Your Altima has a traction control system that’s responsible for providing assistance during certain types of driving. The Slip indicator light should blink at certain times. If the vehicle stability control system is operating (actively assisting with handling), you’ll see the Slip indicator light blink. This should also be taken as a warning that the road is slick, and you should drive with caution. The light looks like a car with

slip marks behind it.
