2007 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

problem #1

May 012007

Armada 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,000 miles


Since approximately 34,000 miles I have experienced intermittent problems with the ABS system on my 2004 Nissan Armada. Periodically while driving, the brake light will illuminate when brakes are applied and the ABS system activates. The brakes begin to groan, are spongy, have reduced braking power, and make a sound like a large spring being released. The vehicle continues these symptoms until the ignition is turned off. The speed at which the event occurs varies from 5 to 50mph. This has happened an average of once every 2 to 3 weeks since May 2007. If the vehicle is turned off and then on again the system resets and performs normally. Each time I took the car to the dealership no problem codes could be found and there were no symptoms. I was finally able to take the vehicle to the dealer while the malfunction was occurring and take a test drive with a technician. His first words upon driving the vehicle were "sounds and feels like the ABS acting up." He then checked for codes and found C1179. The technician reprogrammed the ABS under ntb06-040 program. One week later the problem re-occurred and has been happening every 2 to 3 weeks since. I was able to bring the car in again while malfunctioning and the same problem code C1179 was found even after the tsb fix.
