I've got this problem now with my 04 armada...brake light would come on at low speeds and had some braking left but made a nasty grinding noise. Would reset when car was turned off and on. This morning went to the dealer after it happened... They hooked up the computer and the ABS code of delta S Sen popped up C1179. They think its the brake booster seal causing it to loose vacuum and thus triggering the delta sensor...
make sense to anyone else before I spend the money?

hello everyone i have a 04 armada purchased used in 06 from hilltop nissan in nj . i noticed that besides the bogging and loss of power issue that nissan never found the problem ! they said it was the rear tubes from the cataletic converter and they were not covered under my platinum warranty ! and that i had to pay $900 to fix it , so i did then then problem was still there , so then one day the engine started to misfire then i took it back , right away they said you need a new engine , so they had the car 21 days ,changed the engine never gave me a loaner car either. but then the bogging and loss of power was still there , then eventually the misfire came back worse! then i went to another dealer in nyc called nissan of manhattan then they tried to blame the misfire on my upgraded stereo system cause they saw my aftermarket radio and my second alternator on the vehicle so i took it back then removed the 2nd alternator and went to another dealer and told them i had the bogging loss of power upon accelration and the missfire this time this dealer also said i needed a new engine ! (when i had the new engine replaced by other dealer! and clearly was not the problem!) so they proceeded to replace the engine again and cataletic converter ,and told me i needed a new belt tensioner , and told me i needed the original nissan coils for sparkplugs so nissan could warranty the work but theyt still didnt fix both the bogging loss of power and the misfire ! this time this dealer had the vehile 2 months ! and they gave me the vehicle in worse condition. so i left and got the lemon law attorney and got nissan to reimburse me with $5000. so i went to my mechanic and he found i wire from the coils that needed to be repaired and that fixed the misfire and i bought a new fuel pump and that fixed the bogging. so all those new parts ,new engine and stuff was not necessary ,maybe they were just trying to milk the warranty? but my current brake porblem is that the brake light comes on either while driving or parked with engine on then when i drive and apply the brake the pedal sinks in some followed by a spring noise and decreased braking but still braking left, does anyone know what this can be? i repalaced the wheel hubs and nothing , the rotors and nothing new brakes , nothing.....maybe a computer or electrical issue? any help is greatly appreciated.

I reading the post of brake problems and it is the same thing happening with me, and the 2005 Armada, I also took the truck to the dearlership and they said that it was the brake booster and it would cost min. $850. to fix it but that I would still have trouble. I love my ARMADA but I do not feel safe anymore driving it. The company obviously needs to looking into the part and making it a recall issue, any suggestions to get the ball rolling........very frustrated Armada owner

Hi, I am having brake problems and the Nissan dealership suggested to replace the Brake Booster, did your problem with the brakes fix after you replaced the booster or did the problem continue....very worried driver:(

I was also in need of front brakes as well..was told by someone with same problem that replacing their front brakes worked not replacing booster. I was going to just do that but with my consistant complaining to the dealer they replace the booster (me just having to buy part, no labor charge..$450 mind you!)Still feel un safe since I keep hearing this issue will re apear!!! Front brakes still should have been good for more miles as well.
Attorney general is my only thought on this with a number of us all fileing complants

I had the same brake problem with my 2004 Armada except that my brake would lock up on me when warning lights would appear. It didn't matter how fast I was driving (5mph or 80mph) when warning lights came on (I usually wouldn't notice it) and I used my brakes, they would lock up on me. Initially they reset computer and that was only a temporary fix.They did replace my rotors though. There was a recall on those so pursue it. I eventually traded in my 2004 Armada for for a 2008 Armada and mentioned nothing about my continued issues to dealership. I was told that the only way that they could figure out my problem was to witness the activity while the problem was active (it happened periodically without any rhyme or reason). That was highly risky considering the consequences. My son was just born when I decided to trade it in. I didn't want to take any chances. The 2008 model is heaven on earth. Good luck

I just bought an '06 Armada 40 days ago. While driving at speeds of about 35-40 also had the same symptoms that everyone else is talking about on here......question, did your breaks actually "lock up" and tires skid to a stop, or did it just have the crunchy noise that others share in this blogg?
I took ours to the Nissan dealership today and spent $75 to have the tec look at the computer....he said the reprograming of the computer was already done (prob from previous owner). So I was told that it could continue with the same problem as all other Armada owners on here....My wife just wants to make sue they won't lock up on her and skid to a stop like you wrote.
Thanks for your input.
