Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) warning indicator
When the parking brake is released and the brake fluid level is sufficient, if both the brake warning light and the ABS warning light illuminate, it may indicate the ABS is not functioning properly. Have the brake system checked and, if necessary, repaired. It is recommended that you visit a NISSAN dealer for this service. Avoid high-speed driving and abrupt braking. For additional information, refer to "Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) warning light" in this section.
Charge warning light
If this light comes on while the engine is running, it may indicate the charging system is not functioning properly. Turn the engine off and check the generator belt. If the belt is loose, broken, missing, or if the light remains on, have the system checked. It is recommended that you visit a NISSAN dealer for this service.
- Do not ground electrical accessories directly to the battery terminal. Doing so will bypass the variable control system and the vehicle battery may not charge completely. For additional information, refer to "Variable voltage control system" in the "Do-it-yourself" section of this manual.
- Do not continue driving if the generator belt is loose, broken or missing.
Engine oil pressure warning light
This light warns of low engine oil pressure. If the light flickers or comes on during normal driving, pull off the road in a safe area, stop the engine immediately and call a NISSAN dealer or other authorized repair shop.
The engine oil pressure warning light is not designed to indicate a low oil level. Use the dipstick to check the oil level. For additional information, refer to "Engine oil" in the "Do-ityourself" section of this manual.
Running the engine with the engine oil pressure warning light on could cause serious damage to the engine almost immediately.
Such damage is not covered by warranty. Turn off the engine as soon as it is safe to do so.
Forward Emergency Braking (FEB) system warning light (if so equipped)
This light comes on when the ignition switch is place in the ON position. It turns off after the engine is started.
This light illuminates when the Forward Emergency Braking system is set to OFF on the meter display.
If the light illuminates when the Forward Emergency Braking system is on, it may indicate that the system is unavailable. For additional information, refer to "Forward Emergency Braking (FEB)" in the "Starting and driving" section of this manual.
Low tire pressure warning light
Your vehicle is equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that monitors the tire pressure of all tires except the spare.
The low tire pressure warning light warns of low tire pressure or indicates that the TPMS is not functioning properly.
After the ignition switch is placed in the ON position, this light illuminates for about 1 second and turns off.
