Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

What year Xterra is this? Also since the Service Engine Soon light has been on, have you have the truck scanned to see what code you have?

Let me know..

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
