Nissan Altima 2011- e-brake and TCS light stay on

I have a 2011 Nissan Altime with roughly 37k. I got my tires rotated and balanced and all of the sudden the e-brake and TCS light turned on. They stayed on for some time and then the brake light turned off and then the TCS light stayed on. After some time they both turned off. Every so often though they would both turn on. The brake light would stay on only for a few seconds, but the traction control light would stay on for an extended period of time. I am not sure if this has something to do with the brakes being worn down or maybe something that was done when the tires were rotated and balanced. Please help :)

    so esentially this happening immedietly after I got my tires rotated and balanced could be completely coincidence?

    yep but make sure alternator keeping battery charge i have seen bad alternator cause brake light and abs brake light flash if battery volts drop 11.0 volts because alternator failing because abs brake system need 12 volts to work properly.

    if alternator okay bad wheel speed sensor or bad wheel bearing will cause problem you are having.

SOURCE: My 2004 Honda Accord Brake and TCS light stays on.

I will assume you know there is a button on the dash to turn the TCS on and off. Make sure that button has not been pushed. The brake light can be on due to worn brake pads or low fluid level. If the TCS is not turned off then I suggest you take the car to a trusted mechanic or to your local Honda dealer and have it looked at. It takes skill, knowledge, and the proper tools to diagnose this type problem. It can be many things including a sensor, and you can spend lots of money guessing. Spend the money to have it repaired by someone who knows what they are doing. You will be money ahead and have it done right the first time.

SOURCE: 97 Altima dashboard brake light stays on

Check your brake fluid level in the engine compartment. Its located on the rear RH side of the engine compartment, its a white/clear resevoir connecting to a large black circular object. If the fluid is low, fill to proper level, also I would recommend having your brake system checked as there may be a leak. If the fluid is fine and at the proper level, you may have a damaged/broken brake fluid level sensor or damaged/broken Emergency brake switch. Hopefully this helps....please rate thanks!!

SOURCE: 2002 Suburban 1500 - ABS Light On

No doubt the control module is out, and it continue to operate when the ignition key is off due to a circuit fault. You can disable it easily by pulling the 60 amp fuse in the under hood fuse box (it is listed on the panel as ABS). Note that this disables the ABS braking feature and traction control, so be very careful when driving. The part can be purchased on the GM global parts site, about $600-$700 for the module. This will be the second time this has gone out for me and GM is not sympathetic, rather "pathetic", for a part to fail so often.

I bought 20 inch rims for my 2011 altima and ever since my parking break warning light comes on even though the parking break is not applied


When you added larger rims you've also added more weight. you could be setting the electronic censers in to overdrive plus make sure you double check that the tires are not rubbing a wire loom. if the rim offset is wrong you could be causing bearing tilt witch will make park censer to trigger.

1990 volvo 740gl far left corner of dashboard has a yellow light thats on constantly. a diagram of a car with a zigzag road. whats that mean.


Either you have a problem with the TCS (Traction Control System), or the TCS is switched off. Most cars with TCS have a button on the shift or the dash labeled "TCS" or "TCS OFF". Find the button, and press it with the car running in gear. If the light goes out, problem solved.
If you cannot manually disengage TCS (no button), or when you press the TCS button the light flashes, check all your brakes and make sure none are dragging or worn out. Also make sure all your tires are properly inflated and balanced, and none are worn out.
TCS works by controlling your brakes on slippery roads and will dynamically apply the brakes to each wheel in order to prevent a skid, even when your foot is not on the brake pedal. During normal driving, the TCS light is out and will either come on briefly or flash when it is active and preventing your car from going into a skid. When the light is on constantly, the system is disabled- either because it was shut off by the driver pressing the TCS (or TCS OFF) button, or because the system has detected a brake problem and automatically disabled it for safety reasons. Worn or dragging brakes, a tire that is flat or worn, or even a wheel that is badly out of balance will cause the system to disable itself, and a severe wheel alignment problem will also.

Brake lights will not turn off on my 94 Nissan Altima


Your problem should be that the rubber stops that are mounted at the top of your break pedal came out or are worn down too much to press the buttons all the way in.
What they do is push the button that switches off your break lights when the break pedal is released (yes, kind of backwards way to design it, i know). That's why your lights stay on even when your car is off. I had to go to the junkyard to find replacements for mine and they are a ***** to replace.
They are chipped away easily by the break switches when your car shakes badly over a prolonged period of time. Like driving a couple of weeks on a bad front tire.

Dashboard warning brake light stays on continuosly nissan altima


Try this, Since you are applying the hand brake. Manually pull up on the emergency pedal and see if the light goes out. If this does work then you could have one of several problems. but, I am thinking that you might be able to adjust the brake tensioner if this car has one.
