I have often found this problem on several cars after an oil change at one of the "almost drain all your oil and go" places. At 3 times they forgot to reattach one of the hoses after checking the air filter and, after 5-10 miles, that's enough to cause the light to come on. IF this is the problem, just reattach and for me anyway, the light goes away.

You must consider the check engine light as an idiot light. There are a lot of functions that is monitored by the onboard computer system. The most common cause for the light to come on and not reset is the emission systems. If you take the car to an Advance Autos or similar parts store they will use test equipment and find out what the error code means. This is done for you at no cost. Good luck!

1997 Nissan Maxima brake and battery lights on


John, I think I may have already answered this one.Check and clean battery connections and all grounds(loosen and re tighten all ground connections to give good contact), check belt for being loose. Nissan forums say it is a bad alternator.

sometimes jumpstarting can damage the computer.. I would try undoing the positive cable to your battery and leave it off for a minute to let the computer reset. Put it back on and try it again. If that doesnt work, Im afraid you will have to have someone check it out.. If an engine light is coming on, auto zone can check the codes for free..

My dash taillights dont work on my 1997 nissan


Turn on the hazard switch to check if the bulbs light up. If they do, the problem is probably with the headlight switch itself.

No tail lights, tag light, dash board lights in 97 Nissan Maxima


If you don't have a manual, just get a test light, and ground it to your door hinge. At the back of every fuse, you will see part of the metal filament showing through. Touch your test light to each side of the fuse. You should have power to both sides of every fuse (when your key is on). If no voltage on one side, the fuse is burnt.
