Problem Description and Possible Solution
The Check Engine Light may illuminate with a stored code P0444. This can be caused by a broken wire at the canister purge volume control solenoid valve. Our technicians tell us if a broken wire is found at the solenoid, a kit is available from Nissan to repair this issue.

Repaired at the dealership for $400. Much cheaper to replace it yourself. It is usually a vent control valve which corrodes internally. The problem manifests as similar to leaving the gas cap loose. In fact, after fueling it would intermittently turn off the (yellow) check engine light.
The part is apparently $80-120 online or in parts stores and instructions can be found online for easy removal and replacement with a screw driver.
The dealership claims it is not part of the Security+Plus extended warranty program, but they claim nothing is when it comes to repairs. We are pushing this to nissan and our lawyer.
