My sentra was ok but I do not use it during 2 month and the battery shut completly down. I recharge it, all is ok except my doors lock button on the left and right side stop fonction. The defrost too and the dome light too.
I would like to know the solution to repair it, I read somme problem like that on your site describe. I check fuse inside, the defrost fuse seem to be ok. But I don't know how identify the other fuse for doors locks and dome light.
Thank you for your help.

Was anything crossed when you recharged the battery? Have you checked main fuses under the hood? Have you tried disconnecting the battery for about 30 seconds and then reconnecting it?

Hi I disconnect the battery during fifteen minutes at least, I checked all fuses inside the car and outside in the motor place. I did not found bads fuses. I checked too my light on the ceiling inside and it is ok but it don't light. It seem having a same ploblem for lock doors, defrost and ceiling light. Can you tell me if you have a solution because your site seem ever have this question with exactly the same problem on this car. I checked door lock button and its do not fonction on driver side and passenger side. I'm not sure, but all that happened after the battery shut down diring the winter because the car do not use 2 or three months. Thank you for your help, I wait solution.

I have one more question. Is there any chance that a mouse could have gotten to the vehicle and damaged wiring? This is odd because the locks and dome light are on different power circuits.

No it is impossible beacause it happened during winter, and here we have a very cold winter, no mouse or other animal could eat a cable on the car. I never saw a mouse on my field since 21 years ago.

I need you to check fuse number 13 in the fuse box under the dash. It is a 10 amp fuse that provides power to both the dome light and door locks.

See attached schematic.
