DTC detecting condition

Possible cause

P0520 EOP SENSOR/SWITCH (Engine oil pressure sensor/ switch circuit) ECM detects the following status continuously for 5 seconds or more:
  • A voltage signal transmitted from the engine oil pressure sensor is lower than 0.3 V.
  • A voltage signal transmitted from the engine oil pressure sensor is higher than 5.02 V.
  • Harness or connectors (EOP sensor circuit is open or shorted)
  • EOP sensor
  • Sensor power supply 2 circuit

DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

1.PRECONDITIONING

If DTC Confirmation Procedure has been previously conducted, always perform the following procedure before conducting the next test.

>> GO TO 2.

2.CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Check engine oil level. Refer to LU-7, "Inspection".

Is inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 3.

NO >> Check engine oil leak. Refer to LU-6, "Engine Lubrication System Schematic".

3.PERFORM DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

  1. Start engine and let it idle for at least 5 seconds.
  2. Check 1st trip DTC.

Is 1st trip DTC detected? YES >> Proceed to EC-340, "Diagnosis Procedure".

NO >> INSPECTION END

Diagnosis Procedure

1.CHECK EOP SENSOR POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT-1

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect EOP sensor harness connector.
  3. Turn ignition switch ON.
  4. Check the voltage between EOP sensor harness connector terminals.

Is the inspection result normal?


Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 2.

NO >> GO TO 4.

2.CHECK EOP SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF
  2. Disconnect ECM harness connectors.
  3. Check the continuity between EOP sensor harness connector and ECM harness connector.


  1. Also check harness for short to ground and short to power.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 3.

NO >> Repair or replace error-detected parts.

3.CHECK EOP SENSOR

Check EOP sensor. Refer to EC-342, "Component Inspection (EOP Sensor)".

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> Check intermittent incident. Refer to GI-39, "Intermittent Incident".

NO >> Replace EOP sensor. Refer to EM-94, "Exploded View".

4.CHECK EOP SENSOR POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT-2

Check the voltage between EOP sensor harness connector terminal and ground.

Is the inspection result normal?


Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 6.

NO >> GO TO 5.

5.CHECK SENSOR POWER SUPPLY 2 CIRCUIT

Check sensor power supply 2 circuit. Refer to EC-444, "Diagnosis Procedure".

Is inspection result normal? YES >> Perform the trouble diagnosis for power supply circuit.

NO >> Repair or replace error-detected parts.

6.CHECK EOP SENSOR GROUND CIRCUIT

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect ECM harness connector.
  3. Check the continuity between EOP sensor harness connector and ECM harness connector.

Is the inspection result normal?


Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 7.

NO >> Repair or replace error-detected parts.

7.CHECK ECM GROUND CIRCUIT

Check the continuity between ECM harness connector and ground.

Is the inspection result normal?


Is the inspection result normal? YES >> Check intermittent incident. Refer to GI-39, "Intermittent Incident".

NO >> Repair or replace error-detected parts.

Component Inspection (EOP Sensor)

1.CHECK EOP SENSOR

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect EOP sensor harness connector.
  3. Check the resistance between EOP sensor connector terminals.

Is the inspection result normal?


Is the inspection result normal? YES >> INSPECTION END

NO >> Replace EOP sensor. Refer to EM-94, "Exploded View".

Servicing air conditioner (if so equipped)
The air conditioner system in your NISSAN vehicle is charged with a refrigerant designed with the environment in mind. This refrigerant does not harm the earth’s ozone layer. Special charging equipment and lubricant is required when servicing your NISSAN air conditioner. Using improper re ...

General Precautions
Always use a 12 volt battery as power source. Do not attempt to disconnect battery cables while engine is running. Before connecting or disconnecting the ECM harness connector, turn ignition switch OFF and disconnect negative battery cable. Failure to do so may damage the ECM because ...
