PRECAUTIONS PFP:00001
Precautions for Battery Service AFS0028N
Before disconnecting the battery, lower both the driver and passenger windows. This will prevent any interfer-
ence between the window edge and the vehicle when the door is opened/closed. During normal operation, the
window slightly raises and lowers automatically to prevent any window to vehicle interference. The automatic
window function will not work with the battery disconnected.
Precautions for Brake System AFS0028O
? Recommended fluid is brake fluid ?DOT 3?.
? Never reuse drained brake fluid.
? Be careful not to splash brake fluid on painted areas such as body. If brake fluid is splashed, wipe it off
and flush area with water immediately.
? Never use mineral oils such as gasoline or kerosene to clean. They will ruin rubber parts and cause
improper operation.
? Using a flare nut torque wrench, securely tighten brake tube
flare nuts.
? Brake system is an important safety part. If a brake fluid leak is
detected, always disassemble the affected part. If a malfunction
is detected, replace part with a new one.
? Before working, turn ignition switch OFF.
? When installing brake piping, be sure to check torque.
Precautions for Brake Control AFS0028P
? During ABS operation, brake pedal lightly vibrates and a mechanical noise may be heard. This is normal.
? Just after starting vehicle after ignition switch ON, brake pedal may vibrate or motor operating noise may
be heard from engine compartment. This is a normal status of operation check.
? Stopping distance may be longer than that of vehicles without ABS when vehicle drives on rough, gravel,
or snow-covered (fresh, deep snow) roads.
? When an error is indicated by ABS or another warning lamp, collect all necessary information from cus-
tomer (what symptoms are present under what conditions) and check for simple causes before starting
diagnostic servicing. Besides electrical system inspection, check booster operation, brake fluid level, and
oil leaks.
? If tire size and type are used in an improper combination, or brake pads are not Genuine NISSAN parts,
stopping distance or steering stability may deteriorate.
? If there is a radio, antenna, or antenna lead-in wire (including wiring) near control module, ABS function
may have a malfunction or error.
? If aftermarket parts (car stereo, CD player, etc.) Have been installed, check for incidents such as harness
pinches, open circuits, and improper wiring.
