1998 Nissan Questions and Answers

  • Parts Needed to Flat-Tow a 1998 Nissan Frontier 4x4 with a Manual
  • I did some checking and you can safely flat tow your 1998 Nissan Frontier 4x4 with a 5 speed manual transmission as-is without damaging any transmission components. The Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 327-1 that you referenced would also be the correct base plate kit for your vehicle. When choosing a tow bar, you will need one that is compatible with EZ base plates. I recommend the Roadmaster Stowmaster Tow Bar, # RM-501. I have included a link to the installation details and a link...

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 1998 Nissan Frontier
  • For trailer wiring for your 1998 Nissan Frontier I have a much better solution for you than a universal wiring kit like the part # HM48895 that you referenced. You would want the Tow Ready wiring harness part # 118362 instead. This is a custom fit kit that is designed to plug right in line with the taillight wiring of your vehicle and won't require any cutting or splicing.

  • Recommendation For Draw-Tite Hitch on a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder
  • The Draw-Tite Class III hitch for your 1998 Nissan Pathfinder would be the Draw-Tite Class III 2-Inch Hitch, part # 75077. I am including a link to the installation instructions on this hitch. The Draw-Tite Class III 2-Inch Hitch, part # 75186, you have referenced will fit the 1998 to 2004 Nissan Frontier and the 1988 to 1997 Nissan Pickup. It will not fit the 1998 Nissan Pathfinder. If you plan on doing some towing you may be interested in the following products to complete your...

  • Can a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder Tow a 2002 Wildwood Travel Trailer and is a Brake Controller Needed
  • To determine if your 1998 Nissan Pathfinder can pull the 2002 Wildwood travel trailer you will need to consult the vehicle owners manual for the towing capacity of your Pathfinder. If the towing capacity of the Pathfinder is higher than the gross trailer weight when loaded and ready to tow then you can tow it. A brake controller is a good idea if the trailer has electric brakes. Otherwise all the braking will be done by the Pathfinder, wearing out the vehicle brakes quicker, and if you...

  • What Is The Angle For The Trailer Tongue For The Coupler # CA-5400-B
  • The A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Thumb Latch - Black - 2-5/16" Ball - Weld On - 14,000 lbs # CA-5400-B is designed to fit over the frame of your trailer and sit flat. The angle of the trailer frame to the bottom of the coupler shouldn't change as this is not an underslung coupler. They will be parallel. The angle of the trailer frame side to side is most likely what you are asking and it is the standard 50 degree angle.

  • After Cutting Power Mirror Wire Passenger Window on 1998 Nissan Maxima Will Not Work
  • It sounds like the wire that was cut serves more than one function or was not the wire for a power mirror. It is also possible that there was some sort of short and that could have blown the fuse for the power window motor. Reconnect the wire if you can and use the vehicle owners manual to determine the location of the fuse for the power window motor on the affected windows.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brake Lights not Working after 4-way Install on a 1998 Nissan Frontier
  • The first thing I would do is test the circuits of the 4-way on the Tow Ready Wiring Harness part # 118362 with a circuit tester like part # PTW2993. This will tell you if the problem is on the vehicle or the trailer. To see how this would be done check out the video link I attached. If the voltage is there like its supposed to be then you know the problem is on the trailer wiring. The first place to check is the grounds of the light assemblies. A weak ground can cause taillights not...

  • For your 1998 Nissan Frontier the Curt hitch part # C13064 is a confirmed fit but for some vehicles with a few miles on them that may have had aftermarket exhaust installed or had the factory exhaust bent or modified there can need to be some modifications done to get the hitch to fit without exhaust interference.
