With it connected..sent power to the harness on the drvers rear with the tester and it worked..so it's not getting power from there to the passenger side..i checked the wires and I don't see anything broken
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

it has to be a wiring issue. please standby

Can't get it to work..il have to take it to a dealer
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

ok, but its going to be a wiring issue. I would do a continuity test of that wire from the connector to joint connector B07 in the left front of the luggage compartment
