 2001 nissan frontier xe abs failure. when stopping on semi wet level surface abs engaged followed by complete brake system failure. no brake warning lamp or abs warning lamp was on. could repeat this failure mode in nearby parking lot. abs lamp came on after second failure. now brakes work in non abs mode (can apply full braking pressure to the point of locking the wheels when abs warning lamp is on.) *tr

 The abs sensor was leaking fluid onto the axle, which caused the wheel to be non-responsive. will be taking vehicle to dealership to have mechanic check out the leakage. the consumer was concerned for his safety. please provide additional information. *jb

 Failure of the braking system caused brake pedal to drop half way to the floor (approximately level with gas pedal) and inability to slow or stop the vehicle. none of multiple attempts to apply the service brakes resulted in any braking effect and engine surge was detected in at least one braking attempt. driver resorted to emergency brake, but too late to avoid collision in intersection, two vehicles destroyed, four people where injured. *la

 Being a former mechanic and owning a 1995 nissan previously i am appalled at the performance of the braking system.numerous times when braking i can feel the pedal pulsate and the system only had minimal braking force although i applied extreme pressure to the pedal.i am certain there is a design flaw,for i would never had this accident in my 1995 nissan pick-up and i'm certain someone is going to lose their life.

 I have a 2001 nissan frontier that the right inner pad is worn to the sensor. the disc pad is wearing at noticeable angle from leading edge to trailing edge. the other pads are wearing normally. the truck also has a severe brake pull to the right. the pull is worse when hot. the car is undriveable at this time. the car will swith lanes when the brakes are applied. as an ase certified auto technician i believe the cause is the use of phenolic caliper pistons. phenolic pistons are known to cause brake pulls, locked up brakes and uneven pad wear.*ak

 Check brake light came on and stayed on. brake line corroded to the extent that brake fluid leaked out and emptied the master cylinder. could only stop if the master cylinder was constantly refilled. master cylinder would empty as soon as the brake pedal was pushed. *jb

 While driving at 4:30 am on july 9th, 2005, my wife experienced a momentary brake faluire while exiting a frewway ramp at anthem way in anthem, az wjile traveling about 65 mph. the brakes restored themselves prior to a stoplight at the off-ramp of anthem way and i-17. i have experienced this on a few occaions, but thought it was just my imagination. i have not sought recourse from the dealer, even though the vehicle is under an extended warranty, as i realize that they have to reproduce the problem, which does not manifest itself that often. i believe having been in fleet mangement for 25+ years, that it may be a faulty brake valve. also i am a member of nafa. there was not any accident.
