Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Was the passenger seat working before this issue here and was any wiring changed when the seat stopped working or before it stopped working?

Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.

Seat was working no wiring issues

And they are saying the reason it is not working is because the wrong wiring was installed am I correct?

They are wondering how it worked at all
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Because connection doesn't match up

That is odd.I do see how there are different seat options on this model here.I suspect the harness installed was incorrect from factory and some how did work for a period of time.It may be that the seat control unit isnt seeing the position signals from the 5 prong motor with a 2 prong harness and has stopped working because of it but it should have never worked.

I would ask them to verify that this is the cause here for sure.I have seen several seat motors fail and cause this issue as well here.But it does sound like you need the correct harness and this may be something they can warranty since it was built incorrectly.I would ask if they can get Nissan involved in covering the costs since it was manufactured incorrectly.
