2005 Nissan Titan LE 5.6L (VK56DE Gas) 5-spd (RE5R05A)

Hey all, 

I have a question, this truck has had a reman transmission install bought from the dealer 5 speed 4wd. When I go into read the tcm part number I have a part number for the wrong truck installed. I thought the tcm would be blank with just numbers. So when I go to program this tcm would I still program as a blank tcm? Also I tried to get the part number from Nissan parts and no luck. I called the dealer we got the transmission from and parts didn't want to help at all told me they can't give that info out anymore. How would I verify the correct tcm part number? We have the old core and I plugged in the old tcm and got the part number. I want to make sure that this part number is correct. I am worried it may have had a junk yard unit in it and want to make sure the tcm part # is correct for warranty purposes. After programming is there a relearn process you have to do? 

Thank you all for the help and Happy holidays 

Kyle

What part number are you reading from the replacement unit? What software are you using?

You wouldn’t have to program the TCM. It’s not a CVT transmission. I have replaced a few valve bodies and also one transmission on a Titan and never had to program it. The TCM is built into the valve body

Hello Kyle, I would call the general manager of that dealer and ask for an explanation in writing. They sold the tranny, but will not provide the information? Sounds like there is an issue with the parts department. Seems like everyone these days has a personal agenda aka “sand box” to protect. How can you expect any kind of warranty if they do not support the parts they sold? The relearn is a…

Good evening Kyle, When you say you checked Nissan parts I assume you mean the website? If it isn't there you can also try repair link. If you don't have it, I'd be happy to check for you if you'll post the VIN. Or you can set up a Repair link account if you like. Usually pretty straightforward but may take a day or 2 to get approved. Hope that helps.

Hey Zachary, you mentioned set up a repair link, is that through Nissan’s website?? I just haven’t heard of that before.

No sir. It's an independent entity. Works with local dealers to let you see their parts catalog and order through the online portal. Some shop management software (like Napa Tracs for example) integrates with it and makes adding parts to the RO easy. Not all dealers participate but you usually get a little bit better pricing on parts when ordered through repair link. GM vehicles show a great RPO…

Pin out the old valve body and read the old cal. Then use that cal to download the file to use with NERs.

The reman unit that was installed has a part number in the tcm all ready. I looked up the number and its for an 04 titan. So I plugged in the original tcm/valve body and got the part # the vehicle came with. I used the launch to read the part # from both tcms. I wanted to try the Nissan R2R software. Anybody have luck with it?
