Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

1996 Nissan Sentra GXE Battery & Brake Light On.

The car is only at 82,000 miles, the engine check light always comes on due to sensors & such. But as I was driving the other day the brake & battery lights also came on & they are staying on. Is the car okay to drive?

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.

Brake light stays on


the switch for your brake lights is located near your brake pedal,it is usually a spring loaded switch that comes out when the pedal is pushed & the pedal pushes it back in when it is released,this switch may have come loose & is active all the time,you need to make sure that it is pushed hard up against the brake pedal & tighten the adjusting screws to lock it in position,check that your stop lights come on when the brake pedal is pushed in....hope this helps....cheers

1995 Nissan Sentra, The engine light and brake


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.

Nissan Sentra 2001 gxe with code p0420


You will need a new catalytic convertor assembly. Yours is below treshold efficiency in other words its "no good".If you have it replaced, ask the garage/dealer to give you the old one back. Its worth some cash if its full. It doesn't matter thet it failed. They are going after the mesh inside of it and that is worth some $$$$. May not be much , but better than nothing.

Brake and Battery light both just came on today.


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.

Computer "not ready" for emmissions testing


Your computer will re-set and be "ready" after a certain number of restarts and miles, depending upon how much you use the car it should take from a few days to a week. Surprised the tech didn't tell you that!

I cant find the sensors for my engine fans its a nissan sentra gxe 2003


Chances are it is not the coolant temp sensor. The sensor is located right above the alternator, if you have the smaller engine. I wouldn't touch the sensor if you don't have a check engine light on.

Just hit 180,00mi and battery and brake light diming


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.
