2005 NISSAN ARMADA Service Brakes problems & defects.

NISSAN ARMADA Service Brakes problems : 62.

I Needed To Stop And My Brakes Wouldn’t Work Completely. They Slowed Me Down A Little But Did Not Function Completely. The Pedal Pumped Up And Down Made A Weird Noise And The Brake Light Came On. If I Had Been Traveling At A Faster Speed And Been Following Closer, I Would Have Wrecked. *tt

When I Was Driving Today, The Brake Light Came On And It Was Very Hard To Stop. This Has Happened Several Times In The Last Several Years. It’s Scary Because You Can’t Stop Like Normal. When This Happens, I Pull Over, Turn My Car Off And Then On Again And It Clears It. This Seems To Be An Ongoing Problem From Online Complaints I Have Read And nissan Is Aware Of This. This Is A Huge Safety Concern. Please Do Something About This. This Should Be Without A Question, Recalled. Thank You ! *js

June 20, 2012

While Driving In The Neighborhood Around 20 Mph, I Needed To Brake And Notice An Unusual Noise. This Noise Seems To Be Coming From The Brake Booster. In Addition, It Sounded Like The Brakes Were Grinding. I Notice That The Brake Lamp From The Instrument Cluster Was On. Driving Slowly, I Repeated The Braking And It Would Do The Same. So I Pulled Over To The Side Of The Road And Turn Off The Truck. I Turned The Truck Back On And The Brake Lamp Is Now Gone. I Was Able To Drive Home With No Problem. This Has Occurred To Me At Least 5 Times. I Have Brought It To The Dealership And They Did Not See Any Fault Code. Did A Search On The Web And Many People Have Had The Same Issue. This Should Be A Safety Recall Since It Pertains To The Brake System Of The Vehicle. *tr

While Traveling Down The Road, The Brakelight Comes On. When Pressing The Brake Pedal There Is Not The Same Amount Of Braking Pressure And The Abs Starts Sounding Off, Creating A Lot Of Noise. The Brake Feel Becomes Overly Grabby And Inconsistent. This Has Happened At Least A Dozen Times To Me Personally As Well As My Wife. When The Vehicle Is Shut Off And Then Turned Back On It Seems To Reset And Work As Normal, Until It Does It Again. Please Help! This Had Recently Happened 4 Times In The Last 1 Week. This Has Occurred 2 Years Ago. I Went To The Dealer. They Reprogrammed Something And Has Been Good For A While, But Now It Is Back. I Took Vehicle In To service On July 9th 2012 Is Part Of A Tsb To Have The Computer Flashed Or Updated. Did Not Solve Problem, It Happened Again Today. This Is Becoming A Serious And Life Threatening Issue With Brake Failure On This nissan armada. *tr

My 05 armada Has Problems With The Brake Senor Light Coming On And The Abs System Start Acting Erratic, Vibration Under Dash And Pedal Moving Back And Forth The Brakes Lock Up And Start Making Grinding Sound And Is Hard To Control. When The Car Is Stopped And Restarted All Problems Vanish. Sometimes It Does It When The Car Is Parked Like When I Went To The Store Came Out And Try To Drive It But It Was Locked. When Im Driving The Car And It With Just A Touch To The Pedal The Brakes Would Just Lock Up. Its Unsafe Because There Is No Warning When It Happens. I Called The Dealer And Told The Person In Charge What Was Happening She Said It Might Be The Brake Booster. I Think Its A Computer Hard Ware Or Software Issue Because Once Its Re-started It Goes Back To Normal. Since My Insurance Has Already Expired And The Lady Said It Will Cost Me About 1,000 Dlls Which I Don’t Have Right Know It Will Be Difficult For Me To Fix It Right Away. If It Is The Brake Booster.i Hope In The Meantime Im Lucky Enough To Not Be In A Car Accident Because Of This Problem Thank You. Help. *tr

