Go to auto zone and have the codes read for free.


I disconnected the battery and the light did not reset

On my '95 maxima I have to leave the battery disconnected for ~24 hours to reset the engine lignt.

On my 1987 Maxima there is a button to push to reset the light. It is located underneath the passenger kick panel.

On my 1999 Maxima I had to disconnect the battery for 24 hours


Go to autozone and have them clear it, easiest way, go to yoru local mechanic, he should have a obd scan tool, pay to have him remove it.

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.

After reading the code, fixing the cause, you clear the code with a scan tool.
