The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Xterra. The contact stated that while driving at 55 mph, an unusual sound emitted from the front end of the vehicle as the ABS warning indicator illuminated. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic, who diagnosed that the front bearing for driver and passenger wheels needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was unknown.

My wife refueled her vehicle and the "service engine soon" light came on. The gas gauge then went from full to zero and low fuel light came on. Soon after, the tmps sensor also went out. I thought it might be the gas cap being lose, but it wasn't. the gas gauge will fluctuate between empty and full. This is my wife's car and it is a hazard to be driven on the road, especially if she runs out of gas.

The TPMS warning flashes then stays on.... all codes were read and addressed by Nissan dealership and all sensors were confirmed in working order. Light gone after codes were cleared but returned within the hour while driving. Is it a sensor or the computer going bad in this area? 2007 Nissan Xterra.
