Nissan Sentra Service Manual: Headlamp (hi) circuit

Description

The IPDM E/R (intelligent power distribution module engine room) controls the headlamp high relay based on inputs from the BCM over the CAN communication lines. When the headlamp high relay is energized, power flows through fuses 41 and 42, located in the IPDM E/R. Power then flows to the front combination lamps to the headlamp high beam.

Component Function Check

1.CHECK HEADLAMP (HI) OPERATION

WITHOUT CONSULT


  1. Start IPDM E/R auto active test. Refer to EXL-24, "Diagnosis Description" (with Intelligent Key system) or EXL-28, "Diagnosis Description" (without Intelligent Key system).
  2. Check that the headlamp switches to the high beam.

NOTE:

HI/LO is repeated 1 second each when using the IPDM E/R auto active test.

CONSULT


  1. Select EXTERNAL LAMP of IPDM E/R active test item.
  2. While operating the test items, check that the headlamp switches to the high beam.

HI : Headlamp switches to the high beam.

OFF : Headlamp OFF

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> Headlamp (HI) circuit is normal.

NO >> Refer to EXL-88, "Diagnosis Procedure".

Diagnosis Procedure
