Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: Active engine brake

The Active Engine Brake function adds subtle deceleration by controlling CVT gear ratio, depending on the cornering condition calculated from driver's steering input and plural sensors.

This benefit is for easier traceability and less workload of adjusting speed with braking at corners.

The Active Engine Brake also enhances braking feel by adding subtle deceleration with CVT gear ratio control according to driver's brake pedal operation.

The Active Engine Brake can be set to ON (enabled) or OFF (disabled) through the vehicle information display "Settings" page. For additional information, refer to "Vehicle information display" in the "Instruments and controls" section of this manual.

If the Integrated Dynamics-control Module warning message appears in the vehicle information display, it may indicate that the Active Engine Brake is not functioning properly. Have the system checked as soon as possible. It is recommended that you visit a NISSAN dealer for this service.

WARNING

The Active Engine Brake may not be effective depending on driving conditions. Always drive carefully and attentively.

When the Active Engine Brake is operating, the needle of the tachometer will rise up and you may hear an engine noise. This is normal and indicates that the active engine brake is operating properly.
