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!

    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
    • Forget adjusting the current tax system, we need to flush it and start over.
    • there might be a point on them look at about the 1:09 mark in the video, looks like something there; but i would be hesitant to buy one until some more info comes out about them
    • Don't forget those lower healthcare premiums for the middle class.
    • I'm not sure its his back that is ailing him now. It certainly may be, but what I have seen is his stride isn't what it used to be. His right leg doesn't seem to have the push it used to. Lou Nanne commented the same thing on Barriero's show yesterday. It certainly could be his back, but he had a knee injury last year that he tried to play through and had a "lower body" earlier this year that some said was the result of blocking a shot. I really don't think playing in the World Cup was a good idea for him. He has missed so many games the last few years only to add a few more on top of it? Not a wise choice. Correct, that is how I understand it. The front end he could be getting something like $13M salary and the backend $5M, but it will all average out over the term (13 years) which results in the cap hit of $7.5M.
    • That must be pretty noisy? The ones at the top probably could be eliminated. You might still consider a ceiling huger fan, I bet you use a generator more than you think you will.
    • That is good to know.   
    • I would go further and say that the connection is a consensus.   It doesn't seem to have been verified by actual chemical analysis but the timing and geographic distribution similarity is pretty convincing.     One interesting thing is that a lot of people ate a lot of sick cows in the UK and some other parts of Europe, but not all that many got vCJD.   Thousands of cows, maybe as many as 400,000, and 177 cases in people as of 2014, with a few more each year.  
    • You can do it yourself with froth packs at Menards. It expensive but at the price you were quoted it would work out but you still need a warm place to do it.
