Install Locations

The Nissan harness needs to be plugged into the ADAS module (NOT the lane keep assist camera). This module can be in a wide range of locations, which is why the Nissan harness ships with a 3 meter USB-C cable.

Below are locations the community has found for their cars. Please note, if your car isn't below you will need to locate the ADAS module. Join others on in the #nissan channel to get tips and tricks. Techinfo can help.

Leaf 2018-20

There are two known locations. Check your glovebox first as this is really easy to access compared to the instrument cluster. Below are confirmed locations. Please keep it up to date.


  • Everything else

Instrument Cluster

  • 2nd Zero Edition (01/18 - 02/18)
  • Tekna (02/18 - 01/19)
  • G (00/18 - 00/21)



It is just above the glove box location once removed. The picture is taken with the camera pointed up into the cavity - not directly head on. To access the glovebox remove the screws, directly above and below the glovebox. You can then gently pull the glovebox out and access everything needed behind it.

Instrument Cluster

To access the instrument cluster you can follow this video You do NOT need to disconnect the instrument cluster itself as shown in the video. Just put it to the side. The cable is long enough.

The ADAS module is on the right side in the 40kWh Leaf as marked by the arrow. Pay extra attention as the adapters marked with the X also fit the Nissan leaf car harness provided by comma ai.


The Leaf may have an extra module behind the instrument cluster. If so, the ADAS module will be in the middle as shown below.


With the instrument cluster out of your way, you can also remove the screw shown below. Which should then give easy access to the adapter.


For the Leaf, you may have to remove the screw holding the left module to be able to access the ADAS module.


Rogue 2018-19

Here is a great guide on how to wire up a 2019 Rouge. From @NM007ACE on discord.image

There is no need to disassemble anything. Remove the luggage floor cover, and expose the spare tire. The ADAS can be reach by hand, and the harness wire disconnects with minimal effort. This may require a USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 extender to reach the comma device.
