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 can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
