You can reset the light using an OBDII scanner. If you take the car to autozone and ask them to clear it out for you, they will do this at no charge using an OBDII scanner.

The other option that you have is to disconnect the battery for 5min. Leave it disconnected 5min , then reconnect. The check engine light will be reset.

Keep in mind that these will reset the light, if the fault/problem is still there the light may come back.

SOURCE: 2004 Nissan Frontier Service Engine Soon light came on

P0321 Ignition/Distributor Engine Speed Input Circuit Range/Performance. P1456 Leak Detected In EVAP Control System. Sounds like a vaccuum leak somewhere. I would clear these codes out and see if they come back first. Then if they do I would check to see if you have a vacuum line loose or broken off. If they codes stay off it would be ok to keep driving the truck, but if they came back I would definately get it looked at.

SIncerely,

JC

SOURCE: how do I reset the service engine soon light?

two ways you can do it. First it would be best to find someone with a code reader to find out what the code is ,some times aout parts stores will check the code for you and maybe even clear it for you.otherwise unhook one of your battery cables for a little while and the check engine light will go off untill what ever set it off sets it off again note unhooking the battery will clear your radio stations

My service engine light cut off and my frontier dosent start


If the check engine light is not on when you turn the key on, check the fuses. The fuse for the computer may be blown. If it is you will need to look at the circuit to find the short that blew the fuse.

My nissan frontier crew cab 2001 SERVICE ENGINE SOON light on the dashboard kept flashing. Have serviced the engine, but the light won't stop flashing. Thanks


That means you have a failure somewhere in the system (Powertrain, Chassis, Body, Network). Just because the engine was serviced doesn't mean anything. You need to have the diagnostic codes pulled to determine what is causing the light to be triggered. Then correct the problem and the light will go out. If you just erase the light or code it wont solve anything.

Check engine light is on, codes say throttle body sensor. Replaced sensor, light back on in two days, now truck seems to rev an extra 5000 rpms occasionally when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. 2001 Nissan...


the throttle body butterfly is letting too much air through so its probably stuck or dirty, they should be cleaned every service but noone ever does, if its revving beteen gears then its prob getting stuck in different places so it could probably just use a good clean out

i would take it back. they should cover it. sounds like mass air flow sensor. if it was barelly detailed it water might of seeped into the intake thus sucking small amount of water which then causes sputtering and a little lack of power.

Very rough idle and low rpm and flashing service engine light.


Don't think it's major could be any number of sensors. Any autozone will run a free scan and point you in the right direction.

1998 Nissan Frontier Serice Engine Soon Light Problems


Auto zones computer **** not trying to be rude but Im not to fond of there $99 diag tool. Anyways have you tried the dealer, to see if maybe your light may just be a computer glitch or doubtly a maint. light going on and off. Its to bad its not reading it as a hard code. but you could go buy a repaire book and see if it can tell you how to use the OBD II to make the codes flash when the light is on. just a thought for you.
