Question about 2004 Nissan Titan
To start with check the Speed Sensor on the front and rear. Usually the issue is with the rear speed sensor which can be replaced easily and will cost you around $25-$40. There is a sensor at the top of the rear differential for the ABS system. When the ABS sensor on the diff goes bad the Speedo no longer will work, the odometer stops recording mileage and both brake and ABS light comes on. You also loose O/D or "Lock-up" in the torque converter. The sensor is inexpensive and can be changed in about 30 mins.
Replace rear differential speed sensor as follows:
a) Remove parking brake cable bracket (1/2" socket)
b) Remove speed sensor bolt (9/16" deep socket)
c) Remove metal speed sensor cover
d) Remove speed sensor from rear differential housing (use channel lock pliers, twist gently back and forth while applying upward pressure. Once the speed sensor has a small gap between it and the rear differential housing, insert a flat-blade screwdriver and gently apply upward pressure while gently twisting speed sensor back and forth.
e) Disconnect speed sensor from speed sensor cable
f) Lubricate new sensor with WD-40, insert into rear differential housing. It will NOT go in all the way by hand, so do NOT force it nor hit it with anything made out of metal.
g) Replace metal speed sensor cover
h) Insert speed sensor bolt and tighten LIGHTLY until a small amount of pressure is felt. Tap speed sensor with rubber hammer until it pops into housing. Finish tightening of speed sensor bolt.
i) Replace brake cable bracket, replace 1/2" nut and tighten
j) Disconnect positive battery cable for 2 minutes, reconnect positive battery cable
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

See if the following information helpful:
1. Keep an eye on the dashboard for the indicators marked "SLIP" and "VDC Off" which will tell you the status of the computerized handling system if handling isn't normal. "SLIP" will blink when VDC is operating. "VDC OFF" means the system is off. Turn the VDC system back on if the Nissan's handling is poor by pressing the "VDC Off" button until the light goes out.
2. Adjust your driving if "SLIP" comes on. "SLIP" means the road conditions may be slippery. The VDC aids in steering and stopping, but be careful, even if VDC is engaged.
3. Remove any aftermarket suspension parts like enhanced shock absorbers if the "VDC Off" light comes on and handling is bad. The VDC system is geared for stock equipment and tires only. Use winter tires or snow chains on snow-covered roads. VDC won't substitute for the correct winter equipment.
4. Don't drive on very inclined corners with high banks and leave the VDC switch on if the handling is poor with VDC on. The system can't operate properly in that environment. Disengage VDC, or avoid those kinds of roads.
