Nissan Altima

Where is the fuse box on a Nissan Figaro?

It is under the drivers footwell on the right hand side. There should be a cover over it and it should come off easily by pulling the bottom left corner of it. Don't ask me what all the fuses are for, but there is a diagram on the internet somewhere.

Turbo and Superchargers
DIY Projects

How do you install a turbo timer to a 180sx?

The main issue in the installation is the wiring. Three of them must be hooked into the ignition switch. To access the wiring you must remove the 2 lower panels underneath the driver side dash. Reaching your right hand up approximately behind the ignition switch, you'll grab hold of a bundle of wires (and also grab hold of the most slimy substance known to man -tape residue-) If you trace the bundle back to the switch, you'll feel a large round connector, about 2 inches in diameter. There are no clips holding it on, so you can wiggle it off. This allows you to see all the wires and attach the taps with ease. A word of warning! DO NOT take the connector apart. I did so in order to trace the pins (you just see a mess of wires coming out of the plug with no real order to them) Unfortunately, the pins inside are held on by the cap. Assuming you are stupid and attempt disassembly, wires will spring out, leaving you to figure out their proper place. Upon reassembly, you will then find that simply inserting your key into the ignition will cause your car to start :freak: Naturally, this would only happen if you were silly. On to the wiring. There are 4 main wires that require hook up from the unit.

1.) Red - Constant 12v

This wire hooks to the beefy red wire coming out of the switch. There are actually 2, and I found it didn't matter which one you chose, both are constant 12v

2.) Blue - Accessory Wire (Becomes active when switch is in #2 position)

This is a beefy black wire, only one coming out.

3.) Green - On Wire (Switch in # 3 position)

Blue wire with red stripe.

4.) Black - Ground

Since I put my controller in the center console next to the lighter, I mounted it to a metal post inside.

Place your ignition switch back on, and then route your wires to wherever your unit will be (up and to the right is a pass-through to the center console).

Additionally, there are 2 safety wires, a brown one for the parking brake signal, and a purple one for the speed signal. These keep the car from being driven away while the TT is still running.

5.) Brown - Parking Brake Safety Wire

Unscrew the 2 torx screws holding the tray underneath the brake lever. Detach the clip at the front holding the tray to the front console (right in front of the fuse box) You can now lift out the tray and you will find a brown wire running from the parking brake safety switch. Tap into this wire with the brown wire from the TT.

How can you solve an uncontrollable wheel judder on a Spanish built Nissan Patrol every time you hit an undulation in the road?

one way is take it to an alignment shop and get the worn/damaged parts replaced and realigned. Is it front wheels or rear? One side or both? Do it at any speed or certain speeds? does it pull to one side when NOT "juddering"?

I have the same problem but can describe it in more detail. 1. The problem normally appears at 60 km/h but gets worse at 80 km/h or more. 2. The patrol handles perfectly off-road and only suffers from this problem on the tarmac. 3. The problem is more likely to occur when the vehicle is going downhill. 4. The vehicle does not pull to one side when driving or under breaking. 5. During the vibration the vehicle keeps a straight course but will not stop juddering until the vehicle comes to rest. 6. The problem gets worse if the vehicle is cornering. 7. Juddering is normally provoked by passing over a dilatation joint crossing the road. 8. The juddering moves the front part of the vehicle from side to side and violently judders the steering wheel. It feels like you have a front wheel blow-out.

If anyone can tell me what is wrong I'm sure it would help everyone else as well. This seems to be a pretty common problem.

had the same problem - very frightening on a mountain road in Norway! make sure front wheels are balanced, but mine was solved by changing the steering damper. good luck!

now if this is the same as i experienced on my range rover, then the answer could be the front swival pre load insuffient.cure on rangie, remove a shim or two..steering damper also known to cause this..

Good day I am in agreement with the above replace the steering damper and it would not do any harm to have the wheels balanced. A wobble around 80 kph is definitely wheel balacing and once the wobble gets started having a worn damper does nothing to stop the wobble Ernest

How do you remove the starter from a 2000 Nissan Frontier King Cab?

Tools needed:

10mm socket

14mm socket


racheting wrench

long and short extension

breaker bar or Big wrench so you can put on rachet to give you more leverage.

start by disconnecting the battery. Something that will greatly help from the top is disconnect the wire from the starter going to the positive battery wire. You will thank god for this later. (it was a pain in the butt)

Remove nut from positive side of silinoid

Remove 10 mm bolt holding stainless steel lines

Remove 14 mm upper and lower bolts (I used racheting wrench with extension and 1" wrench to give me leverage)

There is one more 14 mm short bolt that is above tranny pan that you will need a long extenstion to get to.

Once you remove all bolts starter should almost fall out of place minus wire that you disconnected earlier. The one I had, had gotten caught up with other wires and I finally got aggrivated and just broke the wire off to get the starter out. This is not a big deal as the new or remanufactured starter will have this wire.


Make sure to line up the plate right and thread in the top bolt hand tightened.

Do the same as with lower bolt.

line up bracket and thread in the short bolt tight so you don't have to mess with it again.

tighten stainless steel line back together.

Have someone push the wire up you in the upper part of the engine area and plug wire back in.

tighten all bolts and make sure to attach positive batter cable wire to starter.

Reinstall battery and give the key a turn.

Oil and Oil Filters
Nissan Trucks and SUVs

What weight of oil is recommended for a 1996 Nissan pickup?

cold climate avg outside temp around or under 60 degrees i would use a 5w 30

warmer climate avg outside temp over 60 degrees a 10w 40 would be good

but for the most part 5w30 is a year round oil its basically a standard in the industry for alot of older imports, 10w 30 for older domestics, and most German cars will require a 5w40 or 5w50 only avail in synthetics. alot of newer vehicles have a specific weight of oil that you must use. if you use another type you may void your warranty

whenever your unsure check the owners manual or call the dealer for a reccomendation

How do you remove the door trim from a 1991 Nissan pintara?

Door Trim RemovalTo remove door trim on '91 model NISSAN PINTARA you have to unscrew the handle (two Philips head screws). next take off plastic surounding door release (it just clips on). then this part is tricky - you might need two flat blade screwdrivers to remove the W clip that holds the window winder handle (unless you have power windows)! after you remove the winder handle just carefully pull on the edges of the door trim to pull the clips off the door all the way around! presto the door trim comes off! just reverse process to put it back on!
Transmission Fluid

How do you use overdrive in a car with an automatic transmission?

Generally speaking, overdrive (O/D) is the highest gear in the transmission. On most cars the automatic transmission has 3 speeds and Overdrive (forth speed). Overdrive allows the engine to have less rpm with higher speed in order to have better fuel efficiency. When you switch it on, you allow the transmission to shift into overdrive mode after the certain speed is reached (usually 30 - 40 mph depending on the load). When it's off, you limit transmission shifting by third speed.

In normal driving condition the overdrive should be always on.

You may need to switch it off when driving in mountainous area or towing a trailer.

[The automatic transmission automatically shifts from OD to the 3-th gear when it feel more load. When it feels less load it shifts back to the O/D, but under certain conditions, e.g: driving uphill or towing a trailer, the transmission can not decide to stay in OD or to shift into 3-th speed and it starts to shift back and forth. That's the time you may switch it off and help the transmission to decide.] .

You also may need to switch it off when you want to slowdown using the engine braking, for example, driving downhill. [For more details, check your owner's manual]
