Nissan’s Y61 Patrol sub tank fuel system

Operation Nissan’s sub tank fuel system, utilized in the Y61 range of Patrol’s, controls the sub fuel pump’s operation using three inputs in determining the operation of the sub fuel tank pump. These inputs are received to the sub fuel tank control module from: •

Main fuel tank full switch- built into the main tank gauge unit. When the predetermined level is exceeded, the full switch operates to stop sub fuel pump operation, preventing excess fuel from flowing into the main fuel tank. Sub fuel tank empty switch- built into the sub tank gauge unit. It senses the sub fuel tank fuel level. When fuel in the sub fuel tank drops below the predetermined level, the empty switch operates to stop sub fuel pump operation. If, after 1 hour of sub tank fuel pump operation, conditions are not met from either of the tank level switches, the sub fuel pump automatically stops. This provides a safety feature of the system. Dash mounted sub fuel tank switch- driver activated control.

) Wait at least 10 seconds.Diagnostics The sub tank system is capable of self diagnosis. If the system is in fail safe mode. by removing the battery earth terminal. the sub tank indicator light in the instrument cluster will flash a trouble code. Refer to the trouble code chart below. First group indicates the 'tens' of the trouble code [A].Check to ensure that sub tank warning lamp remains off. the light will flash 4 times per second as an indication at the beginning of each group of codes. turn the sub fuel tank switch ON and OFF more than 5 times. A 2. A long pause separates each trouble code [B]. • After turning the ignition switch ON. Make sure the sub tank indicator light in the instrument cluster flashes every 2 seconds. (Selfdiagnosis will then be activated. and then start the engine.

Second group indicates the 'units' of the trouble code [C]. After engine start. • • • • • • • • Erasing rasing The trouble code/s retained in the sub fuel tank control module memory. Exit self diagnosis (turn off IGN). (After starting the engine. Each trouble code consists of two groups of flashes.0 second flash indicates the start of the code group [D]. Recheck the codes are clear by activating the self diagnosis and confirm codes are clear. the sub tank lamp will flash at one second intervals).
