Nissan Versa - Car stopped at red light - suddenly freezes up, lights come on, can't accelerate.


Asked by Oct 20, 2014 at 08:59 PM about the 2009 Nissan Versa SL Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I drive a 2009 Nissan Versa. Today, I was stopped at a red light. My car froze up, and I
could not accelerate when the light turned green, even after putting it in park and then
back to drive. 4 lights came on simultaneously - the Service Engine Soon, battery,
BRAKE, PS, and the one that looks like an oil can. I got an oil change last week and they
told me my break fluid was getting low, but I could wait longer on getting it changed. They
refilled the coolant, too. Do you think it will be safe to drive for a few days, or should I
take off work to bring it in?

Something is going on with it,have you checked to make sure it has oil,and all the belt,s are still intact,this all so could be sign of bad alternator,or battery,i think i would have it checked,it might break down on you,better safe then sorry as they say, Good luck with it.


Bring it in. It's important to know what is going on. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Hello radredhead, did you ever bring it in to see what was wrong with it? I have the same problem with my 2012 1.6 4 door versa. Let me know please!
