Question about 2001 Nissan Xterra
I'm in the middle of this fix on my 02 Xterra. You have to remove the knee panel under the steering column (2 screws on either side, then lift up and the tabs keeping it in place will snap open). There were a few relays in there, but the flasher unit should have (I believe) 5 prongs. When I tried to engage the flashers, I could feel this one trying to go, so I believe this is the one. Mine was buried almost parallel with the steering column, way up in there. Dig around a bit.
You may want to disconnect the negative terminal from the battery to avoid the airbag going off in your face. Never happened to me, but I hear it's a good idea.
