the pinout is slightly different for whatever reason.. the fix might be to repin the plug?

Yeah, I' think I could, but I also don't care that much about the back seat or the people who occasionally sit there :lol:

Correct the REAR Altima buttons do not work. !!! do not use rear altima lighted buttons. FRONT Are fine, but not rear.

trust me, dont try it. i connected them and noticed that the switch board itself got really HOT. see i connected it and tested it before reinstalling the trim and putting it back. i noticed right away that they did not light up, so i then holding the harness in my hand felt the switch board itself and it was HOT HOT..i quickly disconnected it and turned off the car and then reinstalled the OEM non lighted rear switches.

everything is working fine on the fronts but as the Nico club manual explains, the wiring is different.

since i have the switches i will look at repinning when i get time.

so, i need the electrical engineers to confirm, but from the Altima FSM and the Leaf FSM it looks like we need to re-pin the D202 harness before we connect an Altima rear lighted window switch.

so from this image below it looks like we need to swap pin 8 and 2 on the D202 harness on the LH door and then the new pin 2 of the D202 with the Altima switch installed in the leaf needs to be sent to ground? can anyone confirm by reviewing the FSM images please?

i think your best bet is just pinning the signals right at the 8 pin connector that plugs into the rear door switch. compare the 1-8 numbers in altima to the 1-8 numbers in leaf. Leaf just has wires in pins 1-5, now move the wires in pins 1-5 around so that wire in

pin 1 goes to pin 4,
pin 2 goes to pin 8
pin 3 goes to pin 7
pin 4 goes to pin 5
pin 5 goes to pin 6

the altima has an extra ground on pin 2 that you may need to add somehow and is missing on the leaf, i believe is the ground for the little led light. hopefully the pins come out of the connector without a super special tool.

thank you, i think your right.

i think your also right about the pin 2 being the LED light ground but i scoured the FSM and i couldn't find what that symbol meant shown in the pic...the circle triangle symbol at pin 2. im guessing thats the LED symbol.

the symbol is for a diode, if there is a circle around it then usually it means LED (LED is a diode itself.. only works in one direction). usually i expect some rays for light around it too but that might not be standard. give it a go and you'll have a more upgraded Leaf than the rest of us :)
