Why is my infiniti fx35 service engine soon light blinking?

It just started blinking. When I stopped the vehicle, I smell a burning smell.

    It turns out there was a misfire on cylinder 5. I don't know what caused the burning smell but it went away quickly. I have been having neighbor trouble and had my car vandalized so I wasn't sure whether something had also been added to the tank. I am still not so sure though I know that engines these days don't respond the same as the old carburetor models did. It still doesn't run as smooth so it probably needs to have the fuel filter replaced?

You need to have access to a code reader to turn the light off.  The best/cheapest way is to go to a local auto parts store and most of them will read the code for you for free and then turn the light off.  I would strongly suggest taking the code to see what might be wrong though.  Good luck.

SOURCE: 2005 infiniti G35 coupe how to reset the service

You cannot reset the light, some people think that by disconnecting the battery you reset the ECM, as that may work on Fords or Chevy, it doesn't work on Infinitis. If the engine light came on because of a loose or missing gas cap, then once the cap is tightened past three clicks, the light will go off on its own. You are going to have to take it to either AutoZone, a dealership or to an independent shop and have the Consult II diagnostic computer retrieve and clear the stored codes. AutoZone does this for free. That's where I suggest you start.

What does the service engine light mean on a 2015 Ford Edge


Service Engine Soon

If the Service Engine Soon indicator light stays lit after you've started the engine, the On Board Diagnostics system (OBD) has detected a malfunction of the vehicle emissions control system. Contact your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
If indicator light is blinking, an engine misfire may be occurring, which could damage your catalytic converter. Drive in a moderate fashion (avoid heavy acceleration and deceleration), and have your vehicle serviced immediately.*
The Service Engine Soon indicator light illuminates when the ignition is first turned on (prior to engine start) in order to test the bulb, as well as indicate whether the vehicle is ready for Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) testing.
Normally, the Service Engine Soon light will stay on until the engine is cranked, then turn itself off if no malfunctions are present. However, if after 15 seconds this light blinks eight times, it means that the vehicle is not ready for I/M testing.Check this link out Gary.

Burning smell


Hehe...Well, unfortunately without smelling it, or looking at the vehicle, there's not much I can do for you here. Check underneath for oil leaks getting onto the hot exhaust, or maybe a plastic bag stuck to exhaust, etc. Good luck.

Transmission is not shifting in 1 or 2nd only. park is good, reverse good, neutral good, motor is not hot, fluid smell and looks good


when your fluid starts to turn dark and you'll smell the fluid,you will know if it's burnt,this happens when the bands gets loose and out of adjustment,as your coming to a stop with your foot off the accelerator pedal and the vehicle starts to slow down the band will help the transmission to slow as well as the vehicle,but if the bands are loose and not tight enough,your clutch's will try to slow the vehicle,when this happens the clutch's will not hold and start to slip,and this will burn the clutch's as well as the fluid,after this keeps happening the clutch's will start to slip when you start to take off from a stop,and will burn the clutch's even more,now your in need of a transmission rebuilt,so when you notice the fluid starting to smell and turn from red to dark red or black,the best thing to do is take it to a transmission shop and have the fluid and filter replaced,and have them adjust the bands,if you try this at home the fluid change should not be a problem but the band adjustment is a different story,if you don't follow step by step and tighten the band's too tight you can break the band's and that will make a for sure thing that you will need a rebuild,so just because the fluid gets burnt doesn't mean you need a rebuild unless you have driven it to long.
