ECU error code P1493 - RCNT solenoid circuit malfunction

Post by kapsopod » Wed Oct 17, 2018 11:10 am

I've got a 2014 Qashqai 1.5 DCI and the engine light came on. When I connected one of these cheap bluetooth code scanners, it showed me

P1493 RCNT solenoid circuit malfunction

I have been trying online to find info on this error with regard to a Qashqai, but I haven't managed to. Does anyone know what needs to be replaced to fix this issue? The car drives as good as always has. I haven't noticed any difference to before the light came on.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry. Missed the video, so my previous comment is about the error code website. The problem is that what this video shows is completely irrelevant to what the error code website explains. Tomorrow hopefully I'll have it scanned in a garage and hopefully I will know more.
