NISSAN ARMADA Unknown Or Other problems : 5.
Previously Reported Under Complaint #odi Id Number : 10339985. A Summary Of The Problem:the Issue/problem: The Brake Light Comes On. When Brakes Are Used, There Is Decreased Braking Power. The Brakes Make A Crunching, Springy Noise With The Pedal Being Extremely Soft Until It Gets Closer To The Floor And Begins To Give Braking Power. When Ignition Is Turned Off, The Problem Resolves At Least Temporarily. When The Engine Has Turned Off, I Have Had The Problem Reoccur As Soon As 5 Minutes And As Long As 31 Months. I Made A Video Of One Of My Instances @ Http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmtpofdbjr8 I First Experienced The Braking Problem Back In 3/06 With ~12,000 Miles On The Vehicle. The Dealer Was Not Able To Duplicate The Issue, But It Had Happened To Me 3-4 Times Prior To Getting It To The Dealer. During The Visit, They Performed The Judder Brake Bulletin Service. The Description Of The Judder Brake Bulletin Did Not Seem To Fit My Problem, But The Car No Longer Had The Issue. Then The Issue Recurred At ~46,000 Miles In 10/08. Again The Brakes Did Not Have Full Power For 3-5 Times Prior To Getting It To The Dealer. I Was Able To Demonstrate The Problem To My Local Mechanic, But When He Shut Down The Engine, The Problem Resolved. I Returned The Car To The Dealer. The Computer Did Not Have Any Repair Codes Stored, But They Performed Tsb 06-040, A Computer Software Update. The Car Was Fine Until 6/25/10 When The Problem Recurred. It Occurred Three Times Throughout The Day. I Started Tracking The Occurrences: 6/27 X 1, 6/28 X1. I Made A Appointment With The Service Manager At The Dealership On 6/29. I Kept The Car And It Reproduced The Problem 7/1 And 7/4@ 70,697miles. I Made Arrangements To Allow Them To Take The Car And Get A Loaner So That They Could Hopefully Reproduce The Problem. During This July 10 Visit They Had The Car Over 3 Weeks And Completed 2 Software Updates @ Nc. On 9/2/10 @ 72,449 Miles, The Braking Prob Has Recurred. *tr

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

On The Listed Date Above Our Family Was On En Route To Our Vacation Destination, Traveling In Our armada With Camper In Tow. While Going Thru The Mountains In Virginia We Had Lost All Power To Our Transmission Causing Us To Pull Over Onto The Shoulder Of The Expressway. After Some Time We Where Finally Able To Get Towed To A Dealership In Covington. As Soon As The Service Manager Looked At The Vehicle He New Exactly What Had Happened. He Explained That The Tail Pipe Had Disconnected From The Muffler And That The Hot Exhaust Burned Up The Wire Harness That Controlled All The Power To The Transmission. This They Had Seen And Fixed 4 To 5 Times At This Dealership. My Complaint Is That The Piping From The Muffler Some How Eroded Away And Disconnected Allowing The Exhaust To Burn Up The Wire Harness, As Well As The Hose That Supplies The Compressed Air To The Air Shocks. This To Me Is A Very Serious Safety Issue. Fortunately We Were In The Right Hand Lane And No Other Vehicles Were Near To Cause A Potential Accident. We Were Able To Get Over Safely Although We Had Lost All Transmission Power Going Up This Mountain. Not Sure If Anybody Else Has Reported This Safety Issue. But nissan Must Know About It Based On The Service Manager Seeing This That Many Times. Why Would One Have Your Electric Wiring Running So Close To A Potential Hot Source That Could Disable Your Vehicle While Driving? I Recently Was Talking To A Coworker Who Has A 2004 armada And Told Him About What Happened To Us. He Had Said That He Just Had His Tail Pipe Welded Back On But Had It Done At A Muffler Shop So This Was Not Documented At A Dealership. He Had Said That He Could Smell Something Burning But He Had No Other Issues. He Was Lucky And He May Want To Check It Out Because Of The Experience That I Had. Please Look Into This Because I Feel It Is A Serious Safety Issue.

While Driving, The Brake Light Came On And When Pressing The Pedal It Did Not Break As Usual And It Took Much Longer To Stop And The Pedal Would Vibrate And The Car Made A Grinding Noise. We Pulled Over And Turned The Engine Off And On And Then It Worked. We Have Had This Problem Happen Several Times Before But It Is Happening More Often, It Happened Three Times In The Past Week, To The Point That We Are Afraid To Drive It Since This Might Cause An Accident.
