#228 of 270 Re: 2004 Pathfinder power window problem [ulmp]
Mar 04, 2011 (9:02 am)
I have a 2009 Pathfinder and it has started to do the same thing. At first my husband insisted that I must have hit the lock on the remote from inside the house. However, if I had done that - the horn would have blown and we would have noticed the LOUD noise coming from the garage. Several times I have come out to find the doors locked. A few weeks ago I was getting out of the car and realized I had forgotten something, so I leaned back in when all of a sudden the doors locked and the two front windows went partially down.....the key was not in the ignition and nothing was near the window/door lock buttons. My remote doesn't have any connection to the windows. Today, I left my car as normal, unlocked and when I returned the front windows were down and the doors were locked. I too am thinking this car is haunted. My last Nissan - a Quest- the doors would lock and unlock randomly as I was driving. What is going on? Please help.

In my 2003 manual about the remote, if you press and hold the unlock button for 5 seconds it does lower the windows ,may be check into this and reprogram your remote. its worth a try.

I discovered that my problems with my pathfinder was just an issue with the electrical circuits.
From the bill:
"Found blown at cont fuse"
which when they replaced that fuse it fixed as far as my problems I listed above.
I also could not start the vehicle, which caused me to have it towed out to the dealer where they found the cont. fuse blown and a few others.
#232 of 270 side door latch will not release
May 20, 2011 (10:34 am)
Any suggestions on getting this door opened? Passenger side-door will not open and I cant replace the door latch unless I can get it open. The outside handle is blowing in the wind, the inside door release: no effect. Mechanical lock/unlock has no effect. Electric lock/unlock has no effect.
All other door latches and locks behave normally (mechanical and electric). 1998 Pathfinder

I found the problem. The outside door latch had rusted and frozen in an intermediate position, blocking efforts to release door latch.
To get the door to open: I took an "L" shaped skinny rod and was able to push it down thru a square hole along the bottom of the fixed portion of the side window inside the car. I was able to manually bear down on this L shaped rod and push down the release on the latch mechanism to open the door. I got lucky.
I took out the outside door pull and sprayed it and worked it with 10w-40. It seemed to work out okay. Just FYI: If you remove the outside door pull, the connecting metal rod will come out with it. You will not be able to reinstall it into the catch mechanism, below, unless you remove the door panel and guide it from inside the door.
#234 of 270 1997 Nissan Pathfinder LE
Sep 17, 2011 (4:01 pm)
I have a couple of issues that I need some help on:
1. occasionally, when you press the brake pedal, the headlights, dash lights etc do dim.
2. Ocasionally, when you initially turn on the head lights, all gauges on the dash light up and then go out.
I have replaced the altenator and battery but with the same results as mentioned above
Also, I have had to pull out the radio fuse to prevent the battery from being drained.
Does anyone know or can anyone help me with these issues?

I had mine checked when I blew one of my in-line fuse between my starter and battery. I found out that I had a few other blown in-line fuses. Have your vehicle checked by a dealership... mine cost me $50.00 to find it and fix the two or three that were blown.

You checked all the inline and regular.. I dont know how the 1997 was but my 2001 has a bunch of in-liners that were causing me some crazy ones.
