  2. Rusted brake piping

    Titan General Discussion
    Just wanted to finalize this issue, piping sourced from Autozone, 51" piece, hand bent to close to original shape, but had to bend in a 3" or so loop to take up excess length. One thing I also finally solved was proper brake system bleeding, I used a Motive pressure bleeder in the past but was...

  4. Rusted brake piping

    Titan General Discussion
    My 09 Titan LE is showing its age, today when parking my Jet Skis in the driveway I set the parking brake and noticed fluid leaking, turns out a hard brake line that fits between both rear brakes along the rear axle was leaking. Are these lines available pre bent or do I measure the overall...
  5. ABS sensor wire broken on harness

    Titan General Discussion
    It looked like it corroded from under the covering, when I went to strip it back I had to go further back to get to solid wire.
  6. ABS sensor wire broken on harness

    Titan General Discussion
    Thank you all for the advice. I was able to find a connector at a salvage yard, they had no Titan's but did have an Armarda, different color wires but the connector was exactly the same. Spliced it in with solder and heat shrink with a few dabs of liquid electrical tape to seal it all up...
  7. ABS sensor wire broken on harness

    Titan General Discussion
    2009 Titan LE, Got an ABS trouble light, read the codes, C1102 and C1106, Left rear ABS sensor, picked up a new sensor and found a broken wire on the harness side of the connector. Am I looking at replacing a section of harness, or is a connector available that I can splice in, or do I just...
  8. Can't turn key

    Titan General Discussion
    Just to update this issue, replacing the ignition cylinder and steering lock mechanism solved the issue. Locksmith repinned the new cylinder to the original keys, so no new locks or replacing the valet key in the remote starter was needed. All in $1430. I kept the old parts and can make it...
  9. Can't turn key

    Titan General Discussion
    So, after the dealer couldn't duplicate the issue a few weeks ago, it happened again stranding my wife 30 miles from home. Had it towed to the same dealer and it was still locked up. They determined that the steering lock mechanism and lock cylinder needed to be replaced along with repinning the...
  10. Another Locked Steering Column

    Titan General Discussion
    I had the same issue a few weeks ago, took it to the dealer with both sets of keys and they couldn't get it to lock up. They said the key could be worn just enough for the lock to not release. 09 LE with only 52k miles on it. I sprayed the ignition with a fair amount of WD40 and cycled the more...
  11. Can't turn key

    Titan General Discussion
    09 Titan le I've read all the posts about wiggling the steering wheel or pushing on the shift lever and worn keys, tried everything and the ignition is getting stuck on a regular basis. Sometimes it will be stuck and a half hour later work fine. WTF is causing this? All prior threads on this...
  12. 09 brake issue

    Titan General Discussion
    My 2009 Titan LE has weak brakes. Pads and rotors are about a year old, around 6k miles, new brake hardware and pins are clean and lubricated, fluid flushed and bled 3 times. I have to push the pedal twice to get good firm braking, what am I doing wrong? Truck only has 50k miles on it.

    Titan General Discussion
    My 09 4x4LE is coming to the end of it's 8 yr emissions warranty, (only 50K miles, in service 3/17/10). How do I tell they are cracked for sure or not?
  14. Parking brake grenade

    Titan General Discussion
    I tackled this job over the weekend, I used a 5lb slide hammer and whacked that axle over 100 times with no luck in getting it out, I finally put heat to the backside and it finally popped. Removing the old spacer/bearing/oil seal/tone ring was fairly easy (thank you you tube), the inner race...
