    Before I throw parts at my 02 it think first I should chase all chassis grounds. However since I am currently with out a shop to work in( Northern Ontario winter outdoors is all I have.). Can anyone out there give me locations of the chassis grounds instead of rolling around in the snow searching for them. I am having random electrical gremlins, signal lights that one time will not flash, the next time work perfect, and other random odd electrical behavior. These are also it seems temperature sensitive, so this leads me to some old wise advice, check your grounds. Since yesterday’s temp was -24c it would speed up process knowing where to find these grounds before rolling in said snow, and ice. Thanks in advance:)

    Heya OldFart, first thing I would look into is downloading the Xterra Service Manual. In the EL Chapter, this will show you all the grounds for the whole vehicle. The Service Manual was once found on some of the other Nissan Forums out there, but I think it has since been removed due to Nissan Legal contacting the site owners. I may be wrong about that though.

    I have a copy of the service manual. I could email it to you.

    That would be great, appreciated. I have down loaded it as a pdf already, however I can no longer find the file lol. It seems the site doesn’t come up anymore either lol? Checked my browser history as well, but since I have spent a lot of time being curious for the life of me cannot recognize which source it was from that. But I did get some quality shop time, found grounds at rear of X, at fuel tank, under dash, under hood( including from battery to body/engine),but could not find engine block to frame. So it would come in handy in future, thanks.

    I also have the 02 FSM if you need it. I cataloged a few different ones when it was announced that niccoclub was no longer going to be able to host them.
