How do I replace the flasher unit on a 1996 Nissan Quest?
I need to replace the flasher unit on a 1996 Nissan Quest. I've already purchased the replacement and I've looked in all 3 of the fuse boxes, but I can't find anything referring to the turn signals on the fuse map. Can anyone tell me where the flasher unit is located, and what the procedure is for replacing it? Thanks!

You need to install a solid-state flasher(usually for trucks that pull a trailer occasionally,but not always).This allows the flasher to switch on/off at the same rate regardless of how many bulbs are connected(incadescent bulbs pull more amperage,making a bimetal filament flasher cycle too fast).You will use the solid state type for the opposite reason(LEDs do not pull enough amperage to heat the filament and cycle the flasher).You may have to search for the right type to fit your Nissan(there are two and three wire flashers).
It is behind the left kick panel by drivers foot. It pulls away and exposes a steel bracket with 3 cans on it. The Lucas black plastic case id the flasher. It is easier to remove the screws and the bracket to expose the release clip for the flasher.
