Malfunction Indicator Light Stuck 'ON'

Asked by Feb 20, 2015 at 11:18 AM about the 2014 Nissan Versa

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Wife's 2014 Nissan Versa Note MIL light has been on and won't go off.
Car is handling fine. The manual says this signal has (2) modes. 'Blinking' or 'On' mode.
For 'on' it says to check to make sure the fuel-filler cap is on tight, then keep driving and
the light should go off.

Has anyone else had this problem? Is it a malfunction with the electric system?
Looking for an easy fix besides taking it into the dealer if possible. Any ideas/suggestions
are much appreciated -

Thanks in advance

Drive it to an Autozone and have them read the codes for you. If that light is on, it could be 50 possibilities. Write down the numbers and post them back here.

Thanks - the code is P059F, and they said there were two of them. The couldn't tell me at Autozone what that particular code meant and said that meant I needed to ask the dealership. Any idea what those mean by chance? Thanks

Can't seem to find that one. Here is a site with all of the codes except for that one: http://nissanforum.com/forum/nissan-japan-other-models-32/list- check-engine-codes-nissan-versa-tiida-5916/ I would print them off and keep them for future use. Sometimes the dealers have specialized code readers that only work on certain models. You may have something like that being such a new car.

I had the similar issue actually have ..currently. Auto Zone told me it was something wrong with the computer of the car. I don't know what this means but they said they couldn't give me any more info bc only the dealership would know. But I have no warranty or anything so I'm not sure what my next move will be.

Buenaluna, If you got a code for a loose gas cap like ChicagoNissan did, and if it is tight, what may be going on is a bad charcoal canister. If you have a habit of squeezing more gas into the car past the auto shutoff, it will force gas into your canister which will cause the CEL to illuminate.

from seeing what everybody is saying it looks like dealership put that code to go off automatically after some time to force you to go to their dealership to steal your hard earned money on fake repairs. dealerships cant be trusted, my car is running fine i just reset code.
