I have a 1995 xe 4x4 with an automatic. From what I have been able to find on this forum my pathy has the optional dealer installed factory alarm. I have an on/off "contact" switch on the center console, and I can deactivate it with the key fob (which says pathfinder) I hate the alarm system with a deep, burning passion!!! Twice the thing has left me stranded in the middle of nowhere. It seems to have a starter kill switch, which appears to be getting randomly activated. Some times all I have to do is use the key fob to be able to start it. Other times I have to disconnect and reconnect the battery, and then it will work. On yet other occasions I just need to wait a few hours. There appears to be no pattern to it.
How do I fix this? Wiring and electrical work is my weak point. Is there something wrong with the alarm? The ignition? Is there any easy way to disable the alarm. I really do not need it (or the key fob), particullary if it is going to keep doing this. Should I just take it to my loacal Nissan Dealer and ask them to remove it? If this happens again my wife is threatening to make me sell the pathy and buy a 4runner. Help! Thanks.
