Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

Brake and Battery light both just came on today.

Ok so I have a 1996 Nissan Sentra with a litle over 100,000 miles. I just cleared a couple of IBD codes about 3 weeks ago for a speed sensor. (Working fine for now.) any way. I am driving into work when my brake and battery light both turn on and are flickering. They stay on except for when I accelerate. When I release the gas petal it comes back on. Does anybody have any Idea what this might be?

Check the fluid level in the brake reservoir. The sensor in it may be detecting low fluid. This usually means you need a brake job since the rotors/pad/shoes have worn down.
The battery light may be caused by the alternator not charging. Check the drive belt - it could be loose. You can get the charging system check at Sears and some auto parts stores. Call around.

You could have faulty altenator or short causing the battery to drain. The engine light usually comes on when anything electrical or sensor wise is faulty. Brake light will come on if, low brake fluid, e-brake handle is up.

No it's not you are having a massive failure or a bad battery or a broken alternator belt look to see if you have any belts missing then pull the battery out have it charred and tested at shucks AutoZone or first interstate or sear and see if the battery is ok, if it is then drive it into the same places and have them do a charging system check, it's free except at sears.

Have the battery tested and the alternator tested, the other issue may have a code stored to help point in the right direction, at that many miles things are bound to wear out.
