Question about Nissan Cars & Trucks
I turned on and off the engine several times but every time I turned on the engine, the indicator lamp lit. The engine runs smoothly but I don't want to use it without fully understanding the warning light.My son used my car several months back and got stalled. I brought the car to Nissan service center and several engine sensors were replaced and the engine was totally cleaned up.
The check engine light could indicate many different faults! The only way to be sure is to get the fault codes read! This will indicate where the fault is! If you do not have a code reader then take it to a garage to have this done!

- The engine management unit (ECU) has detected a fault and this is why the malfunction indicator warning light has activated. The most common causes are faulty camshaft or crankshaft sensors, a faulty lambda (oxygen) sensor, catalytic converter, or a faulty coil pack or spark plug.
A fault code should be stored on the ecu's memory which will point your garage in the direction of the fault. The only way to find out what has caused the problem is to take your car to a garage that has the correct diagnostic equipment, and have a diagnostic check carried out, which will reveal what the fault code is. Most garages have this equipment nowadays, even if you don't take it to a Nissan Center, so I would suggest phoning round for a quote unless you have a regular garage. You do not have to go to a main dealer.
Anyway, there are so many reasons why the light could come on, so guessing would not be wise and will almost certainly end up costing you money. Maybe it is some very minor thing, but better check it out.
I hope this answers your question.
