    Had the same problem with a 2000 Sentra. The interanal ground was bad in the computer. the Nissan dealer charged almost $900 and could not figure it out. all they wanted to to is replace parts. I took the car to an independent shop and it cost me $175 to install a used computer and this fixed the problem.
