Question about 2005 Nissan Xterra
Driving 2005 Xterra UT at highway or freeway speeds up slight incline (engine is fully warm) with and without A/C on, car sometimes changes to a mode where it will not shift down. Other indications are: "Slip" and "VDC Off" lamps come on and if you try to engage the cruise control, the "Active" light blinks but the system does not engage. Problem clears when the engine is turned off and allowed to cool, but I don't know yet if it will clear if turned off only briefly and restarted. Seems to require the engine to be fully warmed to happen and at least highway speeds with some minimal load.
The vdc off can result because the steering input sensor needs to be re calibrated with the nissan consult2 .
the vehicle dynamic control uses input from the abs,vehicle speed sensor,air bag sensor,yaw sensor and steering angle input sensor.
