Hi all.
I recently purchased a reletavely new car, and am now experiencing a problem with electrics. It all started with a stereo that was installed. The stereo itself runs great, but i now have no SUB tank switch, and the lights no longer work in my instrument panel. Are these two problems linked to the wiring in the Nissan audio system? I have checked ALL fuses, and have deducted that this has only started to occur when the stereo was fitted. If anyone has any info on this, could someone please email me or reply to this post, as I am nearing the departure date on a very long camping trip

If you installed the stereo, try back-tracking the installation.
If it was installed by professional means - take it back!!!

Unfortunately it was installed by a mate, who is a 3rd year AUTO ELEC. I have looked at the wiring, and it seems it has some sort of cross over of loop in the wire converter before it gets to the standard audio system. puzzling. I'll look at it more tomorow i think. Last resort i guess is to get it into nissan and re-wire the audio system....a more expensive option however.

I believe the stereo is wired up incorrectly.
The problem is that the black wire in the Nissan audio loom is not an earth, it is the instrument light wire.
If your mate has wired the earth from the stereo to this black wire you won't have any instrument lights and the fuse will have blown.
The earth wire from the stereo needs to be connected to the body metalwork, a convenient point is the mounting screw that holds the stereo into the dash opening.

Had the same problem with my GU when I had some electrical work done on it. Everything had been done correctly but GU's have some earthing issues. Solution as told to me was to disconnect the battery for a few minutes and this will fix it. And it did, everything came back on line.
