You are watching: 2006 nissan murano service engine soon light
Yesterday, I"m driving house from a day of skiing, basking in the bright of a fine day of an excellent light eye for the Northwest and the (grrr) "Service Engine Soon" light come on. The idiot book says it might be a loose gas lid (checked it, it"s plenty tight), the CVT or one emissions problem. Follow to the manual, ns don"t have actually to problem much uneven it starts flashing.I do plan to take it back to the dealer for a reset yet I"m wondering--any ideas for a rapid fix to make this thing go off?

Yeah, straightforward fixes=me too. I"ll try the gas cap (again) and then if the doesn"t do it walk out, to fill up the tank. (It"s fifty percent full now.)And then do like mine son and go to the nearest auto parts for the complimentary code scan. (Great idea, I should listen come him much more often that i do!)

BY,I mental someone posted that when the gas cap is tightened you have to drive a certain distance prior to the irradiate goes out.
If its not the gas cap, I would suspect that since you were driving in snow, moisture might have gained into the EVAP system behind the gas tank - this happened to me when on my Maxima and also I basically eliminated the hoses and blew them out through compressed air (in my situation it was driving with a rainstorm). Light never came back. That it no true the the irradiate is yes if isn"t flashing. Flashing way a misfire, which is a major issue. Yet the irradiate on way some other emissions issue from boy (gas cap, evap system) to major (bad O2 sensor or other engine sensor).
So ns drive it for three days v the light on, to fill up the tank through gas, irradiate goes out after an hour that driving to the ski hill, light come on the following day, tighten increase the fuel cap, light goes out a work later...and has stayed out for end a week. Boo-yah! Love it once I deal with a problem and also have no idea what i did. I must be a genious!

Ayn Rand...
I first started through two clicks and also after the light came on, I"ve to be cranking the gas cap 3 clicks previous "closed." I even wiped the rubber gasket off through a towel in instance there to be something grounding on there. (Before I began driving a desk about all day, I supplied to be a mechanic. In mine business, I encountered o-rings and also vacuum integrity much of my day.) The thought developed to me the if the irradiate keeps coming on, ns may have actually a dud gas cap and I"ll need to take it in for replacement, yet hey--thanks because that validating my troubleshooting!

When ns twist on mine gas cap, I offer it countless clicks, probably at the very least 5 or 6 (however far one rotation the the wrist will allow) - you can not overtighten it. Years ago, Nissan provided a similar kind of clicking lid for the oil cap, however have cheapened it by making use of a regular cap in the current generation that engines.
It come on for me once... I pulled the password via the service manual and also reset the light myself. Its to be fine since.
