WTB: circuit breaker(s)

Buy it, sell it, negotiate, haggle, drag it out from under the workbench or behind the garage and make it someone else's problem!

WTB: circuit breaker(s)

#1

Post by retired » 10 years ago

I need a replacement window circuit breaker for my 83 diesel maxima sedan. It looks like I could use a door lock breaker as easily. Any spares out there? [HINT: if you have a carcass, they're located in the passenger side panel in front of the door]

Member Mark_Hartz still has an '81 Wagon in his yard for now. I'm sure he'd dig out what you need. He has no email, nor does he frequent this forum anymore. Call his cell at 360.531.3310 . PST hours.

Marked pulled out everything in the right kick panel area, and could not find anything that matched your description:

At the moment the windows won out, I used the door lock breaker to get the windows back up. It appeared to be the same. Black cylinder shape with the following markings:

TD107-1 12V
JIDECO JAPAN
I went over there and looked at what was in the '81 Wagon. I took pics of the only circuit breaker there (one, and one only):

Then I went home and got out the 1981 Diesel Supplement & 1982 FSM, and it's true:
  • 1981 uses a fusible link for the PDL and a rectangular CB for the PW;
  • 1982 has identical (AFAICT) round CBs for both PDL & PW.
I think the PW CB also protects the power sunroof.

It looks as if the actual harness connector is the same in both years, so this 1981 rectangular CB will likely work (electrically) in your '83, though you might not have a drilled mounting hole for its bracket. Could you make do?

Otherwise, I'll look in the JYs for a Gen1 Maxima and get you a correct-style CB, but it might be a while. Some member here needs a rear deck lid too for a Sedan, still looking for one of those.

Great! I'll try the odd shaped one; I imagine that you are correct and that it will work electrically. My '83 sedan's PDL and PW ones were round and identical like you indicate they are for the '82s. [Both circuits also have fusible links]

I would appreciate it if you would keep an eye out for the 'real' things when you visit those JYs. I'd still like to get one spare CB at least and try to get a spare for each of those control modules hidden behind the cabin panels and under the seat(s). I know they do fail since I'd had to bypass the timer circuit/module for the glow plugs and had just used a push button to control the plug relay on my old '82 wagon.

I appreciate all Mark's and your efforts. If I need to send any of the circuit diagrams or location diagrams from my manual, or any thing else, let me know.
