Are you sure that your truck doesn't have a SECU?

is there a way to know if i have this?
On my 04 it's directly above the gas pedal but your 01 might have it in a different location.
Check the FSM for your year model.

Here's a link to the FSM.
The FSM is in sections so you may want to download the alphabetical index first to locate the section(s) that has the SECU or power locks or keyless entry.

i just saw a different discussion where someone’s SECU broke and his dome light, chime, and power locks went out. the same happened to me a week ago. my dome lights and chime went out and now recently my door locks! i think my SECU might’ve broke last week.

Have you checked all fuses?

I'm the one who lost all keyless entry on my 04 Frontier, when I shorted out my dome light. It turned out to be the accessory fuse on the bottom row, right side of the fuse box.
i was wiring up a pair of aftermarket tweeters when i noticed my dome lights stopped working. the next day my chime stopped working!! i started to get really worried my truck had electrical issues. the next week my power locks also went out and only worked when the ignition was on. i started to look more into this issue and saw a post about the back up fuse under the hood and then i also saw a post about the SECU. what issues did you have with your truck?

I had everything you listed happen all at once when I touched the metal fixture of the dome light with one end of the bulb while putting it in. There are two accessory fuses on the bottom row of the inside cab dash fuse box. I blew the one on the right side bottom. I had just ordered a used secu box for $50 when I decided to check more fuses. I canceled the order about 10min after I placed it.

could you send me a link to an SECU box for a 2001 frontier SE-V6 king cab. ima need one anyways for the keyless entry system. but i’ll have to check all my fuses and see what’s wrong.
