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.

SOURCE: why did my VDC, slip, ABS and brake lights come on

Hi there,

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.

The abs sensor may have been damaged when the repair was done.

SOURCE: 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.

How to reset vdc sensor on 2006 nissan pathfinder?


Is VDC switch turned on? If not check brake fluid level

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.

Abs vdc and slip light


I think a trip to the nissan dealer may be needed. The Slip and VDC sytem is tied into the anti-lock brake system. Could be as simple as a vacuum leak or a bad check valve at the brake booster, or the ABS system could be malfunctioning.

VDC light won't go off. This is the first time this has happened. It is really cold out. Would that have an effect.


The first time this happenned to me I wondered as well. It also happenned during a coold snap. Turned out the VDC light on is a warning for the brake system when the pads need to be replaced. Had the brakes done and the light went off. Happenned several times. -2004 G35X

2006 Nissan Pathfinder - VDC and Slip lights come on if you push the brake all the way down (after stoping). Brakes on pathfinders a "spongy" anyway and offer variable resistance depending on...


While it is possible the brake cylinder needs replacing
I would be suspect of what a dealer tells you

If your bold enough to walk into the dealer service
bay from outside and talk to the tech that worked on
it,that would be where to start.

The VDC etc should be diagnosed with the proper
test equipment,scan tool etc.

I would talk to the tech,then go to a local repair
shop and spend some time explaining all the
issues,& make it clear your there only to work on
the Braking Electronics,no other checks or service
of any kind.

My brake, slip and VDC indicators stay on.


Check brake fluid level, add fluid from sealed container if needed.

Also check for leaking rear axle seals. Look for oil on the inside of rear wheels.

Unsual metal noise when braking,brake light comes on and sometimes the VDC and SLIP lights come on.I have to shut off the engine for a few seconds to clear it but it is re-occurring.i have a Nissan armada...


Sounds like it time to do the brake pads. That is the most likeliest to be the problem. If you have done the brakes it is possible that the clips that holds the pad in place might have slipped or the anti squeal mechanism is hitting the this rotor when the brakes are applied. PLEASE CHECK THEM OUT BEFORE DRIVING THIS VEHICLE COULD RESULT IN A DEADLY CRASH!

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.
