Hi. I'm Daniel, I'll be the mechanic assisting you today. I'm sorry to hear about the problems you have with your Nissan. Let's see if we can figure this out and get you back on the road quickly. Are you planning to repair the car yourself or looking for possible causes? What tools and equipment would you have at hand? Let me know how I can assist you as best as possible with this. Thanks.

I was told my speed sensor was triggering my engine light to come on the guy where I got my oil changed turn the sensor off And told me the sensor may be bad the engine light went off but then it popped back on after that the speed did not register in the speedometerI'm thinking I need to get the speedometer replaced but not sureNot the speedometer but the speed sensorMy break light is on tooI thought this service would refer me to a mechanic in my area��

Thanks for getting back. Sorry for the delay as I just got cut off. Yes, possible from your description that the speed sensor is faulty and needs replacement. However, clear troubleshooting (inspecting the wiring etc.) would need to be done first to make sure we are not missing anything. In addition, seems that you have a second issue with your [brake](/topics-brake-nissan/) lights. Possible that the brake light switch is acting up and causes the lights to stay on permanently. Here we also have to troubleshoot the issue correctly to prevent us from any repairs& part replacement that is not needed at this point. As you do have "electrical" malfunctions on the car, I would suggest to reach out to your local Nissan dealer. A dealer has the needed equipment and technical information (wiring diagrams etc.) to properly diagnose and repair both issues for you. Take a look here to locate the nearest dealer near you: [https://www.nissanusa.com/dealer-locator.html](https://www.nissanusa.com/dealer-locator.html) I'm sorry that you have to deal with this, I know it can be frustrating. Let me know if I can provide anything else at this point.

The brake light is staying on is the one on the DashMy brakes are working fine I had them replaced last year

You mean the brake warning light? Possible that one of the sensors that would detect that the brakes are worn failed or the brake fluid level is low.

Plenty of fluid , is it possible that the Speed sensor is affecting another sensor that's setting off the brake lightThe other light that's on is the skid lightThe swerve sensorThe light with the wiggly lines
Automotive Expert
Yes, possible that this is related. To see what exactly triggered the fault the systems need to be scanned with a capable diagnostic scanner. This will give us further direction on what causes the warning messages to appear.

It's freaking me out they all came on at the same time my [mileage](/topics-mileage-nissan/) is 34,075Ok so I need to get a Diagnostics screening

Then go from there?Ok thank you for your help!
