      if you let it sit overnight it will probably start to bleed now. if it doesn't take the lines loose at the master cylinder let it drip out there first. then close it there and start bleeding your breaks. if their is air trapped in your master cylinder it wont let it pump break fluid .

      2.5 hours labor plus parts. kif you can find a good used steering knuckle for about $100 then maybe you get out of this for $300 to $350 total maybe.

      I believe code C1103 indicates a problem with the right front wheel speed sensor. A bad sensor would cause these lights to come on. Low tire pressure or incorrect size tire could also cause this. Make sure all 4 tires are the same size and air pressure. Then have ABS wheel speed sensor and wiring inspected. You most likely need a new sensor.

      ABS WHEEL SPEED SENSOR NOT READING CORRECTLY. CODE TELLS WHICH SENSOR. I BELIEVE RIGHT FRONT. CODE SETS AND ILLUMINATES LIGHTS WHEN THE SENSOR SPEED DOES NOT MATCH OTHER WHEEL SPEEDS. COULD BE CAUSED BY BAD SENSOR INCORRECT TIRE SIZE OR INFLATION PRESSURE. NISSAN/INFINITI HAS RELEASED A BULLETIN FOR THIS ISSUE

      VDC = Vehicle Dynamic Control and when 'off' then check the following items;
      1. Check brake fluid level (refill with DOT 3 type fluid as necessary)
      2. Check all ABS sensors and clips to make sure the wires are not pulled out of plug
      3. Check ABS sensors on all wheel bearings.

    Is brake light switch fairly easy to replace for a do it yourself job?
    Melissa had similar problems. I have to slam the brake peddle sometimes to allow shifter to engage. The brake lights only work on occasion. All of the bulbs are fine. I don't have a Chiltons to work from.

    Is it necessary to get rotors refaced when getting brake pads replaced?
     
    • Jimm

      Not required - though if the current brake rotors are not being replaced; have sufficient thickness (material) remaining - then you can easily give them a slightly rougher surface for the brake pads to 'seat' by simply rubbing the brake rotor surface with coarse sandpaper. Do this lightly on both the in-board) inside and outboard (outside) rotor surfaces.
      If the brake rotors need replacing due to warpage or too thin - then try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (Rock Auto) list the front brake rotor from around $13.70 each for your vehicle.

    Why does my brake light fuse keep blowing, what do I check I have multimeter.
    They don't blow instantly but within minutes of driving and braking.

      First, have you changed the bulbs recently? Are they the correct wattage? Check the sockets for any shorts to ground.

    Car won't shift out of park and break lights are not on
    I replaced the break light switch and I still have the issue with car not being able to come out of park and break light not coming on. What is weird is sometimes I can come out of park and sometimes I can't.

    I am changing the rear pads on my i35, but the cylinder won't push back in to make room for the new pads.
    I have used the reccomended tool to do so, but it won't budge in... just out further. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

      does the cylinder spin back in or just push on this model?

    When I press the brakes when the headlights are on all the brake lights go out except for one
    When the headlights are turned off the brake lights all come on when pressed, however the ones that go out are dimmer at this time than the light that comes on
