Unhappy Nissan Pathfinder ABS 4WD ESP Handbrake and Antiskid lights on Dashboard

Hello People

I am writing to make inquiry about a Nissan Pathfinder.recently imported from the UK to Kenya. Itís a NISSAN PATHFINDER 2009/10 2.5 dCi 171 Tekna with a diesel engine.

Recently the car has been experiencing problems.When switching on the car the ABS, Handbrake, Anti-skid and 4WD lights appear on the dashboard and persist. The car also has poor acceleration and doesn't switch gear. Could someone tell me what could be the issue here and how best to solve this. Would also need some guidance on the areas that need to be checked that may the cause this problem.

Thanks
Kev

Hi Kev, welcome to the forum.

The first thing you need to do is plug in an OBDII reader and get the codes for those lights. It could be as simple as a bad wheel sensor although I don't see how that would affect the acceleration and transmission. I suspect you'll get multiple codes.
In my experience with ABS codes, you want a professional OBDII reader that will brake down and tell you where the issue is, ie rear right wheel ABS sensor. The cheap ones usually don't do that.
Something you could try is disconnecting the negative terminal of the battery for 10 minutes, this will reset many components. If the lights/codes come back immediately is most likely due to a bad sensor.

This site specializes on the 2013+ Pathfinder, you are welcome to stick around but the information applicable to your vehicle will be very limited.

Good luck !

I recently learned that on Mazdas, the one and only source of speed info comes from the ABS system (sensors reading wheel rotation). The speedometer works with a signal from the ABS so does the transmission to know at what speed the vehicle is going.
Don't know if Nissan does the same but that would explain the issues with the transmission.
