there is no need to go any where near the fuse box
trailer shops and tow bar fitting shops sell a piggy back harness where you pull the plug of the back of a tail light and the piggy back connect plugs in with the car harness plugging into the back of that piggy back plug
run the wires out to the trailer connection and connect as per the wiring numbers instruction
quick easy and for most part fool proof
Common to blow that fuse if you have a trailer light hookup and it gets wet and/or shorts out on a trailer with bad wiring. It is in the fuse box under the hood. Box will have a rectangular black plastic cover marked FUSES. On the underside of the box is a diagram as to which fuse governs which wiring circut. Usually a 10 amp fuse for that one you blew.
I actually know the solution. I just went through it. It's a very long story, and I cannot tell you how mad I am at the Nissan Dealership in Grand Junction, Colorado, for not knowing the answer to this question right away. It has cost me over $500 and 500 miles of driving to learn the location of this tiny fuse holder. Look straight up above the brake pedal and accelerator pedal (under the dashboard) and see a wiring harness that plugs into the "Body control module" above the steering column. You should see two mini fuse holders sticking out of this harness. They are whitish in color, like a gallon milk bottle. One is for the right trailer turn signal, and one is for the left.
This is the only year Nissan Frontier where this is true (as far as I know) it is the result of a recall on that year where they installed this harness. If your truck went in for the recall, then you will have the same harness located in the same place. Good luck, Bob Walker, Moab, Utah
I had the sam problem with my '02 escape when I installed the hitch. I changed the turn signal relay under the dashboard on the drivers side of the dash with one from an escape that had a tow package(one was blue and the other was yellow...). worked fine for me after that. Don't know if it changed later...