My Brakes Failed Twice In My 2005 nissan armada W/55k Miles. The First Time, My Brakes Failed To Stop Me At An Intersection, With A Near Miss Collision. The Brake Light Came On & There Was A Horrible Grinding Sound, The Brake Pedal Pulsated & I Had To Take It All The Way To The Floor To Attempt To Stop My Vehicle. I Immediately Pulled Over And Was Towed To My Mechanic. I Was Told There Was Nothing Wrong With My Brakes? The Light No Longer Came On And The Sound Was Gone. Approx 3 Months Later It Happened Again. Driving 35 Mph I Started To Brake And The Exact Same Thing Happened Again. This Time I Drove Home And Parked It, Got Back In The Vehicle To Check It And The Brake Light Was Off & The Sound Was Gone, Brakes Still Felt Different However. The Next Morning, I Did Some Research Online, Saw A Bunch Of People Having The Same Exact Problems. I Called nissan Directly & Opened A Case. Made An Appt At The Dealership, They Knew Exactly What I Was Talking About. After Inspection They Told Me It Was My Brake Booster & It Needed To Be Replaced And Reprogrammed & It Cost $975. I Called nissan To Let Them Know The Cost & Asked For Assistance Since It Was A Defective Part. I Was Informed To Not Pick Up My Vehicle Until I Heard From Them. I Had Rented A Car From The Dealership. nissan Took 5 Days To Respond & Called At 5:30pm To Say Sorry We Decided Not To Help. So Not Only Did I Pay For The Part, Reprogramming & service, I Also Had To Pay For The Rental As Well! They Denied Me For Two Reasons, My Vehicle Was Out Of Warranty & I Did Not Have It serviced At A Dealership. Poor Customer service! Because Of That I Will Never Buy Another nissan Ever Again! And I Love My Car… They Need To Own The Problem! People Are At Risk Because Of Faulty Programming And Parts. They Will Probably Wait For Someone To Die Before They Actually Take Any Action! *js

I Was Coming Up To A Stop Light, Going Roughly 40 Mph, And Started Applying The Brakes, As The Lights Were Changing, And I Felt The Brake Pedal Go “soft” And Drop Nearly To The Floor. I Had The Brake, Abs, And Slip Lights Light Up On My Dash. I Was Able To Bring The armada To A Controlled Stop Before Going Into The Intersection, But To Do So I Had To Depress The Brake Pedal To The Floor And It Was As If There Was A Miniscule Amount Of Pressure Being Applied To The Brakes. Once Stopped I Shifted Into Park, Turned Off The Truck, Waited A Few Moments, And Turned The Truck On Again. The Brake, Abs, And Slip Lights Remained Illuminated And The Brake Pedal Continued To Feel Extremely Soft. I Had To Keep It Full Depressed Against The Floor In Order To Stay Stopped. When The Stop Lights Turned Green, I Pulled Off The Road- Out Of The Way Of Traffic- And Repeated The Procedure Above That I Performed At The Stop Light. The Brake, Abs And Slip Lights Continued To Remain Illuminated. *tr

While Traveling On The Highway (50mph) Red Brake Light Came On Dash And When Applying Pressure To The Brakes, Grinding Noise Immediately Began And Pedal Pressure Was Not Available. Almost Full Pedal Travel To The Floor Board. At The Time, Abs Was Kicking In And Brakes Were Not Working Properly.

Like Many Others, When Applying Brakes, Harsh Grinding Noise And Inability To Brake Easily. The Problem Goes Away When Car Re-started. Has Happened About 25 Times In 3 Years. Seems To Be Computer Issue But Never Happens When At service Center. When My Wife Drove The Car , The First Time It Happened Shook Her Quite A Bit As She Was In High Traffic Area Going About 40 Mph. It Is Unsafe To Turn The Engine Off And On While Driving But This Is Only Way To Get Brakes Operating. *tr

Brake Light Came On During Normal Driving Conditions. When I Pressed The Brake To Stop, The Abs System Kicked On And Braking Distance Was Greatly Reduced. Problem Reset Itself When Vehicle Was Turned Off And Turned Back On. It Has Been An Intermittent Problem Now For 5 Years. Never Have Had It Near A Dealer When It Has Happened So I Have Not Gotten It Fixed. It May Come On Two Or Three Times A Day Then It Might Not Come Back On For 6 Months Then It Will Happen Everyday For A Week And The Stop For Three Months. Something Is Clearly Wrong With Their Braking System And I Don’t Want To Pay Them To Fix Their Mistakes. Here We Are After Owning The Car For 5 Years And Seeing Many Talk Forums Of Other People Have The Same Issue And nissan Has Not Stepped Up To Resolve It. The Brake System Is A Dangerous Component To Have Fail Going Down The Road. *tr

