nissan primera CVT light flashing 16 times

Postby stu68 » October 30th, 2011, 10:10 am

hi guys,

am new to the site and need your help, i recently bought a nissan primera sport auto 2.0lt (petrol).
the engine management is on and the CVT light flashes 16 times, the car will only go in limp mode.
the guy i bought the car off had topped up the ATF using universal fluid, as he was told by a local car spares place it would do the job.
since then i have drained the ATF fluid and refilled it using NISSAN NS-2, this doesnt seem to have made a difference but in a dilemma as ive been told it should have been flushed first and others advise against flushing, what do you think???.
ive had a diagnostic on it an luckily no codes came up for the stepper motor, but wot i did have was P1791, P0745, and P0721.
so with your expertise & experience wot should be the right road to travel down .......many thanks :)

madness ........... the harness from by the distributor to the transmission change that first it normally shorts causing a series of error code making the car feel as it stuck on a high gear

check as anil says, its not making sense that all them sensors gone bad at once.

its ok to use NS-2 instead of NS-1, its an upgrade.

because you put in the wrong fluid to start with (universal fluid) a flush would have been the way to go.

is the car moving at all? just incase the belt in the tranny buss
