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.

SOURCE: replace tailgate handle on 1998 nissan frontier

On back of the gate, you can remove screws that are along the edge of the trim and then gently pull back on the trim as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. Once the trim is off, you can access the screws securing the tailgate handle to the tailgate

How to fix a leak on a 2005 Nissan frontier coming from under dashboard on the passenger side, it smells like coolant

Ohmigosh ! If it is coolant, feels slippery and smells like it? it is probably the heater core inside the heater case. It can't be fixed, but has to be replaced.
Look under the hood on the firewall where the two heater hoses go in-any sign there of a hose leaking? The hoses go right into tubes or pipes that are soldered to the heater core, so the hoses show you exactly where the heater core is located under the dash.
If you want to attempt changing the heater core, first buy a repair manual for the Frontier. The chapter on heating and cooling will have the heater core removal and replacement procedure, step by step. Read it and see if you want to do it-on some cars or models, it is easy, there is a cover plate to remove and then slide the core out...BUT on a lot of vehicles, the entire instrument panel has to be removed from the car to get to the heater core, a pretty big job. I have taken apart quite a few dashes and instrument panels ( and even put a couple back together), believe me, it is not for the faint hearted. So many screws to keep track of, so many electrical connections to be pulled apart, so much plastic to break. Not trying to dissuade you, just letting you know it can be a bear ! Your local library might have some repair manuals where you could find the procedure for your Frontier. Or stop in at the Nissan dealer and talk to a mechanic or parts person-they might be able to tell you if you have to remove the dash to get to the heater core.

Try to determine if it is coolant. Has enough leaked out yet that your coolant level in the radiator is low?

2007 nissan frontier has the heater core stop working when truck comes to a stop

There are a couple of possibilities.
1. The heater core may be plugging up. Dirty coolant and lack of coolant services can contribute to this. Backflushing the heater more resolve the issue. If it does have the cooling system flushed to remove the rest of the contaminates from the cooling system.
2. The coolant level may be low. The heater core is usually the highest point in the cooling system. If the coolant where to get too low the heater core would starve for hot coolant at idle.

How remove heater core

Inspect/Replace If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.
