Customer Question
My Nissan Pathfinder was...

My Nissan Pathfinder was working perfectly fine and then all of a sudden the ABS light went on, along with the hazard light, 4WD light and also my speedometer stopped moving. All at once

Mechanic's Assistant: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?

The brake light is on as well

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Pathfinder?

2012

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

I haven’t tried anything I don’t know much about cars

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

I think that’s all

Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

the problem is that a fault has developed in the abs/traction control/4wd system which has taken all of these functions offline.

this system is what provides speed input to the speedometer, so that has stopped as well.

most likely a wheel speed sensor or the control module (control computer) for the system has failed, but you will need to have the fault logs scanned form the vehicle to verify 100%

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
