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

Description

The IPDM E/R (intelligent power distribution module engine room) controls the headlamp low relay based on inputs from the BCM over the CAN communication lines. When the headlamp low relay is energized, power flows through fuses 51 and 52, located in the IPDM E/R. Power then flows to the front combination lamps to the headlamp low beam.
