My nissan elgrand highway star 1999 3.2 diesel drives fine

Customer Question

My nissan elgrand highway star 1999 3.2 diesel drives fine but if I put my foot down sharply or sort of double tap the accelerator the orange power light comes on for about 3 seconds. Should I be worried? It's the same light that comes on when you switch the at switch to power the other way being snow.

Hi

If the power light is coming on then you will have a stored malfunction code .

You need to get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool to check for malfunction codes ,from the codes you will then know what the problem is and what to do to rectify this issue .

Its northing really serious as the light is not staying on so its an intermittent issue .

You may just have an issue with one of the engine or transmission sensors .

If you need further assistance with this issue then please let me, get back to me with the reply button and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.

Kind regards Greg
