2002 Nissan Xterra Questions and Answers


  • 4-Way Trailer Connector Wiring Harness for a 2002 Nissan Xterra
  • For your 2002 Nissan Xterra, you will only need a 4-Way for brake, turn, and running light functions. A 5-pole would add reverse lights which are not legally required on a trailer. The best thing to do is to get the plug and adapter (if needed) that matches your trailer. What you will need for the basic brake, turn, and running lights is Draw-Tite Wiring, # 119178KIT. This converts a 3-wire system (vehicles with separate turn and stop lights) to a basic 2-wire system which is the standard...

  • Can Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier # UF48-979033 Carry 450-lb Bike on 2002 Nissan Xterra
  • In order to be able to use the full 500-lb carrying capacity of the Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier # UF48-979033 you will need to use it with a vehicle and hitch that both have a tongue weight (TW) capacity in excess of its 500-lb rating. If either the vehicle or the hitch have a TW rating below 550-lbs, then you'll start to lose carrying capacity. For example, if your Xterra owner's manual said the TW rating was 600-lbs but your installed hitch has a TW rating of 500-lbs, then the lower...

This kit includes a 7-way socket, wiring, connectors and everything you need to adapt your wiring for 7-way operation. An installation video and article are linked for your reference.

  • Light Kit Wiring Harness to Flat Tow a 2002 Nissan Xterra Behind a Motor Home
  • Before doing any cutting and splicing of the vehicle tail light wiring, you should remove the negative battery cable from the battery to avoid causing errors. There are several lighting kits available for your Nissan Xterra and I have included a link to them for you. If you want to avoid cutting the vehicle wiring altogether then use a bulb and socket kit like # RM-155, or a magnetic light kit such as C-ATL20A. be sure to consult the Xterra owners manual to determine if the vehicle...

  • Kayak Carrier for 3 Kayaks on a 2002 Nissan Xterra
  • First, if your 2002 Nissan Xterra does not already have crossbars that run side to side on the roof you will need to add some. You can use the Thule roof rack using the following parts: Load bars # THLB50 Crossroads foot pack # TH450 Then you could use the Thule Stacker, # TH830. This carrier allows you to mount up to 4 kayaks on their sides. This limits the amount of carriers you would need and conserves space on the crossbars. If your Xterra does have factory crossbars then...

  • Which Cargo Carriers will Allow Access to the Rear Hatch Door on a 2002 Nissan Xterra
  • That depends on the cargo carrier and whether it is loaded or not. Many of the carriers will allow you to open the hatch when empty, but if you have a lot of stuff stacked on the carrier, your cargo may block the door. Now, there are cargo carriers that slide out, tilt down or swing out to allow access to the rear door, even when loaded. Check out the Rola Swinging Enclosed carrier, part # 59109, or the Thule Transporter Combi Carrier, part # TH665C. All of these carriers use...

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 2002 Nissan Xterra
  • If you get under the 2002 Nissan Xterra and find the connector that you see in the install video for the # 118244 you would need first test it with a circuit tester like part # 3808 to see if the pins are active when you apply turn signals on your Xterra. If so, then yes this kit would fit. If not, you would need to hardwire with the part # 119178KIT. The Draw Tite hitch part # 75107 that you referenced as well is the correct hitch for your vehicle. If you wanted to do some towing...

  • Will the Thule Archway Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2002 Nissan Xterra
  • The Thule Archway trunk mount bike rack # TH9010XT will fit your 2002 Nissan Xterra. The rack uses 6 straps to secure to the back of the vehicle. The initial set up will take the longest but after that it should only take a few minutes to get the rack on and probably half that time to remove it. But for the fastest and easiest rack to install or remove I recommend the Raceway 3, # TH9002PRO. I own this rack myself and it is the easiest rack I have used to install or remove. This is because...

  • Will the Sportrack Upshift part # SR4883 Fit a 2002 Nissan Xterra
  • The Sportrack Upshift part # SR4883 that you referenced will fit crossbars that are up to 3-1/2 inches wide. This rack does not have specific fit information based on vehicle info, but if you measure the bars you have and they are less than 3-1/2 inches wide this rack will fit and work well.

  • Troubleshooting a Ground Issue on a Trailer Towed by a 2002 Nissan Xterra
  • It sounds like there is a ground issue on your trailer and when you have the amperage of all of the circuits maxed out (the blinkers, brakes and turn signals on) the bad ground prevents the tail lights from functioning correctly. I would recommend you go over your trailer looking for loose wiring and corrosion and fix as necessary. Also, this unit does not have a converter built into it. Most likely, the signal is converted correctly somewhere in the factory wiring of your vehicle.
