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.
