I have this alert light on a 07 altima that appears randomly. Does anyone know anything about an alert that looks like a clock with the hand at 3. Also has what appears to be some kind of radio waves and says 1.5 h next to it. Please help if anyone can. Nissan has no idea what it is.

What you see as a white clock is the dimmer control for the instrument panel in the car. I thought it was a warning light as well when I first got mine and it's not in the manual, but sure enough that's what it is. No worries!

If it's in the section where the computer displays all it's information, it sounds like the warning that you've been driving too long.
You might have it set at 1 1/2 hours so it'll turn on after you've been driving for 90 minutes.
I have mine set at 3 hours.

I hope this is the warning you're getting as it's pretty simple to fix using the owners manual as a guide to reset it.

Page 2-17 in the manual?

Alert mode - time to rest alert. The manual doesn't say much, but it shouldn't take a lot to turn it off.

Gotta love marketing genius. This is a feature that will tell you that you've been driving too long and it's "time to rest." If you need this, I don't want you on the same road I'm on. If you've got the brains to program it, you've got the brains to pull over when you're too tired.

Here's how to set it to the "leave me alone" mode.

Push the left button till you get this:


Push the right button to highlight "ALERT":


Push the left button to select the ALERT menu
Then push the right button to select "TIME TO REST"



It's probably set to 1.5 hours:


Press the right button till it shows dashes:



Press the left button and you're done. It's now turned off.
