After filling my tank, my gas gauge light was still on and the gauge still showed empty. Soon the "service engine soon" light came on. It will not reset. This is a costly repair and is obviously a defect, since there are so many other complaints regarding this same problem.

2007 Nissan Xterra with 57,000 miles. The service engine soon light came on after filling fuel tank. Checked the code at an auto part store. Code is P0463-faulty fuel level sensor. After doing some research found that this is a common fault on Nissan Xterras and frontiers. This failure could cause someone to run out of gas is they do not get the fuel level sensor replaced at a cost of $500 to $600.

Upon filling my 2007 Nissan X-terra (with 42000 miles) I noticed that my fuel gauge was not reading full. Soon after my service engine soon light came on. I called the dealer and was told that this sometimes happens and my needle would work itself back up and after a few trips my ses light would go off. I have since done a little research and come to find out that this is a widespread problem not only with X-terra but with other models as well. There is are multiple sites such as Nissan, X-terra where people all over are have this same issue and asking for help. There is also a service bulletin reference number for this problem (ref #ntb07-069) so obviously someone has acknowledge its existence. I also have picture proof that Nissan has since fixed the problem in the modification of the replacement part changing the original part because the fuel gauge is not working properly my concern is that should I run out of gas in the middle of traffic or at a traffic stop not only could there be an accident but possible if not probable loss of life. Also, in California we are required to smog are vehicles every 2 years and with my ses light on this will be impossible without extremely expensive repairs and as a single parent would leave me financially warranty of course has just expired at 36,000 miles however the problem still exists and existed before the expiration of the warranty. I am also in the midst of writing the national board of Consumer Affairs as well as Nissan customer affairs and my congressman ken calvert.
