I've purchased a used Nissan Versa 2009, 1.8S 6 Speed Manual Transmission. Beautiful, quiet and responsive car. All was perfect until the cold weather came in at -20..-28 degrees Celsius (-4..-19 F).

Firstly, my trunk would never fully lock. (hatchback)
Secondly, my sprayer nozzles were completely frozen (Front and Back). Thirdly, back from the gym, my car failed to start, cranking well, yet was unable to start.
Lastly, the famous Service Engine Soon light engaged on my dashboard.

I was able to resolve the two first problems with ease, just waiting for the temperature to become warmer.
The third problem scared me, after pushing my V to a safe parking lot, i gave myself the go to try a last time cranking the car. It finally started it but wasn't running completely the way it should. My V, pedal to the floor, didn't exceed 2.5k RPM, the accelerator wasn't responsive. I drove it around the parking lot and decided to drive home on some quiet roads, on which i noticed the Service Engine Soon Light. Once i turned the engine off at home, i decided to give it another try, the accelerator finally responded properly.
At this point, everything is resolved, the car is running very smooth, besides the Engine light bothering me.
I called the dealer and they told me that the light should turn off in a couple of days. It is day 5, it is still on, what should I do? What could it be?

already done



See that pic should be post in the how to section. I know I didn't write it but it's straight from nissan.
This will give you the code for what the issue was. To me sounds like an issue with the MAF or intake tubing after the maf. You can even shut the light off with the procedure. Let us know what you find.

I have scanned my car with the OBD2 and it has detected 8 cases ranging the codes of P2100, P2101. Looks like there might be a problem with the throttle control motor relay. I have erased the codes and the light has not returned. I am going to wait until any action is necessary and notify the dealer. For all those interested here are the links of the codes.

Was the throttle body ever removed? I would make sure the plug is seated well, that all the bolts are snug and there are no air leaks around it.

But if your car is under warranty of any kind I wouldn't touch anything and just bring it back in for them to deal with.
