You need a scan tool ar CONSULT 2 that Nissan uses for their vehicles, but generic scan tool will work also. Retrieve code and post code. I am going to take a educated guess and tell you that you have a EVAP VERY SMALL LEAK or EVAP SMALL LEAK stored in your ECM/computer. Common codes on this truck, because of the gas tank leaking on top by sending unit. Did you have the Fuel sending unit campaign done?? and does the truck run fine?? 80%of the time is a EVAP system failure. Go to auto zone, they can retrieve code for you for FREE. Post code.

My nissan frontier crew cab 2001 SERVICE ENGINE SOON light on the dashboard kept flashing. Have serviced the engine, but the light won't stop flashing. Thanks


That means you have a failure somewhere in the system (Powertrain, Chassis, Body, Network). Just because the engine was serviced doesn't mean anything. You need to have the diagnostic codes pulled to determine what is causing the light to be triggered. Then correct the problem and the light will go out. If you just erase the light or code it wont solve anything.

You should buy an inexpensive code reader. You can not guess at these issues, and they will be there several times a year,the rest of our life time.

you need to find someone with an old type scan tool,or one that has an adapter for the older cars to read the codes. you can also do this by jumping 2 wires on tha obd connector and count the flashes. the first suggestion is the best. get the code and get back to me and we'll go from there. hope this helps Thanks Ray

Can I get the codes by using my on/off ignition switch or do I have to use a reader


To query and OBD-I-era computer for these codes, put the key in the ignition and turn the key to run (not start), then off, then run, then off, then run (that's 3 runs and 2 offs). Leave the key in the run position.

The check engine light will turn on for a few seconds, then turn off, then (sometimes after 20-30 seconds) start flashing. The flashes are counting out 2-digit trouble codes. Fast flashes count up each digit, with a longer pause between digits. On TJ's with a digital odometer, the code numbers are printed on the odometer in addition to flashing the check engine light. 55 indicates the end of all codes. Once you've got your code list, consult the table below to see what they mean.

OBD-II information is more complex, so the codes for 1998 and newer Jeeps can't be displayed by flashing the check engine light. However, those vehicles which have digital odometers will display the codes on the odometer. I've verified this personally on a 1999 WJ. For those vehicles without digital odometers, or for anybody who wants an English description rather than just a numeric code, an OBD-II code scanner ($100-300) can be plugged in under the dash. OBD-II codes can be looked up online here.


These codes were taken from the '95 XJ/YJ factory service manual.

I hope help you woth this. Good luck (rated this).

1998 Nissan Frontier Serice Engine Soon Light Problems


Auto zones computer **** not trying to be rude but Im not to fond of there $99 diag tool. Anyways have you tried the dealer, to see if maybe your light may just be a computer glitch or doubtly a maint. light going on and off. Its to bad its not reading it as a hard code. but you could go buy a repaire book and see if it can tell you how to use the OBD II to make the codes flash when the light is on. just a thought for you.

Engine light fr ash 10 time


what your check engine light is doing is called the key dance.

The "Key Dance" is a coined term to identify a process of reading MIL fault codes stored by your cars engine computer (PCM). You cycle your ignition key from off to on (not start) 3 times leaving it on. You then count the number of times the Service Engine Soon light flashes. This combination of flashes identifies a fault code. For example, a code 21 would be flash, flash, pause, flash. All codes are 2 digits. Multiple codes are seperated by longer pauses. It should end with a code 55 indicating the process is finished.

Sometimes in newer models, the code is shown on the trip odometer. They would be P codes.

I would pull out my obd code reader and find out what it's telling me. Some parts places (Autozone, O'Reilys, etc) would even have a code reader you could borrow to check for any obd codes.
