Looks like it all goes through the Smart Entrance Control Unit.
Have a look in the service manual. Electrical, Lighting, Page LT-96

So after a lot of searching finally made it.
I had a problem with the interior light that didnt light when i unlocked the car,Everything seemed to be ok about fuses,relays e.t.c.
A friend from here said something about probably problem of smart entrance control,so started checking it,went to nissan service and after measurements said "Yes thats the problem its the smart entrance control,changing it would cost 450 Euros"
-Come again????????? i said....

After hours of googling tried something risky but yes it worked.

so...

Remove the negative pole from the baterry before you begin anything
remove the plastics under the steering column to find the smart entrance control (look deep up and right)(left handed)

The smart entrance control is this


Its location under the steering column (mine is left handed)


Opened and see that this one transistor R4383 is the problem



Unsolder will be hell be prepared and have patience,all the body is solder so you have to warm very well the top to be removed first unsolder the two legs and then the body

Tried to find the same transistor r4383.......No luck at all,luckilly as we had a discussion with the seller at the electonic store he proposed this Buz 90 http://www.datasheetcatalog.com/datasheets_pdf/B/U/Z/9/BUZ90.shtml,Has the same behaviour and specifications as the r 4383 but one little problem its Bigger.


So with the help of dremel


Became like this


Be carefull while you soldering that one needs skills my friends,if you cant do it go to a electronic repair shop to do it for you

We do not solder the center leg of the transistor just cut it.Dont forget to solder the top

close it


put it back on.Everything works like a charm Interior lightning and the ring that lights to the ignition,you will notice only that when you unlock the car the signal lights flashes a bit faster.

Thanks to some russian sites for primera and nissan generally
Thats all from me dudes
Hope somebody will find this helpfull

P.S If the administrators wants they can make it also DIY.
