      Yes it could be. Trace the wires/connection of your door. When you said your fuses and relays seem ok, did you check it (visually and/or by a tester)?

      Open the hood of your turck and locate the retaining pins on the radiator support right behind the headlight assembly. Turn the outer pin outward and the inner pin inward then pull them both up and remove them.

      Hold the headlight assembly on either side then slide it forward, removing it from the truck. Release the locking tab on the electrical connector and pull it off the bulb socket. Turn the bulb and socket counterclockwise then pull it straight out of the headlight housing.

      Insert a new bulb and socket into the headlight assembly then turn it clockwise to lock it in place. Push the electrical connector onto the bulb socket until the locking tab engages.

      Slide the headlight assembly back into the front of the truck then install the locking pins into the radiator support. Push them down into the headlight assembly and turn the pins to lock them in place. Turn the outer pin inward, and the inner pin outward.

      Move to the opposite side of the truck and repeat the process to change the bulbs in the second headlight assembly. Turn the headlights on to verify that they are working correctly.

      I suggest that you take your vehicle to a service shop. You can use the Find a Shop feature of AutoMD to locate the shops near you and see/compare their labor rate per hour.

    How do you replace the passenger door handle
    • Gran Turismo 5

      Whether its interior or exterior, you have to remove the interior door handle.

      Place a flathead screwdriver between the door panel and the door lock trim, then pop off the door lock using the flathead screwdriver as leverage. Repeat this process for the plastic trim ring that goes around the interior door handle. Then use the flathead screwdriver to pop off the rubber grommet at the edge of the door, by the door latch and behind the door panel. This process is going to expose screws and bolts necessary to remove the handle and door panel.

      Unbolt the door panel from the door using the 1/4-inch ratchet and socket. There is a bolt behind the door lock trim, one under the arm rest and another along the bottom of the door. Pull off the plastic trim panel opposite the side mirror using your hands to release the clips. Push up on the door panel then pull the panel off of the door and place it to the side.

      Lean inside the door panel and unbolt the door handle from the door using an open-end wrench. Then unbolt the door handle through the hole where you removed the grommet in step 1 using a 1/4-inch ratchet and socket.

      Pull the door handle out of the door and push the plastic clips off of the door handle, releasing the linkage between the latch and the door handle. These are color-coded plastic tabs that swing off of the handle and release the metal rod linkage.

      Hold the replacement door handle outside of the door and reconnect the linkage using your hands. Then place the handle inside of the door and bolt it back in place using an open-end wrench and a 1/4-inch ratchet and socket. Swing the door open and shut to test that the handle works correctly.

      Reinstall the door panel in the reverse order.

    What can cause water to leak/pool in the bottom of the driver's side floor?
    It happens mostly when it rains, sometimes. It has no smell, so it's only water. I've had the windshield replaced, been told there's nothing wrong with the seals on the door, resealed the mirror. What else could it be?
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Hi Tanya, water leak could come from the front, your firewall at the back of the engine maybe stripped. You need to check underhood for that.

    Why do I have poor air flow thru dash vents and good flow at floor vent?
    The air flow / pressure seems good at heater floor vent but, the air flow at all dash vents is very weak. The defrost vents seem to have better pressure than dash vents also.
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Hi Steve, it seems that it was clogged that is why it does not distributing air pressure properly. And if you have a separate blower fans for the dash and floor vents, i assume that your fan is defective.

      Probably the door lock actuator. You can pick one up for about $50 if memory serves me. Replacing is fairly easy as well. Remove door panel, locate and remove the old, reinstall the new, reinstall the door panel. Hope this helps!

      Most likely a failed door lock actuator. You can pick up a new one for about $50 if memory serves me. Replacing it is fairly straight forward for the mechanically inclined. Remove door panel, locate and remove actuator, install new one, install door panel. Hope this helps!

    Rear fender damage, scratched paint job, broken tail light
    my rear tire tread came off and it bent under my lower fender behind my tire, bent the brackets, messed up my paint job, broke my tail light and I will have to change the whole side panel and tail light because of this. Also will need to paint the panel. My question ...

      You're probably going to want to submit it to insurance if possible. I'm not an adjuster by any means but based on personal experience you're looking at a minimum of $1,500. Sorry to hear (and deliver) the bad news :-/

    Why does my delay headlights come on in daylight, but not at night?
    This problem started approximately 2 mo. ago. start the vehicle, headlights automatically come on but once it starts getting dark the headlamps do not work. You have to hold lever to use bright lights at night, Release lever lights go out.

      You might be able to score a replacement out of a parts yard for a reasonable amount of money... otherwise break out the sewing kit my friend.

      Bad driver side blend door actuator. You have dual-zone climate control?

      I do have dual zone, where is the actuator located and how hard is it ti DYI?
    • HouseCallAuto

      It is not difficult at all. Since it is the driver side actuator that is bad the actuator should be able to be seen from under the driver side instrument panel area after removing the insulator panel. You should have a penlight type flashlight and try to look for the actuator - here is the actuator you need >>

      You will now be able to find it more toward the driver side cause it controls the blend door on that side. Be careful, there are two of these - one for the driver side and one for the pass side. Once you find it and can get tools to it it is an easy replacement. Take your time, get as comfortable as you can cause you will be in an awkward position in front of the driver seat all twisted. One more thing also, there may be a fault code stored for this bad actuator and it may be necessary to clear the fault codes or the new actuator might not work.
