Hello,

I have a 2015 Nissan Versa with 25,600+ mileage. This morning i noticed that the Malfunction Light Indicator light is on. It is steady, not blinking. The car is driving smoothly.

Should i start to worry? Thanks for your input/advice.

I you are talking about the "Check Engine" light, you could go to almost any nationwide auto parts store and they will read the error code for free. It should give you some idea of whats going on.

Thank You so much. This is my first car and had no idea auto stores would do this.

If you do not do any of your own repairs to a car …..and your car is still under warranty......I would take it to the dealer and have them check it out. Just saves you the step of going to the auto parts store and then going to the dealer to get it fixed.

NO.

It is actually in your best interest to find out what the DTC is outside the dealer and what the possible cause of it is, it can have you well-armed when you go to the dealership and a simple code has them claiming they have to do say $1000 worth of work that may have nothing to do with that code whatsoever.

You STILL need independent confirmation of that code from a separate unconnected source, I say that after one dealer trip over a blown fuse morphed into a 3 week long horror that turned into over $5K in supposed warranty repair that never got done at all. Code reading is free in most places and one should take advantage of that.

It applies to non-warranty work at an independent shop as well. NEVER take only the guy charging the check amount's word alone. So many make that crucial mistake and it can cost you hundreds if not more.

And write the code down, I used to carp at customers who would not do that when I read OBD and they then refused to later remember it incorrectly and then the money losing begins. On the car sites half the time the code has been remembered incorrectly and then the hapless souls spend big money only to find out 2 pages later in the thread they had the wrong code to begin with and all that lost money............I have found the enemy and he is ME.
