SES or service engine soon light will come on and stay on if the powertrain control module has set and engine diagnostic code. The code can only be read by a or reset with a hand held terminal that hook to the cars computer. Your best bet is to disconect the battery and leave it off for a few minutes. This will clear the code and if it is somthing important the SES light will come back on, indicating a trip the the dealer is warrented. Good luck!

AnswerYou can also use a paperclip and connect the two spots in the top row of the OBD connector. This will make the lights flash after several seconds. It will flash then have a pause and flash again. Say it flashes four times then pasuses and flashes three more times that maskes the code 43. You can then search the net for the codes.

You can clear a service engine soon light in an Infinite G35 by checking to see if the "check engine" light is flashing. If it is isn't, go ahead and clear the service engine light.

Take it to a shop and get the engine serviced. Kinda makes sense if you think about it.
