XTerra - minor electrical issue

Postby Rhino » Thu May 16, 2019 11:13 am

My XTerra has 3 electrical "ports" (not sure if that's the right word - the kind people used to put cigarette lighters in) and the one by the back gate konked out on me the other day. I had just plugged in my portable compressor to top up the tires when it chugged a couple of times, then died. Initially, I thought it was the compressor but it worked fine in the port on the dash so it's clearly the port at the back that's at fault.

How do I get this port working again? I suppose the first thing to do is to check for a blown fuse but I can't make head nor tails out of the wiring diagrams in the manual. I'm not sure where that fuse is or if a fuse is even a plausible theory given that one of the other ports works fine (I haven't tried the one in the storage thing between the front seats). Would all three ports share a fuse or are they all on separate fuses? What would make the port fail if not a fuse?

Check fuse 26 i believe from the wiring diagram. the rear power socket is constant power and that looks like the only power socket that doesn't run through the ignition switch/relay. Also check fuse 5 and fuse 7 those are the accessory powered sockets.

I'm still trying to get a bit of spare time so that I can get over to my friend's place. He'll have the necessary tools and skill to help me remove the fuses without breaking them and to test them properly. I have neither. I hope to get to that point in the next few weeks....

I have a couple of additional small jobs that I want to work through with him at the same time, including the sensor that supposedly only activates the backup lights when you're in reverse, and a faulty tire pressure sensor that keeps my TPMS light on. He has a hoist to access the sensor and knows how to determine which of the tire sensors is the faulty one and, I assume, help me swap it out. (Actually, I'm hoping he can show me how to do all three jobs correctly since I really don't know how to do any of them myself.)

probably “something “. Is your friend too busy? We don’t want you to get too long a list on the to do list.
