Help please!

My '05 Mo's hatch won't open from the outside buttons anymore. I dont have the key fob option on the middle east versions of the SE.

I did a lot of reading here, and got the panel removed, checked the motor... it looks good, no frozen rusted parts. The two wires coming from the switch had about 12V on them. To test the motor and isolate the porblem, I shorted the two leads in the connector to the switch and the actuator works just fine.

The switch is faulty. I would like to replacce it myself so plesae help if there are any pictures or part numbers for this?

MM-

I took a look on the CourtesyParts.com website but could not locate the switch. It does not appear to be listed. Hopefully another member can be more helpful. Sorry.

Hi. Got it done myself. The parts store did not have a part number for the switch in their drawings for the Murano. Went to the junk yard and got one for about $10.

No need to remove the entire hatch backing thing, Just remove the interior liner (easy) and then unplug the switch wire from the harness. When I shorted the two leads in the plug there, the actuator worked perfect, so I knew the switch was dead. Now to replace the switch, just a knife got it out from the outside of the vehicle. The new one just plugs (snaps) in right there. Very bad though, cause if I want to steal a Murano, jusy pull out the switch, cut the two leads and short them... the trunk opens up!! Don't try this though...

Hmm... I think we're missing something here. If I read the schematics correctly, the circuit is only energized when the central lock system is unlocked. So if your MO is locked via the keyfob, then disconnecting the switch and shorting the leads should do nothing.

Good job on sourcing the part through a salvage yard.
