carguy1 :

HI there! Look closely at the 100 amp fusible link in the box next to the battery. Usually if you don't have all the electrical it is because the link has been blown. It has a clear top so you should be able to look through it with a flashlight and see if it is blown. There are also a bunch of 40 amp fusible links that should be checked as well. Take a look and let me know!

Okay, t6hat definitely looks promising. I can see through the window at the top of the link, it looks like it might have blown. How do I oull it to replace it?
Nissan Mechanic: Mike V., Nissan Technician replied 8 years ago
Which link is bad? The big one?

yeah, the 100 amp
Nissan Mechanic: Mike V., Nissan Technician replied 8 years ago
Ok.This is a tough one. I have no diagrams for you so I have to try and explain it. This fuse is bolted into the box. You have to separate the sides of the box to access the bolts that hold it in.If you look closely at the box, you can see tabs that hold the relay section of the box, next to the links. You have to separate there to get to the bolts.
