That code shows a problem with the Ignition Control Module. Specifically: ICM, 4X Reference Circuit Intermittent, No Pulses.
Sounds like either a bad module, or the computer signal (reference signal or circuit?) may be a problem. If it's in the wiring, likely a shop will have to diagnose it.

SOURCE: service engine soon, TCS off, SLIP

The oil change wouldn't cause this problem. Just in-case, check the engine oil level.

There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Best way to find out what's going on is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means. Most auto-part store will do this for free.

Well there many reason that light will come on,but as small as a gas cap can set it on. you must have your computer scanned to pull up the source of the problem.

Take a look at the distributor cap. remove the cap and look inside for moisture. a wet cap will cause a no start.

When starting my 1997 nissan pathfinder the windshield wipers and radio will not work, but after a few minutes they come on?

There are 2 connecotrs coming off the positive terminal of the battery. They are both big spade connectors and have a tendency to corrode and start creating electrical problems that appear huge. Clean the battery terminals and the 2 spade connectors and that should take care of it. The starting should be better as well as all of the accessories work the way they shoould.
