Question about 1993 Nissan Altima

2 Answers

I have a nissan altima 93. My radio and lighter port went out at the same time yesterday while using the gps and radio at the same time. Now, I know that my radio, lighter port, clock, and wipers all don't work when the engine is on. When the engine is turned off and the key is switched so accessories are on but engine is off, the radio and clock turns on. How can I make all of these to work when the engine is on?

Obviously it is a fuse, because it effects so many things.
There is a fuse box near the battery, and one under the dash.
Each should have a diagram of what the fuses are for. But you may need to use a test light, as fuses are not that easy to tell if they are burned out by looking at them.

You could have a fusible link in the wiring from ignition to the accesories they may have shorted out. That could be why it only works when the accessorie is turned on because that is a different wire then with the engine on.I would trace your wiring and double check your fuses first thing.

2003 Nissan Altima radio still works but the clock/radio station display went blank...HELP


Just fixed this myself today. There is a surface mount component (resistor I believe) that has come off inside the radio. It was labelled 180 on my radio. It is on the circuit board actually inside the radio, not the dispaly button panel, on the left side behind the volume know. I soldered it back on and now the display works again.

It would be next to the ash tray. If you don't have an ashtray, then there should be a plug-in with a cover that says 12V on it.

The cig lighter stopped working, I use it to run the GPS


Check the lighter fuse, it is usually on it's own circuit and your owners manual should show which fuse it is. The adapter may also be bad for the GPS, see if the lighter will function and get hot.

How do I fix a radio light that went out?


jackxlong: I wish I could give you an answer you would like, but it is the only one I know.
Unfortunately, Nissan has no service procedures for actual internal repairs to the radio. The only thing you can do is remove it and have it repaired at a shop which services audio equipment.
It is sometimes cheaper to buy a used unit from a salvage yard than it is the have your repaired. Often the minimum charge is more than what you can buy a used unit for.
Look into it before doing anything. Check with regular automotive audio shops, they may have "Take out" units they will sell cheap and/or be able to fix yours.
Good Luck.
