Please someone help
I have checked everything expect that illusive relay as I can't seem to locate it. Any pics or diagrams would be very helpful!!!
Apparently there is a relay socket under the dash just to the left of the steering column. Since your vehicle did not have the towing package installed at the factory this relay was not installed and will be needed to power the tail lights at the 7-Way and 4-way connector. The under dash connector will have 4 wires going into it. They will be Red/light blue, brown, black and red. This relay will be the same as the blue relays used under the hood. I would use one of these relays to test the connector under the dash and then purchase a new one for the under hood install. These relays are only available by themselves from the Nissan dealer at this time.
The blue relays that are installed under the hood activate the left and right turn/brake signals and the brown under hood relay activates the 12 volt power for the trailer connector.
You may also have a tow package fuse missing in the fuse box under the hood. I would use the legend under the fuse box cover and check to see if there are any open slots that are listed for towing and tail lights. From the information I was able to obtain there is a 10 amp tail light fuse in location 36. If so you may need to install a fuse to get the tail lights to work on the towing package.
