Hi there:

We’re not quite clear on what might be going on with your 2010 Nissan. However, we wanted to share with you the common definition of the OBD-II error code you posted. In general, the P0090 error code tells us there is a fault found within the fuel pressure regulator control circuit. This error code is triggered when the ECM finds out-of-range performance from the control circuit. Out of range performance causes a Check Engine Light and a failsafe mode. Failsafe mode will remain in effect until normal sensor operation is detected or the issue is fixed. Let us know if you need a professional mechanic to complete a check engine light inspection to determine what’s wrong with your Nissan.
