I had the same brake issue on my 2005 titan. They fixed it two times and the second time seems to have solved the problem. But the truck is a piece of junk. It have been in the shop for over 60 days most in the last 15 months most of it electrical issue. About 6800 dollars in repairs. They have no idea just throwing parts at the problem. Nissan customer service says sorry about you luck.

The 04 had problematic window motors that needed to be replaced.
On the check engine light a code has been set and needs to be downloaded via an OBD II code reader. Most of the auto parts stores could do it for you for free.
The 04 also had grounding issues that could cause your idling issues.
Haven't heard anything about the cruise control.

I've recently had the same problem. My 04 LE 142K had this problem 130K+- It stalled from idle intermently a few times one day then sporadically every few days over the next few weeks. Finally it stalled dead on the highway I had it towed to the nearest dealer. Luckily the dealer was great I was pissed at the time because it is also my primary work truck. I dropped (towed) it off 10:00am Thursday and picked it up 6:00PM Friday. They only charged me $150 +- for the repair even tough their top guy was on it all day hooked up to the diagnostic. Turn out it was the ECM (electronic control module) relay this sends power to the computer controlled ignition. My guess base on the symptoms after the fact is that frequency modulation at idle/low RPM caused the contact pad on the micro switch to vibrate due to a worn out electromagnet coil (inside the relay). Havenít had problem since. Hope this helps.

#751 of 875 '04 Titan radiator leak at 50K miles

Has anyone had any radiator/overheating problems with their titans? I just can't believe that at 50K miles the radiator blows out. Just one day my tuck started bucking and i immediately noticed the oil pressure light on, then noticed th temp all the way to H. After pulling over to figure out what the heck? i finally was able to add coolant, stopped one block from Auto Zone, Thank God. then i drove home with no problem. figured maybe a fluke but i would keep an eye on it. over the next several days it was intermittent, some days no problem, other days it would dump the coolant when i shut off the engine, and/or i was parked angled down. my driveway is a lil steep and i back in. so after i had enough, the dealer was very unhelpful saying, "your out of warranty". so know i need a $400 radiator on a 4 Y.O. tuck with 50K miles, almost unheard of to me.

I have a 2006 Nissan Titan - bought it new - and I have 69,000 miles on it. Last week I had to purchase my SECOND replacement radiator - first one failed at around 38k miles, and this one just went out. Cheap plastic/alum crap -and of course it's not a recall item (can't believe I'm the only one with this problem).

I have an 04 LE crew with 151K original radiator never a problem. My following comments are only base upon what I've read. Is the coolant the correct PH (too acidic or alkaline) It may have been at some point in time and deteriorated the water pump blades to cause overheating.. Is the thermostat working correctly It controls the amount of coolant flow between the engine and radiator... Has any foreign chemicals ever been inadvertently poured into the coolant system to cause internal clogs or corrosion? ie radiator stop leak material. I recommend a complete radiator flush from a trusted mechanic and urge them to inspect the inner surfaces of the water pump assembly for caustic or mechanical damage. Don't use tap water use only distilled water for mixing the concentrate or buy premixed. I can't think of anything other than a caustic liquid or electrolysis the anode (your radiator) the cathode ( a dissimilar metal in direct contact with the coolant) this only applies if you have some kind of electrical short via the coolant system- that would eat up aluminum. Best of luck
P.S. I've had my share of lemons and yes the dealers suck and the manufactures do as well because the could care less thats why I'll never buy a Chrysler/Dodge new again unless it was built before me 1972.
#754 of 875 Nissan Customer Service Sucks

Last week a rim on my 2006 Titan broke. The lug nuts and studs stayed in place, but the rim broke. Because the truck was out of warranty (mine had 46K instead of the 36K warranty number), Nissan said I had to pay. They said that rims break. "Sometimes it happens" said the dealer. The regional rep agreed. Any other Nisaan owners have the same issue? Or others have bad customer service issues with Nissan? We currently own 2 Nissans which we bought new that have the same rims..."That sometimes it happens" that the rims break... Good thing mine broke at 10-15 mph and not 60...otherwise I wouldn't be telling you this today.
I'd never buy another Nissan again...

Is that the 17 or 18" rim that you're talking about?
