Gday ate, geoff here, well it would seem that the brake lights are trying to earth through the park light system as they are in the same socket in the rear, check the earths from the light pack at the rear, and the then go from there tracing the earth circut even to the point of cleaning rust, mould/moss from them,geoff.

SOURCE: dashboard warning brake light stays on continuosly nissan altima

Try this, Since you are applying the hand brake. Manually pull up on the emergency pedal and see if the light goes out. If this does work then you could have one of several problems. but, I am thinking that you might be able to adjust the brake tensioner if this car has one.

SOURCE: timing belt 1994 nissan altima

My 1994 Altima has a timing chain on it and these are supposed to last the life of the engine. I would say unless you can really hear the problem then to leave it alone.

SOURCE: no pedal after flushing and bleeding 2003 Altima brakes

Try this a few times.Have someone in the car with it running and you go back to the bleeders and open the furthest one away and have them mash the pedal to the floor,Tighten the screw back up before they let up.Do that to both rear and what ever else lines you have off.By doing this with it running and the bleeder screw open forces any air out of the abs if any.After doing this a few times you should be seeing air and the pedal should come up.Just remember,start car,open bleeder screw and have someone mash it to the floor and hold it,quickly tighten bleeder screw and repeat a few times to what ever lines or calipers you had off.Make sure you keep full of brake fluid.We all tend to forget the simplest stuff when things don't work out right.I hope this works for you and will be here again if you need some more help along with the rest of us.Have a great day and thank you for your time..

SOURCE: Fuel Pump

You might not have to change the pump at all. Get the fuel filter cleaned thoroughly, change it if required(its quite reasonably priced) and since this has MPFI (multi-point fuel injection) engine, either clean it by adding some nozzle clearing fluid or get the nozzles properly cleaned at a authorized service station, where they can connect it to a PC to check the status of the tiny holes of the injector nozzle.............................sodeep

The passenger side brake light on my 1994 Nissan Altima won't stay on. It's the main four bulb assembly. If I hit the brakes the brake lights on both sides come on but then the passenger side goes...


Could be a weak connection in the harness or on the circuit board.
If you have someone hold down the brake pedal, are you loosing power or ground to the bulb ?

Why does brake assembly fail when I press pedal?


Check for loose contacts or wiring that is causing a short circuit near the brake pedal, or at the rear light.

Dash lights come on when braking


Ask someone to stand at the back of your car and apply brakes to see what it is happening. I believe you have a circuit malfunction on your rear lights.

My brake lights are not working. Bulbs look good, and it doesn't seem right that they would both fail. Fuse is good, and I checked voltage at the fuse box and get about 9.3 volts DC when I press down...


When the brake light is illuminated on the dash, it may not be because the hand brake is engaged. It can also mean that your breaking system is in distress. it is possible that you have a short somewhere between the fuse panel & light assembly or it is possible that the sensor for your rear brakes has malfunctioned. I apologize that I am not as knowledgeable on Nissan products, however I had a similar situation with a Dodge Durango, only to discover that the rear brakes were not functioning. I hope this helps =)

1994 Nissan Altima. Brake lights are out and can't get the car out of park. heard this is a safety feature. Any way to get around it


you can replace your brake switch, which is located by the pedal, or you can remove a little plastic cover by your shifter, stick a screwdriver in that hole and it will release the lock for your shifter

All of the bulbs for the brake lights are new all


Brake light switch, think it should be under the brake pedal. when brakes are applied, the pedal compresses the switch, which makes the brake lights come on.

Brake lights will not turn off on my 94 Nissan Altima


Your problem should be that the rubber stops that are mounted at the top of your break pedal came out or are worn down too much to press the buttons all the way in.
What they do is push the button that switches off your break lights when the break pedal is released (yes, kind of backwards way to design it, i know). That's why your lights stay on even when your car is off. I had to go to the junkyard to find replacements for mine and they are a ***** to replace.
They are chipped away easily by the break switches when your car shakes badly over a prolonged period of time. Like driving a couple of weeks on a bad front tire.
