There is noproblem - that's a "maintenance-minder" light based on miles driven. It's reminding you that some scheduled maintenance based on your mileage is recommended (oil change, brake inspection, tire rotation, etc). If there was a problem the check-engine light would come on.
Just take it to a shop and have somebody look at it. It could just be maintenance that needs to be done. When was the last time the oil was changed? Newer cars are programmed to turn that light on at specific intervals to ensure proper and timely maintenance is performed.
I had the same problem. It was the intake gasket, very common in this model. A $12.00 gasket - Nissan wanted $1000.00 to install it. I got it done for $327.00 - engine light still remains on but car drives just fine.
The light comes on when the car's computer detects that something has an incorrect reading that is sending that incorrect reading from the sensing unit to the computer.
Here's how i would attempt to solve it. To reset an service engine soon light take the positive terminal off of the battery and let it drain all the voltage and currents in your vehicle. Like try turning on your radio and turning your car over while the positive terminal is taken off of the battery terminal.
I would say let it sit for atleast 15 minutes then put it back on and start the car back up. If the light still comes back one then you have a small problem that could be many different little things
Check to see that your gas cap isn't worn out and still keeping a seal so when you take it off you should hear air escaping from it
Could be a filter in your fuel tank.
Could be o2 sensors
The list could go on, but to make sure before you start spending a huge amounts of money go to a shop and get them to plug in a scanner into your car to see what exactly the code is.
