The rear window defroster can be tested by checking for power out of the fuse box to the switch which operates a relay usually 4 pin 2 pins are the controlling side and the other 2 are battery power and the window element wire. Some switches have a led light in them that shows power is completed thru the switch . With a volt meter test wires at rear window some times if to many breaks in the grid stops the system from working. the cruise control has a servo with it's own throttle cable check for broken cable and check for engine vacuum to servo. then test switches on steering column with a ohm meter for proper continuity and test brake light switch.

What does the code no DTC detected mean on a 2001 Nissan pathfinder

DTC P1441 means there were no scan results. There may be some troubles that can't be detected but the fact that your Nissan is running fine seems at odds with that long list of issues cobbled together by the repair shop.

How to replace rear door window on 93 pathfinder

If you can see the edge of the glass (not stuck inside a rubber mould) then the glass will be glued to the body. The quickest and easiest way for you to get a water proof job without the mess is to have a windscreen shop fit it for you. Believe me you do not want the hassle.

I just bought a 93 nissan pathfinder xe-v6 and it needs a little work the power locks dont lock or unlock, i dont know what bulbs to put in the by the rear view, the window washer for the rear window works...

I have a 1994 Nissan Pathfinder too and it does the same problem when you push the locks down it sounds like a relay in the back of the Vehicle and when the weather is cold they work fine, finally found that the lock of the hatch is bad and this is causing the problem all the locks should to be closed in order to automatically lock or unlock, just clean it up and put oil, it worked for me.

93 pathfinder all 4 windows won't go up or down.

Guessing they're power windows. The driver side control unit for your windows is the master. If one of the other 3 windows fails individualy, the rest should work. If you lose the driver side, everything fails. Chances are water/snow/debris got between the crack of your window and the door and corroded something. Quickfix, get an airline and blow it down between the glass and door. Debris will be dislodge. If that doesn't work you need to take the paneling off on the inside of your door.
There'll be a dozen or so plastic pop tabs you can gently free with a flathead. There'll be screws or hex headed fasteners in the door handle, don't forget them. Unclasp any pigtails you see as the paneling come off. Check for continuity and obvious defects on the control unit. Replace as necessary.

Cruse control

check the fuse for the cruise control (CC). Secondly, use a meter to make sure the switch is good underneath the brake lever. There are typically two switches underneat the arm; one controls your brake lights and the other controls the on/off [cancel] feature of the CC.
