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!

    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.
