Hi everyone, I’m new to Titantalk and a first time Titan owner. It’s a great ride with plenty of power. I just got my 2007 king cab SE model 4x4 off road. It has 187k on it and I want to run it to 300k. Here’s a list of issues: when I test drove it the 4x4 worked, now the little light in between the front and rear wheels on the icone is all that lights, the front wheels don’t light up for 4wd hi. 4lo just keeps flashing and never locks. I’ve tried all variations like driving slow or in park or neutral. Also, the back up sensor doesn’t work, horn is intermittent, no cruise control or steering wheel radio controls, and the manual transmission shift option doesn’t work. Do I have some kind of electrical issue where all of these things are connected? Lights on the dash are airbag light and tire pressure light. There are no other lights while driving and they all come on when I first turn the key. I’m ok with fixing some issues 4x4 is most important. Got it for $3,800 and the frame and body are extremely clean which is great for me in upstate NY. Any help with these I really appreciate. Thanks!

"Do I have some kind of electrical issue where all of these things are connected?"

You seem to have some of the symptoms of a broken clock spring cable in the steering wheel. Reference the service manual and proceed with due caution to avoid getting hit in the face with an air bag. You can find other examples of the same problem by searching the forum.

This could also be a problem with one of the wheel speed sensors. I believe that if you get the codes pulled at an auto parts store, it should pinpoint which sensor is the problem. Unfortunately, the entire bearing/hub/sensor has to be replaced. But at that mileage, they may be long overdue for replacement. On my'07, the bearing was on it's way out before I hit 100K miles.

As far as where to source the hub assembly, don't skimp. This is not a simple install and you don't want to do it twice because the aftermarket part you used was bad. Go OEM or get one from an aftermarket manufacturer with a very good reputation like Moog or something like that.

Thanks for the info. I did order Moog wheel bearings and I’ll be putting them in this weekend. I too believe that will help. I also ordered the clock spring. Yikes I hope I don’t get hit with the air bag. Being an ‘07 it’s probably too late for a recall right?

If it's a federal recall it may be possible. There were a few internal "recalls" that have expired for you. The one I'm thinking of is the warranty extension that Nissan did for the exhaust manifolds. If they're bad, don't delay fixing them.

Yes I have a pretty “ticky” sounding exhaust leak. What should I do ? Call my local Nissan dealer?

Getting the exhaust manifolds replaced at the dealer is quite expensive. Around $2400. Lookup JBA long tube headers or call the folks at Cajun B-Pipes, they're sponsors here and can sell you everything you need for a lot less.

thanks very much! I’ll check that out. I’ll also let you all know any updates to progress with the clock spring and the wheel bearings

The radio, cruise, and horn is a bad clockspring, I had the same issue, make sure you buy genuine Nissan parts, all others will go out within 2 hours. I learned the hard way replaced 3 times.

I was able to fix the manual shift buttons yesterday. Apparently the wires that travel down the shift stick are too short. I discovered I had three broken wires there and spliced linger sections. Now I have manual shift options back with will help me with trailering.

So I finally got to change out the clock spring today. Now I have steering wheel controls, cruise control, and horn. So I just have back up sensor not working which I can live with.
