How do you paste a picture in the post? Anyways, I found the ground strap. You had a great description of the location. Still connected and not loose. No visible sign of rust or crystalization of the strap. Just has that slight oxidized look on the strap and the bolt/nut on the TWC flange is rusted but, the bolt on the heat shield is ok.
I don't see anything wrong with it(unless rusty bolt/nut is non-conductive). I noticed that there is a Nissan TSB for the MIL with DTC code P0160. See summary below.
Anyone know the TSB details or have fixed the problem using this TSB(cost or covered beyond 36K miles)?

Where is the rattle coming from exactly? Previous year Pathfinders had a TSB on a dashboard rattle.
I am in Houston and have used Baker Jackson South 610. The previous service managers (I think Gary Lee, now at other Baker Jackson Nissan North location) were nice but they have since changed and not as nice. It is a crapshoot now. Haven't been back recently. As always, be stubborn and persistent with dealer service depts. I do not see a published TSBs for your year model problem.
#1038 of 2771 Cargo tie down tips
Aug 30, 2004 (9:15 am)
Can some provide tips on the best way to tie down cargo to the factory roof rails? I have a 2001 PF wit the 2 side to side rails that slide front to back(not the rails that makes a square w/PF logo). What's the best way to tie down an ice chest or something like that? Do you butt the front and rear rack against the cargo? Can you just use plain rope?

Generally it's a bad idea to secure large heavy items to the roof of your SUV. Large items with high frontal surface area will create significant drag, reducing fuel efficiency and handling, and may even fly off the rack if not properly secured. Heavy items change the vehicle's center of gravity, decreasing cornering performance and handling, and increasing rollover risk.
If you must secure items to the roof rack, adjust the rails so that the load rests on the rails (instead of the roof), and if possible use at least one of the larger, raised rails to butt up one end of the item. Use rope or straps to secure the cargo. Bungee cords do not work well unless they are VERY tightly stretched. Wind resistance can often overcome a bungee cord's holding power if there's any significant elasticity remaining.

#1042 of 2771 Bose Replacement Experience & Suggestions
Sep 02, 2004 (11:02 am)
I have a 2002 SE with the Bose 6 CD in dash player. So far, whenever I have gotten the ERR 2 msg I have been able to retrieve my CD's and the player has continued to work. I expect that one day, it may go out for good. I have a few questions about replacement steroes.
1. What aftermarket systems have people used?
2. How did the replacement system look cosmetically, given the Bose system takes up a lot of space?
3. I know there are ways to keep the stereo steering wheel controls functioning with OEM attachments (Crutchfield carries them, maybe others too). Has anyone gone that route? How did it work?
Sep 02, 2004 (11:39 am)
I am getting ready to. gonna order the pac swix to keep the steering wheel controls, and gonna get the kenwood kvt-715 dvd w/sirius tuner. should be a nice upgrade! that unit is expandable and can control a nav system, and 6cd changer, as well as have a tv tuner for the ultimate road machine!
