Nissan Pathfinder Questions

  • You can convert surge brakes to an electric over hydraulic braking system. To do this, you will need an electric over hydraulic actuator and a brake controller. For an electric over hydraulic actuator, I recommend looking at the Carlisle HydraStar units. If your trailer has drum brakes, you will want part # HBA-10. If your trailer has disc brakes, then you will want part # HBA16. I have also attached a link to all of our electric over hydraulic actuators for you to check out...

  • It is possible to install a transmission cooler and bypass the factory transmission cooler on your 2006 Nissan Pathfinder. This is not recommended by manufacturers, but it is possible. You will want to get the largest transmission cooler that will fit your vehicle. I do not know the area that you have available to install a transmission cooler, but if it will fit, I would recommend the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit, part # D13504. The overall dimensions...

  • The 4.80 X 12 is the size of the tire and the 4 on 4 is the bolt pattern of the wheel. The bolt pattern means it is a 4 hole wheel and the distance from the center of one hole to the center of the hole directly across from it is 4 inches. Any wheel with a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern and a large enough pilot hole diameter will fit your trailer. You will need to check the weight capacity of your axle and get the correct tire size that will be rated above the weight capacity of your...

  • According to my research, your vehicle is capable of towing 6000 lb Trailer Weight/ 600 lb Tongue weight if it is equipped with the V6 motor, or 7000 lb Trailer/ 700 lb tongue weight if equipped with the V8 motor. The use of a weight distribution system will not increase these towing capacities. For the purposes of choosing a weight distribution system, you will need to determine the fully loaded and ready to tow trailer and tongue weight. The weight of anything stored in the...

  • The Tekonsha Brake Controller Wiring Adapter, part # 3050-P is indeed compatible with your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. The adapter is compatible with Tekonsha Brake Controllers like the Prodigy P2, part # 90885 or the P3, part # 90195. The harness will plug into the connector located near the top of the emergency brake pedal. Look for a wiring harness with a white tag on it that that reads Trailer Brake Connection.

  • You could wire the Tow Ready Adapter 4 Pole to 7 Pole # 30717 and just have the light functions on your tow vehicle without connecting the other wires. But I would be very cautious about not doing so for several reasons. The first reason is safety. The general rule for towing trailers with brakes, is that if the Gross Trailer Weight is half of the Gross Vehicle Weight, it is recommended to use a brake controller and have brakes on the trailer. Not being able to activate...

  • The Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit w/Barb Inlets - Class III - Efficient, item # D13502, could be used to replace the original ATF cooler in the radiator on your 2005 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4.0 liter. I would recommend four things. First, measure to be sure that the cooler you select will fit in front of the radiator or air conditioning condenser on your vehicle. Second, select the largest capacity cooler that will fit in this area. The largest 8000 series...

  • There are some large rooftop cargo baskets that can mount to your roof side rails without the need for crossbars. Surco offers their 60 x 50 x 5 inch # SPS5060-1101, which weighs 34 lbs, and the 50 x 45 x 5 inch version # SPS4550-1101, which weighs 32 lbs. I have included a link to our department page for all of our cargo baskets where you can see offerings from ten different brands. Most other roof baskets require crossbars for their installation. Since you plan to transport...

  • Due to the profile of the Curt Class III trailer hitch # C13126, most of the hitch crossbar is recessed under the rear fascia of a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. Therefore this hitch does not include a mounting location for trailer wiring. Since there is limited space on the hitch crossbar, a mounting bracket is not included on the hitch. Additionally, the rear fascia has to be trimmed to complete the installation of this hitch. I have included a photos showing this hitch installed...

  • On your 2008 Nissan Pathfinder the Towing Relay 2 fuse is the brown relay, like the one included in kit # C57000.This relay will activate the 12-volt power circuit on the 7-Way connector. This relay is located in a fuse box under the hood, next to the vehicles battery. Next to the brown relay will be Towing Relay 1 (blue) which should be installed to activate the running lights and signal for the 4-pin towing harness. To charge a trailer battery from the 7-Way you should...

