Customer Question
Check engine light along...

Check engine light along with slip light and the truck will only idle when slip light is on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Stays on.

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

2005 frontier*****

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

In the book it says to put steering wheel all the way in up position and driv over 10 miles ph for awhile but not real clear on cause plus can not go over 10 mph when light is on.

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

I cant think of anything else

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. What codes are you getting ?

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!
