No but thier is an important step to take while doing brakes so that back pressure does not upset or contaminate the ABS.Make sure you clamp the flexible brake hose with a hose line clamp that will not damage hose.Loosen the bleed nipple just enough so that the pressure from the piston being pushed back forces the fluid out.You will notice the color of the fluid is different compared to whats in the master cylinder.Heat destroys whats in and around the brake piston and better to be rid of it than letting it stay in the lines.Once piston is all the way back assemble brake system,undo clamp and bleed as normal,If done right there will be very little air and no brake issues in regard to the ABS.Good luck

How do i change a brake light switch on a 2005 nissan maxima


where your brake pedal mounts to the pedal assembly there is an electric switch on the brake pedal arm that has a tang that is pushed in when you apply the brake. Replace said switch. If this is confusing watch this video; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6MdAVgr-y8

Have 2005 nissan Maxima, the TCS ABS lights on the dash , some sort of motor still runs enven when I turn off the ignition. In order to get it to stop I have to disconnect the battery


May be stuck relay. With battery discon and everything cold, hook up battery but do not start car. Wait a minuet or 2 then feel the top of each relay in fuse box and elsewhere. If on is hot, tap with screwdriver handle to see if it releases and motor stops running. Even if it does not, that relay should not be hot with key off, so needs to be replaced.

2005 Maxima, brake and battery warning lights are on. Serpentine belt looks good and the brake fluid level is ok. What else could it be?


THE ALTERNATER IS DEFECTIVE.
CHANGE THE ALTERNATER.--REMOVE THE SERPENTINE BELT BY PUSHING THE TENSIONER PULLEY WITH A CROW BAR OR BIG SCREWDRIVER. BE CAREFULL TO NOTE THE ROUTING OF THE BELT FIRST, THEN REMOVE THE ALTERNATER BOLTS. INSTALLATION IS THE REVERSE OF THE REMOVAL.

1996 nissan maxima brake and battery lights on .... I have a 1996 Nissan Maxima and the battery and brake lights both came on after bleeding the brakes. What could it be?


Check your brake fluid it is probably low. Top it off and you should be fine. The lights are set so that both come on when low on fluid.

How do i replace the brake light on a 2005 nissan maxima?


Open trunk, and locate the 2 small nuts that are located behind the light housing. Unscrew the nuts, then wiggle the entire housing away from the car. Then you can get at the back of the housing to remove the bulb.

Brake problem


Do you have a leak? If not try bleeding the ones that don't work. If you get no fluid pressure, replace the master cylinder.

2005 nissan maxima sunroof won't open


Had this problem all you have to do is actually open sunroof with tilt button all the way and then close it with tilt button to reset, then it should work with open switch. If you disconnect battery this happens and you have to reset it this way

Brake Light On (in dash)


look inside all wheels and under car for break fluid, you may have a wheel cyl.leaking or a busted break line, or the resavor may have got low enought to trigger the light. if no visable signs of fluid leaks, take it to a local auto parts store and have them hook there scanner up and turn your break light off for you (unless you can disconnect battery to erase the break light i don't know). you may have just triggered the switch for (to low fluid.)
