    I purchased the vehicle in October 2013. A week later the vehicle sensor came on and began to stall on me. I returned the vehicle to the used car dealership and they replaced it.

    I began with having trouble starting my car. It would turn for about 5-10 seconds before the car would actually turn over. Then the traction control system would shut off on its own, but also be in slip mode at the same time. This occurred on and off for a couple weeks before the car finally quit working while I was driving. The gas peddle would not work so I decided to try the brakes and they pumped once and then locked up. I shut the car off which reset the electrical and everything worked again but I am still having trouble with the TCS and SLIP and the starting.

    This happened to me on my 2003 Nissan 350z engine. Engine stalled while I was accelerating on the highway from 40 MPH to 65 MPH. The Traction Control System and the Service Engine Soon light came on. This issue is very common on 2003 Nissan 350z models.

    You can call 800-647-7261 Extension 457328 to complain. But Nissan will not stand by their own faulty work and refuse to reimburse you. Nissan Consumer Affairs will hide/give you the run-around and not take any accountability for this oil camshaft position sensor issue.
