Nissan march driver side park light and tail light problem

Hi, the park light and tail light on the driver side of my nissan march 2003 are not working, I have checked the bulbs are fine.

So, is it a wiring problem, please tell me where I should be looking at, thank you very much!

    Thank you for the help.

    The problem has been solved now: yes, the first step I've done was finding the fuse as well. But for nissan march, the fuse that protect the driver side parking light, tail light and number plate light was located in a white box under the head light on passenger side.

    However, when I replaced the fuse, and turn the lights on, the fuse blowed up instantly, then I was looking for the short. The short was caused by the stereo!!

    When I took the stereo out, I found that the ground signal wire of the stereo was connected with one had the same colour as the tail light does, which means the tail light positive power supply was short with ground, when I unplug the cd and rewired it, the problem's solved!!

Check the fuses- some car makes uses individual fuses per side. Just saw that in a mitsubishi- I believe Nissan does that too. Those fuses are probably under your hood.

04 Nissan maxima tail lghts don't always come on right away thought maybe headlight switch not sure need help

Download 2004 Nissan Maxima Lighting System Section LT PDF Manual 190 Pages Do you know how to do electrical testing with volt ohm meter ? Do you know what a BCM is ? COMPUTER !
Control of the parking, license plate, and tail lamp operation is dependent upon the position of the lighting switch (combination switch). When the lighting switch is placed in the 1ST position, the BCM (body control module) receives input signal requesting the parking, license plate, side marker and tail lamps to illuminate. This input signal is communicated to the IPDM E/R (intelligent power distribution module engine room) across the CAN communication lines. The CPU (central processing unit) of the IPDM E/R controls the tail lamp relay coil. This relay, when energized, directs power to the parking, license plate, rear side marker and tail lamps, which then illuminate.
Testing starts at 134

Hi my Nissan np300 got no tail lights dash lights and parking lights.Cheched fuses install new bulbs in the tail lights cheched wiring for brackage all seems good.

Did you change the radio out? Often people change the radio, cut the oem harness and fail to cover the dimmer lead which then can short to ground and kill the entire parking light circuit (which runs the listed lights)

98 pathfinder no tail lights or parking lights or turning signals, but head light and brake lights work

I would hazard (!) a guess that the relay in the engine bay is toast, the headlights are on a different circuit and a different relay. Check the fuse box if you already haven't, if all the fuses look good then verify that the wiring from the fuse panel to the tail lights is getting power. There is also another relay at the back on the driver's side for the tail lights if I remember correctly but as you have brake lights I suspect that there is more than one problem here.

Brake lights and turn signals work, tail lights will not come on. Please help

The brake lights and tail lights use the same ground. So if the brake lights work the ground is good.
There is a relay and then a fuse for each side.
I would check the sockets with a meter to see if the circuits have power with the parking lights on.
