07 Murano Sensor issues?

Has anyone had problems with their sensors? In April ('12)my sevice engine light came on. The car totally shut down and I couldn't get it started. I had it towed to the dealership and they determined it was the cam sensor. They replaced it at no cost since the car is still under warranty. It drove great until last week (Jan '13). Again, the service engine light came on and this time I was able to drive it to the dealership. They determined it was the crank sensor. They replaced it at no cost, still under warranty. However, the very next day the light is back on and the car has shut down on me twice. Since it is the weekend it can't be looked at until Monday. I am terrified by this experience. Is this a common problem with 07 Murano's?

I'm over 90k miles on my 07 and had none of those issues. Sorry to hear that you are.

Welcome to the forum.

The problem may not be your car, it may be the person repairing your car.

When a modern car has an electrical or mechanical issue that triggers a fault code sometimes more than one code will appear. When that happens some mechanics, especially those with little experience or poor diagnostic training, will simply pick one fault code and replace the corresponding part. In reality, the problem lies with a different part that may have triggered a secondary code.

A mechanic with good diagnostic skills will examine parts "upstream" of the fault code to determine if they may have triggered it.

We have several members who have had dealers replace a handful of parts before finally getting to the problematic sensor.

No such issues with our 07 SL with 65,000 miles on it.
