Nissan Sentra Service 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 fuse 36, located in the ipdm e/r. Power then flows to the front and rear combination lamps, license plate lamps.

Component function check

1.Check parking lamp operation

Without consult


  1. Activate 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 parking lamp is turned on.

Without consult


  1. Select external lamp of ipdm e/r active test item
  2. While operating the test items, check that the parking lamp is turned on.
