Dashboard and tail lights out on 97" Nissan Sentra

My daughter has a 97' Nissan sentra. The dashboard lights went out. Took car to dealer and after 2 days of checking car they said it was the fuse. Other mechanic checked fuses previuosly & said they were fine. Now dash lights went out again and this time so did tail lights. Bulbs were checked and are fine b/c break ligts still work. I have a 2004 Nissan Pathfinder and the dash lights went out one night..what I didnt know was that the tail lights were also out. I replaced the fuse and they worked for a couple of days and went out again. Now when I replace the fuse they come on for long enough to blow out. Dont really know what to do..please help.

I took my pathfinder to U-HAUL and asked them to check the towing lights. There was a pinched wire by my tail light and they cut it and changed it out for me, it was $5. I am so glad that I didnt take it to Nissan. My second step was going to be getting a new dimmer switch..but the guy who worked on my car said that wouldnt be the problem. He also told me that replacing a fuse that kept blowing out was dangerous and after the first time to get it checked out. Learn something new every day!!

The check engin light stay on all the time in a 1994 Nissan Sentra I have taken it to the dealer for a diagnostic evulation and was told it was the gcr valve I had it replaced and the light is still on. ...

Some ECUs require a reset and this is often done via the diagnostic code scanner itself. Auto parts stores will scan free, but I don't know if they would charge to reset the error register. You would have to call them and ask.
