Brake system warning light

Got the car 4 days ago. About 2 out of three times we drive it we get a yellow brake warning light, along with a yellow master warning light. Lights stay on until car is turned off. Manual says take it in. Should we be in a hurry to do so? Anyone else seen something similar?

No, that's definitely abnormal. I would take it in. However, I would first double check your fluid level, just to make sure it's adequate....it could just be something as simple as that.

Brake warnings on a 4 day old car? Heck yeah, I'd get it right in. You don't want to find out it's serious by plowing into a crosswalk or something.

Re: Brake system warning light

Update - Nissan has it. Local guys are in contact with engineers on the mainland (I assume LA), who in turn are contacting engineers in Japan. Must be something new and exciting. Wondering how long this will drag out...

Day 7 - local dealer communicates with Mainland daily. Mainland waiting for Japan engineers to figure it out. Japan engineers nil heard. Dealer is opening a complaint in our name with Nissan. Just hope you're not the first to experience a problem.
