SOURCE: Front End Noise in 2005 Nissan, Maxima

it would not hurt to check rear tire wear due to misalignment
cupped tires will cause a faulty bearing type noise or humming.

SOURCE: 84 Nissan 720 rear brake lock-up

Was the proportion valve and mater cylinder replaced? The problem most likely is a bad proportion valve it doesn't allow the fluid to return to the master and therefore stays in the system and locks-up the brakes.

SOURCE: My ABS light and emergency

I think it means the Antilock Brake System is disengaged. So, a code has been stored in the abs computer. Standard obd tester cannot check these codes, must visit your dealer or some autoshop with ABS reader.

According with the service manual: During starting the RED brake light should briefly come on and then go off. If the RED light stays on, it indicates a problem in the main braking system, such as a low fluid level, or the parking brake is still on.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

Problems with starting my Nissan juke 1.2t Acenta +, I went to the dealership and purchased two batteries for the keys (including the spare), but still it doesn't start.

If the battery has power and the connections are good.
It could be a brake switch or the smart key controller.
Have somebody see if the brake lights come on when you try to start the car. If not replace brake light switch.

My 2008 nissan altima with push button start only makes a clicking sound and dash lights come on,the brake lights come on when i press the brake,and the battery is good in car and key fob

Whether or not the battery will allow the car to start will depend on the cranking amps it is still producing. Too little CCA and the starter motor will not kick over. Unless you specifically test the CCA the battery is producing you cannot say if it is "good" or not.

Try to jump start the Nissan from another vehicle with the engine idling in that vehicle. If the Nissan starts you know the battery in the Nissan is the problem and if the battery you have is 3 years or more old it can be suspect.

the transmission linkage must not be putting car in neutral. depress the clutch and see if it will roll. that accomplished will rule out brakes dragging. neutral safety switch not satisfied therefore no start.
