gear and jerk. It would also sometimes not start. The ultimate failure is that my car stalls while I'm driving it. It used to be every so often and has now become a daily thing. I am replacing the crank position sensor myself as this is the cause of the problem. Nissan knows this but has done nothing to remedy the situation. My car is out of warranty so it wasn't worth my while to even check with Nissan to have this fixed. This crankshaft position sensor problem happened on Wednesday, December 29, 2010.
#31 - Crankshaft Position Sensor problem of the 2005 Nissan Altima
