We've been having a steady VDC light occasionally come on and most recently the "Brake" light on startup that goes out the first time you mash the brakes on our 2016 Nissan Quest SV with about 44K miles on it. We bought it "Certified Used" from a Nissan dealer in April 2017 with 32300mi on it. The brake fluid reservoir is approaching the "add" line, but it's pretty close to between add and full, a tad closer to "add". I pulled a front and rear wheel to check the brakes and the pads are pretty well worn, but could probably go another 10K miles+. The rear caliper pistons are extended a fair amount. The rotors look like new yet. Gotta love "certified used" when within 10K miles of purchase, you need 2 new tires and within under 12K miles, new brakes. Could these lights be related to the amount of pad wear and brake fluid level? I've not experienced this with any of my other vehicles in the past. Just wondering if this is a Nissan thing? It's been a while since I've owned one. The last Nissans we owned were back around 2001 (2 different Sentras). Thanks.
