Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: Front fog lamp circuit

Description

The IPDM E/R (intelligent power distribution module engine room) controls the front fog lamp relay based on inputs from the BCM over the CAN communication lines. When the front fog lamp relay is energized, power flows from the front fog lamp relay in the IPDM E/R to the front fog lamps.

Component Function Check

1.CHECK FRONT FOG LAMP OPERATION

1. Activate IPDM E/R auto active test. Refer to PCS-14, "Diagnosis Description".

2. Check that the front fog lamp is turned ON.

1. Select "EXTERNAL LAMP" of IPDM E/R active test item.

2. With operating the test items, Check that the front fog lamp is turned ON.

Is the front fog lamp turned ON? YES >> Front fog lamp circuit is normal.

2. Disconnect the front fog lamp connector.

3. Turn the ignition switch ON.

4. Select "EXTERNAL LAMP" of IPDM E/R active test item.

5. With EXTERNAL LAMP ON, check the voltage between the fog lamp connector and ground.

Is battery voltage present? YES >> GO TO 4

NO >> GO TO 3

3.CHECK FRONT FOG LAMP OPEN CIRCUIT

1. Turn the ignition switch OFF.

2. Disconnect IPDM E/R connector.
