Went to start my vehicle and everything but the engine would start. Tried for several minutes, locked, unlocked car then left it alone for 5 minutes and it finally started. Then, less than a week later, while i was driving, the bci malfunction warning and a bunch of other lights came on and car slowed down significantly. Had to pull over, look up this warning and follow directions others who had this same issue did. I turned vehicle off, waited a minut and turned it back on. Warning cleares. The next morning my car wouldn't start. Had to swap cars with husband so i could get to work. This morning i tried to start it again and it wouldn't start. I've now been waiting 3 hrs for a tow truck to get vehicle. Vehicle has less than 40k miles and is a 2017 model.

While driving car will start acting weird as though i? M have a little difficulty accelerating. Then a light will come on that looks like a car with a windy road. Then after a minute or two a ton of other lights will come on and an alert of bci malfunction will appear. Tried to google to see what other people have done to resolve and some have said that they have to pull over because the car has actually shit off on its own. So, i always try to pull over and turn the car off and back on. Sometimes the car will not turn back on and it will leave me stranded. I also have been in park when the alert came on and it would not allow me to shift into drive, again leaving me stranded.

We have almost had a couple of accidents due to brakes automatically engaging. First we were backing out of driveway with nothing around but the vehicle implied brakes in the middle of the road. Luckily the vehicle that came barreling down our road slowed down until the vehicle finally let the brake off. Then 4 more times when driving applying brakes randomly! This is not safe. Luckily, we were not on the highway. Brakes continue to apply randomly without the safety surround sensors activated! Vehicle is at dealer today!

7/25/2020 Nissan Armada PLATINUM RESERVE - WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE CANYON, I HAD THE BRAKES START APPLYING THEMSELVES THEN ALL THE LIGHTS ON THE DASH CAME ON WITH A MESSAGE "BCI MALFUNCTION." WE WERE ABLE TO GET PULLED OVER SAFELY AND TURN THE CAR OFF. WE THEN RESTARTED THE CAR AND THE LIGHT CAME ON AGAIN, SO WE REPEATED THE STEPS AND THE LIGHT WENT OFF. AT OUR NEXT STOP, THE CAR WOULD NOT START NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES WE TRIED FROM THE NORMAL PUSH BUTTON START. WE WERE FINALLY ABLE TO GET IT START BY USING REMOTE START ON THE KEY FOB. THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN THAT IS AN ONGOING ISSUE WITH NISSAN ARMADAS AND INFINITY QX MODELS, BASED ON MULTIPLE FORUMS ONLINE. THIS SHOULD BE ADDRESSED IMMEDIATELY BEFORE SOMEONE GET SEVERELY INJURED OR EVEN KILLED. 60K VEHICLE WITH 40K MILES ON IT.

WHILE DRIVING AT RATE OF 45 MILES PER HOUR IN THE CITY OF OXNARD, CA IN MY 2017 Nissan Armada SL, THE CAR STARTED TO IMMEDIATELY SLOW DOWN TO A SPEED OF 5 MILES PER HOUR, WHICH ALMOST CAUSED AN ACCIDENT. THE ANTISKID AND 4X4 LIGHTS AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON, BUT THE CAR COULD NOT ACCELERATE. I HAD TO PULL OVER TO ALLOW TRAFFIC TO CONTINUE. AFTER WAITING FOR SEVERAL MINUTES WITH THE CAR OFF I RESTARTED THE CAR AND THEN DROVE AS NORMAL. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO GET LOOKED AT, BUT THE TECHNICIAN COULDN'T DETERMINE THE CAUSE USING DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT. THE CAR CONTINUES TO DRIVE NORMAL, BUT THEN STALLS AND THE SAME ISSUE ARISES.

Truck will not start after several attempts. Have had battery replaced in september due to the same problem. Have had the brake switched replaced due to dealership stating that they couldn't find a problem but replaced switch anyway (longview,tx). I took vehicle back to original dealership on today, clay cooley of dallas,tx and they provided me with a two page list of codes and asked has the vehicle ever been in a wreck. I told them not to my knowledge unless it happened before i purchased it from their lot. They stated that they couldn't make a diagnosis and this time and sent me back home with a vehicle that keeps me stranded and having to boost off.

On 5 separate occasions 2 on the same trip, whn traveling down interstate vehicle will not pull, like its stuck in a gear and will not shift. Happens around 80 mph. Creating a dangerous situation when vehicle will not speed up and slows down from 80 mph to 65 and will not gain any speed, this has almost caused a wreck 3 times all on the interstate. This vehicle has been to dealer 3 times for same issue, 1st time nothing found per them, second time replaced transmission valve body, 3rd time replaced transmission. Still not repaired

Vehicle suddenly would not start on 12/21/2019, thus leaving my family and i stranded in a brand new vehicle. (reported to nissan roadside assistance) bci malfunction warning (see photo) and the vehicle began to automatically apply the brake as i was driving and i could not override it. I feel this is a safety issue, as i had no control over the vehicle whatsoever. Vehicles automatic emergency braking system applies the brakes while in motion and when i do not intend for the brakes to be applied, causing severe anxiety and fear of driving my brand new $60k vehicle
