If It's a simple solution , it will save me $160 to put the car on the Nissan computer to diagnose problem
Expert:  Billy replied 2 years ago.
If the fuses were checked. The next thing would be having the relay checked. It is located in the same box as the fuses in the engine compartment.
As the relays and fuses are the most common causes for such a problem, they require checking first, and if the problem persists, we proceed to other checks/components, until the problem is resolved.
Would you be able to have the relay checked (and double check the fuses) and get back to me so we proceed accordingly?
PS: no need putting on the computer to diagnose yet, simply the fuses and the relay first.
