Are you experiencing transmission issues with your 2011, 2012, 2013, or 2014 Nissan Maxima? Is the car not shifting properly and displaying the code P1777? If so, we have an easy fix for you. In this article, we will guide you through the process of replacing the faulty solenoid causing the transmission problem. Don’t worry, it’s a simple task that you can do yourself with just a few tools.
– Red Shade
– 10mm Socket
– 10mm Allen Socket
– 5mm Socket
Before we dive into the fix, it’s important to first drain the transmission fluid. Raise your car and locate the black cover with a 10mm Allen key. Remove the cover and you will find a 10mm bolt securing the transmission pan. Once you remove the bolt, the transmission fluid will drain out.
Now, let’s proceed with the fix. Look for the solenoid that is causing the issue. In the video, the solenoid has already been replaced, but we will walk you through the process. Before disconnecting the electrical block, make sure to remove the 10mm bolt and 5mm end bolt. Once the bolts are removed, you can disconnect the block.
To install the new solenoid, follow the correct orientation, as shown in the video. There should be a latch on the solenoid that needs to match the latch inside the transmission. Align the solenoid correctly and securely attach it.
If you’re unsure about the correct part number, you can find it online. Searching for the specific part number for your Nissan Maxima will ensure that you get the right solenoid.
After installing the new solenoid, it’s time to add the transmission fluid back into the system. Make sure to use the appropriate transmission fluid recommended for your vehicle. Refill the transmission fluid to the correct level.
Finally, clear the error code from the car’s computer system. You can do this by using an OBD-II scanner or by disconnecting the car’s battery for a few minutes. Once the code is cleared, take your car for a test drive. You should notice that the transmission is shifting smoothly again.
In conclusion, if you’re dealing with transmission problems in your 2011, 2012, 2013, or 2014 Nissan Maxima and encountering code P1777, replacing the faulty solenoid is an easy fix. By following the steps mentioned above and using the necessary tools, you can resolve the issue yourself, saving time and money.
