2010 Versa-Wiring Diagrams?
New member needing wiring diagrams for a 2010 Nissan versa, base model. It has the 1.6L I4 and 4 speed auto transmission.
BACKGROUND: This is a vehicle my son just purchased about two weeks ago to replace his PT Cruiser that was totaled by a careless (young) driver. It has been running perfectly with no MIL, no hesitation or any unusual noises. The car has just over 140K miles. It is the four-door base model.
ISSUE: Earlier this week my son called to inform me of a "No Crank" condition. I had him run through all of the usual checks (battery voltage, condition of terminals, etc.) with no obvious issue. This led me to believe that it was a security system issue. I had him remove the positive terminal and ground it out. Then had him turn on lights to help dissipate any remaining voltage in the capacitors. He reconnected the battery and the issue was not resolved.
DISCOVERY ITEM: I was not able to visit him until this weekend (45 miles away). Luckily the problem was immediately obvious to me when I opened the driver's door. On the floor I noticed a U-shaped piece of wire with bare ends (aluminum, no less!). I also noted a plastic male wiring connector with scotch tape around the exposed end. I quickly figured out that the jumper had fallen out of this connector. After carefully comparing the shape of the jumper to the pinouts of the connector, I determined that the blue wire need to be jumpered to the violet (purple) wire. After reinserting the jumper the car started and ran fine. The connector was in the vicinity of the kick panel, so I figure he must have knocked it loose with his foot when entering the vehicle. I wanted to make sure that this issue didn't disable the car again, so I used some scotch locks and a new jumper wire (with copper conductors) to jumper the blue wire to purple.
QUESTION/REQUEST: I would love to know:
1. - What function was jumpered-out (i.e. Security Immobilization, Park/Neutral Safety Switch, etc.)?
2. - Where is the female side to this connector?
3. - What other functions are disabled due to this connector not being made-up?
4. - Can somebody point me to an online source for a wiring diagram for this vehicle so that I can possible answer questions 1 through 3, above?
MORE INFORMATION: The male wiring connector I described has five wires. It is a flat five-pin connector and is a translucent/white color. Going from my aging memory, the colors are Violet (purple), Black, Pink, red and Blue. The wire bundle it is connected to is pretty long and it was dangling down by the driver's side kick panel. I can visualize it either running up under the steering column, or over behind the kick panel. Or, it could even connect way up behind the dash somewhere. Right now it is looped up and securely zip-tied to the metal brace to the right of the fuse panel. The OBD-II port has also needs to be refastened into its space. I want to take care of those issues when he comes over for us to knock out a fluid change sometime this week (oil/filter, transmission fluid pan drain/fill, check coolant spec. gravity, etc.).
It was hard for me to wriggle up under the dash area since the car was parked along the curb of a fairly busy street - well that and I was still sore and stiff from just doing a tuneup on our '02 Nissan XTerra (if you've never changed plugs on the 3.3L V-6, you won't understand). Once I get the car into my shop on ramps, and with a full selection of tools, I should be able to trace the destination of the wiring bundle that is unhooked. A "map" would helps me quite a bit - hence my request for a wiring diagram.
Another issue, and I'm not sure if it's related, is that the TPMS light is on. At first I just chalked it up to a bad battery on one of the tire transmitters, but now...….
