Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: Parking lamp circuit

Description

The IPDM E/R (intelligent power distribution module engine room) controls the tail lamp relay based on inputs from the BCM over the CAN communication lines. When the tail lamp relay is energized, power flows through fuses 46 and 47, located in the IPDM E/R. Power then flows to the front and rear combination lamps, license plate lamps.

Component Function Check

1.CHECK PARKING LAMP OPERATION

WITHOUT CONSULT

  1. Activate IPDM E/R auto active test. Refer to PCS-11, "Diagnosis Description".
  2. Check that the parking lamp is turned ON.

CONSULT

  1. Select "EXTERNAL LAMPS" of IPDM E/R active test item.
  2. While operating the test item, check that the parking lamp is turned ON.

TAIL : Parking lamp ON
OFF : Parking lamp OFF
