Question Engine Malfunction Indicator Light - sensor fault

Hello folks,

I'm having a recurrent problem with a faulty MIL sensor on my 2014 Juke Acenta 1.5dci.

The engine MIL first came on at around 18,000 miles (just before the first service). Garage found no fault with the engine - just a faulty MIL sensor. Since then the sensor has been replaced twice under warranty.

Each time it has been replaced, the engine light has come back on again after around 100 miles of driving (it is on again now). It's driving perfectly fine, so it appears to be a sensor problem again. I see elsewhere on the forum that Nissan recalled some Jukes in 2011 due to a MIL sensor fault - but that was 3 years before mine was built, so presumably can't be the same problem?!

Before I get on to the dealer again, has anyone here had similar issues? Is there another spate of faulty sensors doing the rounds, or is it possibly some other fault that the dealer garage isn't picking up? I'm getting fed up of spending every other Friday taking the car in for repairs

This happened to me on the fourth day of using my second hand 2013 1.5 DCi Acenta Premium and I had to have it seen at a Nissan dealership. However, when the MIL came on, I went into stall mode, but you say that´your´s is driving perfectly fine. I read about the 2011 recall and contacted Nissan customer services who informed me that there was no recall for 2013 Jukes. I hope this does not happen to you again as it will then point so something amiss. I´ll let you know if I experience the same again.

My Nissan Juke 2012 is giving me the same problem. Bought it used with about 19,000 km on the clock and had it checked with an independent mechanic and the verdict was on my side and I was given the green light to go ahead and make the purchase. So, I did!

After having driven less than 200 km, the engine warning light pops up and I immediately informed the seller and had it checked but no problem was found with the engine. They fixed the warning light and again it popped up two days later, with a bit of rattle and shake, when hitting the accelerator. This time, a thorough check was done and still no problem was found...until now, hopefully it was just a sensor malfunction!

I adore driving this vehicle but it seems to remind me of my pug (with whom, the Juke has resemblance with) and like my pug, can be annoying at times...he pisses everywhere and the Juke pops up with the engine indication light with a bit of a rattle and shake.

So, far, after the second time at the mechanic's, all seem to bode well.
