2004 NissanTitan Trailer Problems

6 posts in this topic

I have a 2004 Nissan Titan that I just bought last winter. This spring I bought an adapter to hook up my boat. I only have power coming to the running lights and the positive sign. I have checked titan forums which told me: bad ground, bad fuse,bad relay. I have checked every fuse and there is a good ground. There are three relays that I am going to replace for $25.00. I bought the truck used from a non-nissan dealer, but I will call them to see what they can do. Any help would be greatly appreciated-I am losing my mind to figure out the problem. bflees@yahoo.com

Welcome to Hotspotoutdoors/FishingMinnesota Bruceman!

Is this a factory seven pin trailer plug in that you had to buy a 7 to four adapter for?

Do you have an owners manual?

Yes, I have the adapter. The owners manual is not very helpful.

So you checked for power at the seven pin connector?

In the owners manual it should specifically list trailer turn signal, brake and running lights. Just want to make sure that you found and checked those specifically.

Yes,I checked them with a tester and there was only power to the running lights and the postive sign. I think it may be a relay problem. there are three of them that deal with trailer lights.

Sorry it has taken so long but I wanted to see a diagram before I went into detail.

It looks like the left turn and right turn and brake are controlled by the BCM (body control module).

The relays you mention look like they control the running lights (tow relay 1), Electric brakes (tow relay 2), and I'm not sure what the third one is for unless it has something to do with the electric braking.

I would check the back side of the connector on the truck specifically looking at the yellow/black and green w/ black wires. Those are the two that control the turn signal/brake lights. If the corroded you may have found the answer. If you can trace that harness back to a plug in and check for power there that might help also. I have run into a few (not Nissans) where the connectors have been corroded.

Good luck!

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.

    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.   
    • The new minn kota 300d didn't have the two 20ga wires so just spliced the black  to black and red to white from the charging cables, hooked all the batteries back up and everything is working again.
