  1. Just probe a dashlight or plug C's pins 5 & 11. It will either be perma-powered and the lightswitch gives it earth, or the power will be at the switch and the globes all have one side direct to earth. Once you work that out, it's just a matter of how you get the signal to the IC7. If the power is at the switch and there is nothing at the dash unless the switch is on, then it's easy. Just tap off the wire at pin 11. If there is constantly hot power there, then you tap off at pin 5 and you set the IC7 to the inverse behaviour of the voltage seen at pin 5. Dash (IC7) lights on when pin 5 is low, dash (IC7) lights off when pin 5 is high.

  2. And just because it made the car so much more enjoyable to drive and was such a simple mod, here's what I used in case anyone's interested. Just make certain you dial in enough to allow the clutch to fully disengage the clutch at the stop of course. Reverse is good for this test since it doesn't have synchros so you can feel if it's clear.

  3. Can you ? Of course you can. Should you? That's another matter. Millions of words have been written on both these questions so just google the questions and you will have plenty of suggestions. In my opinion that straight looking car deserves an RB25 DET at least!

  4. If people all import their vehicles from Japan instead of buying from the local supply chain, that hurts their international operations considerably. In turn, that costs jobs here in Australia and everywhere else. What seems like a simple language change to you or I, really becomes a problem for all concerned along the line. So, manufacturers of various products have their domestic product and support it domestically only. As Ben said, when that Japanese domestic product leaves their shores, it's really not their problem any longer. It's not like you had any business with them if you were to never buy another secondhand Nissan ever again. Would it be nice if Nissan had multiple selectable languages in these systems? Sure. Would it be feasible? Definitely. Would it actually be used in a country whose 99.9% proportion of users are Japanese? Not likely, so they don't bother and that's fair enough. When I bought my V36, I knew this was going to be an issue and I worked out my own Infotainment system to augment it. Time to get creative and/or resourceful, dude.
