Dash board lights out and tail lights working intermittently
My dash board lights went out the other day then last night I got notified that my tail lights are only working intermittently. I have been trying to figure out the dash board lights and now this. Any suggestions?

The only thing that both the brake lights and tail lights use is a ground connection. Keep in mind the warning light on the dash may be for any exterior lamp. You may need to check the sockets and grounds on all four corners of the car.
On my 94 gmc I lost my taillights, I traced the problem(with help) to a little white block with wires coming out that is located on the steering column. A wire was broken off so I resoldered it and it solved my problem. It is just an idea,but, it is a place to look.
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 Dash and Tail lights connect to the same fuse in most cars. if the fuse is okay, check to make sure the tail lights and/or dash lights are properly grounded. all bulbs could be blown...but highly unlikely.
