2005 Nissan Titan Owner Comments

The truck stalled out no power had to crash into shoulder of road and embankment. Glad we survived the bumpy crash, I just had suspension work done that saved us. We read the ipdm board or ECM relay is bad and causes this stalling to happen. Part number for ECM relay 284B7-CW29.

While moving forward from park, the rear tires locked up. I reversed and then moved forward to try to free the tires. The emergency brake was off. It took several times of shifting gears before the vehicle would move freely. I researched the internet and found several other Titan owners had the same problem. They traced the cause to the rear emergency brake pads dislodging from the hub and becoming lodged in the rear rotor. My mechanic removed the rear rotor on the right side and the emergency brake pads fell out. The left side pads were still mounted but with one poke with a screwdriver, the pads fell out. One youtube video shows a Titan with this problem but additionally the brake pad broke the rear caliper bracket.

On 03/27/2006 driving to work in my 2005 Nissan Titan [xxx] pickup accelerated on its on. I was stopped at a stop light merging in to traffic when it accelerated forward by it self and with my foot on the brake. When this accrued I tried to put it in to neutral, still nothing happen, even with both of my feet barring down on the brake the tires where burning rubber and I was still moving slowly forward. Finally I turned the ignition off and it shut down, I waited a few moments and tried to start the engine again. At this time it did it again and turn the engine off again, waited a few more minutes and tried again, at this time it started correctly and I drove it directly to kraft Nissan dealership for there service department. Kraft Nissan took the afternoon to look over the truck, at around 3:01 pm the service writer called and said that they could not duplicate the problem and my truck is ready to be picked up. I said that the problem is real and that they need to find it, they said if problem can't be seen they can't fix it. I talk with the service manager and then called Nissan and was basically told the same thing. The service manager said to drive the vehicle and if the problem happens again they can try to solve at that time. Also was told that my foot could have been on the brake and gas pedal at the same time, told him that would have been impossible because both of my feet where pressing the brake pedal to the floor board to stop the truck.
