Well since the lights are controlled by the OBD (on board diagnostics), you'll have to reset it. You may be able to do this by simply disconnecting the battery for a few hours. However, a lot of newer vehicles have electronically locked radios which require the manual to be able to be re-enabled.

I'd check out the radio before disconnecting the battery.

The only other ways are to physically disconnect the lights in the dash or get someone with an OBD reader to clear the codes.

check spark plugs.
with the engine running (idle)
disconnect one spark plug cable,
see if your engine goes at lower speed or notice engine speed variation.
if it does, the spark plug is OK. it no change, the spark plug is bad.
reconnect the first one then disconnect the next plug.
do this untill at the last spark plug connection.

SOURCE: Where is the alternator located in a 1998 Nissan

It is on the front of the motor on the passenger side. your belt will be attached to it. It is round and should have a wire running to the battery.

Open the hood, now find the belt, the big silver thing with wires and the small pulley is the alternator.

Why truck stop after 2 minute after jumpstart 1998 frontier


It could be that your security system is shutting the car off. However, I would suspect the alternator is not putting out enough current to keep the car running very long. A jump start would give the battery a slight charge, which wears out quickly. Just a guess.

With a volt meter and the engine at idle, check the voltage at the battery.It should always be just over 12 up to 14 volts. At idle with no accessorys on (lights, fan, radio ect.) The voltage should stay just over 12 volts. As you turn on all the accessorys the voltage should rise up to between 12-14 volts.
Also, a new battery needs to be fully charge before use. Most new batterys sit on the shelf and lose charge. My last new battery needed 8 hours of chargeing to be fully charged.
I hope this helps.

Battery is dead 2004 nissan frontier v6


Check the alternator and battery clemmas/wires coming from alternator. It looks like no charge from it coming to battery. If it is second battery already this is the sign. You can do it free of charge at autozone store. But any way as a temporary solution you can buy battery charger ($25 walmart) and charge the battery back if battery is damaged you will see it right away (it wont be charging). After you charge battery back start the engine run it for 30 minutes (if Alternator OK it is enough to charge battery back), stop and start again. If no start alternator is a problem.
Good Luck
