Okay, what the heck is this thing?

Recommended Posts

It a speed sensor I'm pretty sure. Either the ignition or ECM use it for some 'critical' function. 

Something on the speedo hooks up to it. I've seen them attached to speedo's

looks like part of the BCDD system, used to know when going over 10 mph. "amplifier"

that’s the door chime

Haha!! Yes, it's the annoying buzzer/beeper.

Supposed to make noise when a) the key is first turned to the "ON" position (beeps six times or so and then stops),
and b) anytime the key is in the ignition and the driver's door is open

Here is the speed sensor attached to the back of the Speedo,

That would make sense as one of the contacts had been disconnected but here is the diagram from the schematic which is suppose to be very accurate.

Nissan wasn't very good at labeling the wire colors on the device side for many of the small devices like this. In other words... I wouldn't be surprised to find that the wire colors on the harness side are correct on the diagram, and they were just never identified on the device side. I would guess that the creator @wal280z of that colored wiring diagram probably just assumed the wire colors did NOT change since there wasn't any info to the contrary.

So... Is there a three position connector hanging down between the tach and speedo that has black/yellow, green, and black? If so, that's where that buzzer plugs in, despite the color change to a pair of reds and a black.

@Captain Obvious - you are correct, I did not change the wire colors from the harness to the device side - I suppose that the BE section may indicate proper wire colors on the device, but that would be another large hurdle, but it could be done.

The ONE thing that I did add to the diagram that was not on the original from Nissan was the dashed line indicating the firewall, so users could find the devices easier.

I don't think even the BE section documents the color changes like the ones on that chime unit. I think the only way to figure all of those out is individual inspection of all the wires on the side of all the devices plugged into the harness. In other words.... No way.

I think we all just have to understand the situation and why it is the way it is. I think now that we have identified the issue, it's not much of an issue.   :beer:
