Warning lights I have the same problem. While driving, all of a sudden the speedometer goes to 0 and all warning lights come on, the brake warning light, abs brake warning light, the swerving car light (don't know what that's called), and sometimes the main engine failure light. Then several minutes later, all of a sudden the speedometer starts working again and all failure lights go out. . I also noticed that the top won't go down when this is occurring.. What is going on?

When all the doors are closed - the warning light for door ajar(drivers side) remains on. Warning comes up on the screen to shut door, however when checked doors are closed. Switched the door switchs around to see if moving them to the passenger would light up the passenger warning light. The drivers warning light stayed on. Appears not to be the switch going bad.


Either a faulty door switch or the module will cause this. Not quite sure where the module is in your vehicle but all of them have one. ... 2004 Nissan Armada
