Driving home from work and the "Slip" light lights up on the dash. No other lights came on with it, just the slip light by itself. Truck drove normally the whole time. I get home from work, shut it off, and start it up 10 seconds later and it's not lit up anymore. What could cause this? 2006 CC SE 2WD....thanks in advance

A speed sensor going out most likely. It should flash on and off when the system notices any wheel spinning faster than the others. If it stays lit, usually means one of the sensors is not reading properly

clean your ABS sensors in the rear first and then wait to see if it happens again. If it does, then clean the sensors in the front and then wait to see if it happens again. If it does, then there can be two causes...one: failing sensor|bad connection|cut wire and two: axle tone ring off axis or missing teeth.
9 times out of ten, it's one or both of the rear sensors dirty due to the crud generated due to the design of the rear brake system.
If that doesn't find a problem.....then ABS Sensors can be tested in one of two ways..both require a multimeter. One way is to pin the connector and test the ohm read against spec. The other is to pin the connector and with wheel spinning to see what the voltage reads...no volts=bad.

Tone ring is a remove and replace job.

Lots of times this light is lit due to a problem with one of the pressure sensors on the master cylinder.
Listen to Nick Name. He gave you the easy/correct path to diagnosis. Failing those, have a Nissan tech read the code using a Consult scanner.

I have the same issue. Brake fluid is good, I just changed the rear wheel bearing and seal and thought that would have fixed it because of the oil build up from the leak on the sensor.

Is there no way around this?

Its an 04 and I have not had 4x4 more often in the past 1.5 years than I have had it. Not impressed. I would love to dump the whole over rated ABS (Anti Braking System) system in general. I love the truck but but I need the 4x4.

If the sensor is bad, cleaning it up is not going to help, have to replace the sensor. 4wd will not work if the sensors don't work, no way around it.

You don't need to do both tests, one or the other: Ohms...anything above 700 would be good in just about any system on the road. That sensor is just a tiny magnet.

A rotating wheel will produce volts. Higher speed of rotation= higher volts. You just want to see if ANY voltage is produced when you spin the wheel by hand. Any = good. When spinning by hand, the voltages usually vary slightly wheel to wheel and that's OK.
