Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! 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. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

I'm thinking something electirical happened when I changed the brake light switch.. all was fine till I messed with it lol

it sounds like you have a bad master cylinder, is the pedal hard to retract after pushing?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
it seems to get tight after the first couple of pushes to use the brakes

its either the master or you have some debris in the abd unit causing a flow restriction both ways, which would explain the peddle issue, you can rule out the master but disconnecting the line at the master and using a master bleed hoses and see if peddle conditions change, if no change you need a master, if it clears up there is some restriction in the abs unit

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
