Very common problem with the pathfinders. One of the door switches is faulty. You can pull them out, disconnect the wiring, and test the switch itself with an ohmmeter to find the faulty one.

    I've taken all five switches and the dome lights off and the under dash lights still stay on. I've tested all the switches and they work fine. I removed the diode at the left rear of the vehicle taped to the main wire harness and it tested good. One of the three wires at the front dome light is hot and it should be a ground wire.

    Either there is a short, or the relay is bad.

    I don't have a schematic of this vehicle, I dont know where the relay is located.

    It would be under the hood in the relay center or up under driver's side kick panel

1997 nissan pathfinder will turn over but won't

Sounds like you have a short in your wiring sucking up your electricity before it goes to the starter. Check for shorts near thye main relay box and in it.

Door open light on in the dash lights flicker on and off. but doors r closed

one of the door ajar switches are not adjusted properly and the door is not contacting the swtch enough to open it completely. close all doors and have someone watch the light and go around to each door and just start bumping the door and see which switch it is. replace or adjust the switch to better contact the door when it is closed

I recently purchase a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder Se V6 and for some reason the ABS light is on. Any suggestions?

Only way to find out exactly what's wrong with the ABS system is to have the trouble codes read.

Windows and door locks do not function on 1995 Nissan Pathfinder. Could it be a fuse and where would I look to find it?

It is possible that it could be a fuse. Fuses are usually located under dash driver side, or under the hood. HOWEVER, if the fuse is not blown, and all windows and locks don't work you should look into replacing the master switch in your drivers door. The switch in the drivers door controls the other locks and windows so when this switch becomes defective it will affect the other switches as well.

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 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" ( )

I hope help you with this. Good luck.

Brake and dash lights no working

Had a similar problem and fixed it by installing a new headlight switch / turn signal lever. Hope this helps.
