Almost every day I drive it. I drive 10 miles to work and the malfunction warning will come on 9 out of 10 times driving. I have a lot of problems with my 2018 Kicks. Will not be buying another Nissan.

i've had same issue since the car had 5k miles, entire dashboard was changed and dealership even contacted manufacture for questions. To my luck when it arrives to the dealership malfunction status turns off, not enabling them to find the problem.






There is definitely an issue here. Mine is actually in the shop (has been for a few days) because the warning comes on all the time for no reason. It also displays 2 different "Malfunction" warnings and pretty much all other alerts come on as well. This includes the traction control warning, ABS, low tire pressure, and collision detection. The only way to get them to turn off is to turn off the car. As you can see in my pic (sorry for the wonky angle), temperature might also be a contributing factor. Unfortunately, this is not something I can really avoid living in the desert.

Mine is a nissan kicks 2019 sv and when the snow started my front collision came on ,my ABS ,tire inflation and anti skid I gave the car a good wash and they all went off a couple of weeks later we had another snow storm and they all came on again, every time I indicate the corresponding side impact light flashes and now I have a engine management light and the red brake light on ,what is happening is this a lemon because at the moment I am definitely thinking I will never buy another nissan ,my steering has also gotten really heavy

I have this problem.

I've already had the front sensor replaced early on after taking ownership. 50K miles, it started doing it again.

So does Malfunction See Owner's Manual necessarily only reference the front collision prevention sensor?

Yes, and I told it was dirt. The next time it happened, my car had just come out of the car wash. That time they said it was fog. It happens randomly no matter what the weather or the surface dirt that gets on the car. I know it's pretty hard to bring this up to a car dealership but ... there is dirt on roads. And I can't be a slave to keeping all of the sensor beams clean. I have given up. This car isn't going to last me two years. Luckily, my life expectancy is expected to be even shorter. This would e a win-win if I can get the timing just right but something tells me I'm gonna be walking after the Nissan craps out on me and I still have a little bit of life left.

What really sucks is no matter what's wrong with it, they always want to keep it overnight. No loaner, no offer of a ride home, they just want to keep your car overnight and if you won't agree to that they will not schedule you. So that makes it your fault that you can't get your car seen to. My crystal ball is a bit murky but the fact they make it so difficult to get warranty service indicates they are not willing to put their money where their mouth is. Besides... if they only offer 3 year warranty for a brand new car, you're f'ed to start with. They hope the warranty will expire before you have time to prove it's a lemon.

I know that certain years of the Rogue and the first year of the Kicks (2018) may have had issues with the anti-collision sensor causing the vehicle to brake. In the two days I've had my 2019 Kicks now, I've notice that my front warning went off twice, once when a car passed me kinda close, which is understandable, but the other time was when the wind and rain was blowing strong towards the front of my car. Is the sensor that sensitive that it would give off false readings like that?
Yes these cars have electrical issues

I have a 2018 Nissan Kicks. I had been having my sensor come on as unavailable when it rained or when I would take a corner. I ignored it for months but my warranty was about to be over. So, I made an appointment at Nissan and they had my car for 2 days. They replaced the sensor. Just got it back last night, so we will see if replacing it did the trick or not.

Mine is doing the same thing. What do I do?
