Service Engine Soon light on on 1998 Nissan Pathfinder

My service engine soon light is on. The vehicle is running great! I have checked the gas cap but nothing else. It came on after the late time I bought gas.

Sometimes these systems are very sensitive and pick up problems before the affect the way the engine runs. Have the diagnostic trouble codes pulled from the engine computer and post them here and we can get you some better information.

Thank you for the response. I had the vehicle checked and it is the passenger side Ox sensor before the Cat. It doesn't look too difficult to change but I have no idea how to turn off the light once it is fixed.

Hey Pete, Can you post the diagnostic code so I can give you a bit more info on what else might cause this code to set? And if it is the sensor, make sure you use a good quality part, I recommend getting the O2 sensor from Nissan to avoid any future issues.

Hi Bretb, Scan code P0130 check eng 0503 and Scan code P0132 and check eng 0410. Is the Bosch Ox sensor 13224 not a good replacement? Just trying to budget in the OX sensor cost.
