Question about 2000 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

"Service Engine Soon" light is ON. It once came on before but went off by itself after the oil change. It came back on again after about 500 miles. I disconnected the battery terminal for cleaning & the service engine light went off and stayed off for about 200 miles. It came back ON again & not going off. What could be wrong? I replaced the spark plugs & coolant. Still no luck

How to reset change oil soon light


Oil Life Monitor Resetting (KD, KE)
Description
The engine oil life monitor will indicate when to change the engine oil and the engine oil filter - usually between 5 000 km (3,000 miles) and 12 500 km (7,500 miles) since the last oil change. Under severe conditions, the CHANGE OIL message may be displayed before 5 000 km (3,000 miles). The vehicle must not be driven more than 12 500 km (7,500 miles) or 12 months without an oil change.
The engine oil life monitor will not detect dust in the oil. If the vehicle is driven in a dusty area, be sure to change the oil every 5 000 km (3,000 miles) or sooner if the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message is displayed.
Reset the oil life monitor when the oil has been changed.
Resetting Procedure
Press the INFORMATION SKIP button on the DIC control panel in order to display the OIL LIFE LEFT message.
Press and hold the RESET NO button until the display shows 100% ENGINE OIL LIFE.

Have the engine checked for vacuum leaks, that will cause a high idle speed. As a 35 year veteran of auto repair I can tell you that engine flushs are a 100% waste of your hard earned money.

How do you reset service light on a 2009 ford focus 1.6 zetec


If you mean "Check engine / Service engine soon" light, you will need an OBD II Scanner / tool. Other ways that sometimes work is if you unhook that battery, try to start the car with no battery (It would drain any remaining power in the cars systems), wait a hour, hook the battery back up and start the car, it might of forgotten the problem. Chances are, the light would be back on within 3-5 miles of driving it again.
If your saying "Service soon" Like an oil change reminder, look in the cars manual... Most cars you hold "Reset" when the message is displayed / or when your looking at "Oil life" (GM's have "Oil Life", idk if ford does.)
Good Luck!

Oil light goes on...had a dry stick 4 1/2 qts put in. no oil on ground. after oil change light went on at 70 miles.. on 15 secs then off for 5 miles then on again 15 secs--- off 4 miles--off 3 miles- off 2...


if it's not going onto the ground, and it's not being burned, check the positive crankcase ventilation and the exhaust gas recirculation valves for oil seepage...also check your air filter, if its got oil on it replace the pcv valve.
