I can understand and appreciate that you are not terribly mechanically inclined, but the answer you are looking for is contained in those threads.
Take the time to read those master cylinder threads....all of them.
I can't tell if you're being a dick, or you were just trying to get across that there was more to be explained that could be answered with a simple response. Anywho, thanks, maybe?
It does seem to be exhibiting the same symptoms as a lot of the master cylinder people were having. If I accelerate like I would getting onto a highway, the light comes on. It goes off if I slow down. I'm going to pick up some brake fluid on my way home from work to put it in and keep a watchful eye on it to see if it goes down at all. If I am obviously losing break fluid, I think I'm going to have to make an appointment. Can a regular mechanic diagnose and fix this, or do I have to bring it to Nissan? I'd prefer not to pay the dealership premium on something that could be fixed cheaper elsewhere.
What would be really nice is if the NHTSA forced Nissan to issue a recall on this soon so I don't have to pay for it. Seems to me if they've already had to recall Sentras for this, it wouldn't be a far stretch to assume the Altimas are going to be recalled as well.
