Hi i am very new to the forums! I currently have owned my 06 LE pathfinder for almost 4 years now, just turned 171,000 miles. I have read similar posts, but not the same codes have been throw. Maybe 2 months ago my wife was driving when the VDC, ABS, SLIP lights came on. The little illuminated indicator that shows it in 2wd or 4wd is not working either. It does not show anything it is just a blank screen. I took it into a local Nissan dealership and they said "no communication between switches and ABS system. found codes C1143. They said they reset the steering angle sensor. They recommend replacing ABS Module". Quoted me $2206.10..................... I am a father of two, with the newest baby only 4 weeks old. Its the family rig and winter is approaching and would like 4wd and traction control. So long story short, does that sound correct about replacing the ABS control module? A lot of other posts seemed to have other problems besides replacing the control module. Any info would be much appreciated!

Thanks,
Clinton

It's hard to either agree with or dispute the dealer's diagnostics from a forum level as they've had the opportunity to actually work on the vehicle where we haven't. Could it be the ABS module? Sure, it's very possible. Could it be something else, instead? Possibly, but hopefully the dealer tech is knowledgeable and correctly identified the problem. I do know that the ABS actuator assembly, which comes with the ABS controller, can be found used anywhere from $75-$150. That's a whole lot cheaper than a new unit. You can look at your ABS actuator and pull the part number off of it. Try Car-part.com or Ebay if you don't find a local auto salvage yard that has it. Then it's just a matter of paying a shop for the labor and brake fluid to install it.

Thank you for the info SMJ, I researched some on ebay and found some that say they fit Nissan Pathfinder 05-09. Its a different part number then the one i found on the unit in my rig. I was just curious if they were universal for those years, or if i should keep looking for the exact part number. something like that is what i have found.

thank you again,
