    • I was a Nissan Dealer. I suggest you talk to,who is running the store if a customer told me that it would instantly be fixed. Service manager won’t be the one to go to as it affects his paycheck but customer satisfaction affects all employees because it is clearly the customer that signs their paycheck.

  1. I have a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder, that procedure did not work for me, what else I can do? I was to replacing the radio and disconnected all the harness behind it, when I connected them back this light showed up and I do not want to go to the dealer. Please let me know I really will appreciate it.
