Try this. We have found that the ECM relay is going out in the IPDM. If you switch it with the fog lamp relay it will usually get you to the nearest dealer to get it taken care of. You can not get the relay by its self. It comes with the IPDM.

It seems we are seeing this more often. This also works on the xterra, pathfinder & armadas.

Is the relay for the IPDM the same as the fog light relay because if the IPDM relay is unobtainable but the fog light relay is readily available then why get an IPDM?

I dont think you can get the foglamp relay either. All trucks come with the relays already there even if you dont have fog lamps.

Great info, Jody!
This could get a stranded member back on the road.
I have attached a larger picture so the relays can be seen easier.

Does a dying relay give any symptoms or does the truck just croak?

No relays available? Really? Dumb.

(Awesome info BTW)

Does all Titans have fog light relays even if they don't have the fog lights?

This is a troubling bit of information. As I read this it seems that Nissan has chosen to make the repairs of something as simple as a faulty relay require the complete replacement of the entire board?? So if my fog lights go out, I have to buy the entire board?
I think I'd just source a replacement relay off the internet.

Interesting.. I'll find out if this works on the Frontiers too.. Since he said Pathy/Xterra, hopefully he means gen2!

We did an experament to see if replacing the relay would be a permanent fix. The first relay lasted 3 days & the second lasted 4 days. There is something in the IPDM that is burning up the relays. This is only a temporary fix till you can get another IPDM.
