On a Nissan the brake light comes on with the battery light, to get owner to pay more attention. You need to check the charging system and belt tension. The way the light is coming on the belt may be loose or the alternator is starting to go bad. Once you check your charging system that will tell you what to do next. Just make sure the battery cables are clean and tight. Also be sure belt tension is correct, If these things are not done first the charging system test will give you false readings.

Nissan maxima has check engine light on and is losing acceleration on the road.


If this is a deisel then it's probably some sensor malfunction. It could be one of the sensors in the exhaust system or a simple electrical fault - I have been told it can happen if even just one brake-light bulb is broken

While driving all the dash lights (airbag,seatbelt,every warning light flashed) and the speed odometer and tach jumps back and forth for a second and everything went back to normal. The truck never missed...


I am not positive about my answer but I figured I would give my feedback anyways. It is possible that your alternator might be going out. In my experience, I had a '95 Maxima where, as I was driving, the battery and brake light would come on for a second and then it would turn off. A couple of days later, I needed a jump start. After driving down the road and after the car shuts off on me again (even after the jump), I realized that I needed a new alternator. Sure enough, the alternator solved the problem.

What causes a toyota highlander VCS warning


When your VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) light comes on, it means your car has been forced to take evasive action to avoid a dangerous situation. For example, if you're driving on an icy or wet, slippery road, and take a turn too sharp or accelerate too quickly, the vehicle will automatically reduce acceleration or apply pressure to the brakes to prevent the car from losing control. In this situation the VSC indicator light will light up to alert you that the action was taken, and remind you to slow down - or to be extra careful. Be safe!

1997 Maxima has had 4 alternators in 4 years!


Hey! I have a 97 Maxima SE and it runs great too! I have been through 4 alternators in 12 years....3 in the first 5 and finally one for the last 7. Make sure you have a new- Nissan part specific alternator. And, make sure your battery is not weak nor small for your car size. Hope this helps!

Is there a rear brake pad warning light on Audi 2003 A4


Ther is usually no warning light, but if you hear squeeling they might need to be changed. Another way to check them is if when you step on the brakes to slow down you may feel a little shimmy in the front wheels which mean that the front brakes are doing most of the slowing down and that the rear brakes are worn.

My nissan maxima stalls


Every answer here is wrong. This has been driving people nuts for 15 years. The problem is the engine wiring harness which has a bend going past the right strut tower, Nissan had a service bulletin on this in September of 1999, Google it, it's in pdf.
