#1 of 271 My 06 pathfinder is having electrical problems
Jun 28, 2006 (6:24 pm)
Last night while i was cleaning out the interior i had the keys in acc mode.While i was listing to the bose i looked at the gauge cluster and my rpm gauge was moving and so was the mph gauge i found that to be odd because the motors wasnt on.It stoped after about 3 seconds.About 5 minutes later the bose was changing the volume by its self.I pulled te keys out and it tolled me that the battery was dead.10 minutes later i turned the key back to acc mode.It then told me the battery was normal.About one day passed i got into it early in the morning i turned the motor off while i was at the pump and the gauge cluster stated acting up again.

#4 of 271 2002 Pathfinder electrical problems
Nov 03, 2006 (3:24 pm)
I bought this used vehicle in excellent physical shape from a dealer, but after the warranty expired I started to have electrical problems. (1) The interior dome light and trunk lights are intermittent and must be left in the off position, (2) door lights do not work (3) the security alarm horn would go off in the middle of the night when no events were happening--I had to disconnect the horn, (4) the stereo radio/cd control buttons on the steering wheel do not work. Anyone have any similar experiences and/or ideas how to fix this problem? icby

I don't know if this will help any, but I have a '94 Pathy and a while back one of my high beam headlights was out. I tried everything I knew to check, but I ended up taking it to a Nissan dealer, and it was a headlight switch.
#6 of 271 93 pathfinder dome lights stay on.
Dec 17, 2006 (8:33 am)
I have pulled every pin switch at each door away from the body to test the switches. (switch closed goes to ground).
Somewhere the light circuit is getting grounded.I have the carpet out and have pushed and pulled on ALL the harnesses but
alas the lights never went off or even flickered. Any ideas?
Anyone? Is there possibly a switch in the tailgate that I cannot find? I am very mechanically inclined, so this is buggin' me bugger!

I just bought a '95 and mine was doing the sames thing. In mine, it was the switch inthe rear hatch latch. If you open up the hatch and look up at the latch, on the left side there is a flat square black plastic "contact" that pushes back away from the gold metal piece when the door is closed. Apparently this plastic part wears out just enough to keep from moving off the metal piece leaving the dome lights on. Adjusting the latches wouldn't fix the problem, so I simply wrapped the left side of the strike plate (U-shaped metal loop at the rear floor where the door latch latches to) with about 3-4 wraps of electrical tape to make it thicker. The contact will hit that and slide away from the metal piece.

Hi. Thanks for the very useful info on how to deal with the dome light problem on my 02 Pathfinder. The other problem is that intermittently, the alarm goes off for no apparent reason--usually in the middle of the night. Even when I click it with the remote to silence it. It will do so again later. No one trying to get in or loud noises. I had to have the horn fuse disconnected. Any ideas? Any way to adjust the sensitivity of the alarm system? Best wishes for the new year. Charles

It's probably one of the dome light switches. If you had an intermittant rear hatch switch as just posted about, that would do it. You can also check the door switches for water corrosion. They're easy to remove and inspect. There is no motion detector in the stock alarm system, so noise or vibration will not set it off.
#10 of 271 Security LED keeps flashing on 95 Pathy
Jan 22, 2007 (7:09 am)
I have a 1995 XE Pathy with 145K on it. Recently had to replace the battery and alternator. Now the red LED next to the Security switch on the little console between the front seats won't stop flashing. No matter what position I set the switch it keeps flashing. I don't believe the security system works anymore but I'm concerned that the flashing LED will gradually drain the battery. Does anyone know what I can do to disable the LED? I was thinking of prying the switch plate and disconnecting a wire.
