Nissan Juke Service and Repair Manual : Precaution for Brake Control system

Always perform a pre-driving check to drive the vehicle.

Always check speed and safety while driving the vehicle.

To operate CONSULT-III while driving, more than one person is required to be in the vehicle to avoid interference to driving and ensure safety.

Slight vibrations are felt on the brake pedal and the operation noises occur, when ESP function, TCS function, ABS function EBD function or brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function operates. This is not a malfunction because it is caused by ESP function, TCS function, ABS function EBD function or brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function that is normally operated.

When starting engine or when starting vehicle just after starting engine, brake pedal may vibrate or motor operating noise may be heard from engine compartment. This is normal condition.

Brake stopping distance may become longer than models without ABS function depending on the road conditions, when ABS function is operated on slippery road like rough road, gravel road or snowy road.

When a malfunction is indicated, always collect information from the customer about conditions of occurrence, estimate cause and perform operation. Check brake booster operation, brake fluid level and brake fluid leakage, as well as electrical system.

The optimum performance is achieved by control for ESP function, TCS function, ABS function EBD function and brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function when all of brakes, suspensions and tires installed on the vehicle are the specified size and parts. Brake performance and controllability may be negatively affected when other parts than the specified are installed.

Brake stopping distance may become longer and steering stability may be negatively affected, when tires in different size and combination or other parts than the specified are used.

When a radio (including wiring), antenna and antenna lead line are located near ABS actuator and electric unit (control unit), a malfunction or improper operation may occur for the control of ESP function, TCS function, ABS function EBD function and brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function.

When the following items are replaced by other parts than genuine parts or modified, ABS warning lamp, brake warning lamp and ESP warning lamp may turn ON, and the control may not operate normally for ESP function, TCS function, ABS function EBD function and brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function.

- Suspension component parts (shock absorber, spring, bushing and others) - Tire and wheel (other than the specified size) - Brake component parts (brake pad, disc rotor, brake caliper and others) - Engine component parts (ECM, muffler and others) - Body reinforcement component parts (rollover bar, tower bar and others)

When suspension, tire and brake component parts are excessively worn or deteriorated and the vehicle is driven, ABS warning lamp, brake warning lamp and ESP warning lamp may turn ON, and the control may not operate normally for ESP function, TCS function, ABS function EBD function and brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function.

ABS warning lamp, brake warning lamp and ESP warning lamp may turn ON, when only front wheel or rear wheel is rotated using a free roller. This is not a malfunction, because it is caused by wheel speed difference between wheel that is rotated and wheel that is not rotated. In this case, perform self-diagnosis, check selfdiagnosis results, and erase memory.

When power supply voltage is not normal, ABS warning lamp, brake warning lamp and ESP warning lamp turn ON. ABS actuator and electric unit (control unit) stops control for ESP function, TCS function, ABS function EBD function and brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function. Ordinary brake operates. After power supply returns to normal, ABS warning lamp, brake warning lamp and ESP warning lamp turn OFF. The control becomes operative for ESP function, TCS function, ABS function EBD function and brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function.

Brake pedal vibrates and operation sound occurs during sudden acceleration and cornering, when ESP function, TCS function or brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function is operated. This is not a malfunction because it is caused by ESP function, TCS function or brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function that is operated normally.

ESP warning lamp may turn ON and ESP function, TCS function and brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function may not normally operate, when driving on a special road the is extremely slanted (bank in a circuit course). This is not a malfunction if the status returns to normal for ESP function, TCS function and brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function after the engine is started again. In this case, perform self-diagnosis, check self-diagnosis results, and erase memory.

A malfunction in yaw rate/side/decel G sensor system may be detected when the vehicle sharply turns during a spin turn, acceleration turn or drift driving while ESP function, TCS function and brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function are OFF (ESP OFF switch is pressed and ESP OFF indicator lamp is in ON status).

This is not a malfunction if the status returns to normal for ESP function, TCS function and brake limited slip differential (BLSD) function after the engine is started again. In this case, perform self-diagnosis, check selfdiagnosis results, and erase memory
