Question about Nissan Pickup

I have a 1990 Nissan pickup. the wiring harness

I have a 1990 Nissan pickup. the wiring harness has a short in it somewhere. You will have to wiggle the wires to get it to start. It will start for for a few months and then the short will return and then have to wiggle again. Any ideas how to locate the short or buying a new wiring harness?
Thanks
Jay

Likely it's not a short, or you would have other electrical issues. since you already have found the location, narrow down the search by unplugging and carefully checking all connections looking for a corroded pin etc. in the vicinity of the part of the harness you are moving.

Po463 po183 nissan versa


code p 0183 refers to fuel temperature sensor A --high input===causes --wiring short to positive ---fuel temp sensor--ECM
code p 0463 refers to fuel tank level sensor --high input===causes --wiring short to positive fuel tan level sensor ---ECM
if the temp sender and the fuel level sensor ( both located in the same fitting in the tank)are in the same wiring harness then there may be a connection as the wiring short to positive is common
check for the harness rubbed through somewhere causing the problem or an after market screw screwed into the harness some where

I have a 1990 toyota pick up and the efi fuse pops everytime you try to start the truck any ideas


the wiring harness under the truck on the d side may be laying on the exhaust and it goes to the o2
sensor and also if it is a 4 cylinder it could be the harness laying across the fuel rail shorting to ground on the rail.

Have a 1990 Pontiac Sunbird.Charging problem,replaced alternator and battery still same problem.Is there a fuseable like wire coming off of the alternator harness somewhere I need to look at.


If the old alternator had a shorted diode, it would have blown the fuseable link which is located somewhere between the alternator +12 volt terminal and the starter solenoid--it should be hanging out of the wiring harness and look burned if open. Be sure to replace it with the correct part and use crimped '****' splices to reconnect. The battery should show over 13.5 volts when the alternator is providing charge. Hope this helps!

Marker lights do not work. 1994 nissan pickup SE


I would start by checking all the fuses, then check the headlight switch,test it for power as you did the tail light, then check the wiring coming out of the cab down the frame to the rear of bed check for a short but if all fuses are good then will not be a short, may be a bad switch and the most important is the bulbs, make sure they are good.

1990 Nissan 4X4 pickup? The blower motor, gas&temp gauge, 4wd indicator light all stopped working at the sametime. Happened a time or to and came back now it has not worked in days. I have exterior...


Trace your wires from your heater. Check your fuses also, the heater wire likely shorted into the ground for the gauges or vice-versa. You have to have some wires rubbing together under the dash somewhere.

Burning up my fuseable link


YES U HAVE WHAT WE CALL A "DEAD SHORT TO GROUND" CHECK THE ENGINE WIRING HARNESS FOR WORN PLACES AND BARE WIRES, ALSO LOOK AT THE EXHAUST SYSTEM AND MAKE SURE NO WIRES ARE LYING AGAINST IT AND BURNED THROUGH TO SHORT OUT, GO UNDER THE TRUCK AND LOOK THERE AS WELL, THIS PROBLEM WILL BE THE ENGINE HARNESS SOMEWHERE, PAY PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO ANYWHERE THE WIRING RUNS CLOSE TO METAL ENGINE COMPONENTS. THERE IS ALSO A POSSIBILITY THE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP IS SHORTED, BUT THIS IS MUCH LESS LIKELY.
