    Just spent $2,200 on various fixes for my 2001 Nissan Sentra GXE - AC fan, front struts and control arms, crank shaft seal, exhaust break before catalytic converter and was planning on at least 1 trouble-free year. After about 100 miles, brake and battery lights came on. Shutting the car off and restarting made them go out for a while, then they came back on. Did that again and they stayed out for the rest of the trip home - about 15 miles. Any help is appreciated.

    Have a 2001 Sentra GXE and also the brake and battery light are on, I just changed the Alternator, but still have the same problem. Also, after I start the car and remove the negative battery terminal, the car shuts off. Could have I gotten a bad alternator from Autozone? Don't they test them before they sell them. What else coould it be, if its not the alternator.

    2002 1.8L Sentra XE, brake and battery light both came on one morning after starting the car. I had recently had a strut replaced, and a mandatory emmissions test done. Car runs perfect with 125000km on it. I have an OBDII scanner and it does not show any problems with the car. I have been driving it for two days with lights/radio/wipers on and it's showing no signs of a dead battery, no troubles starting it repeatably. I think the battery is original so it likly needs to be changed but why is the brake light coming on???

While I am driving when I am pressing the gas pedal it makes a scraping noise but not all the time. If I hit the brakes it will stop. I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra GXE


Sounds like it might be the low brake pad indicator. A small flap of metal which is made to scrape the rotor when the brake pads reach a certain low level. When brackes are applied the noise typically quiets.
Check for worn front brake pads.

Dome lights and power door locks no working on nissan sentra


Try disconnect negative battery cable for 10 seconds, then reconnect. In my case, after leaving lights on and draining battery, power locks on 2001 Sentra were not working, neither with remote fob or inside car. I have no idea why, but with above procedure, everything now works fine.

Brake and Battery dashboard lights coming on at same time


Check looseness or corrosion on the leads and wiring at the battery terminals. Check for looseness or corrosion on the alternator connectors. With vehicle started and reved to 2000RPM, use a voltmeter to measure voltage and that measurement should be between 13.5-14.8. If you're unable to achieve this voltage have your alternator checked at autozone or advance auto, its free. Hopefully this helps

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.

Power steering fluid


you either have the wrong type of fluid in it or the pump is going out. to change pump take the right side\passenger side tire off and remove the plastic cover and get to work (youll need a pully puller to get the pully off the pump fyi)