I Have A 2005 armada And I Experienced The Abs/brake/vdc Light Coming On. Took It To The Dealer And They Could Not Find Anything Wrong. They Reset The Computer And Added Fluid To The Master Cylinder. This Happened After Having The Vehicle For 13 Months. Symptoms: Brake Peddle Fell To The Floorboard, Grinding Was Felt And Heard, Dash Brake Light Came On. It Felt Like The Brake Pads Fell Off The Calipers And The Calipers And Rotors Were Rubbing Against Each Other To Stop The Truck, Which Didn’t Happen. I Had Roughly 20% Braking Power, Compared To Normal, When This Occurred. I Have Had Bake Work Done Over And Over Again And The Issue Continue To Come Back And It’s Very Random. My Cousin Whom Has A 2005 nissan armada Also Call Me Today Complaining About The Same Issue. Did More Research And Found This Web Site Http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f0ffea4 Were There Were Over 100 Post Of People Complaining About The Exact Same Issue With There armada. Lucky I Have Not Had An Accident With This Issue, But I Feel As If My Day Is Coming. My Vehicle Is Paid Off, And I Don’t Feel As If This Is A Normal Wear And Tear Issue Of The Vehicle, And I Don’t Want To Have To Purchase Another Vehicle Because nissan Is Refusing To Repair An Safety Issue With One If It Vehicles. Please Help, Resolving This Issue Could Prevent Me Or Someone Else From Having An Accident But More Importantly It Could Help Save Someone’s Life. Please Please Please Look At The Web Site I Provided. I Feel As If The There May Not Be A Lot Of Complaints About This Issue Because People Don’t Know How To Report Issues. *tr

In March 2009 My 2005 nissan armada, Which I Bought New In Late 2004, Started To Have Problems With The Brakes. The Red Warning Lamps Light Up And The Car Lost Most Of Its Braking Power, Like Not Having Any Servo Support. There Were Also Noise And A Soft Pulsing Feeling. We Found That If We Turned Of The Engine And Then Started It Again, Everything Worked Fine. nissan Could Not Find Any Faults With The Car. The Problem Repeated Itself 4-6 Times A Year. nissan Could Still Not Find Any Faults They Could Not Repeat The Fault When They Had The Car In For Tests. In July 2012, On My Annual service, I Asked Again About The Brakes. I Was Then Told That Other Customers Have Had The Same Problem And That They Now Has A Solution For The Problem. I Am Surprised That nissan Has Not Recalled The Failing Brakes. nissan‘s Answer Is Still That There Was No Problem. I Have The Work Papers To Show What Was Needed To Fix The Problem. *tr

The Incident Has Happened Twice Already Once While Driving And Going About 35 Miles Per Hour. The 2nd While Sitting In A Drive Thru. While Slowing Down For The Light, It Felt As The Brakes Gave Out. The Brake Pedal Did Not Have Any Pressure In Them And Gave This Loud Crunching Sound. Also Sounded Like A Spring Moaning. Immediately The Brake Light Came On As If I Had My Emergency Brakes On. I Was In A Panic And Swerved To The Side Of The Road Not To Rear End The Car In Front Of Me. This Continued Until After I Completely Turned Off The Car, Let It Sit Then Turned It Back On. The Light Went Off And The Brakes Worked As Normal. The 2nd Time I Was In A Drive Thru Moving Forward And The Brakes Seem To Give Out. Crunching Sound, Brake Light And Only Went Away When I Turned The armada Completely Off And Then On Again. After Researching The Problem Online It Appears That Many Other People Are Experiencing The Same Problem. This armada, My Wife Drives To Work Every Day Back And Forth. We Can⿿t Afford Another Car And I Fear For Her Safety And The Cars Around Her. Here Is A Link Of Just Some Of The People Having The Same Issue.

We Were Driving The Vehicle On The Highway And All The Sudden The Brake Light Came On, As The Light Came On The Brakes Gave An Anti-lock Type Response. As This Was Happening, We Were Trying To Pull To The Side Of The Road And Slow Down, Because If This Ongoing Reaction Though, Our Brakes Were Not Working To Slow The Vehicle. We Probably Had About 25% Braking Power. This Also Happened To My Wife On The Road As She Was Traveling At 35 Miles And Hour. Exact Same Issue Only Two Days Earlier. From What I’ve Read Online It Is A Defective Delta Stroke Sensor And Brake Booster. And Seems To Be Very Common In The armada, Titan, And Infiniti Qx Vehicles. This Is An Extreme Safety Hazard. Should This Happen At A Stop Light And We Can’t Stop We Would Roll Right Into The Intersection, Creating A Hazard To Us And Our Children. The Only Way To Fix The Issue Is To Turn Of The Car And It Reboots To Saying The Brake Is Off. *tr

