SOURCE: Service engine soon light
in your manual inside your glove box it will tell you how to restet the service due soon message, or the mechanic should do it when he/she services your car.

First off, make sure that the gas cap is tightened beyond three clicks. If it is and has been then there are many things that could be causing the light to come on. But let me start by assuring you that it is not something that requires immediate attention. The sole purpose of the service engine light is to detect malfunctions of emissions related components. If the gas cap isn't tight, the computer system detects an incorrect amount of pressure inside the tank due to vapor leaking out of the filler neck. If the cap is tightened after a period of time the computer detects the right pressure and the light will go off. However, on QX4's the most common cause of the light is oxygen sensors, or cam and crank position sensors, and finally intake valve timing control sensors or solenoids. O2 sensors measure the amount of oxygen in the exhaust gas. Normally I have seen that in damp and wet conditions these sensors are more likely to intermittenly give false readings. That being said, although the SES light is not an emergency situation, it will need to be addressed at some point, as the Engine control module takes the readings from these various sensors and automatically adjusts things like idle control, and air fuel mixture ratio, and eventually will to some point affect the performance of the vehicle. I have seen folks drive 100K miles with a service engine light on, so if you don't want to spend a 200 or so dollars right away, I would take the car to autozone, have the codes retrieved, and report back to this forum, at that point I would be able to advise you a little further. But more than likely you could continue driving the car without any driveablility issues.

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that powertrain control module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
