Question about 1988 Nissan Pathfinder
The cruise control and electric side mirrors both went out at the same time. I'm assuming it's related to a fuse but the fuse diagram in the repair manual I have doesn't identify a fuse for the cruise control and mirrors. Is there a diagram of the fuse box that identifies the correct fuse or is the problem related to something else?
In the fuse box driver side. If you pull out the panel covering the fuse box there is a decal inside behind the cover that should tell you what it fuse section does. There are ACC 1 and another section ACC 2. Or you can simply just pull out the fuses one at a time and see which one is burnt. If it burns out again, then you have a short. The fuses are clearly marked in the box to what they belong to. Example: Cig Lt (Cigarette Lighter) HD Lmp (Head Lamps) Etc.
You also need to check near the positive terminal of the battery the fuse links that are there. Perhaps the one that feeds the accessories portion is burnt. How do you know is burnt. Two orange ones, three green ones and one is black or grey. If is burnt, it will feel rubbery like or clearly show the burn by a black coloring or greyish coloring if its the black one. You can check them with a volt ohm meter for continuity from one end to the other. If you don't have a continuity reading the link is bad and needs to be replaced.n I eliminated all my fuse links and replaced them with fuse holder adapters where I can just change the fuse 10 amps or 15 amps depending on the circuit, but those only go if someone is messing with the circuit and accidentally shorts the circuit. Good Luck!
