brake, SLIP, VDC off lights on

Hi all,
I have brake, VDC-off, and SLIP light on on my 2003 FX35. It just came up last night. I am able to drive it without any visible problems. I called infiniti service, and they hinted toward lack of brake fluid. Did anybody else have this problem, and how they fixed it? Thanks
Ned

Re: brake, SLIP, VDC off lights on

brake fluid low will cause this, most likely cause...

Do a search... it's been discussed quite a bit recently... kinda wonder why though? Coincidence?

Re: brake, SLIP, VDC off lights on

just make sure that your fluid level is up to the line. Does this only happen when start up and the lights lite up?????

Yeah I know I've answered quite a few in the past week or 2. Please search and you will see many reasons why this happens.

Re: brake, SLIP, VDC off lights on

Yes, mine was doing the exact same thing a few weeks ago. I took it into the dealer and they found my cruise control switch was bad. Does your cruise control work? Mine stopped working when this happened. Someone else mentioned that their throttle position sensor went bad and caused all those warning lights to come on.

This happened to me once because the ground on the main wiring harness was loose. Covered under warranty.

Re: brake, SLIP, VDC off lights on

after adding a little bit of break fluid, all warning lights went away. Thanks guys for your help and input.

Re: brake, SLIP, VDC off lights on

I had the same problem in my 2005 FX35: "Brake" light on, "VDC Off" light on, "Slip" light on. The first few times it happened when driving downhill and went away when I shut down and restarted. By the end of the Thanksgiving weekend (these things always happen at the start of a long weekend) all three lights came on as soon as I started rolling, even on a level surface. I called the dealer Monday morning and they suggested adding brake fluid and having brake pads checked.

The brake fluid was at the minimum line. Filling it to the full line fixed the problem.

A week later I took the vehicle in and they found the rear brake pads were worn to the limit and needed to be replaced. The reason worn brake pads cause this is because when the pads get thinner, the brake piston has to extend further and that takes more fluid.

Bottom line: If you have this problem, add brake fluid and then get the brakes checked!
