Unhappy SLIP LIGHT> ABS LIGHT> Check Engine Light?????

I just bought my first Titan 2 weeks ago. LOVED it so far. Its a 2004 Titan CC 4X4 with 60,000 miles. I have used the four wheel drive very lightly only twice. This morning i started my truck and the SLIP light and ABS are stuck on. I also cannot get my truck into 4 wheel drive. It just blinks at me like im an idiot. The lights weren't on when i turned it off last night in my Garage.Temp outside is about 25 F. I have topped off the brake fluid to the MAX line and still they stay on. I am beginning to get nervous that this is going to get costly. Autozone pulled up some aaEVAP code. CONTROL SYSTEM GROSS LEAK DETECTED. I didnt know if this was the Duals I just put on her causing this? Please HELP!!!!! This is starting to wear on my decision to own my first titan.

Re: SLIP LIGHT> ABS LIGHT> Check Engine Light?????

Don't worry about the evap code. There is a tsb on the evap system and when the valve gets gunked up it will throw a code. Mine does that occasionally and I just clear the code...no need to worry there. That evap issue is not related to the other stuff that is going on.

The ABS and slip light could be an ABS sensor issue. I'm not sure if there would be a code in the ECU for that or not? If it's a bad ABS sensor, that would be a cheap and easy fix. Did you go anywhere offroad and possibly damaged an ABS sensor? They are located just behind the front wheels. Maybe you can crawl under and have a look to see if the wire is cut or anything looks out of place. The sensor is held in place by a little clip, and if it came loose and got damaged, it could be as easy as putting a new sensor and clipping it back into place. Does your truck start and run properly in 2wd?

Re: SLIP LIGHT> ABS LIGHT> Check Engine Light?????

TSB???? Yeah my truck runs great still in 2WD. I have only put my truck in 4WD on the hard road in about 3 inches of snow. there wasnt even any clear spots on the road so I know i didnt hurt it, plus that was a week ago. I didnt do anything Jarring at all. Its just wierd those lights came on after sitting in my garage all night. I appreciate your help. I will crawl under her tonight and see if anything looks out of sorts. I have an appointment with a friend at 4 to plug it in for diagnosis. I still love my truck i am just scared that this is going to cost me a fortune. I mean honestly who wants a 2 WD truck. NOT THIS GUY!!

How is the battery? if it is weak it will cause some problems that you have. Setting overnight your battery could have run down.

Trouble Service Bulletin. Basically it means that Nissan acknowledged that there is a problem with the design and suggested how to fix it, but it is not worth a recall and it is up to you to fix it. Like I said...don't worry about the evap thing. As long as you can still fill your gas tank you are good to go. It will whistle a bit when filling up...but who cares. If it gets really bad, pressure will build in your gas tank and constantly shut off the gas pump because it will think your tank is full when it is not. It is best not to let your tank go down to dead empty otherwise you might have to trickle fuel into the tank until you get back up to 1/8 or something. Worst case, gas could shoot out of the tank like when you blow into a juice box through the straw. This happened to my gf's mom with her murado lol. If that happens you might have to replace it...but it is cheap and easy to fix. If you use the search feature there are tonnes of threads about this issue.

But yeah, look for the ABS sensor wire and see if there is a problem with it. Check this link to BlackBeauty's brake install thread. There are a few good pics here where you can see the ABS sensor and wire clearly

Thumbs up Re: SLIP LIGHT> ABS LIGHT> Check Engine Light?????

Just got it diagnosed with my friends code reader. Right rear speed sensor is reading ZERO at all speed ranges. The other three read proper speed. It came up with code 1101. Is this seriously why my SLIP and ABS light is on the whole time and I cant get in 4WD? I ordered the part. It was 40 bucks. Not a clue what it looks like or how hard it is to change. ANY ONE KNOW? Am I seriously going to be able to get away with such a cheap repair?

My truck is doing the exact same thing. The sensor is really easy to change. If you climb under your truck you cant miss it. I checked all mine out and there isn't any visible damage to any of them. Does one of yours look like it was hit with something?

So anytime your fluid is low or your pads are worn the 4wd wont engage? My pads are all at about 50% right now. I'll have to check my fluid.

Re: SLIP LIGHT> ABS LIGHT> Check Engine Light?????

cricket7 and rynomx785,
Yes the ABS sensor can cause your broblems as it did on my 05. My right rear was damaged when the axle bearing went out but just being dirty can also cause this I think. I'm not at my truck where I can check right now but I think it is a 13mm bolt that holds a clip with the sensor going thru it. As stated earlier, it is easy to change. It is located at the top and back of the part that holds all the brake parts. I have some pictures that might help but don't yet know how to post pictures, but if you want to let me know your email address I can send you the pics.

I know where it is but neither of mine look damaged. I'm gonna get the code read today and figure out which one it is.
