2000 Maxima's were notorious for having problems with the ignition coils (one on each plug wire) going bad one at a time. The engine will ok but will kick a fault light after just one missfire. Nissans way of fixing this problem is to replace ALL coils at once for $800. This may be your problem. Hint: The front and back coils are different and are easy to replace yourself.

You must put the computer on it when the light is lit. other wise it will show no fault. If that does not work I suggest you check every plug that goes to an electronic part under the hood. One of these plugs may be rattling or loose.Just unplug and re-plug all the units you can find. Make sure you do this with the car off.

My service engine soon light is on. I have a known problem of a SDM being out (my airbags will not function)My service engine and the airbag light are constantly on because of this. Is the SES light on...


The service engine soon light will not be relate to the airbag light. You will need to have your obd3 Diagnostic Trouble Codes read Most auto parts stores will do this for you. This will also pinpoint the cause of your SES light. If your bags have not been deployed you can have the control module reset at www.myairbags.com for a reasonable price.

Service engine soon light came on, what would cause it to come on


a service engine soon(SES) light, malfunction indicator light(MIL) or check engine light coming on means you have one or more error codes in the powertrain control module(PCM). these will need to be scanned or read with an OBDII code reader to determine what the problem is. most likely an emissions sensor has failed. but this could be any of a dozen or more sensors or meters causing the light to come on, and once you have the error code you need to pinpoint the failed part. hope this helps, good luck!

I have a service engine soon light and the code that appeared when check is 1481, do you know what this means?


Service Engine Soon (SES) or Check Engine Light On, DTC P0480, P0526/P1481/P1484 Set (Replace Engine Cooling Fan Wiring Harness) #05-06-02-012B - (10/19/2006)

Models:2004-2006 Buick Rainier
2002-2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer, TrailBlazer EXT
2002-2006 GMC Envoy, Envoy XL, 

Some customers may comment that the Service Engine Soon (SES) or Check Engine light is illuminated. This condition may be intermittent and upon investigation, the technician may find either DTC P0480, P0526, P1481 or P1484 set.

This condition may be caused by the cooling fan harness chaffing against the plastic guide it routes through. This contact may damage the insulation of the wires enclosed in that harness.

Replace the wire harness: 
Part Number 89024920 Description Harness Assembly, Engine Cooling Fan Wiring

Good luck and keep me posed.

Service Engine soon light flashing or constant


code 1637 is a generator l circuit code code 300 is a multiple misfire code. from what you are describing i would lean towards wiring problem with alternator circuit.

The L-terminal circuit from the generator is a discrete circuit into the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) . The PCM supplies the ignition voltage to the generator lamp feed. This ignition voltage is pulled low by the generator once the ignition switch supplies ignition 1 voltage . The voltage stays low until the generator turns. When the generator is up and running, the PCM detects ignition voltage. Therefore, with no failures with the vehicles charging system, the lamp terminal circuit will go low 0 volts when the ignition switch is powered up and then goes to the ignition voltage after the engine is started.

I find it hard to believe you need a third alternator. if you do something is going on to burn them up. have them check wires might have a harness rubbed thru grounding out at times

The service engine soon light would have nothing to do with the oil or the coolant. There are many things that can cause the SES to come on, and some of them will cause the traction off light (TRAC OFF) or similar to come on because the traction has been dissabled. You will need to have the check engine light codes scanned. There will be trouble codes stored in the computer. From there the problem would need to be diagnosed, problem repaired, then codes cleared. Here is site with a list of some typical trouvble codes......
