Does anyone know where to find a correct fuse diagram? The sticker in the fuse boxes can't be right... there's things listed there that don't even have a fuse in it...

I just came inside, and it's too cold to go out again, so here's the best I can do. Look under the hood on the driver's side. There is a plastic box, maybe 5" square. If you can open that, I trhink there are more fuses in there.

I remember when every car had just one fuse box. Now they have three, scattered inside and out - and they're all usually hard to get at. Why did they have to make that fuse panel on the left side of the dash so hard to open?

Look on page 0-10 of the Owner's Manual.

I know where the fuse boxes are located... lol... what I am looking for is a correct diagram of which fuse serves what purpose.
Looked through the manual several times, there doesn't seem to be a diagram like that in there.

You might try the Shop Manual that used to available somewhere on this site for download. Or, you can get one from your Nissan dealer for $225 on a disc. I like the free version - same info.

You are correct the diagram on the little panel is way off, I noticed that when trying to find the fuse for my horn.
Horn is listed but no fuse was in its location.

Downloading the shop manual now... all 69MB of it... will let you know if it's in there... sounds like you need it for your air horn.

I did a search for "Shop Manual" and came up with this thread:
http://www.nissancubelife.com/forum/index.php?topic=1719.0

The link in there is still valid. :yes:

The only issue is now that the zip I downloaded had like 40 or so smaller pdf's in, none of them named like anything... (file names like ec.pdf, lu.pdf mean nothing to me...) :(

so I will have to open every one of them and rename them for future reference. :sick:

I'm glad you found that link. Somewhere there is a list of what the abbreviations mean. The electrical info is called Power Supply and Ground, so look for an abbreviation like that. When I downloaded mine, I renamed them from letters to actual words - makes a big difference.

Neither did I... but I think I might have the info I need to do what I want to do.
Everyone seems hell bent on the fog light DRL's... I personally would like to have my front park and side markers on as DRL's. The electrical diagrams in the shop manual might give me enough information to do that.

On my Eclipse, there was a simple mod published, a jumper on the fuse box, that made fog lights DRLs. Waiting for that for my cube. I've noticed the cube's fog lights are not near as bright or well-aimed as my Eclipse, where they actually lit up a good area in front of you and to the side. Pretty much for show, but probably OK for DRLs.

Gang...

No, don't rename the files.

Just start with fwd.pdf, and if you leave everything alone, you can just click on the links and it will load all the correct files for you. This includes if they reference another section in a different file from the section you are in. You don't have to know which file is what.

Cheers!

That is a great feature of the electronic manual. As Dang said, if you are in Section 1 and see a reference to Section 5, you just clkick on the link and go straight there - much better than a paper book. And, of course, you can print whatever you want and take it to the car.
