#142 of 270 Pathfinder Flattens Battery...
May 31, 2009 (4:38 pm)
Yikes, from what I've seen here, there are a lot of problems with Pathfinders.
I've a 1999 model on which the battery will go dead if not driven for a day or so. What circuits/systems connected full-time to the battery might be causing this?
I've done a resistance test on the alternator output terminal, reading 640 ohms one direction, nothing the other direction [flipping the ohmmeter leads]. This tells me that the diodes in the alternator should be okay.
A caveat is that the vehicle is a wreck rebuild, with the passenger side and rear having been involved. Also, the "room lights" [Nissan's parlance] would always stay on unless turned off at the lamp itself. **BUT**...I removed the Room Lamp fuse, to no effect.
I'm recharging the battery as of this post, and will do a current-draw test, and then begin pulling fuses to see if the current so noted, decreases.
Any help is certainly appreciated.

Can you tell whether the motor that operates the windows is engaging? If not, the motor may be defective or you've blown a fuse.

#147 of 270 2001 Pathfinder Instrument Panel Lights Failure
Jul 21, 2009 (7:22 pm)
I’ve been looking for an answer to this problem for over a year. From the various posts across the internet, I see that this is not uncommon, but have never seen an actual answer to resolve the problem….
The ISSUE, the dash/instrument panel lights will intermittently turn off on one side of the dash or the other, or both (Tach, etc. OR Speed, etc., or both), other lights in the car are unaffected. They will resume functioning in an arbitrary manner, with no repair. Turning lights ON or OFF, turning the car ON or OFF, hitting bumps, temperature, duration of drive time, weather, or towing a trailer seem to be unrelated - having no effect on precipitating or resolving the light failure. Lights may remain OFF for seconds, or minutes, or days at a time (making night-time driving problematic when the speedometer is out.) The instruments themselves work fine, the only problem is the lighting.
ANYBODY have a clue ???

#149 of 270 93 Pathfinder faulty coil???

Nissan Pathfinder SE 6cyl Mannual trans 4WD
111,000 miles fully overhauled a year ago Recently I´ve been experiencing car trouble (stalling) only that it has gotten steadily worse and the last time it died on me and it didn´t start untill it had cooled off for about 30 minutes.............when coils short out how does one go about testing it?
It really is mind boggling otherwise it was running great!!!

you need a good volt meter , then you check the resistance across the coil tower that goes into the spark plug and also across the positive and neg pins or wire taps on the sides of the coil, as far as how much resistance you need to ask some one from nissan or get a spec sheet on the coils
#151 of 270 93 Pathfinder faulty coil???

Since I happened to have a spare coil I switched them and test drove it, well, the flaw reappeared; then I went on and switched the ignition control module, the same thing happened since plugs and wires are brand new I think I will focus on the ignition relay.........
