Qashqai Model: Still looking for one....

Post by Darryl C » Mon May 09, 2022 9:03 am

Ok here is the unusual experience I had doing this mod.I made the harness as per Cod's diagram with the pin 37 correction and Bose amp pin 10 Shield. I have a 2018 Xtrail TI Aus variant. When I plugged it in everything worked immediately. Night/day illumination changes, All modules in the service menu are green . I thought once I start the car maybe the red lockout would come up but I test drove and everything works 100% without a visit to Nissan. Android Auto also worked straight up with the existing USB but the charge rate is slow. My 2018 Xtrail also came with a 4 wire microphone that already has noise cancelling. The extra yellow wire goes to Pin 24 of the old M49 connector. With this connected to Pin 51 of the new M187 Headunit connector there is no echo on Bluetooth and no extra wiring to run.
I don't know what grade 2020 Qashqai the later unit came out of and was worried my 360 camera's and Bose amp would not work correctly but these also seem fine. No Park Assist in the TI here.
Now I did wire up the old connector end incorrectly first (Brainfade-Forgot the male/female reversal) and the car wouldn't start. At various times the dash said, oil pressure fault, system fault and no key detected. I checked the codes and only U0101 (No comms with trans ecu) was there and couldn't be reset.After checking the fuses ,1 was blown and after replacing all was good again.I think it was the Trans module fuse but not sure,
Anyway I don't know why but everything was working perfectly without re-registering the keys . I will get the newer usb out of the same wreck I got the unit from and see if that speeds up the charge rate,

Welcome to this forum. Well done!

Interesting you think that the newer USB might work when the older one doesn't. But then I'm a complete novice when it comes to electrics like this.

Hey I have a 2015 J11 with the 3" display in the head unite. Is it possible to install the headunit from a fully loaded model with the bigger touch screen? Would all the functions work?

Has anyone used one of these? Looks like it would save the trip to Nissan.

barcodeali - a belated welcome to this forum.

The unit you show is not UK spec so it's possible no one's had experience swapping out that unit.

Check out other postings in respect of upgrades - I didn't have to do it and have no detailed knowledge of the issues involved.

You say you don't need satnav so I'm not sure what you actually think you'll get from the upgrade.

Going to Android would most likely be easier though.
