Question about 2005 Nissan Frontier

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Frontier with factory tow package ... just had problem with right trailer turn signal not working .... dealer replaced blown fuse .... Question: In case this happens on the road, where is the trailer fuse box located? I can't find it. Are they the standard auto fuses? Thanks, Luke

    Update, I found the fuses. If you don't know where to look you'd never find them. They control the LH and RH turning signals on the trailer. They are in a small white connector together by themselves. Way up under the dash by the steering column. No were near any other fuse. They are standard 10amp fuses. Luke

I actually know the solution. I just went through it. It's a very long story, and I cannot tell you how mad I am at the Nissan Dealership in Grand Junction, Colorado, for not knowing the answer to this question right away. It has cost me over $500 and 500 miles of driving to learn the location of this tiny fuse holder. Look straight up above the brake pedal and accelerator pedal (under the dashboard) and see a wiring harness that plugs into the "Body control module" above the steering column. You should see two mini fuse holders sticking out of this harness. They are whitish in color, like a gallon milk bottle. One is for the right trailer turn signal, and one is for the left.
This is the only year Nissan Frontier where this is true (as far as I know) it is the result of a recall on that year where they installed this harness. If your truck went in for the recall, then you will have the same harness located in the same place. Good luck, Bob Walker, Moab, Utah

SOURCE: 2007 Nissian Frontier trailer lights

There should be a 30 AMP mini blade fuse in the fuse box under the hood that you are probably missing. I assume that since you got the relays with the wiring kit, that you got the kit from a Nissan dealer. If that is true, there should be a fuse in the kit also- in a sealed bag that has the "trailer wiring harness owner's manual" in it.


Hope this is helpful!

SOURCE: i just installed the 7 pin factory trailer harness

In the passenger side behind the plastic kick panel there is a control module that works the trailer lights, if you got the towing package. My lights were malfunction and it turned out the unit in the kick panel was not wired up properly from the dealer. Have a dealer check it or get the installation diagrams from a nissan dealer or the web and investigate your module on your own. Best of luck.

SOURCE: factory 99 dodge trailer plug wiring

You'll need to disconnect the wires from either the truck connector or the trailer connector...
I highly suggest purchasing a voltage checker- it looks like a screwdriver with a pigtail of wire with an alligator clip on the end. The tip of the 'screwdriver' has a point for probing. The light in the probe will light up...makes it easy to trouble shoot without a helper behind the trailer.
Hook the aligator clip to a good positive grounding point on the bumper or frame(not painted).
then pin by pin on the truck connection, stick the probe on each terminal tab.. and write a simple diagram where you find brake, tail, backup, etc...
Then i'd suggest, taking the connector off of your trailer, exposing the wire ends.
Run again thru your diagram and turn on each light of the truck. As you do, touch the wires from the trailer to that specific terminal. (make sure your ground wire is attached on the trailer) you can mark each wire with a piece of tape and label it which is which.
then simply attach your trailer wires according to your diagram to the terminals in the connector... that should get you in business..
hope that makes sense...
That way if the factory wiring harness remains the same, you'll be able to use it with other trailers if the need arises..

The trailer plug wiring just taps into the truck harness to the rear lights so if the truck lights work, the problem is in the wiring, not a fuse.

2003 Dodge Ram 3500 left turn signal problems / trailer


Well let me shed some light on this issue. I have the same problem. Trailer connection from truck does not have power to left turn signal and left brake light. I just got back from the dealership and $100.00 labor charge. My problem is the TIPM (Fuse Box for short) and FCM (little silver module hooked to the Fuse Box on the left hand side of the fuse box). $910.00 for the parts and Chrysler doesn't have any in stock. 4-6 weeks to maybe fill a back order. I am currently researching an alternative way to fix this issue. I will let you know.

2005 Nissan Frontier...when I step on the brakes my right turn signal comes on but doesn't blink? when I turn on the Left turn signal and step on the brakes, it blinks just fine! What's causing this?????


If the turn signal bulbs are the same as the turn signal bulbs it would indicate the brake light on the left is not working. If the brake lights AND the right turn signal come on it could indicate a wire is getting a cross feed from an improper source. If you are comfortable with electrical systems - If you have a tow package you may want to check the wires to the trailer. Otherwise have it checked by an electrical shop.

I have a 1997 Ford F150 4x4 Supercab Stepside with 5.4L and factory towing package. On the factory trailer wiring plug I am not getting power for turn signals or brake lights. Running lights and brake...


It is a possible option that the relays for the Stop / Turn are having an issue or the fuse in the Engine Mini panel is blown ( page 142 of the 1997 owners manual )

On the 1997/98 MY this is in the aux relay box in between the Engine Compartment fuse panel and the engine mini fuse panel.

The output of the MFS ( Multifunction switch ) triggers the relays, to use the trailer tow fuse to operate the trailer lamps. The fuse to supply power to the Normally Open contacts on the trailer relays should be hot at all times. You can verify this with the diagram below by metering from pin #3 to pin # 2 [ground for coil] or to another known ground.

These are 1/2 size Ford ISO relays, and can be jumpered to make testing easier ( and with this diagram you can bench test them with a meter to check resistance over the Normally Open contacts, when applying power and ground to the coil ).

I am not 100% sure on the 97/98 MY F-150 about the location of this connector, but the 99-03 have all the wires to the rear of the truck via a connector along the driver's side frame rail, that you can check for ( easiest with the spare lowered )
777e616.jpg

Start with the Fuse in the Engine Mini panel, to see if the 20A fuse is good and work back towards the trailer tow adapter via the relays. I am going with the obvious blown fuse for the Stop/Turn lamps for the trailer.

If this is a factory light harness for the trailer hookup on your Caravan. Look under the hood for a fuse box. Many 2000+ vehicles have this with separate fuses just for the trailer lights.
