Question about 2002 Nissan Xterra
I bought an '02 Xterra, 2WD with 87K miles on it, and now has 89K - my fourth SUV. There are two things I've never encountered in any other car:
1. There is a switch on the auto-shift post, which on my old 1990 Stanza was a lock. On the Xterra, it initializes a dash light that says O/D Off, and I can feel a drive power reduction when I set the switch. I assume it means I shut off overdrive, but it strikes me a strange, nonetheless.
2. I got a Service Engine Soon light a few days ago, and I have no idea how bad the news is from that ambiguity.
Can anyone shed light on these things?
The light is just a OD indicator as u said, and the switch does operate the overdrive on/off function, many cars and trucks have this OD dis-able to aid in towing, using OD while towing can overheat the transmission, as far as the check engine light goes it can be caused by over 100 different malfunctions, have the system tested for the trouble code that is stored when the light comes on, Kragen auto and others do this for free.
