Customer Question
Hi my engine light...

Hi my engine light has been on and off for the last week and I have scanned for the code

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

Yes it's P0546

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

Nissan d40 2014

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Well so far all I done was reset the battery and the problem went but it has come back

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I took it to the mechanic and said it's not a real issue but he can't fix it until after Christmas
