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.

You should first of all check the fuse for the abs under the hood. If that is ok, then get ready to fork out a couple of thousand dollars to fix it. It is probably the abs actuator, due to a speed sensor malfunction. Both will need to be replaced. Don't bother calling Nissan, they will not help with this issue.

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.

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.
