So we've had an issue with the DVC/Slip on our 2005 Pathfinder a year ago (losing all power to the wheels, randomly). Got it fixed, thankfully under warranty.
A few weeks ago, the same symptoms came up. Took it to the dealer and this time they said was due to a corroded battery cable that was causing a weak battery and sending wrong signals. Supposedly got it fixed, Thursday.
Well, today, the day after picking it up from the dealer, lost all power to the wheels. I mean all. Usually I could shut the engine off and it would be fine till the next incident, but now I was dead in the water. Luckily, I remembered that if I turned the DVC off, I could limp home.
Called the dealer and will take the car in tomorrow for another try. Oh, and the cruise control all of a sudden stopped working.
Just further proof that the most likely time your vehicle will break down is right after you have it fixed. Guess will be taking Bubba up to Tahoe on Thu, instead
