I had an issue recently where I lost 4WD (no symbol on dash, selector knob does nothing) and the ESP and Traction Control lights are permanently on.

I had some faults read and had a communication error with ABS module. So I swapped the module, but still have the above problem but also I now have my rear brake lights permanently on. Even when the car is switched off.

My garage told me I need the new (second hand) ABS pump recoding to my car. I have another garage (more of a 4x4 specialist) saying they are not coded. He even asked for my reg so feel like he looked something up.

Not sure where to go next.. Well other than of course a Nissan dealer, which I'm trying to avoid!

Thanks for any pointers.

Hi Landmannnn, I actually did contact Billcar on your recommendation from my other post. They also said they don't believe the abs pump needs coding... Unfortunately they are quite far from me (Leicestershire) so not really an option for taking my car to them.

I will have to return to my local garage and try and tell them the pump doesn't need coding even though they seemed quite adamant it did. Bit awkward.

On another positive note, I fixed my coolant leak. Had a broken plastic elbow on that rear heater pipe assembly. Just cut it out and replaced in situ with some hoses and elbows.

I live in Warwickshire and take mine to Billcar if needed. A bit of a trek, but worth it.
(there are some Aussie members on here who would regard a 2 hour drive to a dealer as virtually next door)

Are you talking about wheel speed sensors? No I haven't. But The code readings didn't flag any of them being out.

I'm not adverse to driving to Billcar, the problem is if they need me to leave the car with them.

So I'm having to put it into another local garage who hopefully has more in depth diagnostic tools than the previous garage.

Either they can recode the new pump or
I have to send my old pump away to be fixed
Or something else!

I feel powerless when it's all down to code reading as no one can afford the proper kit to diagnose and fix your own cars these days.

Plus side. Coolant system fixed.
