I have a 2011 Nissan Maxima and the "service engine soon"

Customer Question
I have a 2011...

I have a 2011 Nissan Maxima and the "service engine soon" light is on. The oil was changed today but the light is still on after stopping the engine and restarting during several trips today.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?

No I don't have.

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll pass this info along to the Nissan Mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. Are you fixing your Maxima yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have not tried anything other than calling the Nissan service dept. and they suggested having a $99 diagnostic done.

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

No. Thanks.

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!
