ok

Hey how are you

We have several things we need to check other than the brake switch ,ASCD sensor and IP panel and TCM sensors ?

please click on link and tell me if yoiu can view pdf file I sent you

If you do not mind me asking ,are you looking at fixing this yourself or looking to know the most possible cause of this issue and taking it to repair shop for the work ?

Do you have any prior experience in electrical troubleshooting and testing with a test light for power & ground ?

Do you have a test light & or power probe for testing ?

Please let me know

Thank You

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
you're best hunch is that it's NOT the switch on steering wheel?

junction box is passenger side ,will be labeled A on the diagram i sent you

is the "ECM" and ECM relay" the same thing?

no sir

ecm is a relay in the fuse box

ecm , is control module box, like car computer

check out this link on ebay to see how it looks like :)

If it were bad wouldn't other things not be working? Just curious how to check it before I spend money and replace. Thanks again

offcourse , do not replace ecm yet expensive and i agree we do not want to throw parts at it :)

,we have to check relay first and power to ecm

checking want be easy manualy , be best if you get it scanned with Nissan scanner or equivalent

and retrieve fault code and based on that fault number we can pull up trouble shoot and narrow it down

if you do get it scanned post the fault back here for me

do you have a security light flashing on dash

Please let me know

Thank You
