Re: Where is the bulb failure module in the trunk...
I bought a keyless entry for my car on the internet, and needed to find the bulb failure module so that I could program it. All I knew was that it was on the left side of the trunk, but I didn't see anything, and was not sure if I had to remove something, of if it was part of the visible cable. Thank you very much for your help. I should be able to program it now. Thanks again.

Typical failure with the Nissan Versa,You need to find a auto electrician that is willing to go to the passenger side where the lock and unlock for the trunk module is located and and jump the wire together,This solves the problem forever, other than that the module needs to be replaced and yes you better make it a hobby it always fails
Inspect Brake Light Bulb: The number one reason for a brake light operation failure is a failed brake light bulb. To check this condition access the bulb by removing the rear cover located in the trunk or rear compartment. Some cars allow you to remove the entire brake light lens to retrieve the brake light bulb. Once the bulb has been removed inspect the bulb filament. If it looks broken or if the bulb is smoked the bulb needs to be replaced. If you have replaced the bulb but it still doesn't work remove the bulb. With the key in the "on" position have someone hold their foot on the brake pedal and use a grounded test light to carful test the terminals inside the light socket. One of the terminals should illuminate the test light. (Note: Do not touch the outer metal ring that holds the bulb in place for it is grounded and can blow the system fuse if connected to the inner terminals.) If the test light illuminates reinstall the brake light bulb. While the brake pedal is depressed test the outer metal ring that holds the bulb, if power is present the ground lead from the light socket is bad. If the outer ring does not illuminate the bulb has failed and replacement is required.
Scan BCM for Trouble Codes: Some cars are equipped with a body control module or BCM this onboard computer controls and lighting signals and can malfunction not allowing the electrical current to continue to the brake light circuits. This condition is rare but it can happen. If you have performed all of the tests above and all results are positive scan the BCM for trouble codes if no codes are present try replacing the BCM.
This is a failure of the "remote function actuation module". It is located under the rear deck next to the right rear speaker. The rear seat must be removed to access it along with removing the rear deck. It controls the trunk release, door locks, dome light, and reverse light. My remote trunk release stopped working along with the relase button on the dash along with the reverse lights failing at the same time. The module is over $150 so I would try to find a way to rewire the lights to work without the module.
Every single time I have had a failure of low beam in a headlight without failure of high beam, it has been because the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well.Also if you already replaced the fuse and bulb check the headlight dimmer control switch. Thanks for using Fixya.
A special security indicator light provides information about system operation
and self diagnostics.
The security indicator is controlled directly by
the PASSkey(R) decoder
module. If there is a PASSkey(R) failure this indicator will be grounded by
the PASSkey(R) decoder module with the ignition in RUN, BULB TEST, or START.
When the ignition switch is first placed in RUN, BULB TEST, or START the
indicator lights for about 2 seconds as a bulb check.
Some vehicles may
show additional messages if equipped with Driver Information Center or Body
The modual is the trun signal it's self. Other than that it runs through the BCM and that distributs the power to the lamps.
Do the indiactors on the dash light up at all? Or do you just hear a clicking noise?
Pull the rear bulbs out an inspect them for dark marks on the glass or abnormalities in the filament. A bulb that works but is on the verge of failing will trigger the indicator on the dash as well. Failing that, the lamp failure module is very common to fail, triggering the light as well. You can pry the box lid off and usually see burn marks on the circuit board when this happens. The lamp failure module is located behind the left rear tire area in the trunk.
the position bulbs are located in the trunk and you access them the same way you access the tail lights im not sure what the bulb does but its a 10 dollar fix. FYI when you replace the bulb the message center will still tell you that it has failed you have to take it to the dealer to have them to erase the message (i just left mine it seemed a waist of money)
