Checking to see if anyone has gotten this working on a 2011 Rogue S with the standard transmission (no "manual" mode). I already viewed a few posts and forums of guys who have added paddle shifters and such to their older Nissans (08-09) and saw it as an opportunity to try. After getting the wiring diagrams and looking into it, I tried testing a few wires and it "seems" like it may work, but I got odd results.
2011 Rogue has the control wires coming from the combination meter assembly, so it was easy to identify the "up shift" , "down shift", "manual mode", and the 2 paddle wires, all of which need to just ground at different times to activate. The way it is "supposed" to go is to ground the "manual" lead to go to manual mode (which it seems to do so fine, BTW), then basically hop the ground wire off the "manual" lead and onto one of the shifting leads. Problem is, when I do that, it basically just shuts off manual mode and goes to regular mode again.
BTW, I do have the same 2 relay setup that they used on an Infinity forum to wire up some paddles, so when I activate a shift, it handles flipping the ground back and forth.
It seems that this feature is still programmed into the vehicle, as it partially activates, but I just can't perform the shifts. it just goes into the closest gear of the MPH that I am going, and I can only keep it there, or flip back to regular PRND mode.
Anyone get this to go on your newer nissan. I can buy the manual shifter console for $100 used, but don't want to spend the cash if it will only kinda work.
Thanks for any help!!!
