Re: VDC OFF and SLIP lights on!! ABS problem?
This past winter in No. Va. my 2006 FX45 experienced the exact problem that Larry describes. As spring approached and the weather warmed (finally), the VDC OFF and SLIP light malfunction gradually eased and is now non-existent. My best judgement (including techs at Tysons Infiniti) is that a wheel sensor connection is not snug, and loosens when cold contracts the plug connection and then reconnects as weather warms and expands the connecting plug(s). Have not yet stopped long enough to locate schematic of connectors and then explore connectivity at the several points in this system. Any insight from a veteran of this problem would help us all.
