SOURCE: tail light fuse keeps blowing

Terry: It's obvious I'm not dealing with a USA spec car, however, I had lived in the U.S. Virgin Islands and am quite familiar with the Bluebirds of the past. Nissan still uses the same basic circuitry designs as far as what circuits serve what. Here are the circuits to look at.
All lights which are switched on by the headlight switch. This includes the Cigarette lighter back light, radio light power supply, automatics have shifter back lighting as well as your climate controls and all dash lights. Your side marker lights are also served by this circuit. The dash lights go through a type of dimmer switch which essentially creates resistance, thus dimming the lights. Sometimes the clocks are tied into the circuits. Start with the simple things first and work your way in. There is a type of fuse called a circuit breaker which will plug into the fuse block in place of the fuse.
Get the same rating as the one you pulled out. DO NOT USE A JUMPER WIRE AND LET THE SMOKE OUT OF THE WIRES!
If the circuit breaker blows immediately, you have a serious short!
With the circuit breaker, if the short is not real bad, the lights will burn for a little bit before the breaker blows. Once it cools, it will close and the circuit will operate again. While it is in operation, you look for the lights that operate and the ones that don't. Check the ones that don't. Although it's rare for a bulb to cause a fuse to blow, it does happen.
I often find problems are due to radio installations or other types of installations. So if you don't have a factory radio or if you have some type of accessory which has been installed in the console or dash, this would be a prime suspect. Nissan's are not really known for electrical problems unless they have been in collisions. If your car has been in a collision, look in the area where it was hit. You may find a pinched wire or damaged insulation. I am not quite sure what model your car would compare to in reference to a US car.
The Bluebird's were 510's. Are the Maxima's now? What ever model it is, unless it has no sister model imported to the
USA, the odds are that the circuits are going to be real close if not identical! I hope I have been of some assistance. Let me know.

1983 nissan 280zx speedometer dosn't work

Download the Factory Service Manual at:
It has all the information you need to fix this and any other problems you may run into. The short answer is, if you have the digital dash it does work off a speed sensor, just not the same type as used on modern cars,
I also have a 83 ZX with the digital dash and I can tell you this FSM is invaluable.

1983 280zx turbo no power to lights for all gauges to illuminate in dark

Check fuses with a guage, not by sight. Get an 83 wiring diagram & start tracing. Check fusible links, switches & connectors first.

Not sure about the 83ZX but many (most?) cars have the tail lights on the same circuit as the dash lights so you can tell when your tail lights are out. Check the tail light fuse.

It's a fuse that is out. I think it is the one for the rear defroster or rear wiper. I did that once. I needed a fuse so I pulled it out and I had headlights but no guage lights. But when I had the key on acc the guages lit up.

check if you are getting any power to your dimmer switch, i had all gauge lights out and checked the dimmer switch- no power, replaced it w/ a junkyard unit and it works perfect now

1983 Datsun 280zx has the sensor light on, why??

You went over 30,000 miles and it is a one time trip in the odometer. Remove the right knee panel and there is a green w/ yellow stripe wire. Unplug it. The sensor light should go out.

I removed a set of after market fog lamps on my 1983 280ZX. Now my headlights, tail lights, horn and turn indicators don't work. Anyone have any idea what I should check.

Whoever put the aftermarket fogs in probably tapped power from your headlight circuit. That being said, you probably shorted out a fuse or two when you removed them. Just go through and check your fuses/relays under the hood and inside the cabin. Make sure to use electrical tape to tape off the old wire for the lights or this will happen again...
