    CEL, oil, & battery warning lamp all come on intermittently

    Kev2: above your post - Two stored codes: C1223 - lamp brake warning output circuit failure. C1249 - ABS outlet valve coil RR circuit short to ground. I have had owner save this info and had owner disconnect battery to reset modules. There is a slim chance that will correct the issue. If...

    2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5

    Give us the actual codes, not a description. Many parts guys give you a verbal account of the code. We need the actual code number to be helpful.

    Question about brake calipers

    That is what I was trying to say in post #5, BUT YOU STATED IT BETTER. " I experienced a similar situation recently and in my case the brake pad metal backing was just enough oversized (maybe a few thousands of an inch) and was dragging on the caliper solid housing so that it would not retract...

    Because of the normal differential action ANY slight drag on one wheel (even normal drag from brakes or axle friction or whatever) will make that wheel stop and and the other turn. So what you see could be normal or not. I experienced a similar situation recently and in my case the brake pad...
