  1. Gen2 Throttle/Pedal position code issues

    Repair Questions
    I bought a 2010 Xterra SE about a month ago. About a week and a half ago I started it up, after about 10 seconds it shut down. I tried getting it started again and though it was turning over it wasn’t starting up. I had pulled a couple codes from a check engine light a few days prior (p0123...
