Service engine soon light on :(

my service engine light just came on today, is there a way to check the code without going to a nissan dealer?

it does not come on right when you start the truck it takes about 10 seconds after the truck starts to light up

is there a way to reset light?

Try checking to make sure your fuel cap is on properly. If it's not it can trigger the fuel vapor leak sensor.

06' KC 4X4 SE. Calmini 5" SL, 3" BL, Injen Power-Flow Intake, 295/75R16 Hankook Dynapro RTO3 MT's, Bilstein shocks, Magnaflow exhaust, Billet grill.

Hopefully soon to come; PRG UCA & Radflos or SAW's for the front.

here is the update

code is P0463

The PCM has determined that the voltage signal from the fuel level sensor is too high for the current engine operating conditions

Definition-Fuel level sending unit condition
Explanation- poor electrical connection at the fuel level sending unit
Probable causes- Failed fuel level sending unit

lady at Autozone had no idea what i needed to buy to fix the truck, has anyone had this code? does anyone know how to and what i need to fix it?
