I might buy one sensor and try plugging it in until the light goes out because surely both sensors haven't gone

Don't know. 2012 model had 2. 2015 has 1. You could try replacing one. I didn't bother as at the time I could only find the part in USA so wasn't going to risk it.

Well it's done at last the wife managed to get one of the plugs off so i plugged the new sensor in without unscrewing the old one and the noise stopped on startup and the lights went out, so i popped to my local garage and he fitted the sensor in 5 minutes and the wife plugged it in.
Total cost £49.50 for the sensor and £6 for a big bag of tea bags and some chocolate biscuits for the garage as he wouldn't take any money

to put a end to this you will need the brake sensors re calibrating at nissan luckily for me they did it for free as it only took 2 minutes

I also have this same problem on a 2013 SV. I get the same hum at startup and notice no extra regen with the brake pedal. I bought it to the dealership. They find the codes C1A70 brake control system and C1AA9 pressure sensor. They also tested the pressure sensor and confirm it not working. However they want to replace the ABS control module: actuator assembly for $1600 and possibly also the brake actuator assembly for $2300 (the difference isn't clear). Claiming the pressure sensor is part of the control module. But, I see one pressure sensor on the brake cylinder. Do I really need a 1000+$ part.

Hard to remember yesterday not to mention 2 years ago....

Different to the codes I had. I think I would consider another opinion given the potential cost that's at stake.

I understand but would it not be like you having an airbag module fault and front crash sensor fault compared to me having an airbag module fault and rear crash sensor fault. The cure would be different for both situations. Maybe not. Like I said I would be inclined to get a second opinion.
