Asked by May 19, 2014 at 08:22 PM about the 2002 Nissan Xterra SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Nissan Xterra SE 3.3 engine (no supercharger) auto trans. (VIN #
5N1ED28T62C504375 PRODUCTION DATE 08/01) Truck starts up and idles fine. Runs
great can drive it no problem. Turn my wipers on I have no intermittent or low speed on
wipers, has high only. However when I turn on the wipers to high the engine shuts off.
turn the wipers off and crank it starts right up. turn the wipers on again and it shuts
down again. only does this with the wipers. you can turn on the lights, turn signals,
blow the horn, heat, a/c and the truck keeps running. Turn on the wipers and it shuts
down. Checked for short with my multi-meter all wiring is good. Replaced switch on
column, no change. Replaced the wiper motor, no change. New motor and switch
(NISSAN PRODUCTS) and I still don’t have intermittent or low speed and when I turn it
to high it shuts the engine down. ANYBODY GOT A FIX FOR THIS?

I was told by a tech that it sounds k\like the Body Control Module went bad. However, my truck does not have a BCM. I have looked at the manufacture wiring schematic and the wiper system is its own closed system.

Did you figure out your problem? I have similar. (No shutoff)
