Warning lights on Sign In

I own a 2005 Nissan Maxima. It has 99,000 miles on it. Have not been having oil changes often. About a week ago check
engine light came on. Yesterday while on my way home on interstate car jerked a couple of times then two lights came on. One said PCS OFF, the other said STIL. Have no idea what that means. I did press the PCS button but it reads off anyway. I have never had any trouble with this vehicle in 9 years. By the way this jerking happened when I was backing into my parking spot as well. Is this fixable at low cost?Frown Thank you

Re: Warning lights on Sign In

You sure it isn't TCS? Stil is stability control system. TCS is traction control system. If those warning lamps are on, you need to take it to a shop that has an enhanced scan tool that can access the ABS control unit to see what codes are stored. Write down the trouble code numbers.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

Some of these Jap cars will put all of those lights on whenever there is any kind of engine code set so I would scan the PCM first.
