About Nissan Consult

Your friends and family call you the Car Whisperer, watching in awe as you accurately diagnose and fix your car, time after time. You feel a bit guilty taking the credit when your Nissan Consult does the hard work. When your Nissan decides to stay home sick, the Nissan Consult helps you figure out why. One end has an electrical socket, letting you plug it into your car's cigarette lighter or electrical outlet for power. You can find a USB cable on the other end, which attaches to a laptop or computer. This system comes with special diagnostic software that transfers information from your Nissan's computer system to your own computer. Once plugged in, you can view a screen on your computer showing a dashboard with your car's vitals, including engine output, RPMs, and speed. This screen checks for problems in different areas, such as power steering, the air conditioning unit, start signal, fuel pump, and more. These units come in a series with different numbers indicating compatibility with Nissans in various years and models. The Nissan Consult 2 connects to Nissans made between 2001 and 2003. The Nissan Consult 4 works with cars aged 2005 and older. Search for these diagnostic tools on eBay, where a large inventory lets you choose the one you need.
