Stop going to Autozone, they do not have the tools to properly diagnose what is wrong.
They only read codes that are set by the ECM. That's it, nothing more.
AZ can't diagnose the issues you are having.

You need a shop, or dealer, to do a proper diagnosis of the many problems with your car.
Yes, they cost money, but most waive the fees if you get the repairs there.

I have a scangauge 2 and can clear codes. Better odb2 computers car read sub codes as well as pending codes and access other menus such as for transmissions and air bags. For your speed issue you should see the D on your dash blinking to indicate a problem with the cvt.

You don't happen to have your spare on do you? I had the same problem when I had to use the spare tire.

I took my car to Muffler Man Service Center, which I trust, hoping they have a better scanner and could find more errors. Unfortunately, they also caught 2 errors - P0500 and P455. As I'd replaced the Canister Purge Valve as suggested for P455 and the output shaft transmission speed sensor, they didn't know what to do, either. They called Nissan and was told it was not very common but Nissan did see some of those issues. Nevertheless, Nissan didn't have a straight solution. Actually, I had scheduled to take my car to Nissan next Monday for recall repairs. When I mentioned all the issues over the phone, Nissan didn't even offer to help. So, I cancelled my recall repairs.

I will pick up my Versa this evening from Muffler Man Service Center and will just drive the car for short trips until it dies, which may not happen soon as it drives and runs pretty well with all the lights on. We'll see how many more days I can still drive it.

No, I'm driving on 4 pretty new tires. Thanks for that info still.

Nothing flashes on the dashboard and that gives some comfort about going on driving it. People say, if anything flashes, that means the issue is urgent and serious. Not that case in my situation.

Off the wall question: has the car ever been in a wreck?

What city and state do you live in? Maybe someone is near you can take a look?

Yes, my nissan dealer isnt too friendly. The last visit they were nicer, but between the way they behave and their high prices Im likely to never own a new nissan again.

Depending on your state you may get by with lights on your dash. Other than not knowing your speed all your brake related features should be disabled like traction control, skid, anti lock brake and force distribution. So basically you have regular brakes before computers were involved. You should notice the cvt behaves differently too as it uses the abs sensor to know wheel speed to better select the cvt ratio for speed, throttle, etc.

Some states stick a sensor up your tail pipe, others plug a computer into your computer port, others just check things.

I replaced all 4 wheel bearings and now I’m getting a P0500 A error code. Is there any way to tell which of the 4 wheels is generating the error? One of the bearings could have been put in backwards(if that makes a difference with the reading, I don’t know). I don’t want to have to press out each individual bearing to press it back in just to check if the code clears. Especially when I may be pressing out bearings that are fine. There was no indicators on the master pro bearings I pressed in to tell me if it was put in the right way. The previous bearings had rings. For all I know I could have damaged the speed sensor when pulling it apart. I’d like to at least focus on the problem wheel first, starting with the bearing and moving to the sensor. Does anyone have suggestions?
