- Nissan cars have become more technologically advanced in recent years.
- When this unit detects a problem, the SES (Service Engine Soon) light on the dashboard turns on to indicate that there’s an issue that needs attention.
Open the driver’s side door and get into the drivers seat.
Insert the key into the ignition and turn it a quarter turn so the ignition turns on, but the engine doesn’t start.
Step on the accelerator and quickly release it. Do this 5 times in less than 5 seconds. When you step on the pedal, press it down as far as it can go.
Wait 10 seconds.
Press the accelerator completely down with your foot and hold it there for 10 seconds, or until the SES light blinks on and off.
