I took positive battery cable off to install new fog lights,now my remote door lock won't work,can u help me?I have a 96 Nissan pathfinder 5speed 4wd v6


Hi Ellis
Has your radio also lost it;s stations?
Dont know your model but many cars loose their security settings when you disconnect the battery. Auto electricians often place a small battery source across the Bat cables while they disconnect the Battery.
This simply holds their settings

Contact a Nissan Dealership and ask the service department?

Reverse lights on my 1987 Nissan Pathfinder V6 have never worked


I would check the switch on the transmission which controls that circuit. It is called the backup light switch, or the neutral safety switch if it is an automatic.

I can't turn off the security alarm on my 1998 nissan pathfinder


I couldn't turn off the security alarm on my 1999 Pathfinder as I replaced the battery,
Solution: I read the solution here to disconnect the positive cable, open the driver's door, insert the key, then reconnected the positive cable, while honking, I turn the key to the left, to the right and to the left again while the door is still open. The honking stopped. Then I started the truck without a problem. Thank you for the hint.

My 2004 nissan pathfinder has problems with the battery every once in a while. It seems to happen when the car has sat for a day or so. The car will not start, however when you check the battery and...


get a new positive cable, clean the battery post well and tighten both ends of the cable end snug.
the other end no doubt attaches to the top of the starter.
with a bad connection at the cable end you are not getting a good charge either. I would get a new dealer cable, not a parts store generic one. That way the connectors are correct and you do no splicing.

You may try replacing the battery and the battery cables cause they may possibly be fryed from the cross-over and if that doesn't work you might have to replace the fuse box and the fuses running into them
