Sounds like you have a good short going, it's hard to say where it is, you will have to take a look at your fuse panel first as you have so many things going on. Then use a meter to check for things that might be grounded. I know nothing about a Nissan but that will be a start. if you know nothing about electrical on a car, this might take awhile.
