This diagnostic software update will enhance the dealer?s ability to better diagnose and service the CVT by including two new Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) and enhanced active test capabilities for CONSULT-III.
In addition to the installation of diagnostic software, Nissan will also extend the warranty coverage on the CVT assembly (including internal CVT components, gaskets, and seals), CVT control valve body, and torque converter from its original duration of 60 months/60,000 miles to 84 months/84,000 miles (whoever occurs first). Coverage of other vehicle components remains unchanged, and all other terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions of Nissan?s New Vehicle Limited Warranty continue to apply. This CVT warranty extension is being provided as a customer satisfaction effort to address customer concerns; including those concerns expressed by the plaintiffs in class action litigation, and is subject to final approval of the settlement of that litigation. Prior to final approval, Nissan will make any necessary repairs that would be covered under the extended CVT warranty.
Dealers should install the updated CVT software in vehicles identified in Service Comm with I.D. PC500. No additional diagnosis or repair is required unless the customer indicated they have concerns about CVT operation during the interview process.
It should take approximately 1 hour to reprogram the Continually Variable Transmission (?CVT?) software.
What is involved in the control valve replacement? Do they have to pull the engine and CVT to do so?
