Question about 2009 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

When I start the car an exclamation point comes on and stays on while i'm driving. The car is only 3 months old. I think it has something to do with the brakes, but cannot find my owner's manual.

When did it start doing this, was it after you set the parking brake? If so set the parking break and release it, making sure that the handle or pedal return to their proper possition, also because the car is new you will have to clear the code you can do this yourself, by removing the negative battery terminal and waiting 5 minutes, or you can visit your local napa or autozone, they will use their scan tool to clear the light, they can also verify if the brakes are the cause, and if they are not they can tell you what the cause is (free of charge)

You need to have the dealer look at this, if you fool around with it you can void your warranty. Toyota looks for any legal excuse to void the warranty.

I suggest that you get the instructions manual, you will find what the icon indicates there... you can also visit a local dealership and have a few chat with the mechanic. I'm sure they will not charge you for a very basic question.

The exclamation point in the circle is the Drive Stability Control. comes on whenever the tires are slipping, or if there is a problem with the system. brakes and/or fluids have their own lights.

Normal operation of the charger because its just a tender. A fast charger would run much less in the same situation.

Shut down


The light you're referring to isn't a check engine light, the check engine light merely says "check engine" in orange and is on the lower right hand side of your instrument panel. It is reserved for telling you that something annoying is happening with your engine, but is usually related to a bad sensor reading in your emissions control system.

That other light, (the exclamation point in the red triangle, in the center of the instrument panel,) indicates that something very bad is happening with your engine, it only comes on if continued driving could severely damage the engine. I highly recommend against driving it at all, as doing so will probably just make your problems worse.

What's your temperature gauge reading? If it's going really high, or remaining pegged at the bottom, you may have some kind of coolant system issue, and the motor is shutting down due to an overheat. (Which can then result in a blown head gasket, which I have done...)

I have experienced this twice: once due to a coolant line blowing and overheating my engine, and once due to a major oil leak. (Oil running straight out of the bottom as soon as I put it in. Yikes!) Neither of these problems is something you want to drive your car with until you have discovered the source of, and rectified; the problem. Check all of your fluids and oil, watch all of your gauges, and see if anything out of the ordinary is going on.

If you can't see any obvious reason for this, take it in to the shop, because your car is trying to protect your engine, and getting an estimate is a lot cheaper than replacing your engine.

Good luck,
