First check your brake fluid. It may be low. If its low, have your brakes checked, they may be worn out and you may need brakes. If the master cylinder is tottaly empty, than you may have a leak. Here is a quick test for the E-brake switch. Look at the "brake light" while its on and pul on the e-brake while you are holding the release button in the handle. Pump the e-brake lever repeadetly and observe the "brake light" if it gets brighter and dimmes as you are pumping the e-brake lever., than the swithc is OK and you have a low brake fluid level. Hope this helps. let me know what you find.

1997 Nissan Maxima brake and battery lights on


John, I think I may have already answered this one.Check and clean battery connections and all grounds(loosen and re tighten all ground connections to give good contact), check belt for being loose. Nissan forums say it is a bad alternator.
Check the attached links,

How do i fix a 1997 nissan maxima taillights. i have no tell lights and not the fuse?


If you have no lights period I would check the wiring. If it's not the fuses (Under hood and inside). Just the brake lights check the brake switch under brake pedal.
Some Nissan's have a unit between the wiring that goes out. Trace the wires from the tail lights It would be in the trunk. Small black box.
Also check Maxima.org someone on there has the answer. ;Good luck.

Rear park lights stay on


Way under your dash beneath the steering wheel you can probably feel two small buttons on either side of the steering column. One is for your cruise control I believe, and the other controls your rear brake lights. You probably noticed some broken black pieces of plastic on your floorboard. That's the broken plug that kept the button pushed in to turn your lights off. Replace the plug and the lights will go off.

Replace center back brake light


If you slightly wiggle and pull back on it then it should release from the two metal prongs and it has one plug to remove from it and the replacement bulb should be #1156

Sounds as if you need the electrical portion of the ignition switch. The contacts inside are most likely worn out.
