Service Engine Soon Light, Reset?

I checked out the other threads, and seeing alot of people having issues with the FSU, needing to be replaced.

Is there a way other then getting the code red, to reset the SES light and make sure it is something more then the gas cap?

I was there at the dealerships two weeks ago, states it was pointing to the gas cap, checked it a few times and filled up again, light is still on?

Yes there is.

You turn the key to ON but not start and depress the gas pedal a certain number of times within a time frame then count the flashes.

I'll check the exactlies and get back to ya.

Here you are:

How to read the engine codes without a Nissan CONSULT or scan tool. (Set ECM in Diagnostic Test Mode II)
  1. Confirm that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch ON and wait 3 seconds.
  2. Repeat the following procedure quickly five times within 5 seconds.
    1. Fully depress the accelerator pedal.
    2. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
  3. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 10 seconds until the MIL starts blinking.
  4. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
  5. ECM has entered to Diagnostic Test Mode II (Self-diagnostic results).

IN all the wisdom of Big bucks going into building a Auto.. They come up with Press Gas pedal while Toggling the key in & out.. back & fourth.. eh... WTF!!. Why so complicated?.

Why do they just add a Key pad. Or button with up & down arrows to cycle a simple Menu. Or it's the plan to keep money into service bay's Vs. home fixing?


Shesh. All that pressing of the Gas pedal.. hmmm.. Sounds like a toyota Sticking gas pedal soon... :-)

Scan tool will be simpler.

Dunno.. just had to wonder... on that one

Chug if it was easy you might want to fix it yourself, and not bring it to a Nissan dealer.

Any autozone or advance auto parts will clear a check engine light for free. Just go in and ask.

Remove negative cable.
Touch it to positive terminal -- with positive cable still attached.
Hold for a few seconds, I usually do 10.

This will drain the capacitors in the truck and reset the light(s).

OK ended up at the dealership. Evap sensor (4056?, all points were thinking gas cap). Had to replace the sensor. They also did the recall fuel work as well.

Got it back, light came on again.......had to update the updated sensor? It is fixed now, just a lil bizarre
