  1. Thanks for the P/Ns. Somebody had replaced the terminal on my truck and the fusible links are all sorts of barely hanging on/bent out of shape...I may just order then for piece of mind that mine wont snap off lol.
  2. Thank you! That was what I needed to see! Looks like 34950-5W000 is the right exact switch for my model (VQ35 A/4WD Fed Emissions 2001), but about the same price. Ouch. https://www.nissanpartsdeal.com/parts/nissan-shift-lock-sole~34950-5w000.html?Make=Nissan&Model=Pathfinder&Year=2001&Submodel=&Filter=(1=W;3=USA;6=AT)&Location=auto-transmission-control-device,349_B003,34950M Guess I'll go try a junkyard one or four....
  3. Hey, thanks for the reply. I am pretty familiar with the whole setup, as I swapped a entire R50 console into my WD21 (with shifter!). I've already had the trim off as part of the diagnosis - you can see the solinoid start to actuate upon brake press, so I think my brake switch/wiring is ok. Being this is a DD for my GF, I am not interested in bypassing safety features at this time, so am just looking to replace.
  4. Hey guys, my shift interlock is going and its becoming a problem (GF Drives the truck). This is the solenoid that allows the shifter to move after the brake pedal is depressed. Especially when its cold out, you can hear it click/try but it doesn't actually completely move the blocking mechanism. Does anyone know the P/N of this? Is there an aftermarket replacement? Im not even finding the OEM part on Courtesy Nissan or Rockauto. I can certainly go pull one from a JY - but my understanding is this was somewhat common, and I'm not convinced a 200,000 mile JY one is going to be any better.
  5. Its all self contained, just like the clock. Simply connects to power and a air temp sensor in the front grill. Connector is like 6 wires. My 2001 had a TSB for being persistently 8F too low. I bought a new one out of a 2003 at the Junk Yard for about $8, and it fixed the low temperature display problem.
  6. I feel slightly less stupid now. I realized I only ever really drive it at night (its her car, so I drive it rarely), and the button is not lit (my bulb must be out). FYI We got 3-4 inches of snow today and the mirrors are definitely heated.
  7. Stupid question - where is the rear defrost button on a 01 R50 with auto AC? I only see a front one on the Auto AC Headunit
  8. We're still doing about 13, maybe 13.5 on premium at about 4300ft elevation. Early VQs were thirsty beasts. I'll do spark plugs and the maf cleaning stuff at 200k (194k now) and we'll see if it improves
  9. Do you have the part number for the solenoid? I'm struggling to find it - Mine is balky when cold - Almost stranded the GF this morning...I can get it from a JY but sounds like its a pretty common problem so a aftermarket one may be better.
  10. We do about 13.5 mpg around town - but lots of short trips. I had forgotten how thirsty the early VQ's are. My 2005 Frontier (VQ40) got a solid 17mpg around town, heh.
  11. Thanks guys. The interior is AMAZINGLY dark at night compared to newer vehicles. The black leather doesn't help. I also find it interesting that the map lights don't come on with the dome lights. This is no longer the case in modern vehicles. It would require some diodes, but it may be worth running a line from the dome light up to power them when the door opens. We'll see if some nice 4100k LEDs in the domes help....
  12. I find it really interesting that they didn't make skids for R50 - it was sold and used in the bush for multiple countries - maybe just not the US? Do the sfcreations skids have oil changing access holes for the engine, trans,and transfer? that's a must for me.....most auto shops will lose/screw up anything that has to come off. My front plastic air dam only has two bolts holding it in heh
  13. Yes, those are the factory recovery points. I absolutely would pull a fully stuck mud bound Pathfinder using them. That's what they are for. That's what they are engineered to do. Nissan didn't put them there for decoration. Ever look at a freight tie down on a car? Much weaker and designed to only be pulled at a downward angle, and typically wont clear the bumpers (front or rear) On the R50 - at least the passanger one has a significant wrap around bracket that is bolted multiple times laterally into the front of the boxed section of the "frame". This is a key structural member that also takes the entire bumper load. These trucks are unibody. If you can't pull there, you can't pull them anywhere. Tow away.
