    Default Help! ABS..BRAKE..VDC...SLIP all are lit up



    2007 G35 Coupe. 96,000 miles

    I just installed the winter tires/wheels and all these lights turned on. Is this normal? Also i hear a rattling noise in the front wheels area similar to the "SLIP" noise that goes off everytime i first drive off after turning the car on.

    Please help guys..any advice..

    Thanks!

    Did you change tire sizes? The ratio is probably throwing everything off. Might even be low front Brake Pads or anything listed in these threads below.

    You're not supposed to mix winter tires brands/models, let alone sizes. Your front wheels are spinning faster than the rear. ECU confused.

    Should i have 225/55/17 in the front or does it have to be staggered?

    I'm not sure what the recommended sizes are for the 370z. On the G, I too have the staggered setup with summer wheels, but run 225/50/17 (same as front) on all corners for winter tires.

    This could also be low brake fluid, brake pads low..

    The lights went away when the brake fluid was topped. Now the only issue i have is there is the noise very similar to ABS noise when i let go of the gas pedal. I hear it on driver side either under the hood or front wheels. Sometimes the light come back on except the BRAKE light. Any ideas if the wheel sensor or ABS is bad?

    Pull your wheels and examine the pads/calipers/rotors. If you're unsure what to look for, take it to someone who does. Brakes are serious business.

    When was the last time the brake fluid was changed? Recommended to do so every 2 years.
