Yesterday I put in some gas and the fuel range monitor stopped working. The fuel gauge shows I have gas but the fuel range isn't registering. Anyone ever have this problem or know of a solution? I took it to the dealership and they said it might have been a sensor issue.

Can’t say that I’m not getting concerned, hood risers going off, fuel mileage not working, and other sensors also needing to be replaced and re programmed.
This is a small group of people and even a smaller group of owners with three issues in a very short space of time.

Nissan took their sweet time getting this car out, multiple quality issues and recalls…you would think they would have ironed it all out by the time we finally got them…but it appears not 🙁

I had the car on when I filled up. I guess that's a no no. So the tech at the dealership said to fill up again with the car off and it should be fine. It's working well now.

oh good so not really an issue. I guess in 200 more miles when I fill up for the first time I will make sure its off haha

The DTE display blanking out, especially when the car was left on during refilling, is totally normal.

The computer saw the level go up, so it has to wait until it stabilizes before it can display a new DTE. This has happened on my older vehicles too.

Range reset is common in other newer cars too. Another to take note is, since you have the Auto, and not sure if electronics monitor the drive modes. On my Gladiator and other FCA vehicles, if you leave it idling in N for too long, e.g. waiting to fuel up, it won't let you immed select D, need to go to P first then back to D. Also happens if you open the door while in N, same procedure. These things are too smart to be really annoying! I just leave it in D with foot on the brake, ugh!

Why put it in N and not P?


Do people leave their car on while filling up? I don't think anyone here in Canada does that.

No, not while filling up, but when in a long wait line for the pump. In older cars, at level ground you can put it in N then set the parking brake, can rest your foot off in the meantime. N is one click away from D. But modern electronics read it differently.

To clarify I didn't have the ignition on. Just the power. My wife was listening to the radio smh.

That sounds more plausible…I was imagining the car running. Next thing we see you on the news with a KABOOM moment 🤣

It’s crazy that listening to the radio would affect the fuel gauges
