Andy, it sounds fairly obvious that a fuse (or more than one fuse) blew, but the question is why. There may be a short or loose wire/connection, or corrosion somewhere, or a fuse may have simply failed on its own. Since it's very easy to check and replace fuses, that's where you need to start your diagnosis. Your owner's manual will show you where the fuses are located, and also has a chart that shows which fuses controls which circuits. If that doesn't resolve the problem and/or it keeps re-occurring, unless you are knowledgeable about automobile electrical systems, you will need to have a professional look at the problem. For the specific issue you described, it does not sound as if you would need to go to a Nissan dealer. The issue is not likely that technical nor Nissan specific. Anyone qualified to repair automobile electrical systems should be able to do the job. If it's not a simple fuse issue, you need to be patient with the person working on your truck... sometimes electrical problems can be very hard to diagnose. It's almost certain that the repair will be very easy, the hard part is finding the exact problem as it could be a multitude of things. Please take the time to re-post once the repair is completed as this helps others on the forum to resolve any similar issues in the future.

I have an 06 pathfinder LE with 7800 miles on it. This happened to me at about 3300 miles. I also have a 01 Sentra SE with 123000 miles and the same thing happend as well. Check the gas cap. Take it off, and screw it back in until you hear a few clicks(about 3 or so). It may or may not go off right then. After about 3 good starts and stops, if the light does not go off, you may actually have to take it in. Only problem, your 1k over in miles for the emmisson warranty.
Hopefully it works for you, it did for me. This information came to me stright from a Nissan dealer shop manager.

Thanks. I have tried that. Didnt help. I thought all the emission control stuff had warranty's that last much longer than the 36K.

Go to Autozone & see what code shows.

If you don't want to spend any money, disconnect the negative terminal on the battery for a few minutes. You should get the code read by an OBDII code reader. (Autozone may read the code for you for free.) Depending on what problem triggered the CEL, it may just come back until you do spend some money to fix the problem properly.
#2140 of 2771 Service Engine Soon : Probably Gas Cap Issue
Oct 03, 2006 (10:03 am)
Okay...2001 LE with 68000 miles on it. The SES light came on yesterday and I immediately checked the gas cap. Turns out the cap wasn't even on...it was still sitting in the holder. The cap had been off for almost 280 miles and just about a full tank. I filled it up, tightened up the cap and had a few stops. The light was still on. I'll check it again tonight but how can I reset it?
