Daytime running lights not working, high beam only on one side, low beams are fine.
I have the same problem for a 2002 Nissan Pathfinder. If you figured out the problem then can you please share how this was fixed.

A 2010 Armada SE or a 2010 Pathfinder LE w/ Nav. They are similar in price. I am not towing anything but just want a truck to replace my Altima. I had a Sequoia prior to the Altima and want to get a SUV now. Any thoughts??

Mounted on the inner fender behind the battery of my 2001 Pathfinder is the daytime running light module.
I just fiddled with the connector, and presto the headlights worked. The connection failed six more times, but with a bit of fiddling, the headlights have worked for the past three months without failure.
The module is very expensive, but the connection pins do not seem reliable and so far, I have not been able to activate my clock light. I don't know if this is a related problem.
#8153 of 8189 Replacing Check Engine Light Bulb
Jan 21, 2010 (9:06 am)
My 2001 failed it's auto inspection. Was told that an emissions fail code was given by the computer.
Brought it to the dealership to discover that it's the check engine light bulb that's bad.
The friggin bulb is $37 but it's another $200 in labor(1.5 hrs) to remove the dashboard/instrument cluster to get to the bulb.
I know I'm getting ripped off but I'm thinking trying to reassemble everything isn't going to be an easy project. Am I wrong?

1.5 hours does not seem unreasonable. If you get a factory service manual for the truck, it includes detailed instructions on dashboard removal. I would not attempt it without those instructions.

let me ask you something because I have the same problem shifting from park out to drive,I can here the click of the lock release when I step on the brake so I know it s working, what do you think of squirting some WD 40 down in the shift lock release and along the shaft of the shifter to lubricate it a bit.?

#8158 of 8189 Longevity/Reliability?
Jun 08, 2011 (12:06 pm)
Hi, I've been Toyota/Honda all my life and have had 6 vehicles in a row that have gone over 300k kms (185k miles). I'm now considering a used 2008-10 PF and am wanting to know what longevity and reliability are like for PFs in general, please. Are there many of you that have driven them up over 300k kms without much hassle or do they start to break down at some point?

Not many '08+ with that kind of miles....I've seen some problems with the '05-'07 but some of that was supposed to be updated for '08 model. Have you owned a late model Honda for 185k miles? Honda has dipped IMHO and our '05 Odyssey had it's fair share of issues in 100k miles...and many of those problems continued right through the newer models. They're still decent vehicles...but not like the old ones where they didn't have much to break...and didn't.
I'm very pleased with my '08 Pathfinder over 50k miles. Has a few weird things it does...but nothing really to care much about. Goes hard, tows good, decent mpg, nice features. If Honda made something decent in this class I'd give it a look...but 4Runner was only other option for me and the PF won. I might keep it to 185k...who knows. If I like something I won't mind putting money into it either. So buy what you like...and hope for the best!
