The contact owns a 2006 Nissan Armada. The contact stated that the parking brake would become stuck sporadically. In addition, when decelerating to a stop, the brakes would grind and rattle abnormally. The parking brake light was illuminated even when the brake was not engaged. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who stated that the parking brake sensor would need to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The contact reported the failure to the manufacturer who offered no assistance. The current mileage was approximately 67,000 and the failure mileage was approximately 60,000.

Emergency brake light has come on when driving at low speeds. When trying to stop, the car has low braking power and grinds and jumps. Almost in 3 accidents now. You have to stop and turn the car off and back on. There are thousands of complaints out there. Nissan plays dumb and tries to charge you $180 diagnostic charge and then $900 for a brake booster. Needs to be recalled immediately. Why has the NHTSA not investigated"?"

Recurring, intermittent brake issue with 2006 Nissan Armada off road SE. Parking brake light will come on resulting in severe shuddering in the vehicle that is more pronounced during braking. Braking capability is reduced significantly resulting in a potentially dangerous situation, particularly due to the transient nature of the issue. Vehicle must be turned off to reset condition. Nissan dealership tried reprogramming vdc to fix which did not work. Now they are looking at replacing brake boost actuator. Based on my research, problem has been common in 2004 and later model Armadas.
