It's on for a reason. It means that there is a malfunction in one of the engine control devices. Take the car to a shop and have them extract the codes, or if you want, go and get a repair manual for your car, and do the diagnostics yourself.

A check engine light could mean many things on a 1988 Nissan Sentra. The light could mean anything to a fuel cap not being tight enough to bad spark plugs.

When you turn the ignition on the CHECK ENGINE light will not light up at all.

I don't have an answer for you except that you can go to Autozone and they will check your computer for free if your check engine light is on. I don't know what year model this starts at, but it's worth a try so that you don't have to guess!

There is something not right with the engine.

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

Disconnect the negative battery cable for five minutes. This will reset the light, but if the problem that caused the light to be set is not repaired the light will just come back on.

check the distributor to see if you are getting spark. check for fuel filter clog.

Not positive which one but it sounds like a computer or sensor problem

User Avatar

Take it to Autozone (or your local parts store) and they will connect the scan tool to your truck, then you will press reset.

yes, i have a 1987 Toyota truck and it has one. Can't see why a later model wouldn't

Disconnect the battery for 20 minutes. This should reset the light. Of course if you do not repair the problem that caused the light to come on in the first place, it will just come back on.

Disconnect the battery for 5 minutes. This should reset the light. It will however come right back on unless you have found and repaired the problem that caused the computer to set the light in the first place.

low or no oil pressure check sending unit first and don't drive until light goes away. then check if oil pickup in pan is clogged then oil pump. without oil your engine will fail

YOU CAN'T. It is not adjustable and is NOT to be tampered with. VERY important to leave it alone.You have another problem with the engine sensors if it is idleing to fast are to slow. Is the check engine light on ? If it is you need to have the engine SCANNED with an engine scanner.Check for vacuum leak that will cause it to idle to fast. TPS/ Throttle position sensor may be bad too.

check your trunk, under the spare tire

That's not a check engine light. That's an everything light. Including low oil pressure. ?The oil you put in recently is of an effective lower viscosity than what was previously run? Try thickening the oil.

Sounds like you need a tune up. New spark plugs, air filter, oil change. Check your distributor cap and rotor. Might even need a new MAF sensor for the check engine light. Get a manual and go through these ideas.
