#76 of 130 Nissan Armada Brake Booster Problem
Apr 14, 2010 (12:28 pm)
I want to add that the brake power booster is defective as well. I just got back from the Dealer and they are charging me $833 to repair the brake booster. Itís not the fee, Im disappointed with the fact that this happened to me several times and was not addressed properly. The first time it happened was in 2006. This was months after I had my brake rotors/pads fixed (part of their recall) I own a 2005 Nissan Armada. Yesterday, I almost got into an accident when my brakes failed to engage. Fortunately, I was driving on the fast lane and was able to merge to the emergency lane. It all started when I stepped on the brake pedal, there was this grinding sound, shook the vehicle and the brake light went on, I slowed down and eventually stopped. Have your brake booster checked! In addition to the recall fix from 2005, have this inspected before you get into an accident.

Come to Find out after I got my Brake Booster replaced I still had the lights on the dash coming on and the brake were still malfunctioning so I took it to another Nissan dealership and they found out that the problem is in the Master Cylinder. The sensors were bad and they charged me 384.00 to fix this and we haven't had any problems since I got this fixed 2 weeks ago.

We have been having these problems since about 30K, at 33K, under warranty, the dealer said they couldn't duplicate the problem (brakes lose 75% effectiveness, loud noises, brake light comes on, shaking, vibrations, etc...) My wife drives the vehicle the most. It was sporadic, but she knew the "fix" was to pull over asap and turn the truck off then on. (To me this says ELECTRICAL). Whenever it happened, she couldn't get it to the dealer without turning it off and we knew they would say "Can't duplicate". Then last year I started doing some research. Lo and behold others have same problem and there are service bulletins out! Why weren't we informed?
So we take it in to have VDC reprogrammed and promised this would fix the issue. (Why didn't they do this when we had 33K, the bulletin was out then). So we thought everything was good until 2 days ago. Same problem. Now they say brake booster and we have to pay. I have heard brake booster doesn't solve it. Replacing Master cylinder doesn't solve it. Does anyone have the details of any ELECTRICAL fix besides the TSB?? Currently truck is at the shop and I am on the phone with Nissan 1.
Any help much appreciated.

I've had the brakes go out twice and am taking it to the dealer today hopefully to get the electrical upgraded, ABS software upgrade along with the VDC upgrade. Thats what I've gathered from all the previous threads about this. I've only ready of one person actually having the problem fixed and that was user name (shopinful). I'm not expecting much to get fixed from the dealer to be honest.

I had amy brake booster replaced at my expense of course and haven't had any furhter problems. That was just a few months ago so knock on wood it doesn't start again. From what I've gathered it depends if your dealer bothers to research your complaints. When these problems 1st started the engineers had to wait until enough people brought their cars in to figure out the issue, Supposedly they either reboot the brake booster and if that doesn't work then replace it. But this all is out of your pocket and will run about $800-1000. Hope this helps a bit.

i actually did end up getting my ABS system replaced for free by NISSAN. Its been about 1 year and I havent been having any issues at all. YES, I did have to go thru a few channels to get it done. But, when they decided to handle it, they came thru. Once again,. I went thru CARMAX and NISSAN and called them until they knew my number on their caller I.D. if it is truly as important as it SHOULD BE to you.. You'll say on them until they take care of it. I wish you all the best.
