Nissan Altima throws code P 505

Asked by Jan 14, 2014 at 10:43 PM about the 1998 Nissan Altima GXE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

98 Altima had total engine rebuilt. Head was warped, machined smoothed, runs  great.
Now engine light on, throws code P 505 and needs Ca. smog cert. Tech said it  will be
about $400.00. He let me know he isn't sure that it will fix problem. My question is
does 98 Altima need to complete a specific drive cycle for the  computer to reset/ re-
learn after rebuilt or do I just keep replacing sensors and parts.Most sensors, all
gaskets were replaced when engine was done.

You can try clearing the codes first and see if the light stays off, if it comes back on then you have an issue.....http://www.obd-codes.com/p0505
