Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: Headlamp (HI) circuit

Description

The IPDM E/R (intelligent power distribution module engine room) controls the headlamp high relay based on inputs from the BCM over the CAN communication lines. When the headlamp high relay is energized, power flows through fuses 48 and 49, located in the IPDM E/R. Power then flows to the front combination lamps to the headlamp high beam.

Component Function Check

1.CHECK HEADLAMP (HI) OPERATION

WITHOUT CONSULT

  1. Start IPDM E/R auto active test. Refer to PCS-11, "Diagnosis Description".
  2. Check that the headlamp switches to the high beam.

NOTE: HI/LO is repeated 1 second each when using the IPDM E/R auto active test.

CONSULT

  1. Select "EXTERNAL LAMPS" of IPDM E/R active test item.
  2. While operating the test item, check that the headlamp switches to the high beam.

HI : Headlamp switches to the high beam.
OFF : Headlamp OFF

Diagnosis Procedure

1.CHECK HEADLAMP (HI) FUSES

  1. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
  2. Check that the following fuses are not open.
