have you ever had a exahust leak at the rear. a lot of time the exaust will rust through at muffler causing the hot exahust gases to melt the rear wiring harness, does only do this when towing, if so the trans may be getting hot you might need to add a external trans cooler, i am a nissan tech so i have seen some crazy things. here is my email email@example.com
