idk exactly were they are at.. thats why I said take it to a dealer.. they can look it up and if that is the problem it will be like 50 bucks... I know that can be a lot but I got SO much for the money..
I know I have an inline fuse between the starter and the battery but I dont know were it is or any of the others.

I have an 01 LE with just over 260k. Love it but it's starting to cause me issues. The latest being that from time to time while driving if I rest my are on the driver's side door my dome light comes on as if the door is open. Not only that, but if I unlock the door then try to lock it, it won't lock. I have to take my arm off the door or pull the door towards me and lock at the same time.
At first I was only having a problem locking when the window was down but now it is to the point that I have to lean slightly on the door to lock it when leaving it in order to set the alarm. Sometimes while driving (window up or down) the dome light comes off and on. No real rhyme or reason that I can see.
Has anyone else had this problem or any ideas. Any help would be appreciated.

My 1995 Pathfinder shows a door open indicator light on the dash panel. I removed the fuse now the clock and radio have to be re-set everytime I sart up. I didn't pay attention to this and it drained the battery down this week-end. It sets off the alarm when I lock the vehicle so, what to do, I don't know....

Sounds to me like the "pin" switch in the driver's door is worn out. Easy fix and not expensive either! Locate the switch (it may have rubber cover on it, but given your Pathfinder's age probably not) Simply unscrew the phillips head screw and the whole switch will come out. Be careful not to disconnect the wire and let it fall into the frame! You should not remove it unless you are going to replace the switch. (just so you won't take a chance on dropping the wire into the frame for no reason) Get a new switch from the dealer.
Hope this helps!

you may of blown an inline fuse... have it towed to a dealer (or good general mechanic) and have them test the electrical system.
#246 of 270 Electrical Issues
Oct 15, 2011 (1:07 pm)
So, my wonderfull Pathfinder was working fine untill I had the radiator/tranny replaced (out of pocket ) Have had an electrical problem ever since. Work was done by Nissan. A week after the tranny was put in, my battery drained. Had a tech look at it, said there was a drain somewhere, possibly the BCM.
Took it back to Nissan, after about a week, they thought it was related to my aftermarket Headunit (Alpine, professionally installed) and or the alarm (Viper, professionally installed). Had those in the truck since I bought it, never any issue untill now. So they disconnected both and clamied the draw was gone. Nope.
Week later, battery dead. Put it on the charger for a day and limped it back to the Nissan stealership. After a day or two of diagnosis, they come back with the drain being related to the instrument cluster and BCM. The shop foreman supposedly says that when the tranny went, the valve body shorted out some electronics so its not directly related to the work they performed. (Oh really ?)
Fast forward 2 weeks in the shop now, with a new BCM and guage cluster. According to them, everything was looking good, truck started right up and to come down to get it. Guy calls back 10 minutes later and says they dont want to release it just yet, still having an electrical issue.
I think they screwed something up real good when they did the tranny/radiator replacement. I basically paid an hour shop time to have them disconnect my radio and alarm, had to buy two electrical components that probably weren't the cause of my problem and I still have no truck.

#247 of 270 192 Pathfinder turn off car, can't get key out of lock
Oct 17, 2011 (8:55 pm)
I was driving my 92 Pathfinder Sunday for the first time in about 3 months, all was well,and while coming home, all of a sudden all the gauges except the speedometer died. So did the horn, the headlights and the heat. Decided to go straight home, and when I turned off the car, couldn't get the key to come out of the lock. The last time the key thing happened was last Thanksgiving, and it turned out that one of the cables off the battery was cracked and was shorting out. Gratefully I had a neighbor who fixed it for me (don't live in the same place anymore). Could this be another cable or something else?