Similar To Other Owner Complaints, I Was Driving Our 2005 nissan armada And Attempted To Apply The Brakes. When I Applied The Brakes The Vehicle Did Not Stop And The Brake Pedal Went To The Floor. I Have Been Going Through This For A Year Now Trying To Find The Source Of This. My Brake Pads, Rotors, Etc. Are All In Excellent Condition. I Recently Had The Vdc Control Unit Reprogrammed In Accordance With Ntb06-040 Technical service Bulletin At The Suggestion Of My Mechanic. This Did Not Correct The Condition, And The Same Situation Happened The Next Day. This Is A Very Serious Issue. *tr

My Wife Was Driving 65 Mph On The Interstate And Traffic Came To A Halt. When She Went To Apply Her Brakes The Pedal Went To The Floor And The armada Would Not Stop. She Swerved Into The Grass And It Finally Rolled To A Stop. Pumping The Brakes Did Not Work And There Was A Brake Light That Came On And It Was Making A Terrible Grinding Sound. She Shut The Vehicle Off, Waited For A Few Minutes To Collect Her Thoughts And When She Turned It Back On Everything Was O.k. No Light, No Brake Problems.

My Son Was Driving Home One Night (20 Mph) And Slowed To Make A Turn And The Brake Light Came On, There Was A Clunking Noise, And The Brakes Did Not Work. He Left Me A Note Telling Me Not To Drive The Car In The Morning – “something Seriously Wrong With The Brakes”. When My Husband Went To Check It In The Morning There Was Nothing Wrong With Brakes. We Thought He Was Crazy.two Weeks Later I Was Pulling Into Parking Lot (2mph), The Brake Light Came On, Clunking Noise, Brakes Did Not Work.after Doing Some Research Online And Reading These Complaints And Seeing That Once You Restart The Car The Problem Goes Away, I Went Out To Start The Car And Everything Worked Fine. Now 2 Weeks Later, Backing Out Of The Driveway Last Night, Brake Light Came On, Clunking Noise And Brakes Did Not Work. I Have Contacted The Dealer Who Sold Me The Car And He Was Unaware Of Any Problems. I Called A District Manager At Carmax And He, Too, Was Unaware Of The Problem. Happening 3 Times In 5 Weeks Is Unacceptable. I Can Not Let My Children Drive The Car. I Am Scared To Drive On The Highway. Can’t Believe nissan Won’t Recognize The Problem. I May Get An Attorney. Class Action? *tr

Problem With Car Accelerating Spontaneously When Brake Booster Sensor Fails At Random Times. Initial Problem With Brake Peddle Going Soft And The Anti-lock Braking System Gets Activated When Braking Trying To Do Standard Braking. The Brake Light Turns On, The Peddle Goes To The Floor, Brakes Are Not Normal And Very Touchy And The Car Shudders Viciously To A Stop While. Loud Noise Is Scary While Brakes Not Firing In The Usual Peddle Position And Feel Like Mush. Now In January A New Situation Started Occurring When The Brake Booster Would Fail Is That The armada Would Also Accelerate The Engine On Pressing The Brake. I Went To Stop My armada‘s And The Engine Surged Its Rpms While The Anti-lock Relays Were Firing. I Stood On The Brake Peddle With My Every Muscle In My Body To Try To Get The nissan armada To Stop. I Could Not Shift The Car Into Neutral Because The Shifting Lock Seemed To Engaged. I Ended Up Turning Off The Engine And Was Able To Stop. I Called nissan America To Report This Issue. Also Stopped By The Local nissan Dealership And service Manage Informed Me That The Braking Issue Was Caused By The Delta Sensor In The Brake Booster And Was A Know Issue But That This Was The First Time He Heard About The Spontaneous Acceleration When Applying The Brakes At Low Speed And That He Only Had Heard About The Spontaneous Acceleration When Applying The Brakes At Higher Speeds. He Said This Was Caused Also By The Delta Sensor In The Brake Booster. I Think I Understood Him In Saying That When This Sensor Fails It Allows The Booster To Inject Air Into The Intake That Causes The Car To Accelerate. I Replaced My Brake Booster Yesterday To Find Today That My armada Has The Same Deadly Issue! Please Have nissan Fix This Known Safety Issue! *tr

