How do I reset my service engine soon light in my 2004 Nissan Murano?? Would this require reseting the ECU? I recently had it check out and was told that the air intake was pretty dirty, they cleaned it and now the SES light is on. Was told by mechanic that since it ran so long in that condition we may need to reset a few things to clear the light. I would prefer to do it myself to safe some money. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I had a similar problem. I took it to a near by auto zone and asked them if they could hook up their scanner to the computer and clear the ses light. The light was reset and that fixed the problem. You might want to try this since they do it for free. Hope this helps.

The following directions will help you decode your 2002-2006 Nissan Altima's Service Engine Soon (SES) light and reset it.<br />
<span style="font-weight: bold;">Obtain The Trouble Code</span><br />
<li>Turn the ignition key to the ON position and wait three seconds.</li>
<li>Put the accelerator pedal to the floor and release it five times in less than five seconds.</li>
<li>Wait exactly seven seconds. Put the accelerator pedal to the floor for ten seconds until the SES light flashes.</li>
<li>Release the accelerator pedal and start counting flashes to obtain the four-digit trouble code.<br /></li></ol>
<li>Long flashes (0.6 seconds) indicate the first digit of the code; count
the blinks one through nine and write down the first digit. (Ten blinks
indicates a zero.) </li>
The next three digits blink
faster (0.3 second) and have a 1 second pause between digits.</li>
<li>The ECM code repeats until you turn the ignition key to the OFF
<li>You can look up the trouble codes in the Service Manual.</li>
<li>If you get four blinks of ten, or 0000, the ECM indicates no malfunction.<br /></li></ul>
<br style="font-weight: bold;" /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Clear The Trouble Code</span><br />
Clear the code and the SES light by holding the
accelerator pedal down to the floor for 10 seconds or more while the SES light is
<li>When the pedal is released, the ECM will erase the trouble
Take it to your local auto parts store and have them hook up the code scanner and some of them will tell you they're not allowed to do the reset but I just tell em it's cool...just reset it. Some won't do it at all so just go to a different store, someone is bound to do it.
Or you can buy a OBD scanner of your own and reset it yourself.
you can buy a code reader from an auto parts store that will give you the ability to reset the check engine light, or most parts stores have one that they use on customers cars at no charge. if you ask them to read which code your car is throwing, most of them will let you hit the button to clear the code. they aren't supposed to do it themselves for some reason, but from my experience they will let you.
