2004 Nissan Altima Wanders at Highway Speeds

I have a 2004 Nissan Altima with 56K miles. At highway speeds it seems to wander. A slight shift in the steering and it is corrected. A few minutes later it will do it again. This is only noticed on straight aways. Car holds true through the turns.

My 2002 Altima SL 2.5 drives and shifts fine for an hour or so. Then it won't shift from first gear.


In spite of what Firestone did it still sounds like you have a defective speed sensor. Other people have also had this problem and it was solved by replacing the speed sensor.

I hope it resolves your problem.

Nissan altima 2005 not shifting or showing speed


The speed sensor is probably disconnected or the wiring was damaged. The CPU needs this input to demand shifts.

Wobbly handling on highways


If you got high miles on this vehicle I'd call it at front upper strut bushing and the struts. If the dealer did a front and rear Alignment ONE WOULD HOPE THAT HE WOULD HAVE FOUND THIS. I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt and say that the tires are probably overinflated. Check tire pressure when vehicle is cold or you drove under a mile.Most Tech overinflat tires during balancing.

Can I put P225/60R16 on my 2006 Nissan Altima the factory spec is for P215/60R16


You should be o.k. Your speedometer will read a little lower than actual speed (about 2 mph) so if your going 60 mph, by speedo, you'll be doing roughly 62 mph. Approx. only 1/2" wider so shouldn't rub when turning sharp. One thing to be very aware of though, as I experienced it personally with exact same change in size, is that the response in the steering wheel seemed a bit quicker. In other words, until your used to them, pay close attention to road more while driving. I found a slight movement in steering wheel on highway, and vehicle wandered off quicker, as well as when in turns, it took less travel of steering wheel than normal. Just takes more concentration for a while.

the vdc off can result because the steering input sensor needs to be re calibrated with the nissan consult2 .
the vehicle dynamic control uses input from the abs,vehicle speed sensor,air bag sensor,yaw sensor and steering angle input sensor.

2004 Nissan Altima Wanders at Highway Speeds


Depending on the tires, it could be a couple of things. I would have the alignment checked. If there isn't enough toe-in, you will get great wear from your tires, but the handling will be loose or will wander.

I had new tires put on our Nissan Maxima and they did a reallignment with not enough toe-in. It became very twitchy at interstate highway speeds. Just a little toe in made a huge difference. I knew what to ask for because I have some racing background. We could go faster with less toe-in, because it reduces the resistance on the rolling tires, but also makes it more sensitive to the road surface, side winds and tire wear.

But there also shouldn't be any slop in the tie rods, etc...
