Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: Key cylinder switch

Description

For vehicles equipped with LH and RH anti-pinch system, the main power window and door lock/unlock switch detects condition of the door key cylinder switch and transmits to BCM as the LOCK or UNLOCK signal.

For vehicles equipped with LH anti-pinch system only, the front door lock assembly LH (key cylinder switch) transmits the LOCK or UNLOCK signal directly to the BCM.
