Today on this 2009 Nissan Murano we will be installing wiring harness part number 118481. Okay, we are inside the rear cargo area of the Murano here. And the connection points for our wiring harness are going to be located on the inside of the vehicle here. Behind the interior panels on both the driver and passenger sides. To gain access to these connection points we are going to need to do some removing of the interior portions of the vehicle. We need to remove the rear threshold plate here. There are three push pins here at the interior side of the threshold plate that we need to remove. We can do that by simply taking a flat head screwdriver and popping the middle piece up and that will allow the clip to release. From there we can just kind of gently rock back and forth on the threshold plate until the top clips up here release and we can set that side.
Next we can remove the side compartments from the inside of the vehicle. There are two screws at the bottom that are holding it in place. We want to remove the passenger side one as well. Next we just need to remove the fasteners holding the interior side wall in. You can see we have got a tie down hook here that has got a screw in it. We can also remove this tie down here. This one is actually a push rivet. To release it we just want to pick a flat head screwdriver and kind of pry the cap back and that will allow the interior clip to release. And we can just pop it right off there. There is a few in board clips here as well holding it in place. You can get in there with a rivet popper or if you do not have that you could use like a flat head screwdriver to get in there.
Pull away when you here the release. We want to remove the passenger side one as well. We just need to pull that back and up to gain access to the plug. If you look here wrapped in foam tape is our connecting point. What we do is just separate the two by pressing the little pad here at the top and you just disconnect the two. Next we can go ahead and take our harness and start plugging it into place. Over here on the driver side we want to take the connectors with the yellow and brown wires and plug it in line there. I am going to route the wires behind this junction block here. Again we can just plug the harness in line. You will note here on the driver side connector that we have a white wire with a ring terminal on it and this is our ground wire. What we need to do is find a metal surface to mount that to. The back side of the cargo area here is a nice flat surface right here that we can take our self tapping screw that is provided with our wiring harness and mount the ground wire to it. Okay, next we can take the longer lead, the red and green wires, and route it along this rear threshold area back here over to our passenger side where we are going to connect it behind the tail light assembly. Okay, then we can come back over here to the driver side. We are going to take the red wire here that is connected to our modulite box and we are going to connect it to the large black bundle of wire that is provided with our wiring kit. 04:18.
What I am going to do is take and strip back a little bit of the jacketing here on the red wire and we will add a butt connector to it here. We just want to take and crimp that down. And then we will take one of the ends of the 12 gage black wire and connect it to that butt connector as well. Just take some electrical tape and tape that connector up. Next we want to go ahead and take and mount our modulite box to the interior of the vehicle here. And go ahead and adhere that. There is a little lip underneath the underside of where we mounted our brown screw there. I think we can go ahead and secure that there. Next I am going to go ahead and pop the grommet out. What you want to do is take and cut a little hole in the middle where we can that 12 gage black wire through. We will just take and feed it through the hole here. Pull the full length of the wire all the way through and down below. When you have all of the wire down below you can go ahead and re the grommet and then note that the 4-pole is left here. We can do one of two things with that as well. You can either actually enlarge the hole in the grommet there and route the 4-pole down through so that it can be stored underneath the vehicle. Or we could leave it here inside the vehicle and pull it our the rear hatch when we want to use it. I think that is what we are going to do here. I am just going to kind of set it off to the side while I reinstall the components here at the rear of the vehicle.
We just want to make sure we zip tie up any loose wires that we may have left over. Now that we have got the cargo area reassembled we can go underneath the vehicle and go ahead and route our wire up to the battery. When routing the wire you just want to make sure you avoid any possible pinch points or hot spots that could damage the wire. Now that we have got the wire routed up under the hood we just need to go ahead and make our connection to the positive terminal of the battery. You can see we have got a cover here over the positive terminal. We can go ahead and remove that. You can see that we have got three different connection points that we can use. We are going to go ahead and use the rear most one here. Then next we are going to take our fuse holder that is provided with our wiring kit here. What we want to do is go ahead and cut the wire loop in half. On one end we are going to add the ring terminal here. I am just going to connect to the positive side of the battery. The other end we are going to strip back and a butt connector and we are going to connect it to the remaining portion of the 12 gage black wire here. Connect to the battery. And that will kind of give you a general idea of how much wire you can cut back with. And we will strip back a little bit of the jacketing again and make our connections to the butt connector. Okay and then we just want to take a little bit of electrical tape and wrap that connector up. Okay, and last but not least we just want to add the fuse to the fuse holder. That will conclude the installation of wiring harness part number 118481 on a 2009 Nissan Murano. 09:10

Today we are working on 2003 Nissan Murano. We are going to install the Curt T-Connector Wiring Kit, product number 55571. First, we're going to access the rear cargo area of the vehicle. We are going to need to remove all the interior components to get down to the vehicle wiring. Underneath these plastic covers there will be fasteners that hold the mounting points in. Now you can see two more fasteners that are going to hold on the storage door.
Today on this 2006 Nissan Murano we are going to install part number C56105 from Curt, their T connector wiring kit. The first thing we need to do is get access to the inside of the vehicle so we are going to have to open up the hatch and we are going to remove some interior panels to get to the wire harness. This compartment we have to move also so we have to remove these two bolts and that will allow us to take it apart. In order to remove this compartment we also have to loosen up the carpeting on the side here too. We are just going to pop up this cap right here and then we will remove the tie down hook. Now we have got our driver side done, now we will go over to the passenger side and repeat the same process. 00:50
Today we are going to show you the installation of part number 55571 from Curt. We are going to install this on a 2005 Nissan Murano. For this install what we need to do is open up the back hatch and remove some inner panels. Both of the covers on the left and right come off. These compartments will also come out. Now to remove the threshold what you want to do is remove this little panel underneath the hook. There are also 3 plastic releases in the back along with these 3 rivets in the back. Take those out and this whole panel will unsnap and come apart. We need to take this cover off so what we do is work it a little loosely and the pop this handle out and you can pull the whole thing out pretty easily. Then go ahead and pop those pins out of the side paneling so you can pull it off. Now you can see where the harness and the tail light connect.
