Customer Question

Ok, here's the challenge! "02 Maxima GLE with 170K. TCS/OFF light comes on and ABS. Speedo quits working. Continuing driving, ABS goes off and "SLIP" comes on, restoring Speedo! Most recently SES came on indicating U1001, P0500, P1212 and P1574.
JA: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?
Customer: I replaced two front wheel speed sensors and just not the VSS which I had replaced two years ago. No resolution.
JA: What year is your Challenge?
Customer: 2002 Maxima GLE. *just now changed VSS.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: did you see the previous messages?
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Most recently, after driving 15 mins, the engine seems to skip or miss, dropping the idle. Trans shifts normally; see no issues there.

The issue seems to be temperature sensitive. When vehicle is cool or not driven for hours, no lights. After 10 mins or so, the lights and issues appear. I brought car to Local Nissan dealer after having a reputable independent try to pull codes and got nothing. Dealer also initially got no codes and gave me the print-out, although the lights were on during both testing. The SES light only most recently came on giving the listed codes.

When I replaced the VSS, I noticed another sensor on trans about 6" more to the inside. What sensor is this? Driver's side, close to wheel is sensor I replaced. Looks similar.
