While driving my 2002 Nissan Maxima SE this morning, it started to slow down on it's own and the ABS light came on. If I tried to step on the gas, the car would pulse forward and stop again. I p

    My car was running the entire time, it just wouldn\'t move when I pressed on the gas, other than to jerk a foot or two at a time. After the 3rd time pulling over, the ABS light went off and it drove again.

    In an attempt to take it to the shop, this occurred again, coasting and pulsing every few feet. Now the speedometer isn't working. It's at the nearest gas station and someone is going to look at it tomorrow. :(

Hello,
ABS is funny like that. Check the level of fluid and fill if necessary. Check to see if parking brake is fully disengaged.

Just replaced valve covers on Nissan Maxima 2002 due to misfire. Now it smokes and burns oil every start? What's should I do .


If is is only smoking when you first start it up. Most likely the valve guide seals, oil is leaking into the cylinders and smoking when you start it up.

If the ABS light is on, it's a good idea to find out what codes are stored.

The OBD-II system allows many codes to be read but a specialist with an ABS BrakeScan tool will be needed in order to find the codes for the ABS system for your vehicle.

I bought a Brakescan tool that works on most Ford, Chrysler, and GM vehicles from 1996 through 2005 but, I don't think it will work with the Nissan Maxima.

So, that's why I would direct you to the dealer for this one.

Why did my VDC, slip, ABS and brake lights come on all at the same time while driving? 2005 maxima se


Hi there,

You should first of all check the fuse for the abs under the hood. If that is ok, then get ready to fork out a couple of thousand dollars to fix it. It is probably the abs actuator, due to a speed sensor malfunction. Both will need to be replaced. Don't bother calling Nissan, they will not help with this issue.
