Hello everyone,

For starters: the car I'm driving has less than 30k miles and is a 2014 Nissan Versa 1.6 SV.

For the past week or so, I've had the yellow, non-blinking Check Engine Light on. The car seems to be driving perfectly fine, with nothing out of the ordinary.


Finally took it in for a diagnostic and got P0705 as the error code.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? Is this something I can fix pretty easily? Cost estimates?

I appreciate any input.

Googling it looks like the indicator switch for what you have selected that is on the cvt. Depends if you can get the part. A lot of cvt parts you can remove, test, but Nissan does not sell. Your choice is to get one from a junkyard or replace the whole cvt.

Your best bet would be to bring the car into your Nissan dealership for diagnosis. This particular issue may be covered under the "Power train" warranty which runs for 5 years or 60,000 miles.
Without the proper diagnostic tools and software, you may be shooting in the dark trying to make the repair yourself. Good luck!!!


Possible causes Faulty Park/Neutral Position Switch Misadjusted Park/Neutral Position Switch Park/Neutral Position Switch harness is open or shorted Park/Neutral Position Switch circuit poor electrical connection What does this mean? When is the code detected? The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position and sends a signal to the TCM. Possible symptoms Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) P0705 Description The park/neutral position (PNP) switch includes a transmission range switch. The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position when the shift lever is in the N or P shift position and sends a signal to the Transmission Control Module (TCM).

I'm not going to suggest the best thing for you to do but what I found was a link to something that made sense in my case. Nissan Versa Hesitation, P0705 ? Ricks Free Auto Repair Advice Ricks Free Auto Repair Advice | Automotive Repair Tips and How-To
My driver side rear running lamp and turn signal bulbs were not working causing the common fast blinking situation. Replaced the bulbs, lasted a while, and then it started happening again but under closer inspection, found that the bulbs were fine.(swapped them with the passenger side). Reason why I mention this is when I looked up the P0705 (Advanced Auto Parts free scan) it translates to a Transmission Range Sensor A circuit. Now at 103K, I thought my CVT was just getting old/worn and maybe the belt was the culprit. The link suggests that you check inside your tail lamp assemblies for corrosion before replacing the Range Sensor. I'll do that this weekend. If replacing the range sensor is the solution, I'll be back to see if anyone knows where it is located on a '13 Versa sedan CVT.

It is amazing how a seemingly unrelated electrical component can induce enough noise/disruption into a circuit to effect something else. I've not run into this, but I've seen various youtube videos on it. Problem is, finding a tech who's willing to troubleshoot to this degree, has the resources and experience is tough.

Check out this web page it has a tech bulletin about P0705 Shows rear tail light assembly as culprit .

there is a circuit board on the tail light assembly this may help.

I'm also having this issue. I've just checked both tail lamp assemblies, they're in perfect condition (btw, if the corrosion is bad, as pictured in the service bulletin, you can probably see through the lens without removing the assembly).

This began on my parents car while they were driving and after I drove around for a bit, seemed to correct itself. The symptom was present 100% of the time initially, when the throttle was opened, the engine would only rev to about 1800 RPM (even at WOT) and the car would only move slowly (about 10-20 km/h). I had accidentally opened the trunk (probably pressed the button with the keys in my pocket, either that, or my parents had been driving around with it open, which I doubt). And decided to check the reverse lights. I turned the ignition to run and put the parking brake on, then placed the gear selector in reverse. When I went outside to check the reverse lights, they were off (at least the left one was), and when I closed the trunk, they turned back on. I'm assuming some faulty connection was jarred back into contact.

At this point I went out for a drive, the problem was still present, but quickly disappeared. The car functioned normally for the rest of the second test drive, and didn't duplicate the problem.

I also noticed there was a smell of burning electrical insulation, I think it was after I closed the trunk, but I can't be sure. It was definitely after my first test drive. I don't think it was the OBD module, but I suppose it could've been. My concerns are now that the problem lies in a harness somewhere, the gear selector and associated switches or the TRS itself. I'm hoping it's not the TRS or the CVT. I'm also wondering if it has to do with the CVT temperature, because the behaviour would fit that situation also.

Can anyone suggest my next troubleshooting step? I'm going to check the resistance of the circuits in the tail lamp assemblies before I re-install them, but I'm not expecting to find anything. After that, I guess I'll go for another test drive and see what it does. Thanks in advance for any help!

Edit: I forgot to mention, both the TCM and ECM have set code P0705.

Update: I went for another test drive this morning, it was colder than the last test drive I took. The car behaved flawlessly. My current theory is that this is an electrical fault in the reverse lamp wiring (which may explain the non-functioning reverse lamps when the trunk was open). It could even have been a bad ground on the tail lamp assemblies. At this point I'm going to have to wait and see if the problem returns/gets worse.
