General Info:

  • Car: Nissan Murano 2005 SL
  • Crank + start: Yes
  • Battery charged: Yes
  • Battery terminals correct install/uninstall order: Yes


No power on ACC position, no ignition key warning sound, no ignition key light, no dome, map, rear interior lights, no rear windshield wiper.


Radio + dash on ON, windows, front windshield wiper, lock/unlock, door window buttons.


So my old battery got drained because I was messing around in the car for long without engine ON, and then since it wouldn't start, I jumpstarted the old battery to make sure that it was the problem. I replaced the battery with a new one, now all these problems started to occur. I should note that my friend was the one who jump started the old battery, so I'm unsure whether he followed the correct jumper order.

Additionally, when the key is on ACC, nothing in the dash lights up, I have to turn it into ON so the radio + dash turn on.

I have checked the fuses (using multimeter - continuity test), but not the relays.

This is the last fuse box which I have not throughly* checked, as accessing it has proven difficult. Is there any fuse(s)/relay(s) here that may be causing the problem?

  • Your bcm may have got corrupted then. I see it happen quite a bit on Nissan's with battery issue's around that year. Is yours a key or twist ignition?

If absolutely nothing is working but you installed a brand new battery, first check to make sure the terminals are 100% clean and not corroded. If the connections are fine, check the main battery fuse - it should look like this

  • Is there anyway to check them apart from visual inspection?

  • Also, only the interior lights are affected -- everything else works (dash, radio, a.c., etc.)

  • You can use a multimeter, but it's pretty easy to visually inspect. However, if some stuff works it definitely sounds like there's a fuse you missed, then

  • I have checked all fuses more than 3 times tho (using multimeter with continuity test), even removed them for visual inspection. I have however, managed to track down a possible culprit: i.ibb.co/CKYTJfF/image.png However I'm not even sure where this is located at all, or how I would check it.
