Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
Do you have a test light to check fuses? That is the first thing I would like to check.
Let me know.
The Brake light circuit is a totally different circuit than the directionals.
I am thinking possibly a fuse may have blown. So since you are on the side of the road you have no choice than to pull each one ( mainly the Ecm control ones ) to see if any are blown.
Let me look up some fuse locations for you to check.. Hang on..
Check that fuse for me and let me know what you find.
Ok.. Next thing is to put one of the spare fuses in and see if that resolves your issue.
Well, then the next thing you may not be able to do if you are on the side of the road. Cause if once fuse was blown, there could be more. So I would start checking all fuses with the key off. Also recheck that one and see if it blew again after you tried to start the truck. That is about the only thing you can do right now on the side of the road.
Let me know how you make out checking fuses.
Well, you can try tapping the Ecm fuse in the IPDM. Or remove it and swap it with the fog light relay if you have pliers. Here is a image of the relays location. I made the Ecm relay green so you can identify it. The IPDM is on the Passenger Side of the engine bay all the way to the back of the fire wall. You will need to pinch the release clip on each side to slide it up to access the relay.
If the IPDM is black, then disregard this whole thing. The image is the Old Style White one.
Ok, If it starts with a Jump, you may have a Alternator not charging properly which ran the battery down causing the truck to stall.
Let me know how you make out.
The shift lock release solenoid gets it's signal from the brake switch. That is the relation. Does the brake lights now work after replacing the fuse?
Recheck that fuse and see if it's blown again.
I will be online around 7 pm EST, can we continue then?
