Bad spark plug made my check engine light burn on my 03 Frontier. The kid at the parts store correctly diagnosed #2 plug misfire but refused to turn off the check engine light. New set of NGK Iridium plugs cured the misfire problem and was able to turn off the check engine light with avatar666's very helpful tip.

Just did what avatar666 suggested on a 2012 nissan frontier sv king cab, worked like magic once I got it right ( after a few tries )... have all my power back and my stupid check engine light / system disablment fixed after the dealership screwed me over by spraying fluid film on my brake spring hold down clips ( which I had to wash off with WD40 ), under the guise of a ' brake inspection'... the adage holds true - if you want it to work, learn to mechanic it yourself

BTW, on the newer models, if you disconnect the battery, it doesn't get rid of the problem I corrected with avatar666s method - less than 24 hours is temporary, more than 24 hours lasts about 3 days... beware of connecting the battery without the key in it, as I got a nasty shock when the alarm started to draw juice... stupid computer nonsense...
