Question about 1990 Nissan Pathfinder

Open Question

Purpose of switch on dash of Terrano R3M (auto transmission).

This is on the dash in front of the driver, it has three positions, 'HOLD', 'A/T' and 'POWER'.

I understand 'Power', but what else does this switch do?

Thanks,

Michael Percy.

SOURCE: Front wheels not moving in

The grease seeps out when the seal is worn out or defective. In your case it appears it's defective: a bearing in the front differential broke, it locked the wheels and damaged the seal.
Repairing it will be a big job: you will have to completely dismantle the front differential. In the mean time disconnect all the shafts to it and use the truck strictly as an 2WD.

2002 Cadi Deville, can't get any locks to operate with remote or dash push buttons, the remote operates everthing but the locks! When the remote door lock is pressed, lites flash,horn blows locks not.


Power Door Lock Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power door locks. Each lock actuator is powered and controlled by the door module mounted in the individual door, but the rear integration module (RIM), which is the master control for the door lock system, determines when the lock functions are permitted. The RIM receives and examines the requested lock function from the individual door modules, or from the remote function actuator (RFA) via the class 2 serial data circuit. The RIM also examines the transmission shift selector position and the ignition switch position information available over the Class 2 serial data circuits. If the RIM determines that a lock or unlock function is permitted, it sends a class 2 message back to the individual door modules commanding them to perform that Lock or Unlock function.
Power Door Lock Components
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Driver door lock switch


?€¢
Passenger front door lock switch


?€¢
LH rear door lock switch


?€¢
RH rear door lock switch


?€¢
LH middle door lock switch (w/ V4U)

I have a 2007 Cadillac cts my key stuck my Windows stuck my flashers flashing and my car starts up so what's going on


Your key is stuck ? It won't move , it won't come out of the lock cylinder ? Can you shift it from park to drive , neutral etc... Are there any lights lit on the dash , yellow wrench light , service vehicle soon light ? any messages on Driver Information Center ? Your Cadillac has numerous electronic features controlled by modules - computers ! If your not familiar with electronics an these things I suggest you take it to someone who is . Does you Cadillac have console fool shifter ?
Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.
Linear Shift Assembly: If the vehicle is equipped with a column mounted gear shift, it has a linear shift assembly on the steering column. The linear shift assembly has a cable that runs from the linear shift assembly to the ignition lock cylinder case. The purpose of this cable is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in gear and the vehicle may still be moving. The linear shift assembly cable contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.
The windows are no exception , they are controlled by modules in each door an are connected by a serial data communication bus !
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door window can be operated, either from a power window switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA) , or, from a power window switch mounted locally on its associated door. The driver door window can be operated only from the driver door power window switch built into the DDSA.
When the driver door module (DDM) receives a driver door window switch request from the DDSA, the DDM examines the request and inspects to see if it has received any messages from any of the other vehicle modules prohibiting the movement. If no prohibitive messages have been received, the DDM then applies power and ground to the driver door window motor to move the window as requested.
When a passenger door module, passenger front door module (PDM), LH rear door module (LRDM), or RH rear door module (RRDM), receives a window switch request from, either the DDSA or the window switch mounted locally to its door, the passenger door module examines the request and inspects to see if it has received any messages from any of the other vehicle modules prohibiting the movement. If no prohibitive messages have been received, the passenger door module then applies power and ground to its associated window motor to move the window as requested.

I need the wiring schematics for driver door panel and all switches in a 2003 Chevy Tahoe. My window won't go down on that side and I'm sure I have a short somewhere because my switch works with all other...


You don't know what your getting into , The door switches have electronic control modules incorporated ,DDM- Driver door module an PDM passenger door module .
The power window system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Driver Door Module (DDM)


?€¢
Passenger Door Module (PDM)


?€¢
Body Control Module (BCM)


?€¢
RR power window switch


?€¢
Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches


?€¢
Window lockout switch


?€¢
Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)


?€¢
LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left windows)


?€¢
RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right windows)


The DDM contains four power window switches which are integral components. Closing any of the normally open, rocker type switches provides the DDM with a request for power window operation. The switches for the two front windows have three positions UP, Down and Express Down, while the switches for the rear windows have only two positions, UP and Down. Each of these switches and their positions is a direct input into the DDM. Upon receiving a request for power window operation, the DDM, transmits a Class 2 message indicating the switch and it's changed position.
The PDM contains a single power window switch that is an integral component. Closing of this normally open, rocker switch provides the PDM with a request for the front passenger power window operation. The switch for the front passenger window has two positions Up and Down. Each of these switch positions is a direct input to the PDM.
The two rear passenger doors have there own switches. Each of the switches contain a power window up and down relay. A switch activation alone can control the up and down functions of the rear windows. However the BCM, upon receiving a Class 2 message from the DDM, can control the set of relays which will activate the rear window motors.

The data link connector (DLC) allows a scan tool to communicate with the class 2 serial data line. The serial data line is the means by which the microprocessor-controlled modules in the vehicle communicate with each other. Once the scan tool is connected to the class 2 serial data line through the DLC, the scan tool can be used to monitor each module for diagnostic purposes and to check for diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). Class 2 serial data is transmitted on a single wire at an average of 10.4 kbps.

Engine removal


There is a device that you can put on the hook and there are too chains down to the lifting points of the engine The hook point can be screwed back and forth allowing the engine to tilt down at the back and the angle achieved will allow the engine to clear any problems . You can achieve an angle of lift up to 60 degrees safely. When refitting the engine as you put the engine in as you lower the engine you can alter the angle to glide it in and up to the gear box flange perfectly
