Default Car Wont Start, ABS And Brake Lights Stuck On

So after a long drive to Niagra Falls for the weekend, then a drive home, my car will no longer start. Over the trip is was working perfectly fine most of the way, but there was one hiccup while driving in town where the gauges died and a few of the lights (abs and brakes) stayed on. It went away and everything came back up 2 minutes later and the car was running fine so i figured i was good for now and would get it looked at when i get home.

So 15 mins from home i go to pull on to the highway and it happens again, no idea what my speed was so i pulled off the highway and pulled over. There was a slight electrical burning smell, none of the gauges were working, and the abs, brake, and traction control lights were on. It did still start so after 30 mins i went to see if i could move it, but it sounded like it was really struggling as soon as i put it in reverse so i just had it towed. I did also notice that there was a ton of heat coming from the pass side right above the alternator.

Since i had roadside assistance with canadian tire i got it towed to them, wait 2 hours for them to get it in and they tell me its throwing out a bunch of codes and they dont even have a lot of them in their list so i have to get it towed to nissan instead. Now ive got to wait for them to look at it to tell me whats wrong with it.


As some background i really havent had any issues with the car other than some brake issues, which were just done. It has 104,000KM, and ive had it since july when it was at 84k. There was one day a few months ago where it didnt start but a jump did start it. Other than the gauges going for 2 mins on the trip, it did act kind of funny in cruise on the way home.

Im going to see if Canadian Tire will give me the list of codes they pulled when i go to get it taken to nissan, but any ideas on what may have happened here? Up until they said its throwing out a ton of codes and wont even start i thought it was the alternator.

2005 forgot to put it in there

Since it won't start and they won let you do anything on their property it's pretty much gotta go somewhere. I might check that out once it gets there since they have to wait to look at it though

P1212 ABS/TCS Communication Line


Saw this on another forum.

The cause of this problem was a dead short in the ABS control unit. The short was between the IPDM to ABS control unit. The red/black power feed was grounding out over bumps to the ABS actuator bracket.

n general to fix a short, the wire that is causing the short (usually damaged) is replaced with new wire. You also have to replace any fuses that have blown out due to the short.

Yeah in my case it turns out it took some wiring with it, which was the majority of the labour. I was tempted to just order the part myself and put it in, good thing i didnt bother lol.
