Hit a bump on the road and the engine cuts out. No warning, no warning lights. Engine starts normally after that.


Check to see that your battery is secured. See if you can wiggle it. Make sure all battery terminal connections are tight, and all ground wires.

ICV WARNING LIGHTS IS ON IN MY 2010 NISSAN MAXIMA


Are you check the Owners Manual ? This warning actually spells ICY... and it is an automatic indicator to warn of ICY roads and weather conditions.

The word ICY means that temperatures outside are near or below freezing. Its a warning for possible icy conditions on the road. Its a feature that comes with your trip computer along with the temperature gauge.


Hope this helps.

Engine light came on last night. Checked all fluids. all okay. Light went off while driving down the highway and has stayed off. Road conditions when the light came on were icy and wet. Highway conditions...


This may or may not be a problem. The error code will be held in the copmputer, so the next step is to pull the error code(s)... However, if the light stays off, perhaps something hiccuped, and you need not investigate....

ABS warning light on, could it be freezing weather? is it safe to drive


ABS light on likely means that one of the sensors is not sending the right signal to the ABS Brake Module. So, standard braking exists as a consequence. It should be less safe to drive with this condition, but can be driven if you pump your brakes manually on slick roads.

Whatis the rear anti lock? The light has come on.


It only keeps you from locking up your brakes on icy roads. If the roads are slick or you have to slam on your brakes it keeps your brakes from locking and skidding so you don't have an accident.

Have a 2002 silverado and my abs and brake light stays on and the brakes are fine, why?


The warning lights are indicating a malfunction has been detected in either the sensing or actuation portion of the ABS system. Your base brakes will function normally but in the event of an ABS controlled stop on an "icy" or "slippery" stretch of road were the ABS system would take over to prevent a skid, that automatic system will not function.
Have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes to find out which portion of the system has malfunctioned.
Good luck,

You must have ripped the wires off underneath your truck, and you probably don't have brake lights anymore either. Better get somebody to repair it as soon as you can.

Anti-lock brakes and 4wd lights are on


This is likely a wheel sensor problem, which when it fails, the car goes into a limp mode. Allowing you to drive it safely until you can get it repaired.

Severe crunch sound with ABS system, plus ECS light goes on.


Good news,

Your noisy experience with your ABS and ECS is exactly what all of these systems do in icy, snowy, and any environment that causes your tires to lose traction. The ECS light when blinking or illuminated is just informing you that the ECS is being activated to let you know your traction is limited.

I have an Elantra and have driven my GF's '06 Sonata many times. I live in MN and it does the same thing with snow etc. and so has past cars i've owned such as Subaru Legacy, Pontiac Grand Prix, and Toyota Camry.

With ABS it does seem to take quite some distance to stop in icy or snowy conditions. When it's dry it's impossible to beat.
