    I have a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder and my tail lights and dash lights keep blowing a fuse. Everytime I replace the fuse, it blows out.....

    Do you have a solution?

    Does the amp rating of the bulb in the taillight match the amp rating of the fuse?  The bulb should draw a bit less than the fuse's rating.

Taillights go out when dome light is on


I'm not an expert on the electrical part of the 04 maxima. But I noticed on one of the websites I normally visit that it could be a blown bulb on the passenger side vanity mirror. Here's the quote:

2004 Maxima Tail Lights and Parking Lights fuse blows when interior dome light is on Discovered that my tail lights and parking lights fuse (next to the window washer box which took me a couple of hours to find!) would blow everytime I turned interior dome light on. First I thought it was my Ipod and then maybe moisture was getting in through a small crack in the left rear tail light. Sat in my car last night with a box of fuses and did everything one at a time. It was the turning on of my dome light that caused the fuse to blow. It was instant. I have a blown bulb in the passenger side vanity sun-viser flap. I will change that tomorrow and post an update.


He hasn't updated on the results of changing his vanity mirror bulb. I hope this helps...I hate car electrical problems...So hard to diagnose...

I have a 1995 Maxima, and the brake lights keep going out as the 15 amp fuse under the dash keeps blowing. The tail lights themselves work, and all the other lights work. No brake lights will work. I'm...


TO SIMPLIFY,fuse box-pedal switch-tail light cluster,maybe something inbetween but hardly likely...start with cleaning the contacts for the brake bulbs as they may have verdigris on the brass connectors,then change the switch,then worry.

2000 Nissan Maxima. Headlights work but tail lights won't come on. How do you fix the wiring of this?I have changed the bulbs and nothing. The brake, reverse, and turn signal lights work, so the bulbs...


tail lights work on a different filament than the rest of the lights you mentioned, it is possible both bulbs are burned out for that filament. if not, check the fuses as the tail light circuit in some cars is on a seperate fuse. the remaining possibility could be bad socket contacts.

96 bluebird le grand tail light fuse keeps blowing?


Anytime a fuse constantly blows, you either have a short in your wireing for that components circuit or the component itself is faulty. Inspect the wiring harnesses for each taillamp assembly and ensure no wires are damaged or loose. Also inspect wiring at the fuse box.
