2008 nissan pathfinder rear hatch does not open. itis electric


Do you hear it make noise but not unlatch? Check the owners manual to see if there is a bypass to unlatch it when this happens, most cars have a plug you remove to trip the latch.

How to repair a 1997 Nissan pathfinder tailgate that will not open


If you can get to the back side of the tailgate handle, you will probably find a broken plastic part that would normally pull the latch at either both or one side. It seems to be a design defect, or enough corrosion in the latch to strain these plastic parts.

Just got a 1994 Nissan Pathfinder in relatively good shape. How do I open the rear hatch/tailgate?


Insert your key into the lock and turn the key left to open the hatch, or right to open the window. There is also a small lever by the door latch that locks the hatch when you close it so you don't have to use the key.

How do you open the tailgate on a 1990 nissan pathfinder?


To open the tailgate on a 1990 Nissan Pathfinder just insert the key in the lock and turn to the left, then pull the handle to open. To open just the window, turn key to the right.

There is also a small lever next to the latch on the tailgate that you push in to re-lock the tailgate before closing it.

My air bag light is flashing. What does that


1. Get in your Pathfinder and CLOSE the door. Turn the key on one click to accessory mode so that all of the other lights on the dash are on but do not start the car. Now open your door and push the the button inside your door jamb that turns your interior light on 7 times. Close your door and then turn your key off.

Now start the Pathfinder...it should be off. If not, repeat this series a couple of times and it will go off. I have had theis happen twice and this is the correct way to fix the problem.

2. Similar story, similar results here too with a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder. Got a new stereo installed, and got a bonus with the blinking airbag light on the instrument panel. Got nowhere with the 7x or 10x domelight press-the-switch voodoo. Bounced into this forum and got the fix that works for my SUV. For the 2007 Pathfinder owners out there: You'll notice the ignition key "beep" is heard only 4 times, not 5.

It took a little patience, as this procedure took me 2 attempts. This is a slight modification from the one mentioned above for the Frontier and the Maxima, but this definitely worked for my 2007 Nissan Pathfinder:

1. Key in, ignition turned to on (but don't start truck).
2. Pay attention to the 4 beeps and watch the dash lights. You're looking for the airbag light to go out just after the last beep.
3. As soon as the light goes out (but BEFORE it begins blinking on you) QUICKLY switch the key back to OFF. Don't remove the key yet.
4. After about 2 or 3 seconds, repeat steps 1 - 3. In total you will do this procedure about 3 times. I say "about" because this all took a couple of attempts, but it was at least 3 cycles.
5. After your last cycle, wait about 5 seconds and turn the key to ON again, and just observe the dash for the airbag light. It should go out and stay out. If not, try it again but maybe add an additional cycle.

Like I said, it took me a couple of attempts but it worked. All credit must go to this website, with special thanks to the poster "LB" ( http://www.carsforums.com/nissan/7423-nissan-airbag-light-reset-fix.html#post65692 )

I hope help you with this. Good luck.
