    I know this is a frequent problem. I need any leads, links to past discussions, websites, solutions for repairing or replacing the OEM cd changer in my 01 Pathfinder. I get only a constant gear grinding noise for thirty seconds after start up. No cds eject, none play, and the error2 message shows up. If you have replaced yours (the path I'll likely follow), I would love to know which model deck or changer you've used and your satisfaction with it. Thanks!

    I have a 99 1/2 Pathfinder and just recently our cigarette lighter has stopped working. We use it with our Panasonic DVD player for the kids, so obviously this is an important problem to resolve (!). I checked the fuse for the lighter and it appears fine and we have not completed any work on the car, such as removing the radio or anything like that. I really don't want to take the car in to be fixed if its a small repair. I just don't want to spend $150 on this, but I might have to. Does anyone have any ideas on this? Also, to note, the extra power source on the middle console in front of the rear seat also doesn't work, and quite honestly I don't think it has ever worked. That fuse is okay as well. Thanks for any help or ideas you guys can provide!

    My cigarette light does not have power. Could it be a fuse and does anyone know where the fuse is located? Inside the car by the steering wheel or under the hood?

    This info will be in your owners manual.

    For the benefit of those buying a used Pathy that didn't come with an owner's manual, perhaps you could summarize what it says?

    Anyone driven one yet, or better yet bought one? What are your thoughts? Is the engine rather noisy, like the Armada?
  • shark715shark715 Posts: 380
    I'd be happy to, but my PF is an '01 and the fuse chart is likely different.
  • DRL's work on drivers side only. Headlights work both High and Low on both Left and Right. Is there a rely that controls (lowers Voltage) and if there is where is it located. BTW this is a Canadain vehicle.... :(
  • My girlfriend's 2000 PF just recently began having an intermittent problem with the fan switch. When you turn on the fan, nothing happens. The AC compressor won't even come on (so at least it won't freeze up!) Eventually, if she turns it on and off and on and off enough, it will suddenly come on. She's not having any other problems. Any ideas would be very helpful?

    Also, is it difficult to remove the center panels to get in to the switch itself with a meter?

  • I have a 95 pathfinder in great shape. 95,000 original miles. However, when overdrive is engaged the tranny seems like it can't make up its mind what gear it wants to be in. it will do this at lower speeds in town also, but once you disengage the overdrive. it works fine. Obviously, you cannot run the vehicle at high speeds without the OD. P :confuse: lease help!! No one can figure it out!!

    Larry, is it possible it's not the transmission shifting, but a problem with the torque converter repeatedly locking and unlocking?
  • some one else had mentioned that also. i am not a mechanic. if that is the case, how would they check for that and what kind of $ are we talking about?

    thanks for the response!!

    You need to find an honest trans shop no matter what the issue is. Unfortunately some trans shops will try to sell you a re-build when it's not needed. Take them for a ride to demonstrate the issue. You might want to get more than one diagnosis given that the truck is driveable, but it's also possible that even an honest shop may not be able to give you a price without spedning some $ on labor to dig into it. If the converter is the problem, I think (I'm really not sure) that the trans won't need to be disassembled to repair the converter (although the trans will definitely need to be removed to get to the converter). If the trans needs to be disassembled, given the age/mileage of the truck they will likely suggest a complete trans rebuild (which may be prudent while they have it apart). No matter what the problem is, it sounds like you do need to have it fixed and that more damage will eventually occur if you don't. I have no idea what it might cost, but it sounds unlikely that it will be an inexpensive repair, sorry.
  • thanks so much. ihave been fighting with this for over a year now, and you are thefirst to shed some light as to what it may be. we do have a pretty good trans shop where i live. my next move is an appointment with him.

    thanks so much.

    There is some chance it could be an easy repair, such as an electrical/computer issue if the converter is electronically controlled, but if it is a converter issue it's more likely mechanical. It could also be a problem with the throttle linkage causing the trans to kickdown a gear, but that's not likely. Please let me know what happens, I'm curious.
  • absolutley!

    i will defenatley keep you posted once we find out. again, thanks so much

  • I had the same problem with my 2001 Pathfinder. I went to Nissan and bought a blower motor resistor (aka Fan control Amplifier) for about $45. You need a screwdriver and about 20 minutes from start to finish. My resistor was below the glove box underneath the dash (not behind it as some posts have mentioned - but it may vary from vehicle to vehicle). Its a plug about 2 inches wide by 1/3 inch thick with 2 scews on either side with wires running into the back. Do some google searching for "fan control amplifier" and you'll see diagrams on location and what to look for. Hope this helps.
