Today we are going to be installing wiring harness part number 118244 on a 2004 Nissan Xterra. We are underneath the vehicle. With the spare tire removed we are taking a look at the passengers side frame rail here. You can see right at the top of the frame rail we have got this plug with a cap on it. That is the plug that we are going to need to plug our harness into. I am just going to remove the cap, and I am just going to push the button in on the top here and remove the cap. And then we are just simply going to plug our harness into that and secure any of the extra wires that you may have on the 4-pole, using some zip-ties. And you do want to test all functions to make sure that you are getting power on all active ports. And this will conclude the installation of wiring harness part number 118244 on a 2004 Nissan Xterra.
Today we have a 2011 Nissan Xterra and we will be installing the Tow Ready T-One Connector Part Number 118525. After removing the contents from the package, you will notice you have three relays. These three relays need to be plugged in to the jumper wire also included in the packaging. After plugging the three relays in, we are now ready to move inside the vehicle. Here on the passenger side, we will need to remove the passenger side kick panel. To do this, we will first need to remove the passenger side floor seal by pulling upwards on the floor seal and then out towards the rear of the vehicle.
Today on this 2011 Nissan Xterra we are going to be installing the modulite wiring harness part number 119176KIT. We are going to start the installation off underneath the vehicle and the Xterra is a little unique in that it has a partial tow package already installed on it so we are actually going to use the wires for that to install the modulite kit. Come over to the driver side of the vehicle near the bumper area and follow the frame forward to locate this open ended port right here and this is the tow package port so what I am going to do is pull it off of its retaining clips to give me a little bit more work room. What I have done is cut back some of the tape already to expose the wires. 00:44
To give you an idea of what were going to do, typically the modulite and other hardwired modules will get wired usually behind the tail lights. Most of the time you get four functions on the left hand side and the one right turn function on the right hand side. However on Nissans they actually run part of there tow harness here and this is the plug right here. Whats active on it only is the left and right hand turn and the brake signal. The wire is ran for the running light, but is not active. To make it active you have to buy the whole towing kit from the manufacturer OEM. What were going to do is show you a way to work around that where you do not have to run behind the lights and just basically fill in the blanks with the tow package. The First thing we need to do is mount our wiring module. It seems a pretty safe spot would be along the side of the hitch right here.
