Head to the deal. You are lucky that your lights stay on. Mine are completely random. Did a 600 mile trip for work this week and no lights. I hit a bump and they flicker.

this makes me paranoid about my xterra. does anyone know if nissan is trying to find the source of this problem?

the problem isn't the wiring bundle getting cut in the steering assembly?

It is the Diff or ABS controller. No worries as it doesn't affect the handling of your X and won't render it unless.

In my case, the ABS was disabled so I would say it's a pretty big safety issue. I haven't driven a car/truck w/o ABS in 12 years. I drove around for a bit where it was safe so I could practice some emergency stopping exercises. Soundy dorky I know, but when it's wet out and you are used to ABS, it makes a big difference.

Maybe, but if the light comes on and stays on then go to a dealer. I cannot remember the last time that I actually heard the ABS kick in. Maybe I drive like a 90 year old women.

We did take it to the dealer and they blew us off for 2 weeks and said it was safe to drive until the part came in. We bitched enough that they gave us a loaner while they kept the truck for another 2 weeks to fix. They replaced the entire rear end.