  • There could be a couple of issues with the trailer wiring on your 1996 Nissan Pathfinder. Since you have determine that the trailer lights work on other vehicles, we will need to look at the vehicle for the problem. My first instinct is that you have a bad ground connection. The CURT wiring harness you are using has a white ground wire with a ring terminal on the end. This ring terminal will need to be attached to a clean, bare metal surface. If there is corrosion or paint...

  • According to my research, the Jayco 1007 has a dry weight of 1820 lbs and a GVWR of 2550. This means that with empty propane and water tanks and completely empty of gear, your tent trailer weighs 1820 lbs. Once tanks are full and gear is added, the trailer can weigh no more than 2550 lbs. This places your tongue weight somewhere in the range between 200-400 lbs. To this figure, you will need to add the weight of any gear stowed behind the rear axle in the cargo area of your Pathfinder. Weight...

  • If your 2011 Nissan Pathfinder has a factory installed 7-Way trailer connector, all you would need is the brake controller and the wiring harness like the Tekonsha P2, # 90885 and harness #3050-P. If the vehicle does not have a trailer connector, you would need to use T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118263, and then install a 4 and 7 Way Installation Kit, # ETBC7. I have included a link to the installation details for the 118399 harness for reference. When installing an ETBC7,...

  • Although we have not yet had the opportunity to install the # 118525 trailer wiring harness on a 2012 Pathfinder, my contact at Tow Ready tells me that the only difference in the installation between the Pathfinder, Xterra and Frontier is the location of the connector at the rear of the vehicle that the 4-pole connector would plug into. The procedure for installing the remainder of the harness and the relays behind the kick panel in the passenger side front seat foot well...

  • We have oodles of hitch covers. If you are looking for something specific, I have included a link to our hitch cover main page. There you will find all of the categories for hitch covers in different sizes and materials. We do have some Nissan logo covers but none that say Pathfinder. Take a look at the black and chrome cover # CR-690 that fits 1-1/4 or 2 inch trailer hitches. For trailer hitch covers like these, I recommend getting a looking hitch pin to deter theft of the...

  • I do have some information that will help determine if the Evolution 1800 cargo box will fit on your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder, however, the Evolution cargo boxes were discontinued by Thule so they do not have any fit information for this cargo box and your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. The mounting hardware that came with the Evolution cargo boxes will fit on crossbars up to 3-1/4 inches wide and up to 2 inches tall. The minimum crossbar spread that is acceptable for the Evolution...

  • You can certainly replace all of the incandescent bulbs in your tail lights and marker lights with LED bulbs. You will simply need to determine what type of bulb each light will require and purchase a compatible LED bulb. If you would like to tell me the types of bulbs that are in your trailer lights, I would be happy to make some recommendations. LED bulbs offer many improvements over incandescent (standard) bulbs. First, they are typically brighter than incandescent bulbs....

  • I spoke with my contact at Tow Ready and he said there should be two mating connectors for the gray and black connectors on the inboard side of the driver side frame rail near the spare tire. He did tell me that Nissan is notorious for moving the wiring on their vehicles and the last information he received was that the connectors were on the top part of the driver side frame rail at the spare tire. The connectors are typically pretty visible and should be easy to spot. Photo...

  • You can click on the link provided to see all tire chains suitable for the 235/65-18 tires on your 2014 Nissan Pathfinder. I suggest you check your owner's manual just in case Nissan has any guidance or restrictions regarding tire chain use on your vehicle. Some vehicles are limited to low-profile S-Class chains. Once you know you're clear to install chains you can select from the options shown on the link. Chains that are easy to install and remove will tend to get used more...

  • If your inclination is that you are having ground issues then you most likely do. Ground problems are the most common problem with trailer wiring. I would recommend grounding the white wire on the 3-Wire Pigtail, item # A45PB, to the trailer frame. If the mounting location for the # ST70RB Oval Trailer Stop, Turn and Tail Light, is not welded to the trailer frame I would recommend attaching the white wire directly to the trailer frame rather than a bolted or riveted on mounting...
