Had the same problem.. After replacing 2 ABS rear sensors with no luck the dealer found that the wheel hub was bad. Somehow one of the teeth inside the wheel hub got bent and was sending a faulty signal that most mechanics try to fix by just changing the sensor. The kicker is that if you buy the entire wheel hub it comes with the sensor and costs less than if you buy the senor alone. Also you have to take off the old hub to replace the sensor anyway when your dealing with the rear sensor. Once the hub was changed no problems.

SOURCE: replaced braked pads - now VDC and Slip Lights are on

I would take the car to almost any auto parts store and ask them to check the ODB II computer for codes and to reset the "Check engine light". Get the code that they tell you and it should go a long way to pointing you in the right direction to fixing this problem. It might also be that when you pumped the brakes that you somehow set a code in the computer from the ABS system and now that you have the brakes pumped up and working correctly resetting the Check engine light might fix your problem.

Good luck! Write back with any code you get and I'll see if I can help you figure out what the problem might be.

Hi,
You need to get the VDC system repaired. Either the rear wheels are not working @ all or very inefficiently.

What does Brake light,VDC light and slip lights on . This happened when brake pedal pulsates,but I do have brake pedal.


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.

I drive G35X - 'VDC OFF' and ''SLIP" lights are


VDC OFF light will always be off unless you turn it off (this is for traction control). The slip light should not be on however, unless you are driving in rain/snow and the VDC is activated.

Sometimes when i take off fast a slip light comes on does that mean my transmission is slipping?


I found your answer here:

Why Does the SLIP Light Come on?
The SLIP light represents the vehicle's traction control program. When illumiated it takes over control of throttle and braking based on input from a myriad of sensors. The VDC (traction control) is initiated by wheel slip, yaw and any other factors that make the computer think you're on the verge of loosing control of the vehicle. There have been a lot of complaints about the G35's VDC being too interferring and actually causing harder driving conditions. The VDC can be turned off via a switch to the lower left of the steering wheel (useful if trying to pull out of a snowy spot when wheel spin is necessary, or "spirited" accelerating). Even with the VDC turned off, however, it will still kick in if it detects substantial loss of control. NOTE: if you plan on racing, turn the VDC off. Otherwise it will ****** the throttle when you chirp the wheels from 1st to 2nd gear.
