Hi there. Anytime you see a check engine light or other warning light illuminate on the dashboard, it is due to a fault being stored in the ECU of your Nissan. The fault code typically indicates that a system or individual component is faulty and requires service. In order to determine what is causing the lights, you’ll need to have a mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a check engine light inspection.
