*Possible Recall* T31 Hazards not working on a Trailer*


Hi Guys,

As some of you may have already discovered, the hazard lights do not work on a trailer connected to the T31 X-Trail when the ignition is off.

This problem has indeed been acknowledged by Nissan in the UK and an official recall has been announced to fix this problem by adding a sub-harness.

Details of this recall can be found [url=[sign in to see URL]

Not sure how long it will take Nissan Australia to register this problem, but you have to mention it to your dealer to make them aware of the risks involved.

Re: *Possible Recall* T31 Hazards not working on a Trailer*


I spoke to Nissan several times regarding this.
All they tell me is that is a safety issue so that a trailer can't short out the Xy, whatever.
They told me to see an auto electrician.

Today I did this mod myself and simply by passed the module that controls it.
Check it out in the DIY section.

Well, it's a safety issue is you parked on the side of the road due to an emergency with the trailer and can't use the hazards!

Sure, you could have told them, I will see an electrician and send you the bill emoticon

I told them that too, almost word for word as you wrote.
They said that Nissan would not pay the bill.
Go figure.

I got away with it for nearly 2 years now and I don't want to push my luck any further.
I had to do it ASAP or the consequenses could mean a written off Xy and trailer, and that adds up to no work.

They're playing with fire and will probably wake-up when someone takes them to court one day as a result of a major accident.

This happen to me just today, hooked up my boat, put on the hazards to check the trailer lights and nothing, lights and brake still worked.
Had me checking my fuses, although I've just realised with the car hazards working it couldn't have been the fuses, and trailer plug, then I decide to give it a try with the ignition on, and it worked.

Yes Peter, this fault doesn't happen only when the ignition is off and/or the key is out.

Re: *Possible Recall* T31 Hazards not working on a Trailer*


I've had the series 4 T31 Diesel Manual for two weeks now

I noticed that on this model the hazards work on my trailer with the key out. Woo hoo!

It's about time Nissan made the fix available or did a recall to get it right for early T31's.

You can now mention to your dealer that the latest T31 (as at Jan 2011) has been fixed and that they should be able to fix the older T31's

The latest T31 ST petrol (April 2011 build) has been corrected too. Hazard lights work on the boat trailer with the key removed.
