Listed below are questions answered by Experts on Nissan brake repair and other issues.

Why are the red brake lights and the third brake light which is mounted on the rear window of a 1994 Nissan Altima not turning off?

In most cases when all three brake lights remain on, even when your Altima is not operational, it indicates that there is a problem with the brake light switch, which is located at the top of the brake pedal arm. Inspect the electrical connector and the wire harness and check if there are any loose, broken or rubbed through wires that may be touching the metal. It is probably the switch itself or the plunger, which is causing the switch to stick. Replacing the switch may solve the problem.

What could cause the brake and battery lights to come on causing a 2004 Nissan Murano to loose all power?

When the brake and battery lights come on simultaneously it usually indicates that there is a problem with the charging system. If the alternator is not charging the battery the Murano will lose power. Have the charging system checked by a professional and the necessary repairs done.

How to replace the brake light switch on a Nissan?

The brake light switch is locked in place by two 14 mm nuts that are fixed on the switch. First, crack the lower nut loose and remove it with a small 14 mm wrench and then pull the top of the switch off. While installing the new switch turn the top nut to adjust the switch height while laying the brake light into position. Once you feel it has been fixed properly, put the bottom nut on and tighten the brake switch.

What could be causing intermittent brake failure on a 2006 Nissan Xterra?

The most common causes of intermittent brake failure is a problem with the brake master cylinder. The brake master cylinder could have an internal leak from a bad seal or a bad spot on the cylinder chamber.

How to remove the rear brake rotor from an Infiniti FX 35?

The rear brakes are a combination of rear disc brakes with parking brake shoes, which are located behind the rotors. Ensure that the parking brake is off before the rear brake rotor is removed. Remove the plug, which is on the front of the rotor. This will allow access to the parking brake shoe adjuster wheel and re-adjust the shoes until the rotor slides off. After this secure the rotor in place with lug nuts and remove the adjuster hole plug. With a flat-bladed screwdriver rotate the adjuster to retract and loosen the brake shoes.

It is important to have the brakes serviced and checked regularly. Neglecting worn out brake pads and brake rotors can cause serious damage to the vehicle’s braking system and endanger ones safety while driving. Learning how to change Nissan brake pads, replace brake fluid and check cables will ensure the Nissan brakes to perform well. For easy troubleshooting tips and fixes it is highly recommended to seek the guidance and insights of an Expert.
