First you need an owners manual. If you bought it used you usually don't get one. Have no idea why someone would not pass it on. The owners manual with educate you to some extent,not much, but at least you'll get some answers and know what bulb # to buy when a lamp burns out or a fuse goes.

The MIL Lamps,Service Engine, Etc have been on all vehicles since 1981,some 30 years. Only now, that they come on several times a year, are people questioning them.

You need to purchase an inexpensive code reader or go to a parts store or shop that can check for a code, that may be set as a result of your light coming on.

The code you may get is NOT going to tell you what is wrong with your vehicle or what needs to be replaced. It is a place for a person with knowledge of your cars systems, to start a diagnostic proceedure the find the issues.

You never need to go to a dealer. Where you go to have your vehicles worked on, is your choice.

2001 nissan exterra service engine sone light stays on.


You will need to take it to a mechanic or auto parts store that has a code reader for OBD-II. They will be able to scan the codes and reset them. Many auto parts stores do it for free. If the code is just 'scheduled maintenance' this will fix it, but if there is a problem and you don't correct the problem that has caused the light to come on, it will just come right back. Good Luck!

2001 exterra. Engine missed, service engine light came on and mechanic diagnosed and replaced knock sensor. Ran fine for 25 miles and now misses again.


Could be any number of sensors, MAF is one that comes to mind on missing. Mass Air Flow, make sure your mechanic is reading the codes and not just throwing parts at it OBDII can pinpoint the problems and parts. Computer can take up to 50 miles to reset the parameters, so it may be another sensor.
