Question about 2004 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Do you have instructions on how to disconnect the ABS? I have had brake problems with a 2004 Maxima at least every two years. Just replace rotors and pad a year ago so we know it's not that. I am sick of getting ripped by the dealership. thanx

Removing the ABS fuse will disable the ABS, but it is not recommended. What sort of problem are you having? ABS only acts when the system detects a wheel locking up, if there s a problem with the ABS holding the brakes on, disabling it will not fix the problem. If you intend on removing the ABS system altogether, you need to have this done properly, if you are even allowed to in your area. Here in New Zealand, if the ABS is removed the vehicle has to go through a certifying process to ensure it is still safe. If the brakes are actually sticking on, you would smell a burning smell after driving the vehicle. Have the pedal clearance checked under the dashboard, if it is too far adjusted, once the brake warm up it will hold them on.

    The brakes are making a terrible loud noise and a buzzing sound with it. Checked one ot the sensor's and cleaned it off hoping that would fix the problem, but no luck. There are no lights on and the pads/rotors look fine. The Acuator was just replace a few years ago and was $1500. I noticed from other sites, I am not the only one that has had this problem. What are your thoughts Tim

    Hrmm, hopefully the dealership would have tested the sensors with the vehicle moving to see if one was detecting wheel slip prematurely. If you are wanting to remove the system I would contact the Transport association, or whatever the appropriate department in your area, DMV? to see if it can be done. Did having the actuator replaced fix the problem for a while? Possibly another faulty actuator, which would not be good after 2 years... A good diagnostician should be able to pinpoint the issue. Good luck :)

2004 nissan maxima...can hear the abs pump while driving and sounds like grinding when braking at low speeds. Is this pump issue or sensor? What causes this to happen?


hi from uk the only thing i would be concerned about at this moment is the grinding when brakes applied ? this sounds very much like your brake pads are very low and most likely worne to the point of damage(grinding metal to rotor contact) is the sound you hear also the abs will sense this and due to unbalance of braking to each wheel abs will operate however i would have thought your car may have low pads warning indicator light system fitted but may not ? may i suggest considering age and possible high milage of your car ? if you have not had pads inspected recently? you do so asap b4 you drive any distance especially at speed ?

Abs


Disconnect the positive lead on battery wait about 30 seconds and reconnect. Take it out somewhere where you can floor it and go through the gears a couple times. This will clear error lights and establish a new acceration curve. If the error comes back then start looking for loose connections or alignment problem for abs stuff.

Abs problems on 2004 dodge ram 1500


I've found ABS modules to start being problematic, having had the one on my 2001 Tahoe go bad. I finally got it rebuilt by a Company in Russia, Iowa, with a 5 year warranty, and it solved my problem.

They sell their service on E-Bay, and you can find their website there. Go to their website, and they will give you troubleshooting instructions.

It sure sounds like the problems I read about, and somewhat experienced.

Replacing brakes on 2005 nissan maxima


No but thier is an important step to take while doing brakes so that back pressure does not upset or contaminate the ABS.Make sure you clamp the flexible brake hose with a hose line clamp that will not damage hose.Loosen the bleed nipple just enough so that the pressure from the piston being pushed back forces the fluid out.You will notice the color of the fluid is different compared to whats in the master cylinder.Heat destroys whats in and around the brake piston and better to be rid of it than letting it stay in the lines.Once piston is all the way back assemble brake system,undo clamp and bleed as normal,If done right there will be very little air and no brake issues in regard to the ABS.Good luck
