Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
When the alarm is going off are the parking lights flashing? or the head lights?
The reason I am asking this is so I can identify which alarm is going off to help you.
Let me know.
Thank you. That is the factory alarm. Try using the mechanical key to lock and unlock the truck from the drivers door. If that doesn't shut it off, then try the passenger door or hatch.
Let me know how you make out..
Then the next step is to pull a door panel to access the tamper switch. The Tamper switch is what connects to the door lock cylinders. If turning the key in the door and locking and unlocking it does not turn off the factory alarm, then you have to connect the tamper switch. This link is a image of what it looks like and how it connects to the lock cylinder.
Connect the tamper switch. When you lock the car with the key you should see the security light turn solid for 10 to 20 seconds then start to flash. Using the key will then deactivate the alarm.
Do you need a diagram on how the door panel is secured so you can remove it?
Sorry you broke it. Let me know if you need any more info on this.
ok.. Hang on..
Ok.. Let me know how you make out and if you have any more questions on this or need any more info.
You found the tamper switch in the door?
Can you take a picture of it and insert it here to show me what you are seeing?
I got the pictures, Thank you.
Any chance of getting a picture of the back of the lock cylinder?
Yes, inside the door. do you see the tamper switch connected to the lock cylinder?
Try feeling down toward the latch of the door. You need to find it.
That is the area you want to look in the door.
That may be it.. .
No worries.. If we need to keep this question open and continue tomorrow we can do that also.
Sure... I am here till you call it.
Please don't feel pressure. I am here for a while yet. So take your time. If you need a flash light to look into the door to find that tamper switch, please do so
ok.. Looks like the tamper switch may be snapped on to the lock cylinder by the looks of this picture.
look at that closely if you can. Put the key in the lock cylinder and turn the key and see if you can see if flipping the switch.
Can you close the door with the door panel off and see if when you lock the door the security light turns solid for 10 to 20 seconds, then blinks?
It does not come on at all? even when the door is open?
See if the truck starts now or if the alarm goes off ?
It's just the head lights that flash the inside dash lights don't flash ?
Do you have a Test light?
I take it you pulled the horn fuse so the horns don't sound correct?
Do you have a test light?
I would like to check all fuses with the test light tomorrow. This alarm should have turned off by using the key in either of the front doors or Hatch. Since it didn't, I am wondering if there is a fuse blown which is keeping the alarm active and not allowing the door tamper switches to operate.
That is how fuses are checked with a test light. You have a fuse box inside the car and under the hood by the battery.
Not a problem. I will be online again tomorrow.
Just return back to this question so we can continue.
Your welcome. Talk to you tomorrow and you have a good night also!
