Nissan Sentra Service Manual: Headlamp (lo) circuit

Description

The ipdm e/r (intelligent power distribution module engine room) controls the headlamp low relay based on inputs from the bcm over the can communication lines. When the headlamp low relay is energized, power flows through fuses 43 and 44, located in the ipdm e/r. Power then flows to the front combination lamps to the headlamp low beam.

Component function check

1.Check headlamp (lo) 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 is turned on.

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 is turned on.

Lo : headlamp on

Off : headlamp off

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

NO >> Refer to EXL-90, "Diagnosis Procedure".
