How to Troubleshoot a 2002 Nissan Altima


The Altima has gone through four generations of redesigns. However, from 1994 to 2008, the Altima had numerous factory recalls. Despite being considered an overall safe car, the 2002 Nissan Altima had over 10 safety-related recalls. All of these are covered at no charge by Nissan. You'll need to know some of the more common safety issues, however, before you take it to the dealer.

  • Note if your Altima appears to stall at low speeds. If it does, your Altima may have a faulty crankshaft position sensor. This item can be replaced by an authorized Nissan dealer at no charge.

  • Check to see if your airbag warning light is on. The driver's side air bag electrical connector is prone to coming loose. Once this light is on, your airbag will not deploy in the event of a crash. Have this serviced by a Nissan dealer at no charge.

  • Check to see if your Check engine service light comes on while having intermittent engine power loss. The circuit board for the crank position sensor has a faulty solder joint and will cause this malfunction. It can be serviced at an authorized Nissan dealership at no charge.
