Nissan J2534 ? NERs

Terry Diagnostician Milton, Florida Posted   Latest  

Seeking advice from techs that have programmed Nissan TCM, CVT and/or ECM using the NERS with any compatible J2534 devices. I always use the Drewtech RAP, and have them program any Nissan vehicles that come in. However doing so, when I ask if they can supply an updated calibration number or documentation verifying to my customer, that their vehicle has the latest calibration... they cannot provide me with. That's on a side note. My real concern is programming myself, buying the yearly sub for NERS and vehicle programming file costs. Also if anyone has programmed or re-program any CVT transmissions. I don't mean to bash Drewtech, cause they always been super helpful and of, course the leader in J2534 technology. No calibration number given, is NOT a deal breaker. Any help and guidance would be greatly appreciated. Best, T …

Unless you do a lot of Nissan programming I think you should keep using the RAP program. It is a total pain in the butt to do if you don't do very many!

Any time the NERS software is used. After the program has been updated the screen shows previous part number and then the new part number underneath it. I usually take a snip-it from the computer screen and save it to the computer so i can print it later or email it to the customer. Programming and Re-programming with Nissan are two different animals with Nissan or Infiniti. Programming a Blank

Most aftermarket scan tools can read the current calibration part numbers for the module. I highly recommend you know what this is currently, what you are updating to, and why. Some TSB’s require parts replacement along with the update. I use NERS and a I always print off a screenshot for my customers to show that the update was completed. As far as CVT transmissions go if you are just replacing

Terry, CAN programming with NERS is pretty safe. There are some issues here and there. Pre CAN programming I would not recommend with NERS. I use Consult 3 Plus and there is a reason I do. But the cost of tooling is steep. As far as your issue with latest calibration is use the link Matt provided and take a snip of what the latest calibration is for that date according to Nissan and then

Justin, That is a great source no doubt. Unfortunately, on some CVT TCM updates the website or even Nissan FAST wont help or clarify things. Have to reach out to Tweedle and wait for an answer or if you have a friend at the dealer who is willing to look up in ASIST. Nissan never has or never will make it easy.