I Was In A School Zone Picking Up My Daycare Kids. As Soon As I Took Off The Parking Brake And Put The Car In Drive It Showed The Brake Light On. Confused I Checked Everything And Proceeded To Drive Home. As I Reached The Stop Sign With A Crossing Guard Escorting Kids Across I Really Had To Push Down On The Brake And A Loud Crunching Like Metal To Metal And Shaking Occurred. It Scared The Day Lights Out Of Me! I Turned The Corner Pulled Over To The Side Took A Deep Breath. I Took The Streets Home And Drove Very Slow Praying That When I Would Come To A Stop Sign That My Brakes Would Work. I Get To My Other Stop To Pick Up My Child From Her Bus Stop. Coming To The Stop Still Have All The Grinding Noise And Praying It Will Stop. I Turned Off My Car And Waited For The Bus. I Wait For All The Kids To Cross And Completely Clear The Area. I Stared My Car And What I Couldn’t Believe Everything Was Fine. I Came Home Called My Husband He Called The Dealer And I Began To Research. To My Disbelief There Are Hundreds Of Complaints On This Issue Code:c1179 Delta Sensor And Nothing Is Being Done About It. Most People Like Myself Purchase A Large Vehicle Because We Have Multiple People To Drive Around, Like My Kids I Watch Ranging From 1-12yrs. This Floors Me! I Was At A Cross Walk When This Happened With Kids Crossing What If I Couldn’t Stop I Would Of Hit The Kids!!!! What If I Crashed I Had Three Other Kids That I Watched In The Car With Me. It Is Disgusting To Me That Nothing Is Being Done There Is No Recall On This!! To My Fear Something Will Fatally Happen For You Guys To Do Something. Please Fix This Problem Before Something Really Bad Happens!!!. Oh And Not To Mention You Have No Warning When This Occurs And When U Turn Off Your Car Its Like Nothing Ever Happened. Come To Find Out It Resets The Code. I’m Scared To Drive My Car Because Reading Others It Happens Again! Recall!!! *tr

Driving On The Interstate I Started To Hear A Metal On Metal Squealing Noise. My Parking Brake Light Came On And I Pulled Off To The Side Thinking I Had Forgotten To Depress The Brake. However, It Didn’t Work. After Driving Again I Couldn’t Use The Brakes So I Called The Tow And Went To The nissan Dealership I Was Using Before. I Was Told I Needed A Brake Booster Replacement. This Was Almost $1000! I Asked If It Would Fix The Issue. I Was Told Yes And That I Needed To Fix It Before It Caused A Fatality. Of Course This Scared Me And I Told Them To Fix Whatever Was Needed. Twenty-two Hundred Dollars Later And A Few Months And I’m Looking At The Same Issue Happening Again. When I Notified nissan They Have Been Too “busy” And Said To Schedule An Appointment. Um, Excuse Me I Can’t Drive My Car! The Nonchalant Attitude, Coupled With The Subpar Resolution, Has Me Furious. I Don’t Know What To Say Or Think. I Feel Helpless. This Is My Only Vehicle, It’s Completely Paid Off And I Don’t Have Room To Get Another One. I’m With The Other Posts Here That nissan Should Value Our Patronage And Look Into A Fix For This. If That Happens To Be A Replacement Vehicle Then So Be It. But, Something Needs To Be Done Soon Before Someone Gets Hurt Due To Their Negligence. *tr

While Driving, The Abs Brake Light Comes On And When I Try To Brake, The Brakes Make A Grinding/groaning Noise And The Vehicle Does Not Brake Properly. This Has Happened On Several Occasions. It Is Always Sporadic. When The Vehicle Is Shut Off, Something Resets And It Won’t Do It Again. So The nissan Dealership Says They Can’t Fix It Because They Can’t Find Anything Wrong. It Is A Safety Issue Because It Can Happen Anytime And It Affects The Brakes Working. If There Is A Crash In The Future, It Will Be The Fault Of nissan Because I Am Documenting Everything, Including This Safety Complaint. *jb

