2.The ways to Reset Nissan ABS/ Traction ESP Light via Autel Scanner MaxiCOM MK808.
There is an ABS light, and traction ESP warning light on the Nissan Qashqai+2 J10(2008/8-) dashboard, so I’m gonna use Autel MaxiCOM MK808 Scan Tool to diagnose what it caused.
Connect Autel MK808 with OBD, press
Diagnostics >> Nissan >> Manual selection >> Europe >> Great Britain >> Qashqai+2 >> J10 >> 2008/8- >> Yes >> Diagnosis >> Control unit >> ABS >> Read codes
It tells one fault code: “C1102 – RR LH SENSOR-1”, which means there is a fault with the rear left hand sensor. Actually, I have put a new ABS sensor in.
So let’s press “Erase codes”.
Ignition on and engine off? Yes
DTCs and freeze data will be deleted.
Press “Yes” to continue.
Codes have been successfully erased.
Return to the function menu and tap “Read codes” to verify.
It says “No fault codes detected”.
But the warning lights are all on, that’s characteristic of this vehicle. So I need to turn the engine off then back on.
Alright, all warning light have gone!

Therefore, regeneration is requested in the Digital Diesel Electronics(DDE) control unit.

If the PDF is heavily blocked with soot, it is possible that the regeneration may be blocked again or not enabled after a brief driving.
In this case, it is necessary to regenerate the DPF by driving on a motorway/trunk road for about 30 minutes at a speed as constant as possible.
Then repeat the service function DPF regeneration.
The current regeneration status is shown in the step below.
The statuses below can be observed with this display:
--Regeneration enabled or disabled .
--Regeneration active or inactive.

--Regeneration enabled .
