    Heated mirrors!

    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.

    ...Now I feel silly.

    Heated mirrors!

    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

    Gas mileage...

    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

    Shifter locking up at times in park on my 04

    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.

    Gas mileage...

    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.

    Looking to replace Interior Lights with LED's

    I did as well, thanks again!!!

    Looking to replace Interior Lights with LED's

    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....

    skid plates for R50

    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

    Are these Factory Recovery Points?

    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.

    My Pathy project - TPMS Install V2.0

    This is pretty cool. Not expensive either. $100!? So far my Pathfinder has front air bags, side airbags, AWD, and leather heated seats. It does not have , SiruisXM, VDC, or TPMS....but otherwise has everything a modern vehicle has...and I spent $1000 on it. I may add this and a new Stereo and call it good.

    Seat Motors

    Thanks Astrorami - So looks like pulling the seat is in order - I assume its easy enough to figure out which motor is which? I need a new seat cover anyway I can probably do this all in one shot... Mike

    Seat Motors

    My driver side front seat motor is in a stuck position. This is the motor that lowers or raises the front of the seat. The rear lift motor works, as does forward and aft, and rear seat tilt. My memory settings work as does the easy exit function - so overall the system is healthy. I can feel the motor kick when I flip the switch - but it doesn't appear to move. This is somewhat rare, but I don't even know....where to start here. Is there a position relearn maybe? Do the motors go bad? are they easily replacable? Remove the seat and take a look? Again I feel it...try.. so I dont think the switches are bad.... Edit: one other note - looking in the FSM - there are troubleshooting steps for the sunroof, and troubleshooting steps for the "automatic drive positioner" but no steps to troubleshoot the seat itself....

    2001+ Remote swap

    No worries. I ended up purchasing the KBRASTU15 model and it worked fine. My 01 does NOT have the power glass release, so I got the model without the trunk release. I got them from Amazon for $5 a piece (ordered 2) here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XR3FSZZ I followed the video instructions here - you notice he's using the same style remote. This is the model remote both my 2007 Frontier and 2007 Xterra used so I'm comfortable with it, and looks quite a bit better then the old K10 model. Silly I know, but hey! $10!

    2001+ Remote swap

    Hey Guys, My new to me 2001 Pathfinder only came with one remote. It appears that this can be easily rectified from Amazon or Ebay at minimal cost - however - has anyone tried using the newer style remotes from the R51/D40/N40? Looks a heckuva lot more modern....and yes I'd get the one without the trunk release. Thanks Edit - found this thread but doesn't look like anyone moved forward with it.