The Initial Incident In 2006 Occurred While Driving At Approximately 10 Mph. The Brake Light Came On And The Brakes Lost Power Along With Giving A Spring Sound. The Vehicle Was Towed To The Dealership And No Problem Was Found On Two Different Occasions. This Failure To Stop- Like Activity Has Continued Throughout The Years. Once The Vehicle Is Turned Off And Restarted Braking Power Returns To Normal And The Brake Light Goes Off. Initially The Activity Occurred At Low Speeds And Has More Recently Increased In Frequency And Has Occurred At Highway Speeds. It Is A Frightening Experience That Has Occurred As Many Times As Three Times In A Week, Putting Myself And Child In Danger. *jb

I Brought It To The nissan Thousand Oaks Dealer (where I Bought It) And They Told Me They Couldn’t Replicate The Issue And No Code Showed Up. Each Time I Had To Turn Off The Vehicle And Turn It Back On To Reset The Brake Light. nissan Told Me To “bring It In” The Next Time It Happens… Unfortunately, It Is Not Safe To Drive Once This Happens.

When Traveling Back From Washington D.c. In Heavy Traffic I Looked At The Speedometer Of My 2005 nissan armada And Noticed My Brake Light Was Lit Up On My Dash Area. When I Tried To Apply The Brakes I Had Very Minimal Braking Power Approximately 20-30% At Best. This Became A Very Serious And Scary Situation When We Realized We Were Heading Into A Traffic Jam! I Was Able To Ride On The Shoulder And Apply The Brakes Until We Were Able To Stop But By No Means Did I Have The Braking Capability That We Should Have. The Braking System Seems To Fix Itself When You Turn The Ignition Off And Restart The Car However This Doesn’t Fix The Problem. Unfortunately The Vehicle Doesn’t Provide A Code When It Is Restarted. When I Was Finally Able To Drive My Vehicle To A service Station They Provided Me With A Code To Give To My nissan Dealership. After Doing A Little Research I Was Astonished To Find How Many nissan Owners Were Having The Same Issue And How The Dealership Can Not Really Fix The Problem. This Has Happened Multiple Times Since Our 1st Incident Back In 2009 And It Is Extremely Scary. I Have Read Other Peoples Complaints On The Internet Of The Same Issue And nissans Supposed Fixes That End Up Not Working And Costing People Hundreds Of Dollars. I Simply Want To Be Able To Drive My Vehicle Without Fear Of My Brakes Going Out And Putting Myself, Children And Others In A Dangerous Situation. nissan Needs To Come Up With A Solution And Fix The Problem Asap Because If Had I Not Been Able To Pull Off On To The Shoulder Or Off Into A Gas Station When This Happens With No Warning It Could Result In Injury Or Possibly Death. I Am About Ready To Go To The News With This Story Because nissan Is Not Fixing The Problem Nor Is There A Recall For The Issue. This Can Cause Great Injury Or Worse Death If Not Handled Correctly And Soon. *tr

I Don’t Know What The Issue Is But nissan Needs To Resolve It Fast Because The Next Person May Not Be So Lucky. My Truck Is Currently At The Dealership Now Do To The Brake Issue And Of Course They Are Unable To Detect The Problem.

Brake Light Comes On The Dash Board, Push Brakes And It Makes This Grinding Noise And The Brakes Lose Most Of Their Power. After I Put The Car In Park, Turn Off Engine And Turn It Back On Light Goes Off. The First Time It Happened Was In 2010..it Started Happening Again In 2013 A Couple Of Times And Now It Does It All Of The Time In 2014. I Have Two Children And A Lot Of The Time Have Multiple Kids In The Car That Do Not Belong To Me. It Is A Very Scary Thought That The Brakes Will Just Stop Working. I Just Got New Brakes Around 6 Months Ago And Has Been Happening A Lot More Since Than. I Will Take My Car To The Mechanic Again And Need Be File Every Complaint With Whoever I Can To Get This Issue Resolved. I Have Read Many, Many Forums About People Having This Exact Problem..why Hasn’t nissan Recalled This Issue??? Someone Is Going To Die!!!

