Hi I have a...

Hi I have a 2000 Nissan pathfinder my problem happened quite suddenly.The 4wd light comes on after travelling about 500 m does the exact same thing every time.Also along with that there is some delay in gear changes.And finally its affecting the 4wd.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Just the amber coloured 4wd light only

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pathfinder yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes and have pulled out 2x sensors and tried others that I know are NOT faulty also have tried another trans ECU

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thanks

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

I have had Nissan and a auto electrician both put there scanner on and came up with no fault code BUT the description of the problem is the speed sensor.Does that make any sense to you ?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago

When the 4wd light comes on after travelling about 500 m it stays on solid and the green lights that are normally lit up indicating just the rears wheels are driven disappear. When I start the engine and stay stationary everything looks normal on the dash and stays that way until I get down the road. So everything changes only when moving.

all new could it be a ABS sensor or transmission/transfer case switches ?
Nissan Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

It very well could be, usually when it is though it will code for that, you can monitor the sensors on a scanner to look for differences in the readings
