First off where are you from? If you have an Australian Based Version then there is a portion of the control unit that can short and illuminate the vehicle brake lights. If this is a US version then I would first disconnect the red wire on the brake control unit. If the lights stay on, I would suspect faulty brake switch. If they turn off, then something is shorted in the brake control unit. thanks paul

I am trying to find out the towing capacity of a 2009 turbo diesel Nissan patrol. I have been told that being an auto reduces this.

best place to ask are towbar fitting shops
they have to certify that the modification and stamp the towing capacity
call any nissan service center and they will know
read it in your user manual
it has nothing to do with the transmission but a lot to do with whether the towed vehicle has electric brakes , over ride brakes or no brakes

How to adjustrear drum brake 2009 nissan patrol

drum brakes can be adjusted through a slot at the rear of the backing plate normally at the top. Use a flat bladed screw driver or a special tool used top adjust drum brakes. The secret to adjusting drum brakes is to adjust up till the shoes touch the drum and then hit the backing plate several times with a hammer . This allows the shoes to move into the new position and equalise out. Repeat the process until you get an even contact noise when turning the wheel. Pumping the brakes at intervals while adjusting also helps centralise the shoes into position

Tekonsha 9055

Hi Heather, I'm glad to help!
Being in the automotive field for over 40 years I have run across some pretty crazy stuff that causes the ABS light to come on go. I one time I found an axle bent and was causing the sensor not to pick up the signal at times. Once on the rear of a car I found the axle nut loose so it was causing the axle to move in and out so the sensor would not send the signal at times. Also other things like frayed wiring can cause this issue because when you turn a corner the frayed wiring falls over and grounds out on something and kills the signal going to the ABS Module. Other times I have found more than others connector issues, where the terminals in the connector are spread to much and looses the signal. Heather, things like this is what you need to look for with your ABS issue. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Heather.

Brake Light Switch- I am trying to locate the switch, and the wire which comes out of the switch (that goes to the brake lights I presume). I am trying to install a Tekonsha P3 electric brake controller,...

Below are a couple pictures of the switch. There are 2 connectors on it--one with 2 wires and one with 4 wires. The wire you want is the white wire from the 2-wire connector. This is the switched power. It goes to a connector (shown) and up through the steering column to the directional switch, as the same bulb filaments that burn the brakes are used for the turn signals. After going thru the directional switch, green and yellow wires come down thru the same connector shown and lead to the right and left brake/signal lights. The orange wire goes to the fuse. see picture below. Does this help?

I need to wire an electric brake controller in my truck

you can either wire it straight or gm makes a connector that plugs into the drivers side floor . theres a box down there that has a cover over it and the gm connector plugs straight to it. but be careful because i have seen several times were gm wired it wrong the stop light plug is in the wrong spot.take a test light to ground touch each connector while pressing and releasing brake pedal the one that lights the light, is your stop light look on there connector and check to see if that plug is going to the red wire if not move the red wire to that spot. as for wiring it you have to do it this way. black wire goes to constent hot, white wire goes to constent ground , blue wire goes back to your trailer plug for your electric brake, and red wire as you know by now goes to the stop light.

Our truck has an Accupower Digitrac II electric brake controller

When I googled again, I found a reference which included a manufacturer's name - Tekonsha.
I then googled Tekonsha and found, and it led me to a technical support section in downloadable Adobe format with instructions for all of their brands of electric brake controllers. The instructions are very thorough and include installation, operation and troubleshooting.
