Have a Car Question? Ask a Mechanic Online.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.If all of these faults occurred at the same time this may be caused by an internal electrical fault in the light switch itself.This light switch sends out the signals for the outside park lamps,interior dash lights as well as the headlight output.The signals out of this switch would need tested to verify it is the component at fault.This would require a multi meter or test light.If you have one of these tools I can tell you how to test this here just let me know.Thanks PeteIf the faults had occurred at separate times let me know and we can continue.
I do have a multimeter. Where is the switch located?
Unfortunately, I cannot right now...my daughter has the pathfinder at school. But, I'm willing to bet that is the problem. I have not looked to see how it is attached to the steering column, but when I google the replacement part for it it shows the unit and about 6-12 inches of wire that go down and end in a blue connector that then connects to a white connector mounted on the vehicle. Should I just get back to you when i have the vehicle home?
Okay, thanks...will test when she brings the pathfinder home and will send a note if I nee more help.
Sounds good.Let me know if you need anything else.
I replaced the turn signal switch (head light switch..same thing) and that fixed it all! Thanks!
Your welcome.Glad to see it has been resolved.Let us know if you need anything else in the future.
