I haven't verified it with the info that you posted, but I ran across some differences in the wiring and pin numbers from the 2003/2004 and the 2004.5 Zs. I don't know if the wiring has stayed the same from the 2004.5 thru the 2005 & 2006 but I suspect it has.

So depending on what model year you have, those colors and pins may or may not be correct.

the easiest way to verify is with a test light that test for ground

Thank you for saving us a dome light relay! Too bad Nissan doesn't specify each IO's operating current/voltage levels. For circuit protection Schottky diodes have a lower voltage drop than generic diodes. Mechanical relays compromise reliability, so minimize their use. Use a DVOM instead of a powered test light to reduce airbag risk.

For just the alarm install subset (there may be more deltas, or even the 2004.5 manual may be wrong) I found seven discrepancies noted by ">>".
***Trained Technicians must first DVOM validate definitions, as a mistake could easily cause a very expensive short. ***

Hazards green/red - brown plug, pin 61 at BCM >>29
Turn Signal(L) green/white + white plug, pin 22 at BCM >>45
Turn Signal(R) purple/white + white plug, pin 21 at BCM >>46
Door Trigger white (L), pink (R) - white plug, pin 14, 10 at BCM >>62, 12
Trunk/Hatch Pin red/white - white plug, pin 18 at BCM >>57T / 58H
Trunk/Hatch Release pink - brown plug, pin 76 at BCM >>30 (The BCM's connector count is 70...)

What dream724Z has observed is not that the 2004.5 manual is wrong, it's a different BCM connections.

Here's what I have for 2004.5 (and possibly 2005) BCM
12V constant supply (fused): gray 42 at BCM
Ignition ON: white/blue 38 at BCM
ACC ON: light-green 11 at BCM
Driver's door switch: white 62 at BCM
Passenger's door switch: pink 12 at BCM
Rear Hatch switch: red 58 at BCM
CAN data: blue 39 at BCM & pink 40 at BCM
Ground black: 52 at BCM
Door lock actuator: purple 50 at BCM
Driver's door unlock actuator: yellow 44 at BCM
Passenger's door unlock actuator: white/red 51 at BCM
Rear hatch actuator: purple 68 at BCM

Here are the connector diagrams for the 2003/2004 and 2004.5 BCM.

Nissan 350Z service manual color code.

B = Black

Y = Yellow
LG = Light Green
BR = Brown
OR = Orange
P = Pink
PU = Purple (Magenta)
GY = Gray

When the color is striped the base coler is given first, followed by the stipe color as shown here: L/W is Blue with a White stripe.

I'm sure someone in here can tell me what wire to splice in to get 1.21 gigawatts of power for my flux capacitor?

well if not that, can one of you tell me:

1. whether the Z's power seats use constant power or are only powered when the key is in the "on" position?

2. how much power does each seat require?

3. since my Z doesn't have a stock harness for this, what wire can I splice into to get the necessary power and if I do need a remote should I just go directly to the fuse box?

thanks.

Thanks for the great reference!

Can you add a key to describe what your text means?

For instance I am looking the illumination wire and you say:

"Radio Illumination red/blue + radio harness "

I think you mean:

Signal: Radio Illumination
Wire Color: Red with blue stripe
Location: Radio Harness

The problem is there is no red with blue stripe so I'm clearly wrong in my interpretation of your guide. Can someone please clarify this FAQ for us that don't know what the heck it means?

Thank you in advance!

<edit>

Yes, I was correct in my assumption of what he was trying to say and the correct wire was just pointed out to me and it is in fact red with a blue stripe. It turns into orange on the radio wiring harness so thats good info to know for other n00bs like myself.

I am re-doing my car pc setup using a carnetix P2140 regulator. This regulator has an input for turning on with a pulse (from 0 or floating to 12V) (http://www.carnetix.com/installation...anual_V1_2.pdf section 6) for use with an alarm system.

Would I be able to tap in to the light blue unlock wire to get the signal that I need?

I checked it out with my multimeter and it looks like it is normally at +5V. I am guessing that it pulses low when I unlock the door, but it is too quick for my multimeter to pick up. So it looks like, for this to work, I would need another constant +5V source and a relay?

If I can do this, is it a bad idea?
