Update, We just had booster failure #4, They replaced the booster and Delta sensor. I am done with it, I no longer trust the car or the brakes. Does anybody have any experience with the Lemon Law, this is just getting ridiculous, at least 10 different trips to the dealers for brake light warnings including 4 boosters, I am fed up. Tad
bought my armada new in 2007. Had this problem first in 2009 or so...but it was intermittant (I know now because the sensor resets when the car is turned off).
West Palm Beach Nissan said they could not replicate it and had never heard of it...
It's occured two to three times since...so after it happened last weekend, I did a search.
Low and behold, lots of posts about the armada booster/delta s sensor...even you tube videos documenting the problem.
Took it into Pompano Nissan...at first said they never heard of the problem...I suggested do a simple search...they asked me about the sound...I suggested they go to you tube...
sure enough, they did their diagnostics...guess what - the booster and delta S - quoted $671. Said there is little they can do - out of warranty, 100k miles...I asked to speak with the service manager....and they also suggested I call Nissan North America...I did call the latter and have a case number...they said they'd call back tomorrow...Just doesn;t seem right that some dealerships acknowledge the problem up from and repair for free or at a significant discount...and other act like they have never heard of the issue...
We will see...
These companies/dealers are fools if they think that people can't do a quick search to determine if there is a widespread problem. Be so much better if they would just be up front about it....
Well Nissan North America is not a very responsive organization. I called them first on Tuesday 11/4. I spoke with a woman named Ella, very cordial, who assigned me a case number and said I'd have to speak with a regional specialist. She said I'd get a call back no later than the next morning.
No call back, so I phoned ella again. She said she'd send an email and leave the specialist another message...still no call back by the next day...called ella again.
she said she'd elevate to a supervisor...
I did get the name and extension finally of the regional specialist I was assigned to....I've left her many messages...she did finally call me back last Friday...I explained the situation, that it seems others have had this...the dealer initially said they've never heard of it....then after the diagnosis they acknowldeged yes, some years had this problem but not my 2007....
She asked if I could prove that I've had this problem in the past...if its documented with a dealer...I said no, I can't prove it...I can only say that I've had the problem occur at various times over the past 3 years...and its pretty clear that others on the internet have the same issue...
she said nissan does not rely on the internet because people can post anything, only on their dealers diagnostics...I said fine, I just need a resolution one way or the other....I did point out she is free to go to youtube, or any number of sites and she will see the same problem repreatedly...she again said they don't rely on the internet...
she said I'd hear back monday....she left me a message at 10:45am to call her back...I've called back 3x no response...
I told her I simply need an answer so I can get my car worked on....
