Why Does "Slip" Flash Randomly On My Dash Board When Accelerating On The Highway by jodeci(m): 5:08pm On Sep 17, 2016
This started since yesterday on my 2007 Nissan Pathy.

The "Slip" light flashes randomly and each time it does i loose acceleration and no matter how hard i step on the pedal,the car does not accelerate.

As soon as the slip light goes off it picks up acceleration again.It doesnt last for more than a minute before it goes off on its own.

If i switch off the VDC the issue stops.But I can't drive for long with VDC off.

No check engine light is ON.

Pls any idea on what to check?

Why not safe your self a heart attack by running a comprehensive scan on the car and that would reveal what is going on. If you are in lagos and you need to solve the problem call 08156087872 or 08165520837

Like i stated earlier,there is no code.There is also no fault dispay.

The slip only blinks intermittently when i step on the pedal and goes off on ita own.

There are codes, but you searching in the wrong places. Now the present issue you having is, 1 or more wheels is/are not turning in sync with the rest, so the cars computer feels car is loosing control and decides to cut power so you can gain a little traction. The issues are centered around failing wheel speed sensors. With the rains every where it is not uncommon.

If you in lagos bring it for a free scan.

I no longer fix nissan from the usa so I cannot help you with a fix.

If your mechanic has a professional scan tool let him run a scan on your abs or better still use actual values to detect the wheel speed sensor that is malfunctioning
