First thing that comes to mind is one or more of your "ABS" sensors is bad. They will be located in each of your wheels hub unit. Also check to see if the 'ABS' wires are not broken or un-pluged. Hope this helps.P.Ford

  1. Connect diagnostic read-out tool to SMEC connector, then disconnect the speed sensor connector and ensure there are no pushed out or damaged terminals. Repair damaged terminals, then proceed to Test 38.
  2. If there are no damaged terminals, set diagnostic read-out tool to ``Read Sensor Values,'' and select ``Vehicle Speed.'' Connect a jumper wire at between black/light blue and white/orange wires of speed sensor connector. While reading diagnostic read-out tool, make and break jumper wire. If display reads any speed above 0 mph, replace speed sensor, then proceed to Test 38.
  3. If display reads 0 mph, turn ignition switch Off and disconnect 60-way connector from SMEC. Ensure there are no pushed out or damaged terminals. Repair damaged terminals, then proceed to Test 38. If there are no damaged terminals, proceed to step 4.
  4. With sensor disconnected, connect ohmmeter between 60-way connector terminal No. 67 and ground. If ohmmeter shows continuity, proceed to step 6. If ohmmeter does not show continuity, move meter lead from ground to white/orange wire of speed sensor connector.
  5. If ohmmeter indicates continuity, proceed to step 7. If ohmmeter does not indicate continuity, repair white/orange wire of 60-way connector for open circuit, then proceed to Test 38.
  6. Disconnect bulk head connector to instrument panel. If ohmmeter still indicates continuity, repair white/orange wire for a short to ground in harness, then proceed to Test 38. If ohmmeter does not indicate continuity, repair white/orange wire for a short to ground in instrument cluster area.
  7. Disconnect ohmmeter leads and connect ohmmeter between 60-way connector terminal No. 4 and sensor connector black/light blue wire. If ohmmeter does not indicate continuity, proceed to step 8. If ohmmeter indicates continuity, replace SMEC, then proceed to Test 38.
  8. If ohmmeter did not indicate continuity, repair black/light blue wire of speed sensor harness for an open circuit, then proceed to Test 38.

SOURCE: my 2002 maxima has the abs, slip., and tcs lights

could be a bad abs sensor on one of the wheels, or it just might be covered with alot of dirt, unable to get a good reading. Also if you replaced anything suspension, breaks, or axle related recently, someone might have messed up the wiring

SOURCE: 2004 Nissan Maxima ABS light stays on, what do I

you need to run a scan to see what is wrong. it could be a wheel sensor or the abs pump. This is a realatively new vehicle and i would think something is blocking a wheel sensor from reporting info to the computer. some times things build up around the sensor and block it. or if there has been a recent accident one could be damaged and the shop didn't catch it. these parts really dont fail this quick look for something else. remove the wheels and look for a ring with a lot of teeth on the back side of the assembly. follow an electrical wire it will take you to the sensor which will be next to a ring with many teeth. The sensor recognizes the teeth moving and reports to the computer when they stop moving and that is when the abs starts pulsing the brakes for that wheel. if something gets in the way the sensor sees nothing and the light comes on. if this helps please reply cause that helps me keep answering here and good luck

Check to see if your brake pads and rotors are in good condition. Or if you have replaced the pads yourself and have not reset the wheel sensors this would cause the ABS Antilock Brake System light and the ASC Automatic Stability Control light to stay on as the ASC uses the ABS brakes with computer assistance to control the car

Abs light stays on


Usually means you need to have it serviced asap. This usually signifies the ABS sensor is bad or some other serious problem. While this light is on, your anti-lock brake system will not work, so it can cause serious problems if you need to stop in a hurry.
