DISCLAIMER
[GENERAL INFORMATION]

GENERAL INFORMATION
DISCLAIMER
Important Regulatory Information
Emission standards and motor vehicle safety standards for new vehicles and equipment have been established
by the United States and Canadian Governments under the provisions of the Clean Air Act, the Noise Control
Act, and the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act in the U.S., and the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Act
in Canada. These Acts govern Nissan as the original equipment manufacturer of the Nissan NV Passenger Vans.
They also govern dealers, body builders, and all others who manufacture and market new motor vehicles and
equipment. Part 568 of the Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) describes requirements for intermediate
manufacturers, final-stage manufacturers, and manufacturers who assume legal responsibility for a vehicle. This
Body Builder’s Guide (Guide) partially fulfills Nissan’s obligations as the original equipment manufacturer.
Additionally, this guide identifies regulatory requirements to assist intermediate and final stage manufacturers to
determine their obligations to conform with these standards.
Compliance labels affixed to Nissan NV Passenger Vans indicate the status of initial compliance as of the date of
manufacture by Nissan. Any subsequent modifications made to this vehicle may affect the final certification of the
engine, vehicle or equipment. The body builder, conversion company, or dealer responsible for any modification
has the responsibility to certify that the modified vehicle and equipment complies or continues to comply with all
applicable motor vehicle safety standards and emissions regulations. The body builder, conversion company, or
dealer is responsible for making sure the modifications or installed equipment do not affect the safety of the
vehicle, including modifications which may result in a collision, property damage, personal injury or death.
Nissan does not assume responsibility as the final stage manufacturer for modified or altered vehicles. Nissan is
not responsible for final certification, product liability claims, or warranty claims, resulting from any component,
assembly, or system altered by or at the request of the body builder, conversion company, dealer or vehicle
purchaser. Nissan is not responsible for modifications which cause the vehicle to become noncompliant with any
of the motor vehicle safety standards, emissions regulations, or modifications that cause the vehicle to be or
become defective or unsafe.
Disclaimer
All information, specifications and illustrations in this manual are those in effect at the time of printing. Nissan
reserves the right to change specifications or design without notice and without obligation.
The body builder, conversion company, aftermarket equipment manufacturer, second stage manufacturer, upfitter,
dealer and the vehicle purchaser are responsible to abide by all regulations issued by the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), state, local, or
provincial government laws. These regulations and laws may require the installation of additional equipment for
the intended use of the vehicle.

The following definitions are from Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations, Parts 567.3, 568.3 and 571.3 where
noted. Canadian definitions are from Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations, Section 2(1), and are in italics.
Nissan definitions are for the purpose of this publication only. Some terms are followed by an abbreviation that is
used throughout this publication.
USA
Accessory Reserve Capacity (ARC) — Represents the amount of bolt-on accessory or modification weight
permanently attached to a certified vehicle before its unloaded vehicle weight exceeds the unloaded vehicle
weight for which Nissan has established FMVSS/CMVSS compliance. Accessory Reserve Capacity designations
assume the use of permanently attached components resulting in center of gravity locations generally similar to
those of comparable completed vehicles. Any additions or alterations that significantly affect the center of gravity
of the total unit could impose more severe conditions than those for which Nissan has established compliance to
FMVSS and CMVSS requirements.
Center of Gravity (CG) — The center of mass of a body or system.
Completed Vehicle — A vehicle that requires no further manufacturing operations to perform its intended
function, other than the addition of readily attachable components, such as mirrors or tire and rim assemblies, or
minor finishing operations such as painting. (49CFR568.3)
Curb Weight — Is the weight of a motor vehicle with standard equipment; maximum capacity of engine fuel, oil,
and coolant; and if so equipped, air conditioning and additional weight optional engine. (49CFR571.3)
Engine Control Module (ECM) — The ECM consists of a microcomputer and connectors for signal input and
output and for the power supply. The ECM also controls the engine.
Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) — The value specified by the manufacturer as the loaded weight
of a combination vehicle. (49CFR571.3)
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) — The value specified by the manufacturer as the loaded weight of a
single vehicle. (49CFR571.3)
HO2 Heated Oxygen Sensor — The sensor after the three-way catalyst (manifold) that monitors the oxygen
level in the exhaust gas on each bank.
Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment — A lamp that is mounted on a multipurpose
passenger vehicle, truck, or bus for the purpose of providing illumination to load or unload cargo.
Maximum Payload — Maximum allowable weight that can be placed in the vehicle, including driver,
passengers and aftermarket equipment. Value is reduced by adding optional equipment.
Passenger Van— A van that carries more than two passengers.
Seating system— Any seating position that can be adjusted to conform to different configurations.
SgRP — The theoretical hip point used by manufacturers when designing a vehicle. More specifically, it describes
the relative position of the seated dummy’s hip point when the seat is set in the rearmost and lowermost seating
position. Also known as the “R-point” (reference point).
Stop Lamp Switch — An electrically powered switch that sends a signal to the BCM, to turn on the stop lamps,
when the brake pedal is depressed.
Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) — The electric throttle control actuator that consists of the throttle control
motor, throttle position sensor, etc. The throttle position sensor responds to the throttle valve movement.
Truck — A motor vehicle with motive power, except a trailer, designed primarily for the transportation of property
or special purpose equipment. (49CFR571.3)
Unloaded Vehicle Weight (UVW) — Weight of a vehicle with maximum capacity of all fluids necessary for
operation of the vehicle, but without cargo, occupants, or accessories that are ordinarily removed from the vehicle
when it is not in use. (49CFR571.3)
Walk-In Van — A van type of truck in which a person having a height of 1,700 mm (66.93 in) can enter the occupant
compartment in an upright position by a front door.

SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) PRECAUTIONS
[SAFETY INFORMATION]

SAFETY INFORMATION
SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) PRECAUTIONS
Precautions for Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) (Air Bag( and (Belt Pre-Tensioner(

WARNING:
• To avoid rendering the SRS inoperative, which could increase the risk of personal injury or death
in the event of a collision which could result in air bag inflation, it is recommended all
maintenance be performed by an authorized NISSAN dealer.
• Improper maintenance, including incorrect removal and installation of the SRS, can lead to
personal injury caused by unintentional activation of the system or failure of the system to work
properly in the event of an accident.
• To avoid rendering the SRS inoperative, which could increase the risk of personal injury or death
in the event of a collision which would result in air bag inflation, the front passenger seat cannot
be permanently removed.
• Do not use electrical test equipment on any circuit related to the SRS. SRS wiring harnesses can
be identified by yellow and/or orange harnesses or harness connectors.
Precautions When Using Power Tools (Air or Electric) and Hammers

WARNING:
• When working near the Air bag Diagnosis Sensor Unit or other Air bag System sensors with the
ignition ON or engine running, DO NOT use air or electric power tools or strike near the sensor(s)
with a hammer. Heavy vibration could activate the sensor(s) and deploy the air bag(s), possibly
causing serious injury.
• When using air or electric power tools or hammers, always switch the ignition OFF, disconnect
the battery, and wait at least 3 minutes before performing any service. Care should be taken to
avoid damaging or contacting SRS components. Doing so may cause the system to improperly
operate in the event of a collision.

Recommended Procedure
Setup
The following vehicle conditions should be verified prior to the measurement:
• Vehicle Mass: Unloaded Vehicle Condition — Full fluids, spare tire, jack and tire tool.
• Vehicle Posture: Unloaded Vehicle Condition — Adjust fender opening height to design value.
• Tire: Production parts shall be used. Tire pressure should be set to the specified pressure on Tire Placard once the
vehicle has cooled.

• Steering Wheel: Set to center of stroke with wheels pointing forward.
• Seats: Adjust to reference position:
• Longitudinal slide: Center of slide
• Seat Lifter: Lowermost
• Back angle: Set to normal driving condition or as close to 23° as possible.
• Window Glass: Fully closed.
• Other Parts: Production parts shall be used.
• Road Surface to be used: Flat load cell.
• Measurement Needed: Wheelbase, height of wheel centers from ground, lift heights, axle loads.
• Shift Position: Neutral for both AT and MT vehicles. For safety, apply the parking brake.
Measurement Methods
1. The vehicle should be at its unloaded vehicle condition, with full fluids and equipped with spare tire, jack and tools.
2. Measure the wheelbase of the vehicle (WB) on the left-hand and right-hand sides of the vehicle and use the average
value for the calculations. Measure the height of the 4 wheel centers from the ground to get h f and h r.

3.
4.
5.
6.
7.

Replace the shock absorbers with turnbuckles or solid link to avoid suspension travel.
Increase the tire air pressure to the maximum recommended level specified in tire placard or Owner’s Manual.
Once the vehicle is on the scale, set the parking brake to prevent vehicle from rolling.
Measure the Rear Wheel Load (W RO) in a horizontal position.
Raise the front of the vehicle with a hoist. Lift height should be at 0.5 m (1.6 ft) to start, with additional lift heights used
to improve accuracy. (i.e., 0.5 m (1.6 ft) + a, 0.5 m (1.6 ft) + B).

8. Measure the Rear Wheel Load (W R) with raised vehicle.
9. Change the lift height and measure the load on the rear wheel to find the relationship between lift and load. Measure
two times for each lift height.

10. Follow the same procedure from (7) to (9) by raising the rear wheels.

Analysis Method
1. Plot the relation between the lift height (e) and the load on rear wheels (W RO) for raising the front wheels and the
relation between the lift (e) and the load on the front wheels (W FO) for raising the rear wheels. Draw a regression line
for both cases with front or rear.

2. Obtain the shifted load (∆W RO and ∆W FO) for the lift (e) according to the graph. ∆W RO and ∆W FO with e = 0.5 m
(1.6 ft.) shall be representative value.

3. Calculate the CG height by using the following equations:

[SAFETY INFORMATION]

The CGhb can be approximated
using the following formula:

CG hb =

W rb x WB
Wb

The CGh can be approximated using
the following formula:

The Max C can be approximated
using the following formula:

After calculating Max C, GVW can
be confirmed using the following
formula:

Max C =

(FR GAWR – W FO – P f) x WB
WB – CG hb

GVW = W c + W b + Max C + P
If GVW is greater than GVWR, then Max C
must be reduced
