1993 Nissan Maxima SE 3.0L MIL Lamp on VIN: JJN1HJ0F3P
Apparently this customer I found out had two fuel injectors replaced once before to correct this code. Later he had two more replaced to take care of code which both times worked for awhile. Now he doesn't want to spend anymore money on this car. So apparently... Trouble codes: 45 (leaking fuel injector).

2005 Nissan Altima SE 3.5L NATS (Key Identification) VIN: 1N4BL11D85
