CVT reprogramming '12-14 models

Just a heads up, certain Versa's need to have the transmission control module for CVT's reprogrammed. At dealer right now for oil change when the service advisor told me.

Recheck it again, under service bulletin, NTB-15-069, it's part of the electrical system.

Here is another link:

I had the trim panel cut and the CVT reprogrammed as well about 3 weeks ago.

I don't notice the "clunk" when slowing down slowly, or when coasting down a hill.

@v039007
No biggie happens.
@Versa12
After driving the car some more today I have noticed the point when the torque converter locks up when it switches from gear drive to belt drive it no longer has that delay in transition some people have described it as a "spike". Also when slowing down it does not do the "clunk/spike" when the TC is switching back to it's original state. I'm satisfied with the reprogram so far. Any one else had it done, wish to share your experience?

I commented about this in this other thread:
2014 Nissan versa sv cvt shudder?

I'm just hoping it doesn't give us any real grief until we can afford to trade it in and get rid of it.

any one else having problems?

I took my car to the dealership yesterday after seeing some coolant leaking. They told me I had two recalls to do, one being the CVT reprogramming. I got that done and had no issues when I drove to work.. Driving home from work, my RPM's shot up to 4,000 but my car didn't pick up any speed at all. I pulled over, waiting a few minutes and then tried again. Everything was fine. This morning driving to work, I had problems with my car picking up speed. The RPM's aren't shooting up like they did last night, but it wasn't driving the way that it drove before I had this work done. Took it back to the dealership. They told me that basically when they reprogramed it, I have to "re-teach" my car how I drive. Does this sound right? Has anyone else had any problems after the reprogram?

The "Reason for Service Campaign" from the last page of the TSB, which is an example of a typical owner's letter: "On some potentially affected Sentra vehicles, the belt may slip when manually shifting from the L range to D range due to low hydraulic pressure. Belt slippage may result in noise, vibration, and poor acceleration. Left unrepaired, this condition may reduce the durability of the CVT."

Note that the TSB applies to both the Sentra and the Versa. I hope the fix is successful. I almost didn't buy my Versa due to it having a CVT and CVT's having a very mixed track record.

2012 Nissan Versa - 65,000 miles - I had my CVT reprogramming done last Monday. Tuesday through Thursday I experienced no issues however on Friday I experienced RPM spikes and the opposite, no response when pressing the gas. I now have P0965 - Pressure Control Solenoid B and P0846 - Transmission Fluid Sensor/Switch B error codes on my car. I took the car to Nissan this past Monday and the diagnosis is that I need an entirely new transmission($4000). I am waiting to hear from Nissan Consumer Affairs to whether or not they are going to help with the cost. How did you issue work out?
