Question about 1998 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

How do you replace the wiring pigtail for the thermal transmitter on a 98 nissan altima?

It splices off the altinator and two wires run about 8 inches long to a conector with a little metal circle on it the circle hooks on to a post on the sensor coming out of the upper radiator hose engine side. The wires coming into the conector have seen better days andthe little metal circle broke out of the plastic housing.

I was changing my headlights on my nissan altima 2005 2.5 s and while changing them the low beam on my driver side stopped working can you help?


It could be the wire just before the headlight plug, or as it is sometimes referred to, the pigtail. I just had one go on my camry after changing the bulb. If you have a multimeter, you can check for voltage at the plug with the headlight switch on. If there is no voltage there while the other lights are all working, this may be your issue. These can be purchased at auto parts stores. Just need to know what type of bulb it is for. It includes the plug with wires and you just need to cut off your old plug and splice in new one with wire
connectors.

How to install a harness for trailer lights on a 1993 honda accord station wagon


The SIMPLE way to do it is...

You can buy replacement taillight bulbs with wiring pigtail wiring hanging out of the side of the bulb. You'd use them to replace your existing taillight bulbs and connect your trailer harness to the pigtail wires. You may need to drill through the taillight housing to get the harness wiring in to the bulbs - if you have to do that, seal it back up around the wiring with RTV silicone.

That's a lot easier than tracking down each wire, probing it to find out what it does, and splicing into it with pinch splices (which aren't very reliable), then periodically replacing the pinch splices that've gone bad and made your trailer lights fail. You can make a pretty good splice to the pigtailed taillight bulbs, and it's really easy to tell what each pigtail does - brake/turn or park light.

Broken pigtail on back of odometer


Yes unfortunately the boneyard will be your only option and they will most likely charge you for the whole harness as well unless they have a damaged harness with a good pigtail you might get lucky, as for spliceing it in, a huge job to do it right. With that many connections you will probably want to splice the wires in different locations say 1/2 inch apart from each other because what you are suggesting is a huge amount of solder and shrink tube or crimp connections (don't recommend) which will take up a lot of space. I really suggest you try and change the harness as it will be extremly frustrating, splicing that many connections in the car and I am not insulting your workmanship but it probably won't last.
