NISSAN TITAN Exterior Lighting Headlights High, Low Beam Dimmer Switch problems : 2.
I Own A 2004 nissan titan With 3000 Miles On It. I Have Inadvertently Turned The Headlights Off While Driving At Night At Least 10 Times In This Time Frame. The Reason For This Is A Combination Of A Large Twist Knob And A Weak Detent To Hold The Switch In The On Position. This Is Not An Isolated Defect In My Switch, Rather A Design Defect Of All titan Switches As I Have Looked At Other New Ones On The nissan Dealer’s Lot. The Problem Is That The On-off Twist Knob Is Located At The End Of The Turn Signal Switch So When You Either Turn The Turn Signal On Or Flip The Switch Forward Or Back With Your Fingers To Change The Lights From Bright To Dim The Switch Is Very Easy To Turn Off By Accident. When This Happens On A Dark Road It Is Very Alarming And I Feel May Eventually Lead To A Serious Accident. The Twist Knob Is So Large In Comparison To Other Switches Of This Type That There Is Tremendous Leverage To Accidently Twist It If You Dont Grap It Exactly In The Center. nissan Has Told Me There Is Nothing Wrong And I Am The Only One But I Don’t Believe It. I Own An Automobile Repair Business And Have A Great Deal Of Technical Knowledge And Sincerly Believe This To Be A Serious Design Flaw In This Switch Which Will Likely Lead To Someone Losing Their Life As This Truck Becomes More Popular.*ak

When Using Dimmer Switch Changing From Low To High Beam Or High To Low Beam, I Have To Be Very Careful Or I Will Turn The Lights Off. This Has Happened Several Times And Its Very Dangerous. *jb
