Hi guys, i was having kind of same problem but my vehicle shuts off while driving with all those signs stays on the dashboard. i search for that and find out with the help of my own scan tool also known as diagnostic tool CanOBD2 with a code P0340 Generric. Camshaft position sensor A circuit (Bank 1 or single sensor) so i went to dealership and showed them the photo of this code on my IPHONE AND they gave me this sensor i also requested them to give me a brief description and diagram details on a print out which they did and let me understand the position of the diagram which i understood and i came home opened the air filter hosing plus air intake hosing/houses and find this sensor on my left. so i opened this sensor within half hour and installed the new sensor and put every thing back on its proper place and started the engine and took about 30 minutes test drive on the highway. The van runs just fine, no shut off of engine, no check engine lights and Emergency BRAKE light, SLIP light, ABS light, and traction control lights are no more. Engine/Van runs just perfect and much smoother now. So what i understood from your issues its just sensor. U better buy diagnostic tool/scanner from canadian tire its number is CanOBD2 Diagnostic Tool of Innova 3100f. The web site of this tool is www.innova.com i hope once u have this diagnostic tool you will know the code and then google this code P0340 Generric. Camshaft position sensor A circuit (Bank 1 or single sensor) and you will realize that i suggest u the right solution of your issue which was also mine issue but not fixed by a sensor whicih cost me from dealership canadian $101/-

Sounds like there is a problem in the base breaking system. it will cause a problem with the ABS which will make errors in the other systems. i would suggest taking it some where to get the error codes that are stored in the ABS system

Check the level of your brake fluid, if it is low it will sometimes put all these warnings lights on together. If you find its low it is most likely due to the fact that you need your brake pads replaced. You can test this by adding a little fluid to the resevoir (just enough to shut off the lights). Do not fill to the top cause when you do replace the pads the fluid will get pushed back into the resevoir and overflow. Hope this helps.

Just finish replacing passenger side axle turned the car on and as soon that it is on drive it makes horrible noise and slip light on. Any advice to fix it.


Check your wheel speed sensor and wires. It sounds like the computer is not getting an input and the traction control and ABS systems are freaking out.

Tcs and slip lights are on


The traction control is basically a set of motion sensors in the wheel hubs and the transmission. If there is a disagreement between a wheel and the transmission (spinning a wheel due to loss of traction) the brake is applied to the wheel so that power is transferred via the differential to the other wheel on the axle. It could be just a dirty or corroded contact that needs a clean up to make a good robust connection.

What does it mean when the SLIP light comes on? While driving, all of a sudden the SLIP light, emergency brake lights and oil light comes on. Then the car dies and the power steering locks up. I then shut...


Our 2005 Nissan Quest does this exact same thing, but our check engine light is on also! We have taken it in and had the code checked and it said one of the cam shaft sensors was bad. We changed the one that was "bad" and had the code reset. If we put it into neutral and turn off the AC and radio and wait a few seconds we can usually restart it.

What does the TCS Off button do?


TCS stands for Traction Control System.
The traction control system works in conjunction with your Antilock Brake System (ABS) and your Engine Control Module (ECM) or Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Unit (ECU) (Note that ECM, ECU, and PCM all mean the computer that controls your engine, depending on make.)

Anyway, the traction control system can apply one or more of the brakes and control engine RPM in the event that a wheel slip has been detected by the traction control system.

Pushing the TCS button on most models will light a lamp in the instrument cluster that usually says "Trac Off" Pressing it a second time will turn this light back off.

When the "Trac Off" light is illuminated, the Traction Control System is disabled and will not work in the event of a wheel slip.

Also note that when the Traction Control System is working and a wheel slip is detected, The Traction Control Module will usually illuminate a light that says "Trac" as it is taking control of your brakes and engine. It can feel really strange when this occurs and some people think that their transmission is slipping or that their engine has a misfire problem.
The chances are that if it occurred on wet, slippery pavement, the Traction Control System may have just saved your life.

If this is happening on dry pavement and normal driving conditions (starting, stopping, or turning), there may be a problem with the system. "False Traction Control" can happen just like a bad wheel sensor causing "False Antilock Mode".

Also check your Owners Manual for more specific information pertaining to your particular vehicle.

I am planning to buy a nissan maxima.but the seller said the ABS.TCS and slip lights are on which is making the tranny to slip a bit. is this true. 1. why would the tranny slip? 2. why also are those...


can be an expensive problem the abs and tcs module under the hood is probably going bad the tranny slipping is probably what is causing the othe lights to come on. the tcs stands for traction control system if it feels a slip in the tranny like on a gravel road or wet road it assists the vehicle into getting better traction.

ABS and traction control really are only for panic stops and if your tires slip on wet surface's and yes each tire has a sensor on it. However if the brake light comes on this has nothing to do with the ABS or traction control lights. It's not a parking brake light. This light tells you, you have a serious brake problem.
