WINDOWS, POWER LOCKS, AND SEAT ADJUSTMENT

2001 Nissan Quest

Electrical problem
2001 Nissan Quest 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 152260 miles

My power seat adjustment, seat heater, windows and power locks stopped working. I thought it was a fuse, but I checked the fuse for the seat heater and it was fine. I can't find a fuse map that will show me which fuses control the other items, but since the seat heater fuse looked fine, I thougt it might be one of the fusible links, but I don't know how to check these.

Hello -

Thanks for the info

Before I did too deep into the wiring, is this the fuse you checked? It is located in the engine compartment, the Battery Junction Box.

Since this is a fuse and hard to see, please use an ohm meter to check to make sure.

This worked great. I replaced the fuse and everything worked. I did not previously know the location of the fuses in the engine compartment.

Thank you for the help.
