SOURCE: Nissan 2008 Frontier Crew Cab speaker wiring.

1. Check your receiver first, and if you can see the wires in the back,

2. Test your speakers, you can use 9v battery and find out which wire for which speaker, connect them one by one.

3. If you have floating ground receiver, ( each speaker wire from the receiver has + and – wires)please be careful, you have to connect them positive to positive and negative to negative, do not let wire touch the ground, otherwise burn out your unit, but if it is a common ground unit, you can connect the + positive side of the speaker and connect all –negative wires together.

Hope this can help

Just check your fuses with a test light. Turn the key on, ground the test light to the door hinge, and touch the silver part on the back side of the fuse, on each side. There should be power to each side. If there isn't, that fuse is burnt.

Where does the vacuum for the transmission go on a 2002 frontier?

tHE VACUUM hose from transmission should be connected to the engine intake manifold. It is ussually connected right after the throtle. Thats where your "hard line", or tube, should be connected.
With the engine running, disconnect the hose from the tube, or at the transmissio, and feel if you have vacuum. the vacuum should vary with engine speed. If you have vacuum at the hose, then your problem is elsewhere.

How do you drain a 2002 Nissan Frontier radiator? Where is the drain plug?

You'll need to remove the plastic cover under the engine. The drain plug is simply a screw at the bottomside the radiator.
