My 2005 X-Trail is showing 'service engine soon' alarm in dashborad today, it seem verything is fine to drive. I changed engine oil and air filter a couple of weeks ago. Can't figure out what's wrong with that alarm? Is it still covered by 5 years powertrans wanrranty (only 48,000Km)? Anyone has this kind of problem and can help me? Thanks.

Check your gas cap too. If it is loose it will make the service engine warning light appear.

I had this happen when a gas station attendant put the cap on and never tightened it.

It took a day or two for the light to disappear once the gas cap was screwed on properly.

Thanks for your helps. I checked it, and all the bulbs are fine, but the gas cap seems not very tight. I screwd it tightly again, and waiting for the alarm disappear...
Will let you know. Thanks

If it were me I'd get it looked at pronto. If it's NOT something simple driving around might be doing untold damage.

Edit: And yes, your powertrain warranty is still valid. Your 3 years/60Km bumper to bumper may even be...when did you buy?

had the same problem with '07 explorer... battery off for 2 minutes should solve it if it is the gas cap. if not, take it to the dealer... quick.
