In The Nissan I owned That Light lights up every 15, 20 or 30,000 miles depending on the model or year of the Car. There is usually nothng wrong, It is away for the Service Dep. to get you to bring the car in. Most Cars have either a reset button or you have to hook up a diagnostic compter to reset this. They sell a device to reset these for almost any model of car made. Or you might be able to find how to reset t online by doing a search for the model and year of your car.
