I did use the search function but didn’t find the answer.
I have a 2010 Versa with a 1.8 automatic 95k on the clock.
The check engine light came on the other day so I took it to Advance Auto to have it checked and the newbie said that it showed three codes but it couldn’t tell him what they were. When I asked him to reset the light he told me that they couldn’t do that any more.
Do I buy a scanner (if so which one) or is there a way to clear the check engine light without buying one?

The last time I asked Advance to check the CEL code in my car, they were able to at least give me the code, then I googled it to get the details. I believe at that time they were able to reset the code for me. Not sure if this is a new procedure for them. I'd suggest go to another store or competitor.

The Scanguage II is one of the best tools you can have in your box. Reads and clears codes, and also gives you real time readouts for about 15 other engine functions. It is portable, can be used for any model car, gas or diesel, and It is well worth the money.

I thought about going back after the boss went home and see if I could bribe someone to reset the computer but I recently bought a 2000 F150 which are very problematic.
I think it maybe time to buy a scanner.

Thanks for the heads up on the Scangauge II.
In doing some research I found that they also offer a E series Scangauge.
Does anyone know which is the latest model?
Thanks so much,
Jake

For the average user, Scanguage II is the newest and most useful and versatile unit of the bunch.

The other gauges on their web page are designed more for specific uses, such as over the road diesels, rvs etc., or different hookup protocols.

The E series is designed specifically to compute millage and fuel usage, and thats about it.

This same question was just asked here http://www.nissanversaforums.com/interior-forum/24049-ses-light.html

There is a link in that thread to pull codes and clear them without a scanner. Hope this helps
