I have a 2005 Nissan Xterra Off Road edition with 45000 miles. I gave a friend a jump start. After the succesful jump start I had warning indicator lights for my VDC, ABS, and SLIP on my dash??? What can have caused this?

    I have a 2006 nissan xterra se with about 46,000 miles.  One day the same three lights came on. (ABS,VDC & SLIP).  They keep coming on everytime we drive it.  I never gave anyone a jumpstart.  I called the dealer and they told me that it could mean that the brake pads need to be changed and they will be happy to look at it for me. I'm sure!  Anyone have any ideas?  I am planning to take it to Autozone where they can hook up the diag tool for fre and maybe tell me more information.

The heavy draw on the charging system may have put it in a low voltage condition which will trigger results like that. Double check your battery connections and you may want to have the battery tested. It might be wearing out. Good luck. Please rate me so I know if I helped.Thanks.

My trip odometer show double the distance traveled.

Check your miles by markers on the road. If the trip is double, it is a chip failure. I wouldn't worry about it until the odometer fails. It can be reset.

2002 Nissan XTerra. Started and went to lunch. Got ready to go would turn over but not start. I'm thinking fuel pump?

Think smaller and work your way up! When was the last time your changed your fuel filter? Do you have spark at the plugs?

Sure you can shot gun it and start replacing parts, and you might be right about the fuel pump if it has acted like fuel deprovation before (fuel pumps usually give some indication before they completly fail), but it is better to spend a little time troubleshooting and replace the right part!

You could pull the fuel line and see if it is pumping or not.

Oil change

I own a 2005 Xterra Off Road and if yours is an "Off Road" model, you have skid plates. Your oil filter is located behind a little door on the bottom of one of the skids. Two screws hold the door on. As for the oil pan, it is most likely just hidden by a skid as well. It will be on the very bottom of the engine.
