Engine Performance problem
1997 Infiniti Q45 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles

When I'm driving the Slip light comes on and I start to loose accelaration. If I pump gas peddle it comes back sometimes.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hi lion1976,

Thank you for the donation.

When a problem occurs in the ABS, the SLIP indicator on the instrument panel will illuminate. Begin self-diagnostic mode by grounding the self -diagnostic check terminal located on the Data Link Connector (DLC). The malfunction will be indicated by SLIP indicator flashing 2 digit codes.


Self-Diagnostic Procedure (SLIP Indicator)

1. Drive vehicle at speed greater than 20 MPH for at least one minute. Turn ignition off. Locate Data Link Connector (DLC) near left lower side of instrument panel. Connect a jumper wire between ground and terminal No. 4 at DLC.

2. Turn ignition on. Ensure brake pedal is not depressed. After 3 seconds, SLIP indicator light begins to flash ABS/TCS Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs). Use ABS/TCS DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE (DTC) IDENTIFICATION table to determine malfunction associated with DTC, and perform appropriate DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURE. If only DTC 12 (system functioning properly) is set, and ABS is not functioning properly, diagnose system by symptom.

NOTE: DTCs will stop flashing after 5 minutes. To reactivate code display, turn ignition off and back to on.

3. After completing repairs, erase DTCs. Repeat steps 1) and 2) to ensure codes have been cleared. Disconnect jumper wire from DLC connector. SLIP indicator light, TCS OFF and ABS warning indicator should deactivate after driving vehicle at speeds greater than 20 MPH for at least one minute. After confirming proper warning light operation, test ABS in safe area.

Get the code and we shall continue from there.
