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.

I too along with hundreds of other people are having serious brake issues. I bought my 04 Armada in January 2010 and I fell in love with it. Till about three weeks after I had it the ABS went out on it but at the time I had no idea what went on. All I knew was it felt like I had no brakes and I had my child in the car. I live in a town with a lot of people where the streets are always congested and sometimes you have to make quick stops. I immediately took my car to a local mechanic but made the mistake of turning off the vehicle. Everyone thought I was so idiotic woman we had no clue what she was talking about. The very next day it happened again so I took it back and this time didn't turn off the car just to prove I was not an idiot!! They confirmed it was the ABS and to take it to Nissan so that is what I did. I drove straight over there. They reprogrammed the VDC code ($200) and all was well for about a week. This time I had my car full of family that had came to visit so I just turned off the car and turned it back on. It was fine and once I got the opportunity I took it back to Nissan where they proceeded to tell me that the reprogram didn't work and I needed a brake booster ($775). It has been one month and what do you know It happened again. So I filed a complaint with Nissan and it was referred to a regional specialist who proceeded to tell me that Nissan is not in a position to help me becuase my car is out of warrenty. Are you serious?? They can't fix their own problem?? I have been researching this and there is a service bullentin out , several law suits and hundreds of complaints. So my suggestion to you all is don't stop complaining. I am going to hire a lawyer, call the local tv station, newspaper, file a complaint with the attorney general's office. Do WHATEVER I have to do to keep my family safe and to make them own up to there mistake!!

almost the same thing happened to me and after a few tries at the dealership years ago a company rep came out and said it was an electrical problem. They had one more chance to fix or we got a new car. They got serious and fixed it and have not had a problem with it since. You may want to try and get a rep to personally come and see the problem.

i was driving my armada to pick up my boys and was in traffic and trying to stop the brake light (only) came on and the brake pedal started to bounce back and shudder as i pushed it down. Felt like i had very little stopping power. I pulled over and stopped at a gas station to check the brake fluid and it was fine. I started the truck and the light was off and the brakes seemed to be fine the rest of the way home. I see some posts related here, but not clear to what exact the problem was, and i dont want to spend big money at the dealership if they are just guessing. Has anyone that has had this problem identified the long term fix?

Same thing for us years ago. Nissan tried to fix 3 times and we gave them one more try and they had a rep come to dealership. It was an electrical problem that once fixed, we haven't had the problem. Has been running great ever since.

Do you know exactly what the electrical problem was that the dealership fixed? My fiance has experienced severe brake failure twice (thankfully at low speeds). One of these failures occurred after Nissan claimed to correct the problem after updating and resting the computer. I would really appreciate some help before we are stuck dishing out piles of money.

On my Nissan armada the problem was a faulty sensor in the master cylinder the dealer charged me 384.00 to fix the problem. Haven't had no problems since.

I have the same exact problem with my '06 Armada.About a year ago I took it in to the Nissan dealer and because I turned the car off they couldnt find anything wrong. I was finally close enough to the dealership the next time it happened and I insisted someone drive the car and see what I was talking about. I was told it was a software issue and they are supose to be fixing it. We will see...
What was the outcome of your situation?
I have small kids also and it is scary when it feels like the car wont stop!

I have lost my brakes like this 5 times and the dealership has given me a run around. There are youtube videos on this occurrences THANK GOD as my husband thought I was making it up.
There is also a bracket holding up the ER cable near the rear differential that is rusting out and snapping off. When this happens the ER cable wraps around the differential and pulls the drive train out of the rear axle creating an instant stop no matter what speed you are going. Nissan will not address or even check this part when the vehicle is in for repair or safety inspection. The State Troopers and Local Sheriff responding to the resulting accident said it was a miracle I kept the Armada from rolling.
