I own a 99 Nissan Altima

Wiring possible problem

I guess it's the wiring that's the problem, it's such a pain to work with. I'll have to splice and tie them together, see if it works. Other than that, it seems all right, that screw thing is annoying but it's not bad actually. Appreciate any help that anyone might be able to give me.

re: atakm

Question, when you say you removed your center console, do you mean the whole assembly or that portion around the shifter area? Did you have to remove it because of the wiring issues?