On 8/12/14 I Was Driving At Approximately 9:15 Pm And I Was Making A Left Turn Onto Clarkson Avenue From Nostrand Avenue And All Of A Sudden My Brake Light Came On And A I Heard A Spring Popping Noise When I Had Put My Foot On The Brakes. I Was Scared And Drove Home Very Slowly Stopping At Several Lights And The Spring Poppiing And Now Grinding Noise Continued Every Time I Put My Foot On The Brakes. I Had To Slowly Press The Brakes Because It Seems As If It Lost Some Power. The Next Morning On 8/13/14 I Called Aaa To Tow Me To nissan. nissan Told Me My Rotors, Brake Pads And Brake Fluid Needed To Be Replaced And That Will Solve The Problem. I Had The Repair They Suggested And Drove Home And Everything Was Fine. Now Today On 8/14/14 The Same Problem Occurred With The Brakes Again And Its 8 P,m, I Will Have To Wait Until Tomorrow To Contact nissan To See If They Can Rectify The Problem.

After Looking At The Online Forum (club armada) I Determined That The Vdc System Needed Reprogramming (according To All Of The Many Other Posts About The Same Incident). I’m Here At The Dealership Now And It Should Cost About $100 To Fix. We’ll See…..

I Experienced A Sudden Loss Of Braking Power As I Was Approaching An Intersection At About 30 Mph And Applying My Brakes. The Brake Pedal Became Soft And Unresponsive And The Pedal Began To Shake And The Abs System Or Brake Booster Could Be Heard Making A Metallic Grinding Noise. I Lost About 80-90% Braking Ability And Was Barely Able To Stop The Car Before It Entered Into A Busy Intersection. This Occurred For 1 1/2 Miles Until I Got Home. Vehicle Was Taken To The Dealership The Next Day, However, The Problem Could Not Be Replicated. They Suggested A $900 Brake Booster Replacement With No Assurance That It Would Solve The Problem. I Looked Through The Original service Records Of The Car And Found That The Previous Owner Had Taken The Vehicle While It Was Still Under Warranty For The Exact Same Issue On 3/5/2008 And A Vdc Software Update Was Performed. That Did Not Solve The Problem. There Appears To Be A Design Defect In The Braking System That Is Causing This To Happen.

We Bought This Car In 2010 And Had Been Very Happy With It. 2-3 Times Over The First 3 Years Of Ownership This Happened, But Always At Very Slow Speed Right After Leaving Our Driveway. Problem Was Corrected By Turning The Car Off And Back On. This Accident Was The First Time It Occurred Some Distance From Home. A Car Stopped Short, Causing The Car Behind To Brake Very Hard. My Wife (with Our 18 Month Old Son In The Car) Attempted To Brake And Couldn’t, Hitting Both Cars. Since The Accident, The Issue Has Occurred With Increasing Frequency (3x In The Last Month Alone) – Our Issue Is Identical To What I’ve Now Found On Numerous Sites – Abs Light Comes On, Very Little Braking Power, Grinding Noise, Vibration In The Pedal. Stop The Car, Turn It Off, Turn It Back On, Problem Gone.

Brake Judder From Front Brakes.*mr. I Have Had Numerous Episodes Like This “bad Abs, I Think, On armada“. Everything Goes Well And Am Traveling At Low Speed Or Pulling Out Of The Parking And Step On The Brakes And Hear A Terrible Grinding Sound Coming From The Brakes In Addition To A Spring Like Sound And A Significant Reduction In Braking Power. This Continues Until I Pull Off The Road And Shut Off The Engine And Then Start It Back Up And The Brakes Work Fine. This Has Happen 8-10 Times Since May 2014. It Did Happen Couple Of Time When I Was Traveling With 20-30 Mph And I Come To Stop, Causing Groaning, Banging Noises And Feel Spongy.this Started Happening In The Same Week Or So After I Had Brake Work Done By Dealer.

As I Was On My Way Back From The Store, I Was Slowing Down To Come To An Intersection To Turn When I Felt This Grinding Feeling In The Brake Pedal. It Made An Awful Noise And I Had No Brakes Per Se. The Emergency Brake Light Was On, However, I Had Not Put It On. I Had To Stop As Best I Could And Turn The Car Off. Only After I Turned The Car Off, Did The Emergency Brake Light Go Off And I Could Continue. I Didn’t Do It Again On The Way Home, But It Has Happened Several Times Since Then. Once, I Had My Granddaughter With Me And It Really Scared Me Because We Were On A Major Highway When Someone Pulled Out In Front Of Me. Luckily I Was A Safe Distance Behind And It Was Rush Hour Or I Might Have Been Actually Going Down The Highway. As It Was, I Was Sitting In Traffic. As Of Now, My “service Engine Soon Light Is On” And I Can’t Get It Inspected.
