1988 Nissan Pathfinder Cruise Control and Side mirrors

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!

The cruise control light comes on but it does not engage. It's a 1995 pathfinder.


If your light comes on but the cruise control does not engage you may have a vacuum leak some where. When you set your cruise control your vehicle uses vacuum to maintain speed and if you have a vacuum leak this can not happen. Try checking all of your vacuum lines. I hope this helps.

My cruise control light behind the button is burnt out how do I get at it to replace it.


The following is from 2002 Honda Odyssey factory manual page 20-70: Driver's switch panel removal. (This is the switch panel to the left of the steering wheel with TCS, cruise control, mirror, and sliding door switches.) Gently pull on the driver's switch panel bottom right corner to release the (2) right side clips, then detach the remaining (2) clips on the left side and the single top center clip. If equipped, disconnect the cruise control main switch connector, TCS switch connector, power mirror switch connector, and power sliding door connector, then remove the panel. Once the panel is removed, you can push out the switch from the rear. The switch has two bulbs in it, one is the cruise switch backlight bulb and the other is the cruise control function bulb.

No power to the power windows cruise control buttons or the power mirrors and door lock on a 1994 nissan pathfinder.


Not common to have all those gadget fail at the same time. check the switch unit it self,windows switch and mirrors switch can be faulty. make sure all fuses and relays are good and windows. on cruise control can be many factor, have the unit check. fuses and relays are cheap at junk yard. some of the nissan relays are switchable by using ac relay to power window relay as long it has the same voltage. It should have the marking on the side.

Cruise control stopped working....too


Howdy. I used to have one of these cars and I loved it with a passion, and spent much time tinkering with things I ought not to have. I hope I can help you.
The first thing you will want to do is pop the hood and look at your throttle body. There should be 2 cables attached to the passenger side if I remember correctly. The outside should be connected to your accelerator pedal, the other will be your cruise control. Trace the inside cable to your cruise control assembly on the passenger side and you will find a fairly straight forward cruise control assembly. The most likely problem is that one of your vacuum lines is cracked/snapped or that your linkage to your cruise control is broken. Hope this helps.

Speedometer/odometer/cruise control isn't working.


It's your speed sensor at the transfercase on the drivers side i believe. Check the wire and clip to the sensor for any break or loose contacts. 
Easy fix and is about a 30 min job to do with simple tools. Un-clip the wire conntection, remove the retainer bolt and slide and sensor out. To install just do everything in reverse and add transmisson oil if needed.

Most of the time, it's going to be the sensor. Keep in mind that there are two sensor's so make sure it's the one on the output shaft at the transfercase. The other one is closer to the front of the transmission on the same side with is the input Volosity speed sensor.
If it was your ABS sensor, you ABS light would come on in your dash.
Good luck and hope this helps

I have a problem with the "cruise control" from my Nissan


Hi, replace the resume/accel switch. I've seen alot of failures on this. If it still doesn't work, the cruise control module is the only thing that can possibly cause this problem. It's located in the left rear quarter panel behind the spare tire and plastic trim.
