Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: Illumination control system

System Diagram

Nissan Maxima. System Diagram

System Description

The illumination lamps operation is dependent upon the position of the lighting switch (combination switch).

When the lighting switch is placed in the 1ST or 2ND position (or if the auto light system is activated) the BCM (body control module) receives input requesting the illumination lamps to illuminate. This input is communicated to the IPDM E/R (intelligent power distribution module engine room) across the CAN communication lines. The CPU (central processing unit) of the IPDM E/R controls the tail lamp relay coil. When energized, this relay directs power to the illumination lamps, which then illuminate.

Component Description

ILLUMINATION OPERATION BY LIGHTING SWITCH

With the lighting switch in the 1ST or 2ND position (or if the auto light system is activated), the BCM receives input requesting the illumination lamps to illuminate. This input is communicated to the IPDM E/R across the CAN communication lines. The CPU of the IPDM E/R controls the tail lamp relay coil which, when energized, directs power

BATTERY SAVER CONTROL

When the lighting switch (combination switch) is in the 1ST or 2ND position and the ignition switch is turned from ON or ACC to OFF, the battery saver control feature is activated. Under this condition, the illumination lamps remain illuminated for 15 minutes unless the lighting switch position is changed. If the lighting switch position is changed, then the illumination lamps are turned off after a 30 second delay. When the lighting switch is turned from OFF to 1ST or 2ND position (or if auto light system is activated) after illumination lamps have been turned off by the battery saver control, the illumination lamps illuminate again.
