Question about 2001 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab

1 Answer

2001 Nissan Frontier

While driving my truck the order night the dash lights started to go dim and the air bag light started blinking. If I turned the air conditioning on the mother would start to stall. When I got home I checked everything and found that the battery had a bad cell. I replaced the battery, but it done the same thing that night. The alternator is putting out right at 12.7 to 13 volt. So I am going to replace my battery terminals to see if this helps, but does anyone have any ideas?

thank you

Waste of time doing that
alternators need to put out 14.5-14.8 volts dc to work properly
could be the alternator , voltage regulator or drive belt adjustment
best if you take it to an accredited auto electrician for a charge circuit system test

Well since the lights are controlled by the OBD (on board diagnostics), you'll have to reset it. You may be able to do this by simply disconnecting the battery for a few hours. However, a lot of newer vehicles have electronically locked radios which require the manual to be able to be re-enabled.

I'd check out the radio before disconnecting the battery.

The only other ways are to physically disconnect the lights in the dash or get someone with an OBD reader to clear the codes.

Hi. this is defiantly a slow or major drain that is occurring within this vehicle. Here is a test that you can preform that will help you find this battery drain so you can illuminate this issue.



--BATTERY DRAINAGE TEST PROCEDURE--


Using a 12-volt test light, hook one end to the negative battery post the other end to the negative battery cable you just disconnected. The test light will glow or "light" if there is a drain. If the "light or glow" is faint, that is probably normal draw for the clock or computer. If the "light or glow" is bright, then there is a large drain. That should be corrected. Now start removing and replacing the fuses one by one until the light goes out; that one will be the circuit with the drain. Remember to hold in the button in the door jam for the interior lights.


Please rate and god bless:)

With a volt meter and the engine at idle, check the voltage at the battery.It should always be just over 12 up to 14 volts. At idle with no accessorys on (lights, fan, radio ect.) The voltage should stay just over 12 volts. As you turn on all the accessorys the voltage should rise up to between 12-14 volts.
Also, a new battery needs to be fully charge before use. Most new batterys sit on the shelf and lose charge. My last new battery needed 8 hours of chargeing to be fully charged.
I hope this helps.

first thing to check is the proper routing of the belt. there is also a tensioner and it may have failed and need replacing. you may also want to check that you are getting the proper replacement alternator (amperage). you have not mentioned if you hear the belt slipping or not. removing the battery connectors and cleaning them with a wire brush would also be a good idea. keep in mind if your stereo is of the anti theft variety make sure you know the code and how to enter it.

My air bag light is flashing. What does that


1. Get in your Pathfinder and CLOSE the door. Turn the key on one click to accessory mode so that all of the other lights on the dash are on but do not start the car. Now open your door and push the the button inside your door jamb that turns your interior light on 7 times. Close your door and then turn your key off.

Now start the Pathfinder...it should be off. If not, repeat this series a couple of times and it will go off. I have had theis happen twice and this is the correct way to fix the problem.

2. Similar story, similar results here too with a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder. Got a new stereo installed, and got a bonus with the blinking airbag light on the instrument panel. Got nowhere with the 7x or 10x domelight press-the-switch voodoo. Bounced into this forum and got the fix that works for my SUV. For the 2007 Pathfinder owners out there: You'll notice the ignition key "beep" is heard only 4 times, not 5.

It took a little patience, as this procedure took me 2 attempts. This is a slight modification from the one mentioned above for the Frontier and the Maxima, but this definitely worked for my 2007 Nissan Pathfinder:

1. Key in, ignition turned to on (but don't start truck).
2. Pay attention to the 4 beeps and watch the dash lights. You're looking for the airbag light to go out just after the last beep.
3. As soon as the light goes out (but BEFORE it begins blinking on you) QUICKLY switch the key back to OFF. Don't remove the key yet.
4. After about 2 or 3 seconds, repeat steps 1 - 3. In total you will do this procedure about 3 times. I say "about" because this all took a couple of attempts, but it was at least 3 cycles.
5. After your last cycle, wait about 5 seconds and turn the key to ON again, and just observe the dash for the airbag light. It should go out and stay out. If not, try it again but maybe add an additional cycle.

Like I said, it took me a couple of attempts but it worked. All credit must go to this website, with special thanks to the poster "LB" ( http://www.carsforums.com/nissan/7423-nissan-airbag-light-reset-fix.html#post65692 )

I hope help you with this. Good luck.

The airbag light blinks after starting


I bet you have a ground wire loose or relay gone bad. One little thing will throw off your whole vehicle. I would check the relays, fuses and ground wires. But it is definitely electrical and hope its not BCM
