Nissan forklift codes – Note: This page is for forklifts using either K21 or K25 engines.
Q: How do I clear my Nissan forklift codes?
A: Clearing codes on a Nissan forklift can be a very intricate process for the user. It may be helpful to use a stopwatch during the process, as many steps require an accurate reading of time. It is also advised to read through the various procedures at least once as trying to wing it and perform the steps as you go may leave you lost due to the blinking lights and time constraints.

1. Turn the forklift key switch on while simultaneously starting the stopwatch.
2. Wait for 3 seconds, then proceed to press the forklift accelerator 5 times within 5 seconds. If it takes longer than 5 seconds to press the accelerator down 5 times, there is a chance you may forgo clearing the Nissan forklift codes.
3. Wait for another 7 seconds, then press and hold the forklift accelerator for 10 to 12 seconds until the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) begins to blink. You are now in Diagnostic Mode. If the MIL does not begin blinking, repeat steps 1 through 5.
Once the MIL starts flashing, you can start reading your Nissan forklift codes. The MIL will display 10 slow flashes; the forklift error code(s) will then follow.
Example: 1 flash (hesitation) 1 flash (hesitation) 8 flashes. This would indicate code P0118.
Example: 2 flashes (hesitation) 2 flashes (hesitation) 3 flashes. This would indicate code P0223.
After hesitation, another code may follow. If the MIL makes 10 quick flashes, pauses and gives another 10 quick flashes again 3 consecutive times, this would mean there are no codes stored in the ECM. After 10 slow flashes, the cycle is repeated.
To erase your Nissan forklift codes, the repairs must first be made. Following the necessary repairs, return to Diagnostic Mode. Hold the accelerator down for a minimum of 10 seconds, then release the accelerator and the Nissan forklift codes should be erased.
*If the accelerator pedal assembly has ever been replaced or disconnected on the lift truck, accelerator released position learning must be performed. This can be done in a few brisk steps. 1. Turn the ignition switch on and waiting for at least 2 seconds. 2. Turn ignition switch off and wait at least 10 seconds. 3. Turn ignition switch back on again and wait at least 2 seconds.
