Hello, I'm Brandon - Nissan tech.

What does the red light look like? Does it have a red engine logo?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it looks like a 'tap'
it is positioned to the left of the number 6, near temp indicator

Do you mind take a picture of the logo and upload it here?

As long as the light is not the OIL light or low coolant light , you will be OK.

Also make sure the check engine light is not flashing. Flashing typically means the car is misfiring.
