Question about 2000 Nissan Pathfinder
I've got a 98 Nissan Pathfinder that has intermittent gauge problems. It is usually a combination of Fuel (full), Speedodometer (0-20), Odometer (999,999), Tach (flutters), and Temp (H) gauge. On occasion it is just one or two gauges. We've found that sometimes restarting will correct the issue. However, none of the gauge glitches affect performance. Any ideas?

I'm going to offer you real good advice, obviously your not a technician, this job is not for your weekend mechanic, diagnostics is the key to your electrical problem, you need to know about using a DVOM so you can find where the short is, I've seen this problem before in a nissan, it turned out after chasing wires for 5 hours that a key wire in back of the fuse box was loose, causing an intermitent vehicle stalling and shutting down-horrible problem to have I know. FIX??? Yeah you can get a manual and look up the wiring schematics for your vehicle, then perform an ohms test on every wire that could possibly effect your problem, check your computer, see if it smells internally like electrical burning, But I recomend a trained mechanic- job cost?? well the problem is we dont know how many hours its gonna take to find that short, then how to repair the problem is another problem, this can be a costly repair, or it could be very simple unless I was actually on the vehicle I could give you an exact price, pick a mechanic thats trust worthy and known hope it helps

My 2001 Altima's instrument gauges die out after high-speed driving for 40-50 miles. Engen also loses power. Everything is back to normal when the car cools down. It turned out the ingition relay was bad. I could duplicate the problem right away by removing the relay. Actually, it is very easy to find the relay which is located above the fuse panel. The ignition relay is the bottom left one among the five relays there. It costs only $20.

All Nissan have the fuel pump relay near de ECU. But you must hear when starting working, and falow the click. The ECU is mounted under the pasanger seat.
About the Gauges, in the circuit of the front panel, it have a transistor that suply more or less 8volts to the gauges (gas and temp). Is possibly broken. You must replace it. But first, clean it with a contact cleaner; if the problem continue, replace it. Good Luck.
